Yearly Planner

Take notes

Plan ahead

Call home from anywhere in the world

Don’t ever double book

Stay out all night

Live the high life

Oh how words can woo me.

While casually browsing the Typo website on Tuesday afternoon, I came across this gorgeous yearly planner. I loved it, and even posted a photo onto An Aesthetic Adventure’s Facebook page, enquiring if anyone was feeling particularly generous that day.

Low and behold, I ended up finding it lying on an out-of-sight, bottom shelf at Typo that evening, and subsequently bought it! Being A5 in size, it’s much smaller than I thought it would be, but that didn’t bother me too much. It’s easier to carry with me and simply irresistible!

So here it is, my oh-so-fabulous, international, chic yearly planner (that I have to wait until next year to use, because it’s already July!).

Traveling Transcripts

Did I mention that I’m off to Thailand in September with my parents?

Well I am, and I’m crazy-excited about it! When I travel, I’m an obsessive journaler (Is that even a word? Now it is). I write down everything and collect every ticket stub/brochure/pamphlet/flyer/postcard that falls into my line of sight and in it goes. I always travel with my stick of glue and pair of scissors, so I can journal on the go. It’s often a really great way to pass the time while you’re waiting in an airport or on a long journey.

In Typo on Tuesday night I found this beautiful little travel diary, with the words

Let’s find someplace beautiful and get lost.

What a dream! And for only R40, what a bargain too!

Taxation Frustration

I’m generally a rather chipper person, happy all year round. Until it’s time for tax returns.

Then I become a stressed out ball of anxiety. With not a general-ledger-like bone in my body I’m prone to leaving my shopping receipts and invoices everywhere. So when the time comes to hand things over to my delightful account-man, I become completely distressed. (Tax tension, that’s what I call it. We should have government endorsed massage parlours to relieve the stress of submitting a tax return, honestly.)

But on Tuesday I bought this gorgeous “Nifty little don’t screw yourself at tax time receipt book” from Typo. Ta-da, problem solved! Now I have an easy-peasy way of keeping everything in order. So, so simple and stylish.

Devoted to my Diaries

I’m an obsessive home work diary decorator. I glamorize each and every page with pictures, quotes and memorabilia from my life. They’re so much fun to look at, especially the ones from high school – all the things I spent my days laughing about are written down inside these diaries. I decided to share a few of my favourite pages from my high school diaries – complete with homework reminders, boys names and my favourite pictures from magazines…
