Updating the Quotes Notebook

Was updating my Quo Vadis Habana turquoise notebook that I use to jot favorite quotes and stuff like that in, and decided it was a good photo opp. Love this Visconti Van Gogh Portrait in Blue fountain pen.

Pretty Blues

Because the Lamy Al-Star Bluegreen and Turquoise Quo Vadis Habana look pretty together!

Why Carry A Notebook?

I just liked this quote. Perfect reason to carry a notebook around!

“Write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable.” – Francis Bacon

Pilot Metropolitan is YUMMY

Oh holy cannoli this Pilot Metropolitan writes LIKE BUTTER on this Habana paper. I almost can’t control it, it’s so smooth. I’m so used to my Lamys it kinda throws me off hahaha.

Love this color combo: Caribbean Sea Ink + Turquoise Habana

I really love Caran d’Ache Caribbean Sea with this Quo Vadis Habana turquoise notebook (although the doodle is on Rhodia paper, cause I like to be all confusing that way). And the Pilot Metropolitan REALLY loves this ink!

I am a little sad though that the edge of the Quo Vadis notebook is already dinged up a little – not sure what caused it, it’s only been in my purse with other notebooks and a pencil case. No sharp edges. Oh well, now it looks lived in I guess!

 

Quo Vadis Habana in Raspberry

Oh you guys. The raspberry Habana is really really pretty too. This was the straggler from my notebook buying spree on ebay.

Rhodiarama in Lilac

Seriously you guys, I need to be stopped. I’m so lucky the husband is never on Instagram or Twitter or he might question my recent office supply impulse buys. So Shhhhh. (But OMG THIS RHODIARAMA LILAC COLOR!!)

Such a pretty pretty color. What makes it even more of an impulse buy is its LINED. I wanted blank so at least I could justify it as a backup to the Happy Yellow Rhodia. But nobody has blank anywhere, and I NEEDED this color.

Quo Vadis Habana Duo

I may have caved and bought a smaller lined 4×6 Quo Vadis Habana notebook too. The big one was awfully big to carry around all the time. I may have a problem, I admit.

The lined paper of the Quo Vadis Habana is actually really nice too.

Just playing with the new 4×6 Habana, the paper looks great with Diamine Ancient Copper.

Yay Color!

Colorful things make my soul happy. Mm mm mmm.IMG_20140617_172442

Quo Vadis Habana Notebook

I’m always on the hunt for fountain pen friendly notebooks and have this sickness: even though I don’t really USE them regularly, I can’t resist buying them. I’ve tried Moleskines, Leucchturm, Rhodia WebNotebooks, and Clairefontaine – and recently succumbed to temptation and had to try the Quo Vadis Habana. As a new user of the Habana line, I thought I’d share my impressions of this turquoise beauty.

First of all, how great is this color?? Of course I couldn’t resist it. How great does it look with the 2014 Limited Edition Neon Coral Lamy Safari?

I chose the blank journal because I like having the flexibility in case I wanted to use it for journaling, but also can’t write in a straight line to save my life. So I created some ruled/grid guides to place behind the paper. It works AWESOMELY. The red stapler is to weight the page down enough to see the lines in the pic.

I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the cream color, but I actually really like it.

Also, I need to comment on how soft this paper is. Cause it’s like SILK. I literally want to just sit and stroke it. Mmmm, soft. AND it lays flat. Like, easily and without any resistance. It’s like a miracle notebook.

And of course, it’s amazing with fountain pens!!

All in all, I am really impressed with this notebook so far. Once I actually find a regular use for it, I’m sure I might have more. But for now, I really am glad I bought it.
