A Look Into CBTL’s Giving Journal 2017

There’s always something to look forward to during the year end for Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf avid customers like me. Stamp collection for the CBTL’s Giving Journal has been like a tradition already having gone three cycles with their hard-bound journal as planning companion. This year’s Giving Journal 2017 doesn’t deviate much from their tried and tested form from the Giving Journal 2016. The earthly colors of the pages, the inspiring quotes on weekly spreads, the coupons and the solid simple design lines which a lot of people came to love are still there. The changes for the Giving Journal 2017 aren’t drastic but more artistic on the aesthetic that centers around the theme for 2017 “The Cup that Changes Lives”. Let’s take a look.

Five Reasons to Get the CBTL 2016 Giving Journal

It’s the time of the year again when we get to decide which journal we’ll have for the coming year. It’s such a crucial choice as it would be our constant companion for the rest of the 365 days. Most of the time, my usual compact moleskines would do but there is something about having a large journal where there’s enough space to write down random thoughts, doodle or even paste in random items on the pages itself. There are so many to choose from but like this year, it would seem I would settle on Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf’s the 2016 Giving Journal for my large journal. Here are some of the reasons why I chose this one to spend some of my time to collect stamps (and add calories) to collect.

Moleskine Mini-Sticker Icons!

My 18-month Weekly Notebook Diary Moleskine with sticker icons

Call me old-fashioned but despite having a digital calendar on my smartphone, I still use use my trusty Moleskines to refer to past trips and also for those random notes I jot down on the road.

I recently got my new 18-months Weekly Notebook/Diary Moleskine, and having used these legendary notebook for years already, it’s a delightful surprise to see that they now added those fine looking icon stickers to label the pages. The graphical icons were really neatly designed. I guess with so many imitator and competitors now for that handy notebook they need to add something new. And I liked it!
