Happy Friday dolls!
What a week it has been! Literally super stressful which is ironic because I’m trying to reduce my stress, but parenthood can do that to you I guess. Anyway, I’m here to show you my August bullet journal, it IS pineapple themed! And in case you were wondering, I do like pineapple on my pizza. #pineapplepizzaisthebestpizza
So many things went wrong in July including a few mistakes on my bullet journal which I point out in my video, but keep scrolling to see the photos too:
Cover Page & Quote
This time I did it in reverse, cover page first and quote after. It was only because of this giant pineapple that I decided to do it in that order. And I think it looks quite good with the month written across it. I had actually wrote “July” on it, so that was one of my HUGE mistakes, I ended up having to cut a piece of paper out of the end of my bujo, and placed it over the original one with the actual month…August.. LOL
The quote I chose was obviously pineapple themed as well: “A pineapple has pointy defenses, but it’s still sweet. Be a pineapple.” I decided to do pineapple doodles for the rest of the spreads to keep the theme running throughout because I didn’t want to draw pineapples like the first one over and over, it would have been too time consuming.
My calendar spread is different in the sense that the lines are just a colored marker rather than my usual black Faber Castell pen. It looks cleaner, more subtle and overall nicer in my opinion. Perhaps I need to get a thinner pen so it doesn’t look as thick.
I went back to my notes box because I didn’t use my priority box as much last month, so I may go back and forth depending on how much stuff I need to do each month.
IG Planner & Habits Trackers
I had a Summer Bucket List last month, and to change it up I’m trying out an IG planner, since I’m doing something similar to this already elsewhere. I thought including it in my BuJo would make things simpler for me. We’ll see how this works out.
My habit trackers are the same. My brush pen was getting dried or something because I ended up having to switch to a regular black marker, and when I tried to use the white gel pen right over it, it sucked up the pigment and it ended up looking a bit grey. May have to buy another one just in case.
Fitness & Health
These pages are more or less the same each month. The only thing different about this one is the change in the right page. I’m not including the 30 day challenges I was doing the past two months. I explain more why on my video, I may address that another time here.
But anyway, I replaced my challenges with only one, which is the #100GluteChallenge which is a new challenge from Blogilates. I will be participating and the challenge actually starts this weekend on the 4th and ends September 2nd. So it should be exciting and I cannot wait to do my first challenge along with Cassey as it comes out. I will also be trying to do different exercises each day which will range from PIIT, HIIT, yoga, and Pop Pilates.
Lastly, my weekly spread. Super simple. Just some pineapples on the sides and some open space to write my goals/agenda on each section for each day of the week.
So far these layouts have been really nice for me, I think I like layouts that have NO boxes at all, but sometimes it’s nice and it goes with the theme, so I will be going back and forth with those.
That’s it you guys, my August bujo! I love how it looks, still pretty summery, colorful, and bright! Next month might be tricky because it’s back to school/end of summer/autumn season so I may have to come up with a theme that includes all of that or something. I don’t know. We’ll see.
How are you guys doing today and what are your plans for the day?
