I just had to do an update on this Chic Sparrow TN! This is the most beautiful leather I have ever laid eyes, or hands on. If Jennifer made a personal size, ring bound planner in this leather, it would be over. Hands down I would chose it over any other leather, even over the Malden. I regret any doubt I had when I first opened this notebook, about the pen loop. I’ve never liked having them in the past, but I love this one.
I originally planned on using this Nightingale as a referral notebook, but the moment I touched it, I knew I had to use it everyday. I love planning in my personal size Malden, so the only other option was to replace my Mr. Darcy wallet. You guys, i just cannot tell you how much I love handling this leather. It is just so buttery soft!
Here is a peak into my wallet! Check out the video below if you’d like to see a more detailed look and my opinion of this Chic Sparrow.
It’s already gotten a few scratches…it actually scratched pretty easily, but I like it.
I haven’t put anything in the pockets yet, but I’m on the search for something as beautiful as this planner! My first insert is a notebook I made out of Tomoe River paper.
I just like to flip through it when I have a moment because I have filled it with positive quotes, and of course, who doesn’t like the sound and feel of Tomoe River paper?!
My next insert is from Amazon, and this is where I keep my cards, cash, checks and coupons. I just stacked two on top of each other and inserted them through one string. I tried to post the picture of the cash zipper pocket, but Photoshop wouldn’t let me open it to edit it because it had cash in it…crazy right?! I guess they want to make sure no one creates fake money 🙂
I made dashboard covers awhile back from scrapbook paper and laminated them. Just helps with the separation of sections in my wallet…and of course they look cute.
Lastly, I purchased some dashboard covers from Chic Sparrow, and used them as picture holders.
And here is the back pocket. This is where I will eventually train myself to put receipts 😉
Side view (How awkward am I holding this thing?!) I just have to mention the pen loop again! Not only does it fit a decent size pen, it doesn’t pull on the stitching like previous version did, and it doesn’t smash my inserts. LOVE IT!!!!
