2015 is only a whisper away. If you’ve decided that next year is the one that will see you getting your act together, or have you searing off the smartphone, then nab yourself the journal or calendar of your dreams.
This canary number has us plotting a year of technicolor adventure – there may be an Umbrellas of Cherbourg-esque montage scheduled across the entirety of April. At €205 a Smythson of Bond Street diary does not come cheap, but they are chirpy as. Except for the being bound in cross-grain lambskin fact. Primary colours can distract from all ills.
Australian gal mag Frankie is one of our personal finds of 2014, so it makes sense to spend 2015 with their daily journal in constant reach. The Frankie Diary has a tendency to sell out, which is totally understandable when you have a glimpse at the polka and floral pages interspersed with illustrations throughout. Do they do wallpaper?
Irish Recipes Calendar
Fatti Burke is an Irish illustrator who has mouths agape on a regular basis on her nifty Instagram. The snippets of her work, as well as selfies featuring braids that Frozen’s Elsa would be majorly jealous of, has us in constant favouriting mode. This year Ms. Burke has crafted a calendar of double-sided recipe cards with traditional Irish dishes that you can keep on hand in the kitchen, corkboard optional. Lamb stew, boxty, soda bread. To a tasty 2015!
