London Stationery and the creation of a Bullet Journal

I’ve always loved stationery. As a child my favourite part of the year was going to WHSmith to by my new stationery for the new school year. When I moved out of my parents house I found endless notebooks and pens, still unused and in pristine condition. I just loved having them for those “in case” moments. When I got my first job at 16, it allowed me to purchase new stationery all year round.

Discovering Paperchase turned my love of stationery into a full blown affair. They were obviously designing it purposely for me. Each range was beautiful and perfect and ended up in my collection of endless notebooks. Eventually I went on a slight detox. Moving house, getting married and having a child, all reduced my relationship with Paperchase.

Until last month. I was made aware of a Journalling/to do list craze, sweeping the blogging community. Nickie and Sian opened my eyes to the Bullet Journal and I was hooked. I just knew I had to do it, which involved the purchasing on new stationery and whilst I planning my to do lists better, I thought why not get a planner too.

I’m slightly obsessed with all things London and the Underground, so everything had to be London themed. The planner and stickers were selected in Paperchase and the notebook was found by C in a gorgeous little Hambledon Gallery in our town.

I’ve already been using my notebook as a Bullet Journal for the last month and can confirm it has changed my life. Well that may be a slight exaggeration, but it has certainly made me more motivated and ensured I completed well over due jobs on my to do list. I won’t go into great detail about Bullet Journalling, if you want some great Bullet Journal posts try Sian’s post with free printable weekly planners, Nickie’s look inside her Bullet Journal and Eliza Do Lots vlog about her simple Bullet Journal.

I hope to make a vlog about my Bullet Journal and the way I use it as I’ve slightly adapted it to meet my requirements. But I am really enjoying having a to do list I actually check off. If you use a Bullet Journal let me know in the comments, I’d love to know how successful you find it.

    I’ve seen a picture of Sian’s bullet journal and I’d not heard of it before that, I’m intrigued though….particularly if getting some lovely stationary is involved!!! Got a total flashback of new school year stationary shopping and I loved it haha, every year I would be certain my rubber would stay pristine (never did some one always wrote something silly on it), I’d have lovely pens and pencils that would definitely not get lost (always got lost)!! Ahhhh feeling a need to have so,e new stationary, surely as an adult I can at last keep a pristine rubber and not lose glittery pens!?
