Amalfi Medium Refillable Leather Journal Review

Yesterday I received the most amazing gifts from Pen Heaven and I am so excited. As you may or may not be aware my favourite gift to receive is stationary. Whether it’s Mother’s Day, Christmas or my birthday you can’t go wrong with paper and pens.

So, when the opportunity came to review a new Leather Journal and Parker Pen from Pen Heaven SS17 Collection, I was a bit of an eager beaver and very happy to receive these items for review. I even squealed with excitement when my new gift arrived in the mail. It felt like Christmas morning.

I received my lovely gifts wrapped in adorable paper with lovely ribbon bows. The first item I opened was the Amalfi Medium Refillable Leather Journal. The Journal looked and smelt fantastic. The Journal cover is hand-made by a master craftsman in Italy. It has a superb finish and my name was embossed in gold. The Journal looks fantastic and is between A5 and A6 in size.

I chose a brown leather Amalfi Journal. There were others but this was the colour I liked the best and I thought it would go well with embossed gold initials and in my case my name. I love it. My journal is lined on the inside and fastens using the leather string. I’ve never had a Journal like this before and I really do feel special.

The parker pen I received is the Parker Jotter Premium West End Gold Ballpoint Pen. I loved the look of the pen as soon as I opened the box. The pen feels lightweight and is fantastic to hold. My new Parker pen is made from stainless steel and finished in a two tone effect of dark gold lacquer barrel with a bright gold cap and clip. The ballpoint pen came in a really lovely gift box, has a two year guarantee and is fitted with refillable blue ink.

I’m so excited to start using my new Journal and pen. I really love them and I was delighted to discover that my pen has my name engraven on it! This is just brilliant. I have a refillable journal and a refillable pen and they both have my name on them. I think that’s a real bonus when you order stationary and have the option to personalise it with your name or initials.

The parker pen and Amalfi Journal is simply wonderful and one of the nicest item I have reviewed this year to date. I love it!

    Gosh what a great gift to receive! I love the look of that journal, there really is nothing nicer (or more inspiring) I find than writing in a beautiful book. It looks like something you’ll be able to treasure for years. Combined with the personalisation and the Parker pen, it really does make for a lovely gift for someone special.

    Oh what a lovely thing to have! I hardly hand-write anything these days, but used to be such a prolific letter writer and would have loved these!

    What absolutely gorgeous wrapping! I’ll be honest and say I’m not really into stationery but I think they had a classic design and could be very useful.

    I’m a complete stationery addict! I adore the packaging it came in, it’s lovely when companies think about how it arrives. It gets me excited from the start. I would love a proper Parker pen, this looks gorgeous to write with. Enjoy!

    I’m the same as you I adore stationary!! Nothing like that feeling of brand new stationary! These look amazing, I really love the look of the journal and it’s great that it’s personalised and refillable.

      I love it but the pen is just as amazing! 🙂

    That’s very smart. I’m sure any stationery lover would go wild for that.

    I too am a major fan of stationary and I love that they have engraved both the pen and the diary with your name, a perfect gift for mothers day

    OH my goodness, your name YOUR NAME! I smiled when I saw the close up of the inside. Guess what I used to go nuts over, you know back in the good old day of actual paper and pens before the Internet digitalised the crap out of us all? Yes! Leather-bound journals with that tie string. I have 2 A4 size ones (one black, one tan brown) that I used to compile a 40th souvenir album for my hubby and wedding pics in the other one. Love the pen. Need a pen now I’ve gone back to keeping a written blog schedule instead of digital one. Fab goodies Ange!!

    The journal looks outstanding. I love the old fashioned feel to it. What an absolute treat this would be as a Mother’s Day present.

    Oooo what a gorgeous pen & paper set! It’s made even more elegant & beautiful with the stunning wrapping & bow that it arrived in. I too love pens & notebooks. The detailing with your name is really lovely & no one in the house can swipe them on you now lol
