    BluChickenNinja > The Paper Kind

    So I guess I should start with the obvious. I changed the name of my blog. If this has shown up in your WordPress Reader it means you were following my old blog and were transferred to the new one. For the last 7 years I have been blogging under the username BluChickenNinja and today […]

  • What Is A Commonplace Book & How To Use It

    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. One type of journal I’ve become fascinated with recently is the commonplace book. I’ve come across people talking about commonplace books before, but I’ve always had […]

  • How To Bullet Journal On A Budget

    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. […]

  • My Favourite Art Books For Beginners

    My Favourite Art Books For Beginners

    I own a lot of art books, like seriously too many. Just the other day I bought a job lot of calligraphy books on eBay. It was cheaper than buying them individually, don’t judge me. You might be surprised considering I’m at art school but I didn’t do art during high school. A lot of […]

    5 Ways To Increase Engagement On Instagram

    One of my modules at university last semester focused on communication, part of this module specifically focused on communicating via social networks. As part of this, I had to create and run a social media account. Something I’m already kinda familiar with. This account was specifically focused on finding ways to engage viewers of the […]

    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 […]

    Tombow Fudenosuke | Brush Pen Review

    I love using brush pens in my bullet journal. In the past, I’ve reviewed several different types of brush pen. Today I want to talk about the Tombow Fudenosuke brush pen. Out of everything I’ve mentioned on my blog so far, this is probably one of my favourite types of brush pen.  I know in […]

  • Bullet Journal or Planner: Which Is Best?

    Bullet Journal or Planner: Which Is Best?

    Today I want to talk about a topic I spend a lot of time thinking about. Which is best: bullet journal or planner? It’s a bit more complicated than you may think. It’s hard to say for definite which one is better, especially when every bullet journal or planner is different and the way they […]

  • My Daily Planning Routine In My Bullet Journal

    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 […]

  • How I Stay Organised At University

    How I Stay Organised At University

    Today I want to share how I stay organised at university. Higher education is different for many reasons. At school, you’re told what to do and to an extent forced to do it. University is very different, there is no one making sure you’re attending class or doing work. University forces you to take control […]
