Hello, everyone!

One of the things I really enjoy every new year is spending the time to find the perfect new journal and a few new notebooks. I love having beautiful pieces in my office and on my nightstand. You could call me old fashioned as I  never loved the digital calendars or journals. And it’s quite a feeling getting in my hands stationery that smells the freshness of the new, full of white empty pages, ready to be filled with plans, goals, ideas and my own thoughts. 

This year I didn’t have to search a lot as I came across Soothi’s leather handmade journals and I knew I found the piece I was looking for. Soothi is a company where you can find accessories and objects,thoughtfully designed, for your desk and your work space. From journals, notebooks, and custom stationery, to boxes, organizers, personalizers and beyond, at Soothi you can find the designs and the pieces that will help you be creative and stay organized.



My new journal is a squared shape and handmade genuine leather journal. Stars and constellations are embossed on front and on the back cover. The first thing I noticed when I got it in my hands is the scent of the leather. It’s the scent of a new piece combined with the old, rich history that only an authentic leather piece can create.  Every piece of cotton paper inside (there are 100 white pages) is tree-free and environmentally friendly. It is also bleed-resistant and fountain pen friendly.

In the past, most of my journals and planners where all pretty the same, standard pages with dates and some quotes for inspiration. But now, I find the white pages extremely intriguing. They stand in front of my eyes, white and clean, ready to be filled with my thoughts and ideas, work schedule and plans, travel and other bucket lists and much more.

The journal itself it’s more than a simple notebook or planner or even a personal journal. I could say it’s my creative source and the place where I can be myself. The place where whatever I am dreaming, I can truly design and plan and furthermore, make it true.

Whether you are looking for a new journal or just a gift for a loved one, Soothi’s Stars Square Leather Journal is a great choice!

    I’ve never been very big into journaling but that doesn’t stop me from buying notebooks and journals like they’re going out of style!! Haha! I love the cover on this one. Super gorgeous!! <3

    The journal is look beautiful dear. I love also to have a book planner and journal too better than digital, as I love make a handwriting. For me its better to handwriting on a white paper than in digital.

    • February 3, 2018 / 8:07 pm

      I love handwriting too, nothing compares to it!

    Lovely journal! I love it’s unique style and look. Personally I’ve been going with Apple’s notes app for my notes because those are always with me and don’t add any weight to my bag when traveling. Anyhow, a traditional journals are super cute and it’s never the same thing to just write things digital.

    • February 3, 2018 / 8:09 pm

      Yes, exactly, nothing compares to journals and handwriting!

    I really love the look of leather journals! It makes me think of what they would’ve used generations ago (before the idea of a blog ever existed). That one is beautiful!

    • February 3, 2018 / 8:08 pm

      This is exactly how i felt about it, and it smells so good too!

    I love journals – I started getting these as a present every yeah after we watched the Hobbit because I also wanted to start chronicling my adventures.
