i go through notebooks like there's no tomorrow. i never managed to finish them but my standard MO is to obsess over one and fill it with all sorts of to-do lists and then somehow manage to lose the notebook on my way to or from work. so, if you're ever on the F train and find a pretty notebook filled with things like "invite brooklyn design ladies over for tea party" or "buy more wellness wet food for the cats" it's probably mine. i'm thinking of switching over to this plaid number soon- plaid seems to be creeping up everywhere right now so i might be working up a mini-trend soon. until then, you can pick up these cute portuguese serrote mini notebooks (6" tall) right here for $8.
