5 Things To Re-Use In Your Journal

5 Things to re-use in your journal

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.

Preparing A New Semester At University (+ Back to School Prompts)

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:

1. Plan my weekly routine

Journal With Me + Printable

Today I want to share another journal with me video with you guys because I felt very inspired yesterday and just felt like filming it. I got the inspiration for this from @laia_journal who posts a free printable with pictures for you to use on her blog every Sunday. I love how aesthetic her collection looks every week and wanted to try to make an aesthetic collection myself. Since I was doing it digitally I figured I might as well turn it into a printable as well.

For the printable, I had to remove one of the pictures I was using because when I looked up the credits I found out that someone was actually selling it online and I didn’t want to get into any trouble but you can find that picture on Pinterest. I have a special board with all the pictures I used off there.

Thank you so much for watching today’s video. I hope you like the printable and would love to see what you create with it. If you share a picture you please tag me so I can see it.

Journal With Me – The End of Summer

Hello there and welcome to my first post on my very own self-hosted website. Today I want to share a journal with me video with you guys. Since it is the end of summer and we are heading right into fall I wanted to make a little summer 19 recap in my journal. I didn’t do anything special this summer because I have been working so the page turned out to be more about what has been happening lately.

Since I wanted the page to represent summer I went with bright colors and ended up making a rainbow background.

It took me almost five hours to get this video ready and I am glad I finally finished editing it. Will I ever learn how to edit videos properly? Probably not. Because I had no patience left to plan my voice over this video turned out to be quiet chatty but I like that. Maybe I should do that more often. What do you think?

I hope you enjoy

Traveler’s Notebook Set Up

This Blog post is from my old website before I switched to self-hosting. It was published on April 28, 2019

Traveler's Notebok Set Up

Almost everywhere I go my traveler’s notebook comes there with me. I have had it for about a year now and I am still head over toes in love with it. Over the last twelve months I have been trying out a couple of different set ups and I feel like I have finally found the right one for me.

Traveler's Notebook Set Up

If you open it up there are two pockets on the left side which come in very handy if want to take any ephemera with me. There is also one bigger pocket in the back which I use a lot more often. I put a pin from an Etsy Shop on the first pocket and recently added a picture of me that I really liked to the bottom pocket since I didn’t know where to put it in my journal insert.

On the right side you can see my current journal insert. I didn’t know how to decorate the cover so I used it as a regular journal page instead and I ended up loving it.

Traveler's Notebook Set Up

Inside my traveler’s notebook I keep three inserts in total. Besides my regular journal I have to smaller inserts in the back. Both of them are little booklets that came with a flow magazine. I use the smaller one to write down random thoughts or things I rather keep to myself. I also use this notebook if I want to write something down without creating a whole journal page.

The lager booklet contains ramdom things I wanted to remember. It is basically a physical pinterest board. Inside I keep magazine cutouts or lists with journal prompts…

And that is it for my traveler’s notebook set up. It really does work wonders for me. Do you have a traveler’s notebook and if you do how many inserts do you keep inside?

Bullet Journal Set Up for my 2nd Semester of University

This Blog post is from my old website before I switched to self-hosting. It was published on April 7, 2019

This week I finally started my 2nd Semester at university and that means it is time to pick up my bullet journal again. Over the last two months I barely picked it up and didn’t make any weekly spreads. I didn’t have much to do but now that I am back at Uni there is a lot of planning that needs to be done.

Planning my weekly Routine

Bullet Journal for Students

With the new semester comes a new schedule and I also decided to sign up for Yoga and a Spanish class which means my weekly routine is completely messed up. This is why I started with getting an overview of when I am supposed to be where.

Planning extra class dates and exams

Besides my weekly classes I also have three extra sittings that I need to be at. I included those and my exam dates on the right side of my schedule but also added all those dates to my future log. This way I will definietly remember those important dates.

Adjusting my weekly spreads

With classes back on I also have a lot of uni related to-dos I need to get done during the week like class related reading and reviewing my notes. This means in addition to my daily and weekly to-do lists I also include a uni to-do list in my weekls spreads again. For the first week it already turned out to be very long and I ran out of space on my spread.

Planning my blog posts

Bullet Journal

Since I have been working on my self hosted website, which I am hoping to get done before May, I decided it is time to plan my blog posts again. Last semester I didn’t really plan them and it ended up to be very stressfull. I want to keep up weekly posting so I set up a Blog tracker.

On the left I want to plan when I plan to post which blog post so I can plan ahead and include related to-dos in my weekly spreads. On the right side I am going to keep track of my ideas because I always forget them if I don’t write them down. Is there anything you would like me to include on that list?


Looking at those spreads I am actually very happy with how they look and hope they keep me motivated to stay on track with everything this semester. What does hel you with staying on track with your school work?

Lots of Love
