As you all probably already know I am totally in love with Lulu Guinness designs – especially the stationery. To accompany my notes journal I got for Christmas I bought this 2017 diary in my attempt to become a super organised person this year… I have to say my favourite aspect of this dairy is the personalisation.
Each section of the diary includes a ‘title page’ with a Lulu pattern; red and white lips, black and white stripes and plain red each with a subtitle giving an insight into the forthcoming pages.
One of the opening pages is for personal details – a space to write your name, telephone number etc. alongside the quirky ‘favourite lipstick colour’ section – the perfect section in case the diary is misplaced.
The following pages include a ‘Year At A Glance 2017’ showing month blocks which you can circle or highlight. The next section ‘Month At A Glance 2017’ gives a miniature calendar for each month, labelled with the date and day of the week for easy planning.
Following this is the ‘Week At A Glance 2017’ giving each day with a date and a space to write, as well as a notes page on the right side of the double spread for extra notes and information. You can also enter contact details so it is an ideal tool for when you are out and about to record all those important new business connections.
One of the most unique points of the diary is the notes and doodles pages; the pages leave space for random doodles, a shopping list, a to-do list, International dialling codes and 2017 National Holidays. These elements – especially the last two pages – are cultural and global. The front cover is undoubtedly chic and stylish; the perfect handbag accessory for an organised fashionista. The black and white striped string ensures that you can keep your place in the month within the diary.
