~Review: Traveler’s Notebook + Smart Fit Pencil Case~

I finally bought myself a real leather Traveler’s Notebook. I wanted a cheaper alternative rather than buying the more pricey and popular Midori…I believe it’s just Traveler’s Company now though. I purchased the Robrasim Pocket sized Traveler’s Notebook in the color coffee and it’s adorable.

I first purchased my Webster’s Pages Color Crush Traveler’s Notebook because it was a bit more affordable, and I really liked the pockets that the Color Crush offered. Bought it in the color mint, even though they have a ton of new colors lately, I’m happy with it. I decided I wanted a passport sized TN and so I searched through Youtube and then I searched through Amazon. I found Robrasim and decided to give them a chance. Aside from them taking awhile to ship it, it still arrived fairly quick, but I didn’t do too much research on the company.  I don’t think I’ll be using this for in depth journaling, but I’m excited to see how I end up using it. Below you’ll find a video review, I might go on for a tad too long, but believe me, it was even longer than that. I like to talk. 🙂 So if you’re interested, feel free to watch that below.

 I have a few more stationery type things coming up that I plan on reviewing. I’m a sucker for stationery. It’s an addiction and I can’t help myself. >.< What’s one of your shopping addictions?

Thanks for reading and watching

    AW I love your traveler’s notebook! I’ve always wanted one mostly because I love hoarding notebooks but never got around to buying one 🙁 I really enjoyed watching the video, Kimmy!

    @Eena, I have an entire suitcase filled with used/never been used notebooks. I have a serious problem. XD But I’m loving this TN style of journaling. It’s wonderful.

    Thanks for reading and watching! <3

    Wow I love the look of the notebook, and the packaging looks beautiful! Genuine leather too!

    I honestly think this is a notebook I would love to use, but I would probably do that thing where I am afraid of writing in it too much because it is too nice. 😆 I really appreciate the review though. I like how you got straight to the point. The amount of videos on YouTube that have a LOT of ramble is so many. But your video is great, it goes through everything a review should really go through.

    I like that the size of the notebook/journal is small. I mean, I’m going by the size of your hands. 😆 It’s honestly super cute.

    I think that soft leather like the notebook cover does rub and scratch easily. Some bags are like that too, but they seem like they need to be clean otherwise it’s obvious. But as you said, it’s a travellers notebook so it’s kinda supposed to go through a bit of wear and tear.

    I used to really love small notebooks, but I bought a pack of notebooks that are more the size of your mint one. Small notebooks were sometimes hard to write in (depending on thickness), and it was weird that I could only fit a few words on one line before going to the next. They seemed to fill up quickly, but a little too quickly for my liking.

    I have thought about getting a traveller’s notebook but not quite sure how I would go about using it. 😦 But I like the “standardness” of this notebook, as so many out there just seem to throw quotes in for inspiration and stuff (which gets boring TBH haha), or be a bit too plain and have no character to them. I hope that there is a retailer out there that ships to Australia…!

    I also noticed your wear your watch with the face on the inside of your wrist – I don’t wear a watch anymore but I always wore mine like that too!!

    @Georgie, Thanks so much for watching! I tried to shorten it as much as I could, it was getting rather long. The journal is great, it is too small to do some in depth journaling but I’m having fun using it. It’s mostly to jot down whatever comes to mind. And I think I’ll get used to the wear on it as time goes on. XD

    They do have a larger size in this brand and of course there’s the Color Crush which is still my favorite to journal in, it’s just a matter of figuring out what type of journal person you are. Some people pack a lot in theirs and I barely even need three inserts…because I don’t use it as a planner. But I still like watching how everyone organizes and sets up their TNs.

    And my watch just feels much more comfortable with the face in rather than out. I always pull my wrist in to check the time too, since watches were always way too big for me, it would swing around that way. Now I have a watch that fits properly, but I still put it face in.

    Thanks again for reading and watching!
