DIY | MARBLE BULLET JOURNAL

New year, new me, means new ways of being organized so I’m trying something, well, new! I’ve finally jumped on board and decided to try out bullet journaling. I’ve been mulling with the idea of starting a bullet journal for awhile, but wasn’t sure if it was for me if I wanted to set one up and stick to it. But I finally decided that there was no better time than January to start off a new planner! I think the key thing with bullet journaling is to not sweat the small stuff. Don’t be afraid to break the rules and to customize it to your liking. It’s a journal designed by you for you!

Do any of you bullet journal? Any ideas or layouts you recommend trying out? I’m most excited about the habit trackers, I really think that they will help me achieve my goal of getting my splits this year with the constant reminder to stretch daily. The incentive to cross off a box or colour in a square is very enticing, guess I’ve always worked best with a reward based system of encouragement.

I couldn’t find the exact notebook I wanted to use so I ended up customizing my own cover for my bullet journal. The minimalistic-tumblr-loving-girl in me obviously settled on DIY-ing a marble cover to spruce up my plain black cover. I used the same method asย this nail art look I’ve done in the past. Super easy and fast to do you may end up wanting to marble-ize everything in your possession!

NAILS | BLACK MARBLE NAILS

Can’t ever go wrong with a bit of black and white. Ever since Alexander Wang showed those marble surfboards seasons back, I feel like marble has been THE rock of choice for a chic touch. Whether it be a marble vinyl to make-over a table, or marble studs; marble is always in style, so why not wear it on your nails?

Now that it’s cooler and I’ve been breaking out the darker polishes, I thought it would be fitting to do a black based marble. I think it turned out pretty well for a first try, super easy and basically fool proof, I can’t wait to try the white version of these in the near future.
