New Year, New Diary

Posted by on Jan 2, 2013 in Home & Garden | 4 comments

Starting a new diary is probably my very favourite thing about New Year. If you haven’t already got yours, can I suggest an Action Diary from We Are What We Do? I wrote about their wonderful stationery in a previous post, and have been inspired by the good actions they promote every since. So I’m delighted to add to my collection with an Action Diary:





These A6 paperback diaries are the perfect size for carrying around in your bag, and the full colour embossed covers are very cheerful – choose from aqua, line, red, grey, purple and pink.

The diaries are full of reminders of little things you can do to make the world a better place, and these are given with fun graphics on the left hand page of each week. Here are some of my favourites:





Here are the full diary specs:

Week per view
A6 (105mm by 148mm)
122 pages, 140gsm
Matte coated cover with deboss detailing
Ribbon in contrasting colour

The diaries also include 2013 and 2014 year planners, notes pages, and an ‘action tracker’ so you can tick off what actions you have completed, and add a few of your own. I aim to complete all 141 listed actions by the end of the year for sure.

You can see more imagesof the diaries and buy from here – each diary costs only £6, plus £2.50 shipping within the UK (check the website for postage further afield). We Are What We Do dispatch within one working day by first class post, so you won’t have to wait too long to start filling in your diary. Do take a look at what other products they sell too – such a great non-profit company.

Finally, three things to know about We Are What We Do:

  • Their products are printed on FSC paper
  • They ship (not fly) their stock from their printers in Singapore
  • All profits go directly to their school and community projects

What’s not to love? Thanks to We Are What We Do for sending me the diaries to review, I’m off now to do action 074: “turn away from your screen and … blink”

  1. Very cool idea! I need one that also tells me to eat well and exercise often 😉

  2. I’m a little bit obsessed with diaries and this one looks so cute – I love the little action quotes. x

    • It is very cute – and a different action quote on each page, such fun – and a lot of attention going into the detail. I am a little bit obsessed with diaries too! Thanks for your comment x

  3. What a great idea! I love them.

    Although it’s a common misconception that shipping uses less carbon than flying. It depends on the type of ship, but most freight shipping is just as bad as planes. Shame we can’t get our goods transported by train as that’s the only real winner.
