Have some journal pages from October and November! Still haven’t found a firm style to stick to - I guess my style will be whatever stuff I have to hand at the time whether it be paint, magazine clippings or other stuff. 

More of my journal pages: 1 | 2 | 3


As much as I love Instagram and blogging and social media in general, I still have great appreciation for more old school ways of documenting things. The process of writing something down on actual paper and taping photos into a journal is os satisfying, and when you actually fill up that book and finish it, the gratification you feel is even greater. That’s why I carry my black moleskin journal with me everywhere, along with a little pack of fine tip markers, tape and my polaroid. Whether I’m downtown Toronto at a cafe or on a beach in Cannes, I want to be able to snap a quick photo, save any receipts, flyers or other items and write about it right away. So far I have finished one book and am halfway through another, but someday I hope to have a library filled with black moleskins that document every moment of my life.

Since most of my journal pages are about my travels, I decided it be fitting to share some photos of them on here. I’ll shut up now and let the photos do the talking since, you know, they’re worth 1000 words and all.

I'm not sure if this is how I'm supposed to do this, but I've got a prompt! Imagine your otp growing up together as best friends. They have a photo book that they keep pictures of their "important event." As they grow up they end up getting together and they keep up with putting photos in, such as their first kiss, anniversary photos, marriage proposal, their wedding day kiss at the alter, and sooner or later pictures with their kids (if they have any).

(Thanks for the prompt!)

今日と明日も きっと違うだろう

それだけのことだから いけないのか

Edited photo sets like this were made for my instagram account @elaychi . Feel free to follow me if you like my edits 🦄

Also, I’m sorry for posting a lot of photo sets with shitty captions like this 😅 I’m not good with words but I swear I’m trying. I have a lot of pending photo sets, thrift haul, ootd’s and journal pages to post. What do you guys want to see next? 🐱 Feel free to drop something on my ask box 📦❤️


Let's Be Adventurers

Here’s a journal I made recently for my little adventures with Patrick. I compiled my favorite photos with him and design it with random stickers, notes, cut-outs, and calligraphies. Hoping for more travel adventures and lazy afternoons with this man! ♥

Oh darling, let’s be adventurers. Let’s live like kids and not grow old. Let’s love the little things. Let’s hold on tight and not let go. - Holley Maher
