Es La Hora Del Chisme | Where Tina Spills The Tea #2

Es La Hora Del Chisme is my take on Jamie’s If We’re Having Coffee. Es La Hora Del Chisme (translates to It’s The Gossip Hour) is where I share with you a little bit of what is happening behind the blog. When I rebranded my blog, I wanted to share more of my personal life and I haven’t really done that but I’m at a point in my life where I want to share with you what is going on with me. So please, get something to drink so I can share with you all the chisme going on in my life. Right now, I’m drinking a Jack Daniels Country Cocktails in Berry Bunch. I love Jack Daniels Country Cocktails and this one is one of my favorites. Comadre let me tell you… the Littles started school on Monday. Little 1 is in First Grade and Little 2 is in […]

My Absolute Favorite Bullet Journal Set Up Ever (October 2017)

Welcome to another As Planned By Tina! Today I’m showing my October 2017 set up and as you can see as the title of blog post. It is my absolute favorite set up yet. I’m a very Halloween/Fall type person. I love hoodies, I love the skulls and darkness of it all. I think it’s mainly because I relate to it but also because it’s my favorite time of year. Before I begin planning each month, I tend to flip through my almost completed month. My September bullet journal setup was extremely simple and I actually kept up with it. It was something I wanted to continue into my October 2017 setup. Each month, I attempt to keep a theme with my spreads. Of course, my October 2017 setup is very Halloween theme and it makes me so happy. My October 2017 set up begins on page 125 so I’m […]

As Planned By Tina | My September 2017 Bullet Journal Set Up

Welcome to another edition of As Planned By Tina. Today I’m sharing with you my September 2017 Bullet Journal Set Up. This month, my followers on Twitter decided I should do a Harry Potter theme for this month. I attempted but it didn’t turn out quite like how I imagine but I’m pretty happy with my set up this month, it’s extremely short and simple. I am still in my Royal Blue Leuchttrum 1917 Dotted Hardcover Journal. I’m about 100 pages in so I definitely think this one can last me until December. (I’m totally brainstorming ideas for a reading bullet journal and a regular bullet journal for next year!) As usual, I did my layout with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens and my Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens in M and XS. In my August set up, I mentioned I wasn’t feeling the entire set up and I ended […]

August 2017 Bullet Journal Set Up

My August 2017 Bullet Journal set up was something I was looking forward to doing and when I decided to do a color scheme I thought the primary colors would be amazing! And now 7 days into August, I absolutely hate it. But that’s the best part about bullet journaling, you learn as you go. While I may hate the color scheme, I’ve found these spreads to be actually pretty good. I’m looking to revamp completely in September so I’m really excited to show you that set up next month. I am still in my Leuchtturm1917 Hardcover Medium Dotted Journal in Navy Blue. For August, I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pens in Primary Colors and my Pitt artist pen in M, XS and F. The idea for this spread was to have a simple calendar set up. I noticed that I haven’t been turning to my full spread calendar […]

As Planned By Tina | Inside My New Bullet Journal

As Planned By Tina is my little space on the blog where I share with you one of my favorite things bullet journaling. This month, I finally moved into my new bullet journal. I also bought a Create 365 Happy Planner (its not going so well with this one) because the kids will begin school soon and I feel like a regular paper planner may help keep up with everything. I’ll post about this later on. Introducing my new Bullet journal! I ordered a pink leuchtturm1917 notebook but the first ten pages of it came out so I had to return it. I decided to order a Navy Blue leuchtturm1917 notebook. I absolutely love the color and I couldn’t wait to dive in and make new spreads. Before I moved into my new bullet journal, I made a list of things I wanted to keep, change, add and delete from […]

As Planned By Tina | June 2017 Set Up

Welcome to another As Planned By Tina edition! Today I am sharing with you my June 2017 Bullet Journal set up. June will be my last month in this bullet journal and while I’m sad I’m at the end of this journal, I am so excited to start in a new one. I kept this very similar to my May set up but I just decided to do a bit of a summer theme. I followed almost the same set up for May only I made the Goals section a little bit longer and I used just on whole section for it. For this I used my Tombow Primary Colors and my Faber Castell Artist Pen in M. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest trying to find a habit tracker that would fit my needs. This is one I came up with that I saw on Pinterest. I […]

As Planned By Tina | May Bullet Journal Set Up

Can you believe its May already? I feel like the year just started and now here we are in May. I don’t think I’ve shared my bullet journal set up and I thought it would be nice to show you guys some of the spreads I will be using in my red dotted leuchtturm1917 Medium size A5 hardcover. May Starter Page – Every month I have a starter page, for May I decided to do a Catrina or Sugar Skull. There was no particular reason for this, I just decided it would be neat. I did not draw this, I traced it. Monthly Calendar / Log – This is a monthly spread that I’ve been using for the past couple months. I find it to the most useful for me. For May, I used appointments/events, bills, Cristian (Little 1), Birthdays, Blog, Instagram Challenge, Kids Games + Practice, Personal, Pre-Orders and […]

As Planned By Tina | Confessions of a bullet journalist

Hey everyone! I am slowly working my way out of my blogging/reading slump and today I have a different kind of post! I have wanted to start a bullet journal series for some time on the blog but just haven’t felt inspired but today I am. I’ve been bullet journaling for about a year now and I wanted to share with you some of the things that I have learned through my bullet journal journey. 1. You don’t need a fancy notebook to bullet journal – now if you have noticed many bullet journalists use moleskine or leuchtturm A5 journals. But the truth is, you can bullet journal with ANYTHING. All you really need to bullet journal is a journal of any kind it doesn’t matter if it is grid, dotted, plain or lined and a pen or pencil! 2. The bullet journal only works if you make it work […]

As Planned By Tina | Plan With Me October

One of my favorite things about the bullet journal is how adaptable it is to your needs. You can always customize it to your needs and find the things that work for you. When I began planning October, I wanted to experiment more and really test out some new spreads and tweak the ones that I’ve been using for a while. I love to begin each month with it’s own starter page, for October I went with a Halloween theme. Let it be known that I am not a great drawer. My dad definitely did not pass along his ability to draw to me so I do the best I can. I tend to start the month with a full calendar view because it helps me keep track of bills and birthdays. This month I did something a little different. I did one page my month in a glance and […]

As Planned By Tina | What Is a Bullet Journal?

As Planned By Tina is a new series here on As Told By Tina, it is one that has been requested quite a bit but I just didn’t know how to start this off. Bullet Journaling is something I recently took an interest in and it has seriously changed my life. Now that I finished my first bullet journal, I feel like I can actually talk about bullet journaling. What Is a Bullet Journal? I’ve been asked this a couple times by people who don’t know what bullet journaling is. Here is how I define bullet journaling: The Bullet Journal is my life in notebook form. It helps me stay organize and I can cater it to my needs. I can add or remove things that don’t work for me. It’s a system that constantly evolves with me. It’s not just a planner but also a journal of some sorts. […]
