Hello Planning Mashers!

Once I finished the Summer doodles post and video, I really got myself pumped for the beach holiday mood. Since that’s not an option for me this summer, I decided to bring the beach holidays to my Bullet Journal pages.
My July theme is everything summer with a pinch of beach holiday mood. I’m using a lot of doodles from my tutorials, so check these out if you ever want to replicate my setup.
Before I forget, I just wanted to let you know that there is a Plan With Me video at the end of the post, so feel free to scroll down.
I also prepared a special sheet of Summer Planner stickers for you, so make sure to check it out in the Resources Vault or signup and join Planning Mashers in the form at the end of the post!
Bullet Journal Supplies
Here’s a little run down of the supplies I used in my setup. My journal is Nuuna with a cover from Cocoa Paper. But that’s not the interesting part, is it.
I wanted to go very bright and summery, so I mostly used Tombow Dual Brush pens from Bright set and Tropical set. They really brought up the sunny mood!
I also used Zebra Clickart Marker pens. These are click pens that are actually markers! I used them to do headers and colored boxes.
Finally, I use my new Unipin fineliners (01, 03 and 08), Pilot Dr. Grip mechanical pencil and Sakura Foam eraser. Loving all of these!
For my cover page, I didn’t want to do anything too fancy, so I kept is pretty simple.
I used the black block letters for the month to contrast with the colorful summer doodles I have there. The doodles represent pretty much all the little themes I’ll be using in this setup: summer fruits, tropical vegetation and beach vacations.
You probably notice that there is some horrible ghosting here (the one hiding behind the Tombows). Well, that happened because I didn’t pen text my Zebra Clickart on this Nuuna paper, and it turns out they are ok for writing but totally not ok for coloring.
Always do a pen test, guys!
Finally I did a proper monthly log with a calendar on one side and a to do list on another!
This month I also had a poll on my Instagram stories to see what you want me to do with my monthly log, and most of you wonderful Planning Mashers voted for a calendar view. I decided to add some spice to it by drawing differently colored daily boxes, rather than one big black table.
As of now, we are officially two months away from leaving China for good and starting out next adventure in Bolivia, so I have TONS of stuff to do, therefore my to-do list is now a whole page.
The space under the calendar where I usually have monthly chores is now a quote, and this is the one that ghosted all over my cover page! I still love it though, so it’s ok.
All the lettering I’m doing in this setup can be done without any special lettering skills, so just check the video at the end of the post to see how easy it actually is.
Habit Tracker and Gratitude Log
On my stories, you guys voted for me to have a doodly habit tracker, so I went with this camera doodle – it actually has enough areas to color for all the habits I monitor.
This habit tracker took me FOREVER and silly Masha forgot she has some pretty cool circle stencils to help her out. So yeah these cameras are a bit wobbly, but I always loved the hand drawn look in the doodles. More macho.
The gratitude log this month is again with doodles, just like you voted. It actually can also be an entry on the “Different Doodles” challenge hosted by @plansthatblossom and @menwhobullet. So join it and let’s all have fun with it!
Goals and Playlist
This month the weekly checkups are back to my goals page! You can see 5 headers and under each of them, I’ll be writing in detail what I did for my goals that week.
The Playlist page is something new. I asked you guys what page you want me to try in July and most of Planning Mashers said playlist, so that’s what I’m doing. I’ll definitely share it with you guys once I’m done filling the page with my most beloved July podcasts and music.
What? No weeklies? Yeap, this month I say goodbye to pre-made weeklies!
In June I decided to shake up a bit the way I use my Bullet Journal. Instead of planning my days there, I started to use it more as an accountability journal.
Each week I sat down, did some journaling about the week (what happened, what I should pay attention to, how it made me feel) and of course I wrote all the steps towards my monthly goals in bullet points.
I discovered that this way I’m learning to be more mindful of everything around me and focus more on the bigger picture.
I might be back to weekly setups in September or October, but for now I love the reflection journal side of my BuJo.
This month all the goal-related things are in my goals page, so I decided not to do any special weekly setups. I’ll do the original Bullet Journal system approach – each week I’ll create a header with the dates of the week and just start journaling for as long as I feel like.
Plan With Me video
Finally, here is my plan with me video, TAA-DAAA! so you can really see how easy these pages actually are! Well, except for the habit tracker that is.
Anyways, if you decide to recreate some of these, I’d love to see them, so tag me on Instagram or share them in our Facebook group!
