On My Agenda

I'm not usually so fickle but for some reason the agenda I had bought for 2013 just wasn't working for me. I always buy Moleskines and this time chose one of the Special Edition diaries, Le Petit Prince. Unfortunately, I had never been happy with this diary once I started using it, so I began looking into higher-end journals and agendas. I had had my eye on the Smythson Fashion Diary for many many years but could not bring myself to part with £140 for a diary that would only last one year and which I would have to re-purchase again the following year. I was happy to invest but only something that I would get more than one year's use out of.

So I began to research and found a Pocket Diary from Louis Vuitton that is bought with a separate diary that is inserted into a leather wallet and which can be replaced with a fresh book year after year. I chose the Japanese diary (written in English/French) as the days are unlined and it arrived with a separate address book and atlas which can also be inserted within the wallet. The leather finish of the wallet is available in various patterns, the usual LV monogram etc, but I chose the black Epi leather as it is a little more simple. Louis Vuitton currently offer a free hot stamping service, so I had my initials stamped onto the leather in silver. And I also came across a couple of inexpensive stylish pens so I have something pretty to write with too.
