June 2020 Bullet Journal Set-Up

Hey guys! I had a bit of a delay but I’m now here with my June 2020 Bullet Journal Set-Up. We’re almost halfway through the year which is crazy! This month I went with a Nancy Drew theme, which is kind of near and dear to my heart. A couple of years ago I read all of my mom’s classic copies, and so I thought it would be a cute theme.

I used yellows and blacks through this month, and also my white gel pen, which I really love. I had some ribbon with keys on it that I was going to use, but it didn’t really fit in anywhere so I left it out. To be honest, when I starting designing the title page I had a but of bullet-journaler’s block, because there are just so many directions that I could’ve gone in, and I couldn’t decide on one! But I finally settled on some cute magnifying glass, flashlight, footprint, and key doodles, as well as some Nancy Drew silhouettes that I traced (because I can’t draw people to save my life).

In the end, I think this theme turned out really well and it was super fun to make! I got to use some card stock and get creative with my trackers, and I put together a weekly spread in a that I’ve never done before. Here it is!

My title page is a little busier than I would’ve liked, but I still think it’s cute. I traced a Nancy Drew silhouette and drew some footprints in black, and then I surrounded the whole thing with doodles. This whole month I’m doing a typewriter font, which fits the theme well and looks great! I could’t resist doing a little cursive on the quote page though. On the opposite page I have a quote from Nancy Drew;))

I went with the same sort of calendar layout that I used in May, because I don’t have a whole lot going on in June either (surprise surprise), so this spread is more efficient. Here I included some more doodles and broke out my white gel pen! I love the card stock that says “Nancy Drew Mystery Stories” in the corner.

Here we have The Case of Olivia’s Habits and Mood! Aka my habit and mood trackers. Again, I used the same layout as last month. I find that these trackers are just really easy to read and look super nice;)) This month I’m tracking some habits, productivity, sleep, and my workouts with the footprints on the side. I used some card stock again cause I love it.

I used some more Nancy-Drew-title-sounding phrases in my next couple pages, because I think it’s super cute. These are my gratitude log and brain dump. I decided to include a brain dump because sometimes I feel like I have things on my mind that I just need to get on paper, especially during this weird time. Anyways, here I can write lists, my thoughts, or anything that I need to articulate.

This weekly spread turned out kind of cool! I love the big letters that spell June in the middle, as well as all of the doodles and the cursive. I left space to write a to-do list and things I have to do for school here as well.

Hopefully these spreads give you some ideas for your own journal! I’ll see you guys on Monday;))

Yours Truly,

Olivia;))

My December Reading List

For my bonus post this week, I decided to fill you in on my reading list for December. This will probably become a monthly thing and not so much of a bonus post, but for this week it is;). Here is my must-read list this month!

  • The Trials of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy- I’m reading this book mostly because I read the first one, and when I start a series I feel compelled to finish it. It’s pretty good so far, but it’s no Life of Pi or Throne of Glass.
  • The Last 6 Nancy Drew Books; Mystery of the Glowing Eye, The Secret of the Forgotten City, The Sky Phantom, The Strange Message in the Parchment, Mystery of Crocodile Island, The Thirteenth Pearl- This Summer I started reading this series- they’re the original hardcovers, not the modern-day versions, so it’s a totally different writing style than I’m used to. I got through 50 of them, but then had to take a little break because that’s a little too much Nancy Drew even for me. It’s my goal to finish them all this year, so I might have to speed-read a little;).
  • Glass Sword-This is part of the Red Queen series. I’m hoping to get a copy for Christmas because it’s a $25 book! Anyways, if I finish the rest of the Nancy Drew than this is my back-up.

That’s my list for this month! I wish that I could’ve included more variety, but I need to finish Nancy Drew this year. Next month I promise that I’ll read a lot of good ones- I’m crossing my fingers that the next Throne of Glass book is out by then. Bye for now!
