Journal Haul

This weekend, I went to Daiso, which is a store that sells most things for a $1.50 and the items are from Japan. They have a lot of cute stuff including these journals. I really like them because they have cute covers, aren’t too thick and the lines inside don’t go all the way to the edge. 

I also went to Ross, a discount store that sells clothes and home things. I found these two gems which are dupes to the Moleskine, except that they were $3 each instead of the $20. 

I’m very excited to use these eventually when I finish my current personal Moleskine journal.

Thank you for visiting my blog,

New Notebook


I saw this decomposition book at Target and thought it was beautiful so, of course, I had to buy it. I was actually looking for a notebook to write my creative writing in. There is just something about the act of putting pen to paper that I love more than typing away on the computer. I just love the feel of it, I guess. I also love the feeling of finishing a notebook. I get a sense of accomplishment and that shows myself that I can be consistent and persistent. 

Simplify. Simplify. Simplify.

Recently, I decided that I needed to simplify my life. Of course, life is never simple but I thought, at least I can simplify my hobbies. I wanted to do so many things but, being the procrastination queen, I never got around to it. So I narrowed my hobbies down to three things: reading, writing and brush lettering.

I have always been reading, ever since I could. It is something I can never give up on. I can experience things I’ve never experienced with beautiful language in a book.

I’ve also always liked writing. Whenever I was annoyed by someone, I would write them a letter but not send it. I would instead throw it away or delete it and that would make me feel a lot better without having hurt anyone’s feelings.

I’ve recently started brush lettering. I like brush lettering because I like writing physically with a pen on paper and I like letters. You can see some posts of my brush lettering right here in my blog.

I plan to post about my reading, writing and brush lettering on my blog and maybe that will help with procrastination and my annoying perfectionist mentality.
