Miss May's Midori Traveler's Notebook

Published by Darron Toy on



hi laughs it has been awhile and I deeply apologize but a lot has been going on this last month as you know parent-teacher conferences I won Teacher of the Year this school year and they had a huge phenomenal dinner for all of us and my parents came into town to help me celebrate and it was just amazing to have them here and when they're here it's all about them because that's what's important so I was not recording anything doing anything digital wise besides checking text messages and emails that sort of thing anywho they laughed then I got sick kind of getting over it but it's still a little bit of my throat in my nose so if I sound funny my apologies for you because I want you guys to know about this amazing travelers notebook I have the Midori um traveler's notebook I also have what they call a chic Sparrow traveler's notebook that I love too but my favorite my truly favorite is the Midori right now at this time so how it is when you're trying to find that planner piece whether it be workwise personal wise I found my planner piece through my work as a teacher I have finally found that teacher planner that fits for me I'll put a link in the description box below for you and then I have finally found my personal planner piece as well with the Midori travelers notebook so with that said enjoy the video I hope I can encourage you to try it out if you do you may not be disappointed at least I wasn't disappointed so with that said I'll be back this is the Midori travelers notebook that I absolutely absolutely love in a door just feels good when you finally find that planner piece and so I have the Midori travelers notebook both in camel this is camel avidin Brown and I also have it in black and by far I love them all black was my favorite but I will say that this camel is probably going to become my new favorite with the Midori travelers notebook it's just one piece of leather with elastic bands and then it also has this little tin clasp that holds I believe the strings on the ends the elastics on the insides together it goes flat but it also can come out like that um I have to do this y'all I have to freestyle with just one hand because my tripod broke and I'm waiting for a new one to come so just working it with one hand anyway um as you can see you can kind of see the camel inside what I love about the Midori is I'm going to do a close-up for you guys is that it has those scratches I just love the scratch marks and it leaves and that it has and I like the color I just like how it kind of looks more in a little bit it's just I just love that look but this is the camel again like I said I have it this and brown and black so I'm going to open it up and when you open it up it looks like this now I'm going to show you all of my inserts that I have in here I have one two I have three inserts booklet inserts and then I have my wallet piece and then I have my like card holder piece so anyway when you open it up it looks like this I have this cute little heart charm that holds the bookmark I got this off of Etsy I'll put a link in the description box but these little gold hearts are sold I believe they come in packages of two and then I just loop the string that comes with the Midori through it and it becomes my charm so the first insert that you're going to see is this leather insert now this leather insert it holds my credit cards it holds my driver's license so as you can see I've taken those out because that's personal information but I also keep inside of here a sweet note that I got two years ago from my parents that really means a lot to me so when I get a little Darrin or feel a little discouraged I like to read that um so in that insert it is wrapped around just mine this is that's this insert here again I apologize I'm just doing this with one hand so on this side you have your credit card slots and then you have a pocket here and then the other part of the same insert is a zipper pocket in the zipper pocket parks pircuit the zipper pocket has that's why I keep my cash and my change in that part but this is I'll put a link in the description box for this I absolutely love it as well this I can't think of the name right now but I will look it up and I will make sure I put a link in the description box so what hugs so this insert here this leather insert here my leather wallet part here it hugs my two inserts my planner insert and my weekly planner insert so the monthly is here this orange insert and then the weekly is the screen ish one now I'm going to show you what a so I'm going to take this clip off here and I'm just going to show you an old week so this here is a monthly view of what was happening in May and the boxes as you can see I'll put a close up the boxes here are they're fairly medium sized they're not huge but they're not tiny tiny but I write small anyway in the pen type of pens that I use help me write even smaller inside these boxes so this is a monthly view I'm not really big and heavy on too much decoration and all that because then I feel like it starts looking a little bit like throw up but anyway that's a monthly and then let's see if I can get us a blank okay this is December 2016 this is a blank and again this is from Japan as well so that's the monthly then next to that I have my weekly now I'm going to just show you the weekly for what I have for this week and this is what's happening this week for me so on this side I like to just kind of put down things that are that are happening that need to be done and then on this side I kind of just like to write and decorate little positive things and then I leave space for when I need to add things to it as week goes on but this is a weekly spread and I'm going to take this paper clip off so that you can see it in a blank so here's a blank of what that insert looks like and I absolutely love these you can use these any kind of way that you want you can use them where like you do your to-do list here and maybe each day write something that you're thankful for it's kind of like a gratitude journal which I'm thinking about doing but the possibilities are endless of what you want to do that's why I like that it's so blank and so clear and then you can put your creativity to it so those two inserts are hugged by my wallet piece now these are my cards that I have and I it's it's a card holder I took some of my cards out just for personal reasons but this could be for cards it could be for pictures it could be motivational quotes in size however you want to do it however creative you want to be you know that's what you can do this last insert that I have this is my this is like my Bible study note-taking journal and so like these inserts they first come out very plain and there and then what I do is I like to get some of the Illustrated faith stickers and paper you know different types of paper that they have and I just like to decorate the front covers so as you can see um I just decorate the insides and these are just basically my notes that I take you know in my journal I mean I'm not like the most fanciest drawer ever but I do like to take notes to just put my little creative touch in it and that stickers to it and just kind of talk to God and think for what I'm thankful for and things that really came to my heart and so I just put a bookmark on where I left off at so this is like my Bible study type insert that I like to keep in because I was one of those people like I wanted everything in the same place because sometimes you just need a moment where you need to read the positive word and the positive scripture you know because sometimes my life feels like this so you know slowly zooms release that's what we call chaos and you know we always find ourselves going back to God and he restores that order for us so this is my Midori travelers notebook you guys I hope you enjoyed it like I said I absolutely love love love this and the more you use it I mean you can bend it don't be afraid when you do get it don't be afraid to like bend it and you know it's just it's really a good piece of leather you know I'm not going to have a whole bunch of inserts so this right here is just good enough for me I know people have complained about the Midori not being big enough for all them inserts that they want to use it's kind of like what what you know you like so anyway with that said Oh lastly I just want to show you um this is what I was talking about when I said you can change the band so like this one is brown kind of a tan color and I believe I can change this one this one came with a green elastic so if I want to change it I can so there is my Midori travelers notebook as I promised and promised to do video on I hope you enjoyed it and I will talk to you guys a little later

I like how you show real use of the YOUR MIDORI. I have to wait before I actually get my leather Midori. But I have some hack inserts that I am journalling in right now.

Eva Savill · May 15, 2019 at 3:58 pm

Great video!! I love my Midori also, I however use a pocket size planner which I have gotten at Walmart called 'see it bigger " because the squares are bigger, but same size pocket planner. Fits great in my Midori great.
