When I saw this journal in the store, I thought it would be perfect. The artwork is absolutely beautiful, and I love the ribbon marker and the copious amount of pages. So I bought it, thinking it would be a great journal. And I was right...until I started writing in it. The binding is so tight around the pages that as soon as you begin writing, a very unattractive crease forms on the front, and after one day's use, the journal beings to make a cracking sound that makes me think that it won't last very long. And this is after writing one day. Aesthetically, this is a great journal, but as far as practicality, it majorly fails. I would not recommmend this to anyone as a journal, but rather as a table decoration. It is certainly beautiful, but it pretty much gets ruined after you start writing in it. The upside is that the price is very cheap, but the journal itself seems very cheaply made as well, so I guess I'm getting what I paid for. I would recommend Barnes and Noble's Basic Black Journal instead of this one. It has the same dimensions and ribbon marker, the same number of pages (possibly more), is cheaper ($4.95), and is very durable. Much, much better. http://gifts.barnesandnoble.com/Home-gift/Basic-Black-Lined-Journal/e/9780641586040
I know the Floral Portrait journal is pretty, but if you actually plan on writing in it, it will fall apart. If you need some nice decorations for your home, it's perfect. But that wasn't what I bought it for, so I am rather disappointed in my purchase. I, for one, will not be buying one again.

The front cover is pretty, and it has a purple ribbon book-mark to keep your place. The lines are purple and small, but I had a hard time keeping the journal open to write. But nevertheless, it's a good journal.

The lovely cover invites one to look inside. The lines are very helpful in recording one's thoughts or special happenings. I gave them for Christmas presents to special people I love.

I've have this Journal for maybe about 3 months now. At first I was very hesitant to buy this just because people said it fell apart  and I didn't want to risk it, but I took a chance and I'm glad I did.I really love this journal I've written in it everyday since I got it and nothing had happened to it. It's a beautiful Journal. It's definitely more purple than blue. Overall I really like this journal, it's super girly and pretty. Would recommend.

I bought this journal a few days ago to scrapbook/journal every day and I love it so far! Yes once you get it the binding is tight and you need to work with it, but once you start writing in it or taping things in it gets much more easy to work with. All of the pages and bindings seem to be sturdy and the pages are higher quality. I love the design on the front and the pages on the inside. I'd definitely check it out in stores though, It is a bit compact and hard to work with at first so if you do not like that, then don't buy it. But I feel as if it is well made and sturdy enough to put many memories in it. Hope this helped! Blessed be.

The cover of this journal is beautiful but I wanted an elastic cover the keep the journal from opening and I also wanted the lines to be more spaced out. This journal is irritating to write in because it doesn't lay flat nor is there an elastic closure or clip to stop the pages from flipping over constantly. I also thought the journal would be a bit wider in width and longer in length, which is why I didn't purchase the journal. However, I did like the fact that the journal looked more like a novel rather than a journal.

A beautiful journal, I don't know why people are saying it would fall apart. Mine kept together quite nicely. I highly recommend it for young writers.

Upon its arrival I was happy to see this journal was just as lovely as i'd hoped it would be. I love the fact that it's lined, which keeps my writing neat, as opposed to the inevitable slanting that occurs when I don't have any lines to guide me! I like the cheery blue color with the bright flowers. It draws me to use it more readily than if it was a plain journal. I give it two thumbs up.

This was a birthday gift to a friend. It's a beautiful blank book.
