I Got Some Amazing Stuff for My Bullet Journal!

As you guys all know, I’m obsessed with my bullet journal. If you guys didn’t read it already, I have a post showing you my 2018 layout (which you can read here). Since that post came out three weeks ago, there are a few things that I have bought that have really upped my bullet journal game.

My bullet journal is super personal and important to me, so I try to make it as productive as it is pretty. I bought a few new writing utensils, but Ashlynn from AC Studio Design* sent me a few of her products to try out, and I was beyond happy with how they look in my bullet journal. Keep reading to find out what’s new with my bullet journal!

Uni-Ball Brown Pen

I don’t know why I was so attracted by this Uni-Ball brown pen, but I absolutely love it. I always have this pen with my bullet journal. It writes so smoothly. It did take a little bit of breaking into for the ball in the pen to constantly run smoothly, but now that it’s broken into, I truly love it. I use this for my day to day planning.

Uni-Ball White Pen

I actually bought this pen because of the Youtuber Amy Tangerine. She’s one of my favorite bullet journal YouTubers. She uses the white pen to cover up any of her mistakes and also uses it artistically in order to create dimension! It’s taken a little bit of practice to figure out how to use this pen best, but I really like it! It’s kind of like White Out in a pen, which is pretty cool. I haven’t used it artistically yet, but I’ll get the hang of it eventually!

TomBow Brush Pens

These are the holy grail of brush pens. Almost every bullet journal YouTuber uses these pens. I’ve been wanting them for a while, but held off because they’re so pricey! I kept them in my Amazon Wish List, and finally they lowered the price of one of the sets enough, that I decided it was worth buying. I’ve only used them on practice pages so far, and I’m finally getting better with my calligraphy, but soon enough, you guys are going to see them on my spreads. I can’t wait for the day that I’m good enough to actually use these daily! For now, I’ll just keep practicing.

Stickers from the Philippines 

My friend spend Christmas break in the Philippines, and she brought back so many cute lil souvenirs back! One of the things she got me are these cute fruit stickers. She knows I’m a sucker for stationary stuff, and so I was super excited to receive these (Thanks Jill!) Whenever I feel like I have a super blank page, I insert a sticker or two on the page. I haven’t had much time on my hands to draw really intricate things, and so I’ve been using loads of stickers and stamps in my bullet journal.

The AC Studio Design Stickers*

I definitely saved the best for last. As I mentioned before, I’ve been on the lookout for things to make my bullet journaling easier. I’ve gotten a bit lazy in terms of drawing and designing things. I just don’t really have the time! I was so excited when my friend Ashlynn from The Crimson Cardigan told me she created an Etsy shop meant for bullet journals and planners! Sorry for all the exclamation points, yes I really am that excited. 

When she told me she wanted to work with some bloggers, I jumped at the chance to try out her products. I was beyond thrilled when she chose me out of the hundred and thousands of bloggers who have bullet journals/planners.

Her shop has loads of downloadable stickers at a super affordable price (trust me, I know how expensive stationary can get). You buy whatever you want, and you can print them immediately from your house. She gifted me these beautiful minimal floral wreaths in black and white* and also her minimalist arrow set in blue*. I was so grateful for what she sent me, they look so beautiful in my bullet journal. The wreaths were a little big for my bullet journal (remember, I have a smaller than average bullet journal), but I just trimmed a little of the design and it looks amazing!

I loved her designs so much, that I ended up purchasing the square designs from her! This was a perfect way to spice up my spreads. I used the same square for the entire month of February, but they have so many square designs in this set, that it’s going to last me all year without me having to repeat a design! I used one of the square a week in order to keep track of my weekly social media stats, and the other square for a weekly to-do list.

While these are the ones I decided to add to my bullet journal, she has so many different designs, which makes it super easy to create an organized bullet journal look without much effort from you! She even has some pretty stickers which you can add to any layout that’s lacking a lil color, which is similar to the stickers Jill got me from the Philippines. I can’t wait to see what else she comes up with in the future. I seriously recommend you check out her etsy* page here. Thanks Ashlynn!

I hope you liked seeing all the new things I got for my bullet journal! If you have any questions, leave me a comment down below. Where do you get your bullet journal supplies from? I hope you have a wonderful day/night! Sending you love, strength and positive vibes.

    This stuff looks so cool, I haven’t been able to get into bullet journalling as of yet but all the bullet journals I see looks so inspirational!

    1. They key to bullet journaling is creating one that is specific to you! You can’t create all these beautiful spreads if you don’t have the time and you’re not going to use them! You should seriously give it a try, I love mine , and spend years beforehand not feeling like I was creative enough to start one, but I’m so glad I finally did it! xxx

  3. Previously, I have tried bullet journalling, and I didn’t find it worked for me; I’m glad that it’s working for you! (Because what is time better spent then using stationery? I LOVE setting up my new planners.)

    1. Omg, it means a lot coming from someone who’s seen my bullet journal in the beginning!

I’m sure you’d love it! Thanks for reading and commenting xxx
