I'm writing this because the description given does not do this product justice. I am so happy with the quality of this diary and it feels like it is worth much more than what i paid. The color shown is pretty accurate as is the size. The cover is hardback and smooth, with the gold pattern feeling slightly raised. The black band that is woven into the back of the diary feels like a soft leather and the band comes around to the front of the diary and stays in place with a hidden magnet. It's great because it can prevent the diary from opening in your bag and the pages getting folded - but it also doubles up as a pen holder.
I found it so difficult to find the perfect diary that looked great, with a pen holder, case fastening and page ribbon/markers. This has all of that. Wouldn't bother wasting my money on a filofax anymore, which is so much bulkier and expensive. I also feel that the page layouts are much better than any other diary i have found. Most seem to give the tiniest space for weekends - but this is where i need the MOST space to write! what is great about the week to view layout is that there is equal space to write for all days of the week, plus a space for notes too. The added bonus is also the removable address book which is very handy. it slots into a paper pouch at the back of the diary. if you remove the Address book, it can be doubled up as an extra compartment to store small receipts or other small loose documents. The paper quality is good too. Pages are a yellow-off white color with curved edges which makes it feel much more premium too. Would recommend 100%
