Before getting into the actual notebooks, let’s discuss the qualifications the notebook needs in order for me to buy it:
- The notebook must have soft, gliding pages
- It has to be super cute
- When I open it, it has to be easy to write on both sides of the page
- It has to be reasonably priced (on sale is amazing also)
I love love love notebooks, people are obsessed with and splurge on shoes, purses, cars and a bunch of other things, I, however, lose all self-control around notebooks. No matter where I am, I tend to scout out cute notebooks. I have to admit that depending on what I use them for, it takes a while to fill them up. Regardless, let’s jump into all the cutest notebooks I have at the moment. These are all from Indigo.com, I don’t think they are still available but they have other cute ones also, so do not worry. (*disclaimer: this is in no way sponsored by Indigo or anything, this is entirely my opinion*).

Let’s look at some cute notebooks, shall we!
Like A Boss
This notebook is a recent purchase of mine, and I have to admit it was bought on a whim. I was in an awful mood, and that day was weird in general, and I saw this notebook and I just bought it. The pages are so smooth and amazing, and glossy. I use this notebook as my to-do list notebook, and really any form of a list I need goes in here.
This notebook is one of Indigo’s classic format I guess you could say, they make these soft journal covers, which are very cushiony, and with each series, they change the look of it. I have many of these, but I decided to show this one since it was the one I am currently using the most. The pages are soft, and despite it not being a spiral notebook, it is very easy to use both sides of the page. I use this notebook as a journal and absolutely love it.
I got this notebook as a gift a few years ago for Christmas, and I am in love… is it possible to be in love with a notebook? It is probably one I will keep around forever since you can easily remove the bulk of pages once they are used up, and replace it with new pages. It smells like real leather (weird I know, but bear with me), and the entire notebook has this welcoming vibe to it, and I can often picture myself in an old library writing in it. For this notebook I often write down any story or plot ideas that spur to mind, and sometimes pan them out, or write them in this notebook; The notebook itself inspires me to write.
Simplicity is Key
This notebook is a rather recent addition, which I got for Christmas from my parents. When I got this notebook, I was feeling very confused and sort of all over the place about my life, so I decided that this would be my rant notebook. What I mean by this, is that any time I just need to let something out whether it be happy, or sad, angry really any emotion, I just write it. And the goal is to fill it up by the end of 2017. In a way, it’s for me to remember all that I felt in the year, and how much of a rollercoaster there was. I also like writing about new hopes, dreams or goals that I have in mind. Once again the pages are amazing, and when you do open it up it is a spiral notebook.
As you can tell, I am quite passionate about my notebooks! Once again these are from indigo (i am not sure if they still have them), but they are not sponsoring this blog post or anything. I hope this inspires you to go out and buy some cute notebooks, to inspire some writing!
