La de Dah Scrapbook Supplies! | Full Review Video

First of all, I'd like to apologise for the fact that this post, and my last one, are lacking in text; I've just been so exhausted lately and writing blog posts has been low on my priority list. Dissertation work, visiting with family and taking care of the animals has had to come first I'm afraid!

Anyway; around 6 weeks ago, Trimcraft generously sent me their new range of La de Dah journals and embellishments, and after a few months of using and enjoying them... it's time for a full video review! As you can see from the video, I absolutely love this brand and I happily would have purchased all of these items myself, (the same way I purchased their entire first collection!) had it not been sent to me first.

Here is the video!

Have a lovely day,

Croatia Travel Album | La de Dah Journal

Hey everyone, 

Today on my channel I'm sharing my Croatian travel album! Nearly everything I used was from the La de Dah journalling range* (kindly sent to me by Trimcraft to review, however I absolutely loved the range beforehand and had already bought their entire first line with my own money!) The colours and style of this journal, the Boho journal, were absolutely perfect for my holiday snaps and truly, these scrapbooks are a joy to work with. Every page is like a work of art! Where scrapbooking is concerned, it's much easier to see the pages rather than try and gage an idea from a description, so as usual I filmed a video! Here it is; 


I hope you're all well!

Project Life Share | Croatia 2014

Hello everyone!

Unfortunately I'm feeling pretty poorly today, and I'm in desperate need of a nap, so I'm not really up to writing the long detailed post that I had intended! I may come back and edit this tomorrow if I have time, but for now I just wanted to say that I've shared my Croatian holiday Project Life pages on my YouTube channel today. For all you mobile device users you can find the video here, (just for you Eb!) otherwise you can view the video below.

I hope you're having a wonderful day!

My Planner Set-Up, and How I Stay Organised!

My name is Chloé, and I'm addicted to planners. Yep, it's true. Planners are a new obsession of mine, and I absolutely love how organised and "put together" I feel since I've been using them properly. 

The blue/floral planner was £8 in the Paperchase sale, but unfortunately it's no longer available. It's in the Personal size, and conveniently I use this as my personal planner! Appointments, meetings, social gatherings, university and work schedule... it all goes into this planner. As a scrapbooker, I obviously decorate all my pages! My favourite supplies are washi tape, adorable post-it notes, and of course... stickers. You can never have too many stickers. I wanted to set it up "just-so", so I also used scrapbook paper to create personalised dividers and laminated them to keep them pristine. (Yes, I know I have a problem haha).

The neon pink planner is an A5 Filofax Clipbook, and this is the binder that helps me to organise everything blogging/YouTube related. It was £15 from WH Smith which yes, is extortionate, but it's also the PERFECT planner for organising your posting schedule thanks to the brilliant inserts; (if you'd like to see these, and an in-depth look at both planners, then watch the video below!). I plan every single blog and YouTube post on a monthly insert, and then write myself an in-depth to-do list. I also track my social media analytics in this planner.

As mentioned, here is the video;

Just as a little aside, I hope that displaying my videos within blogposts isn't annoying for any of you. I was really struggling to find the motivation and inspiration to work on my blog, but since linking my videos and posts together (I.E., creating a video about my planners and writing a post about them on the same day) I've been so much more excited about my blog and I feel much more organised. Like I said, I hope having my videos here doesn't bother anyone, as I'm really enjoying the set-up.

Have a lovely evening!
