March is here and even though I wanted to continue on with my full on mountain theme that I’ve been sticking to, I decided to make the cover page and the overall feel just a touch more Autumn vibes. This means that I incorporated a lot more yellow tones as the key feature to the spreads this month.
As you can see in the spreads I used yellow as the primary colour and decided to use some floral tape that matched to add to the ascetic over the free leafy tape I’ve been predominately using.
I also minimised my pages this month and went for my calendar page, tracking page, TBR page and A reading log.
I am really happy with how this months theme turned out!
We are back with another Bullet Journal Spread. I kept things pretty consistent from January as I found that I used them and I liked all of them.
I went with another nature kind of theme from mountains to a cabin (that is definitely located in the mountains) I added a touch of pink for Valentines day but didn’t want to go for an entirely pink theme.
For the calendar spread I wanted to go for seperated squares with some shadowing and start from the first day of the month and end on the last instead of using up space with additional squares.
One of my favourite and what I find to be the most useful spreads are my trackers.
I track my sleep, mood and stress up the top to allow comprison between each month.
I then track my (loose) internittent fasting and on the other page I track things that I am eating and doing i.e. exercise.
the next pages are my instagram post schedule and my To Be Read page (lets please ignore the ink splodge – I am so annoyed)
My last double pages are my reading tracker which this month is Scamp themed and my reading log. On the last page I plan to use as a monthly review.
My new addition this month is a journal page. January was a bit of a rough month and I’ve found myself reflecting.
I wanted to have a space to write these reflections so that I can look back on them in the future.
‘Bullet’ Journaling is something that I only began doing in the latter part of 2019. I was struggling to find a way to track the things I wanted to track -pretty much all reading related – as well as a place to have my thoughts complied.
The Journal I used in 2019 was one that I purchased in Japan a couple of years ago.
I couldn’t think of the best way to do this because if I explained all the spreads then this would be a hell of a long post so I’m going to just touch on a few key pages…
I found these little ‘Book Read’ pages really helpful for each month. Just a quick spot to put down when I completed a book and the rating I gave them.
The challenge was I always forgot to check back here when I posted my review and my rating probably changed.
I LOVED doing my TBR this way!
Its so fun, I absolutely love being able to go over the lines with a different colour once I’ve completed the book.
I continued this in 2019 and have kicked off 2020 doing the same thing.
This was the spread I created for the Triwizard Tournament Readathon. I might of gone a little over the top but I’m really happy with how it all turned out.
Overall, I learnt a lot about journalling during 2019 and I cannot wait to continue to try some new things in 2020!
The band wagon arrived and I jumped straight on! I feel like its super common now for people that read a lot to also have a bullet journal for their reading. I’ve decided that I would also like to be one of those people and have just started my own bullet journal!
Here are the pages I’ve created for October. First up, what will be my TBR page for the month.
I went for a fall pumpkin theme even though here in Australia its Spring.
My next two pages are trackers to track how many days I go without buying a book or ordering Uber Eats, because I have a problem!
My next page is to list and rate the books I read throughout October.
My final tracker for the month is to track what type of reading I do each day weather that be physical reading, listening to an Audiobook or both.
So I didn’t go to crazy with the amount of pages and trackers I created for this month just to make it realistic in terms of making sure I feel things out every day as well as testing out what pages work for me!
What pages are your must haves for your bullet journal?
