This is a comparison of the Original Leuchtturm1917 Notebook and Official Bullet Journal Leuchtturm1917 Notebook (henceforth referred to as Original and Official). The Official notebook as I understand it was a collaboration between Ryder Carroll and Leuchtturm. These are my personal opinions about products that I purchased with my own money. This is not a sponsored post.

I was very young when I was gifted my first official diary. It was an adorable little lined book by Sanrio featuring Little Twin Stars on the cover and some cutesy phrase I don’t remember. It also had a lock and tiny key (both useless but in my child mind felt like Alcatraz for my ramblings, musings, and complaints about my bratty sibling no one could access without the key).
