Product Name: The SMASH Folio BY K&Company

The SMASH Folio with embossed chipboard cover stores all of your favorite things in ultra-girly fashion. But these aren’t just your ordinary journal pages, they’re covered with romantic imagery and “you’re a lady” captions to make design a snap. Like a mint julep on the veranda. Includes 40 pages and a SMASH pen and glue stick. Book size is 7.75″ wide x 10.25″

My thoughts? Smash it… as in, smash all of your favorite things, memories, moments and notes… LOVE it.

I love journals and I tend to be a bit picky about them… they must be: Well made, pretty, durable and just the right size. This one passes ALL of my “must be’s” and then some. This thing is SO COOL! It comes with a pen that is both a pen and a glue stick, because…well, you just never know when you might need to plop something in there that needs to stick, like a concert ticket or a photo, right? These are the neatest journals… great size, great fit.. so durable and you will love the look and feel. I can get pretty gushy over cool stuff like this and I am gushin’ all over the place for this one. 2 Thumbs up from moi!

Where to purchase? So excited to report to you that I just spotted these on Amazon for $9.74 and they ship free with Amazon Prime. And guess what? Everyone else gushes about them too … 5 star reviews out of 18 reviews!! I will be giving these as gifts, so neat.
