Meet my newest companion, my Moleskine. Whether you need a sketchpad, music notebook, ruled journal, planner, travel journal, even pens and bags- there is something for you with Moleskine. I’ve used the planners for a few years now and have recently purchased the ruled notebooks. I think they are absolutely fantastic. Each Moleskine contains the Moleskine history and what it says, well, it’s better than what I could say about it! Here’s a portion of the history:
Moleskine® is a brand that encompasses a family of nomadic objects dedicated to our mobile identity: flexible and brilliantly simple tools for use both in everyday and extraordinary circumstances, ultimately becoming an integral part of our personality.
Moleskine was created as a brand in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two century: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin. A trusted and handy travel companion, the nameless black notebook held invaluable sketches, notes, stories, and ideas that would one day become famous paintings or the pages of beloved books.
Today, Moleskine is synonymous with a set of indispensable creative tools that help define who we are, identifying us wherever we are in the world. They have become a symbol of latter-day nomadism, and they are intimately tied to the digital world.

It’s inspiring to know that so many creative and inventive people used a moleskine. I encourage everyone to get one that would suit your needs.
They are great little friends to have with you-
