Two Daycraft Notebooks: One for review and the other to give away!

To celebrate my very first sponsorship and the fact that my blog’s pageviews has exceeded its very first 10,000 views, I have decided to do my very first review and giveaway! I was quite surprised, upon returning from a busy weekend, to find  that my blog has already hit 10,000 pageviews – earlier than I had expected! Reaching a five-digit number of pageviews for me is a milestone: it means that I have managed to persist in staying on the…

Acid free paper

A rare, short post in the middle of the week… In my quest for good paper on which to write with my fountain pens, I have been snooping and sniffing around for quality paper.

  This review comes very late, but then again, this blog didn’t exist before 2011.

Picture of the Eiffel Tower of Paris. Labelled “Bamsamkinbyul photo diary — Parisgraphy” (I had to recheck the spelling of the Korean name — I’m not good with long…

Le Petit Prince weekly scheduler

I walked into the Young Generation shop at Nex today and a neat little notebook caught my sight: It is a weekly diary with the theme of The Little Prince, renowned literature of France. It has a knob on the cover around which I can hook its elastic band to secure the notebook. The leaves of the book are made of nice, thick card-like paper. The material reminds me of recycled brown paper. On one side of each page, there…
