Maruman Mnemosyne Notebook

Every since Jetpens introduced cheaper international shipping options, I’ve been making wishlists left and right. I received my second purchase in the mail last week and was most excited about this Maruman Mnemosyne notebook I decided to try out. Something I love equally if not more than pens are notebooks, especially ones with superb paper quality.

The one I purchased is the Maruman Mnemosyne Imagination Notebook (Graph) in  A4 size. I wanted a notebook to write revision notes and diagrams on and the Maruman is all I every wished for. I dislike using blank paper for diagrams because I’m a horrible slanter when it comes to writing, so graph paper is my best friend. The grid sizes on this notebook is just perfect!

Above is a revision sheet I made for my math class that just wrapped up. The paper is so smooth that your pen just glides on it like ice. That is probably because it contains 80 gsm paper. Apart from the great paper quality, I really appreciate how the pages are sectioned off as there is space at the top for a title and date.

The only downside to this notebook would be that it’s not ruled double-sided. Whether this is a problem or not really depends on what you are using it for. As a student, I would want to make as many notes as I could in a single notebook and especially for this one because the paper is such good quality that I just don’t want to waste it.

It’s safe to say that I am super impressed with these notebooks and will be purchasing more when I finish this one. (If I had it my way, I would probably buy 3 more immediately but the piggy bank doesn’t allow it)

MosseryCo Notebooks

20150521_013510

A couple of months ago I made a purchase from an Etsy shop called MosseryCo. They sell notebooks with very cute designs! I was watching a video from HappieScrappie when she pulled out her MosseryCo notebooks and I fell in love with the designs. So I went and ordered a notepad and three more pocket notebooks. I still haven’t found a use for the pocket notebooks but I’ve already used the notepad so I thought I’d share this store with you. They have a good deal where you can choose any three pocket notebooks and get free shipping. I chose that because I hate having to pay for expensive shipping and most of the Etsy shops charge a lot for shipping to Canada. It’s a sad life sometimes.

The pocket notebooks are not ruled so you can use it as a sketchbook or anything you want! The quality of the paper is very high quality and thick which is always a plus in my book. These pocket books are about the same size as the Moleskine pocket notebooks but a little bit narrower.

If you’re part of the Kate Spade Planners Club on Facebook, I’m sure you’ve heard of Katedoris. To make one, you basically take a Kate Spade passport holder and put notebooks in them like you would a Midori traveler’s notebook. I’ve seen several pictures of them and they are very cute. I would make one for myself but I haven’t gotten into the traveler’s notebook game yet. Anyhow, I know these notebooks will fit into a Katedori so if you were on the lookout then here ya go! Beware though because some old Kate Spade passport holders have smaller dimensions that won’t fit. These notebooks are approximately 8.8x14cm so be sure to measure before you purchase!

That is all! I just wanted to share these super cute notebooks with you! I want to add that the pug design is by far my favourite ❤
