Hello, good evening from Japan!

I just realized that I haven’t posted anything about my life recently as I’ve been busy with building my youtube channel…. oops! Soooo to make it up, here’s a summary of what has been going on, haha! Of course, a photo spam is the most appropriate way to narrate! : )

Hi all!

Since I often get questions about my journaling style / habit, I thought that it might be the best to answer everything in one blog post. ♥

Here’s a preview of things that I use when I journal.

Stickers, pens, sticky notes.. and more. You don’t need an expensive notebook / planner / journal for journaling.

And remember, there are no rules! 😉 You just have to ENJOY!
