Hello there guys! I didn’t forget it – I just haven’t got enough time to post it, but here it is, my spread from last week’s journal. 🙂
We seem so ancient, lol – but it felt like just yesterday when we first met. Haha. We celebrated our 104th month on the 21st which happens to be his dad’s 62nd birthday too so we didn’t really spent the day on a “date”. We spent it with his family ❤
Me and my boyfriend, we love to eat. So when we stumbled upon a Facebook post that says “newly opened food park” we drove off real quick. HAHA. Of course the first thing we tried was Ramen. There are still a LOT of food stalls there though that we haven’t tried out so we’re definitely coming back 😀
I haven’t seen this two for like such a long time (they were both my high school close friends) so when they told me they wanted to meet me to talk about their broken hearts (lol) well, I agreed – uhm more like they FORCED me too. Hahaha. I had prior commitments that day but they were so good at bugging my conscience, and yeah I missed them lots too! We watched a movie called “I’m Drunk, I Love You” and then went to Starbucks to drown ourselves in coffee and heart to heart talks 😀 ❤
And that is it for a little glimpse of my life last week. Hope you had an amazing week!
I haven’t forgotten! I’m sorry I was just preoccupied with other things and I forgot to post this last LAST week’s spread but here it is! I may have to post last week’s spread too tomorrow to make it up with you. 😀
I may have ran out of tips to share so I will now just be sharing the highlight of this week. Some of them are:
So I sort of hosted a read-along on my Instagram of Sherlock novels and our first read is A Study in Scarlet (which I still haven’t reviewed – I will soon!)
My books from Book of the Month club for February arrived and I am sooooo excited to dive into all of them!
We spent our weekend south at Tagaytay and it was amazing! Missed fresh air! ❤
And that is it! Talk to you soon for my next journal spread ❤
Another one of my journal spreads! Enjoy! Blurred out a few parts though because I’m mysterious like that, lol no – I just got a little personal, that’s why haha.
In case you missed my first journal spread post, here’s the link to it.
Updates on your journaling? Have you been doing it too? Isn’t it fun going back through your posts and seeing everything that has happened – sometimes it feels like a lifetime ago, other times it feels like it was just yesterday. The magic of writing down memories – whether it’s a good or a bad one, it happened and you’ve learned from it either way ❤
I thought I’d share another tip for journaling:
Give TITLES to your day. It doesn’t have to be fancy, just something that highlights your day – and you don’t have to do this everyday either, just on dates that you feel doing so.
Write QUOTES. This has always been a journal saver for me. There are times that I’m in a journaling slump and nothing in the entire day eve mattered so I just write a quote or bible passage instead. I do write at least something that still made sense in relation to how my day went.. 🙂
So last night (or this morning), while I’m trying to sleep because I’m insomniac af and reading comments on my Instagram, I noticed that some of you really like my journal and some are even requesting to see them up close. Funny thing is there’s nothing interesting about the things I write there though, just a couple of random stuffs I feel like journaling. I don’t do fancy bullet journaling and stuffs like that – I’m too random and messy for the likes of those. I mean I want to try but I guess now isn’t the right time just yet, cause my life is a mess. Kidding.😜
So let’s get into it shall we?
My journal was sent to me by the good guys from Klevercase. Loving it so so sooooo much! It’s Harry Potter inspired so why not?! I like how the pages are thick and it won’t leave any trace for the back page no matter how hard I write. Just love it!
And of course you need pens! Contrary to my colorful Journaling in the past, I am now opting for cleaner pages so I’m only using black normal pens here – let’s see how long i’ll keep this going. LOL.
Pens: Pilot Fine ballpen and Uni Pin 02 Fine Line in Pigment Ink.
I know I should’ve started from the first week of the month but my Journal isn’t complete on those parts and I don’t want to be showing you incomplete spreads because DUH what’s the point?!😅
So here’s the spread from January 16th until the 22nd!
***BEWARE of GOT spoiler if you haven’t watched the show or read the book***
Try LETTERING! It will legit add character to an otherwise normal journal entries. It doesn’t have to be perfect, go to the internet and copy fonts that you like and start from there. 🙂
DRAW a little. I’m no draw-er (lol) but It try once every few entries just so that there is something a little more visual than my letters.
Use BORDERS! I looooove drawing borders, it does highlight parts of a certain day and is also really pretty to look at.
And that is it! Give this post some love and comments if you want me to keep posting these kind of stuffs!
