As we are fast approaching the end of 2021, I’ve started looking towards the new year and have been making plans for 2022. I’ve written a daily diary since a young age as I find that writing my thoughts and feelings onto paper at the end of each day is not only cathartic but a useful resource to look back and to reflect upon further down the line.
Starting Afresh For The New Year
I’m really excited to share that alongside my daily diary, throughout 2022 I will also be filling out the ‘Serenity & Solace Journal, a brand new and incredibly beautiful book recently sent to me by Maria L’Warren.
Whilst studying Graphic Communication Design at Central St Martins in London, Maria L’Warren spent almost four years conversing with the general public upon impressionist and mid-century art at the Courtauld Gallery in Somerset House. Maria witnessed the calming and healing effects that art had upon people, this inspired her to consider how people may access deeper levels of peace.
Maria later worked for four years as a designer and art director at one of the UK’s largest lifestyle publishers, Ryland Peters and Small. Following four years of regular yoga practice, she attended a Vipassana meditation retreat in India. Maria went on to study as a Yoga Teacher, training at Yoga London. In 2017 Maria began teaching in Camden and this training and practise informed and inspired Maria to design, and produce a number of holistic publications including the Serenity & Solace Journal.
Packaging & Presentation
The Serenity & Solace Journal arrives beautifully presented in plastic-free cardboard packaging. The journal is neatly wrapped and sealed in silver tissue paper. Maria also offers the option to add a gift message to the recipient at checkout if you should consider purchasing this item as a gift.
Made from biodegradable and FSC™ certified paper, this lovely linen/ cotton-covered hardback journal features stunning silver page edging, a silk-style bookmark, and includes a sheet of stickers that may be used throughout the journal.

Target Tracking & Goal Setting
I’ve always enjoyed jotting down lists, making plans, and getting to grips with goals. I love the sense of order that a list provides and find that ‘ticking off targets’ offers me a sense of accomplishment and personal achievement. Writing lists enables me to gain a little control by putting life into a sense of order, this is especially useful at present when the World feels somewhat chaotic.
If I’ve written something down, I tend to be inclined to complete the task set thus I can’t wait to start putting the Serenity & Solace Journal to use in 2022. The idea of being able to track my moods, my thoughts, and my feelings whilst setting goals and intentions for the year ahead seems incredibly impelling.

Alongside the Serenity & Solace Journal for Wellbeing & Balance, Maria L’Warren has also produced the Serenity & Solace Affirmation Cards – the perfect addition to the journal as users can shuffle and select monthly or even daily affirmations to aid goal setting and holistic practices.
