Blast from the past

Blast from the past

Sometimes it is nice to look back instead of to the future. I have made lots of YouTube video’s that you might not know about because you haven’t always been a follower. So today I am sharing five video’s from the past that I think you might like from the past years.

Handbag organisation.

This video is not about organising your actual handbags but about organising the things you can put in your handbag in a separate drawer. Every time you grab a handbag you go to this drawer and put in whatever you need that day.

My walking pharmacy

This is a pouch I keep in my handbag with everything I might ever need, some people call it an emergency bag or just-in-case bag, I call it my walking pharmacy and I love this thing!

Filofax A5 Original Yellow

Back in the day I planned in an A5 Filofax, something I can’t imagine nowadays. The only A5 planner I have is used as a recipe book. But I used to love it and I like looking back at old setup videos.

Filofax Personal Ochre Malden

I recently sold this Ochre Malden, it was my favourite Filofax ever and I have loved this planner so much!

Filofax Personal Black Malden & Fluro Pink Original

When I first moved from an A5 to a Personal sized Filofax I used two planners alongside each other.

Some goals for the next couple of months

Some goals for the next couple of months

I am not one for big goals at the beginning of the year, but I do like looking back at the previous year and think of a few small things I would like to change. But I always keep it manageable, because I do not feel better when I am looking at goals that seem impossible.  And I do not make yearly goals as you never know what will happen in your life. I didn’t reach some of my 2017 goals simply because my life changed so much. So here are some list for the first 3 months of 2018 in which I will turn 30, which is a big deal if you ask me!

  • Read 5 books. I have started my first and I am loving reading for a bit before going to sleep. It helps quieten my brain before I go to sleep and I just love reading but never take enough time to do it.
  • Use my stuff. Buying new things is great, but using your things is so much better! I have a lot of paper, pens, washi, stickers, embossing powders, stamps, yarn etc. So my goal, for now, is to use my stuff. I am getting some crafty bits for my birthday next month but they are high-quality things that I can really use and love. But no Etsy or Aliexpress purchases for me anytime soon, which is hard for me. But I want to appreciate my things more and save money to purchase a Silhouette Cameo next year.
  • Crochet at least 5 days a week. I am finishing a blanket at the moment but have a lot of projects to work on next. It helps me relax and forces me to rest enough during the day.
  • Journal my heart out. I have been journaling for a long time but the last 4 months I have really discovered my love for daily journaling. I really like to take about 30 minutes a day to write about my life, thoughts and feelings.
  • Self-care is a priority! I am learning to take care of me and listen to my body. I never realised how hard that is when you’ve ignored that for most of your life. So I am slowly learning what it takes, I do not have a set plan for it but I will figure it out and try my best.
