After seeing so many bloggers starting up Bullet Journals and speaking so highly about them I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and give it a go!
I had a look through a lot of posts trying to decide what book and which pens to use. I have to admit, I’m a Sharpie lover and I will probably end up using my Sharpies at some point through the journal as well as some sparkly gel pens I already own. However, I did purchase some pens specifically for my bullet journal. I headed on over to Amazon and opted for the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner set of 20 as the colours are just beautiful and they seem to have very good reviews across the board of stationery and bullet journal bloggers that I have read.
I also purchased a notebook. I chose the Leuchtturm 1917 in Navy. I chose this because a) there weren’t many notebooks that did squared or dotted pages which was what I was ultimately after. And b) because, again, after reading reviews from other bloggers this very much seemed to be the right option. I went for Navy because for my first journal I wanted a classic colour. Although Leuchtturm do some really beautiful colours (I really liked Cornflower, Emerald and Berry) I though it would be nice to have something plain, simple and classic and navy fit the bill perfectly!
I haven’t started my journal yet but I’ll post updates as I go along and let you know how I get on! If you are thinking about starting a bullet journal or if you know nothing about bullet journals and are sat reading this like I’m a crazy person, then head on over to the Bullet Journal website for info on how the whole thing started and for tips on how to get started yourself! If you also go onto Pinterest and search for ‘Bullet Journal’, there are LOADS (and I mean LOADS) of ideas on there too. I’ve just started a board for all the interesting things I find about bullet journals – you can see my board here.
Have you started a bullet journal? How are you getting on?
