And it’s now November! This month has arrived so so quickly. I am really happy with this months spreads though so I can’t wait to show you. My first ever bullet journal post was a November bullet journal post!
Now if you read that one, you’ll see how far I’ve come with both my bullet journal and writing style! I was so shook to see how my spreads used to look then compared to now!
I’m super happy with my theme this month! It’s quite simple but those types of themes are definitely better for me.
The colours are super autumnal and it’s nice to go for a common theme every once in a while. Personally, I love to see how people adopt themes and make them their own.
Because of the filter, the green leaves look vibrant but in person they’re more khaki so they do fit the theme.
I’m also really proud of my lettering here! I feel like it’s improved so much since I started my journal.
I used pencil crayons for my monthly spread and I think you can definitely tell! The colours are a lot less vibrant.
As you can see, I haven’t set my goals for this month yet but they’ll definitely be done soon! I also don’t have any events planned as of yet.
To be honest, due to my uni being in Lancashire, I’m not sure I will have events! Nevertheless, it’s a cute spread to flick past every day!
(Truth be told, I did already draw this spread but did the calendar wrong so I had to rip the page out, oops-)￼
In case you couldn’t tell, I overestimated how much space I had when starting this spread. As you can see, as we get to the bottom, they start to get closer together.
I have 5 moods this month so I can a bit more specific. The middle is for when my day goes from good to bad or bad to good. This happened quite often last month and I didn’t know what emotion to fill it as!
Again, I like the title for this spread. It’s very simple but effective, the goes for the whole spread to be honest.
So a few more habits to keep track of this month! Usually I do 4, but I’ve been keeping up with them pretty well so added 2 more for this month!
My new ones are gratitude and no spend! I kept on top of my gratitude spread pretty well through October so I thought I’d keep it up for this month.
No spend is a big one for me as I always end up spending money, even just a little bit every day! It’s not good at all for my bank account and I’d like to have some saved up to treat myself and my family.
I think most of the cutting back will be on snacks, that’s definitely where most of my money goes! They are healthy snacks but sometimes I just eat them because they’re there so I’m always buying more!
As you can see, I had space at the bottom so I added a small motivational quote!
This month, as you can see, I went for double page weekly spreads.
Since going back to uni, my to-do lists are getting longer so it’ll be good to have more space to write my tasks! It also allows me to add more structure to my day.
By having double page spreads, I can add times to the tasks I have. Usually I don’t do this as I never stick to it but I can have it as a rough guideline so I’m not losing my head and struggling to fit everything in!
Since it was a full spread, I cut the notes section short so I could add leaves. This made it more cohesive with the theme so I’m really glad I did do that!
And once again, the gratitude is back! I found it surprisingly easy to write a sentence every day as to why I was grateful. There’s so many things to be grateful for!
Like last month’s bullet journal, I wanted to keep this spread pretty simple. It’s going to be pretty busy with all the writing so I want the decorations to be simple so it doesn’t look messy.
The title is nice and simple but it’s bold and in a rusty orange colours that is so autumnal! Then, at the bottom, I filled the space with fall-coloured dots.
This idea is one of my favourites for the month as it looks like autumnal confetti!
So that’s it for this months bullet journal post! I loved this theme but I’m so excited for next month where I’ll 100% be doing a Christmas themed bullet journal!
