Hello beautiful people!
A number of you have been curious about the items I use for my bullet journals and where I find inspiration from. A post highlighting my favourite supplies will happen eventually, but I want to gather more research and perform some tests of my own before writing that post.
HOWEVER … there are an INSANE number of bloggers, YouTube Channels, and Instagram accounts for you to follow that will help you get started with your own Bullet Journal creation. From some minimalist day-to-day journals to budget tracking and blogging statistics overviews, the ideas are limitless!
Below you will find My Top 5 Bullet Journal Sources when it comes to inspiration and bullet journal goals. There are SO MANY more resources to choose from, but I chose these specifically since I find they cater to my tastes and I’m constantly going back to them.
The Ultimate Must Follow
Before you begin your bullet journal, I highly recommend you put some time viewing Ryder Carroll’s blog … he IS the creator of Bullet Journals, after all.
“Bullet Journal® (or BuJo® for short) was created by Ryder Carroll, an digital product designer and author living in Brooklyn, NY. Diagnosed with learning disabilities early in life, he was forced to figure out alternate ways to be focused and productive. Through years of trial and error, he developed a methodology that went far beyond simple organization. Now he focuses on helping others learn what the Bullet Journal method is truly about: the art of intentional living.” [Source]

One. Boho Berry
“The Boho Berry Blog started off as a way for me to showcase my Bohemian-style jewelry back in April of 2015. I soon began writing about the topics near and dear to my heart: mindfulness, organization, goal-setting, and personal development … Boho Berry soon took on a life of its own and has quickly become a hub for creatives seeking to improve their lives through planning, goal-setting, and motivation.” [Source]
“I started bullet journaling in June of 2016, and it was love at first sight (or spread, I guess), but I’ve been drawing and making things for as long as I can remember. In my spare time (so when I’m not doing homework…ugh!), you’ll probably find me journaling, sketching, reading, sewing, organizing, or doing some sort of paper craft. Or, if it’s nice outside, I could be outdoors playing soccer or having a catch with one of my three siblings … I started this blog because I want to share my love of bullet journaling, reading, and being creative with others. Thanks for stopping by!” [Source]
Three. Little Coffee Fox
“I started Little Coffee Fox as a means to document my growth, experiment with new techniques, and meet new amazing people with similar goals … Now, I’m a small business owner, which is completely bonkers. I never thought I would be here, doing this incredible dream job, but here I am! I got my Bachelor’s in psychology a few years ago and fully expected to go on to get my PhD, but Little Coffee Fox has swept me away down a completely different career path – and I wouldn’t have it any other way … My big goal with Little Coffee Fox is to live each day of my life with purpose and inspiration. With planning, I’ve found that I can live a life that is honest, meaningful, and fun. And I want others to experience it, too! If I can get this far, then by golly, so can you!” [Source]
Four. My Life in a Bullet
“My name’s Cristina and I’m the stationery addict behind everything ‘My Life in a Bullet’. I created this blog inspired by the amazing support and requests from my Instagram, for which I am SO grateful! … I’m an architect by day, currently doing my Master’s Degree … I really hope my posts inspire you. And if they do, I will gladly take the blame for enabling your stationery addictions. 😉 ” [Source]

Einfach auf das Bild klicken und dann kommt auch schon der Link. )Aber seid schnell, es gibt nicht so viele. 🙊 Hier war es die letzten Tage etwas stiller, da diese Woche ordentlich was los war. Die Buchabgabe ist im vollen Gange und dementsprechend hätte ich nicht all zu viel Freizeit, was man an meinem wöchentlichen Layout erkennen kann. 😊 Falls ihr mehr über das bullet journal Buch wissen wollt, könnt ihr gerne auf den Link in meinem Profil klicken. 🤗 Ich habe mich gegen ein dutch door layout und für eine deutlich schnellere Variante entschieden. Trotzdem hat sie alles was ich brauche, da ich diese Woche grundsätzlich nur eine große Aufgabe hatte: schreiben, schreiben, schreiben. Auf der linken Seite habe ich weiterhin meinen habit tracker und die to dos für nächste Woche. Das Thema hat es mir nach wie vor angetan. Ich liebe es! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🇺🇸 Hey Guys, first things first: the stencil ist finally listed in my Etsy shop! Just click on the picture to get the link. But be quick, there aren’t too many 🙊 it has been a bit quiet over here for the last couple of days since I had a lot to do. The deadline for my book is coming really close so I haven’t had a lot of free time as you can see. 😊 I decided to not do a Dutch door layout this week. Instead I created this super quick layout. Without the decoration it would be possible to set it up within half an hour max! It has everything I need since I didn’t have a lot to dos for the week, there was only one: write, write, write. On the left page is enough space for my habit tracker and a section for all the to dos for the upcoming week. I still absolutely love this theme, I can’t get enough! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lots of love, x Marie
