Hello and welcome to another look into my bullet journal. The past month has been fun breaking in my new one. The pages are starting to fill in nicely and it isn’t looking so pristine anymore. This month, like last month, I wanted to try a new weekly layout and a few new spreads I felt like they layouts I had worked well in theory and in some cases, but some of them were just not as practical. So, without further delay, here is what I did for the month of June! Wow, June already.

Here is my dashboard page, this month I decided to to a more horizontal layout to my calendar. Last month I tried a vertical layout and while it looked cool, but it wasn’t really practical for what I needed it to do. So, I changed it up to this. I also am using art that is from Plant Based Bride, who I have been following for some time. Her stuff is just amazing. I decided to print it on kraft colored printer paper this month to warm up my bujo a bit.
Th8is month I decided to take about my pages a day spread, I did like no reading in May, well a lot less than I have been so far this year. I just didn’t like how it looked without being so filled in. I kept my TBR list about the same and then added monthly goals. On the right side I added a social media planner of sorts just to keep track of it a bit better. In May I forgot to write a few posts on time and they were a bit late and I was not too please with myself. I also decided to try this reading tracker and just mark the days I read, almost like a habit tracker.
This month I decided to take a book out of Books with Chloe reading journal and track my reading for the monthly by printing out little pictures of book covers and gluing them in my bujo. I doodled a few shelves for them and hopefully there will be a few here. I also put another piece of art from the same author above. I really loved the feel of these pieces it gives me a roman feel.
On the right is another piece from Plant Based Bride, I wanted to keep this spread pretty blank. On the right is going to be a picture of this months oracle card for my to reflect upon. I did not pick it yet so I left it blank. I am just going to scan it and print it out and then doodle my thoughts around it as them come throughout the month.
Now, here is the weekly layout I am giving a try this month. This spread is taken from Shayda Campbell. I really liked how this weekly spread focused on a reflecting on ones week. In her adaptation she put a place for a good memory, miles or km run I think, and really structured the reflection more than I personally wanted to. So, I took her idea and just left it open for myself to just do as I pleased. I also noticed at this point in time I don’t need a box for each day of the weekend and I can just join them together.
Also, this month I decided I wanted to take part in a low key readathon and I really saw a ton of great ones, huge thanks to those who let me know over on twitter! I ended up picking the FeelGoodathon. I liked that you could either follow reading prompts or self care prompts for this readathon and the fact it is two weeks. If you want more information you can check out their twitter here: @feelgoodathon. I decided since it was a readathon I wanted to track my pages a bit at this point or maybe just the books read each day. I figured I would put both here and not pressure myself to write both if I didn’t feel like it, which I feel like goes well with this readathon.
What theme are you using this month?
What do you have planned for June?
