What Is Bullet Journaling?

Just in case you’re NOT on the bullet journaling train yet and have no clue what I’m on about… 

Bullet journaling or the “BuJo” was created by Ryder Carroll and has quickly become one of the most trendy ways to journal when it comes to productivity, organization and goal setting. That is how I use it anyway. 

Doodling and making lists has never been more fun or effective.

And you can keep everything – all your thoughts, ideas, to-do’s and so on – organized (and pretty lookin’) in your favorite notebook. 

It’s best described as a mindfulness practice disguised as a productivity system.

Ryder himself states that the BuJo is meant “to help you track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future.”

    I'm Mia! Your new online bestie.

    I’m just like you - an introvert, a dreamer, and someone who just knew she was meant to be creative and free. A girl with a MacBook with thoughts to share. In the last 5 years, I’ve turned my little secret blog into a six figure online business, creating content for a living and entered the cozy vibes and pajamas lifestyle - and life has never been better (or cozier).


    Hey lovely!

    Cozy business vibes forever.

    A safe place for you to grow, start your dream biz and shine online. I'm here, cheering you on like Kirsten Dunst in Bring It On. xoxo Mia
