Bullet Journal: October 2017 Set-Up

Yay for Bullet Journal set-ups that don’t go up until over halfway through the month! In all seriousness, I had been planning on putting this post up last week – I had even done all of the hard work and taken, edited and uploaded the photos last week! But I always struggle with blogging when I’m working until 9pm so that’s definitely something for me to focus on going forward. My Bullet Journal set-up is very similar to how it...

This Man: Audible audiobook review by Sincerely Rebecca

This Man

Read from: 02nd March To: 14th March Format: Audible audiobook Length: 17 hours 15 minutes/448 pages When Fifty Shades of Grey erupted  way back in 2012, there was a massive rise in the popularity of erotic novels and slowly they started creeping into mainstream marketing. I had seen the This Man trilogy around for a while before I actually used one of my Audible credits to get the first audiobook, but I was quite intrigued by the book. On Goodreads, Fifty...

8 (More) Things I Learned During My Week Off

If you follow my blog you will have seen my post earlier this week about what I learned during my week off work in September. If you don’t follow my blog, or haven’t yet read the post, I’ll give you the low-down: I had my first period of annual leave in over six months in September. It was absolutely glorious and long overdue, and also quite eye-opening in terms of what I learned! This is the second and final post...

September 2017 in my Bullet Journal: pre-holiday list and daily spreads, by Sincerely Rebecca

8 Things I Learned During My Week Off

The last week of September was utterly blissful for me. I finally used some annual leave and spent the week at home. Before September, I had only taken 8 days of annual leave throughout the year (5 days when the other half and I went to Keswick in February and then 3 days when we moved house in March) There had been many times when I’d wanted to take the time, but for so many reasons I ploughed through and worked...

September 2017: bullet journal reading log by Sincerely Rebecca

September 2017 Review

I say every month how I cannot believe that we are at the end of the month, and here I am again, saying the same thing. To think that I have been blogging now for 4 months is absolutely crazy, and I have to admit I am disappointed in the direction my blog has taken. However, I am proud to say that I have several posts lined up over the next few days, one of which addresses my blogging habits,...

Bullet Journal: September 2017 Set-Up

Another month, another Bullet Journal set-up! I feel like I say this every month, but this month I am loving my theme! For the first time probably ever, I decided to give up the perfection this month. Paradoxically, I feel like this actually helped make this month’s set-up even more perfect than it had been last month! I ditched the ruler and started hand drawing my lines. I also used watercolour to make this month much more of an artistic one. Colour...

August 2017 Review

I should have known August wasn’t going to be a good month for me when I hadn’t started setting up my Bullet Journal until the 6th. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to leave my set-up until that late, it’s that August started and I was so busy with work and other priorities that by the time I blinked, the first week had gone by. It then took me another week to set up for August and transfer all of...

Loving Lately!

I have said many times before: I am a very reflective person. I have kept a diary since 2009 and a bullet journal for almost two years. One of my favourite things about these is the opportunity to look back at what I did/how I felt. As I have mentioned in my previous posts (especially my August Bullet Journal set-up and my Favourite Bullet Journal Spreads) I love my monthly ‘currentlies/favourites’ page as it provides a snapshot to how I...

Intro to BuJo: My Favourite Spreads (Part 1)

  The Bullet Journal came into my life almost two years ago now. For a while, I was hesitant to trial new ideas, and forced myself to use spreads that were accepted by the masses, even if they didn’t work for me. However recently, I have been reflecting on my BuJo journey. I have been through my previous journals and gathered my favourite Bullet Journal spreads.   Month in review I have always loved reviewing my months. In my Intro to...
