COLOR PENS

          Zebra Mild pack

What is critical when it comes to choosing pens for BuJo is that they should not bleed.

 

They should still be bright but do not bleed through the page. 

 

These pens below are relatively bright and don’t bleed (almost).

        Zebra Neon pack

The above set fits my style better, but if you have certain creative ideas in mind

 

where these pens could help, go ahead and get the neon set.

 

(Pictures are clickable)

 

 

         A bigger set of Zebra Pens

A set of 5 pens might do for you; but if you paint a lot, you might want to get a set of 15 pens.  

 

They are double ended: there are a highlighter side and a pointed side of the same color.

 

I personally think they are good for headliners, they are thick so do not expect fine lines with them.

       Planner Pens

A set of 18 pens. They are fine and smooth.

 

They bleed more than the pens shown above or below (i.e., Zebra and Micron) but not very badly.

 

I would go again for them if I needed particular colors. 

 

(FYI: I don’t do creative layouts anymore:))

             Micron Pens

A set of 8 pens. They are known for not fading away but staying for a long time.

 

They are very smooth. It goes not get ruined when you go over with a marker.

         Tanmit Pens

These pens are known for their unique and bright colors.

 

You will get a whole variety to choose from.

 

They are smooth and easy to use but they may bleed a little, especially if you use the ‘brush’ side.

WHITE PENS

 

       Uni Ball White Pens

The most important feature of the white pens is they should be able to write over anything.

 

These pens can; they are bright enough and dry out easily.

BLACK PENS

 

            Pigma Micron Drawing Pen Set

This set gets handy when you sketch and need different thickness: ultra fine and thicker.

 

These pens are waterproof and lightfast (which Micron is known for).

 

They smudge only slightly when you touch your writing right away,

 

but honestly it does not completely ruin your writing.

 

If you go over with a marker right after, it does not smudge though.

 

Be aware that the nibs are not refillable.

          Faber Castell Pitt Pen

This set also comes in different thickness: ultra fine and thicker.

 

It does not bleed through the page and does not smudge.

 

I think this is what distinguishes them from the other sets.

 

If you touch your writing right away, it will not smudge at all.

 

Be aware that the nibs are not refillable.

         Copic Multiliner Pens

They do not bleed through the page.

 

When you go over with a marker or touches your writing,

 

you may need to wait a bit till it dries out.

 

Otherwise, it gets ruined. They have refillable and replaceable nibs.

 

Thus, they are more expensive but could be cheaper in the long run.

PENCILS

          Faber-Castel Graphite Sketch Set (includes metal sharpener and dust-free eraser)

 

(Pictures are clickable)

At some point, I realized that I need a greater variety of pencils I was using at that time.

 

 

I like minimalist designs, but I also had moments when I felt like sketching, drawing… 

 

 

To emphasize all the shades, I need more than just HB (Hard and Black).

 

Sometimes I need to go a bit softer, so I choose for B (i.e., Blackness).

 

The higher the number is on the B side of the scale, the darker the mark will be.

 

The higher the number on the H side of the scale, the lighter the mark will be.

 

WASHI

 

You get a great variety on Amazon.

I personally like something simple and minimalist, like this one:

          Black-and-white washi

(Pictures are clickable)

For those who want more colors, here is the option:

           Cheerful washi

It’s a matter of preference, I included some ideas below. 

 

          Black Pencil holder

I think it looks so stylish! There are different colors, but I’m obsessed with the black one 🤩

DON’T FORGET YOUR THREE FREE SESSIONS ON HOW TO SET GOALS

  • As someone who is into planning, I reflected on my 2019 and planned for 2020 already in November 😆🙈
⠀
Only on the 5th of January I sat down to transfer it all to my #journalforbusypeople though
⠀
But I did not.
⠀
Instead - I simplified it drastically based on three key principles:
⠀
x1: What does Tiana really want?
⠀
x2: What are the most important categories I want to develop myself in? (Reduced from 8 to 5)
⠀
x3: What are three important goals in each category? (Reduced from 5 or 7 to 3)
⠀
Wrote it down. Put it on my whiteboard. Now busy executing.
⠀
How are you getting on with your 2020 goals?
.⠀

  • Do you make promises for the next year?
⠀
My friend gave me an awesome idea: "Why don't we try to take things lighter in 2020?"
⠀
- Do you see fewer results than expected and get disappointed?
⠀
- Someone didn't call you back as promised?
⠀
- You manager / client didn't treat you properly?
⠀
Take it at least one degree lighter than you typically do. Take everything with humor and don't take yourself and your life too seriously.
⠀
HOW?
⠀
My friend has a great way of approaching it:
⠀
Imagine you are an observer. You're looking at your life from the outside. It's not really you who has a leading role, it's someone else. You're just watching.
⠀
Being detached allows you to still make sensible decisions without being too emotional or sensitive about what has happened.
⠀
Shall we try starting from today?

  • I get an incredible level of satisfaction when I cross out the tasks in my #journalforbusypeople Link in bio.
⠀
I only get such a sense of achievement when I take the time to plan my year and then one-by-one tick off the tasks as 'done'.
⠀
How many of you are planning your year ahead?

  • Only 19 days are left till 2020.
⠀
This is the time of the year when I reflect on what 2019 brought and plan for 2020.
⠀
In my Journal for Busy People I structure my goals and brainstorm on the direction I plan to take.
⠀
2019 was the first year when I wrote everything down. Before I was relying on my memory.
⠀
And you know what I discovered?
⠀
Having access to my thinking one year back though my journal helped me see what areas of my life need my attention. For me, it's Finance and Health.
⠀
It helped me see what type of goal setting doesn't work for me, where my priorities are and who Tiana is as a person.
⠀
I feel much more powerful and in control of my own life. I know where I am going and own my choices.
⠀
If for 2019 my motto was: "Create and elevate". For 2020, I've chosen: "Act intentionally".
⠀
To me, it means a lot of things:
⠀
- choose people I surround myself with intentionally;
- eat intentionally;
- spend money intentionally;
- react to what others do or say intentionally;
- love intentionally.
⠀
I consciously choose not to follow the crowd but stand by my own values and beliefs. I came to that realization predominantly with a help of journaling.
⠀
That's why I really encourage you to explore conscious goal setting and journaling.
⠀
One way to do it is with Journal for Busy People. It's my baby :) the product I created and 100% stand by. I thought I was self-aware. No not really. Just now I'm feeling that my life started moving in the right direction.
⠀
I invite you to take a look at the Journal on Amazon US. Check it out - link in bio -, and if you don't like it, I'm happy to give you a refund :)

  • 49 days till 2020. Sh"""t. I haven't achieved all my goals.
⠀
Familiar?
⠀
Not to me.
⠀
1st of January is just another day.
⠀
True. It's a nice excuse to structure your thoughts and take the moment to reflect.
⠀
But the reality is - you can start ANY DAY.
⠀
1st of January is just a continuation. It's not a pill that is going to sort things out.
⠀
Life goes on and is not measured from year to year but by steps that we take every day to enrich our lives with meaningful events and changes from within.
.⠀
.
.⠀
Do you agree?

  • Walking through picturesque windmills in Zaandam I'm realizing that life is not about strategy. It's not about working harder, posting more or constantly wishing for a better future.
⠀
It's about the present moment, and I'm lucky enough to be able to make those moments meaningful:
⠀
✨ I'm realizing that I'm working hard not because I have to but because it's boring otherwise.
⠀
✨ I'm writing my goals and vision in my #journalforbusypeople not because it's cool to set goals but because honestly - I LOVE IT!
⠀
✨ I'm practicing gratitude and saying what I truly feel because it makes my heart so full that it can explode.
.⠀

What would you do if you could do ANYTHING?
.⠀

.⠀
I've created a separate account for my Journal for Busy People. It's @busyjournal - if you were looking for a productivity journal, take a glimpse!
