Hello, friends! Welcome back to my site! Today, I’m going to share some of the things I’ve learned while using my Bullet Journal this month. I’m going to share things I liked, things that I’m not too sure about, and things I don’t think I enjoyed too much. I hope you enjoy it!
Archives for February 2016
Hi everybody! I’m really excited for March to begin this week. 🙂
Why? Well, for starters, it means I get paid on the last working day of February (aka tomorrow) and start March with a full bank account. A new month means I get to start my new monthly page and habit tracker in my BuJo (which, BTW, I absolutely love). I get to set my goals for the month and reflect on how February went.

Hello again! Here we are with another book review! I’ve been reading a LOT this month! Today’s review is on Brené Brown’s Daring Greatly.*
In this book, Brown talks about being vulnerable and how vulnerability is the prerequisite to living a “wholehearted life”. A Wholehearted Life is one where you show a deep attachment to others, your environment, and even your workplace. You’re okay with failing and showing that you’re vulnerable because it’s unavoidable. If we work to avoid being vulnerable, we lose out on a lot of life.
Hi everybody! Today’s post is a super simple DIY project that you can get done in 15 minutes or less!
My garage door opener bulb recently went out, leaving us in darkness when we left for work in the mornings (yes, we leave that early) and in the dark when we come home in the evening. It was annoying to fumble around in the dark to find the right key for our laundry room door, so I decided to do something about it.

This book is worth reading.
Morissette starts off by introducing the reader to their emotional age, and this helps guide the reader through the rest of the advice in the book. The three emotional ages are Parent, Child, and Adult, with Adult being the balanced archetype to strive for in one’s life. If you’re not sure which one you identify with (I’m a Parent archetype), there is a quiz near the beginning to help you figure it out. Once armed with that information, the advice that comes later for each archetype will start to ring true for the reader and help the reader develop into an empowered Adult, which is a healthy balance between the impulsive Child and selfless Parent.

Hello! Today, I’m here with yet another super quick book review! Today’s review is on Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.*
I read this one a while ago, and it really did change how I look at clutter around my home. I tend to hoard things by nature, as does my husband. Our apartments were messes filled with things that we might need later–but never actually needed.
After just one weekend with my Bullet Journal (not even a full weekend), I have an update! I’m really excited to show off the spreads and pages I’ve added to my BuJo because I’ve never had a planner that could do all of these things before.
Here, let me take you on a tour: [Read more…] about One Weekend With My Bullet Journal
Hello! I’m so excited to start sharing my journey into the Bullet Journaling world with everybody! I just got my emerald Leuchtturm 1917 dotted notebook* and Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens*, and I’m ready to start planning!
I was inspired by Kara at Boho Berry to start my own Bullet Journal, and I think I finally found the planner system that will work for me! [Read more…] about Bonus Friday Post: My New Bullet Journal!
Hello! Today, I’m here with another super quick book review! Today’s review is on Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear*
I wasn’t too sure about this one when I first opened it (mostly because I thought it sounded a bit cheesy), but by the time I was done, I felt inspired to make some big changes in my life. Elizabeth’s writing style is warm and entertaining, and I loved her personal stories that were sprinkled throughout the book. She tells all creative types to embrace their craft and accept it as a gift from the universe. Just continue to do what you love to do and don’t worry about what other people think.
