Update : NaNoWriMo and January 2019

update nanowrimo november bullet journal

Welcome to this brief update post! Here it is: I haven’t been very productive in the last two weeks. Those who follow me on my Facebook page and on Instagram may have noticed that I haven’t posted much lately. I was in a bit of a productivity slump, maybe because the sun sets so early these days and we’ve been having record-breaking mid-winter temperatures in November. Anyway, I haven’t worked on this blog and on my Bullet Journal as much as I wanted to in the last weeks of November. As such, I had sadly no post planned for this …

Review: Leuchtturm1917 2019 Monthly Planner with Notebook

Plan With Me: My planners for 2019 | Petite Mélanie My planners for the year 2019. My Bullet Journal, my blog planner, my journal Some Lines a day. These are the planners I will be using to stay organized and keep on top of my game in 2019.

Those who read this blog know that my Bullet Journal notebook has always been a Leuchtturm1917, ever since I started Bullet Journaling. I love these notebooks, and while I’m not saying I will never try another brand of notebooks, for now I am content and have no plans to change in the near future. Earlier this summer, the Canadian branch of Leuchtturm1917 nicely sent over their 2019 Monthly planner with notebook. This post is my opinion of this monthly planner by Leuchtturm1917. Please note that although I received this product for free, I am not being paid for this post …

bullet journal students 3

Welcome to the third and final part of the series “Bullet Journaling for students”! In this third installment, I want to tackle the every-day student life organization. Though school, classes and exams are a big part of what occupies a student’s time, there are other elements to take into consideration. Many students work part-time jobs during their studies. As such, they have to juggle their classes, studying, homework, a budget, etc. Through all of this, they also have to do their grocery shopping and cook, in order to eat. In this post, I want to show the usefulness of the …

The 2-minute Bullet Journal for busy people

A few months ago, on my Facebook page, I created a survey where I asked questions about the Bullet Journal. As one of these questions, I asked those that had not yet started a Bullet Journal, what was stopping them? Why hadn’t they started a Bullet Journal yet? One of the most popular answer was: they didn’t have the time to. I paused to think about this answer for a moment. Is the Bullet Journal taking up a lot of my time? The answer: yes and no. Yes, because I like to come up with different styles for my pages, …

The ultimate beginner’s kit for starting a Bullet Journal – at a small price!

When I started using a Bullet Journal, I would have loved to have someone tell me what to buy. I’m joking, of course! (Kinda) But, still, at the beginning, I didn’t know what was what when it was time to buy supplies for Bullet Journaling. I wish there had been a guide on how to build your beginner’s kit! There are so many paper shops out there, and so many different styles and art forms, that it is difficult to buy everything needed for your new Bullet Journal in one visit to the store. It is also impossible to come …
