When the internet makes you think…

Oh, internet; you are something, aren't you? Going from dial up to wifi; you've enabled me to create a blog, as well as other creative outlets, not to mention social media. There is a dark side to you, but I prefer your brighter side; when we can all come together, be it in times of … Continue reading When the internet makes you think…

15 Reasons You should Have A Planner.

Over the course of writing for this blog, you can probably see that I am an advocate for planners, as well as organisation and planning. But instead of posting a photo-centric post for today, I wanted to post a logical post about the benefits of a planner. They don't crash.  What bothered me most about … Continue reading 15 Reasons You should Have A Planner.

The problem with my Bullet Journal.

Good morning! I've been looking for a planner recently; not liking the Filofax personal or A5 size, I bought this notebook from Paperchase, promptly adding in a date a page. So far, so good. But I became very annoyed at how messy it became. Yes, this Journal is vaguely 'artsy'-if that is even a word-but … Continue reading The problem with my Bullet Journal.

Staying organised: a how-to guide of tips.

Although nearly always a semi-rhetorical question, a lot of people ask me "how are you so organised?"

So, for this post, I want to share a few tips … Continue reading Staying organised: a how-to guide of tips.

Washi tape

For today's post, I wanted to write an ode to something I love; washi tape. WASHI TAPE! (Yes, really. Please excuse how odd this post is.) Washi tape makes my planner pretty; I could sit for hours, just decorating it, cutting it up in bits, etc. And it makes me very happy to see a … Continue reading Washi tape

Why I’m Changing To A Paperchase Organiser From A Filofax.

Don't get me wrong; my Filofax has been my lifeline for a long time now, in organising every role I have to inhibit-the student, the columnist, the blogger, the wannabe journalist. And by the title of this post, I wish not to sound disparaging towards Filofax; it really has been a good brand to me … Continue reading Why I’m Changing To A Paperchase Organiser From A Filofax.

Goodbye Filofax! (A love letter of sorts….) 

My Filofax and I have been the best of friends for a long time now; ever since I moved in 2012, it was from the next year that it truly helped with my organisation. The student, the burgeoning writer, the blogger-it helped me inhabit all of these rules, and embrace them fully. In my final … Continue reading Goodbye Filofax! (A love letter of sorts….) 

What’s In My Blogging Bag?

  Bloggers, I have a general question for you: how much does your idealised bag for blogging differ from reality? Yeah, bit of an odd question that. But for this post I wanted to create what would be my 'dream' blogging bag-one that has virtually everything needed, and is small enough to be carted around … Continue reading What’s In My Blogging Bag?

My Filofax Deconstructed.

I finally made the choice to upgrade my Filofax-and after so much time! For today's post, I wanted to post one final set-up; after all, as I post daily, Imneed as much content as I can get! I've been using my personal size organiser-the breast cancer charity diary released a few years ago-with a single … Continue reading My Filofax Deconstructed.

A look inside my Filofax.

  As I've done previously, I've shared a few posts, relating to my Filofax, how I plan, and what is inside. As I write this, it's the last day of February, and my planner has already become well and truly stuffed. About a week ago, there was also a Twitter chat, which deviated towards Filofaxes, … Continue reading A look inside my Filofax.

Filofax love from around the web! 

Filofaxes are cool. I think that if you read this blog regularly, or are part of the planner world, you'll probably already know this. But enough about my planner! (Well, directly anyway...) I wanted to put together a post about 'Filofax love'-a collective from around the internet. And in doing that, I'll illustrate my post … Continue reading Filofax love from around the web! 

The benefits of a Filofax. (Planners are essential!) 

I haven't blogged about Filofaxes for a while now; instead of doing the average tour-through-your-planner, I wanted to devote a post as to what the benefits of a Filofax are, and just how useful they are for planning virtually everything. I've used the Filofax, size personal, for a few years now; simply put, it fits … Continue reading The benefits of a Filofax. (Planners are essential!) 

What’s in my bag? (The bag I wish I could use in reality..)

Surely every Blogger knows this?! From their actual bag in reality, what they dream that they carry around be quite different. So, for this post, I thought I'd indulge in some fantasy, and show you what my 'dream bag' has inside it. This is a canvas bag, which was a present from a relative just … Continue reading What’s in my bag? (The bag I wish I could use in reality..)
