Loose Leaf Journaling

I love journaling! I honestly need to be able to vent in order to function. Keeping a journal is keeping a record of your life for future generations. Your child, their child, then their child, and hopefully your words continue to get passed on and you can inspire them to keep a record of their life as well.




After my last journal got stolen, I don't know why, but I wanted to be done with notebooks. No more notebooks for my books or my journals. I always wanted something nice and leather, something that would last a long time, and I could continue to add to. I chose Earth colors because being a Taurus I am an Earth sign, and that's the Element I feel grounded to. 💚🍃






I was bummed when I got the green journal. I thought it would have been bigger since I really thought I was ordering an A5 size journal. I even ordered the paper, which came from Amazon first. I was a little peeved to have A5 paper for an A6 journal. I didn't read the dimensions correctly, so I now have two journals! Squee! 😍

A6: 7inx5in

A5 : 9inx6in







I am currently decorating the loose leaf papers with images I printed from a royalty free website for vector images. I spent a day cutting out the images, but I need some tweezers in order to glue them properly. I need to find a good way to digitize the papers easily, because I have all this awesome cloud space in my Google One account. (I love Google!) I'm so happy with both journals, though I do love the PU leather feel of the brown journal a lot better.

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Surviving A Long Term Goal

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …
