The ULTIMATE wedding spreadsheet for planning your big day.

Whether it’s a big day, a small day, an elopement or a really unconventional day - there’s no doubting that ALL weddings require some degree of planning. Ok maybe, maybe a drive thru ceremony conducted by Elvis on a drunken whim doesn’t have any planning involved but ya know, most others do.

We’re getting married in 7 months and by the time we viewed and booked our venue we had under a year to go so the planning has got real very quickly. We’re having a tiny wedding followed by a big party in February of next year and my spreadsheet has been a lifesaver when it comes to organising our weekend of festivities.

What To Include In Your University Bullet Journal.

I graduated two years ago now but I can see the benefits of a bujo for university as clear as if I was still there. For maybe the first time you're somewhere where you're 100% responsible for yourself and for your organisation and having a bullet journal would definitely have been beneficial for me. Ohhhh if only they'd been a massive trend back then. I'm sure they were a thing but maybe not as popular as they are now but lord I wish I'd had one. 

I'd definitely have run through several journals whilst I was there with everything I'd fill it with. Here's my suggestions for what to include in your bujo for uni;

Bullet Journals & Holidays - A Match Made In Heaven.

Bullet journals are for lists. Holidays are for lists. Do I need to give you anymore information? 

Holidays, mini breaks, months on end away - all are lovely when you get there and a bloody minefield of organisation before you go. I have always been a holiday list maker, or make that a holiday serial list maker. Sheets on end of lists, packing lists, to do lists, to remember lists, directions, booking confirmations and about a trillion and one post it notes. 

So when I first entered the world of bullet journaling I knew my holiday lists were done, the game had changed and bullet journals and holidays are a match made in heaven. 

***FREE*** Bullet Journal Printables.

Can I emphasise enough that they're free?

Last weekend I wrote about my first week using my bullet journal, a pink bargain from TK Maxx (read the original post here) and being the photo heavy post that is was, the one thing that commented on more than anything was how pretty it was. 

So FYI if you are new to the blog I am trained and qualified and practising as an illustrator so design and illustration and doodling and making things look pretty is literally my business - it is how I make my money. After having 217489237592375 people tweet me like "ugh I wish mine could look like this' or saying they were pinning images to copy later I soon realised that actually if you haven't naturally got an artistic flair but want your BuJo to look a certain way, drawing like this or handwriting nice fonts and banners is actually quite difficult. 

Thus the idea came into my head for this post and subsequently turned into me having a massive surge of inspiration and designing all kinds of new projects for my Etsy shop which are all at the printers.
