2021 Planner: Midori Professional Weekly Vertical Diary (Slim A5)


We're in the tail end of 2020 and it's diary/planner buying time! 
I looked around for awhile before finally deciding on a Midori professional slim A5 diary. 

Here were my requirements when I was looking at planners: 

  • Able to use it for work
  • Good paper
  • Easy to carry around
  • Not too small
  • Vertical weekly layout
For reference, my 2020 diary is the Hightide Nahe schedule book. 

Before I continue, I'd like to point out the planner does not come with the buckle pictured. 
However, it is also by Midori and I highly recommend it. 
It secures the notebook closure and is also a penholder. 

The Midori planner has a nice soft touch matte cover that looks very sharp.
The notebook paper is Midori's signature off white paper, which is amazing quality paper.

It comes with the standard yearly, month pages, a small section for notes, to-dos and small sections of international holidays and Japan metro maps. 

What I really liked is the vertical layout fit nicely in the slim A5 size. 
As a bonus, the Travelers Notebook pencil board fits perfectly. 

My planner starts in December and I can't wait to start using it. 
There's something about starting a new notebook that is just so satisfying. 

If you'd in the market for a new planner, this is one you might want to look into too.

REVIEW : Maruman 100th Anniversary MiniMini Binder + Loose leaf refill

MARUMAN (Japanese stationery brand) is celebrating its 100th year anniversary this year and there has been quite a big line up of limited edition products! The latest to hit the shelves are the MINI MINI BINDERS and the matching loose leaf refills!


There are 4 in all [pls note the black CROQUIS binder is only available from LOFT and not sold anywhere else] with the DO IT YOURSELF! edition being one of the most popular. The cover is a slip pocket so you can customize it yourself. (Hence the name)

How it looks on the inside
The 5 ring binders feature covers lay flat when open making it very easy to use.

Loose Leaf Refill sets

There are two different sets available.

Size difference from the usual sized product
Note: The mini mini size is a LE run but you can cut the normal sized paper to fit your mini mini binders.

The entire collection
Overall Thoughts
This is such a cute release and the binders are actually quite functional. The size is perfect for those on the go and it looks great in pictures too. I hope they make this release/size permanent!
