The Life-Long Benefits of Journal Writing 

"The starting point of discovering who you are, your gifts, your talents, your dreams, is being comfortable with yourself. Spend time alone. Write in a journal." – Robin Sharma and "Journal writing gives us insights into who we are, who we were, and who we can become." - Sandra Marinella

There is a sprinkle of science behind our sparkle. Gifting that special girl in your life a locking diary does wonders for…

Journaling Encourages Gratitude


Sometimes, even the most “Mom, I’m bored” days can be the most powerful. Recording daily thoughts and feelings trains the brain to shift toward a more positive mindset by helping girls appreciate what they already have rather than focusing on what they don't have.

journaling improves confidence


One of the grooviest aspects of journaling is the ability to relive positive experiences. Writing down the highlights of a vacation – or even just the day – releases endorphins and dopamine, which boosts self-esteem and confidence.

journaling increases mindfulness


Journaling is a super way for girls to bring trapped emotions to the surface and release them. It helps improve resilience, overcome feelings of stress and anxiety, and become more accepting of the comings and goings of everyday life.


Love it or hate it, kids and teens today are the social media generation. However, did you know that journaling engages the right-hand side of the brain – the one responsible for creativity? It’s something social media can only dream of doing!

Well, after I purchased this diary for my niece on a whim I started to question if I was going to be happy with my choice. I received the journal gift set today and couldn't be more pleased! It's adorable, and all the little extras are perfect for any young girl! The cute little note from the seller kept me from procrastinating on this review. Thanks for the perfect Christmas gift, I'm confident it will be treasured..

I purchased a Life is a Doodle diary as a birthday present for my nine year. I was expecting something kind of chintzy, but what I got with something way better! The gift set was great quality, it had all kinds a little details that kids love, a few little extras that aren’t in the ad. And a very cute note from the family that owns this business -including input from their child. I absolutely love the set and I will purchase it again for other gifts for her siblings. It comes in several different styles. Even though I am pushing 50 it was so appealing I sort of wanted one for myself hehe. I would absolutely recommend it..

This diary is the perfect gift for my granddaughter! The packaging is very professional and the "extras" (sparkly pen, zippered pen holder and cute bracelet) are so fun. She will love it. Online shopping is not the easiest sometimes to determine quality, but this product knocked it out of the park!
