Inside My Bullet Journal

Hello Everyone! As you are probably aware Bullet Journals have become MASSIVE in the blogging world at the moment. I am seeing pictures and posts on them everywhere. I absolutely loved the idea so I got my creative gene on one day and created my very own. I decided to write a post on it to give you guys some ideas and inspiration. The idea originated here on the official Bullet Journal website. 

Journalling is a great way to document your life and bullet journals in particularly are a quick and fun way to do it. I have written a post on tips for journalling and how it can help you in your day to day life here previously if you would like to take a nose at that too. 

First of all, I began by sticking in my name and make it personal (the stickers are from Tiger) - I haven't completed the front page yet - I might add some cute inspirational quotes in gold ink or something along those lines. Maybe even some photos of things that I enjoyed throughout the year for when I look back on it.

As I am not entirely sure where each month will end up in my journal (page number wise) I write my index as I go along. I don't want to restrict myself when it comes to not making enough space for pages to write/doodle on so I'm piecing it together month by month rather than the entire year in advance. This means that if I have a really amazing day I can write it at the end of 'May's Weekly Log'. 

A key is also really important. I searched the Bullet Journal Website for some ideas on this and made some up myself. I find the migrated > symbol really handy when I didn't manage to complete something that day so I move it to another day in the future. There's also a little room at the bottom just in case I need to add some more symbols in. 

**SEQUINS!** I adore bright and colourful decorations for my journals to make them look pretty. I have all sorts as you can see below. You can pick up one of these plastic boxes from Hobby Craft or The Works I'm sure and fill it with lots of different types of sequins, buttons, glitters, beads - the lot like I have. 

Stickers are also another important feature to my bullet journal. I bought the ones below from Tiger. They're super easy to to just peel and stick when you want to add a pop of colour to the page. You could also use magazine cut-outs similarly and stick them into your journal - maybe things that you want to buy?

I hope you all found this post helpful and are inspired to create your very own Bullet Journal. They're so much fun to create and it'll help you to organise your life so much better. Since I've started mine I've found that I forget things I need to do much less. 

Have you created a bullet journal? I'd love to hear your tips on creating one and what you include in yours? Leave me a comment below with a link to your bullet journal post if you've written one.

    1. Thank you! I didn't want lines or dots on my pages as I wanted to have full flexibility. Plus I'm used to using this style note book for scrap booking.

      I love peeping at other people's too for inspiration for my own.
