April has flown by! So it’s time for my May bullet journal spreads! It seems like a couple of days ago since I was showing my April pages!
I’m really excited for this month’s theme and I know I say that every month but it’s true. I know I always say that I love posting these posts but I do! I don’t think I’ve missed a month since I first started my blog!
Read my April post here.
So this month’s theme is peaches which I’m actually quite excited about. I saw a couple of ideas on Pinterest for it. It’s a cute yet simple theme which wasn’t too challenging for my artistic-deficient self! Also, now Summer is coming along, I thought it’d be a good idea to have a brighter theme. The orange really adds a punch of colour which I am loving! I’m not a huge fan of the bottom peach though because the yellow didn’t really work out. It looks a little odd but I’m sure we can look past that anyway!
At a glance
This spread is pretty simple this month. I decided to opt again for the smaller calendar layout because last month, I didn’t really utilise the bigger boxes. Also this month, instead of events beneath the calendar, I’ve written monthly goals. This will hopefully help me keep to them since they’re now written down and will constantly be staring me in the face! It may also not help at all but I’m really trying to be optimistic about this so I’ll keep telling myself that it will 100% work!
Study log & Dream log
I’ve put these two together as they’re both very simple spreads with the 2 peaches either side then the half peach at the bottom. I really like these spreads as I love to jot down my dreams each morning. My study log really motivates me to do more and helps me see how well I’m managing my time during the month. It’s especially important now exam time is looming. Revision should be my top priority!
Just peachy! I am quite happy with this and it was harder than it seems to draw 31 small peaches on the page! The big peach at the bottom was added. I needed something to fill the gap. I thought that it should just do it and it did. Sadly, I didn’t keep on top of my mood tracker last month but this time I’m determined to do it because I think it’s important for well-being and monthly reflection. I’m going to try and spend at least 10 minutes a day in my bullet journal this month!
Simple quote but I love the design I added. I felt like I couldn’t do peaches as it would just look odd and I’m glad I didn’t opt for it! I think the flowers look so cute and they definitely add to the Summery feel that I was wanting for the month so I’d definitely say this page is a success and may be, for the first time, my favourite spread of this month which is a change from favourites page which is ironically my usual favourite page. It feels good to finally switch it up a little.
Very simple but very practical. I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t use pretty weekly spreads because I don’t want to make a mistake on them since they’re so pretty, so, for this month, I’ve gone as basic as I can think and I really believe that this will help me use them to their full potential and will allow me to organise my life which is much needed right now! In the past these spreads have helped me plan out all my work for the day and I need to get back into that habit because I did so much better in school.
The classic! Again, this page isn’t too in-your-face and flashy and I’m not hating it. I think it has just the right amount of decoration/doodles and it’s pretty much the same layout as usual; the 4 sections and relatively plain title. I didn’t find many songs last month so my plan for this month is to venture out and listen to new artists so I can add new songs to the list.
So that’s it for this month! Please let me know your opinions in the comments as I love getting feedback on these particular posts!
