    How To Set Up A Minimal Bullet Journal & Spread Ideas

    I think it wouldn’t be too dramatic to say I’d be lost without my bullet journal. It’s the thing which keeps me on track and reminds me where and what I’m supposed to be doing on any given day. Over the years I’ve tried getting creative with my bullet journal, trying lots of ways to add colour and make it look visually interesting. But the way my bullet journal works best for me is when I prioritise function over creativity. I love my minimal bullet journal, and in a world of perfectly created bullet journal pages. I think it’s important to highlight that your bullet journal doesn’t have to look…

    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.

But, as much as I love it, it…

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…
