Tried & Tested: MFM Series #4

MILLAMAE Sweet Stationery Products

Another Monday and more colourful stationery to share! This week I'm featuring MILLAMAE and their sweet collection of hardcover diaries and journals. The end of 2014 is less than a month away (eeek) which means it's the perfect time to get your 2015 diary prepped and ready. I just can't stop staring at the diary cover as it peeks at me from my desk. The design and colours are beyond beautiful! MILLAMAE offers a brand experience as a whole - from their online store through to their actual products. The attention to detail is visible throughout. I included a few pictures of the items packaged up as everything is soooo lovely!

Overall Review:
I'm featuring the 2015 A5 Diary (Ditsy) and Blue Heart Lined Hardcover Journal. Now... it's tough to test out a diary for next year, but what I did was schedule out the meetings I do have planned, along with the details that are confirmed. The diary is designed for its purpose - it contains useful elements like a space for your details, a year at a glance planner on a double page spread and various other useful lists. Each diary page has a quote which is a nice touch, but it doesn't interfere with the planning space available. The journal paper is different to the diary's, but the quality is excellent all round. The journal pages are lined, but blank. It has a useful elastic closing which I quite like as I always slot in notes or inspirational articles into my journals. I started making my rough list of goals for 2015 and enjoyed using the pretty journal to help me feel motivated.

Best Feature:
The diary's best feature is the month at a glance page at the beginning of each new month. I love using this layout for planning meetings, so that at any given time I can glance over my appointments and not double book. Another element that is definitely worth a mention is the beautiful cover design. Having the diary and notebook on my desk really brightened it up - it's cheerful and literally makes me smile!

Useful For:
The diary is obviously useful for staying organised in 2015. There is ample space for scheduling and adding a daily to do list as there is a page per day. The journal is great to use as a notebook, but I think it's best suited to capturing your thoughts or goals.
