How I Journal | Tracking My Life

To start off with the pink journal is my old one, the one I started beginning or Junior year of High School, right before Nick and I started dating and it has lasted me almost over 4.5 years. The ice blue one is my NEW JOURNAL. The pictures you see above are examples from the old one.

So how I keep organized and track my life (goals, money, spending, fitness, acne, vitamins, water, and sleep) is at the start of every month. I give that month its own little page setup that I am constantly looking back on DAILY.

The first page (left) I write my goals and keep track of money made, as well as spending. This makes it easy for me to figure out how much money I’m actually SAVING. I also write out a tiny calendar that I highlight the days that I do yoga, workout, meditate, and even when Nick works out/ when he actually tells me he works out haha. I use Mildliner pens for all of this! They are a blessing and what I love about that is that they blend together so so beautifully especially the light orange and the light pink!

On the second page I track acne (orange), my period (light orange underneath the orange on the dates), Primrose intake (pink)(herbal supplement I take for hormones/acne), water (blue) , and sleep (purple). So this is pretty self explanatory just by looking at the picture haha. What I love about putting this all on one page is that I can start to see pattens between them. Like when I notice that I haven’t been getting enough sleep or water I might start to break out.

I also decided with my new journal that I would make a cute little vision board/inspo page to start each trip I go on. Seen in the first picture.

Its so crazy how I just finished my old journal in this very moment of my life! I talked in one of my last blog posts how Nick and I kinda feel this new chapter starting for both of us and an old one closing! I defiantly feel this shift of energy in my life whether it is physically or mentally idk, but it just feels so so sooo right starting a new journal. And I hope this inspired you to start journaling or just tracking your life! I love being able to look back on everything!

Happy Saturday everyone!

    Hi Willow,

    I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend! My name is Christine and I work in marketing for Skylar, a self-care lifestyle brand that offers hand-crafted, natural, hypoallergenic fragrances. I have included some more information about our brand down below.

    I’m reaching out because we have a HUGE launch coming up and we want to partner with you to help bring it to life!

    We are launching a membership program called the Scent Club, where all members get a limited edition scent each month + access to a bespoke Skylar community of real women and unique experiences + savings on all Skylar products. This membership came about as an idea after we heard from thousands of women about how they love to switch up their beauty routines but can never find new scents that are safe. At Skylar, going clean doesn’t mean limiting your options. The scent club offers a way to seamlessly mix up your scent routine each month. Plus each scent has a mantra and story that is paired with it, meant to give you inspiration for your month to come.

    We are inviting a very limited number of influencers to become founding members of the program. If interested, we would gift you a full year membership ($29 / month at retail price) and ask that you become a content partner with us for this program. We would ask for the below on a monthly basis.

    – a review of the scent club on Blog
    – one post (IG) tagging Skylar monthly
    – 1 Instagram story showcasing the newest month’s box and fragrance.

    We would also love to give you a custom discount code for your followers to join as well!

    Please let us know your thoughts. We would LOVE to work with you.



    We are proudly a woman-founded and women-run business. Our founder, Cat Chen, created Skylar when she discovered that her 4 month old baby was allergic to her traditional perfumes (her go-to beauty product). She quickly realized perfumes contained highly allergenic and toxic ingredients. She searched for a clean fragrance brand, but when she couldn’t find a solution, she created Skylar. Since April 2017, we have been offering clean, better-for-you fragrances on While we are a newer fragrance brand on the market, we have received tremendous support already. In fact, Byrdie coined Skylar with the phrase “This Natural Perfume Earned Me Endless Compliments From My Co-Workers” and Serena Williams recently named Skylar as her favorite fragrance in the NY Times. We also have received over 3,000 customer reviews and have stellar customer love for our products.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
