I’m usually quite an organised person and since having a baby and with another one on the way I’m not nearly as organised as I need to be. Add in the fact that I’m a blogger and have started my own handmade business, I really need to get on top of things pretty quickly. As the New Year gets closer it’s time to make a fresh start and get organised, the best way to do that is to have my 2017 diary ready.
Pen Heaven contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I’d like to review one of their 2017 journals or diaries. I chose a 2017 diary as I have so many dates I need to remember, blog deadlines and business orders. I chose the Amalfi Medium Refillable Leather Diary in a vibrant hot pink colour (my favourite).
I was also given the option to have the front of it personalised with initials, and I chose the initials ‘LPP’ to represent my new handmade business La Pom Pom and my name initials are ‘LP’, so it fits for two different purposes.
It arrived quickly after ordering and was lovingly gift wrapped. As soon as I opened the package I could smell the leather of it immediately and I was absolutely delighted at how stunning it was, I’ve already started putting it to good use.
The diary inside the cover consists of lined pages (one page per calendar day) and also has pages for other information such as telephone numbers and addresses. There are also pages with a notes section and then your standard international calling lists that you tend to find in most diaries.
The Amalfi Medium Refillable Leather Diary is priced at £34.90 (it costs an extra £5 to have the diary personalised with up to four initials) and comes in a variety of beautiful colours. It is a little more expensive than other dairies available and I personally think the price absolutely justifies the brilliant quality that the diary is, it is made from real leather after all and I can see it lasting for years and building character within the leather as time goes by too.
The diary is also reusable and you can simply remove the 2017 page per day insert and add a new diary insert into it each year starting at a small cost of £7.50.
Pen Heaven have a broad range of diaries and journals at different price points. They also have a great range of other stationery too, make sure you pop along as you’ll find some great gift ideas for Christmas.
