Quirk of the Month: 3 Notebooks For The Organized Traveler

Belle De Jour’s most popular product is the BDJ Power Planner, but I’m more into their travel collection. With only a month left in 2016 (Where did time go?) I’m gearing up for 2017 with three main items from their shop.

1. 2017 Navi: Your Life Navigator, ₱598



I’ve been using this planner for two years now, and I’m looking forward to the 2017 edition, which I featured in “Planners For Travelers.” Some of the highlights are: hardbound cover with a world map etched on the design, travel tips, travel checklists, weekly horizontal page on the left (a must-have for me), blank note page on the right, and suggested travel destinations every month. In true BDJ style, there’s also a free booklet of shopping and discount coupons worth ₱25,000!

2. Quest Journal, ₱680



Feeling like an artsy, mysterious poet who’s always doodling and jotting down notes while on a train to his/her next destination? Then you’ll love this journal. It has a leather cover and two notebooks—one with dotted pages and the other with ruled pages. There’s a vinyl zippered pouch where you can store your passport and other travel keepsakes, and vinyl pockets for your credit cards, bus passes, and photos. Refill notebooks are available for ₱100 each. You may choose from four leather covers—taupe, blush, bronze, and teal.

3. BDJ Daybook: Travel/ I Go Places, ₱280



This pocket notebook makes a practical Christmas gift for travelers. Even if I’ve been traveling and organizing tours for loved ones for years, I still panic during the last few days before a trip. I’m always worried I’d forget to bring something important. This journal has checklists, expense trackers, itinerary guides, travel logs, and travel tips that will keep me organized and less of a worrywart.

The 2017 Navi, Quest Journal, and BDJ Daybook are available at National Bookstore, Fully Booked, Page One, and online at ilovebdj.com.


  1. Im being so makakalimutin na din lately and i guess i need journals na so i won’t forget anything. I don’t know im only 17 lang naman pero nagiging makakalimutin na ko! Hahaha i hope i could have one this christmas. It’ll be perffff ?

  2. Yas!!! Finally found something for my adventurous BFF! Thank you for giving me an idea on what to give her this Christmas❣ I think, that pocket notebook is perfect for her, since she doesn’t want things that occupy much of the space of her bag ? Not only it is cheaper compared to other planners, but also more organized ? And yes, I do look forward too, for that video hehe ❤

    Hmm that BDJ Day book seems interesting. Do you have a full review of it po? Anyways, same po tayo na laging worried na baka may makalimutan kapag malapit na yung tour. Hihi. OC! I think this Day Book would be very helpful for my 2017 getaways <3
