I finally uploaded a video to YouTube again. It has been over to months since I shared a video which is definitely too long and I am really sorry to have kept you waiting. Over the last couple of months, I have been in a journaling rut where I had no inspiration and motivation to journal and when I finally sat down to create something I didn’t feel like sharing it. When I finally got out of my rut I was in the middle of exam preparations and my writing hand started to hurt.
One of my goals for 2020 is to read more books. I have always loved to read but forgot about it for the last couple of years. I never knew what to read and so I barely read anything at all. But every time I did pick a book I remembered how much I love to it. There is something about good books that lets you completely forget everything and dive into the story as if you were a part of it and I absolutely love that feeling. I started to follow a lot of bookstagramers on Instagram because I find pictures of colorful arranged books very pleasing to look at. It also makes me want to read more. For 2020 I want to at least read one book a month and to help reach my goal I set up a couple of spreads in my bullet journal, which I want to share with you today.
Books To Read
Of course, I needed a “Books To Read” spread in my bullet journal. I actually started this list almost a year ago and started off my year with two books from it. I already finished Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and right now I am reading The Circle by Dave Eggers. What are you currently reading?
New Years is one of my favorite times to journal because it the perfect opportunity to look back on the last twelve months and look forward to what is ahead of you. I love to plan ahead, set goals and reflect on where I am right now which new years is perfect for. Last year I made a video all about my journaling prompts for new years
This year I am starting rather late with my prompts because, to be honest, I have been having a hard time journaling for a while now. But since I am actually still doing my prompts I want to share an updated version with you.
Thank you for watching this week’s video. I am very excited to announce that as of today my own Etsy Shop is finally online. In this journal with me you can have a look at some of the designs you’ll find there. I have been working on my own shop for a while and hope you like what I came up with.
Lots of Love

Thank you for watching this week’s video. This week I want to show you my InkDori setup. I bought an InkDori this summer and I have been taking it with me wherever I go since.
A couple of months ago I started thinking about the way I consume products and became more attentive to how much I throw away every day. I started by trying to avoid plastic and re-using as much as I can. It can get pretty frustrating though especially when I go grocery shopping. Everything seems to be wrapped in plastic. I might not be able to cut out plastic out of my life at all but I am trying. Being more aware of all the things I throw away every das opened my eyes to a couple of ways to re-use different items in my journal and use them to document my life. Over time I found a couple of things I like to collect to use in my journals and today I want to share some of those ideas with you.
This week I am excited to share another journal flip through with you guys. I started this insert in June and just finished it in October. It turned out super chunky, which I love and I can’t wait to show you what’s inside.
Lots of Love

Thank you for watching yet another journal with me video. The other day I asked you guys to send me anything you would like to say on Instagram for me to put in my journal. I was surprised how many of you left something for me to put in my journal.
This week I want to share my October bullet journal set up with you. I am going back to university soon and I am already planning the coming semester. If you want to know how I set up my bujo for university please check out my blog as I posted about this along with a list of prompts for you last week.
Back to school season may be over but I still have four more weeks until I go back to university. I will start my third semester in Octobre which is insane because I still feel like I just started my first one. The good news is I still love university as much as I did on day one. Once a nerd, always a nerd. But that is not what I want to talk about this week. A couple days ago motivation hit me and I started planning the upcoming semester in my journals. I know I am late to the party but this week I want to show you how I prepare for back to school and besides I think you can still start planning when you are already back at school.
So here is what I do:
