Rediscovering Moleskines

I love fun new stationery as much as the next girl but had to learn to tone it down when I spilled my purse and realized I looked like I was hooked on Miss Kitty. Cartoon characters were splashed all over my notebook, address book, pads of paper, and more. All that was missing was a big fluffy pink pouf on the end of a sparkly pen, and I would have completed the ten-year-old’s back-to-school wish list. Being in my early 30s and desperate to be taken seriously, I decided it was time to grow up.

This was right around the time when I discovered the re-introduction of Moleskine – a line of books and diaries with a rich history and long list of users such as Henri Matisse, Vincent van Gogh, and Ernest Hemingway. My shelves are now lined with black Moleskine journals, date books, address books and sketch books. I love the elastic band that keeps each book closed, and I feel very grown-up and organized having all of my books look the same. My favourite this season is their new Pocket Reporter Notebook with a hard cover that flips open – the book style all reporters use. Moleskine products are available in gift and stationery stores, and of course all of their goodies are available at
