Top 10 Notebooks

Top 10 Notebooks

Here at Stationery Lovers we use lots of notebooks in all shapes, sizes and styles. We've picked out our ultimate wishlist, some of which are cheap and cheerful and others that would be used for very special writing assignments (or simply stored away in a drawer because they are too nice to write in!). Here are our Top 10 Notebooks.

Nickie's Top 10 Notebooks

Top 5 notebooks Nickie

1. Liberty Print Purple Tanjore Lotus A5 Notebook £18.95 from Liberty - A classic Liberty print design with matching page marker ribbon, elastic closure and ivory paper. I would save this luxurious notebook for a special journaling project such as an important event or a big family holiday.

2. Leuchtturm1917 Pocket Dots (lime green) £8.50 on Bureau Direct - This notebook is smaller than the ones I normally use but I'm falling in love with dot grid over squared pages at the moment and this lime green colour just stand out a mile.  Gorgeous. 

3. Sh*t I Gotta Get F*cking Done notebook $9.95 from Cool Material - I've been trying to find a UK store that stocks these ace little notebooks but every website that features them points to the Cool Material store. They do provide international shipping but it would be overly expensive, I imagine. If anyone knows of a UK stockist, do please get in touch.

4. Moleskine Evernote £15.97 on Amazon* - This classic Moleskine has specially printed pages and stickers that trigger a scanning process when photographed with your smartphone and uploaded to Evernote. This allows the content inside your notebook to become digital, searchable and shareable. I've recently found out that Livescribe is to be incorporated with Moleskine and Evernote too which just creates a gadget-analogue full circle for me. Awesome! 

5. Christian Lacroix Astrologie Flocked journal £27.60 from Christian Lacroix (sweetie) - I just want to delve inside and see the astrological colour plates. This would be a great daily journal if there were more pages (it has 144 so you would have to fit three days worth of thoughts on each page) but the cover is just so beautiful.

Sian's Top 10 Notebooks

Top 5 notebooks Sian

1. School Of Thought Notebooks £15 from The Journal Shop -  set of three, exercise notebooks, each one carries an introduction to a great Pessimistic thinker on the inside front page, their name beautifully printed on the cover - and otherwise empty pages for your own projects.

2. Blah, Blah, Blah Panama Notebook £45 from Smythson - Smythson make the best notebooks IMHO. The paper is exquisite and has to be used to be believed. Beautifully packaged in a gift box, you can even have them personalised with your initials. Once you've gone there, there is simply no going back. 

3. Mark's Tokyo Edge Le Zippe Notebook £9.50 from The Journal Shop - This notebook really does have it all. Contained within a handy zipper pocket, your notebook is perfect for storage of your pens and essentials when you are on the go.

4. Iconic Essay Book £8.50 from Stickerstack - This is my current notebook of choice, though it has to be said that I am using it as a doodler and not as a traditional note taking book. Compact and wonderful, Iconic has become a firm favourite of mine since discovering the brand a few weeks ago.

5. The Tab Notebooks £8.13 from Amazon - A set of four tabbed notebooks that are colour coded for easy organisation. They are just perfect for project work.

That's it for today. What's your notebook of choice?
