August Bullet Journal Cover
 Unquestionably, it’s official – 2000’s trends are back!
With this in mind, my August bullet journal theme is inspired by
Ed Hardy’s designs.
Although the looks were, in general, a little bit in poor taste, I loved it.
As a matter of fact, it was a great way to wear a kind of tattoo without having them permanently inked on the skin.
With this in mind, I drew a simple rose doodle and add a ribbon banner.
 Every time before I start planning layouts for next month, I choose a theme.
Although it isn’t obligatory, it perfectly suits my obsession with cohesion.
For this reason, I decided to go with the Venice Beach theme for my August bullet journal layout.
Indeed, summer is everything you want it to be – chilling out, relaxing, and full of sand, water, and sun.
Along with this, Venice Beach looks like a place to have great fun.
With this in mind, I sketched a pink VW Van with three decorative surfboards inspired by most instagrammable wall murals.
Also, I wrote August with block letters and add drop shadows.
Here you can learn
how to doodle with many awesome step-by-step tutorials.
August Bullet Journal Monthly Spread
 This year I decided to go for a classic monthly calendar with a place for my monthly goals and a to-do list.
Obviously, I had to add
easy flower doodles and a ribbon bullet journal banner.
 For my August monthly log, I created a simple vertical layout.
Due to my business and personal life, I need only a minimal glance at the month.
As a content creator, I want to have a space for setting monthly goals and planning out the marketing strategy.
I incorporated the Venice Beach theme by filling block letters with “mural” patterns from cover page and drawing the lifeguard tower doodle.

 After two years of keeping a bullet journal on a regular basis, I just can’t imagine not creating bujo brain dump pages.
If you want to learn more about
how to use a brain dump with a bullet journal, read my previous post.
This year’s brain dump pages include one designed for a brainstorm session and the other to get my random thoughts structured.
 On the other side, I decided to make a brain dump page.
Sometimes I feel like my mind runs a million miles a minute.
Making a date with your brain really changed my life. I get everything from my mind and transfer it onto a bullet journal page.
Next, I added a task management page to organize these messy thoughts.
Weekly Planner for August
 Last but not least, it’s time to show you my
bujo weekly spread.
Recently I’ve been obsessed with dutch door bujo spreads.

Also, I leave a space for a weekly review and brain dump (again).
Undoubtedly, it helps me a lot to stay on track and work towards goals without being distracted.
