moleskin + evidence of coffee.

moleskin 2

mess of papers

yesterday i woke up feeling slightly more like myself. so as a reward i splurged on a new moleskin-- because heaven only knows how long it's been since i used up the other and because i've taken to writing sweet nothings on scraps of white paper--which don't get me wrong, i adore, but the chance of me losing the idea that will one day make me millions is greatly increased by this loose-leaf method of organization.

so i get myself a lovely moleskin and my favorite paper mate flair pen.

and then i set about cleaning up the mess you see behind me in those photos.

(the other great hope of the lovely, little journal? less clutter on the desk. time will tell).

I carry the small one with me everywhere I go. It's a little scary/sad.

There is nothing like a fresh, new Moleskin.

withoutizy said...

you look cute.

I've been depriving myself of a moleskin (how can i justify the cost?) for so long... but I'm tired and why hold back on life's little luxuries? I want one to keep me company on the long train rides I'll have in europe, and so I don't remember my random moments of brilliance, despite how far and few between they are.

So, my shopping list is:
Super tall heels to make it easier to sneak kisses from a super tall man.
Moleskin.

Ahh, the wonder of a moleskin. Now more importantly, and completely off subject, you have the world's best bangs!

kate said...

There's something beautiful about a pile of scraps of paper.

Taylor Yves said...

Brissa said...

there is nothing better than a brand new moleskine. last year i went overboard and bought a moleskine notebook AND planner. worth iiit.

Claire said...

my god, you are so beautiful!

Mocha Mornings said...

Yay for moleskins, coffee stains, AND your cute bangs! I have bangs, too, but they pretty much never look that great.

Also, have you ever heard of Do or Dine in Brooklyn? There was an article about it in the Times and I only wish I could make a quick jaunt to NYC to try it.

OHHHHH, honey. My little scraps of paper exist just to help me remember to do the basics... like you know, paint nails, pack tooth brush for biz trip, pick up coffee... eek.

I love moleskines! Which kind did you get? Lines? No lines? graphing paper kind?

Everyone's already said it. But your bangs are quite adorable!

Q: Where did you get that lovely cream colored chair in the corner of your room? i love it and need one for the corner of my own room!

I too have notebooks where I record all of my brilliant ideas! Every girl needs one of those.

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

Ooooh! Good thinking! I really need one too...My sticky note collection is out of control!

Sonja said...

Oh man I have a notebook/sketchbook obsession...but they totally are a treat, especially moleskin. And haha my desk has coffe stains and chocolate crumbs that melt all over the place (its so gross) ..actually my laptop keyboard is no better.
oh and you're sooo pretty (as usual) but just sayin.

Ana Magdalena said...

oh Megan, you're so pretty.

also, your place looks so peaceful, I love the colors on photo no.1.

Nostalgia said...

This picture of you is beyond awesome!
Nabokov wrote his ideas and lines for future stories on index cards, then he played with them - arranging this way and that way - moleskin+scrapes of paper+pen(+you, of course) sounds like quite a novel.

Ariel said...

I love this so, so much!
I hope you have an absolutely wonderful weekend!

Roxanne said...

I always feel really special when I pull my Moleskine out. It's worth the price just for that feeling. xo

sophie said...

i decided that i needed to upgrade my moleskin to a journal/planner. you might imagine my disappointment when i got home, unwrapped it, and found that the planner part didn't start until january 2012!! fail. haha

lizzy said...

you are smokin' gorgeous.

JulieElizabeth said...

One of the most beautiful things in the world is coffee stains on paper

kura2025 said...

I think the coffee stains add character. You should keep those scraps...could be worth a fortune when you're rich and famous, lol!

mekatsu said...
