I am one sick puppy when it comes to stationery.

If, like me, you find notebooks powerfully erotic AND you despise new year, then you’ll know the only good thing about NYE is getting a new diary.

I’ve been in a bit of a Moleskine rut of recent years, but after casting several alternatives I’ve finally discovered my ultimate new diary for 2016.

Marjolein Delhass is a Dutch graphic designer (cool) who embosses her notebooks and planners by hand (also cool) and they’re so unbearably beautiful it’s been torture choosing just one.

So, thank you Marjolein, because this year on 31st December I’ll be gladly enduring the forced jollity of a dreary house party/ Jools Holland’s Hootenanny/triple fare taxis/the grinding, bleak inevitability of time passing, merrily knowing that I’ll be able to start using my CLASSIC BLACK EMBOSSED WITH GOLD FOIL DIARY in the morning! Come new year’s eve, come!
