New Size, New Mail! Thoughts On Filofax A5 Inserts

After a lot of thought, I decided to take the jump into an A5 sized planner. Since I've been home due to closures related to Covid-19, there's no reason for me to worry about the weight or portability of a planner anymore. And while I love my regular giramondo, I find that the pages are too narrow for me to include many details or events. And then, there's also the added issue of not being able rearrange pages unless I…

Unbridled Excitement

I've recently been looking into purchasing an A5 sized ring bound due to needing more space with changing needs, and the fact that portability is no longer a limiting factor while I'm stuck at home. I planned to buy a Gillio planner already, but I was stuck debating between a Compagna or Mia Cara. I wanted the Mia Cara for sure but color options were limited, and a lot of them were factory seconds. While the Compagnas had better color…

Animal Crossing Bell Bag Crochet Pattern

Hi everyone! I have a small update. Not in line with the typical writing stuff, but it's a fun update all the same. With the major release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, both my husband and I have been having a blast at home playing together. So, I figured now would be the perfect time to share this cute crochet pattern of a bell bag! I was motivated to make my own after missing out on a preorder bonus. Honestly,…

Tuesday Nights are for Coffee

My husband drove up from New Orleans last night to come and see me. We ended up having a lovely Tuesday night date, and we exchanged our Christmas gifts early. Our first stop was Rum House for some Taco Tuesday shenanigans. We got some queso blanco, assorted tacos, and I even treated myself to a berry mojito. It was a perfect meal, and we were both so full. Afterwards, we decided it would be good to stop by Lighthouse Coffee…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful turkey, ham and macaroni and cheese filled holiday. I'm not the biggest fan of turkey and ham, but I would eat my weight in macaroni and cheese if I could. I'm late by a few days, but I was visiting my in-laws. And, when you're seeing someone for the first time in a while, I think it's important to really just spend time with them. Not to mention, I was also…

Sunday Afternoon, A Journaling Mood

This Sunday was a nice one. Joonho came to visit me in Baton Rouge, and we spent the day doing more generic couple stuff. We ran by HomeGoods for a bit to try and find a 8x10 inch picture frame one of our wedding photos. And while we did find one, we ended up leaving without checking out because the line to check out was so bad. I didn't realize HomeGoods was so popular during the holiday season. Afterwards we…

A Week With My New Planner

So, I've had my Gillio Giramondo for [almost] a week now, and I figured it would be a great to go ahead and share how I've decided to set up my traveler's notebook style planner. It's only been 6 days, but I've already gone through quite a few stages of adding, removing, and rearranging the contents of my planner. Before we begin, a quick primer on my current planner. It's a Gillio Giramondo in the standard size, and it houses…

Gillio Giramondo First Impressions

You guys, it's finally here! Our long awaited Gillio giramondos arrived in the mail this week! For him, I chose the epoca green color and he chose an epoca rust for me. This is actually my early Christmas present to him, and a late birthday present to me because I couldn't decide what I wanted. So, I have to be honest. While I already own two other Gillio planners, they're actually the real ostrich ones. I've never owned an epoca…

October Traveler’s Notebook Accessories Haul

This actually arrived several days ago, and would be considered mail drop #3 and #4 for October. I didn't get to take photos of the unboxing since I was in a rush that day, and instead I just opted to post a photo of the haul itself. I mentioned that I have two giramondos coming in, one for myself and one for my husband. I only thought it was appropriate that I go ahead and get some accessories that would…
