My June 2017 Bullet Journal Layout.

So ideally this would've gone up earlier than the 10th of the next month but I just haven't got round to taking the photos so here we are. 

June saw the end of my first bullet journal of this year and I am slowly settling down into my second bujo for July onto December. I was so sure I'd actually fill this journal and I did, basically. I think I have 3 double page spreads left plain at the end of the journal and rather than rip them out (did you know the Leuchtturm has tear out pages at the end?) I think I'm going to scrapbook some memories from the first half of this year. 

But for now, on to my June set up;

My Bullet Journal: A Four Month On Update.

I wrote a bullet journal update a while back and said maybe, maybe not I'd do a monthly update on my bullet journal but then in July I went on holiday and didn't do one and that erm, answered my question really. 

So it's been a while, my bullet journal is 4 months and ninety-odd pages in and I have changed a lot so I thought it was long overdue a little catch up and a little peek inside what it looks like. 

5 Bullet Journal Hacks.

If you know of or have read my blog, you will know I am a massive bullet journal fan. I, like many others, have completely fallen in love with the organisational system and I’m always on the hunt for inspiration and layout ideas and general guides to getting the most out of it.

Since I’ve started using a bullet journal, I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks which help to make the system as efficient as possible and well, even more organised. I’ve tried and tested all of these and they really do work well. It’s so fab finding something that really works so I thought I’d share these little hacks so you can get the most out of your bullet journal!

How To Start A Bullet Journal.

Bullet Journals - the hottest thing happening in stationery right now. 

It is no secret that I am a massive fan, as are 213829847238764 bloggers and non bloggers alike and it's taken the world by storm. Bullet Journaling has really changed the way I take notes and track my goals and my habits in a way I probably wouldn't have paid attention to before and I can't see my love depleting any time soon. 

If you're considering starting a bullet journal but haven't taken the plunge or you have read about it but don't know where to start - here's a few recommendations from one addict on how to get the ball rolling. 

My Bullet Journal: One Month On.

It is no shock to the system to learn that I am a fan of the bullet journal trend that has taken the blogging world by storm. I have long professed my love for stationery and lists and organisation and I'm a cliche blogger too. I started my bullet journal (a TK Maxx bargain FYI) in May this year and I am IN LOVE. 

***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. 

Week 1 With My Bullet Journal.

When I first heard about bullet journalling I knew it was the one for me because I already use 179847391792 lists and notebooks and for a lover of stationery what better excuse to go on a haul?

I didn't want to fork out for the traditional notebook of bullet journallers (is that the technical term for us?) so I snapped this pink beauty up in TK Maxx in Bristol for fiver at the beginning of April. It's got a really thick matte finish on the cover which is really durable which I love and the pages inside are lined and reasonably thick so ghosting is kept to a minimum. 

Without further ado here's a cheeky run through of my bullet journal and how I'm using it so far!
