February has absolutely flown by! Maybe it’s because January seemed so long? But since March is almost here, it obviously means a new bullet journal post! This month’s theme is succulents and although it’s not my favourite theme, I’m still quite happy with the minimalist approach I took to some of the spreads. It’s definitely not as colourful as my February bullet journal, it’s still a pretty theme. So, let’s get right into it!
So, as you can see, my cover page is quite busy. The writing I used, is inspiration I got from Amanda Rach Lee who is a huge inspiration for bullet journaling. She calls it confetti writing and she included it in a video of different header ideas. Clearly, I didn’t quite master it but I like how all the colours look together. The hanging plants are the show stealer for this page. My particular favourite is the one with the leaves hanging over the edge. That one appears quite a few times throughout this month’s spreads. The green also brings a nice change to the girly pinks and purples used in my past themes so far.
This is probably my favourite monthly spread so far this year in my bullet journal. It’s quite minimalistic but it’s clear and easy to look at. One thing that sets it apart is the colour key I’ve introduced. As you can see, I have 2 dates that at colour coded as “uni”. This reminds me that those 2 dates are deadlines for assignments. Then obviously on Mother’s Day (UK), is a cross colour-coded as “home.” For me, I think the notes section will be helpful as I can write in dates that need to be included for next month. You may also notice the “to-do” on the page beside it. The page had darl shadowing from the cover page. Shadowing is where you can see the outlines from the page before. So, I used this page to write my Sunday to-do list for the 1st March rather than have a page just dedicated to that day.
I’m so glad that I included this spread this month as I feel that visualising my habits will help me follow them. Again, I have included the hanging leaf plant and beneath the habit tracker, I’ve included a study tracker. In my February bullet journal, I included the tracker and seeing the hours visually, really made me work more. This month, I’ve also added a bit for total so I’ll know exactly how long I’ll have spent studying that month. University is really important for me so I want to put the effort in to come out with the best grade I can possibly get.
As you can see, this month I’ve gone with half a page dedicated to my dreams. This is because I don’t dream frequently enough to fill a full page. Half a page should be perfectly adequate. I also incorporated my quote onto this spread as I couldn’t think of a fitting quote for March. Instead, I found a quote relating to dreams. It’s a little hard to read but it says “a deep night’s sleep is a soulful voyage between today and tomorrow.” My calligraphy on this is a thing I’m particularly proud of and I like the little gold dots for decoration. There’s also some leaves scattering around the quote to tie it in nicely with the theme.
Like last month, this is quite a fun mood tracker. It was fun to find so many varieties of plants to draw and I’m excited to start colouring them in. Before I start the mood tracker, I may add colour to the plant pots. I feel like it’d be a little more colourful rather than the only splash of colour being green. You may also notice that the plants get smaller as they get down the page. This is because I thought I wouldn’t fit 31 plants onto one page. Looking at it now however, I think I would have been just fine. I actually have several favourites on this page and the hanging one isn’t included on this list! My particular favourites are 10, 20 and 22!
My weekly spreads have took on a minimalist approach this month. For me, I prefer that take as it’s easier to visualise when it’s all laid out plainly. These boxes are big enough to write down my to-do lists for each day. Again, the hanging plant is presented and a few falling leaves pull in the theme. I may also add a little box on either side of the Sunday box. This is so I can add little notes for jobs that I don’t have a particular day for. For example, tidying my room will be something I want to do that week but not a particular day. It’s there to remind me to do it anytime I’m free.
If I’m being completely honest, I almost didn’t have a favourites spread this month! But, I looked over my February favourites and it’s helped me decide the products to talk about in my February favourites post. This spread is particularly helpful, especially in terms of blogging. The reason I almost didn’t include it is because I often forget to fill it in throughout the month. During February, I was flipping through my spreads and suddenly remembered it was there so started to fill it in. If I hear a new song, I don’t automatically think to add it to my journal but I’m definitely going to try and improve this month!
That’s it for my bullet journal this month! If you have one, what’s your theme for the month?
