Latest Planner Setup and an Update

I actually uploaded a YouTube video on my latest planner setup and that I’ve gone back to using ring planners, like the Filofax system. Over the last year, I’ve tried so many various planners, from the Midori Traveler’s Notebooks (both in regular and pocket size) to Hobonichi and even Moleskines. And each time I start using them, I would get frustrated after a while due to the lack of flexibility.

I know you can insert different notebooks into the Traveler’s Notebooks system but I kept getting confused where I wrote what and I had a hard time keeping track. With the Moleskine weekly planner, I was able to do some forward planning but the bound notebook format felt a bit constricted to me. I missed the flexibility of taking pages in and out and switching the order and adding sections as I require.

Going back to ring planners felt quite right. I have been switching between a Kate Spade planner and a simple leather planner from Labrador, which is a Thai brand that can be found locally in Malaysia. I have ordered an Ochre Malden because I sold off the Purple one last year. I have always liked the Malden but I’m not the biggest fan of purple so I couldn’t quite “connect” with it. I know that it sounds silly but that’s how I honestly feel.

I will probably do an update (again) after receiving the Malden because I have made slight changes to the planner since my last video.

I hope you enjoy the video and thank you so much for watching.

As always, please feel free to leave any comments, suggestions or questions on my blog or channel.

I hope you’re having a wonderful day.

Favorite Supplies to use in our Traveler’s Notebooks

Hello, everyone! I recently did a video with JanetheCrazy, who has really awesome traveler’s notebooks (yes, she has more than one) and we decided to showcase some of our favorite supplies. I had so much fun with Jane and we plan to do a few more collaborations in the future.

I will post where we got some of our supplies separately because I need to get Jane’s list. I think it would be a good reference if you’d like to use some of the stuff we did.

Hope you enjoy the video and thanks for watching!

Update and Flip Through of the Traveler’s Notebook

Hello, everyone! I thought of providing an update and a quick flip-through of my travel journal. I have been using the traveler’s notebook mainly as an art journal these days and have started to include more mixed media into my journaling.

Hope you enjoyed the video and thank you so much for watching.

Midori Traveler’s Notebook as a Travel Journal

I am back to using the regular sized Midori Traveler’s Notebook and it feels quite good to finally put it to good use. I fell in love with the MTN the first time I had one but I couldn’t make it work as a planner for me and found the format to be a little frustrating (as a planner).

But I recently watched a few more videos and was inspired to turn it into a travel / art journal, something I’ve been meaning to do for a while. And I am loving it so far!

Do let me know should you have any questions or comments.

Thanks so much for watching!
