Say hello to August! This month is very special to me because it is the 12th monthly setup blog post & YouTube video I have done meaning that I have completed one whole year of setups!!! How exciting is that?? I am so thrilled and grateful for all the love, support and encouragement that you give me — THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
As always, I am setting up this wonderful month in my Leuchtturm1917 in Emerald colour. Traditionally, we have the monthly log on the left side along with monthly goals divided into three separate sections – Business, Family & Home, and Personal. Breaking down goals like this is very helpful and I find myself being a lot more productive! Have you tried this yet?
On the right page, there is a mini monthly calendar, This month‘s tasks, events/tasks Coming up along with another mini monthly calendar for the month of September, and Body Shape where I will be tracking my workouts only (more about Body Shape here).
Life in August is a combination of a gratitude log and monthly favourites – I intend to write, letter, and doodle within these two pages and will share a picture on Instagram when it is completed! The lettering is done with my new favourite waterproof Tombow soft Calligraphy pen!
Here comes the ink colour coding monthly log! Almost every day, I keep looking for this page and have to flip through the pages to check if I want to write with this or that colour – you get tired of it after a while, so I have come up with a great solution! Simply secure a piece of paper (I used a card from Me & My big ideas Botanical set) with any masking/washi tape that you like and every time you sit down to write or create, you can simply flip the card and find your ink colours right on the back of this card – this allows you to get back to your writing on a different page and have the ink colours in front of you the whole time!
The opposite page is a review page where you can find all 5 weeks and a monthly review. Reflecting on your week is very helpful and motivating, so if you haven’t tried it yet, give it a go this month 😉
We have 5 weeks to look forward to in August! This month felt like a brilliant idea to have a pink/purple theme – the purple colour you can see within these weeklies is done with an Ecoline no.548.
Last month, I was trying something new – I moved all of the daily boxes to the left page and goals, trackers & focus on sections to the right page. If you are following me on Instagram you will know that I truly enjoyed this little change and decided to keep it for the entire month of August! But again, I shifted the sections on the right page a little bit 🙂 Keeping Focus on section at the bottom of the page creates a little more space for doodling/lettering without looking crowded. We shall see how this turns out!
Let me know in the comments below if you like this setup and what else you would like to see! Thank you so much for coming and reading the post today!
