How it all started

I have always loved notebooks. The first one I ever owned was a black pocket notebook, that I got from my grandparents on my tenth birthday. I was so happy. Wrote three incredibly cocky pages, and then I… stopped. I am not quite sure why. Still wanted to get another notebook though, haha!

I actually did not start journaling until two years ago, in 2015. It all began with a Moleskine. I had read some reviews, and I just had to get one. And, once I had one, I wanted to write. I did not know what though – it is always difficult to start. There is something about those blank pages that can be both exciting and daunting. But I really, really wanted to write. So, I did some journal prompts, made some to-do list, started writing daily entries and suddenly I was stuck. Haha! I think I finished that first notebook in one month. So I bought another. Then another. Aaand another… I have bought way too many notebooks, haha. Small, big, fancy, simple, branded and unbranded. Some gorgeous leather ones. I like them all.

I do not know, there is just something so… nice about notebooks. Empty, blank notebooks that are full of possibilities. Used ones that are full of memories. It is, well, nice.

I also feel like writing in a notebook is so beneficial for ones health, memory, and general well-being. To be able to write down everything,  anything you want… It is therapeutic, in a way. Calming. Especially if it is in a nice journal, haha!

For an outsider, it might seem a bit crazy. And yeah, okay, maybe it is. A bit. But everybody has got at least some kind of hobby, right?

So I will continue adding to my collection. Gotta catch ’em all, you know. 😉 Haha.

Bye, for now!



A small introduction


My name is Elin, and I am addicted to notebooks. And if you have found this blog, I am guessing you are as well. So hello, my fellow notebook-addict! Nice to meet you. 😉

I am not very good at introductions, so I will just go ahead and write down some random, but kind of relevant things about me:

  • English is not my native language, and so I occasionally duck things up. If I make a grammatical mistake, please feel free to correct me! (Just don’t be a douche about it. I have a veeery fragile ego. Haha.)
  • I am in my twenties.
  • I am a student, but on my free time I like to hang out with my friends, read books, write, etc etc. I also really, really love coffee.
  • This list is starting to feel like some weird dating profile thingy. Sorry about that, haha.
  • I also like long walks on the beach…
  • OK, gonna end the list now. Haha.

But, what will the blog contain? Well, I will post about journals. Reviews, regular blog posts, comparisons, and so on. Fun times!

Okay. The introduction is done. Woooh. Are you still here? If so, thank you. 🙂

Well, I guess that is it, for now. Goodbye! I hope you have a nice day and/or evening! 🙂
