Why I like to Bullet Journal!

Hey Everyone

Today I’m going to tell you, why I like to Bullet Journal.

First

I like the flexibility that comes with it. You see the Bullet Journal system is really easy and you can adjust EVERYTHING from layout, design to fonts and colors.  If you’re someone who likes to draw then why not make everything in your journal artistic? What ever you choose to do and at the end if it works FOR YOU then roll with it.

As for me, I like to highlight things with colors and try new layouts and designs. My Bullet Journal isn’t really artistic and more of a minimalistic Bullet Journal but I’m in love with it.

Second

Maximize your space! Do you ever had a planner and you thought … Shit there are so many blank pages? Or Shit I could use more space than that?
That is something you won’t have in a Bullet Journal. You might have some spaces that are blank but you can easily fill them with some drawings or Stickers. Sure you can do that in a planner too but doing so on whole pages that you could have used for planning?

I like to do the yearly overview, the monthly and the weekly. For now this is enough as my workload gets more I’ll also do some dailies. Even thou there are things that don’t really work I always have the option to chance things up in the next week. That way I’ll find out what works best for me.

Third

The collections are one of my favorites! These are lists or other stuff you don’t want to forget like  the books you’ve read. Or movies you’ve watched. Or you include a memories page for the month or for the year. There you can draw or clue stuff in you want to remember. You could use it as a why to collect ideas for blogging or your YouTube channel. The ideas for this are endless …

As for me my most valued collections are:

1. Random facts about me,
2. My Reasons to be a minimalist,
3. 10 Level Life / 100 Life Goals

Fourth

Tracking. The most useful tool I have ever got to know of! Tracking is what I do the most and you can track EVERYTHING! This is also part of the collections. I track a lot of things like my Tattoo appointments and the expenses I had. I know for a fact that I’ve spent too much money already … Or you could track your behavior, this is also most common in the BuJo Community, your mood, the weather, your health, your weight … ENDLESS!

Other things I keep track of are my fix cost per month, because they all get collected directly from my bank account, Anime I’ve watched (also my longest one), When was the last time I did …, Ideas for gifts, my Blog schedule (New). I’m in the middle of finding a new job so I use this method to keep track with my status of my applications.

Fifth

The Index! Everything that you write in your Journal has a title and this title with it’s page-number is written down in the index on the first view pages. That way you can easily find what you’re looking for.

Sixth

The Key/ Color coating! As for me I don’t have so many of them. I have a dot for task / Events and this ” – ” for any types of notes. If something is important I’ll add a ” ! “. For color coating I only do Birthdays in a dark green. That’s it.

You can do as much as you like with it for me I noticed less is more.

Love you

Colour Freedom by Knight & Wilson

Hey Everyone

Yesterday I changed my hair color but mostly because I really wanted to test out the semi-permanent hair dye by Knight & Wilson.

First I’ll show what my hair looked like before. WaterMark_2017-07-02-21-00-17
As you can see I had really pink hair and also my roots were showing quite a bit. At the ends where I had some leftovers from my last bleach the color had washed out a lot.

In the middle part of my hair there was still a lot of pink and as a vibrant color too.

So I needed a base where I could start…
The first thing I did was bleach my hair. Honestly I didn’t wanted to bleach my hair again after the last time which was somewhat over a year ago. I used the same bleach again, blond extreme bleach L1++ which can bleach up to 9 nuances by Schwarzkopf. After putting on 2 packages of it on my hair I covered it all in aluminum foil and on top some cling film to ensure the heat. Bleach develops better with heat and it was really hot where I had placed the bun. I was really afraid my hair will be burned but all went well. WaterMark_2017-07-02-21-01-25

I was left with really bright roots, a vibrant shiny peach color for my middle part and the already bleached ends were a mix of yellow and a bit of orange. Well I thought the pink would lift more but I didn’t expected it to be blond.

The next step was to dye my roots so when they grow out it wouldn’t be noticeable. For that I choose to use a gray color because my natural hair looks grayish while growing out.

WaterMark_2017-07-03-12-54-44

For the roots I choose Colour Freedom Metallic Glory in Silver Blond this is a permanent hair dye by Knight & Wilson. I applied it on my roots and some highlights throughout my hair. After waiting 30 minutes I washed it all out.

It was lighter and brighter as I thought it would be. But it is a beautiful color and it would look amazing when done all over my hair but seeing with what I started out with that’s not possible. So if anyone wants to have white grayish hair this is your color to go. It really has a silver shimmer and looks amazing on my roots. In Germany you can get these colors in Rossmann for 8.95 €. There are other colors you can choose from too, from light to dark.

The last color I wanted to try from Colour Freedom was this white Blond also by Knight & Wilson which is only 7.95 €. I didn’t use a brush to put it on my hair like with the other two colors. The consistency of the color is like conditioner and was really easy to apply. Don’t mistake the color because it comes out violet-blue so it can balance out all the yellow and orange in your hair and leaves you with white blond color.

If I had normal bleached hair without the pink it would have worked perfectly! I’m impressed how my hair turned out after using it. WaterMark_2017-07-02-21-02-17

After leaving it on for a little over an hour it toned down the brightness and left me with a nice rose color as an leftover from my pink and my pre- bleached ends well they have a blueish color now because I left it on longer as in the description descried.

While I had it on my head my hair looked like unicorn hair. I really loved how it looked.

WaterMark_2017-07-03-13-23-03Here a picture what my hair looks like in the sun. I also have to admit this is the lightest color I had in years.

I’m in the middle of finding a new job so this is probably not the best time to try out new colors but…

…THIS IS JUST WHO I AM!

My hair needs a lot of oil now because of the bleaching.
Whatever. ∗˚(* ˃̤൬˂̤ *)˚∗

See you soon

Frixion Pastel Highlighters

Hey everyone

today I wanted to talk about the Frixion Pastel Highlighters. First… I LOVE THEM!
I started Bullet Journaling in March and I got sucked in badly. Within the community there are a view products that basically everyone has like Tombow dual brush pens, Zebra Mildliners, Leuchtturm 1917 notebook and so on…

WaterMark_2017-06-29-13-54-21

Even thou Tombow as well as Zebra Mildliners have Pastel colors I find that the best Pastel colors are the Frixion Pastel Highlighters. I don’t have a Tombow dual brush pen to really compare it to but I do have all Zebra Mildliners. There are some in it that are more on the soft colored side but not as soft as the Frixion Highlighters.

My problem with the Tombow is that when I see a set that I like then I only want one or two colors from it and buying them separately makes them even more expensive. I don’t say that the Zebra Mildliners are cheap because they are probably not. Anyway compared to these two brands these Frixion Highlighters are cheap and really cool. Best of all you can erase them if you made a mistake  .

WaterMark_2017-06-29-13-46-53

As I mentioned before I use them in my bullet Journal for highlighting because they aren’t too aggressive or overpowering in the page compared to the writing as you can see in the picture. There is also no bleed through and barely any ghosting going on  and I tried them out in my Leuchttrum 1917 in A5 size which has thinner paper than the A4 size where I also tested them.

I got mine on Etsy by Colorsplashsupplies I hope they’ll restock it again.

See you soon Rin✒

I have a happy announcement to make because I … 。゚✶ฺ.ヽ(*´∀`*)ノ.✶゚ฺ。

FINISHED MY TRAINEE TIME!!! 。゚✶ฺ.ヽ(*´∀`*)ノ.✶゚ฺ。

I’m really happy that I finished these 3 years and don’t have to redo anything.

Towards the end it became really exhausting to keep going while all you want is to be left alone and stop caring about it. Still it feels SO good to be done with everything.

I wish you a wonderful day and don’t let the rain get you.

So nice

Hey my Friends

You know it’s really nice to come and go from WORK while daylight shines bright on the sky. 😊

Over winter I went to and came from WORK when it was dark. At times I didn’t even notice that it was day at all. For me it was like night the whole day. 😵😱

😂 Almost posted it in the wrong blog. 😂

CY Soon Rin✒
