You’ve heard of planners that make your life easier, thanks to the many tabs and calendar pages where you can note down your to-do lists, but how about a diary that makes you feel better about yourself? It’s a tall order, but these The Paper Bunny diaries, a first for the local label, certainly do the trick.
Firstly, they’re gorgeous. Just a look at them, and you’ll feel like you have to get your life in order, simply by filling the pages with plans and notes. The three covers include a nude pink buttery leather, classic luxe black, and cool white marble print, all with gold-foil detailing. Flip inside, and lay it flat (the clever design allows you to do so), and you’ll find monthly tabs with beautiful illustrations at the start of each month.
Which brings us to the point – these monthly dividers, and weekly pages, feature specially-designed inspirational quotes, bold or hand-lettered, that are meant to quietly inspire. “The qualities I most admire in women are confidence and kindness,” a quote by Oscar de la Renta says on one page, “everything is gonna be alright”, it says on another. Whimsical, sometimes too typical we think, but you never know when you need that boost of faith.
Other than that, they’re easy to carry around, while there are functions to keep you organised. We like the spacious weekly views that leave enough room to plan and scribble, as well as a spending and saving section, and birthdays section. Even if you’re not a diary-keeping kinda girl, you’ll soon wanna be one.
