First of all, can I point out that the covers of the Atomic Soda Minilabo and 2 Rouge polypro (short for polypropelene) notebooks are absolutely hilarious? Look at the eyes on that little green alien! I am actually using the "Love" notebook, which states, "product necessary for love." I’m not totally sure what it means, but it’s funny. Really, I fell in love with these notebooks for their covers alone.
Turns out, the cover is only the beginning of how GREAT these notebooks are. The big spiral binding is ultra durable, never snags, and very practical. I use this notebook to take notes, sometimes in places where tables are not readily available so the spiral binding and plastic cover makes writing in my lap totally comfortable. The pages of the notebook are lined on one side and blank on the other, which obviously means you can write and/or draw, but it can be used other ways too. I’ve been using it so that I take notes from a talk or meeting on the lined side, and then use the blank side to write down how I can apply the information to myself. It’s like having a sectioned notebook, but even more convenient! Finally the paper is great. It’s thick and smooth, but not too glossy, which is great for writing with any kind of pen (even the free ones from your insurance agent or school secretary). Overall I am a BIG fan of this notebook cute, funny, and totally practical, what more could a girl ask for?by
