Countdown to 2011 #4: Chrissie Snelling Collection (Slimline Diary)


An early Christmas present in the form of an adorable slimline diary from one of my work colleagues.

IMGP3793Suited to me perfectly this slimline (perfect for your purse) diary features pictures of cats – mostly black cats. Glossy pages and vibrant photos this diary is as pretty as a picture.


IMGP3798  Being a slimline diary it is weekly view – with a small block for your scribblings. Notable dates and Year Calendar are at the front and addresses and notes are at the back.

Simple and neat – but gets the job done, fuss free.


Chromatic Days Diary 2011 Giveaway

Due to my lack of internet/laptop I am posting this later than I would have liked. But I thought I better get my skates on if anyone is to receive this before the beginning of the new year.

Any regular readers of my blog will know that my diary of choice in 2010 was Chromatic Days from Daycraft (Thanks Daycraft!) – so as an end of year treat I am giving one lucky reader the chance to own their very own Chromatic Days diary for 2011.

The diary that is up for grabs is the same as the 2010 version: read my last review here if you missed it. The only difference is the colour this one is Orange.

How to Enter:

This is going to be a simple competition – follow me on Twitter and Retweet this giveaway.

Closing time:

Saturday 10pm GMT.

Countdown to 2011 #3: Daycraft Vogue Diary

I have been sent another bundle of Daycraft Notebooks and Diaries  from their 2011 collection.

First up, featured as part of my countdown series is the Vogue Diary.

The Vogue Diary 2010 was reviewed by fellow blogger, Journalling Arts back earlier in the year – but now is your chance to see the 2011 one.

The main difference is the complete change in the cover: which now has a quilted effect:

But inside it is the same. Page a day  (half page on the weekend)- with time stamps (two lines per hour to allow you to schedule your day) with “notes” section at the bottom of the page.

Monthly Forward Planners and Monthly Overview pages are also included. So there is plenty of room for all your planning.

A great set of information pages at the front of the diary. As well as the usual International holidays and conversion rates, there is a more in depth international guide and nutritional and health information.

Verdict: this is going to be my a5 diary this coming year.
