Hi everyone! Sometime last year, I did some brainstorming of blog post ideas and at the top of that list I'd written "My Room Tour", clear and bold. I've been wanting to do a room tour for quite some time now and since I'm pretty happy with my layout at the moment, I thought this week would be the perfect time to share one! I reorganise my room a lot and I'm always shuffling things around but the one thing I pride myself in constantly maintaining is the pastel colour scheme. You'll definitely recognise a theme in these photos. I'm so excited to be finally doing this post! I call my blog my happy place but my bedroom is, without a doubt, close second!

Thanks for reading this post! Does your room have a colour scheme? If so, what is it?

(Mostly A's)
You love everything to do with Christmas - the music, the food, the movies, the traditions. You're the one everyone can rely on to spread holiday cheer. For you, Christmas is a month long holiday starting from the moment December 1st rolls around. The festive season is all about bringing family and friends together and for you, there's no better holiday than that.  

(Mostly B's)
When it comes to celebrating Halloween, you're the person for the job. Your excitement for this holiday is contagious. As well as being a keen candy eater and costume maker, Halloween also appeals to you because it is the most unpredictable of the holidays. There's a sense of surprise everywhere you turn. 

(Mostly C's) 
Valentines Day
You love to celebrate love! You're a true romantic so it should come to no one's surprise that  Valentines Day is the holiday where you really excel. As well as spending the day with your significant other, you also like to dedicate some time practicing self love. February 14th is all about showing kindness, not only to the people around you but to yourself as well. 

(Mostly D's) 
New Years Day
When it comes to celebrating New Years, you're all for the party hats, streamers and colourful confetti. For you, there's nothing more magical than watching the changeover from 12:00 to 12:01. Resolutions are also a big part of your love for New Years. You can really aim high with your goals when you know you have a whole 12 months to see them through. 

Thanks for taking the quiz!

At the beginning of this year I decided to take the plunge and start my first proper bullet journal. Last year, I had an unofficial bullet journal where I trialled different spreads and layouts. During this time I was able to get to grips with the system and wrap my head around this new form of planning. I don't have a lot of experience on my side but in the process of starting up, I did pick up on a couple things that I thought would still be good to share. Here are 4 things that helped me when starting my bullet journal. 

1. Research Before Purchasing Anything
When it comes to finding your ideal supplies, I recommend watching comparison videos on Youtube. You'll not only see the stationery being tested side by side but also get a better sense for the wide variety of notebooks and pens on market. Try not to get too caught up in what everyone else in using. Establish what you're hoping to get out of your bullet journal as this will help make sure you're investing in the right products for you. 

2. Play Around With Different Equipment
It's commonly said that all you need to bullet journal is a notebook and a pen but that doesn't go to say that you can't incorporate other creative supplies into your planner. Washi tape, stickers, stamps and stencils can also be used in bullet journalling. Be creative and don't be afraid to experiment with different methods and techniques. The more enjoyable you make your bullet journalling, the more likely you'll commit to it. 

3. Get Inspired Regularly 
Pinterest and Instagram are treasure troves of bullet journalling inspiration. Whenever you feel like you're starting to lose momentum with your planning, scroll through BuJo accounts on social media. If you're bored of your current set up, look for new collections to add or different layouts for your weekly spreads. Sometimes it helps to change things up a bit so don't feel like your journal has to have a consistent theme/aesthetic.

4. Have a Draft Book
Whenever you're planning it's always good to have some scrap paper close by so that you can make any rough sketches if need be. A draft book allows you to test different handwriting styles, headers, borders and other types of doodles. If you see something online but don't know if you'll be able to execute it correctly, you can just give it a go in your second notebook. That way, if it doesn't look the way you want it to, there's still no harm done to your actual journal.  

Thanks for reading! What are your thoughts on bullet journalling? Let me know in the comments below!

I love haul posts. More specifically, I love taking the photos for haul posts. My family and I recently got back from our trip to sunny Brisbane and while we tried to stay outdoors and make the most of the summer heat, we ended up spending most of our time in the air conditioned shopping malls. In today's post, I'm going to be showing you what I bought on holiday. As you can probably imagine, I purchased a lot of summery items while I was away. I hope you enjoy looking through these images as much as I enjoyed photographing them!
