Planner turned to Art Journal

Hi dolls~ I'm not sure when was the last time I showed what's inside my planner/journal. Been posting a lot of craft related hauls lately. So I thought of writing one again cos I also enjoy sharing some of the things I write on daily basis.

This page was my very first weekly view that I made with a lined paper some washis. I'm using a 2013 Tomato Datebook (yes, I' reusing it cos I really like this planner).

I write down the dates and try to make it look as neat as possible.

At first I thought it looks nice but I was having a hard time looking back on certain things because it wasn't meant to organize but to express what's really running on my mind.

I was not into that kind of system so I decided to separate my weekly page and weekly "journal" page. So now I have the whole spread for the week.

I even tried to use this Starbucks planner again as an art journal but it was so hard to keep up with two planners everyday.

And this is how my empty spread looks like. The left side is for planning and organizing and the right side is for art journaling which I usually show in my instagram account.

I attached some of my KEENAPRINTS Hydrate stickers to be able to track my water intake everyday. I'm super excited to use my new released planner stickers on etsy. Most of them are my doodles~

Well you all know how I'm addicted with my planner and those cute planner stickies and stamps lately. To the point that I said I won't be buying any planner supplies anytime soon on my last post "Planner Supplies Haul" but sad to say, I did it again.  (・_・ヾ Not regretting it though. *evil laugh*

So yeah, here's another haul post for you guys. This time I bought the supplies from an Instagram store under @ddecoartph username last April and was really happy with my purchase. 

I got everything under Php1,000 approximately ($22). (*≧▽≦)

The first thing I got is this 10-pc set of thin color-washed washis. The colors are very light and neutral. I was expecting these tapes to be a bit wide than the actual but I think it's half the width of the regular washis.

I know the colors are really close to the first set of washis but I still got this 10-pc pastel set which could be perfect for those who have Kikki K planners!

I was browsing through the shop's photos and also saw this 10-pc bright color set of washis. Can't pass that up. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Ok seriously, I think I have a retail problem. If there's such a thing. XD

I think this set is perfect for Erin Condren planners imo. *wink* Oh, I tried using these tapes on my planner pages and the adhesive isn't that sticky but it's workable. :)

I was really excited about these regular sized washis! My favorite would be the arrow and bicycle design. ヾ(。◕ ∀ ◕)

But I use the pink and yellow one on the bottom the most cos I don't want to run out of my favorite washis. You know what I mean. (*≧▽≦)

Then I finally found these cute rolling stamps with wording on it like Remember this*, Good luck, Lovely day, #TOGETHER and many more.

I also got this rolling date stamp just to add some personality on my journal. This is a must for those who are into that travel inspired Midori notebooks. ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

I was soooooo happy when I got this stamp set! OMG. I caaaaaannnn't.. @-@ I know I sound crazy right now, but I'm really in love with these stamps! I use this all the time on my planner.

The last thing I got is this victorian style stamp set which is really lovely and very feminine. I really love the vanity and chandelier stamp. 

My planner was really plain and simple when I started journaling as you can see in this post "Things I want and things I write on my planner" so I think these stamps will really change it a lot in the following weeks. ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

That's all for today planner lovers~! Thank you so much for reading! How about you?

When was the last time your splurged on something? And what did you get?

Hi~! Does any of you went out just to stroll and go home with tons of shopping bags with you? *coughs* I'm very guilty of this actually.

Me and my boyfriend only planned to watch the new Avengers: Age of Ultron. But I can not resist going in a supplies store and scan all the shelves for goodies. So I guess this would be a planner addict confession post.

I bought so much things that I'm not even sure if I really "need" it. I think I have a problem. :x This is not even half of the things I recently bought online. :o I'll just edit the photos and share that on another post.

Ok so let us start with the most boring thing I bought that day. XD I got this cute little denim hair ties and a bunch of brown ones as these ties always tend to disappear whenever I'm done using them.

Then I got a black stamp pad which I will be using a lot with my new stamps that I also purchased recently~

Then decided to replace my little blue puncher with this white one hole punch which can punch up to 10 sheets.

And then saw this cute white stiletto phone stand which I got from SM Accessories. I was hoping I can use this for my tablet, but my tablet is too heavy for it.

I was a bit scared of using my X-acto knife for cutting so I purchased this handy cutter and another brown sharpie which I think is perfect for my 2015 Starbucks planner.

Finally got myself a Dymo label maker. It comes with a free black 9mm tape refill. I think this is over priced. The label maker + 1 refill costs around 500+php. Then if you want to purchase just the refill, it costs around 140+ php per roll. :<

Splurged and got this shoes from Pony. Which I will be using everyday because it is very comfy! :D

These things are not even included in my shopping list. XD It's not even practical. Sometimes, you need to splurge on things you want. It's called retail therapy. haha.

Ok so now on some of my wishlist and inspirations. I found this lovely site which offers formal style dresses from

I was always on the hunt for cheap formal dress shops online and always comparing designs and price ranges to share with my prom/fashion related post. And I think is a pretty good site for that. They offer high quality goods at a very reasonable price. Perfect for those who are budget conscious. You can even read reviews on a specific dress you are eyeing for.

That's all for today's post. Thank you so much for reading. Do you also love to splurge on craft supplies?

Hi~! How's your summer so far? Well, for me it was really good!

Me and my friends went to Bohol for 4 days and 3 nights. It was tiring but very exciting. I'll be posting the photos soon. I still need to compile everything. Uhg! I want to go back so bad. ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

I made this list on my planner after the trip because I realised I want to do a lot of things before the summer ends. Yes, living my life to the fullest. (´▽`ʃƪ)

Okay! So here's my Summer Bucket List:
  1. Go on a summer vacation. (Bohol, Philippines)
  2. Ride a cable car.
  3. Meet a new person.
  4. Eat at a popular restaurant.
  5. Visit a historical site.
  6. Start a journal.
  7. Catch fireflies.
  8. Family movie night.
  9. Go on a road trip.
  10. New haircut or hair color.
  11. Buy colorful set of clothes for summer.
  12. Workout every other day.
  13. Read a book.
  14. Treat mom to a spa.
  15. Random acts of kindness.
  16. Make homemade ice cream.
  17. Add new set of songs on Spotify.
  18. Have a cousin sleepover.
  19. Donate clothes.
  20. Organize my closet.
 I'm still at #7 though. Hoping to finish the list before June!

You should make your own list too! Comment down your blogpost link once you finish it so I can read as well. Would love to see what you plan to do this summer!

I've been browsing the internet again for inspirations and found this tbdress cheap party dresses online for sale. It is so pretty and I think it is perfect this summer. It's a bit formal but still has a hint of bright colors that makes it extra bright and cheerful. I've paired it with beaded sandals and a nude bag to balance the look. I have also seen a lot of long party dresses for women especially on Instagram. I noticed, fashion bloggers are very in to that. But I personally think this outfit looks fresh and elegant.

Alright, that's all for today's post! Enjoy~!
