D 🍩N U T S Bullet Journal Setup | October 2019 Plan With Me

Come plan with me and see how I set up my bullet journal for October 2019 with a fun and delicious donut theme!

I thought this theme would be really fun because, even if you’re like me and don’t have a huge sweet tooth, it’s a lot of fun to pick and color lots of different topping and flavors for these donuts. Or maybe you’re like me and have a favorite sweet-and-savory flavor, like maple bacon!

There are lots of weekly spreads to play with this month, and I included a mix of sweet and simple, and more involved layouts. I love how they all came out, and can’t wait to put them to use :)

This month, in addition to a cover page, a monthly calendar, and weekly layouts, I also thought this theme was the perfect one to play around with some donut trackers. I created a classic pink donut box for my habit trackers and then drew a sprinkled eclair for a mood tracker. These will be so fun to fill in throughout the month!

To take full advantage of this gorgeous early fall weather, I brought my supplies outdoors and set up my journal on the balcony! It was great to have a change of scenery, and I hope you’ll get outside to work on your journal too! Sometimes a new environment is exactly what you need to get those creative juices flowing.

✈️🌎4 Travel Spread Ideas for your Bullet Journal | Travel Wishlist, Planning, and Recording

Hello everyone! Can you believe that summer is almost over?? Have you been busy with travels this year, or do you have some coming up for the fall and holiday season, or maybe you’re already dreaming of the trips you want to take next year? If you have a bit of a wanderlust spirit, or just love to stay organized for traveling, today’s video will be perfect for you!

I’ll be showing you four ideas for travel layouts in your bullet journal, which will help you brainstorm your travel wishlist, prepare for upcoming trips, and then have a place to document them once they're done.

The first layout is a page to brainstorm the places you want to go, like a travel bucket list or wishlist. I separated this page into four categories: day trips, weekend trips, within the country, and international. I think it’s very helpful to do this thinking and organizing before planning any trips because you can see all the places laid out and it helps you to prioritize which trips are most important to you.

It’s also very helpful to have ideas for shorter trips. I find myself overlooking all the great places I can go in just a day or a weekend, and whenever a day off comes up, it’s great to have a list of ideas for things to do rather than wasting that time dreaming about a trip that I can’t take yet!

Once you have your trip scheduled, you’ll need to do some planning! Planning for an upcoming trip is always SO much fun, and I think building that excitement and anticipation is just as important as the actual trip. And what could be better than putting it all on a pretty layout?

For this layout, I created an illustrated desk with pads and pieces of paper for each section. I stuck with a monochromatic color scheme to tie everything together.

Then I created one more option with this idea, but drew some suitcases and bags and used blue as my accent color for a slightly different theme! That just goes to show that can take this idea and personalize it in many different ways!

For my final page idea, I have this travel documentation page that I started in the beginning of this year, which has a bunch of polaroids that I left blank. As the year went on and I took a few trips, I’ve been filling in the boxes with little illustrations that remind me of each trip. I have a couple filled in right now, and will be filling in more over the next few months, so make sure to follow me over on Instagram @michelleyuen_ to see how this page progresses!

I hope these ideas will help you get excited for a bit of travel, whether it’s a short day trip or a weeks-long international adventure, or that it inspired you to do some doodling! Both are so good for the soul :)

If you have any upcoming trips that you’re excited about, leave me a comment below telling me about it!

September 2019 BUJO SETUP | Shadow Dancers | Plan With Me

Come plan with me and see how I set up my bullet journal for September 2019 with a "shadow dancer" theme!

I thought it would be nice to do something different from my usual food and flower themes, so this month’s illustrations are based on an Instagram account I follow, @paperfashion. I love her abstracted dancer figures, which she has coined “shadow dancers.”

In my video, I’ll show you how I set up my cover page, monthly calendar, weekly spreads, and a couple of bonus layouts!

August 2019 Weekly Spreads 🍑 Bullet Journal Setup Pt. 2

This is part 2 of August 2019's bullet journal setup with summery peaches theme! I'll show you 4 different weekly spreads to keep you productive all month long!

I always like to show a mix of different weekly spread layouts because everything works for each person differently. Plus, it’s fun to mix it up and experiment so that I can discover new layouts that I love, while playing with colors and art supplies :)

I just love those orange and blue colors together. Looking at them in my journal makes me so happy!

Make sure to watch the video for a full tutorial of the spreads!

🍑 August Bullet Journal Setup | Plan With Me with Free Printable

So I know that this month’s theme can be a little… raunchy given the new meaning the 🍑 emoji now has online 😅😅 But what can I say? I love a little bit of controversy and I definitely LOVE fresh, juicy … PEACHES, ok? Get your head out of the gutter, man!

I went all out with the illustration and coloring this month, covering my pages with different drawings of peaches and shading them in with pastel pencils (you can also use colored pencils for this). I really, really love the effect of a mix of an illustrative and a graphic look.

I turned my cover illustration into a free printable. You can sign up for my free email newsletter here to get the download link.

Other pages I included this month are a gratitude log, a “favorites” page for me to fill in at the end of the month, a goals page (one of the four journaling ideas from my last video), and a braindump page.
