my new mood board & update

WALLIO1

 

hello again! long time no chit-chat aye!

I’m gonna start with a little update on the things I’ve been loving as of late! I have been so busy with school like everyone else in my age group so I can’t wait for them holidays!

R E A D I N G

The Tomorrow series by John Marsden. I’m on the sixth one which says that I am thoroughly enjoying this series. If you live in Ozzie or Kiwi land you will have a pretty good idea of the books I’m talking about!

L I S T E N I N G

I am loving the Rookie Podcast right now, it’s so good and so damn inspiring. Song wise I’m digging; the guardians of the galaxy soundtracks, Heard ‘Em say by Mr. Kanye West, Finesse (Hey Baby) by Flamingosis, Cool by Zac Villere, The Cool Kids by BVGER and Nana by Polo & pan. My Spotify is frankie..b so Y’all can see what I’m listening to!

 W A T C H I N G

Buzzfeed Unsolved… I’ve watched every single episode of all three series and of course the post-mortems.  I am very interested in crime and supernatural stories and if you are too give it a watch, it’s on YouTube!

 

WALLIO3

 

This monstrosity of an Inspiration wall was what I spent a good 75% of my weekend making. I went through about 20 BuzzFeed Unsolved episodes while cutting all these out. This is above my desk and is jammed packed with my favorite images from Tumblr and Pinterest.

I am really into plants, shadows, pinks, yellows, and organic looking things. I like to incorporate quotes, images, and illustrations. If I could insert Publisher files I totally would so you could pick the ones that you love and stick them all over your walls. I’ll work on it!

i always find that small pressie, stocking stuffers, and secret Santa pressies are the hardest to buy! I’m not quite sure why but i always feel that they still have to be special!

i thought i would help you lovely folk out and share some of my ideas with you!

hello, my gorgeous readers! thanks for all the love!

happy Saturday! yay, weekend! I started my day with a little bit of laptop club! members being me and my laptop! I decided to pop this together as I felt like getting a little creative! I think I might try and do one every Saturday morning!

I have changed my room around/ moved all my furniture so updated room tours will hopefully be up soon, once it’s all styled and tidy!

I have exams in a couple weeks so I am silently freaking out over those. it feels like the only thing I am doing at the moment is studying and being confused about things I learned at the start of the year but need to know this year! hopefully, this blog will not be neglected!

talk to you soon!

what you will need:

– printed paper for cover

– blank paper for inside pages

– needle & thread

– things to decorate the front

– scissors

 

what you need to do:

01. cut your printed paper to the size you want the notebook to be. remember you need to fold it in half!

02. now use the cover as a template for the inside pages. i just lay them on top of each other and cut around but you could measure them if you wish!

03. place all your blank pages inside the cover and fold them all in half together!

04. get your needle and thread and keeping your pages folded sew along the fold or what will become the spine!

05. now it’s time to personalise your notebook!stick stickers, glue pictures… go crazy!

06. and you done! enjoy your notebook!
