Review: Hightide Square Weekly Diary

I was stumped for awhile when I was deciding what diary to buy for 2017. It's such a big decision and I had already bought a different book but I came across this square format diary by Hightide at an art supplies store and I was quite drawn to it. 

First things first, the layflat notebook paper is really nice and it comes with a plastic cover (always a good thing for a diary). It measures roughly 11cm by 12cm and weighs roughly 140g, which makes it very pocket/handbag friendly. Also included are 2 string bookmarks, a pen loop (fits the midori brass pen perfectly), a page marker and pockets in the front and back covers. 

The diary has a monthly layout, followed by weekly on 2 pages in a vertical format and at the back there are note/address pages. 
I'm not fond of the vertical layout usually but this one works. Instead of going by specific times, the layout is done up as morning/afternoon/evening which is good because I don't always have something going on and I like to fill in my own time. There's also lines at the bottom of each day for extra notes and the Saturday and Sunday columns are the same size as the weekday columns which makes sense as there's sometimes more to do on weekends. 

I adore everything about this diary, the size, the portability, the paper. The only downside is that it's such a unique size that I have cut things like stickers and notepaper down to fit it in but that's a price I'm willing to pay.
