2014 kikki.K Diary

Hello there =)
The holidays are finally here and I can't believe there's only about a month of 2013 left!
Although I'm not quite ready for 2014, I managed to pick out my 2014 diary which I am super excited about so I thought I would share it with you guys =)

The diary that I bought is from kikki.K which is a Swedish stationery company that sells the prettiest stationery. I believe they have stores around the world and they also ship worldwide.

The diary I bought is called the 2014 A6 Weekly Leather Diary in the colour Mint which is available on their website here. It was $29.95. I love the gold lettering on the cover as well as the pastel blue colour (although I wish that it came in a pastel pink). The diary also comes in a pastel yellow, a fucshia and a black. There is also a monthly and daily version, and they also come in bigger sizes. Personally, I like to carry my diary around with me pretty much everywhere I go which is why I picked the A6 size. Although it does look pretty small I think that it's the perfect size =)

The main element of this diary that made me buy it was the weekly view. Typically, most weekly diaries have each week on one page whereas this diary has each week spread over two pages which gives you more space to write in. Each day also has the same amount of writing space - you make notice that some diaries have less space for Saturday/Sunday.

Additionally, there is a space where you can write birthdays on under each day which I've never seen before and I think it's pretty neat to have.

Something that I only discovered after I bought the diary was that on each weekly page, there is an inspiring quote at the bottom of page. How cool is that!! =)

The diary also comes with two ribbons attached to it so you can easily flip to the current page/date.

Attached to the inner back cover is a pocket where you can keep miscellaneous things such as receipts, notes etc.

When you purchase the diary, it also comes with these stickers and this card which comes placed inside the pocket shown in the previous pic.

Here is what the back cover looks like- just plain and simple =)

Towards the end of the diary, there are also some pages where you can write in you friends' addresses/contact details, a wish list, websites etc.

The diary also starts from DEC 2013 and goes to JAN 2015 which means I can start using it in a few days =)

Overall, I really like this diary and highly recommend it. The only negative thing I can think of is that there isn't a place to put your pen which might be inconvenient for some people.

I know that $29.95 for a diary isn't the cheapest option but a diary lasts an entire year so I feel like it's not too bad. If you are looking for a more affordable option, Typo has a very similar version here for only $9.95.

Have you got your 2014 diary yet? If so, which one did you get/are thinking of getting? =)
