1) What is your current Moleskine notebook?

I have a pocket sized soft cover weekly notebook.

2) How do you use your notebook?

Although it is technically a little black book, my Moleskine isn’t full of phone numbers or big plans for date nights – not that I would be opposed to that! My notebook keeps my days organized and my deadlines met. I love that, on the left side of the book, I can plan out my week, and on the right, there’s a lined page for me to write on. There’s also something very romantic about the brand and its history. Not only does Moleskine count some of the world’s greatest writers and artists as fans, but the notebooks themselves are also crafted with care and beauty. I’m partial to the soft cover notebook, with its flexible leather cover and acid-free pages inside. It’s dainty, yet hardy enough to withstand the daily beatings that come with living inside my massive and always-full purse. Because the notebook does fit so nicely in my purse, I take it with me everywhere I go. And because inspiration strikes at odd moments – at a party, in line at the grocery store, watching a movie – it’s handy to be able to pull out my moleskine and write whenever and wherever I want.  

3) What's the next place you plan to take your notebook to?

I love to travel and 2010 is definitely going to be adventure-filled. My little notebook already made the trek all the way from New York City to Calgary, Canada! Our next stop will be Florence, Italy. I can’t wait to see what kind of creativity Italy brings out of me, and luckily, my Moleskine will be there to help me capture it all. 

4) What do you want to tell the world?

Find out what makes you the happiest and then try your hardest to do that thing as much as you can. Also, every experience we have, good and bad, can teach us something – either about ourselves or about the world. We need to be less critical of ourselves and look for the lessons in our successes and our failures. It’s sometimes hard not to say “what if?” But time being linear and all, it really doesn’t do us much good to be looking back. Live in the moment and have fun! 

5) Where will you and your notebook be in 5 years?

Wherever we are, we will be writing:)
