My Bullet Journal! (But not really)

Hello lovely readers! From next week (27th August) I will be posting on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. It will only be three times a week because I start back at school next Wednesday (send help)! I have a short back to school series coming up next week, and I know that a lot of you have already started school, so I’m sorry if this is a bit late, but we have school 10 months a year so the posts could work any time!

Today however, I’m going to share with you my “Bullet Journal”. Now when I say bullet Journal, it’s not really a bullet Journal, but I’m not sure what else to call it! I don’t log my life and plan out my week in it but I kind of just write about productivity, quotes etc. and I find a lot of inspiration from Pinterest, which you’ll understand from the pictures below. I’m going to share my favourite pages from it, hope you enjoy!

I use this cute little notebook to write everything in, I’m not sure where it’s from but I love it!

This is my favourite quote of all time: “Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground” – Teddy Roosevelt

On the page beside it I have some random productivity ideas/what to do when you’re bored! I like to experiment with different styles of font, and I quite like how this one turned out!

Now this page gets me very excited for Autumn/fall! I wrote my favourite things to do at this time of year and the fox at the bottom makes me so happy! (Gossip girl thanksgiving episodes are a must, anyone else?)

I really like the effect of the page on the right with only a couple of leaves coloured in, and I think it compliments the fall page quite well!

This double page spread is all about my travel list. I wrote it a while ago, and can now say that I’ve been to Venice (it was worth it)! I’m also hopefully going to a couple of these places next year to tick some more off the list. I liked the idea of sign posts and experimented with different shapes arrows and shapes.

These pages are a couple of my more recent ones. These are really good pick me ups for when I feel sad, I wrote all of the songs that make me the happiest so I can play them when I need a good cheering up!

I really like how the writing and layout turned out on the feeling down page, it’s simple but also quite satisfying to look at (?!)

I saw a lot of things like this on Pinterest, I think it’s an actual page inside ‘Wreck this Journal’, but I decided to DIY my own, using the word love. You have to write one word over and over and some people created some amazing stuff, I saw one where someone drew the Harry Potter characters using 1 word! Mine isn’t the neatest, but I quite like the way it turned out anyway!

I thought that I would finish off my favourite pages with this quote, “You have so much love in your heart. Give some to yourself.” It’s so true and I think that all of us need to hear that. We are so harsh on ourselves but are able to love other people with our whole hearts but we have enough to love ourselves too!

Thank you for reading! Do you bullet Journal/do whatever the heck this is?

Love, CoffeeeAndCream x

      1. Not really but I quite like the pens I have from ikea, you can see them above the notebook in all of the photos. They’re really good because I can write almost calligraphy with thicker and thinner lines, it makes a nice effect! x

  3. I love journal ideas like this! Having a journal or vision board definitely helps me to stay motivated and positive. I recently purchased a “panda planner” it has sections for daily tasks and motivational sections. Great post! I would love to see if you have a vision board.
