October Bullet Journal Spread | Warm Tones, Cosy Nights & Fairy Lights

It is finally the time of year to drink pumpkin spice lattes, burn lots of candles (sorry, polar bears) and put your jumpers on. October is one of my favourite months because I have finally got into the regular school routine and all of my clubs have started again. It is a very busy month but the evenings are rewarding with their beautiful (sometimes warm) golden hours! I love reading and writing in the late afternoon sun. The absence of rainy days is noticeable now. I can’t say I look forward to plans being cancelled but staying at home on the weekends is a treat! I often spend rainy days in the library and read book after book (not that good for my health but my mind benefits). Today I am sharing with you my first autumnal bullet journal spread. I stuck to warm, brown tones and October’s theme is fairy lights. Though simplistic, I hope you like it.

I rarely do a cover page but drawing is very therapeutic (I recommend book tube in the background). I made the fairy lights as simple as possible: just a wire with little dots in alternating colours. I was going to try doodling bulbs but that would take more hours than I wanted to spend!

My month-at-a-glance is where I document events and upcoming dates. I don’t need a lot of space to do this so I used the spare third of the page for habit trackers. So far this year I have kept up with my habit trackers; I hope that means I will fill them out this month too! I also included a master to-do list. This is where I write things that need to be done but not on a specific date (just when I have the time). I haven’t, yet, done anything with the remaining space but I might add a quote if I find a good one. The best quotes are hidden in books!

In October I am attempting a mood tracker spread. I used to use an app called Daylio but having a record offline somehow affirms my mood better. Journalling with pen on paper feels much more relieving than to write on a computer: I don’t know why! If I do fill this out daily then I will show you the end result. To add in a bit of Halloween, I made the last lantern pumpkin-shaped. Going with a full-on Halloween theme isn’t really my thing because I don’t celebrate it much. However,  pumpkin carving is a tradition!

I’m very excited for what October has to bring. In September I implemented new habits, routines and hobbies. With luck, I will finish 10 books and keep fit (sounds ambitious but I’m really going to push myself).

What are you goals for this month? How are you going to try and achieve them?

I wish you all the luck for October and thank you for reading!

  1. This has made me feel warm & fuzzy & wanting to snuggle up with a good book! Even though my body hates the cold, I do like the comfort of home in October onwards. Daylio is one I hadn’t heard of before, but I also find like you that having things tracked on paper feels more solid somehow. Very cool bullet journal for the month!

    • Well I always promote snuggling up with a good book so I’m glad this post made you feel that way! This year has gone so fast that I can hardly believe October is here. In B&M yesterday there were loads of Christmas decorations on sale 😖
      Thank you for all of your wonderful comments 🙃
