Maintaining a journal is almost like a hobby amongst most teens and women. I won't get into detail about it because I've already written a separate post on my thoughts about journaling. If you'd like to check it out, here you go:

Journaling Sucks! Here's My Two Cents on That

There are so many kinds of journals out there that are slightly or extremely different from one another. Your preference can vary according to your vibe or the vibe you want to give off. So in this post, I've made a list of 11 different types of journals for you to choose from.


Classic journals are the diary style books with the black cover and slightly yellowed pages. Like Tom Riddles diary from Harry Potter!

Classic Journal

Size: 5.6 x 8.4 inches

Pages: 416

Blank premium paper with golden rim

Leather Bound

If you're going for a durable journal with a rich look, leather bound journals are a great option.

Handcrafted from genuine leather

Faux Leather

Most journals that claim to be leather are usually just faux (synthetic) leather so be mindful to read the product descriptions carefully.

I love carrying hardcover journals/books because their weight feels nice for some reason. I'm sure it's not just me who feels that way.

Blank Pages

I love journals with blank pages but I can't write straight to save my life! I guess these kind of journals are better suited for drawing and doodling.

Pages: 240

100gsm acid-free paper

Cream white pages

Ruled Pages

This is what I usually stick to for reasons mentioned above: my journal consists of around 95% of writing and 5% doodling, so yeah.

Colorful Pages

These journals are so pretty and they kind of remind me of the autograph books we had when we were back in school. I don't even know if kids nowadays use them anymore.
