New Year, New Diary | Frankie 2013


As the self confessed fresh stationery fiend that I am - my favourite part of going back to school was always raiding WHSmith for matching folders and notebooks - the start of the new year is always an exciting time for me because it means I can throw out what has no doubt become a tatty and slightly embarrassing diary and replace it with a shiny new one. In fact I'm so obsessed with new diaries that I have been known to switch to an academic year planner halfway through the year just so I can start afresh, I think I MIGHT have a problem. 

I won't be doing that this year though because LOOK at how pretty this diary by the people at Frankie Magazine is! It has illustrations, monthly and weekly page view diaries, a budgeting section, a section for lists, a section for birthdays, a section for addresses....this diary was basically made for me. I tried to get it last year but it had sold out, so I basically wished away the whole of 2012 so I could get the 2013 one. I persuaded my sister to get it for me for Christmas, and other than a brief scary moment where I thought she might keep it for herself, it was FINALLY MINE.

I've already started filling it in (ever so neatly of course) and it makes me very happy to have this beautiful planner resting in the bottom of my handbag. I'm begging you guys, if you see me at all this year please ask me what I have planned for the rest of the week just so I can whip this bad boy out?

  5. Ahh I wish I'd got my act together and ordered this, it's gorgeous!
    I am also guilty of the switch to academic planners as an excuse for a new diary..

  11. I think it's the prettiest diary I've ever seen! I've seen a couple of bloggers saying they've got it and it really seems like the perfect blogging diary :) I have to have quite a light handbag so I've opted for a small floral one this year and I loves it =)
