heyyyyy! it’s mwaaaa – ellaaaa!
welcome back my retro legends! you all know what it is – another LEGENDARY monthly bullet journal setup!
this month im sure you are all super excited because it is halloween! yep, pumpkins, witches, bats, ghosts, spookyness – its pretty damn awesome 🙂 👻 🎃
so of course i had to add a little touch of halloween to my setup but i still wanted to keep it “normal”.
today’s post is also a collab which i havent done for soooo long with my lovely Elina from Just So Elina! she blogs about healthy lifestyle, wellness, bullet journalling also 🙂 + a bit of fashion too! love that gal 🙂 she is also posting her October Bujo Spread!
enough blabbering from me, lets goooo! 😇
INTRO PAGE : calendar, goals, faves, blog posts + wishlist
again, similar to my september bujo setup i have continued to layer + collage my images and old tinted ripped pages execpt i have decided to ‘experiment’ a bit more with the layout.
the colours of the theme this month include some more ‘out there combinations’ :
+ colour coded calendar
i find these really helpful to quickly see what type of events you have coming up – friends, going out, deadlines etc.
+ important of the month
this is just for some important things that i need to get done by the end of the month! school is nearly ending and lots is happening :((( *ahhh im loving the holidays*
+ HELLO OCTOBER entry (to write lol)
i wanted to make my bujo even more personal because thats what i love about bullet journalling – to record your thoughts and experiences! ❤
gotta love my goals! they really help me focus on what is important and help me set out my month!
well…you gotta treat yourself sometimes right? :)))
+ blog posts
cant forget this one! its just nice to brainstorm some post ideas and get my mind thinking about what is quality content!
+ favourites of the month
a new addition to this spread! i really love this because it captures your month in a couple of words!
this month i really wanted to focus on all the positive things happening in my life – especially my much needed holidays!
always a staple in my bujo spreads these past months and i love the idea of appreciating how lucky you are and really cherishing that! its also fun to write a little everyday!
+ positivity corner
i came up with this ideas just randomly in the moment! i was like – ” you know what? why not keep a little section to write down all the great things that are happenign in my life right now?”
i think it will be great for reminding me how lucky i am to live in australia and have such a nice family on those days when i dont feel so great 🙂
PROJECT OF THE MONTH : sewing
at school i have had sewing as a subject and i absolutely love it! the idea of making your own clothes fascinates me as these days we can just pick up a shirt for $10 and buy it. but its not the same as wearing something you’ve personalised and created yourself!
so far, i have made some EPIC (and i mean AWESOME) scrunchies! *you can have a look over on my insta* If you would like a post on how to make your own scrunchies comment below!
and my friend and i are planning to make our very own paper bag pants for spring! i chose a pretty pastel yellow! (you cant see that and neither can i lol)
and of course my to-do list/journal page for all my jobs and endless ideas! these really help set out each day well withot being too MASSIVE across the page!
SPREADS TO ADD: shown exclusively on @purely.ella
+ halloween movies/to-do
+ journal memories page
+ halloween pictures (my friend and i are going as GHOSTBSTERS!) #strangerthingsvibesssss
so that was the very beginning of my october bullet journal spread! i hope you liked it and let me know what you think of the colours and theme!
get ready for some exciting new things happening here on my blog + instagram – including some highly requested bujo posts, pen palling jazz and more of the 80s *whooo*!
i hope you enjoyed avery belated BUJO setup and if you did feel free to have a lil’ look at some of my other style spreads!
see you next sunday! peace out ✌🏼
