Doodle Diary, DDLJ & a Giveaway

Anyone who knows Hindi and has any idea of bollywood, would have definitely watched Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge or fondly called DDLJ. Who would forget Raj & Simran romancing on the mustard fields and the climax of Simran running in the railway station???!!!!! Very recently it celebrated its 20 years of release, and its still running in a theatre with completely packed shows, making it the longest running film in the history of Indian cinema!!!

Why am I talking about DDLJ here, all of a sudden. Well, Doodle Collection is a brand of notebooks and diaries and one of their collection is called the YRF collection and the best example of Yash Raj Films, ofcourse DDLJ.... Here's the diary inspired by DDLJ...

What better way to depict an OOTD with DDLJ than in the railway tracks and deserted railway stations??? And for the first ever time in this blog, I've tried done a 'different' photoshoot. Did it indoor and photoshopped myself into various landscapes!!! And that's exactly why you see a background photo credit below the pics!!! How's it???

So, the notebook is called 'The Bell'. It represents the Swiss Cow Bell that Simran leaves for Raj at his door as a symbol of love!!! The Bell on the cover actually has 3 textures - metallic, leather and glitter effects, to go with the actual bell feel.
The notebook has monthly planners at regular intervals. Each planner is themed of a different city - Paris, Athens, Amsterdam, Swiss etc, taking you through the various landscapes of Europe that Raj & Simran romanced in!!!!!
I'm in love with this diary!!! Guess what, Doodle Collection is giving away my precious readers a planner, diary or notebook of your choice!!! What are you waiting for? Get going!!!
