My June Bullet Journal Set-Up!

Hello, beautiful people and welcome to a throwback Friday! Well, not really – we’re throwing it back to when I used to do regular bullet journal posts, but that’s about it. Since being in social isolation, your girl has been living her best creative life. I’ve been sewing, painting, crafting and- eating way too much UberEats. But we move!

So, June. Boy, oh boy, have I got some feelings about June. Firstly, I cut myself bangs. The phrases “good idea” and “smart decision” may not be applicable . . . but it was decisive. We did a damn thing. And I think that’s a good start to the month; June is the month of doing. I’m speaking it into existence.

I bought some new, bright washi tape back in May that was the inspiration behind this spread. It’s bold, patterned and warm. As much as pastel seems to be the go for journal spreads at the moment, I love the way a bright colour makes me feel when I open the page.

One thing I’ve really missed about regular journalling is setting and tracking goals. Sometimes I feel like my brain is bursting with ideas and plans and I get so excited and motivated  . . . only to slowly forget them all and feel like utter trash. (Not to mention, vaguely confused as to why I bought a glue gun and a bunch of buttons? Can anyone else figure out their purpose? Because I am baffled.)

Setting goals is a great way for me to sit down with myself and say “Mia, this is the shit we want to get done. Please.”.

I’ve got some really exciting projects and crafts coming up – and a big ole’ plant tour too. Your girl’s not only a temporary puppy mummy, I’m also a permanent plant one!

I kept my monthly title page pretty simple this time round because . . . well, honestly because I didn’t need anything else.

For the first weekly spread of June, I got out the watercolours and painted a little dutch door set-up. It was entirely unnecessary other than for the purpose of being pretty cute. But cute it was! I really like how the cloud-ish pattern flows from one page to another.

If you remember my Flickthrough My 2020 Bullet Journal (So Far!) post, you may already be aware of my obsession with dutch doors. I don’t know why I love them so much, but Pinterest really convinced me. I might do another post on ways to spice up your journals and, if I do, I can all but guarantee that will be in them.

(And if you don’t remember, well, how conveniently placed this little video is!)

So that’s my first weekly spread! Honestly, I don’t know if these are completely necessary for me anymore. My life is pretty routine; I go into work 5 days a week, have college 2 days a week and generally have weekly goals I assign to . . . well, whenever I get to them.

That said, I probably have this attitude because the paper quality of my journal is shit and part of me wants to use it as infrequently as possible, lest ruining past designs. Deep sigh.

The last spread I have created (so far!) is my June Blog Goals Spread. Oh, I know – the intrigue, the mystery! You’re hanging onto the edge of your seats thinking “wow, what on earth could her goals possibly be?”.

Well – let me not tell you. That would be giving away the goods (and easy content) too soon. I shall do a separate and more detailed post on that next week. I’m actually quite excited to start posting about my blog goals again; it keeps me accountable for them . . . and also makes me set them. Which I’ve not been doing. Anyhow.

And that’s a wrap, lovelies! Thanks for dropping in and checking out what’s going on in my journal. If you guys like bullet journalling, make sure you’re following my journalling board on Pinterest!

Hopefully June is going to be a great month for all of you! What did you guys think of these spreads? What are your June goals? Let me know your thoughts down below!

Peace,

  1. One of my June goal was to enjoy my birthday and hell yeah I did 😍 Beautiful journal pages! You are always so creative. I also love pastel colours. They really are so calming

  2. First of all your journal looks amazing!! Secondly, I am the SAME in that I have days where I am full of ideas and creativity juices are flowing and then I forget them all because I didn’t write them all down. I look forward to seeing your blog goals 🙂 Also my goals are just keeping up with my fitness, continue my maintenance tasks for my blog and just read more! Have a good month hun xx

  3. How you manage to make every single spread of yours look that damn good is impossible to me and um…lol don’t think I missed it – please let me know when your new DJ hobby takes off because you know I’ll be front and centre xx

      1. Girl, my DJing starts and begins with making a playlist on Spotify, and fighting anyone who tries to change the songs I’ve queued before they’re done, but I wish!! x

  4. I love your dedication to warm and bright shades of orange, it’s so refreshing! Also saw ‘do manifestations’ in your list and that’s definitely piqued my interest. I’ve recently transformed a diary for all my “occult” hobbies, and I’ve been thinking of giving manifestations a go.
    Looking forward to the plant tour and everything! Hope June goes well for you xx

    1. ooooo, i highly recommend manifesting – it’s crazy how much that shit works! I’m sure there’s some ultra-logical psychology behind it that completely goes over my head, but I consider it everyday magic. I hope June’s a great month for you too lovely xx

  5. What a throwback! I remember when you used to post monthly bullet journal spreads and now it has been forever… welcome back!! Still on your A-game I see. I love the paint sample tiles on your title page for your blogging goals – I used to collect them from B&Q when I was a kid because I loved all the colours. xx

    1. Right?? Vintage Mia lol. Thank you so much lovely lady! And duuuude I was the exact same – remember when paint sample DIYS were all the range a few years ago? I can see why!xx

  6. Great set-up! I love the use of colour, so summery and bright. I’m absolutely obsessed with washi tape, I have to restrain myself from using it on every page 😂

  7. AH, I absolutely love your dedication to all these warm and bright shades of orange, and as always, your bullet journal is so pleasing to the eye! Also saw “do manifestations” on your to-do list and I’m intrigued! I recently revamped a diary for my “occult” hobbies, and I’m toying around with the idea of manifestations as well!
    Loved this post xx

  8. Your bullet journal is so pretty! I use mine as my blog planner and don’t spend anywhere near enough time making the pages pretty. I love the washi tape, I need some more in my life to up my game with my pages. x
