Lunchtime field trip ~ Moleskine store

December 28, 2016

Working in the middle of the San Francisco financial district can be a little hectic during lunchtime. Even the elevators to get outside the office can be busy and crowded and take longer than I’d like (hello! I’m on a timed lunch!). Luckily this time of year between Christmas and New Year’s has a “Friday light” feel all week.

I just love the Moleskine store because it’s all so organized. And they have all of the limited edition covers that will make your nerdy heart sing. I’ve also been watching too many YouTube videos of amazing artists making gorgeous art in their Moleskine sketchbooks. I know the paper has little to do with the talent, but it just looks so inspiring.

And here is me being a bit of a creeper and taking a peep at the tester sketchbook.
