Moleskine Passions: Music Journal
Being a total music geek, I love to learn about new and cool bands. I love listening to music on my ipod to and from work, travelling, going on short subway trips as I run errands etc. – It’s such a huge part of my self-care.
There are times when I feel slightly inundated with tunes. Last summer at Lollapalooza in particular – there were just so many bands, so much music and so many different things going that I wanted to research when I got back to Toronto. I remember hoping I had something to write in to document my fav tunes and musical journeys.
This summer – I have myself sorted. Why you ask? Well I picked up a ‘Moleskine Passions: Music Journal’. Here are the deets (it’s a bit luxe, but that’s me):
It’s fully embossed cover, 3 ribbon place markers and double expandable inner pocket.
6 theme-based sections to fill in: Artists, Lyrics, Playlists, Concerts, My Life in Music, Music Map.
6 tabbed sections to personalize as you wish with adhesive labels.
12 pages of staff paper and 28 blank pages in which to unleash your passion’s creativity.
Several adhesive labels: 80 to be used on the blank tabs, 150 with coloured icons and 12 to customize the cover.
13×21 cm, 5 x 8, 240 pages, acid-free paper.
This lil baby is something I keep in my purse and work bag – for easy access. My friend’s mentions, tweet’s, Facebook status music updates – all go into it. Gone are the days of me scrambling to pop it into my phone, scraps of paper or napkins.
It’s very sleek and just looks like an uber cool music notebook. Very organized and a great place to pop in newspaper articles, Metro pictures, concert tickets and working playlists for working out and ‘on the go’ travel. I’m always thinking about travel playlists so when I have a Genius Mix that pulls up a song that I haven’t heard in ages – the reminder goes directly into my Moleskine.
The other night going home from work ‘Animal Instincts’ and ‘You and Me’ from The Cranberries appeared out of the blue. It was so lovely. I scribbled in a reminder to make a playlist around it for future trips home from work. It’s the lil things people.
Yours in music,
