    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…

    My Tips For Staying Organised When Blogging

    Today I want to share some advice on a topic which is important to me. How to stay organised when blogging. I’ve been blogging for nearly seven years now and over that time I’ve figured out some ways to help me manage that process and stay organised. I’ve seen people say that blogging is hard, which I wouldn’t agree with. Certainly at the start blogging can be hard. But what I’ve found is that blogging can become increasingly time-consuming. When I started blogging I could finish a post in a few hours. I’d write a few hundred words, add a photo and that was me done. Now a single blog…

    Palomino Blackwing Long Point Sharpener Review

    I mentioned in a blog post recently that I wasn’t a fan of using graphite pencils. As such, I had no real opinions when it comes to pencil sharpeners either. When I bought the Palomino Blackwing pencils I also bought a Blackwing long point sharpener. This is probably the fanciest pencil sharpener I’ve ever bought. I’m surprised I’m even writing this post. For a long time, I’ve just used a scalpel when I need to sharpen a pencil. But this is the first time I’ve ever used a pencil sharpener which is actually good. It is also the strangest pencil sharpener I’ve ever used.  I realise that considering the times…
