Most girls have an addiction to buying shoes, clothes and jewellery, and even though I do like buying these things, I have a strange addiction to buying notebooks. I always carry a notebook with me, being a creative person I like to have somewhere to jot down ideas and sketch wherever I am, but I also like to have some special notebooks at home for my very best work. I find it important to have somewhere special to write, as it puts me in a good mood for creating.
Being a keen lover of fashion, when I saw that one of the catwalk giants, Christian Lacroix had a range of stationary, I was hooked. The range is absolutely stunning, especially the notebooks, such as this Chinese themed version. Sealed with the elegant gold Christian Lacroix Papier sticker, the notebook felt really special to open, and its covers are decorated with an intricate design made up of patterns, embossed details and a photograph.
The notebook’s inside cover is also decorated with a colourful pattern, and there’s a lovely art deco page where you can write your name before the first ruled page. The pages are lined, but are well spaced together, so I find them ideal for writing prose, poetry, or anything else that comes to mind after being inspired by this book!
