I am a recent Blackberry convert (from iPhone) and let me just say, I couldn’t be happier. That being said, there’s one thing that I won’t give up–ever. Not only does my Smythson Soho Diary keep my daily appointments, calls, meetings, dinners (and the list goes on) organized, but it’s also a chic accessory. There’s nothing like pulling out a rich leather-bound planner from your purse. I constantly get questions from people when I take it out. I think it’s a mix of shock, awe and a little dose of “Why is my life all in my one portable device?”.
What I especially love about having a Smythson diary is that I’ll be leaving behind a legacy. I’m on to my fifth book, and I still reference years past (where I dined on a memorable night, when my last doctor appointment was, etc.). As much as I’d love to keep a diary about my feelings, emotions and chronicling my life, this is the closest thing to it.
