June Report

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

Subscribers all got a bonus box as a thank you from us, to celebrate our second birthday. Last month the curated subscription was Field Notes themed, including Limited Editions.

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

What is the Bullet Journal? #BuJo if you’re hip.  Bullet journalling is a system of journalling devised and publicised by a fellow called Ryder Carrol. You can see his story here There’s even a companion app now!  Whatever you may have seen or heard, #BuJo is a simple and straightforward way of managing a journal.

Notebooks for Weight loss

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

I suppose that you could pile them up to form a step, or perhaps use them as dumb-bells. I used notebooks for weight loss in a different way.  How I used notebooks for weight loss Contrary to what many say, losing weight is not terribly complicated for most of us. There are, of course, exceptions and nothing in this post constitutes medical advice. I am overweight. I have been for years.
