A lot of people have emailed me lately, asking me whether they should have both weekly and daily spreads in their bujo, and how can they make them work without re-writing tasks and events? So today, I’ve decided to talk about this topic more analytically and explain how I use those type of spreads in my bullet journal.
Colour has always made me happy. I remember from a very young age that I loved to colour all the time. This carried on in my school years and University. I had to add colour on everything - my books, my bags, my notes, my room - you name it! Especially when I was studying, I had to colour code my notes and add lots of bright colours on all my notebooks. Even to this day, for some weird reason I can function better when my notes / to-do list is full of bright happy colours :)
The morning time is very important for me. I truly believe that the first few hours can really affect the way the rest of your day will unfold. So, for the last few years I have tried to incorporate some sort of routine, which would help me wake up and start my day in the best possible way. I want my body and my mind to be ready for all the things I’ve planned for that day.
Hello everyone to another monthly set up. I think that it must be the first time EVER that I won't say that the month just flew by. In fact, I felt that May was a very loooooong month....! It has been a very busy and emotionally charged month. With lots of new beginnings: new bullet journal, new work possibilities and a brand new website! It was also my birthday month, and that always makes May a very special month for me, with lots of lovely memories. However, this month I lost a very close family member and my heart was broken in pieces. It's things like this that come to wake you up and remind you of what's really important in life and to be grateful for every single day.
So, tomorrow June makes it's appearance and I'm all ready and set up in my bullet journal in order to make this one the best month ever! Let's get started.
Once again I'm excited to announce our Instagram Challenge for the month of June! It's the #doodlewithusinjune Instagram Challenge created by me and Alexandra (from @alexandra_plans).
It's going to be 30 days of doodles that will hopefully get you to be creative and have fun! The theme of June's prompts is 'Vacations'. I'm seriously in need of some vacations myself, so this theme is perfect!
Weekly spreads are one of the main components of my bullet journal. This type of spread is not part of the original bullet journal system that Ryder Caroll created. However, for me it’s one of the most useful ones.
There are people that think that weekly spreads are not important in their planning. If you think that such a spread is not suitable for you, then you can totally skip it. However, if you decide to give the weekly spreads a try, that’s great! There’s a million and one ways to create a weekly spread, and today I’ll show you the steps I take to create mine.
I love using colour in my bullet journal. Colourful pages makes me happy, put a smile on my face and funny enough help me focus more on the tasks I need to complete during the day. (weird, I know, but totally true!)
My regular tools that I like to use with my bujo, are my Pelikan coloured pencils and my Tombow markers. (Click here to see the list of all my favourite resources) However, I recently purchased a box of acrylic paint and I wanted to experiment with them in my bullet journal.
