Wreck This Journal Review

Hey Guys,

I am well aware that this isn't beauty or fashion related but on this occasion I thought this could be something you're interested in :)

So a couple of weeks ago I ordered myself copy of 'Wreck this journal' by Keri Smith to keep me occupied throughout the summer. I have to say i'm not the most creative person in the world, so when it first arrived and I flicked through I felt a little deflated with a lack of ideas to bring the journal to life, but I soon found myself scribbling away and completing the pages quickly doing all different kinds of things on each page. I've always had trouble with keeping a diary or journal, and sticking with anything creative such as completing a sketch book in general really, so I decided to give wreck this journal a go and to be fair so far, so good! It asks you to make a complete mess of the pages by poking holes, staining pages with coffee, gluing in leaves, colouring outside the lines, and hundreds of other bizarre requests in order to bring the journal to life, and truly 'wreck it!'

It asks you to do all kind of bizarre things and using your imagination you interpret it how you like. I've had a lot of spare time to sit in the garden in the sun and glue, tare, write, and cut in this journal, and personally I absolutely love mine. However, if you're the type of person that is constantly busy and doesn't get 5 minutes to sit down, or you just hate anything artistic and creative, i'd say you probably wouldn't enjoy the journal!  Other than that it really gets you thinking outside the box, and in the end you'll have a fabulous journal to be proud of!

If you like the sound of the journal, you can order online at amazon (it has raving reviews on there!)

Meanwhile, if you want to see a flick through of an (amazing) completed journal, click here to view a finished journal on youtube.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how my journal turns out, and i'll let you guys know if it's any good in the end :)

Have you got a wreck this journal? What do you think of it? Let me know :)

Hope everyones been enjoying the summer time,
