Hello, dear! I’m Sydney, the heart and soul behind the blog. Around here you’ll find my share of rambles on bullet journaling, books, photography and other things. If you’re certain on your stay, you might even learn a little about me, over here.
Above everything else, do enjoy your time, and feel free to explore the site as long as you’d like. Adventure awaits– let’s find it, shall we?
I admit it. I have a huge problem with being obsessed with stationery.
Oh, and yes, if you were wondering, stationery is spelled with an ‘e’. I didn’t learn that till very recently, so there’s a lesson for you. Oh, and happy autumn equinox!!
I admit. I do have a very unhealthy problem of buying and having more stationery than I should. I am absolutely addicted to pen hauls (and Tombow. !!) and wish I could go on them more often. You guys have no idea how happy it makes me to see my Amazon orders come in on the doorstep.
I think I need to stop ranting about how much I’m addicted to stationery. Why don’t we change perspectives and talk about the actual pen haul?
And, luckily, I’ve come up with a decent September spread to show off to you guys. So, I hope you’re all doing well! Now’s the time to sit back, relax, and enjoy my September flip-through.
Oh, before we start I’d like to acknowledge the fact that this month was hard for me. I wasn’t able to start using my bullet journal until this week simply because me and my perfectionist mind hated every. single. spread I created. I don’t think I told you, but I created 3 different spreads for September. I spent hours on them, and I can’t even tell you guys how many pages I ripped out. But, recently, I’ve been obsessed with AmandaRachLee, Pinterest, and others, and it’s been bringing me down. I was starting to compare myself. Which is pretty much what I was telling you guys not to do. (sorry, I’m a hypocrite and it’s a problem)
I caught myself several times when I wanted to simply throw out my bullet journal and start all over again. I honestly wanted to give up. Of course, I never did, but that feeling inside me, the comparing, the rating, all that jazz, was completely dumbing down my own creativity, my own inspirations. I want to warn you guys, it will happen. I was telling all of you not to compare when I was doing it myself. It seriously, from experience, ruins your creativity. So, hopefully, you won’t make the same mistake I did. 😉
But, at the moment, the season is slowly changing to fall (or spring, for you lucky Aussies), so I thought I’d do a little recap of my summer playlists. My taste in music kind of shifted a bit over the summer. It’s more chill, but still pretty peppy. I guess??
I happen to be a fan of oldies music, so please don’t be surprised when you’re bombarded with my 70s mixtapes. there’s a lot of ’em!
Without further ado, let’s move right along. Oh, and if you catch a song you’re into or was on your playlist, let me know in the comments. 😉
