Journal Porn & Writing Tools

Good morning, afternoon or night! How are you all? Good? Good. Today's post? Well I've been doing a bit of pinterest stalking lately and a few beautiful writing journals caught my eager eye! I don't know about you other writers out there, but I have a bit of a journal fetish :|

I love journals. Love love. I have too many already but can't throw any away and still find reasons to buy more... so of course I love perusing the jaw-dropping stunners of journals on pinterest. Here are a few that I had to repin for loves sake :)

(I feel as though I ought to apologise in advance for just how many there are, like I said, I love journals)
This is my favourite - owl! via

So I think I'll leave you with that for the time being :) I love love love journals! I want them all! Do you have a journal fetish? Mine is becoming a bit of a problem - I don't have enough room to put all my empty journals!

Now... onto the business end of things, what are the essential items required for journal writing? Pen and paper? Yes. However I've just outlined below some of my very favourite tools to use when writing and where you can get them from!




Do you like what you see? Oh my goodness gracious I wish I had the coin to own all 9! So, I've chose three pens, three journals, and three desk accessories I think would be a huge improvement to my writing zone!

  1. Papermate Flexigrip Ultra Capped Pen - available from Officeworks.
  2. Metal Twist Ballpoint Pen: Organisk - available from Kikki-K (I actually have this pen! Love!).
  3. Philosophy Pen Shell & Floral Black - available from Officeworks.
  4. Contrast Notes - available from Typo.
  5. Leather A5 Notebook: Sand - available from Kikki-K.
  6. Philosophy Pack of 3 A6 Notebooks - available from  Officeworks.
  7. Right On Desk Pad - available at  Typo.
  8. Marbig Desktop Organiser - available at  Officeworks.
  9. Letter Holder: Card - available at  Kikki-K.

The prices range from $2 to over 50! But I love them all :) Is there anything is there that you'd maybe take out? Anything that you'd add? Keep an eye out for my next post, which is on my essentials of novel writing :)

Much love to you all xx

  2. I love journals so much! I buy them because they're beautiful and then they sit on shelves for months until I've finally filled one up! I probably have 3 or 4 empty ones at the moment--need to pace myself but can't stop! Thanks for sharing the lovely pictures!
