Book review: The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll

This post contains affiliate links I started bullet journalling a little over two years ago. My first bujo was a lined notebook, which I used to play with what worked for me.

2019 goals toolkit [+ giveaway]

I loved Sophie Cliff's post on setting goals about feeling rather than doing, and so this year I'm not going to strive for more followers, write out a list of places to visit, or aim to finally lose the baby weight (is it still considered baby weight after three years?!). Instead I'm going to focus… Continue reading 2019 goals toolkit [+ giveaway]

12 Days of Christmas #12: My Book of the Year

One of the key things I've taken away from this year is a quote from Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist: “Books are often far more than just books”. That's certainly the case for a lot of the titles I've read this year, particularly those from Abrams + Chronicle. For my final 12 Days of Christmas giveaway,… Continue reading 12 Days of Christmas #12: My Book of the Year
