    Leuchtturm1917 120gsm Notebook Review

    I’ve been a fan of the Leuchtturm1917 notebooks for a while now. I couldn’t even tell you how many I’ve used over the years. So when I found out Leuchtturm was releasing a new version of their notebook with thicker, 120gsm paper I knew I had to try it.  I love my Leuchtturm notebooks for bullet journaling, but I also like to use regular notebooks as a sketchbook. Where I can do drafts of my calligraphy and work out ideas. When I found out about this new Leuchtturm1917 notebook, with thicker paper, I thought I could maybe use it as a sketchbook. But, as much as I love it, it…

    Leuchtturm1917 Bullet Journal Notebook Review

    I am extremely late to the party with this review. Today I want to talk about the Leuchtturm bullet journal. This is the original “official” bullet journal notebook made from a collaboration between Ryder Caroll and Leuchtturm. Since writing this post Leuchtturm has released a new updated version of the Bullet Journal notebook.  I originally bought this notebook in the before-times (January 2020) for my dissertation module. A lot has happened since then and this notebook has been at my side for a good part of the last 2 years. So today I want to share some of my thoughts on the Leuchtturm bullet journal notebook and help you decide…

    How To Bullet Journal On A Budget

    I wouldn’t consider bullet journaling to be expensive, but I need to acknowledge that I already had most of the stationery supplies that I use and paying £15 every 6 to 12 months for a new notebook is not a huge expense to me. But I know that some people won’t feel the same way. So today I want to share some ways that you can bullet journal on a budget. I know that personal circumstances will change how much money you have to spend on bullet journaling. I also know that stationery supplies can vary in price depending on where you live. For this post, I’ve tried to give…

    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…

    My Daily Planning Routine In My Bullet Journal

    I think it would be safe to say that everyone’s daily routine was upended when lockdown began. Weirdly, lockdown helped me figure out a more balanced day to day routine. Of course, my bullet journal is an integral part of this day to day routine. So today I want to share my daily planning routine in my bullet journal and how this helps me throughout the day. I think to some it may seem slightly strange that I’m taking a positive view of lockdown. I know the last few months have been really hard for a lot of people. But realistically, my daily routine hasn’t changed all that much. Despite…
