twenty seventeen.

I’ve always been one for journaling. For trying to capture as many moments as possible in any effort to preserve the way that moments make you feel. Over the past 2 years I’ve kept journals. Messy journals. With no start and no end. No dates or times or any organisation. They represent me in a way nothing else could. I could not think of a more perfect representation of myself.

I love the inconsistency and freedom; yet part of me would also like to remember what day it was I fell in love with that story, how old I was and where I was. To be able to preserve parts of my life more vividly without the pressure of keeping a perfect and 100% consistently perfect and accurate account of all my days. That ‘dear diary’ stigma and it’s unattainable perfection of a journal we see in movies. Maybe some days but I feel too cliche doing this no matter how much I often love cliches?? This is why I love this idea; as alongside my messy journals filled with scribbles, quotes and random thoughts I can have a whole account of an entire year in my life. Even if all I had to write about that day was a quote from the book I’m currently reading or poem I saw on instagram. Years from now I can take this beautiful book and turn to whatever date to see what that day brought to my mind.

Here is a little snippet of January 1 2017:

‘This year I want myself to be more creative and less afraid of failing. Putting words out into the world and finishing those damn uni assignments no matter if it is the best or worst thing that I have ever done. Allow myself to put things into the world…’

A messy little flat lay with some of my favourite christmas presents to start the year with and I’m utterly obsessed with !! Two faced new powder IS AMAZING!!! It smells like chocolate and I’ve been using it everyday. Also who can go wrong with a Chanel scent?!

Finding ways to journal that suit you is so rewarding and for me it’s the best way to discover. Also a big thank you and big appreciation to the boy who knew me better than myself when he got this beautiful journal for me.

Love always,


PS Can we take a moment to appreciate that tomorrow is this King’s birthday

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    I am also a fan of this process, it helps me to let go of things as well as record trips and memories I don’t want to forget details about.

    I love the idea of writing something in a journal/diary every day. I have random thoughts, beautiful quotes, snippets of things that I want to remember – in fact I think I might just steal this idea! Thanks so much for the inspiration 🙂

    I love Chanel No 5! I completely relate to this – I’ve got Smashbooks that I’ve never started because I’m afraid they won’t be perfect. I just need to do it!

    I really love this post. The photos are dark and mysterious, so alluring! And I really related to your goal of not being afraid to fail. I am a perfectionist and at times, too hard on myself because I don’t want to fail at anything. It makes me unbelievably stressed out – I need to fix that.

    Can’t wait to read your next post!

    These photos are gorgeous!! I love that goal – being afraid of failure less. I need to do that. I often bail out of things because of that.
