Odd Giraffe 2020 Planner

Hi guys,

So, for my Daily appointments, schedules & notes this year, I decided to go for the Odd Giraffe Planner 2020.

I came across it on Instagram & really liked its color full vibePlus, It has sections for goals, a gratitude journal type section, water intake section, which I thought was really cool & something that I could use.

I also got a couple of free goodies with it because I was one of the early birds purchasing it.

The Planner comes at a price of Rs 1500/- & the free goodies itself were worth around 600/- so I did get myself a good deal!

I am really excited for the new year already!

Do you guys use a planner? Which ones do you use? I would love to know!

Leave me some comments about it!

Much love,

A xoxo 💋


Leonie Dawson Planner 2020 is here!

It was in 2014 that I-got my first ever Leonie Dawson Planner & I just got hooked instantly.

In some ways, I always feel this Planner has kind of a magical vibe.

Almost everything I write in it manifests in some way or the other.

Like, Honestly, I still find myself ticking off things off my old Workbooks, Even things that I completely forgot about, I ended up accomplishing or manifesting over the years.

From money goals, to life goals, to travel goals, almost every goal I have written down has manifested.

It’s usually around this time – October, Novemberish that the Planner comes out & I get super excited to get my hands on the new one!

This year I see that she has incorporated a lot of new sections in the 2020 Planner.

I usually wait till around December 25 to start with the review part of the previous year, because December 25th is my favourite day of the year.

In case you are interested in getting a first look 👀, here is a flip through of the Planner.

I guarantee you will fall in love with it! I might do more posts as I start working through the Planner.

À bientôt !

A xoxo 💋

Journaling II

Journal-developpement-personnelFilling the first blank page of a journal often takes most pondering. I always wondered how to give the Journal that amazing start which will set the tone for the rest of the year. Needless to say, it always made me anxious!

One day I was discussing Journals with my friend Melina & I mentioned to her, how I always struggle with the first blank page. It was then that she gave me the amazing idea of beginning with choosing a ‘Word for the Year’! It is setting the intention of what you want this year to be all about.

Since that conversation, I have always incorporated the ‘Word of the Year’ feature at the very start of my Journal.

Say for example, I decided last year that the Year 2015 for me would be ‘The Year of Travel’! And guess what?

It did turn out to be the year I visited 4 countries!

They say there is power in the written word and honestly I think it might be true!

So why not try using this feature in your Journal this year & see how it works out for you!

Lets us make our Journals amazing & creative!

I would love to hear about how you begin writing in your New Year Journal or any other Journaling ideas you might want to share. DO leave them in the comments section below!

Lets spread the Journal love!





I always get super excited about the arrival of December. There are two reasons for the excitement, the first reason is that December is the holiday season – Christmas & second is that it is usually around this time that I place an order for my Journals for the New Year.

I have always been into keeping Journals ever since my school days. It all began with writing the silliest of things like conversations I had with my friends, what happened at school, pasting pictures of my crush from the Boy Bands then, so on & so forth.

It then moved on to my hopes & dreams I had for my future life, what I wanted to be when I grew up ( I wanted to be a Journalist then), to shortlist of the Universities that I wished to attend, Graduation day, getting a Job, etc.

I don’t really maintain a daily journal but jot down things that I feel I really wish to have as a part of memories. Sometimes, I paste a picture taken from that day. I did consider having an online diary, but there is magic in writing I feel.

I have a ritual for every Christmas day ( There is just something magical about that day, isn’t it?)

I start writing in my Journal from Christmas day. I make a list of things I hope to achieve in the coming year. All my hopes, dreams, Aspirations.

I also make a note of all the good things that have happened to me during the year that passed & go through the list I had made the past Christmas & review the things I had jotted down to be achieved.

It is so interesting to see the change within yourself sometimes. Sometimes our dreams, hopes & aspirations change too. Not always, but sometimes.

I also have a Gratitude Journal. I write down five things everyday that I am grateful for. Helps me be mindful of my blessings everyday.

Journaling is really a fun activity, you can be as creative with it as you like. May be this year, I will post pictures of my Journal (I am not the most creative person I know, but I will try and be this time around)

Do you guys keep a Journal? What do you jot down? I would love to know, leave me links if you’ve done a post on your Journal down below, pictures too if you like in the Comments section!
