      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Quality look and feel

      Regular readers of my reviews will be familiar with the fact that I love stationery, and as a result of this I often get bought attractive bits and pieces for my birthday or Christmas presents. This is how I came by the flame tree notebook with peacock detail.

      About
      Let me start off by clarifying that this is no ordinary notebook. It is a hard back book with a metallic cover and 144 a5 pages inside. The paper of very high quality and cream coloured with lines. That's not all though! The book also has a magnetic edge so you can shut the notebook closed down the edge that is usually open. There is a double green ribbon page marker that is useful for marking pages with pertinent information on. Finally, in the back cover is a small cardboard folder for tickets and receipts so it's really handy on the go.

      In use
      I use this notebook every day for making lists in at work and attending meetings. It's an ideal size for my handbag yet big enough to write in at meetings. The quality speaks for itself with this notebook and it is a true pleasure to own.

      Price
      My mum picked this up from TK Maxx at a cut down price but the brand new versions are £12.99 on the play website. I know my mum did not pay this much, and there is a small fault in the cover of my book where the dye has run from an insert page on to a couple of the pages at the front of the book.

      My thoughts
      Whilst it is one of those almost "too nice to use" items, I force myself to use it as it would only sit gathering dust. The peacock is truly beautiful, depicted in a tiffany style glass effect with the gold embossed lettering at the bottom discretely branding the book as a flame tree notebook (a sign of quality). I love the detail of this notebook and am careful to look after it at all times. It has received many compliments whilst in my posession. Although it is expensive it really is worth paying a bit more for the quality this stationery offers.

      Final word
      This notebook would make a great gift for fans of quality stationery and certainly ranks high in my opinion. It is quality made and nice to write on and a nice size for transporting. I like all the detail from the ribbons to the magnetic edge and the pocket at the back and will enjoy using it for many months to come. The notebook is available in a few styles other than the peacock so there will be something to suit most although I would add that they are probably more girly and a man would not probably want one. Shop around for a better price though!
