    November Bullet Journal Setup | Plan with Me

    New month, new start. Getting back to the bullet journal in November. October’s bullet journaling proved to be pretty non-existent after a stressful September and I never got around to setting up a new month and sharing it with you all. However, I’m determined to change this for November and the design for this month is already taking shape. So, grab your cup of tea, pencil case and notebook, and join me for the November bullet journal setup. Let’s get planning! November Bullet Journal Setup Theme As it’s November, the main source of inspiration is fireworks. They’re colourful, fun and easy to draw. Fireworks can also be very minimalist, which…

    September 2018 Bullet Journal Setup | Plan with Me

    It’s a new month, which means it’s time for a bullet journal progress report. I’ve switched things up for September after a great deal of YouTube tutorial watching and Pinterest inspiration. From July and August’s spreads, I realised that bold colours weren’t for me and I prefer a minimalist, subtle layout. Without further ado, here’s my September 2018 bullet journal setup. It’s never too late to start a journal, so get a notebook and pen at the ready and plan with me. September 2018 Bullet Journal Setup Theme September’s layout is influenced somewhat by my birthday at the end of August and just not being able to resist stationery generally.…

    Bullet Journal August 2018 Setup | Plan with Me

    It’s bullet journal time! Today is a continuation of my bullet journal adventure. If you don’t have a bullet journal, but want to start one, there’s plenty of inspiration out there. Never fear though, you don’t need to be a master of brush lettering or an artist to start one. I am proof of this. News The major blog news this week, I am now self-hosted! How exciting! I’m looking forward to improving my blog quality and having access to some much-needed plugins. My new site is pretty much there, but I need to make a few tweaks such as changing A LOT of feature images, so if you come…

    June 2018 Favourites

    Welcome to my attempt at keeping a regular monthly feature on the blog! After my May 2018 Favourites post, I am now having a look back at June, a month that has flown by. Despite the time disappearing before me, I still realised that I had a few favourites this month which I couldn’t ignore. Blogging Kind of an obvious one, but it’s true! After not blogging for months on end in 2017, then posting once in a blue moon in early 2018, I have really regained the blogging love! First and foremost, my reason for blogging is writing. I absolutely love writing, and whilst my freelance work is so…

    Starting a Bullet Journal

    It’s the start of a new week and a new month, so why not try something new? My poor Twitter and Instagram followers have been putting up with me spamming them with posts about my attempts at starting a bullet journal, so I thought it’s only fair I share my experience on the blog too. I’ve been tempted to start a bullet journal for quite some time, but was always put off under the belief you need to be an amazing artist, which I am most certainly not. However, after watching a fair few YouTube tutorials and reading many blogs, I decided to take the leap and have a go…

    May 2018 Favourites

    I’m not typically one for the whole monthly favourites posts, mainly because I see so many out there already, and so why not do something different? Nevertheless, this month I have noticed myself using a few things quite often and decided I wanted to share.  e.l.f Tea Rose Matte Lip Colour Whilst I love the longevity of matte liquid lipsticks, I always the colours are way too strong for my complexion. However, my first e.l.f purchase has proved to be a success. The Tea Rose Matte Lip Colour is more subtle, ideal for everyday wear, and is just as long lasting. The pen style applicator also makes the product really…
