my 2019 journal setup | chainyan.co
Over the past year, journaling has become something that I really love and enjoy doing. I used to think that I wouldn't love any activity other than photography, but then I got into journaling. (It's now a very close second!) Since getting into it I've come across a lot of inspiring people, on Instagram mostly, who do stuff like flip-throughs of their journal or "journal with me" videos. As I watched more and more of them, I also felt that I wanted to do something similar, but I wasn't sure how to start. I'll try to figure it out somehow, but for now, I'll just talk about my journal for 2019 and my current journaling setup 🌿

Malaysia 2018 haul | chainyan.co
My haul from our Malaysia trip last December. (In which everything I bought sparks joy, ha!) I posted photos of my haul on my Instagram and Twitter, but I thought I'd talk about it a bit more here! Aian and I have been going to KL every December for five years now, so I'm more or less familiar with the malls and what shops/brands are there. So with this trip I tried to limit myself to things that weren't available in Manila. In order of priority, the things I wanted to get were JLPT textbooks > skincare > journaling supplies > makeup. But also, I had to budget my spending so I had some money left for Comic Fiesta PLUS for souvenirs for my family. And my pocket money for this trip was...not a lot to begin with _(:3」∠)_

Wow, long time no empties post! I keep all my empties in one big zip-lock bag, and when it's full then I know it's time for an empties post. It just took a bit longer to fill the bag this time, haha. Last year I became SUPER LAZY with skincare, so I didn't really use up a lot of products. I started getting back into multi-step skincare in June, and from there I was able to finally use stuff up! Here are all the products that I finished in 2018:

2019 theme & goals | chainyan.co
Hey there, friends! I feel like I left everyone hanging in my previous post, huh ;; The truth is, because there was so much that I wanted to do, it took me a couple of days to decide on what things I really wanted to focus on this year, and so writing this post took longer than expected. But here it is—my theme and my goals for 2019! (It's a looong post this time too, but I'll be happy if you read til the end 💕)
