I have been journaling or keeping a diary on and off since I was young. Do you remember the diaries that had little padlocks on them? Thinking it was so safe locked, turns out, a little fiddle with a hair pin and the thing popped open ha ha!
Self care is important to practise and it comes in so many different forms. Yes, a face mask or a soak in the bath is relaxing and pampering, but have you ever thought about self care ideas centred around stationery?
I came across the BusyB brand online and reached out to them to work on content for stationery week earlier this year and they were kind enough to provide products for a giveaway also. You can read my review of their products from Stationery Week here. I love the quality of their products and I was in need of a diary and I decided I needed a BusyB diary in my life.
I am back with another bullet journal set up blog post, for all you planner and stationery babes! I have to keep reminding myself that it is going to be November, its nearly the end of 2019 and Christmas, which I am super excited for! Where has 2019 gone?

I don’t know about you but October just feels super autumnal and it makes me so happy. I am able to wear cosy jumpers and scarves. I was excited to design another fresh months worth of bullet journal layout pages. I of course had to incorporate pumpkins into the pages because of Halloween ha ha!
I love this time of year, the beautiful colours changing in nature. Although, I love sunny days I cannot wait for it to be colder and I can wear cosy jumpers and just lots of layers ha ha! The colours in nature for Autumn are beautiful and I thought it would make a great colour scheme for Autumnal Bullet Journal spreads. Having my bullet journal gives me the space to practise my doodles (I need all the practise I can get, ha ha!), borders and titles with different lettering.
