February Bullet Journal Spreads

Posted March 3, 2017 by Nereyda/ 30 Comments

 I haven’t done a bullet journal post in a while, but I still use it every day (except for when I was really sick). I’ve been wanting to show a full month in my journal so I thought now would be the perfect time to show you my layout for February. I usually use more pages for a month but I’m nearing the end of my current journal and I’m trying to make sure I have enough pages until I get my next journal so I’ve been condensing a few pages. I’ve also been simplifying my layouts a lot and when I start my next journal, I want it more minimalist, with a lot of gray and black and a few accents of color here and there.

 

(apologies for the light teal color, it looks great on paper but not good on camera)
I love this monthly bullet journal layout and decided to add two rows for this month, one for personal stuff and events like birthdays, appointments and bills due and another one for blog stuff. I really liked this layout and copied it for my March monthly overview. For the next page, I added a tracker for the books I read in February. I filled out the books with the title and colored them in as I finished them, although I just realized I forgot to fill in the last few. I saw a layout for this type of tracker on Pinterest and wanted to try it to track things like when I did a blog post, when I worked out, when I read, when I washed my face at night and my mood for the day. I have a key for my moods on the bottom of the left page. I liked this layout okay, the book boxes were a bit small and although I love the way the mini calendars look, my usual habit tracker is much faster to do.

 

I normally do a horizontal layout for my sleep and habit tracker but wanted to try out this new vertical layout for both and I really liked it. As you can see, I started my tracking in the middle of the month because I was really sick in the beginning of the month (sick most of the month but it was worst the first few weeks) and I didn’t bother to track anything. I kept with the pink and teal color scheme and I also tried out watercolors on the left page but made the mistake of trying to erase pencils marks (below the watercolors) which made it smear. Oh well.

 This is my first official weekly layout for February since I didn’t use my journal in the first few weeks.  As you can see, my weekly layout on the left is much more simple than what I used to do and I love it. On the right, I combined my meal tracker, water intake and workouts for the week on one page. Since you can’t see the teal color that well on camera, I simply draw a water drop in each square for each glass of water I drink that day.  As you can see, I’m terrible at drinking water, I hate water and I hate having to pee every 5 minutes when I do drink water. But that is something I am constantly trying to get better. This was the week I started feeling a little bit better so I eased in the workouts in the middle of the month by doing pilates and yoga.


 This is my last official page for February, since the month ends on a Tuesday, I added the last week to my March weekly layout. This was when I got my new fountain pen and all I wanted to do was write with it so I kind of ignored my color scheme and just used the pink ink. I also wanted to practice my cursive so I’ve been writing in cursive a lot, it’s gotten better since this. I changed my weekly layout to match the page on the right…and I wasn’t a fan. The spaces were so small, it was hard to fit stuff in. I didn’t even want to write in what I would normally write in because I knew I wouldn’t have space. On the right, I kept the meal, water, workout tracker but changed the meal tracking section a bit. I added 4 rows instead of 3 squares. I have a B, L, D, S on each line to track my breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for the day.

***
As you can see, sometimes a layout doesn’t work for me but that’s part of what I like about bullet journaling. I can try new layouts (cause I get bored easily) and keep what I like, improve on things I liked but need a few tweaks and move on from layouts I don’t like. As of right now, my current journal will last me 7 or 8 months. I’m waiting on the silver limited edition journal to come out and as soon as it does, that baby is mine. I’m really excited to start my next journal but I love my first journal. Even with all of my mistakes.

  • So pretty!!I love how cute some of the layouts are – especially the book one 🙂

    • Thanks, I love putting together new layouts. It’s so destressing for me.

  • I love it, Nereyda! I wish I was as creative as you are but I’m just not. I’ve tried tracking things in my bullet journal – happy planner mash up but the bullet journal never gets updated while the happy planner is always up to date so I think I’m going to throw in the towel on my bullet journal and just go back to admiring yours. I track stuff in my happy planner so I’m happy with that.

    Still, I love seeing pictures of yours and February looks awesome! Keep up the good work!

    • It’s not for everyone, just how planners just aren’t for me. I’ve also seen people add trackers and bujo layouts in their happy planners so that may work for you.

  • I love your layouts – definitely going to steal some of these of my own bullet journal lol. I Particularly liked the first picture – with your month all wrapped up (books read/habit tracker and day to day stuff). The colours are really pretty too. Definitely in awe of your creativity!

    • Steal away! I love finding inspiration in other bujo layouts 🙂

  • These layouts are awesome! The habit tracker and sleep tracker are so cool. To be honest, I didn’t see the watercolor smudge at all. 😀 I love the idea of the water drop for a glass of water! A few years ago I realized that I wasn’t drinking enough water (that sounds mundane but the realization came in a rather startling way) so I’ve been forcing myself to drink more water in the past few years. It’d probably be a good idea to actually calculate how much I’m drinking and should be drinking… you have me thinking now. 😀

    Wonderful post, Nereyda! Have a lovely weekend. =)

    • I used to be really anal about messing up or the possibility of messing up but now I don’t even care anymore because other people rarely notice so I decided I won’t either.
      Ugh, why is water so flavorless? And why must it make me go pee so much? If I didn’t have such a weak bladder I would drink more but I literally have to plan my outings around pee breaks haha.
      I really do need to drink more water though.
      And you don’t need a specific journal to track these things, you an track them in any notebook or planner 🙂

    I love your layouts! They are so unique and so colorful! I made all of my layouts the same for each month this year and it is working so well for me! I wonder if I’ll try something new next year.

    • Oh wow, I get bored easily so I like to switch it up every few months but I know everyone else has their different bujo style 🙂

  • Every time I read about your bullet journal experience, I want to start myself. But sadly I don’t have time to add it to my billion hobbies, and work. BUT I WILL STEAL YOURS! Or at least make all the layouts for me and I’ll fill them in haha.

    • I’ve gone much more simple now in my journal so it takes me about 10 minutes to set up a whole month and it helps me be more productive and organized.

  • This is awesome, Nereyda! I actually love the habit tracker one but I am just too lazy to BuJo!

    I started one last year but basically only did 1 month. I also realized that I really didn’t have anything to write daily… hahaha

    • I’ve been going a lot simpler now with my spreads and it’s so much easier. It takes me 5-10 minites tops to set up my pages/trackers for the month now.

      • Cool! I wish I were not this lazy! 🙂 also, I feel like I don’t have anything to write on the dailies?

  • I love how you have a colour scheme to yours. Mine changes constantly as I get bored and don’t have pens to hand. Although, the past couple of weeks I have been terrible at keeping up with my bullet journal and I feel bad. It helps me remember things but often when I have free time to sit down and probably log stuff I’m just too tired. I don’t include meals in mine currently because I worry about the sheer amount of food I eat would make me feel bad. I am thinking of including it though because I do snack way too much and when I track things I tend to try and do something about it.

    • Mine changes every month too but I want to focus on one color scheme. I finally settled on the deep pink, black and my gray mildliner. It’s minimalist but not boring because of the pop of color.

  • You have awesome bullett journals, Nereyda! I would love get one soon, do I can get more organized. Lol! 😊

  • I recently started planning on a weekly basis and it gives me life! Love the pink and teal theme that you’ve got going. Thanks for sharing your spreads with us!

    • I love planning my week and my meals, or else my week feels like it’s all out of whack.

  • What kind of pens do you use Nereyda? I’ve been doing a weekly tracker since mine is still mostly related to my blogging, but I love browsing pinterest as well for inspiration!

  • I’ve been pretty good with my journal so far. Though, mine isn’t nearly as creative as yours. 😀 I’m all about lists and shit these days.

  • Oooh, I think a minimalist bullet journal with a muted colour palette would be really pretty! The vertical layouts for your sleep tracking look good, too. Your spatial reasoning is actually amazing, I have no idea how you plan these things out! Hahaha.

    • Yes, I’ve been trying to find a color scheme I like that is minimalist but not boring. I settled on my black pen, my pink ink/fountain pen and a gray mildliner. I love it.

  • So pretty…I still haven’t started one yet…I did buy a planner and some nice pens but…I don’t even have time to start it! lol

    • My layouts get simpler and simpler which each month and I love it more 🙂

  • I like the idea of dividing the month in two, I might try it for my next layout. You are so good at tracking everything and at exercise.
