Your Very Own Time Capsule

Friday, 1 February 2013

Less than a week ago I was checking out some new blogs following the #lbloggers chat on twitter, and having chatted to the lovely Cat from Cat's Chronology I hopped over to her blog to have a wee read - and I stumbled upon a post which seriously caught my eye!

She had reviewed an amazing little 5 Year Journal (I'll link the post here!) and I thought it was such a lovely little thing that I decided I wanted one too! So I immediately popped over to Amazon and ordered one.

The Q&A a Day 5-Year Journal from Potter Style is a cute, vintagey looking little journal which aims to 'help you make a time capsule of the next five years of your life in the simplest way possible.' It asks a question a day, with enough room to write a concise answer (excellent for someone like me who tends to ramble!) and has five slots per page, each with ''20__'' at the side to allow you to fill in the year for yourself.

The questions range from really general day to day questions like 'What was the first thing you ate today?', to much deeper questions like 'If you could go back in time and change something, what would you change?'.

For people who love to keep diaries and journals I think this is such a nice idea. It could be a nice little add on to a much bigger journal for some people, or for the lazier among us it's a fun way to keep motivated as you only have to answer one question a day - much easier to keep up than a daily update in a traditional diary.

My birthday and it's a question about pizza - could there be a more apt question for me?!

The Q&A a Day 5 Year Journal is available from Amazon (here) and I got mine for just £7.42 with free delivery. Annoyingly it's out of stock at the moment, but hopefully it will be back in soon. There are a couple of other lovely little journals in this range too, so be sure to check those out if this is the kind of thing that interests you!

Do you manage to keep a regular journal? Let me know in the comments below :)

  1. Thanks for the mention hun, and glad you like the journal. Your pics are much better than mine so good that you can show the journal in all its lovely retro glory! x

  2. Aww you're welcome, I was just about to tweet you and let you know I'd written a post on it! x

  3. I absolutely love this... it's definitely going on my Amazon wish list! x

    1. It's so cute isn't it! Just checked out your blog, it's lovely :) x

  4. I just bought one of these the other day too! I already have two other diaries but I couldn't resist haha, it's such a cute idea and will be nice to look back and see how things have changed over the years. (Although it's a little scary that I'll be 27 by the time it's finished!) x

    1. Eeek, I'll be 28, I hadn't thought about that! I know, I'm the same, between my diary, my blog and now this journal I think I'll have my life pretty well documented over the next wee while! x

  5. this sounds amazing! i really want one :)
