A digital detox with Leuchtturm1917 at Bikini Berlin

As a blogger, I surf the internet on a daily basis and the majority of my day is spent online with less and less time offline. Texts are written on our laptop keyboards, photos and videos are viewed on the screen and most people also read books and other texts digitally.

Leuchtturm1917 Bikini Berlin

We are all so immersed in the online world that we’ve completely forgotten to live some of our lives offline too. When, for example, was the last time you had a proper book in your hand, observed the people or places around you with your own eyes and not through your phone, or even written something by hand?

It’s really important to me that I have a balance and come out of the digital world every now and again. I always write my to-do lists by hand, I own a small diary that I write all my appointments in and only ever read books of the printed variety.


I really enjoy writing things down, especially when I have a beautiful pen, notebook or diary – and Leuchtturm1917, which recently opened a box at Bikini Berlin, has the perfect offer. Here you’ll find a large selection of diaries, notebooks, sketchbooks and a lot more. Basically, all the things that make writing and drawing with our own hands so much more appealing. 

And you can really get creative with the Leuchtturm1917 books: sketches can be drawn and notes can be made horizontally across the page or in an orderly fashion underneath one other. The dotted, squared notebook in particular is ideal for this as you can really let your creativity run wild.

A very special highlight in their pop-up box at Bikini Berlin is the fact that you can have your name engraved into your notebook. It’s up to you which product you opt for, whether vibrantly colourful or sleek in black. Whether A5, smaller or larger. The great thing about it is that the engraving is possible in different colours. And of course it’s also up to you what you want to have written on your personalised notebook. 

As I want to use mine for my to-do lists, scribbling down ideas and as a diary, I had my blog name engraved in it – in silver. What would you choose?
