Resources

This is a list of tools, websites and programs I use and recommend for your bullet journal experience and for building and optimising your blog. I only recommend products that I use and love!


BULLET JOURNALING

NOTEBOOKS

LEUCHTTURM1917 - This is the notebook I'm using for my main bullet journal. I'm current at the second one and I really like it. I use an A5 dotted orange one.

MOLESKINE - This one I use it for my business bullet journal. I love the way the pens glide on the pages. It's not good for fountain pens or for markers, but for my business is exactly what I need.

WILLIAM HANNAH - This is my personal bullet journal. The quality is amazing and I love writing in it.

 

PENS

FABER-CASTELL ECCO PIGMENT - I love these pens! The black is vibrant and you can create really fine lines. Perfect for my every day writing and my doodling ;)

STAEDTLER TRIPLUS FINELINERS - These I feel have become a must in the bullet journal community. They are very, very good. With a fine tip of 0.3 and very little ghosting they are perfect for adding colour to your bullet journal on an everyday basis.

 

COLOURED PENCILS  

PELICAN SOFT COLOURED PENCILS - They come in a tin case with 24 bright and vivid colours that draw like a dream. They are nice and soft and make shading effortless.

 

MARKERS

TOMBOW DUAL BRUSH MARKERS - I use these markers every single day! I love how the add vivid colour to all my doodles and they blend nicely. I usually choose more pastel colours for my weekly spreads.

ZEBRA MILDLINER HIGHLIGHTERS - These are by far my favourite highlighters! They have really nice colours, write softly on the pages and are double sided with a broad and a fine tip. You can find them on this website with free worldwide shipping. Use the code christina77star to get a 10% discount as well!

BLOGGING

BLOG PLATFORMS

 

BLOGGER - Free hosted blogging platform owned by Google. I've been using it for year. It's easy, adjustable and free.

SQUARESPACE - One of the best platforms to create amazing websites. It’s simple with lots of great features and I’m really happy since I’ve moved my website with them.

 

DOMAIN PROVIDERS

123-REG - Easy to use domain provider. You can find domains for any type of business and for any country you want.

 

WEBSITE TEMPLATE

ETSY - You can find beautiful website templates at low cost. Mine is called 'White'. You can even ask for custom designed themes from the designer you want.

 

TOOLS FOR GRAPHIC DESIGN

ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD - This is the Photo and Image editing software that I use for my blog photos and I literally can't live without! Creative Cloud gives you the entire collection of creative tools for your desktop, like Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Premier Pro.
CANVA - An online graphic design tool, great for creating graphics for social media - especially for Pinterest.
PICMONKEY - Anogher useful tool for creating visual content for your blog and for editing your pictures - I use it mostly when I'm creating a collage of various pictures.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

HOOTSUITE - This social media tool helps me plan, organise and schedule  my day to day social media interactions on Twitter and Facebook.
BUFFER - I use this one only to plan and schedule my Instagram posts.

 

BLOG MONETIZATION

GENI.US - One of the best programs I've tried. It is a link management platform that lets you convert any Amazon link into a universal link, which detects where a visitor is from, and then forwards them to their own national Amazon store - with your affiliate link included - GENIUS! (excuse the pun)  It also works with iTunes.
PAYONEER - It lets me access the commission I make on Amazon.com by transferring it to my bank account. Another excellent service.

 

ONLINE STORAGE

DROPBOX - Online storage solution that automatically syncs with your computer (free up to 2GB). I'm using it to share all my free downloads in the Resources Library with you :)

 

IMAGES

SNAPSEED - This is the application I use to edit my images for instagram.
UNSPLASH - Great website for free high-resolution photos.

 

FONTS / GRAPHICS / TEMPLATES

CREATIVE MARKET - My favourite place to be online! You can find some amazing fonts, and bundles of fonts and graphics for some unbelievably low prices. Plus every Monday you get 6 Free Goods!
THE HUNGRY JPEG - Another similar site with lots of fonts, graphics, templates etc. They offer one Weekly Free Good.
