A short while ago I thought it was a good idea to go paperless when it came to reading and planning. It is to a certain degree.
Then I bought two magazines and a new planner. (I’m a bit impulsive these days!)
I fancied printing my photos and sticking them into a planner to create a visual record of my doings. My weeks can be boring sometimes but there is always something worth recording in our day to day lives. I ordered from personal-planner and was so excited to receive my really ‘personal’ planner. I chose my favourite recent dolly photo for my front cover and lots of blank pages to draw and record stuff in at the back. It came today and I LOVE it! My punky anarchist of a Sindy looks great on the front! I can’t wait to start using it and my childhood joy of new books and felt tip pens was reawakened. I tried Filofax and fell, I think the diary inserts were just so uninspiring and printing out my own too time consuming. This new planner is a great size (I went for the A5) and I love all the space in it.
Then comes the fashion magazine. I don’t usually bother with these as I don’t follow fashion much but I wanted to see some young inspiration instead of living in past ideas and images. I’m 49 and may be ageing outside but my brain is still about 17 and my 93 year old Grandmother Rose still looks at the latest fashions and beauty with great interest – need I say more?
Then comes ‘Flow’ magazine. Oh how beautiful it is! I am in love with PAPER and WORDS and PHOTOS and DRAWINGS.
Read, breathe in the images, dream, be lazy, be active, eat well, eat naughty, drink water, drink wine, laugh, cry, plan, don’t plan….go with the FLOW. Enjoy it ALL xxxxxxx
