  1. It looks like such a brilliant way to doodle. I am a huge doodle and do it constantly in all my meetings but have to hide it. This would be like brazen organised doodling with some purpose to it! πŸ˜€

  2. I am so envious of your bullet journal. I’ve tried a couple of times and just can’t get into them, but whenever I see yours I really want to! My mind is now percolating as to how I can bring some of these elements into my own thought journal.

    • The only way it works for me is making it just for me…originally I had so much in it that I’d seen other people doing but I just don’t use it so this is pretty much 100% what I’ll actually use now. A thought journal sounds amazing!

  3. I have been only doing mine for about four months but lovely it. I really need to set up 2017 I am so far behind this week with being in America. This has motivating me. Looks lovely hun.

    • Thanks Jenny, I suppose the beauty of it is that you can leave it alone when you’ve got other stuff going up and just pick it up as and when you need it – hope it helps you get going for the new year!

  4. It looks great. I like the idea of a bullet journal. I used to use one twenty years ago to keep track of things like books read, places to visit, films to watch, restaurants to go to…
    Good luck with filling yours up, achieving your goals and getting on with your blog work.

  5. I love your bullet journal posts, I’ve been rubbish with mine recently but this inspired me yesterday to get it out and make a fresh start for 2017. I think I’m starting to figure out what works for me and what doesn’t which makes a huge difference. Yours always looks so pretty. xx

    • I think the beauty of the whole thing is that you can just pick it up when you feel like you need it, I can go a week or so without looking it mine but it’s there if I need to get stuff done!! I’ve cut so much out of mine that I wasn’t using, everyone is different. Thank you lovely xx

  6. I am so rubbish with bullet journals. I love them, and you do it so well, but in reality for me I struggle with the fancy bits and keeping the calendars upto date. Im trying a normal diary this year with a few pages from bullet journals and also on the daily one my habits and stats so its a mixture really. I just wish I was creative because id get on so much better with it πŸ™ x

    • Firstly, I think you are so creative Mary, but you’ve not long had a baby! I don’t think I would have managed this a couple of years ago, now the boys are all a little more independent I find I have the energy at the end of the day to keep this going, haha. It’s a great way to switch off for me. Your diary sounds like a good mix, it always has to be something that works for you πŸ™‚ xx

  7. I’ve got so many notebooks hanging around the house and my hubby is always telling me to bin them and go digital. I love that you have such a neat and orderly approach to your 2017 planning. Mine doesn’t look anything like that. Goal number one – sort my messy scrawl so I can understand it! πŸ™‚

    • Haha, my handwriting isn’t great so I tend to print everything but I’m trying to get better. Everyone does it differently which is whats great about it. I could never go digital – it just doesn’t work for me, I’ve tried it. I need to physically write things down I think for it to sink in!

  8. Really enjoyed this post Hayley:) Like you, I just started my bullet journal last year. I didn’t really get in to it then (think I tried it too close to Christmas), but hope to get much more out of it this year. Your post has given me a few new ideas:) And like you I also hope to do more yoga in 2017! πŸ™‚ x

    • I have already failed on the more yoga front but I’m feel like I’ll be ready to get back into it next week…I hope!! I’m looking forward to seeing more of your bullet journal too this year πŸ™‚ xx

  9. Your bullet journal looks so pretty and organised, I think it’s a great idea but I just don’t think I could make the time to keep up with one! It is so lovely though, I will enjoy reading about yours! πŸ™‚ Love your 2017 design. x

  10. Your journal is a thing of beauty Hayley and I am in awe of it. I love keeping lists and goals but I am not creative in the slightest which is why I don’t think bullet journaling would work for me. Saying that my 10 year old is far more creative than me, and I can definitely see her doing this when she is older. Lovely post x

    • I say this all the time but it really doesn’t have to be fancy or arty at all, my day to day lists are just plain. It’s a lovely way to express yourself though if that’s what you like, I’m sure you daughter would be very creative in one! xx

  11. I really love the simplicity of your layouts – mine is quite simple too, so it’s nice to see someone else has the same sort of look as I do! I love the ‘this year I will’ list too! #BuJoBloggers x
