    How To Use A Planner To Stay Organised

    If you’re anything like me there’s a good chance at some point in your life you’ve decided you need to get things in order and bought a planner to get yourself organised. If you’re anything like me you’ve probably also realised that just buying a planner doesn’t help you get organised.  Planners are a fantastic tool which can help you organise your life and get things done. But they need a little work. No matter if you use a paper planner or some other digital system, they need a little input to work at their best.  Today I’m going to share some tips on how to set up and organise…

    My Favourite Brush Pens For Bullet Journaling

    When I’m not writing about notebooks I spend my time working as a graphic designer. Over the last few years, I have specialised a little more and now most of the work I do is lettering and calligraphy. These are two skills that take a lot of practice, one of the ways I practice is by decorating my bullet journal with small pieces of lettering. Incidentally, if you want to see more of my lettering work you can head over to my design Instagram.  Choosing the right pen for brush lettering is a personal thing. It depends on the type of lettering you do. A pen like the Tombow Dual…

    What Is A Commonplace Book & How To Use It

    I want to talk about something a little different today. I know my blog mostly focuses on bullet journals. But there are also other forms of journaling out there.

I’ve come across people talking about commonplace books before, but I’ve always had the impression that a commonplace book was a notebook where you wrote things you wanted to remember. Though this is true, the commonplace book is a little more complicated than that.

    Can You Use Watercolour In The Leuchtturm1917?

    In the past, I’ve talked a lot about how to use a bullet journal. You don’t want to spend all your time decorating your bullet journal and forget to use it as a planning tool. I’m not saying you can’t decorate your bullet journal at all. I enjoy decorating my bullet journal pages, I don’t decorate to the same extent as some others who use bullet journals. But I do use a lot of art supplies in my bullet journal. And today I want to answer an interesting question, can you use watercolour in the Leuchtturm1917? I’ve used several different notebooks as bullet journals, but the one notebook I’ve used…
