What’s in my Bullet Journal – August Monthly Layout

Last Christmas, Santa brought me a bullet journal. I had been researching bullet journal layouts and ideas all throughout Pinterest so I thought as soon as I received mine I would know exactly what to do – I was WRONG. I tried to customize my bullet journal right after I received it however I was just not that into it so I left it alone for a while (sorry Mom! ..I mean.. Santa?). Just recently I started watching videos and searching Pinterest again for bullet journal ideas and this time I just decided that I was going to go for it. I was going to try it out and put my own flair and creativity into my bullet journal and that is just what I did.

Here is a closeup of my August layout

I decided to go for a simple monthly layout that I saw on Pinterest.  I like it because I can see the whole month ahead and I also have space for a habit tracker (I am OBSESSED with the habit tracker idea by the way!). One of the things I noticed when I was looking into bullet journal ideas was how truly creative you can be with your journal and that you can use pretty much anything to make it unique to YOU. I have been into watercolors recently so I decided to paint certain areas with watercolor on my layout. I was SO IMPRESSED with how well the pages held up under the water colors & I am so happy with the final result.apsp-pin-image

One of my favorite things about bullet journals is that there are no rules. You can customize them however you want to suit you. I am so excited that I came back to my bullet journal and all the possibilities that it offers. Do y’all journal or have a bullet journal? What are your go to layouts? I would love to see!

    Love the design of your bullet journal! It’s so simple and elegant. I obsess over keeping mine really colorful, but this is a good reminder that sometimes less is more!

    I have never heard of a bullet journal before reading this. What do people use them for? Drawing? It seems like a cool thing looking at yours. I’ve never been very artistic maybe that’s why I never saw one before lol!
