I love the simplicity and history behind these little notebooks. I've tried various styles in the Moleskine range but have settled on the softcover option. I use the 18 month planner and the large notebooks - ruled to use as a journal and newly-bought squared to use as a visual journal in which I will place small memories, may they be photographs, letters or even just cinema ticket stubs. The city guides I find invaluable, I like the idea of creating my own memories of my travels in amongst the pages. Each time I re-visit a city, I add new finds to it. I enjoy looking back over my previous travels. There is now even an iPhone app, so I can look at notes and memories in a concise and easy manner on-the-go. Next on my list to buy is the Passions range, particularly the Style journal, where I will be able to document my wardrobe. But I like mostly how new styles, ranges and limited editions are brought out constantly to maintain my interest and curiosity.

    I cannot go without them... I have to have things written. On the cellphone is different. I can't explain why...

    kisses to you Paula:)

  3. Ah yes - I got my first one for Christmas and they are lovely! I use mine for writing down ideas for blog posts! I saw one for recording details of films you watch - I definitely love the idea of that!

  4. Me too - we own so many. They're also the only diaries I'll use. I've been known to buy a different one, get a couple of months in and then have to go and buy a moleskin one :-) x

  14. Incredible! I still keep my yearly planners for 10 years, it's nice to revisit my uni days and internship days...ah the hardship of being a poor fashion student.

    I have 3 brand new unopened Moleskines, haven't decided to use them yet. I'm feeling inspired now.

  21. Love Moleskines too. Got my first city guide when I was in New York and used the blacnk pages at the front to write my travel diary. I have done the same on my last two trips to Paris and keep using it to add recommendations/places I've visited to.

  24. I'm glad to know that someone else shares my addiction! I have more of these than I use, but the ones that I do use I can't live without! I need to buy a new 18 month planner~

  25. Wow, and I thought my collection was epic! I'm going to treat myself to the London on the day my exam results get firmed up and I know I'm 100% moving there - god knows what city I'd live in next!

  26. Love your collection and so beautifully photographed. I was hoping to love the City moleskines when they came out, and bought a Vienna one - but there was too much bleed through using a Muji gel pen, and the maps seemed to be divided up very strangely, found them virtually unusable (but then map reading isn't my strongest point at the best of times). Thank you so much for linking up with my 'Show Me Your Stationery' Post: http://t.co/xZSuk1Y

  27. I adore Moleskins! I have one of the thin pink ones as my go to list book, that I keep in my purse, as well as a journal! I might be hoarding them, actually!
