2017 is coming to a close end. This year, I was able to try decorating my weekly planner spreads more. It was fun even though it took some time before I was able to actually jot down my activities and plans for the week.

I also made a post, "My 5 Planning Tools for Daily, Weekly and Monthly Planner Spreads" about the top planning tools or materials I often use whenever I decorate or plan my weekly planner spreads. You may read it for more details as I included in that post the majority of the things I used in the weekly planner spreads below. As far as I can accurately remember, I didn`t spend any money in designing my planner spreads since I`ve had so many leftover art and decorative materials since I was in elementary. I simply used available items I had at home.

The 2018 Belle De Jour Power Planner`s weekly spreads are very similar to the 2016 and 2017 versions which is why you can still get inspirations from the weekly planner spreads below:

Being a minimalist doesn`t necessarily mean to be bland and lifeless. Being minimalist may be different for every person. However, minimalism is often associated with having less, enough or what`s only necessary to better enjoy and get the most out of the things we have around us.

Minimalism can be applied in almost every aspect of our lives. We can apply it in our finances, material possessions, social lives, and even our home. Our home is where we should feel the most comfortable and relaxed. Having the appropriate arrangement, organization and design in the house is significant, which is why designing our home with only minimal accents and decorations can help minimize our stress and burdens in life.

I`ve already tried this shopping website and also made a blog post about the products I received. So far, I haven`t experienced anything negative worth mentioning from the products I received from the first and second sets of order.

What`s in My Bag?

Hello Graceful Girls!

"What`s in My Bag?" by @TheGracefulMist (www.TheGracefulMist.com) - Beauty, Books, Fashion, Health, Lifestyle, and Travel Blog/Website in Quezon City, Philippines - Blogpost Cover Photo - Kimbel International Backpack
"What`s in My Bag?" by @TheGracefulMist (www.TheGracefulMist.com)

Wherever I go outside the house, I often need to be carrying a bag. I always need to make sure that I have everything I could possibly need which helps me to go through my day with less chaos and stress.

[READ: Back-to-School: What`s in My School Bag?]

Back when I was younger, around 14-17 years old, I often carried big bags. I often thought I need to be as prepared as I could be to the point wherein I`m carrying unnecessary items because I was very exaggerated in my preparations. However, when I turned 18, I discovered the beauty and comfort of small purses. Hence, why I used my Zaful Cat Handbag so much.

Hue & Me | Art Appreciation Event

Hello Graceful Girls!


A few months ago, ArtisteSpace in cooperation with SMX Convention at SM Aura held an art appreciation event open for all. Hue and Me had different types of art displayed by different artists.

Hue & Me | Art Appreciation Event |  Art by Mr. Ronald Castrillo | Blog Post by @TheGracefulMist (www.TheGracefulMist.com)

This is one of the first few art pieces I saw and it became one of my favorites. The sculpture looks like a couple dancing on top of a rock. I liked the minimalist look with the simple silver body and transparent heads.  The beautiful art piece beside it is also one of my most admired sculptures in the event.

"Every Beginning"


Five days have passed since that symbolic date,
Yet all that I`ve begun is wander about my fate.
View of unresolved uncertainty
Still creeps my eternity

Papemelroti | Recycled and Handmade Items (Haul)

Papemelroti
 
is a Filipino art, craft, and gift store which sells a variety of artsy, crafty, eco-friendly, handmade, Filipiniana inspired and recycled items. They sell bags, boxes, crafts, jewelry, picture frames, scrapbook kits and accessories, wall displays, wallpapers, woodcarvings and many other products. They also sell handmade furniture, hold workshops, give free downloadables and offer to customize items. It`s a really cute store with great items especially if I`m looking for gift inspirations. It`s a nice shop I`ve always liked visiting since high school.

I still remember visiting their main branch, exploring the variety of items that they sell, and buying cute and vintage stickers, and notepads.

Recently, I tried to organize my notes, journals, and planners. I dropped by at one of Papemelroti`s branches to get small notebooks so that all my notes, plans and other things are segregated according to purpose. I also bought other cute things that I can hopefully use a lot.

Planning 
is a very helpful way to organize life`s activities and happenings. It allows for better mental and physical preparation. Planning, organizing and preparing with a planner has been commonly known to make events easier to manage and track. Along with that are several tools that keep the written and journaled life happenings more convenient, fun and motivating to read, understand and act upon. Such tools aren`t exactly necessary but rather add-ons to keep one`s planner visually pleasing, interesting, enjoyable and easy to follow. Decorative accessories and items for the planner tend to seem an unnecessary extra expense. However, there are other ways to keep daily, weekly and monthly plans organized, easy-to-read and visually pleasing without spending much money.
