Welcome to Life is Messy and Brilliant! I started my blog as a way to share my love for bullet journaling, hand lettering, and digital planning. My dream is for every woman to be able to find inspiration, confidence, and an organizational solution that fits her unique personality and lifestyle. ♡

Hi! I’m Jenniffer

I’m the creative blogger + digital artist behind Life is Messy and Brilliant. I started my blog in 2017 when I was in my senior of college. I was studying Biomedical Sciences but part of me was craving art.

A quote I live by every day: “The mirror is my only competition”

Stay Tuned! ♡

I became fascinated by the world of bullet journaling while looking for ways to balance my job and college classes. I LOVED the idea of creating my own spreads on any notebook. I put together a couple of blog posts you are going to find helpful and interesting.
