August Bullet Journal Spread

Sunday, 6 August 2017


Last Tuesday I had a couple of hours between going to see Dunkirk at the cinema (It was amazing, by the way) and going to a very exciting conference for the Vegan Health and Beauty brand Arbonne. So -me being me- I naturally raided all the stationary shops in town. And after spending almost an hour in Paperchase and The Works, I spotted this little gem of a notebook.

Having -finally- made my purchase I headed to the nearest Starbucks and ordered my usual venti hazelnut latte, found a quiet little corner, and thought to myself damn. I just bought a notebook, and some new sharpies, and I have no idea what I'm actually going to do with them. But then (I kid you not, this actually happened) I remembered that I had published a post AAAAAAAAGES ago listing some things that you can do with your empty notebooks

One of those things was to start a bullet journal. 

I've seen bullet journals before. Bloody heck, pretty much every blogger out there has a bullet journal, but I've never really bothered with having one of my own up until now. 

After scouring through instagram and bloglovin, I decided on the layout and theme of my bullet journal, and got to work...


Can I just say, straight up, that I am no artist at all. See that brown thing in the middle? It was meant to be a crown. Yeah, a crown. I thought it would be super cute because my name translated from Hebrew means princess, but I got the angles wrong (goodness knows how) and it reaaally didnt work out for me.


I've seen a lot of people put really cute inspirational quotes on their bullet journals, but when I was looking for quotes I found this gem; "work hard... or you'll have to be a stripper" And I laughed so hard that I couldn't not put it in!! I think I'll carry on the theme of just having semi-inspirational, fully funny quotes... at least for this month. 



Another thing that I really liked the idea of was having a sleep and food tracker. For the sleep tracker I just used the data that's on my iphone, because it's probably the most accurate I'm going to get. I think it'll be interesting to compare the rest and nutrients I get on the days I'm working, and the days I'm not.



Recognising the beauty in every little achievement has become a bit of a blogger mantra lately, but I really do think it's super important to do so! Breakfast has always been a bit of an uphill battle for me- I'm not a big fan of breakfast foods, and eating before 10am makes me feel queasy... but I know it's the most important meal of the day, so I hope this will encourage me to eat breakfast more. 



What do you think?

Adios, xo

    1. Thank you so much Jenny! Your time really couldn't me better spent in my opinion... I'd say don't worry about your bujo being picture perfect; I've had the most fun mucking around with my own scabby layouts- that's the best part of it!
