November Bullet Journal Set-Up with October Monthly Recap

Hi guys! I’m super excited for this month’s theme, and had sooo much fun setting it up! I’m doing poppies, and using a couple different shades of red. However, I’m going for more of a scrapbookish look, since I found an amazing paper pad with tons of poppy designs in it. Hope you like it!

Here’s my October Monthly Recap. The gold is just so pretty and compliments everything really well;))

So this is my title page for November! I hand drew a lot of poppies, but cut some out from my paper pad as well. I also used some washi tape and a ripped-paper effect for extra pizazz.

My calendar spread turned out super pretty as well;) I used paper on the corners this time, so that looks cool. I’m also loving the look of writing on white paper and cutting it out to paste it in my journal.

This really cool black and white poppy paper is a feature in my trackers section! I LOVE IT! I’m also doing something different for my mood tracker this month; I’ll be using a bar graph format. The higher the bar, the better my mood.

I decided that I did need a blog planner next to my gratitude log;) It will help me stay more organized when it comes to posting.

I only included two days in my first weekly spread, so I covered the other half of the page with more poppy paper. I’ll probably turn the page opposite this one into a quote page.

That’s all for now! I love how these spreads turned out, and I’m having lots of fun playing around with my pretty papers and washi tapes. See you later!

October Bullet Journal Set-Up with September Monthly Recap

Hi guys! I figured that it was about time to post my October bullet journal set-up, considering that it’s the last day of September;) My October theme is magic, but not Harry Potter style magic, more of a crystal ball, full moon kind of magic. I used two shades of purple, as well as metallic gold and silver gel pens for the magical sparkles that are scattered around the pages. I’m super glad with the way that this month turned out, especially because my calligraphy is on point! I also got to use a bunch of cute quotes about the future this month. Do you know how hard it is to find quotes about the ocean that are cute and not too long? Really hard! Also, drawing waves on every page last month was a little time consuming, even if it looked really pretty. Anyways, here’s my October set-up;)))

This is my monthly recap;)) I’m going to miss the blues!

This is my October title page! The focal point is the crystal ball, around which I drew some really cute magical doodles. I used a can of chickpeas to trace a perfect circle for the crystal ball- chickpeas are just awesome in every way! The gold, silver and purple work really nicely together on this page and my writing turned out great:)))

I messed up the order of the days on the calendar, so I had to black them out and rewrite them in silver. But it’s okay, it looks good that way! I decided not to include a blog planner this month, because I found I wasn’t using it. Although I did keep my goals section and write a good quote.

One thing that I haven’t changed this year is my habit tracker, and that’s because I just find it very easy to look at and use. However, I do like playing around with my mood trackers, and this month I used a crystal ball format. I’m also really into the look of drawing a border around my pages; I just think it lends something interesting to the spread.

Next, as per usual, is my gratitude log and quote page. Crystal balls are the focal point of both;) The future is bright, my friends!

Finally, here’s my first weekly spread of the month. I’ve actually never done a spread like this before, but I saw one like it on AmandaRachLee’s youtube channel, and so I thought I’d give it a try. It looks so good! And I love the amount of space that it gives me to plan my week!

That’s my set-up for October! It’s hard to believe that I only have three more months left with this journal. I’ve been loving the Leuchtturm 1917 journal because it has just the right amount of smooth, good sized pages, two book marks and a pocket in the back. Plus, it’s pretty reasonably priced. I think that I’m going to use another one of these next year as well. Have a good week you guys!

September Bullet Journal Set-Up with August Monthly Recap

Hey people;) Summer has finally come to an end, which means that it’s time to set up my September bullet journal. I set up a poll on Instagram to see which colours that you guys wanted me to use this month, and the majority chose blues. So I’m doing an ocean theme for September! I used a mix of wavy designs and seashell doodles to make a beautiful spread. Hope you guys like it!

First, here’s my August Monthly Recap. It turned out really nicely;)

This is my title page! Splitting it along the diagonal gives it a unique feel. I love how the waves look, and the seashells and jellyfish look super cute. On the opposite page I wrote a quote saying “Seas the Day”.

I think that my calendar looks great as well. The font that I used this month was kind of a curly handwriting, which is more of a playful nautical style. As usual, I have spots for writing down my goals and blog ideas on the side.

I absolutely LOVE my habit and mood trackers this month! The doodles are just so pretty! I’ll colour in each seashell according to the legend at the bottom. I didn’t number my habit tracker, but I don’t really think that I need to.

Next I have a gratitude log and a quote page. I especially like the way that the quote page looks, with the frame going through the waves.

Last but not least, the first weekly spread of the month. Now that school is starting, I’m going to be doing a lot more double-paged spreads so I have more room to write things down.

There’s my September spreads! Moving into the school year, I think that I’m going to continue to post three times a week, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It’ll be a challenge to keep up, but I really enjoy creating new content for you guys.

Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!

Yours Truly,

February 2019 Bullet Journal Set-Up (With January Monthly Recap)

Hi again! After much careful consideration, I was able to come up with a fun bullet journal theme for February. I wanted to do something a little different than roses or hearts, but still related to Valentine’s day. So this month my theme is Hot Air Balloons! I think that hot air balloons are pretty romantic so it fits in with the whole love thing. They’re easy to draw but you can have a ton of fun with different patterns. My January monthly recap is also featured in this post, and it looks a little different from the ones I did last year due to the fact that I have more space, so I’m pretty excited about that too. Let’s get into my spreads!

Here we have my January Recap/Memories/Reflection. I wanted space to really reflect at the end of the month about what’s going on in my life, and also somewhere to paste any cool pictures of events that went on. The monthly recap section is similar to last year’s, but I added some things like workout progress and a space to write down which books I read, because I didn’t add it in at the beginning of my journal. Looking back, I might need to expand that in the future because I read, like, a lot of books. So yeah, I guess I’ll see how that goes and I might tweak it a bit in February.

Here’s my title page;) I love the way it turned out because it’s so bright and airy and feminine, which is cute for February. In addition to drawing a few hot air balloons, I also included some simple clouds and birds to fill the empty space. The colours that I used are a light pink marker and my light blue zebra mildliner. My quote for the month is “Oh, The Places You’ll Go”, which fits the hot air balloon theme and reminds me that this month I want to be more adventurous.

This is my calendar layout- I apologize for all of the blacked-out events. I always forget to take a picture of my spreads before I write in them! Anyways, I continued the clouds, birds and balloons in this spread, but in the background so that it looks like the calendar is floating in the sky. I also gave myself a bigger space to write my goals and plan blog posts, because I almost ran out of space last month.

These are my trackers for the month. I kept my habit tracker the same, because I find it quick to draw and it works pretty well for me. I switched up my mood tracker a bit though; every day I’ll colour in a portion of the balloon according to the legend on the side. Light pink means I was really happy and dark blue means I had an off day. I tried to make these two spreads cohesive and look like they’re in the same sky, and I think it worked well.

Here’s my gratitude log, which also didn’t change much from last month. On the opposite side, however, I made space for a Workout Tracker and Brain Dump. It’ll be nice to keep track of the weight that I’m squatting, pressing and curling, and also which days that I did cardio. As for the brain dump, last month felt like I needed to write random things down, so I decided to try it. I might move to a full page next month if I need more room.

And lastly my first weekly spread. Because I have the space I decided to only do two days in this spread so that I can start on a Sunday the following week. On the right is a quote page that says, “Once you have tasted the taste of sky, you will forever look up.” from Leonardo Da Vinci.

That’s all for February! I’ll keep my Instagram, mydayisbooked_24, updated throughout the month with new weekly spreads. See you next week!:)))
