Everyone has that that ONE thing – an activity, a hobby, a passion – something that they love to do & which given them their inner peace & calm. For me, my that SOMETHING has always been writing daily journal or thought diary. My parents always used to make fun of me saying that I was ‘Born with a full set of teeth’ as I was always very mature & opinionated even as a kid. I always wanted to preserve these thoughts & ideas that were always floating around in my head. That’s the story behind my passion for writing & how this Blogging Journey’s seeds were sown for the first time!!!
The technology has advanced & keyboards & screens have replaced pen & journals, but my love for journals & diaries even today is as much as it was during those beginning days. Whenever I see a attractive & creative journal, I but it & use it for scheduling, ideation & scribbling my thoughts.
Recently I came across one such beautiful journal that’s meant specially for people like me – Women, Dreamers, Thoughtful Individuals, Writers…. MATRIKAS Women Journal.

What Sets The Journal Apart
I love to indulge into daydreaming (the reason why I call myself a dreamer) & love to create illustrations & draw a picture of thoughts rather than just writing down my thoughts at times. This product gave me that flexibility.
Apart from lined pages to write, it has 8 adult coloring pages with pictures of elements inspired from nature such a birds, butterflies, flowers etc. Sometimes coloring can be a stress buster, therapeutic & so much fun even for adults. It also has some blank pages to doodle, scribble or draw a picture instead of words the way I do. It has pages dedicated to list down things like places I would like to visit, Books I would love to read etc to provoke some thoughts on topics we otherwise tend to neglect or forget.
It has 3 sheets of themed stickers to make writing fun & more artistic. Just like a small toddler, I too loved to decorate my entries with some stickers which went with the theme.

Dreamer Mum’s Rating
I wonder how I did not stumble upon this product earlier. However, never too late. I love the journal & use it all the time to write down all blog ideas I get, deadlines for my work, plan for play-dates & outings etc all the time. Like I always say, there is always a scope for improvement, thus I give a 4.8 / 5 rating to it. I would highly recommend it to all women out there. It’s also a great gifting option for the powerful & creative women in family & friend circle.
