April In Review + May Plan With Me | My Bujo | Sitting In The Clouds

I was so excited to use my bullet journal in April due to all my new creative spreads I had incorporated and they didn’t let me down. Bullet journalling is all about experimenting and not always the spreads you creative you enjoy and use to it’s full potential but I LOVED all my spreads in April, especially my Doodle A Day and the mood tracker.

IMG_4977.jpg

One of my favourite doodles I did in April was my Beauty and Beast inspired picture that I did when Tom and I went to go see the new live action film, which we both adored.

IMG_4981.jpg

I LOVE my mood tracker spread has it’s just so colourful but it was also a lot of fun to fill out during the month, constantly playing a game of Tetris. I love looking at it and seeing quickly how I was feeling over the month, as you can tell April was a really good month for me, I was pretty much always happy with a few stressed and sad days thrown in.

IMG_4983.jpg

I’ve been really enjoying my new weekly spreads as they give me more space to write down my to-do lists but at the same time still enabling me to track my water for the week as well as keeping my overall notes, university and next week boxes at the bottom.

I’ve also been trying to do some blank space journal, I think that’s what it’s called anyway. Where if you have any space left over in your day, you journal about that day in that space. I, however, tend to stick to quotes/song lyrics relating to that days activities or feelings as I already have my One Line A Day.

Because I loved all my spreads in April, I repeated them all again for May. I regret using the colour orange as my overall theme for the month as now I think about it, it’s very halloweeney.

IMG_4984.jpg

I also really enjoyed reusing an old monthly layout in April, inspired by Boho Berry so I kept it for May. My month always look so free at the beginning but by the end it gets really hectic and full up.

IMG_4985.jpg

IMG_4987.jpg

I pretty much kept all the same moods to track, I replaced sad with cried and made it a light green rather than a dark green.

IMG_4989.jpg

I much preferred having my spending log landscape in April so used the same layout in May but removed the “Fun” category as I found that “Me” and “Fun” were pretty much the same thing. I also realised that ALL my money goes on food, who knew ahah!!

My habit tracker has stayed the same as well. I just enjoyed my bullet journal in April so much I literally copy and pasted it into May. So much so I traced all my headers as I loved them a lot as well.

However, if you’ve been following me for a while you’ll notice one major change, I no longer have a blog tracker. Although I want to use it, I haven’t paid much attention to it for the past couple of months so I got rid of it for May. If I can’t live without it, I can always reintroduce it in June.

2017 Goals | Quarterly Check In

April Plan With Me | My Bujo | Sitting In The Clouds

How are we four months into 2017 already? I remember clear as day setting up my bullet journal for the new year, creating my goals and drinking way too much to welcome in 2017. However, I finally feel grounded and really happy with how my bullet journal is working for me. I think I’ve found the things that do and don’t work for me and I’m so excited to explore April in my bujo.

March: Plan With Me | March In Review

IMG_4563

For April I decided to switch up my monthly overview. I used to do this layout, inspired by Boho Berry, when I first started bullet journalling at the very end of 2015, beginning of 2016. This layout worked for me back then but I wanted to try it out again as I’m now much more confident in what I want my bullet journal to be for me.

I simply have a line per day while each day is spilt into three categories; all day, morning and evening. I’m still using my trusty colour coding system as the seperate colours for the different things (purple: social, pink: uni, green: work, blue: hospital) and they really help me stay organised and see from a glance how my day is going to be occupied. The column on the right hand side just houses some more generic to-do lists; monthly TBR (books I want to read in April), a monthly to-do list (tasks I want to get within the month but doesn’t have a set day), events that are coming up next month and a uni box for me to write any uni tasks or deadlines for the month.

IMG_4564

Flipping the page I have another “One Line A Day” collection as I loved doing this spread in March. However, I wanted another, different way in documenting each day of the month so I opted for a “Doodle A Day” spread as well. Having both on the same double page spread will allow me to see written and visually how my month was.

IMG_4568

Moving onto the next double page spread is where my monthly tracking starts. Here I have my “Monthly Habit Tracker”, I used to do these weekly but at the end of March wanted to switch back to the monthly overview and really enjoyed it so carried it into April.

Opposite is my “Monthly Sleeping Tracker”. March was the first month I tried this out and I actually saw some correlation in the hours I slept and how good I felt when waking up so I’m really excited to continue on in April and see if the same patterns occur. The mini table at the bottom is to track if I read before sleeping, if I snuggled with Tom and if I used my phone before sleeping. I feel like I get a better nights sleep either if I read beforehand or if I slept with Tom so I just like ticking the relevant each day to see if a pattern occurs.

IMG_4569

Next is my trusty “Blog Tracker”. In this bullet journal I have never gone a month without creating one of these spreads, it’s just such a useful way for me to track my blog posts each month. However, I have noticed that I write in the blog posts for certain days and then end up changing my mind. Therefore next month I may use sticky notes to write in the blog posts, enabling me to easily move around the ideas if I want to switch up posts.

IMG_4570

Next is my “Spending Log”. If you saw my “March In Review” post you may notice some differences between my two spending trackers. In March, I did it portrait and I had A LOT more categories. I realised that I barely used many of the different categories I created so in April I shorten the list to only the key ones; Food, Uni, Car, Fun and Me. Also having it landscape and in a more bar chart style will really help me see my spends more clearly.

IMG_4573

My final monthly spread for April is my “Mood Tracker”. April is my first official month of trying a spread like this as in March I kind of did one as a spare of a moment thing as I had some room under my habit tracker, and enjoyed the idea so carried it through to April, expanding it to a whole page and developing the idea.

I got this particular Tetris idea off a fellow blogger, unfortunately I can’t remember who which sucks…I really need to start writing peoples names down that I take inspiration from. I have basically dedicated a mood to each of the classic Tetris pieces. Each day I will pick a overall mood for the day and draw the shape into the “Tetris Playing Area”. Over the course of the month I will have to start actually playing the game, trying to fit each of the pieces together. I think it will be a fun way to track my mood as well as having some fun at the same time.


I really love how April turned out for me in my bullet journal and I can’t wait to use every spread. I’m writing this on April 1st and I have already done my doodle of the day, and I can already tell I’m going to love this spread. Fingers crossed I keep it up.

March In Review | My Bujo | Sitting In The Clouds

Welcome Back!!!…but I’m actually getting bored of saying that every time I start a new post, so you may not see it in my next one, but anyway. This past month I’ve been trying to really utilise my bullet journal and make it something more than just a place I write my to-do lists down in. It’s always been a place to let my creativity flow so at the end of February after being so inspired by Boho Berry, I took inspiration from a lot of her spreads to try for myself, therefore it was the first month in my bullet journal that I used a “month in review” spread and it’s came in so handy that I thought I’d share it with you guys.

IMG_4528.jpg

Now a “month in review” spread varies for everyone but generally it’s a spread in your bullet journal to evaluate how your month has gone; what pages worked well and you want to create again for the upcoming month, what spreads just really didn’t work and new ideas you have and want to try. Doing this enables you to really look at how to fully use your bullet journal and have no wasted space. I LOVED doing this spread and I feel it’s enabled my April spreads to really adapt and evolve into spreads that will really help me.

IMG_4531.jpg

I’ve been using the same monthly overview spread since starting starting this particular bullet journal back in September. I, did however, used to use a different format which I wanted to try out again and see if it still worked for me. I still really enjoy the classic box a day calendar spreads, I just wanted to switch things up. Therefore in my April Plan With Me you’ll be seeing a new monthly spread.

IMG_4535.jpg

I thought my other monthly overview page would be a great spread to put all my monthly to-dos, blog posts, books to read, etc, however in the end it just become a dead space. Although I did try to use it, I never really flipped back to it and this spread. After trying it for a second time, I have decided this style of spread just isn’t for me.

My “One Line A Day” spread on the other hand, worked really well. I knew it would as I love my “One Line A Day” book, but having this spread within my bullet journal instead of having it in a completely different book was really helpful. It’s a spread that I have continued onto April along with new spread I’m really excited to use. However, you’ll have to wait for my April Plan With Me to see what it is.

IMG_4537.jpg

My blog tracker spread is one that never disappoints. It enables me to track my blog posts, plan ahead my posts for the entire month, and write down any new ideas. I love how I use it and how it looks, I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of it or switching it up any time soon.

IMG_4540.jpg

Now my time log started out strong but it fizzled out around the middle of the month. Because I’m kind of a perfectionist I had to have one block of each colour meaning I had to track where my hours of the day went on a post-it note and then at the end of the day, add it all up and then track it in my bullet journal. This just became hassle for me during the weekdays with work and uni, things I didn’t feel like I need to track, so this spread failed for me and I won’t be continuing onto April. It was a great idea that unfortunately just didn’t work for me.

IMG_4543.jpg

My spending log on the other hand was amazing. It made me really think about where my money was going, and if I wanted to buy something I knew I had to track it in my bullet journal and that always made me rethink if I needed it/wanted it. For this reason and the fact it helped me see where my money was going and made me cut down on things I didn’t really need, I’m continuing it onto April, but with a few new adjustments because the current spread is very messy so I’m hoping that my new layout will be a lot neater overall.

IMG_4544.jpg

Here is just a few brain dump pages I made. I’ve never been keen on brain dump pages before as I just liked my bullet journal to be like a planner, very neat and tidy and I found brain dump pages kind of messy. However, after being so inspired by Boho Berry and wanting to make my bullet journal more than just a to-do list book, I decided to try a brain dump page.

OMG they are wonderful. I was being told a lot of information at university one day and just decided to write it all down in my bullet journal on a “brain dump” page and it really helped me clear my mind and make me less stressed about it all. Although I haven’t really flipped back to either of the pages much, I still love having them as they have come in handy sometimes. I am no longer afraid of making my bullet journal a little messy with pages like this and will for sure be doing more in the future.

IMG_4546.jpg

This is a spread that you wouldn’t have seen in my March Plan With Me as I added it a few days into the month and that is my “sleeping tracker” spread which I LOVE!!! I track how many hours I sleep and how good I feel when I wake up. I also track if Tom has stayed round as I always sleep better in his arms….soppy I know and if I’ve read before I’ve slept to see if reading does actually relax me and help me get a better night sleep. So far I’m seeing a collation between getting 7 hours sleep and feeling really good. It seems the more sleep I get sometimes I worse I feel. I love this spread and I’m finding it really interesting so I’m definitely carrying it into next month.

Much like my month overview, I was just getting bored of planning out the same weekly spread each week and wanted to try something new as well as something more simple so it took me less time to set up each week. I got this idea from someone else, although I can’t remember who but I love it and found it worked really well for me. It still enabled me to track my water and habits within the week as well as my uni deadlines and other notes. This spread is a lot more clean and simple and a lot easier to read, I’m really enjoying them.

IMG_4553.jpg

As you can tell I added quite a few new spreads and collections to my bullet journal in March as I just loved being in there. One of my new collections is the “how I rate my books”. Now to be honest, I was just bored one night and wanted to be in my bujo so created this spread and although I really like it, I don’t flip to it at all, maybe one day it will come in useful.

IMG_4554.jpg

On the opposite side I have a monthly habit tracker and yes I was tracking my habits weekly but I wanted to try again with a monthly overview to see more of how each of my habits was playing out over the month rather than weekly. I much prefer it even though I did like the weekly. I have adapted it by adding a few new habits and it’s been recreated in April.

At the bottom you may also have noticed a mood tracker. This was a spare of the moment idea as I had some room left over but I actually really like it and have included it, but a new take on it for April.

IMG_4560.jpg

I was reading quite a bit in March and when I came to colouring in my old spread, I got so confused with which books they were and what order I’d read them and even the colour coding system so I started a fresh. I’ve seen loads of people use the bookshelf design to track their reading so I decided to give it a go and so far I’m loving it. I find it a lot easier to see what I’ve read as I now write the titles on the spines as well as the ratings I gave them as the colour coding system for me is a lot easier to read.The other page is a cute little quote by Dr.Zuess to fill up a blank page before heading into my new weekly spread.

I was enjoying experimenting so much in March that I decided to try another new weekly spread.

IMG_4562.jpg

I haven’t even started this coming week yet and I can already tell I’m not going to like this new spread. I got inspiration from “bujo_blossom” on Instagram as her spread is beautiful but it just isn’t working for me already. I completely forget to leave a space to track my water and my blog posts so I know it’s not going to work for me from the get go. I will be going back to my previous weeklies for April for sure.


I really enjoyed looking back over my month in my bullet journal to see what worked and what didn’t and I feel it has really helped me plan out for the month of April. My April Plan With Me will be live on my blog at the end of next week so keep your eyes peeled for that as I’m so excited to share it with you. It turned out amazingly!

Thank you for reading and supporting my blog. I did have a little one week break as I just didn’t feel motivated to write and I didn’t want to put our content just for the sake for it but I have some really good blog posts coming so get excited.

until next time,

My Current NON-Beauty Favourites | Sitting In The Clouds

Welcome Back!!! I haven’t done a favourites post since the new year, I actually think my last one was my November Favourites. However, I’ve been sticking to the same makeup products for a while now so I don’t have any new ones to share with you, therefore I thought I’d share with you my non-beauty favourites as those do change often and I thought it would be a great way to get to know me on a more personal level.

(I want to make this a three part series, including my makeup favourites, one last time, and my current fashion favourites. Let me know if this is something you would enjoy)

IMG_4462.jpg

I have so many different hobbies, reading and makeup are just two of them that I share with you all but I don’t think many of you know that I’m a massive Sims player. Sims first came out in like 2000 (yes, 17 years ago) and I’ve played every generation. Of course, I’m older now, nearing 20 so I don’t play as much as I used to but it’s still something I love. It’s time where I can escape from reality…a bit likes books, and just distract myself from the real world. I could get lost in this game for HOURS. I’ve been playing it a lot more recently when I have a spare hour or so. I’ve also been watching a lot more Sims videos on YouTube, Deligracy and The Sims Supply being the main two, as well as Steph0Sims but I also love watching Alfie and Zoe play Sims 4 as they are such newbs, however this can sometimes really irritate me.

IMG_4472.jpg

You all know that I love to read as I talk about books a lot on my blog but a book I’ve recently read, and will be included in my March Wrap Up post is Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I was skeptical about going into this read as I really disliked The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and there had been a lot of comparisons but OMG this book is incredible!!!! An easy 5 star for me and my second 5 star book of the year. If you are a reader and haven’t read this book I highly highly recommend it! Plus, it has a gorgeous cover.

IMG_4467.jpg

Tom got me a gorgeous pair of Swarovski earrings for Christmas (What I Got For Christmas) and I told myself I would save them for special occasions but I’ve been gravitating towards them for everyday wear as they are just too stunning to leave in a box for months on end. They add a something extra to a simple jumper and jeans outfit and I love them.

IMG_4463.jpg

I never used to be a huge green tea fan and only drank it on occasion, however recently (the last couple of months) it’s become a staple in my morning routine, so much so I can no longer drink regular tea and enjoy it. BUT the only green tea I like, even normal green tea doesn’t do much for me these days, is the Twinings Cranberry Green Tea. It’s soo good!!! If you’re a tea drinker, definitely try this one out.
(I was thinking about doing a benefits of green tea blog post, let me know if you would be interested)IMG_4468.jpg

Another favourite of mine recently has been the Staedtler Pigment Liner pens. I originally got them for uni so I could focus on really designing my sketchbook for presentation purposes, however they have become a much loved accessory along side my bullet journal. I love them so much because they have six different nib sizes to choose from as well as an angled tip so I can really create a variety of headers. But the best thing is that there is no bleed through onto the next page at all.

On the same theme as the pens, my bullet journal, a constant favourite of mine, as been a huge love of mine in March because of all my new spreads thanks to the inspiration from Boho Berry. I’ve even added spreads through-out the month since my “March Plan With Me” that I can’t wait to share with you guys. Some of the spreads haven’t worked like I wanted to but that’s what great about the bullet journal system. One question: Is it bad to plan for April already?!

IMG_4471

Now time for some music favourites

  • Ed Sheeran…of course!! Love his new album, favourite songs include Barcelona, Nancy Mulligan and Bibia Be Ye Ye.
  • Aston Merrygold, my boy in blue recently released a new single, Show Me. It’s one of my favourites from him.
  • Simple Plan, one of my favourite bands and although their most recent album is great, I’ve been going old school and listening to their “Get Your Heart On” album which was released in 2013.

I would love to share my Spotify playlists with you all so if you know how I can do that easily, let me know.


I hope you enjoyed this blog post, let me know by liking and commenting. Also, let me know if you would like to see this as part of a series, as I think a fashion favourites would be really fun.

Do we share any of the same favourites? Would love to know if you’ve played the Sims?

Plan With Me: March Set Up | My Bujo | Sitting In The Clouds

TWITTER | INSTAGRAM

Welcome Back!!! I’ve always loved my bullet journal but since Kara from Boho Berry has been uploading her “month in my bujo” videos each day in February, I have become really inspired to experiment and utilised my bullet journal more so when planning out March I decided to add more monthly spreads to try and stay even more organised and really track and keep on top of things. At the end of March, I will review how well the new monthly spreads worked for me but I’m excited to start using my new spreads to see if they actually work.


IMG_3085.JPG

However, before any of my new spreads come into play, I have my regular month at a glance double page spread as I love starting the new month off with an overview so I can plan ahead easily. I don’t have much planned for March at the moment but I’m hoping by the end of the month it will be filled up.

IMG_3088.JPG

The next spread is a new one for me, however I have tried a similar style in the past but I didn’t end up using it. I decided to try it out again after getting inspiration from Kelly from Kelly Rambles here on WordPress, but of course adapting the spread to my own personal needs. I think the “uni” box will come in super handy, along with my monthly TBR and To-Do list. I’m apprehensive about how useful the others one will be but the bujo system is all about experimenting so I’m interested in if they will work and if I could adapt them for the following month if I end up really liking the overall system.

IMG_3089.JPG

Opposite, I have a “one line a day” spread. I actually have a “one line a day” book that spans over five years and when I fill it out, I love looking back over it. However, recently I keep forgetting and so I thought I’d transition the idea over into my bullet journal to see if because it’s in something I look at everyday it will help me remember to fill it out.

This spread is simply an adaption of the “gratitude log” a lot of people have. However, I personally prefer calling it “one line a day” so it can be negative or positive or even a quote. Really just one line about anything that I did or came to mind that particular day.

IMG_3090.JPG

My monthly blog tracker has been part of my bullet journal for a while now but only the since the beginning of the new year has it become a double page spread. I like having the check boxes of “pictures taken”, “written”, “edited” and “posted”. It really helps keep me stay on top of everything blog related. The “notes” section is very big and I haven’t yet filled it up all the way but I like putting anything blog related there. For example, I hit 600 followers on the 1st of February so I did a little decorative area to celebrate this in the “notes” section in my February blog tracker spread.

IMG_3095.JPG

The Time Log spread is something completely new to me but I was so inspired by Kara from Boho Berry, I really wanted to try it out for myself. Basically, each square equals one hour and I’ve colour coded the tasks I want to track. For example if on March 1st, I spend 2 hours on my blog, I will colour in two boxes in yellow, if I spent 1 hour reading, one box will be coloured in green. If this spread goes according to plan, it will be really interesting at the end of the month to see how I spend my time and what I prioritise. I have a feeling a lot of it will be pink and blue ahah!!

Similarly, I also now have a spending log, using the same idea of colouring in boxes according to how much I spend on certain things, such as my car, traveling, entertainment and food. However, each box will represent £1. I have tried to do this sort of spread in the past but the idea flopped because I was spending so much, I didn’t have enough boxes on the page and I felt so guilty spending so much. However, as I am a student now, I’m working less but still spending money on my car and traveling into London for lectures I really feel like this spread will really open my eyes into where exactly my money is going each month.

IMG_3096.JPG

Right at the bottom of the spread, I have included a start and an end box. This is simply for me to place where my bank balance was at the start of the month and where it is at the end of the month, allowing me to see actually how much I’ve spent in the entire month.

Turning the page will start my normal weekly spreads.


I’m super excited to try all my new spreads out in March as I’m hoping they will really help me out, especially the time and spending log. To be honest, I just want February to end and March to begin so I can start using them all.

Do you use any of the same or similar spreads? Do they work for you? What are your favourite spreads I’ve mentioned or do you have a favourite spread in your bujo that works really well for you? Let’s chat in the comments.

until next time,

xoxo, rachel

Very Mini Makeup Haul + My UGG Obsession | Tea Talk #5 | Sitting In The Clouds

TWITTER | INSTAGRAM

Welcome Back!!! This tea talk is going to be as real as a teal talk is ever going to get, except I’m drinking squash rather than tea but squash talk doesn’t sound half as good as tea talk does. I have so much to ramble on about in this blog post because it feels like I haven’t spoken to you guys in ages, I think it’s been less than a week but it feels like forever. So let’s start with the thing you guys clicked on this blog post for…to see what makeup products I picked up today.

I went to the highstreet to buy paint for one of my university projects and apparently the art shop we’ve had in our boring highstreet since we’ve lived here, 10 years, has decided to disappear when I actually need it…typical. But on the bright side, our Superdrug is still open for business and I was running low of a few of my holy grails so I had to pick up some spares. Luckily, both the products I needed were Maybelline and they were having a buy 1 get one half price offer on all their cosmetics so that was a nice surprise as I’m BROKE at the minute.

img_1120

  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Oil Blend Mascara – I received the Maybelline Falsies for Christmas so I opened it the other day so I could save my holy grail, Maybelline Sensational, and save some money by using a mascara I already own, but OMG, I’m sorry to bad mouth Maybelline because they are my favourite drugstore brand but the Falsies is s*** compared to the Lash Sensational. It doesn’t give my lashes any volume, and it barely looks like I’ve put any mascara on at all. So I’m super happy I now have a back up of my all time favourite so I don’t have to go through the torture of using the Falsies mascara again.
  • Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – Another holy grail product of mine. It has amazing coverage, it’s lightweight, it doesn’t crease and the staying power is awesome. Love this concealer.

So there’s my very very mini makeup haul for you guys. I didn’t see the point in doing a whole blog post just for two items so they ended up in a tea talks post. Now onto the next rambley section of this blog post, talking about my obsession with UGGS. I was lucky enough to receive another gorgeous pair of UGGS this year for Christmas, the grey minis (What I Got For Christmas). However, my mum got them on Black Friday to save some cash…I don’t blame her and because my size, a size 7, had all sold out, she purposely got an 8 so at least I had them to open on Christmas. We returned them early in the new year to get my actual size and when they were returned to us, they were the exact size we had originally, an 8. We called up, they apologised for the error, we sent them back again, only to have to wait about another week and a half for them to return to us…again. They finally, in the right size, got to us earlier this week.

I’m a little obsessed with them to say the least. Today was the first day I’d worn them out as I waterproof sprayed them yesterday and had to wait for them to dry completely before venturing out in them. But they are beautiful and I love them so much. I actually have four other pair of UGGS, excluding my UGG trainers. I seriously have an obsession and as soon as I put my new ones with my outfit today, I had the wanting for the Chestnut minis because then I would have the complete set of minis. I’m so obsessed it’s unreal. They are just so comfy, they go with any outfit I put on and they’re just awesome shoes.

And finally, if you’ve got this far and actually read this blog post I congratulate you because it’s just been so random. I know I have been off my blogging game at the minute and I’m trying my best to stick to my blogging schedule, Monday, Friday and Sundays but my first ever university submission date is steadily getting nearer and I have SO much work to do for it so when I’m off university, I’m working and in the evening once I’m home from uni, I’m working. I usually work until 9pm and after that I just want to chill out before I go to bed ready for another hectic day full of uni work. So I’m sorry for the lack of blog posts but my submission date is the end of this month, beginning of next so by February I should be back to my usual routine of dedicating Fridays to sorting out my blog.

Thank you for baring with me and please stay baring with me until February. You can keep up to date with my whereabouts on Twitter and Instagram, as I’m still on them constantly. I hope you understand and I will still try and get blog posts out for you guys every now and then, just my schedule isn’t really happening at the moment and I’m sorry.

until next time,

xoxo, rachel
