Astier De Villatte ‘Ma Vie’ Diary
The unmistakably French brand has designed these diaries with 18thCentury French antiques in mind – specifically the shop’s geometric floor tile pattern, which is as chic as you’d imagine. You can get the design in a range of shades – from bright to pastel and even monochrome. Being organised never looked so good.

A journal fit for a budding novelist. This hardback cover is swathed in Liberty’s iconic paisley print in cotton – so it’s soft as well as beautiful. The lined pages are practically begging to be filled with magical prose, or your wishes for 2020.

Made in Scotland with genuine leather binding, it’s also durable enough to stand the test of time.
Made from 100 per cent recycled materials, including fibres from the olive plant which gives the notebook its distinctive green colour. High-quality, vegan-friendly, sustainable, and affordable: what’s not to like?
