Current Thoughts At Half Past Ten

My wet hair is wrapped up in a blue towel, and I’m in the midst of my skincare routine – that’s how casual this post is going to be! Originally, I had planned for another bullet journal post, documenting my recent pages (by recent, I mean in the last month or so) but as it stands, British weather has kicked in – it was dark and raining quite heavily. The type where you want to be indoors all day but most of all – where there’s no decent amount of natural lighting for you to take pictures. So I’ve postponed it for now. It’ll likely be up later in the week though I’ve just checked that the weather just isn’t promising for the next few days. I’ll find a way! This post isn’t a filler by any means either. Just moved from Friday’s post to today instead, because I have in fact, been having a lot of thoughts lately and it’s nice to spill once in a while… 😛 On Sunday, I went to my …

Bullet Journal Staples – What I Use To Make Each Page My Own

My last post about starting my bullet journal got a lot of love and just overall, exceeded my expectations in its response, so thank you so much for all the love! ❤ As promised, I said that I’d write a follow-up post regarding what stationary I use to make each and every page my own. If you’re a student, just graduated or simply a stationary hoarder, then you might find that you don’t need to buy much else to start your bullet journal! Or at least, that’s what I found. Otherwise, here’s an idea of what I use and what you could add to your collection!

The Sunday Catch-Up #3 | Where Am I Going Next?

I realise that it has been three months since we last checked in with each other, so I figured it was time to do another update. It’s been a really rainy weekend which sucks if you had plans for going out, but great for the likes of me who likes staying in sometimes to write! (In fact, it’s the perfect weather to write in, ha.) I like writing these types of posts because it helps me juggle my mind a bit more and lets me know where I am with myself. So as much as it’s a post for you as a reader, it’s also a post for myself, therapeutically. It’s funny but sometimes I don’t even know what’s on my mind! Thinking About Future Plans For This Blog I have been thinking about getting self-hosted for a while (something that I’m still so confused about actually); but the one thing that has been stopping me is my blogging consistency. Although I don’t think I’m where I need to be yet,  I do feel positive …

Starting my Bullet Journal +some tips

I did it! For the month of May, I started a bullet journal after purchasing the LEUCHTTURM 1917 Notebook Medium (A5), Softcover, Dotted from Amazon. I have been inspired to start for a while now, after seeing so many pretty but productive examples on social media; that as an avid stationary collector, I knew I had sought out a way to use my tools. Having used an ordinary diary for a few years, I decided to trade up into something that was much more flexible…which really is the whole point of bullet journals. In short, a bullet journal is a chronological system in which you pen in events, appointments and dates like a diary but with the addition of inventing pages exactly the way you want them like a notebook. These pages can range from to-do lists, to-buy lists, notes, habit trackers, fitness planning and so forth. Basically, anything that helps make sense of your lifestyle, productively or casually. There are no specific rules as the system is designed to always be evolving which is the nice and motivating touch of bullet journals, …

May Monthly Favourites – Lifestyle EDIT

I like to keep it as real as possible on this blog. And as it turns out for the month of May, I don’t have many beauty or fashion favourites to offer you. I can only think of two products off the top of my head that could make the cut, but that’s not really a sufficient amount for a Favourites post. I’m currently in the process of trying out a lot of new products but most are still too new to form a full opinion, let alone be considered a Favourite. Instead, I’m offering you my most recent Lifestyle Favourites which I feel is most appropriate in summing up the month! So…let’s begin shall we?
