Some reminders for 2011...because life is too short for...

Last summer my friend M brought me this two napkins from their US trip and I keep them on my fridge as a reminder ever since. I do not have any resolutions for the new year as I do not really believe in resolutions...but keeping these little reminders in mind for 2011 sure won't do no harm...

New Year, New Diary - Cool Diary from teNeues

New Year, New Diary

After three consecutive years going through three different Moleskine journals I thought it was time for a change. Sorry, Moleskine. Like last year I wanted to get a red Moleskine calendar in first place but as soon as I saw it in the store I knew why I never gotten one and always went for a black one - the red is just not right...it's too orangey for my taste. And then I spotted this new (or new to me) CoolDiary from teNeues and was immediately sold. The red / argyle one is really, really pretty...but the black / pink one had to be mine. I always loved my Moleskine journals and the quality of them is of course excellent but, hey, why not try something new with a new year. And I'm not someone who follows a brand religiously. The teNeues Cool Diaries come in lots of different sizes, as weekly or as daily calendars and in different colors/patterns....you can check them all out at www.teneues.com.

Plus, now that the year has already started they are on sale at amazon.de. I ordered the XXL Cool Diary in Black/Neon Pink (also available in Red/Red) for 7,50 €, which is a steal I think...
