BUJO Feed

New bujo bag

I wanted to share some pictures of the bujo bag I got yesterday.  It's a Contents brand 'weekender' makeup bag.  It makes the perfect bag to carry my bullet journal, pens, and some extras.  Here are some:

 It's got a mesh pocket in the front, a clear pocket in the back and a small two sided clear pocket in the middle.  It holds a lot of stuff.  I love it! The little dangle thingee didn't come with it, I added it. It's a palm tree keychain! ^_^

 


So busy!~

It has been an incredibly busy day for me.  I've been gone almost all day!  I went for my walk and it was COLD.  Well, the temperature was around forty, but when the wind blew it was freezing!  I got my walk in and came home and had a cup of coffee and a quick snack and then went to Family Dollar.  I got my essentials for the month and then headed to the grocery store.  I spend WAY too much in there and I forgot a couple of items.  I brought those home and put them away.  That was a job in itself!  I then went by my friend's house to see something he got in the mail.  He and I went to eat and then hit Goodwill.  I found a brand new hoodie that has Myrtle Beach on it. ^___^  It is the same brand as the hoodies I buy at the beachwear stores.  I swear it looks like it's never been worn. I got it for $5!  My friend found a fleece pullover half zip hoodie with Myrtle Beach on it and he got that for me.  I got two cool MB shirts and I didn't even leave town. :P  I also found a cute set of Halloween stampers for .99.  They were originally a $3 item at the Target dollar spot.   I love stamps and I love halloween!

I dropped him off and then came home.  My other friend had wanted to do something earlier, so I called her to see if she wanted to go to Starbucks.  She drove us to Target where I spent too much money!  I got a better bag for my bujo.  This one is perfect.  It's actually a make up bag like the one I bought on Amazon, but this one is a little bigger, with better handles, and it's just great.  I love it.  I can use the one I got on Amazon for something else.  I'll do a picture of the bag perhaps tomorrow.  I also got two cute rolls of washi in the dollar spot, a set of adorbs sticky notes, also from the dollar spot!  I got a little draw string bag.... yes, dollar spot. :P  I also got a four pack of the rolling wite out.  The two pack is 2.99 and they had the four pack on sale for 4.99 so I grabbed it.  I use it a lot!  I correct things in my checkbook and I also use it for envelopes when I make a mistake on the address.  It's also good for fixing goof in the bullet journal!  I got all that and I found a compact of pressed powder that didn't cost ten dollars!  I only use powder every now and then because my face gets really red.  I haven't used make up in years!  

After we left Target, we went by Starbucks.  I ran in and got a Venti cascara latte and grabbed two of the Blonde sleeves to add to my collection.  I came home and did my workouts.  I still have a lot to do before bed and it's almost 11.  Yikes!  I need a few more hours to add to this day!  Wow, I didn't plan to write this much today.  Good for me! ^__^


Starbucks time denied!

So, I decided to load up my messenger bag and go to Starbucks this afternoon.  I wanted to work on pen pal letters and spend the afternoon relaxing in Starbucks.  I got there and they were completely full.  There was no where for me to sit! :(  I got my cascara latte and a multi grain bagel and left.  I was very disappointed as I was looking forward to staying quite a while.  I came home and crashed on my sofa and I have been here ever since.  

I finished the zombie book I was reading and found the second one in the series was a free to borrow on on Amazon Prime.  I downloaded it to my Kindle, but I haven't started it yet.  I got in my walk today.  It was overcast and a bit drizzly at times.  It didn't really rain though so that was okay.  I did get damp and I had to use my umbrella a bit, but it wasn't too bad.  I came home and relaxed a bit.  I planned to do m workouts at the usual time but then didn't.  I will do those later. 

I packed up and headed to Starbucks, but like I said, there was no where for me to sit.  I miss the old location.  There was more seating there.  I like the new locations drive thru and how nice it is, but it's just not big enough.  They really need more seating.  

I created my habit tracker in bujo for February.  I am doing color themes for the months this year.  January's theme was blue, February's is going to be pink.  I have my habit tracker done and I plan to put something on the other page, I just am not sure what.  Probably a February calendar.  

I need to be thinking about what I'm going to fix for dinner.  So far, I have no idea what I want!  I'll eat dinner and then do my workouts.  I'll only have to put my bed linen back on my bed and I'll have everything I needed to do done for today.  I took a bath earlier and washed my hair, so that is done.  I also already did my French lesson.  I just need to finish this post and then put the linens back on the bed.  Oh, and do my workouts!  Those won't be bad as it's arm day.  Those are usually not too bad!


First Etsy order has arrived!

My Etsy order came today and everything is so cute!  I ordered two Starbucks charms.  I got those and a cute little page marker freebie.  Everything is adorable.  The charms are really well made. I love them.  I am not sure where I'm going to use them yet.  I know they looked cute on my travellers notebook!  Here is my order and some other pictures I took:

My items were carefully packaged and came through fine.  I would recommend this Etsy shop! ^_^

 


Surprises!

Well, my Etsy order did NOT arrive today.  It says it's in Roanoke and has been since early this morning with no updates.  So frustrating!  Guess what did come?  Yes, my Amazon order!  I had this item on my wish list for a long time.  I had gone back and forth with getting it to be a carrying case for my bullet journal.  I finally decided to order it and see how well it would work.  It's great!  It's actually a travel make up bag, but it fits my bujo and my pen case perfectly with room to spare.  It's pretty, too!

It has a piece that you can velcro in the middle, but I'm not using it.  The little net pockets in the front cover are perfect for small items like post it notes or other things.  The green thing is the top of the cardboard that a candle came in.  Free stencil! :p  I like the bag, it's the perfect size.  I could put the middle piece in and put my pens in that.  It's meant to hold make up brushes so it would work well with pens.  I really like my pencil case though because it stands upright and folds down to become a pencil 'cup'.  This little makeup bag is great.  It's the perfect bujo bag. ^_^


Oh boy did it snow!

I was so not expecting the snow that we got today.  Yes, I knew  they were calling for snow but they are saying around 3 inches total.  Last official count I heard, we were almost to 7 inches!  It's probably going to be awhile before I can get back out to walk!  I went out and walked in the yard in it a bit this afternoon and it was crazy deep.  It was all powdery this afternoon.  After it finally stopped snowing, I went out to the front walk with a cutting board and cleared the walk!  The snow was so light, it was easy.  The only bad thing was that I couldn't find any of my gloves.  My poor hands were numb and then hurting when I came in!  I need to find my gloves!

I did my workouts this evening.  I was glad to do those since I couldn't walk.  I used the day to sit at my desk and look out at the snow. I also drank a lot of coffee!  I put three 'new' trackers in my bullet journal.  I put the Pokemon Go trackers of Generation 1-3 in there.  That took a while, so I it was a good day to do it when I couldn't really go anywhere! :p  Tomorrow I plan to write pen pal letters.  Hopefully I can get out before too many more days and get them mailed.  The mail didn't even run here today!  I hope it does tomorrow.  I'm expected some things.  One is supposed to be here tomorrow, but who knows with this crazy weather. :P

Here is one of the pictures I took today:

The building on the left is an old chicken house that has been on my property since forever.  You can see a outdoor table and chairs on the right.  There is a swing near the back of the yard.  It was so lovely out there, but it's going to be crazy trying to go anywhere anytime soon!

 


New colors again?!

Yes, I changed the background and colors of the blog again.  I guess one day I'll be satisfied and quit changing it so much.  I am liking these colors.  I love the blue and the background is pretty.  I hope to keep this one for a while!  Who knows with me though.  I might change it all again tomorrow!

I got in my walk and did my workouts today.  I hadn't posted my workouts to Insta in days so I caught up with that.  I finished my book last night and went to check on Gwendy's Button Box to find out that the file (I checked it out from the library) was an audio book not an ebook.  Phooey!  I will keep looking for a ebook copy I can borrow.  For now, I'm going to the true crime book next.  

I want to do some things in my bujo.  I'm going to have a coffee tracker where I rate different brands of coffee that I try.  I have only tried a few so far, but I plan to try new ones more often.  At the moment, the only ones that can go in there are: Maxwell House medium roast, Starbucks Pike Place Roast, Seattle's Best Henry's blend, and Dunks.  I just got a bag of Dunks but I haven't opened it yet so I can add it in there but I can't rate it just yet.  I have quite a lot of my Pike left before I open it.  I want to try many different coffees.  I recently found a free sample online and I've sent for that. If you know of any place that gives out coffee samples, let me know!  If you are Starbucks, send me all the coffee! :P

I want to look for inspiration of things to add to my Bujo.  I am going to Pineteriest after posting this and wee what I can find.  I want to add more fun things to it!  There are a lot of bujo ideas on there.  Hopefully I can find some things that I'd like to add to my bullet journal.  Wish me luck!

 

 


Sunday Starbucks

I got in my walk today. It's still very cold here. It hasn't gotten above freezing in over a week!  Hopefully it will warm up soon.  I came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I had lunch and then did a few things around here.  I decided that I wanted to go to Starbucks and write pen pal letters.  That is exactly what I did!  I went over and wrote out all my letters.  My poor hand was so sore!  I still need to get them in envelopes and stamped, but they are written.  

I got a Cascara latte while they still have the cascara syrup.  I'm going to be so sad when it's gone.  I'll have to figure out what I want to take it's place.  They are supposed to be introducing a new drink on the 9th.  I wonder what it will be?  Maybe it will be my new favorite! We'll see. I was able to get a new gift card tonight.  They had the new Year of the Dog cards and I picked up a few for my collection. ^_^

I have my bed linen in the dryer and it should be ready to put back on the bed.  I only have to wash my hair and my total to do list is done for today.  I took lots of pictures of my bujo at Starbucks.  Their lighting is so much better than mine!  I took pictures of my two weeklies, and some of my trackers.  It looks good!  I wish I had lighting like that at home.

 


Etsy, glasses, bujo, and more!

I made my first order to Etsy today.  There is a shop that I've had on my favorites for a while because she has cute Starbucks handmade items.  Tonight I ordered two little charms from her.  They look so cute.  I'll talk about them and the shop when I receive them.  Speaking of Starbucks, I got a big sticker from the Starbucks at Tanger Outlet in Myrtle Beach.  I put it on the front of my new bullet journal today. ^___^  I like it!

Glasses, what about them, you ask.  Well, several nights ago I broke my glasses. OH NO!  I love these glasses and went to Zenni Optical to order the same exact pair.  They were sold out of my frames. WAH!!! They DID have them in pink, but I'm not wearing pink glasses. lol I might order a pair for fun, but not for everyday.  I found a plain pair that are similar to the ones I had and I've ordered them.  I just wish they would get here.  I'm wearing the broken ones with some black duct tape on them.  They broke on the part around one of the lenses.  It's not the best fix, but I can wear them if I'm careful until my new ones come.  I plan to buy another pair next month so I'll always have a backup if this happens again.  I have the pair I wore before these, but the lenses are scratched up pretty badly and it gives me a headache to wear them.

I did some more work on my bujo today.  I still haven't added my Pokemon Go trackers and I'm trying to decide if I'm going to.  I can still keep track with the ones in the old bujo.  Plus, if they keep adding more Pokemon to the game, I'll just have to add more and more.  We'll see.  I'm looking for ideas on Pinterest and Google for spreads for the bujo.  I want to add stuff.  

I am doing my current weekly with the day of the week on the left page and the right page mostly blank. I will use it to decorate with souvenirs of my week.  If I don't have any souvenirs to add or stickers or what have you, I'll just do a 'week in review' written narrative.  I think that will be cool.  Here is next week's layout before the ink:

I like this layout because I can add something to the left page on the bottom right and I can put lots of things on the right page.  I think it will work out well for me. ^_^
