How to start a bullet journal is a very common blog post title idea but what a lot of people want to know is the why part of it all? So today’s post is going to be again on bullet journalling. As you may not know if you aren’t following me on twitter, I am obsessed with bullet journals and diaries and anything involving a cute, decorated notebook. I started it about two weeks ago now, or maybe three, I can’t remember, but I haven’t looked back since. I love every piece of it. Some of those pieces are down below, some aren’t. But I really wanted to share this with others because bullet journalling has really helped me out a lot. So let’s get in 5 reasons why you should start a bullet journal. 1 IT’S FUN TO BULLET JOURNAL This is the first and foremost thing you need…

Couple of weeks ago, I found a beautiful blog that belonged a girl named Megan Shaefer. When I came across it, it just so happened to be the perfect timing. I found it to be full of bullet-journal posts. At that time I had absolutely no clue to what bullet journals were but a few posts in, I decided I needed a bullet journal, not because my life was disorganised or anything, but because it seemed fun. And a little more planning can go a long way.  At the time I found this post I was about to have my exams, and I thought it would be a good way to organise not only my study plan but my weeks, days, months, years, thoughts, habits, moods and everything I wanted to keep track of. So went to the market, bought a notebook and a pen and started writing. I followed…

Hi guys! So today I’m going to be doing the writer tag. I’ve only seen this once before, and I thought this would be a good way to share my overall experience of writing. If you don’t know I already have two posts on writing, one of how I started writing and the second one of the struggles of writing. I saw VivaTramp do this over on her blog, which I highly recommend checking out. So anyway, the writer tag is basically a list of questions writers have to answer about writing. So without further ado, let’s get into it. WHAT DO YOU WRITE? WHAT GENRE? ANY REOCCURRING THEMES? I mostly write in fantasy. I’ve been obsessed with Harry Potter and Percy Jackson since I was eight, so I’ve definitely been most experienced with fantasy, but since grade eighth, I’ve started to shift my focus and reach out farther and…

Hey guys! So today I’m back with another book – related post. Today I want to talk about annotating your books. When I say this, I not only mean story books, but I am talking in general about books – text books, magazines, zines, newspapers, your old diaries or journals – anything you read a lot. I personally do this in storybooks and magazines.I also think this can be a great tip for organising a diary or journal. And it has changed my life. When I was a kid I used to be very paranoid about cracking my spines and turning corners of my books – I was so paranoid about it that I barely was able to make out the words on the pages – reading was literally difficult. However, recently I have had a complete shift of opinion. Because now, it’s not fun anymore. It’s not fun to read – to…

I’m not a very big fan of short stories. To be honest, I hate them, though I’ve hypocritically written a few, but I’ve always preferred long, ever-lasting series of novels. However, all my thoughts on short stories were completely shifted by this book, which you probably know what it is – Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling. Harry Potter is one of my`favourite series of all time, no doubt. It was what got me into reading, and into series. But Harry Potter doesn’t end at Deathly Hallows. Going into this collection, I was skeptical because I didn’t want to ruin my view of J. K. Rowling as a great author, since I actually hated short stories. But I went into it anyway. And I was greatly shocked at how amazing this book was. Everything from the aesthetically pleasing page layout to the cute stories and the olden writing style…
