au jour le jour

so here it is, my future diary for the next 12 months. 
stationery has always been one of my favourite things- going back to school at the end of summer meant time for a new pencil case and a new cartridge pen, and the start of a new year is now that moment for me. 
i'm ridiculously fussy when it comes to diaries. i need practicality- i like having the space to write millions of little lists and notes to myself. however, i tried a filofax style all-the-space-in-the-world type diary this year, and it was just too bland. i know that sounds incredibly superficial, but hey, i like having something pretty to work with!
j ended up buying me this for christmas, and it couldn't be any more perfect. it has monthly views, weekly views with extra boxes for lists, to do list pages and even a little scrapbook section at the back which is just a gorgeous collection of beautifully patterned paper. oh, and each month is separated by a double page spread of amazing little quotes and illustrations.
if you hadn't noticed, i'm pretty much in love with it! 

so here's to 2012. after everything that has happened this year, i am even more grateful for everyone in my life, and everything that i have. big love to you all, and happy new year <3
