PLAN WITH ME: February Bullet Journal + January Flip-Through

PLAN WITH ME: February Bullet Journal + January Flip-Through


– Hey! What is up everybody? It is time for another
monthly bullet journal video. Are you excited? This is like my favorite
time of the month, because it’s just so nice and relaxing to just like sit down for like an hour and just draw and kind of zone out. And I feel like to a lot
of people who think that bullet journaling takes
up way too much time, because yeah to make your monthly spread does take a little while, but you only do it once every month just to set up your
month and then that’s it. That’s all you have to do. Aside from like filling it out every day. But, it’s just kind of a
meditative experience for me. Anyways, let’s blue skidoo
into this book here. So, I’m just going to do a
quick flip-through of January, show you guys how that
all worked out for me, show it all filled out and finished. I really love the way
that this calendar looked. I think it’s very clean, very sleek, but also kind of fun and
crazy at the same time. Definitely going to use the
same calendar for February. My mood tracker was really fun. I loved the hot cocoa thing. It was really cozy, really cute. Though in retrospect, I
don’t know if I would have used the color red because
it just looks kind of creepy. And my habit tracker
is now my new favorite habit tracker that I have ever made. I don’t know why, it’s just
something is so satisfying about coloring all of these
little boxes, I love it. My expenses page is the
same as it is every month. Very boring, literally
have nothing exciting to say about this page. This is my hey, stop spending money page. See how well that’s working for me. It’s not going super well. This page ended up being
a little bit pointless. It’s a very small area for notes. There wasn’t really
much I could do with it. The coloring book page was
nice, it was kind of relaxing to just sit and color
whenever I felt like it. But not very practical; I’m not sure if I’m gonna keep this
for my February spread. And then these are my
weeks, all filled out. And as you can see, I
definitely do not stay within the guidelines
of these little boxes, because sometimes you just have too much shit to do in one day. And people are always like, “Ah, I couldn’t do a bullet journal, because I wouldn’t wanna
like write outside the lines, or like scribble or mess up.” But you can literally
scribble all over it. It’s fine, it’s not gonna ruin anything. It still functions as a planner. I dunno, I just scribble all over all the borders, everywhere. I just can’t live my life
in these tiny little boxes. Anyways, let’s move on to February! For February, I am making a cover page. I didn’t make one for January,
but I’m making one now. And the theme that you guys really wanted, like really, you guys really wanted this, I was shocked: Valentines Day. Everyone wants Valentines
Day, and flowers and candy. So I’m gonna kinda do that, but not like super in-your-face Valentines Day, because personally, I just think it’s a really dumb holiday, but I’m doin’ it for you, tsk. But I’m mostly just gonna
do lots of flowers and roses and pinks and reds, and I
think it’s gonna be so pretty. For my mood tracker, I’m going back to the standard, circular
mood tracker thing, but I am covering the
entire thing in roses, I’m gonna color it in, and
it’s going to be so pretty. (rhythmic jazz music) And I thought for my little color key, I would draw some little flowers, instead of just a bar, like I normally do, and I love the way this looks. Oh my God, I love it so much! For my habit tracker, like I said, I love the way I did it
last month, so I’m doing basically exactly the
same thing this month, with a little bit different,
of like an aesthetic style that kind of matches my theme. (rhythmic jazz music) My expenses page is the
same as it always is. I’m gonna add a little
flower behind my title, but other than that, it’s gonna look the same as it always is. If you guys have any creative ideas for what I should do next month for my expenses page,
that would be awesome, because I literally never know how to, I just, I just don’t know. Such a boring page. I should just get rid of it. Who needs to keep track of their budget, like pfff, it’s fine,
it’s fine, it’s fine. And then, I didn’t really know what to do with the page next to it. But I do realize that every month, I need just a scribble
page, like a brain dump, a something to just
write random things down that don’t really have a place. So, I’m just gonna make
this page my notes page. (rhythmic jazz music) Next, I’m going to draw my calendar page. I’ve decided to put this later in my spread this month, for some reason. Honestly, no idea why I did that. Just wanted to switch it up. Though I am doing the
same style of calendar as the one that I made last month. I just really love the
way that that looked. And I’m just coloring in the days that are in the months
before and after February. I’m adding some funky washi tape, and that’s pretty much it. On to my weekly spreads. I’m making these pretty much the same way that I made them last month. I like this very boxy,
very structured style. It worked really well for me last month; I was able to fit
everything that I needed to in these boxes, except for like maybe one or two days that were just insane. But I really like the way this looks, it’s really pleasing to look at, and in the upper right corner, I am also adding the weather for the week. I’ve seen a lot of people doing this in their bullet journals, and
I thought it was a great idea, just to kind of look ahead, and be like, “Oh no, it’s rain on Thursday, I better cancel my plans or do
something else or whatever.” The rest of my weeks are pretty much following the same structure. I’m just kinda changing the colors, adding a few pictures of
flowers, changing the font. But honestly, this is one of my favorite bullet journal spreads
that I have ever made. I just love how it’s very
simple, I love the colors, I love the pictures, I
love all the flowers. I don’t know, I’m just really satisfied with the way this month looks. (rhythmic jazz music) But that’s it for February! I hope you guys liked what I
did with this month’s spread. Let me know what you think
March’s theme should be. But I’m excited to hear
what you guys think of, and I’m excited to see what
your bullet journal spreads look like this month. I would love to see photos of them in the comments or wherever. If you’re inspired by one
of these bullet journals, and you made your own version of it, I would love to see it. It would be super cool,
maybe we’ll even feature it. But thank you for watching this video, and I will see you next month. Bye, guys. (rhythmic jazz music)

  1. Everyone is talking about everything unrelated to this month’s planner!!! We need to all appreciate how GOOD this planner thing is and it’s just awesome

  2. Came in super skeptical bc of the bullet journal videos 17 Magazine has …. but this is honestly SOOOO much better. Love the style and personality you have. Rock on!

  3. Do an autumn theme…. I can’t use a lot of peoples seasonal themes because they are usually on the other side of the world to me! #Australia

  4. I haven't touched my bujo since October oops lol. I use mine as a personal to do list (reminding me to upload on Instagram etc) and I have a scruffy planner for school work.

  5. I just discovered these videos!!! Yesssss planner porn.

    Can you try a minimalistic yet aesthetically pleasing theme? Maybe with a minimal space theme?

  6. Ive been wanting to start a bullet journal but i feel like its too late we are in mid February i guess I’ll start March? But i think its going to look weird starting at march on my first page 😭 idk let me know if you guys think i should start in march or not do it at all and wait until next year 😭😭

  7. I really like this girl she's so funny and relatable. She seems like someone I'd want to be friends with. Please keep her around. 🙂

  8. Thank you for making this video! I used to bullet journal and I am returning to it after a long time. Had no idea where to start but your video has definitely helped me. I have an idea for March: in India we have this cool festival called Holi and it would be great if you could use this for your theme as it is a festival of colours and it's great fun!

  9. I think you should do a yellow and light blue theme. Definetly a light and airy look. Maybe with some plants and a yellow sun for your habit tracker. Maybe for your expenses you could do them in a shape. Like a swing set, with each swing being a different category.

  10. Ok but I have I question I feel like nobody’s asking. If this goes month by month what happens if you have to write in something for a month away? Like I have assignments but they’re not all due this month so I need to be able to flip ahead!! I wish I could do a bullet journal though they’re so pretty

  11. For the expenses tracker, I love AmandaRachLee's one she did in her 'bullet journal spreads for students' video – it's way cooler than just listing stuff.

  12. Omg do a lucky charms thing , cuz March is Saint Patrick’s day and I think it would be could to see daily spreads with the #’s of the day in the marshmallows

  13. For March, colors. Rainbow works for Saint Patrick’s Day because of the iconic Leprechaun with a rainbow and gold, for spring because it is represented as a season dotted with colorful flowers, for Women’s Rights Month because rainbows are seen as a feminine aesthetic, and for Dr. Seus’s birthday (and mine, I might add) because of the colorful illustrations in his book. Just a thought.

  14. You seriously need to give AmandaRachLee some credit soon. Some of your spreads are SO similar that it's almost copying!

  15. I love your videos! You should tho publish them atleast a week before next month. It takes a while to draw everything and I like to draw always when I have time, not in stress a day before the new month.

  16. I liked the February Harry Potter themed bullet journal she did..(did it because she got bored of this)It was more awesome go to her insta

  17. You should've made the mood tracker like a big rose and the petals are the days of the month… I still like it though!!!

  18. 🇺🇸I know you said next month but you can do the theme of the American flag for July sense 4 of July is Earth's birthday🇺🇸

  19. the question is, who did it first?
    amanda rach lee or buzzfeed nifty?

  20. Valentine’s Day the day there was school shooting and my friend died😭😢😭😭😭😭😢😢😢😢

  21. The January habit tracker looks like somebody got their period, then hung themselves upside down. I definitely agree to not use red. *It was cute!

  22. i.hate.valentines day. with VERY deep passion……………………I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Except the next day, cuz all the chocolate's on sale!!!

  23. So Im watching all the vids in their Bullet Journals playlist and I feel like in these monthly bullet journal setup vids she always uses a new journal 😂

  24. Is there a video explaining what all these things are like a mood tracker in a habit tracker. Is there like a video that you've already made to explain how you use it
