Little Life Update – August 2017

Wait… It’s AUGUST? When did that happen?! Don’t feel like you’re losing your mind if you’re recognising that intro… it is the same as the one from last month because, in all seriousness, where did July go?! I had aspirations to do a lot of blogging during July but about halfway through the month, I realised that it basically wasn’t happening. I had always wanted my blog to succeed and I had always had ideas in my mind of it...

Bullet Journal: July 2017 Set-up

Wait… it’s JULY? When did that happen?! It seems as though it hasn’t even been a week since my June 2017 Bullet Journal Set-up! Now I know that is partly because I haven’t been publishing as many blog posts as I would have wanted to (shame on me!) But it is also crazy to think that we are already over half way through the year! Alas, that is the subject for another blog post, and the subject for this blog...

June 2017 Goals

Since before I started the blog, I decided that I wanted to create goal posts once per month to (hopefully) keep me on track with what I’m doing and propel me to achieving my goals, so although it has been a while since June started, here are my goals for the month!   Music delete duplicates mop-up I started sorting out the music on my laptop about three years ago, but lost steam half way through so ended up with...

Bullet Journal: June 2017 Set-up

Hi all! Since it is (kind of) the start of a new month – and I also only recently finished setting up my bullet journal for June (I need to get better at setting it up before the month starts!), I thought I’d share with you my set-up for this month.

Intro to BuJo: What is it?

I am a big lover and advocate of self-improvement, which means every year around the Christmas/New Year period, I always look for resolutions or goals to take on for the year. Whether you are someone who has umpteen resolutions each and every year, or you are someone who purposely avoids resolutions because you don’t believe in them, I think Bullet Journalling, something I stumbled upon last year, is something you should try. So… What is it? The best place to learn about...

My First Step

Every journey starts with a single step. Since you’re reading this, that means I have bravely taken that first stride in starting my blog, something I have been thinking about doing for a lot longer than I would actually feel comfortable to admit. For the longest of times, I knew I wanted to have my own blog, my own little corner on the internet, a sanctuary to call my home. However, due to – well, to be quite frank –...
