Plan With Me: August Bullet Journal | WITHWENDY

Hey everyone it’s me Wendy today’s video is just an August Bullet journal planning with me video there has been a lot of requests since my last bullet journal video to do a plan with me This one is very straightforward and simple. I tried to keep it Consolidated in a way, so that it wouldn’t go too far in depth But obviously if you guys want to see more (stumbles) more bullet journal stuff I can put that ah I can put that together for you, so I have my journal here It’s still the moleskine what else oh I want to show you guys something dan installed ok wait the can you see do you see this light ok? He has gotten Hue light bulbs Which is kind of cool, but yeah like this imitates um This is closer to day light I guess and then Beyond those pink We’re not sponsored. This is just our life. At night if you make it blue Feels like we’re in an aquarium alright enough of the lights we’re going to get right into this bullet journal so I’m sticking with this moleskine that I’ve used in previous videos and still using my stabilo pens and also my zebra Mild liners with the monthly spread I like to start out with putting out obviously the name of the month and this month maybe I’m going through a bit of Downsizing or simplicity type of things, so I’m not going to go crazy on the fonts with you guys But there have been comments that people appreciate that because it’s not too chaotic The first thing I like to do for the month is to outline the specific dates I have and the type of goals that I want to set up for each one It helps me to be a lot more motivated towards every single day and the things I want to be Accomplishing and so I put out the goals I go backwards writing up the numbers so I know how far they can start and Then underneath that I add the day of the week just to help me remember which day lands on Sundays ETC underneath the goals heading is where I like to write out every single individual goal, and a lot of these are carried over from Previous months whichever ones, I really feel like I want to keep working on. I’ll put them here whichever ones I feel like I did a good job Bringing them into my regular schedule, so I don’t really have to set them as goals I’ll keep those out and then I also will try to think about other things that I’m working on or want to improve on So this part is a bit reflective nice to do this when it’s quiet. You’re calm, and you can just visualize realistically what you want to achieve this month after I write each of the goals I like to go in and write the number of days where I would like to Accomplish each of these goals that way it’s easy for me to put down some goals that are big But you only need to touch them a few times a month and some goals that are really small And you want to get them done every single day when I first introduced the numbering system I felt like it was still a bit unclear how exactly to pace myself to reach those numbers, so the new system I’ve devised here is I draw Circles on all the days where I would like to aim to get it done the number of circles should add up to the total Number that, I had to not call them whenever I successfully accomplish the task on the given day I’ll color in the circle, but if I do it on a date, but there was no circle drawn I’ll still color in whatever’s there and then at the end I can tally it up And it’s easier to get a sense of whether I’ve been on track or really falling behind going horizontally? There’s always a couple of major events. I want to keep in mind for the month things like birthdays trips Times where I’ll be away, or big events that I have going on I’ll put all of those right here, so I can see them as they’re coming and now for the core of Bullet journaling which is truly just Listing out all of the things that you want done hence the name bullet before I get into that I did highlight every second week pink on my calendar. I’ll explain why I did that in a moment It just helps me to organize my tasks this part also takes a bit of thinking and reflecting I may go back to see what has not been accomplished from previous months and then carry over items here plus add on the new things that have to get done this month this list actually is used Dynamically throughout the entire month whenever I encounter a new task I try to add it here so that I can keep it in mind and on the right side I like list out the people that I’m looking forward to talking to this month all of this really just helps to keep me accountable Because sometimes a whole month can go by you had your head down working And you totally forget the people and connections you really want it to reach out to and those kind of relationships are important Underneath that I’d like to list out all the videos that I have just so that when I finish them I can check them off And feel really satisfied This also gives me an opportunity if I want to add some numbers on how they’re doing and different updates I can put it all in one place and look at it over The course of the month if I had a bit more time. I could make my to-do list a lot longer so for now We’ll leave it like that and I’ll just go through a couple more of my Constant Bullet journal tools that I’m sticking to I’m still using these sticker sets that I’ve shown from before this one’s from Bando It’s got a lot of really cute designs. This one is from a company called Take good care every time you order Korean skincare from them they send you another pack of stickers So I actually have a lot cuz I’ve ordered a couple Later this month. I will be uploading some wedding skincare stuff and it’s going to be featuring a couple of their products not sponsored but Just they send cute stickers, and I appreciate that they’ve come in handy quite a few times And that dog is actually a dog but the owners own so cute. What else is there? Oh, yes, we also have to fill in our wedding thank-you cards here. I’ll show them to you They’re right over here our whole entire wedding stationery set was sourced from etsy And these ones in particular come from revel and wild Our Thank-you cards are like this with love and thanks from Wendy and Daniel and then on the back side it’s just got a couple of lines really easy to work with the card stock is so thick we absolutely loved it and What we did was we wrote thank-you cards to every single one of our guests Then put them all inside these envelopes and wrote their names onto the Envelopes with a seal so that it served as a place card when they came to sit down and on all of them we wrote personalized messages about why we were thankful to have them in our life and to have them at our wedding it was a serious Marathon to finish all of those before the wedding But it was so good to have that deadline coming because we got it done They designed our entire suite, so this is the invitation in case you haven’t seen it yet. I Like I love it so much So I’m so happy with it. The flowers match the type of Decor we had at our wedding They all came in these yellow envelopes with the Golden seal at the bottom which we designed It’s a W and a D kind of interlocked together We jokingly said we would have the seal for life, but I honestly do not know what else we will be sealing Maybe we will just seek out Whatever opportunity we have to seal them so when you got the invite you would open it up this one Never got mailed so that’s why I’m using it as a demo like not in a hard feelings type of way I just happen to have it so I want to show you I’m sorry if the way I ripped this envelope is bothering you. I tried my best. So here it is you pull out the invitation They accommodated all of our text, and then we had a line where we wrote down How many seats had been reserved for them and a line where we had a password for them so that we would know? When they RSVP’d who they were affiliated with and where they came from and yeah I was also kind of a security measure in case For some odd reason someone got hold of our wedding website we would know that they were not RSVP-ing Randomly for those of you who know who the story girls are which hopefully is all of you because they are amazing Canadian DIY-ers This is a teaser on what I’m doing with them interpret as you please Is something else exciting this month? I’m going to be trying my hand at crochet I’m nervous But we’re going to give it a shot Wool and the Gang is a company that specializes in crochet and crochet products that are really cute, so they sent me these shoes to give a shot, so I’m going to be trying out some crochet I’m nervous, but I’m hoping for the best and the last thing I want to talk about is that you may notice There’s quite a few lines called so boss that’s actually a new video series that I have through partnership with
Makeful and CBC Life the first episode is out and It just came out this week, and I’m really excited because that was the last big project I worked on leading up to the wedding for a long time. I couldn’t really talk about it, but now it’s finally airing and It was so nice to work with professional production company. I’m really excited Lastly I’m gonna cover what that whole pink highlighting week thing was about This is something I introduced to help me section out when I have a massive to-do list so that to do is flexible to grow as long as it needs all the way down the page But some of them are things that I really want to get done earlier in the month some of them are things that I want to get done later in the month and When I looked at the whole to-do list I was just this one big block of text It was hard for my eyes to really pay attention and notice the things that needed to get done Urgently the highlighting system that I have over on the long end matches these circles that I’m adding over here to remind myself Which disease to do I would like to do week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4 ETC Thank you all so much for watching this monthly plan with me I know it’s a lot more on the simpler end of what is available on YouTube for planning with me But I’m at the point where I really want my bullet journal to be straightforward and functional So I hope if you’re brand new to bullet journaling. It’s not too intimidating and I will see you guys next time. Thanks for watching Bye

  1. woaahahh I am so early!!! And I loove this video, I've just started bujo! 🙂
    hopefully it'll help me for school time

  2. Can you give more info about those lights? Is it a specific brand or what should I search for to find some like that?

  3. would be rly nice if you could zoom in next time you do this video !! its kinda hard to see what you're writing 😬

  4. Your invites are so gorgeous.

    Would you be interested in doing a house/apartment tour? I know when I got married it was a [fun] challenge to incorporate both of our stuff into one space. It would be cool to see how you guys did that as well.


  5. I get so excited when you upload new videos! Ahh!! And I can't get over how beautiful your wedding invitations are! <3

  6. I was scared of crocheting at first but now I love it 😀 recently I made a blanket for my friend and gave it to her as a birthday gift. I followed Jonna Martinez tutorial – her channel is great for ctocheting beginners. It took me 3 weeks to make it. I started sewing recently as well and your tutorials are the best! thank you for all of them because they are really helpful xoxo

  7. Thank you for this! I'm still narrowing down how I want my bullet journal to work and your videos are always helpful. Also good luck with crochet. I do it and love it.

  8. This simple spread makes me feel a lot better about how straight forward mine is. Do you still put your prayers and gratitude in your bullet journal or have you purchased a separate notebook for them?

  9. Hey Wendy , I would like to suggest a bigger project to you , you're my favorite youtuber I love your way of editing and filming so I wanted to ask you if you could make a dress inspired by beyonces Roberto cavalli yellow lemonade dress , and in that video you could try and teach us how to pleat thinner fabrics like chiffon , that would be sooooo dope

  10. hello, i wanted to help with translating your videos but i cant really time the youtube subs aa would that be helpful if i would just write the translations down?

  11. thanks for the short and sweet approach! I find a lot of the bullet journal videos on youtube now are just too elaborate that they seem to favour form over function, so thanks for a refreshing video!

  12. Crochet will be so easy for you! You are so creative! No problem, I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Congrats & take care

  13. Crochet was the very first thing that I learned (in the world of sewing and stuff like that)! My grandmother taught me when I was a kid. You'll be fine, you just need to practice a little bit and then it gets very mechanical. And when you want to level up, the internet has everything! It's great how many different uses you'll have for it!

  14. your skin is glowing!! ive been wondering what it has been about ur new videos lately, but it might be your skincare! keep up the good wwork!!

  15. Crochet is so fun! I'm actually crocheting a sweater as I watch this video 🙂 if you haven't started yet, you're gonna love it.

  16. O.M.G. I particularly asked TheSorryGirls about possible future Collabs with you because that is my dream and they also did Wedding DIYs recently AND I AM SO EXCITED a dream come true I have been following you both FOR YEARS

  17. This is beautiful. Please do monthly plan with me's ! This was so nice and relaxing. I love your work, Wendy. Thank you for the upload. Looking forward to the next video!!

  18. yes!! i just started bullet journaling so i could be more productive and efficient this semester. Hopefully i stick with it 😊

  19. ahhh i really enjoy this!!! i feel like a lot of things could be super applicable to me, and your systems are very very helpful. i may or may not start my own bullet journal because of this, but we shall seeee

  20. good luck with the crochet! it's really easy once you get the hang of it and super relaxing. i would just recommend that you do just a few basic practice squares first to get your stitches and tension regular before you start the project but you probably already know this!

  21. Don't worry about crochet. I had to learn it at 6th grade and if 6 graders can do it, you definitely can.😊

  22. hi Wendy! always love your content! just thought I would let you know your audio sounds different in this video! xoxo

  23. My boyfriend installed hue lights all over our apartment! I love them so much. I have them set to gently wake me up in the morning. So nice! Love your videos! You always inspire me.

  24. Well this kinda sucked but only because we can't see what you're doing. zone in next please.. I didn't even bother to watch it all cause you can't really see..

  25. I am SOO happy to hear that you are starting to crochet. That is literally mu number one hobby and I love it SO much.

  26. i'm starting college in august! i've never really given much thought to bullet journaling bc i've never had a need for it but i think i might start one when i'm a full time college student!

  27. Came for the journaling, craft/adjust/patch/modify garments on the side, but mostly stay for the journaling (but only b/c your sewing is leet!). #feedback

  28. one of my favorite things about your bullet journaling videos is that you explain how you tailor your journal specifically to what you need. as someone kind of intimidated to start bullet journaling (but desperately wanting to), i think your videos are the perfect place to start, and definitely inspire me. 💕💕💕

  29. Wow! I'm a new subscriber and love your wedding invitations!! Love the floral theme!! Also I love bullet journaling!! Hope you subscribe to my channel!! 😃😃😃😃

  30. I appreciate simple and straightforward – I don't think over embellishments are for everyone. It's nice to see other styles!

  31. I have a question, the size of the squares in a dotted notebook are different like in the normal notebooks I mean it come in two different sizes ? Because I would not like to write in a notebook with tiny squares the ones that is used in calligraphy and i don't wanna mess it up buying a notebook and is not in the right size. I hope someone can answer.

  32. Crochet is really easy when you get the hang of it, usually everyone struggles with where to put all the string and how to keep tension but if you get that you'll do great

  33. YAS welcome to the crochet community! If you like it, please try amigurumi! It's actually simpler than crocheting clothes, in my opinion, and you get to create stuffed animals!

  34. I love your bullet journal! I did a galaxy theme for my bujo this month ✨ I shared it in a plan with me as well!

  35. I loved it! We don't need to know all your business so it's ok if it wasn't zoomed in. You were giving us ideas. Thank you!

  36. I got engaged in sewing and making leather projects from your videos ! I think ur channel is really helpful I wish I could have a great channel like yours !

  37. I just watched your video at random and I really enjoyed it. Glad to hear that you will be trying crochet! I've been a crocheter for years. It's not nearly as popular as knitting these days and that's too bad. Your invitations are beautiful!

  38. crocheting is so easy and fun! don't be nervous! it takes a bit of practice (as does anything really) but once you get the hang of it, it becomes almost second nature. Good luck!

  39. Love Wool and the Gang. Their kits and yarn are so amazing. I hope you enjoy learning crochet. It's been a great hobby for me since I was 12.

  40. could you let us know what package of hue lights you guys bought? i would love to have my room all pink like that! 😊

  41. Hi Wendy. I'm quickly becoming a fan of yours. I AM new to bujo and laying out my first spreads. I greatly appreciate your videos and style. They're smart, straightforward, articulate, helpful, and cheerful. I've stumbled upon a few of your bujo videos while doing r&d… but I'm looking forward to exploring your channel & other [primary {sewing} endeavors]. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to produce these videos, mahalos!

  42. Hi, Wendy! Thank you for your planning videos. I am hoping to start a bullet journal and was looking for inspiration on how to keep it simple and approachable. Yours seem to have just the balance I am looking for.
    In your first bujo video you mentioned that you had a prayer journal as one of your 3 separate books in 2016, but had consolidated all 3 into 1 book. I have looked some, but haven't been able to find how you got the prayer journal part into the bujo. Could you explain that? I am hoping to find some ideas for including my prayer journaling into my bujo. Thanks!!

  43. I would love to see another video on bullet journal stuff. You have such a peaceful approach to getting organized. At least that's how I feel when I watched your videos. Thanks for sharing! Hope you are well. ☺️
