My Bullet Journal

Hey my loves,

in today’s entry I am going to talk about my bullet journal. I’ve been doing this for almost six months now and I decided to start a new one, because my old one got too messy and I wanted a different vibe for the inside. My bullet journal is from Cedon, I bought it on Amazon:Β Cedon Notebook ‘Wiedehopf’

I’ve decided to keep it somewhat minimalistic and give myself a little bit more space for my weekly spreads. I also decided to cut some pages like my Disney watch list and a couple of others and added some pages like a few pages dedicated to my blog statistics.

Now, normally a BuJo starts with an Index, but I’ve never used the one in my old one so I decided to skip it. Another change was that I decided to place the yearly overview only on one page and highlight dates that are important just to get a quick overview. Next to it I have my 2018 goals, which are quite private so I covered them up.

The next few pages are dedicated to movies that are coming out this year (or in some cases are already out) and a list of books I want to read. I barely get time to read the books that I want (student’s life – lol) so the list hasn’t been ticked off as much as I would like.

Following those pages are a list of places I want to visit and my bucket list, as you may noticed, there are two places on the bucket list that I covered up, again, they are more private so I kept them off. And this list is by far not done, I always add new things, same goes for the places I want to visit.

Alright, I always divided my year into categories of three. So I add a three-month overview and write down all the big events on that page, further more I have a page where I write down blog post ideas. The next few pages are a blog schedule, where I plan out each entry and tick them off and also an overview about my semester.

Then for each month I will have a cover page which just consist of a monthly overview and the month title. As for my weekly spreads, I decided to keep it minimalistic but with enough space. I kicked out my one-page to-do list and now am using the extra space on the page from my weeks for that. It just works better for me!

I got a lot of my inspiration from my Pinterest and I also created a board, you can check it out here if you like: Bullet Journal Inspiration!

I hope you enjoyed today’s entry! Do you have a bullet journal? Tell me in the comments.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

January 2018 Favorites

Hey my loves,

in today’s blog post I will share my January faves with you. January was a busy month for me, and February will be no different, but I do not know about you,Β  I love being busy! It helps me with staying motivated and I feel like my state of mind is better if I am.

Filming Videos for my channel

Creating content makes so much fun and I am planning a lot more videos, but obviously I need more time for it. But in March I will be able to film more and hopefully put out 2 videos a week, but I will keep you updated.

Blogging

Same with blogging, it’s been so enjoyable for me to write and think of new entries and I have been getting a lot more interactions on my blog, so I am assuming that you love my entries as well. So, thank you!

Meal Plan With Me

Hey my loves,

in today’s blog post I am going to share with you one of my meal plan session with you. I will tell you how I plan everything and will lead you step by step through my progress.

Scheduling of the Week

At first I will have a look at how my week will look like and maybe even plan it some more. If I’m pretty much certain how often I will be home for meals and how many meals I need I will set my weekly budget, which for the most part is around 25-30€, and on occasion sometimes a little more or less. It really depends if I need to stock up my pantry or not, but I usually have to stock it up every other month.

Looking Up Recipes

After that I will get out some of my recipe books and have a look trough them. I am doingΒ Weight Watchers and am on a low carb, low cholesterol diet, so I always have to make sure that my meals are in my points and also, that I have at least one meal a day that is nearly carb free. Would you like some recipes? I could write a post about my favorites.

I then will write down some of the recipes that sounds good to me for the upcoming week and then I will take a look if they have somewhat similar ingredients or not. If they don’t I usually opt for ones who do. When I have a solid base of recipes, which usually are for a full week (if I’m at home for my meals) 4-5 dinners.

I should also mention that I cook in the evening, since I am not a big fan on eating a warm meal for lunch, because I tend to feel tired after eating. I also am still figuring out the right portion size for me and my lifestyle, so I tend to have less dinners, than week days, because I always have leftovers.

I have a Pinterest board with some of my favorite recipes!

Writing my Shopping List

I don’t really write down the meals for an exact day, since I like to keep my options open, when I want to eat what recipe. I also don’t plan my lunches and breakfast, because in the morning I tend to eat some bread with cheese or if I got the time some oatmeal and for lunch I usually eat salads mixed with various vegetables and sometimes fruits.

When I’m done with researching recipes, I will have a look through my pantry and freezer to find out what I still have and need to buy. After finishing that I will write down everything that I have to buy for my dinners and add the groceries I need for my salads and breakfasts. I usually just snack on some veggies or fruits if I feel hungry in between my meals.

Also when I’m in Uni I swap out my lunch for a low carb sandwich or some fruit and veggies. Like I said, it’s easier for me to keep my breakfast and lunches open, since every day is not like the other.

This is pretty much all I do to meal plan, sometimes if I’m being super lazy I just choose recipes I know by heart, which aren’t many but are enough for a couple of meals. But i just like to try out all the different recipes.

I hope you enjoyed this entry! Let me know in the comments any tips you have or how you meal plan.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin
