I was really curious about this journal. It is very similar to other journals I have, but a little different. This journal is about helping you appreciating the little things in life. To help slowly change the way you see things in life.
A journal for appreciating the beautiful, the quirky, the surprising, and the overlooked.
Throughout the hustle and bustle every day, we must remember to slow down, unplug, and take in our surroundings. Her gentle prompts, paired with bright but delicate illustrations, will encourage you to reflect on those seemingly mundane moments and find what makes them worthy of holding on to. Maybe your watermelon at breakfast was perfectly crisp, or the brake lights of traffic formed a beautiful pattern. Each page offers a new opportunity to jot down a story, paste in a picture, or doodle something from your imagination.
This journal is very simple, cute, and bland. I don’t understand the orange peel image on the cover. Also, why does the orange peel have texture on the front, but not on the back? Why not keep things consistent? I absolutely love the cool gray background color. It’s very soothing.
The book is fairly thick, and would take a long time to fill up. You can even make this into a diary, if you wanted to. The page thickness is nice. Thick enough to use pen and it won’t bleed through. Finally, a journal that has good pages. Cute illustrations on ever page, that still leave room for doodles and writing.
This journal give you a prompt on every page. Things like, “Something you learned. Your favorite thing to give. An unexpectedly good color combination. Something you never travel without.” Ect. These prompts are supposed to help you find pleasure in the little things, but honestly, these are just boring. I feel like the author ran out of ideas after the first 20 pages. I’ll probably end up ignoring the prompts and use this as my own personal journal. This journal has a good concept, but it didn’t come out properly.
I received a free copy of this book from Blogging for Books, for my honest review. The opinions expressed here are my own.
