IMG_1468

Just as excited as I was visiting Traveler’s Factory @ Meguro, Tokyo. I couldn’t wait no more but rushed to the event on day 2. (4/16 Sat.) Pop-up shop is located at Eslite Xingyi third floor’s open space, they built a temporary front wall based on Meguro store and my soul screamed a little bit when I saw it! Making me desperately want to go back Meguro so much!

Let’s tour around the event:)

Week 15_2016 on Traveler’s Notebook

019 Free Diary <Weekly + Memo> / 週間フリー+メモ

I know I said in my last post about not posting my weekly layout (yet) blah blah blah and I’m slapping myself in the face right this week, weekend to be specific by sharing a glance with you guys, blame it on Traveler’s Company Caravan in Taiwan :P

Before we jump into to the highlight might as well see what this week has been like? If you have been following @palestblue on either Instagram or Youtube You might know that this talented, creative German journaling sweetheart has opened an Etsy shop @palestblueshop selling some cute cute cute clear stamps, I got a Flowers & Frames set which I’ve posted on Instagram and can’t wait to use them to decorate my TN and welcome SPRING!  I saved the memo card, notes and stamps from the package and decided to stick on my free page, first time buying clear stamps and I’m glad I get to own a piece of @palestblue’s design:)  That piece of paper with heart shape clip at the bottom is from Keep A Notebook, a relatively new, good quality paper stationary brand from Taiwan, designed by Thomas Huang, another very talented planner user. Sneaky review— The paper is in good quality, creamy and decorative, kind of like journaling card but in a lot thinner paper, single-sided print. KAN offers many refills that suit perfectly in your regular traveler’s notebook with a more friendly price tag, You can check out their stuff at their facebook page!

As for the rest of the weekdays, I go to work, eat my meal, write down what I put into my stomach and drink some coffee, nothing too thrilling, on Friday though, my colleague and I went to Hoto Cafe to buy this coveted Blue Berry Cheese Cake and had a quick bite of Lemon Tart, if you’re interested please go check out my Instagram:)

Now on to the reason why I spontaneously decided to write this blogpost, TRC Caravan in Taiwan. That green stamp is a Taiwan limited edition only provided on sight the event. I didn’t stamp it well but it’s this famous Taiwan Beer bottle celebrating 10 years of Traveler’s Notebook, and I wasn’t sure why but I also put an event sticker besides and wrote “Taiwan is my home”. Not gonna give it away too much because I’m determined to write a full report about this event, very soon, promised. Let’s just say the event was a blast and I want to find time and revisit the pop-up shop again!

Do you have any planner addict that you’re following? Are there any refills besides midori’s that you’re using and loving? Please share in the comment:) Thanks for reading and I hope you come back soon.  xxx

 

March 2016 Life on Traveler’s Notebook

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

2016 Monthly Daily Refill. 

Hello Traveler’s Notebook & stationary lovers on the cyberspace! This is my first blog post of monthly life roundup, I decided to only do a monthly layout becuase my weekly refill is kinda messy with basically just my everyday food journaling and random notes/plans all that jazz you know, the trivial stuff, nothing too fancy to show off. I’m more on the practical side and btw it just dosen’t work for me to decorate my planner artistically, but I never get tired of enjoying other poeple’s inspiring journals:)  Enough said, let’s take a peak inside mine!

+ Travelled to Japan (Osaka, Kyoto, Nara) for 6 days. You can see how I documented the trip  in Japan_Spring Travel 2016 on Traveler’s Notebook   &  My Traveler’s Notebook set-up for Japan Trip

+ A couple of trips to hopstibal for my lung check up:( The flu I got during CNY really wore me down! 

+ Little sis went to S. Korea for 5 days and I got to have the whole room to myself (That’s even worth mentioning?!) 

+ I shared my Japan Travel Journaling on PTT and my blog visit continues to surprise me, shameless self-promotion is REAL! 

Phew, so March was pretty ordinary, except my highlight- Japan Travel ( How many times do I talk about Japan/Travel in this post ?! Sorry guys but I really love it there and can’t wait to go back…… end of year)

Okay, I want to talk a little bit about setting up a system when you journal, like the pen (colors), marks, tools, the layout used, it can really help make your journal systemized and organized and easier to look back to, you want to have a quick and clear idea of how the month is outlined with just one glance and you want to be able to keep up the system along the way, easy breezy. Before I started this 2016 Monthly Diary Refill I gave it a thought and decided to use yellow crayon to draw a continuous line when it comes to holiday/travel plan, easily spotted! For any kinds of dates with boyf, friends or appointments in general I use black pen only.  I will use a second colour like here I use purple to write down anything more memorable or spontaneouss along the month. For reds I’m using to document my period and headache/pill-taking status. That’s about it, pretty simple! As you can see there’s nothing decorative at the moment, but I don’t rule out the possibility of so if I ever get inspired enough or tired  of my minimalist system right now.

What springy things have you guys done and what’s coming ahead? Have you ever been to Japan? Is there a journaling rule you go by to systemize your planner? Any thoughts on today’s blogpost, please feel free to let me know, I’d love to communicate with this nerdy stationary internet famaily:P  xxx
