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]
