May Bullet Journal set-up

I had a lot of fun setting up my bullet journal for this month, so thought I would write a post to show you all how I set up for the month of May. Its not exactly how I want it right now but I’m working on it and will get it how I want it with time.

I’m using the Moleskine classic squared notebook.

IMG_0323

I started with making a key for my bullet journal that I can follow, and then moved on to my index pages.

IMG_0324IMG_0325

For the first actual page I done a year overview for 2017.

IMG_0326

I had to make a books to read page as I have so many books that I want to read, and once I have read each one I will colour the books in.

Next is my May title page

IMG_0328I then have my monthly overview and habit tracker.

IMG_0329IMG_0330

I am keeping track of when I drink plenty of water each day, eat well, check Instagram, twitter and WordPress, publish a new blog post, and when I have read my book and eat breakfast as I very rarely eat in the morning but want to try and eat breakfast more.

I then made a page for my blog this includes blog post ideas that I have had during the month and then a blog stats tracker in the corner to track at the beginning of each month.

IMG_0331

This is followed by a page with goals that I have set myself.

And then the weekly spreads which aren’t perfect and I’ve got to add things to the weeks ahead as I have done each week of May already, and I can just add bits that I want when I want to.

IMG_0333IMG_0334IMG_0336IMG_0337IMG_0338

There is so much more that I want to gradually add into my bullet journal as there is other things that I know I want to keep track of, but that’s the best thing with a bullet journal you can add and take away things as much as you want, you only need to add what you need.

My weekend 6th and 7th May 2017!

I had the weekend off from work so I stayed with my boyfriend for the weekend.

Saturday

On Saturday we spent the day fishing,it was a really nice sunny day and it was so peaceful and relaxing to be sat outside for the day not having to worry about anything else.Even had sausage sandwiches for lunch and then burgers for dinner whilst fishing with endless cups of tea throughout the day.We packed up at about 8:30pm and went home,and just spent the rest of the night relaxing and watching TV.


Sunday

Sunday was more of a chilled relaxed day, I hadn’t had much sleep on Saturday night so I was really tired and not really up for doing anything.

We went to a local café for breakfast, which was delicious.

We then went to our friends house as it had been his birthday on Saturday but  due to us fishing we hadn’t been able to go and see him so went round Sunday as we had a present for him, we stayed there for the afternoon, then went down to where we had been fishing on Saturday as a friend was fishing there, and stayed there for about an hour before going home, then we just relaxed for the rest of the evening watching TV.

April Favourites!

Today is the 1st May, where is the year going??

But 1st day of the month means it’s time for a monthly favourites post…so here are my April favourites.

Ed Sheeran-Divide

Divide_coverI have been absolutely loving this album and listening to it non-stop, even in my boyfriends car, so he now knows all the songs just as well as me haha, but he does like Ed Sheeran so I can get away with playing his music in the car.

Fast and Furious 8

fast-and-furious-8

I went to the cinema for work to watch this film, I love all the films in the series so really wanted to see this anyway. The film was so good with a good storyline, but was definitely missing something with no Paul Walker this time(RIP).

Lee Stafford chopstick styler

chopstick stylerI have wanted these for a while but have never got them, my boyfriend bought them as an Easter present, and I love them. The styler produces really tight curls which look incredible.

Lindt Bunny

14789_XXX_v1

Lindt is my favourite chocolate and I love when the gold bunnys go into the shops, my boyfriend bought me one of these for Easter and then I somehow ended up with another two as well haha, all of these have very sadly been eaten and I haven’t got any left.

Nivea express hydration primer

IMG_0294I have already mentioned this in a post recently, but I have really been loving this during April as my skin had been felling really dry, after using this for a few weeks my skin has returned back to normal and doesn’t feel dry at all, so I have been using this everyday under my makeup.

Books I have read recently

I have read a few books recently and thought that I would share them with you.

My sweet revenge by Jane Fallon

Secret slave by Anna Ruston

secret slave

Stolen girl by Katie Taylor and Veronica Clark

stolen girl

One with you by Sylvia Day

one-with-you

I really enjoyed reading all these books, the two true stories (stolen girl and secret slave) will not be for everyone as some of the writing is quite graphic and will be upsetting for some people, these two books upset me whilst reading them but I like these types of books, for the endings and seeing how the people in the books got out of the situation that they are in. The other two books (my sweet revenge and one with you)I have spoken about previously in blog posts. Would definitely recommend all these books.

The Harry Potter Tag!

I love anything Harry Potter whether it’s the books or the movies, I seen this tag and I just had to do it…so here it is The Harry Potter tag!

Favourite Harry Potter book?

This is really hard to choose but I’m going to say The deathly hallows, I like that you get to see all the characters in a different way in this book ,Harry, Ron and Hermione aren’t in school anymore, all the members of the D.A rebelling and standing up for themselves against the death eaters.

Least favourite Harry Potter book?

Again this is hard to choose but it would probably be The order of the phoenix, I cant really say why but it just doesn’t stand out to me as much as the other books do.

Favourite Harry Potter movie?

The deathly hallows part 2, I love the battle scenes at the end, and it was adapted from the book so well.

Least favourite Harry Potter movie?

I haven’t really got a least favourite but will say The order of the phoenix.

Favourite quote?

Harry-Potter-Wallpaper-Quotes-4

untitled

Favourite Weasley?

Ron, I like Fred and George as well though.

Favourite female character?

Hermione

Favourite villain?

Bellatrix LeStrange, she is different to others and love reading about her in the books.

Favourite male character?

Neville Longbottom, you see him change so much through each book/movie, and he goes from not standing up for himself at all to standing up to all the death eaters in the deathly hallows and leading the D.A, and then killing the snake right at the end to defeat Voldemort.

Favourite professor?

Professor McGonagall, she always looks out for Harry, Ron and Hermione and will help in any way she can, even if that means breaking rules.

Least favourite character?

I cant decide

Is there a character you felt differently about in the movies?

Ginny-she didn’t come across the same way in the movies as she did in the books.

Is there a movie you preferred to the book?

No

Richard Harris or Michael Gambon as Dumbledore?

They both played the part really well so cant choose between the two.

Your top thing (person or event) that wasn’t in the movie that you wanted there the most?

In the deathly hallows before the Dursley’s leave, Harry and Dudley talk and Dudley tells Harry that he doesn’t think he’s a waste of space, I love that part in the book and it would have been good to have seen that in the movie.

If you could remake any of the Harry Potter movies which would it be?

I wouldn’t remake any of them but ii would add the scenes with the kitchens at Hogwarts and showing Dobby and all of the other elves, that would have been great to have seen.

Which house was your first gut feeling you’d be apart of?

Gryffindor

Which house were you actually sorted into on Pottermore?

Gryffindor

Which class would be your favourite?

Care of magical creatures

Which spell do you think would be most useful to learn?

Accio or Reparo as that one could really save some money.

Is there any aspect of the books you’d want to change?

I really wouldn’t want to change any of them simply because I do like them as they are and can read them countless times over and over because of that.

Favourite marauder?

Moony

If you could bring one character back to life which would it be?

Dobby-he risked his life so many times for Harry and in the end lost his life saving him, Dobby is one of my favourite characters so was upset when he died.

If you were on the quidditch team, which position would you play?

I would like to say seeker as I feel I would do best in that position.

Were you happy with the ending?

Overall yes, there were some characters that I would have liked to have kept their lives but everything adds more to the story which is what has made it what it is.

 

March Favourites 

There hasn’t really been any new products that I have been loving during March, but I have found myself getting back into things that I have loved in the past…so here are my March favourites.

Amazon Kindle

img_0267.jpg

As I have said before, I love to read, I have had my kindle for a few years now, but this month I have really been enjoying using it to read my books on.

My sweet revenge by Jane Falloncover.jpg.rendition.186.288

This has got to be my favourite book that I read during March, I would recommend it to anyone that they read it.

My camera


I have been really enjoying using my camera for photography during March and have been trying to take it out with me as much as possible in case there is something I want to photograph. My camera is the Canon SX410 IS, I love this camera, its a 20MP camera with 40x optical zoom, the image stabilisation really helps as well, I used my camera recently a few weeks ago when I went fishing for the day to take pictures of the wildlife around the lake I was at, you can see a blog post on this here.

The sims 4

 

The_Sims_4_Box_Art

I have always loved playing the sims and got the sims 4 as soon as it came out, I hadn’t played it for a little while but really got back into playing it in March, I just love being able to control the lives of the characters and getting them to do whatever I want, I get absorbed into the game for hours.

Well that’s it for my March favourites, there weren’t many but enough to do this post.

The one person that does this is my boyfriend,he’s done a few things over the years that we have been together,an example is when I was helping with something and he told me to do something,so after me doing it for a few minutes he burst out laughing because I didn’t need to be doing it and instead i just looked like an idiot,he found it hilarious…i didn’t.
