The Check Yo’ Self Journal is the ultimate creative diary to unlock your inner creative. It’s PERFECT for those who need to take a minute to slow down and Check Yo’ Self, and just allow your mind to go somewhere magical. What we LOVE about our Check Yo’ Self Journals is that there are little reminders throughout to note down the things you’re grateful for, the way you’re feeling and even prompts to list random acts of kindness you can do for others. Designed by one of our biz besties, the amazing Brisbane-based Digital Artist Kimberly, this gift is sure to put a smile on the face of your giftee.
It’s the best feel good journal for those with a busy mind. Need to get your hands on one of these? Order yours here. Don’t forget to check out the rest of her range, she also stocks some bad-ass Christmas greeting cards that are packed with personality.
