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,...

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...

Favourite Films & TV shows: August 2017

Hands up who else loves watching TV? I’m a bit of a peculiar person, who enjoys watching TV while doing something else. I enjoy crocheting, cross-stitching, lettering and bullet journalling. However, I don’t like doing this in silence so I tend to stick on a film/TV show for some background noise and here I am, sharing my recent favourite cinematic and television masterpieces for you all. Train to Busan I’d had my eyes on this South Korean zombie horror for...

Midweek Motivation

How is it only Wednesday?! I feel like I have been working hard all week, and I’m totally ready for it to be Friday tomorrow! Working the 1pm-9pm shift is always pretty tough, and this week is no exception, so I did a little hand lettering earlier today to help me try and get through the week! I found this quote on Pinterest yesterday and it really resonated in me.  I know quite a lot of people who have a...

The backstory Originally, we had been planning on getting married this coming September (2017) Since we went to Florida in 2015, we had dreamed of a...

Goals Update

If you have read the behemoth of a post that is my 2017 Resolutions, you will know that I have a lot of goals for this year! I had been planning on doing a goals update at the end of June, but then I blinked and July flew past me. So here is my goals update for 2017.   Format change As you can see from the above photo, I have changed the format from my original 2017 Resolutions. I am hoping...

How to Pick Yourself Up When You Feel Down

I have had self-esteem issues for as long as I can remember. For the longest time, I just accepted it. I had tried to change and be more confident (never really trying my hardest, however) but nothing seemed to work. But recently, I’ve got to the end of my tether with it and I’m determined to change how I feel. Acknowledge the little things So you got dressed today? Well done. So you got out of bed today? Well done....
