Plan With Me February-March 2019

Throughout the long school breaks, I lay out as many upcoming months in my bullet journal so I don’t worry about setting up spreads needed during the semester. I managed to complete through March, which is when my Spring Break begins (when I’ll lay out April and onward.

Above are the “stickers” I used for February and March, with a few stickers for New Year’s and Martin Luther King Jr. Day. When printed at 100% scale, they’ll be the same size as seen in my own journal below. Download these PDFs here for free (for personal use only):

How I make these PDFs:

  • Grab images from various sources (Google, Instagram, Pinterest)
  • Paste them into a Blank Document in Pages or Microsoft Word
  • Edit images to the correct size or color needed to match my washi tape
  • Print them on regular paper, cut them out, and tape them into my bujo—however, you can save time by printing on special sticky-backed paper, like this Avery Sticker Paper 20-pack from Amazon.

Scroll onward to see how I put these stickers to use in my bullet journal! Please enjoy my New Year’s, February & March spreads below~

Review: Rothy’s The Point

For almost the entire year, I’d been ranting and raving about Rothy’s shoes to friends and loved ones. To my excited delight, my sisters got me a gift card for Christmas for my very first pair.

*UPDATE* Since posting these, I have sold these shoes and bought a larger size in a different color (6.5) … I’ve also tried size 7, which was slightly large for me and kept slipping off the heel. Size 6.5 is perfect for me! Don’t be dissuaded by the strange sizing—for those who can’t try them on in-store, Rothy’s has a great 30-day return & exchange policy so long as the shoes are unworn. Rothy’s shoes also have great resale value in the online secondhand market.

I ordered The Point in Mink. For most shoes, I float between size 5½ to 6. I took the advice of sizing up for wide feet and got myself 6’s (again, I later sized up to 6.5 because size 6 was just a touch too small).

Mink is an incredibly beautiful color, described as a “warm taupe” but I think it does lean towards purple in some lights. It’s versatile and can be paired with so many outfits, which is why I chose it.

The Surprising Benefits of Used Goods

Have you been curious about thrifting, or you’re already hooked and wanna convince your loved ones to shop secondhand? Here are 3 reasons why buying recycled fashion and other secondhand goods is super beneficial, with a few suggestions that may help you get started.

Shameless plug here for Pick of the Litter in Burlingame—100% of sales benefit the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA.
They also have an online eBay store and 100% of proceeds to support our local shelter animals. (via Yelp)

So, the 3 reasons why you should shop secondhand are…

The environment will thank you!


By extending the life of used goods, you do these 3 key things:

  • Saving perfectly usable things from the landfill
  • Reducing your carbon footprint
  • Opposing chemical pollution & water overuse

New things are constantly manufactured for ever-changing fashion, cultural, design and technological trends. Most things (mass-produced goods) require raw, unprocessed material. This overproduction for material is what makes buying new things problematic.

The 5-Year Journal, Q&A a Day

The 5-Year Journal, Q&A a Day
Afraid of diving head first into journaling? This baby
has prompts for each day to get the ball rolling for you.

With 2018 drawing to a close, I’d like to spotlight this neat little journal which I’ve been using to supplement my bullet journaling. It provides daily questions which, when used daily, is a nice reflection of those years once they’ve been filled up. I started this in January 2017 and managed to keep up with it, despite needing to go back a week to fill it in a few times.

Published by Potter Style, Q&A a Day: 5-Year Journal has beautiful gilded pages that caught my eye in Barnes & Nobles last year. Behind its simplistic paper covering and stylishly lettered title are 365 questions for you to answer throughout the year. The layout makes it easy for a person to start any year on any month since you fill in the last two numbers following ’20__’ before writing down your answer.
