Happy New Year everyone! ✨
I’m wishing you all an amazing 2019 full of love, laughter, incredible possibilities and precious moments. This is the time to start fresh, and take this opportunity to plan new beginnings and new ideas! I love January, because it’s the time of the year that I always push myself to try new things, and plan the rest of the year. Of course my bullet journal is always there to help me put my head in order and make planning and organising so much easier for me. 😊
One of the things that I love to do in the beginning of each month is to plan my weekly spreads, so that I have them ready to fill in all the information, appointments etc. That way I save time and I have space to plan everything. The theme for January is 'Coffee' and you can see how I've setup my bullet journal for the month in this post, or you can watch the video here.
For my first weekly spread I decided to use an older layout, that I used to use in my second bullet journal. I took advantage that I only wanted to add 6 of the 7 days of the week, and that layout is perfect for that. On the right there is enough space to plan and brainstorm for this and next week, which I think is important to have for the first week of the year.
For the second weekly spread I chose one of the layouts that I used in December as well. I love the way the space is arranged in this layout. Also the section above each day with the grey lines can be used for so many things: daily menu, top priority tasks, happy thought, appointments and so on. In December I used it to write down all my self-care tasks that I had for each day, but I think for January I want to add affirmations to set the mood of that day ☺️.
I love how the doodles and the theme of the month turned out! I wanted to add more cute and funny drawings and I think I managed to do that with the cute faces I added on each doodle and the titles I gave to each one.
For the third week of January I applied one of my most used weekly layouts. This simple grid that you can separate in any category you want, has saved me many times. It’s so simple to create and still functional. So, if I don’t have time to do fancy and complicated layouts, this is my go to one. ☺️
I decided to add this cool dude as well in my notes section! 😂 Living in Cyprus you get to drink cold coffees most of the time, so I knew I had to include a cold coffee (Frappe) in my spreads too.
I think the fourth weekly spread of January is my favourite one of all! I love the colours, the use of space. And the doodles make it even more adorable! 😍
I seriously can wait to start using it and start planning my day in these boxes!
So, these are the 4 weekly layouts for January and the first ones of 2019! I hope you liked this post and that you found some inspiration for your own weekly layouts. If you liked the theme and you'd like to recreate it, please send me some pictures. I'd love to see your pages!! You can always contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
