A diary is a best friend everyone must have. In this era of technology, social media and virtual relationships, this one friend will stay truly close to your heart minus judgement or prejudice. I have been keeping Diaries since forever now and I feel it is more like a hobby than a necessity or compulsion for me. I use it as a vent, as a planner and as an advisor. It helps me over view my startup strategies, my business plans, the major events that took place in a year and some personal things that I wanted to write in ink.
If you are a long following friend, you’d know my passion for dragonflies. I connect to dragonflies as I find their short yet super active life intriguing. I like how they are the only flying creatures who can fly backwards and side ways. I like how people are both afraid of them and consider them harbingers of great news. Not to mention their beautiful variety that somehow reminds me of my own various talents and quirks. I have connected with dragonflies ever since I was a child and found this seasonal insect an inspiring insignia I keep close to my heart.
Outside : Would you be shocked now at my selection of this gorgeous olive green dragonfly printed diary which over and above spells FLY at the tail as that is something that I admire. Subtle nuances in design. The company also gives options in a lot more colors and prints. The gold foil printing on the poly-silk like fabric is perfectly hard bound and snaps close with an elastic.
Inside : The inside of this diary is however what makes it ever so interesting!
This diary in particular is a woman’s journal and start with a beautiful calligraphic introduction page, further leading to an introduction from the makers – Matrikas.
It has ruled sheets undated so you are not bound by them to write. The unruled scribble pages are fun to draw on or write random ideas. There are 8 adult coloring pages intricate and it’s not child’s play to color them! There are a few pages to write addresses and a page to write the names of books you may want to read and places you want
to visit. The best thing of this diary are the Sticker pages at the end which have amazing headings, ideas for you to fill your diary with.
On the last cover of the diary is an envelope for keeping tiny notes or bills or some money Incase your out for a walk to write!
It is a beautiful gift for anyone and retails at INR 450 which is slightly over priced for a diary but well worth in this case. You can buy it from here!
