>> and unique notbooks...

at such affordable prices, these would make lovely christmas gifts which are both handmade and inexpensive to ship!  

{ product review }
whitney most generously agreed to send me one of her lovely notebooks//journals as a product review. I was so happy when it arrived in the mail yesterday...


the notebook itself came in very good packaging...


it is of very good quality {love the baker's twine} with a cute, modern, quircky pages within...


it is so perfect! I have been writing my blogging posts down on paper before typing them out, and this is a cute/wonderful place to put them! it's just the right size to tuck in my purse for those "inspiring" moments. ;) 


Although the shipping was a little while {I can't complain since this was so generous of her, and it wasn't an actual purchase} I definitely HIGHLY recommend purchasing from her during this holiday season!!!
