Sojournal - A Review


Today I would like to share my review of this awesome annual diary that is now heading into it's 7th year running.

I discovered the Sojournal in 2009 and absolutely loved using this diary to hold all my appointments aswell as just to look through and admire.

Here is my Video Review on the Sojournal that offers you an in-depth view of what each diary includes:

When I received this copy of the 2013 edition of Sojournal from Julisa to review, I was so glad to see that the general layout of the diary has not changed much at all, if anything it has improved and filled up with some wonderful new interesting goodies.

If you are looking for not your typical run-of-the-mill kind of diary, this is definitely a diary edition to look into. 

It is an A5, large spiral bound diary that allows easy writing access and opens flat straight away :D. 

It offers some wonderful features as added extras to each day and month such as meditations, astrology, tissue salt info, moon phases, planting guides, etc.

All these topics visible throughout the diary have been thoroughly explained in the first couple of pages of the book.

Amongst the goodies mentioned above, it also boasts:

a year on two-pages for easy annual planning

(The diary runs from January to December of each year.)

A well explained Chinese Horoscope:

In the beginning of the diary you will find some wonderfully colourful pages that include all the contributor and advertisers info. 

I am not a big fan of too many adverts, and tend to skip out most advertising when I come across it, but this is not the case in the Sojournal. Julisa has added her adverts in a tasteful, interesting way that makes you want to go through them all.

This is an excellent way to get your message across the globe!

The diary itself is laid out on a day per page, with loads of great added info on each.

Each Sunday has a wonderful space available for you to record the listed meditations (Found at the front of the book as well as on the Sundays)

Throughout the diary you will find the most amazing images painted by local South African artists. They really enhance the whole feel of the diary and give it a wonderful spiritual edge.
