Product I’m loving —
These minimalist notebooks are my favourite for recording all sorts of notes. Hemingway, Picasso, and many others used these notebooks for their thoughts and ideas. I keep two pocket-size notebooks as my meditation and gratitude journals along with a regular size notebook for work-related notes.
