Not sure which Journal to get?

Review: Moleskine bullet journal

Hi Lovely, I wanted to let you know that some of these links in the post are affiliate links, this means that at NO extra cost to you, I earn a small commission when you purchase. I usually use this to support my sticker addiction and make fun things for our audience!

My very first journal was the Moleskine Dotted Journal; in New Zealand you can easily grab a hard or soft cover book from Whitcoulls for $39.99 or it is available on Amazon for $22.95. So lets get into the review! Review: Moleskine Bullet Journal.

I think right off the bat for me I do like that this brand is readily available to me at almost every store. What is a positive is you can by a watercolor moleskine journal but it does not have the dot grid and you cant really use it as a notebook/journal due to the thick paper!

Take the "What is my Bujo" Personality Test!

So right up front the cover is soft. This started annoying me after a while as it bends quite easily and starts looking pretty tatty quite quickly. Overall its much wider than Scribbles that matter, and also very thin feeling

There is an elastic closure band and again, this looses elasticity with use quite quickly.

The front page is again rather generic and while it offers a reward for finding, does not quite inspire greatness.

There is no table of contents and the pages are not numbered. There are 192 pages and they are 70gsm, so the lowest quality paper we have in the review series. The dots are 0.5cm squared and there are 37 dots across and 48 dots up.

It has a singular ribbon book mark, and a reasonably robust pocket in the back.

Pen testing is where this paper really falls over. It bleeds easily and ghosts terribly. When we pop some water color on, it doesn’t fare well at all.

Pros:

Well – not many, but I will have to say the large size makes it a fun test journal and a good starter if you aren’t going to get to fancy with art in your journal.

Cons:

The thin paper, the bleeding and ghosting, lack of page numbers

Overall:

Its pretty average and wouldn’t feel it is the cost that is is. I would rather spend my money on a Lemome or Scribbles that Matter

I give it a 2.5/5
