I Have A BuJo Spread I Actually Love? // My October 2019 Plan With Me (Moon Phase)

October is coming, and with that, so does my October bujo set up.

Oh my god someone stop this girl.

Since I don’t want to be posting my BuJo plan with me’s in the middle of the month constantly, I’ve decided to have a more normal posting schedule and post it before the next month starts!

Let’s see how this is gonna work, lmao.

I’m actually so excited for October and really loved my bujo setup this month, and I hope you do too!

COVER PAGE(S)

So my theme this month is an all blank and white moon phase theme set up! I think most of you who read my BuJo setups (thank you to those who do, I love you <3) know that I love AmandaRachLee’s bujo set ups. I was planning to do an astrology theme for this month, but I ended not doing it for two reasons: 1) my accent colour for that would have been gold, which was my accent colour last month, 2) I adored her set up, 3) moon phases are ~kind of~ linked to astrology? It’s a bit of a stretch, but we’ll make it work. I just love how this title page turned out and I just love the effect of white on black.

MONTHLY CALENDAR

Aesthetically, this was a bit of a mix for me. While the straight lines and the minimal calendar makes me so happy (also, the sparkles), the October lettering is so narrow and ugly to me. I wish I planned that out better, but other than that, I really like how this spread turned out, and I can’t wait to use it.

BRAIN DUMP

20190929_1059591772984537.jpg

This is probably my most used spread in the whole month. I find brain dumps so useful, and I just love the moons, stars and the white-on-black effect. This isn’t my favourite brain dump of all time, but it’s good.

Unfortunately, this is a spread I’ve been too busy to fill out, but I actually need to use this because it’s so pretty! I just realised I forgot to draw out the playlist things, and right now my mood is the facepalm emoji. Well, love that for me.

WEEKLY SPREAD

20190929_1100091378328563.jpg

This was a lot harder to do since my notebook is a spiral-bound notebook, but I think it turned out fairly well? The bottom is for my weekly overview/next week things/notes, which I forgot to label, and I tried to highlight the day’s heading with grey after I took this photo, but it barely shows up anyway and I don’t like the grey that much anyway.

PART II: READING BUJO MONTHLY SET UP

I mean, we all know what to expect at this point with these set ups. Thank goodness the lighting was significantly better than last month’s set up, and I’m so glad that it turned out okay/well!

COVER PAGE + MONTHLY LOG

Not to be repetitive, but goodness do I love the black and white motif! I think this spread turned out quite well, but this spread is just so useful and pretty. I’m probably going to use the bottom space on the right hand page for recording down new releases or blog posts I publish. I don’t know yet.

BOOKS I READ IN OCTOBER + WHAT I READ IN OCTOBER

20190929_111133681995313.jpg

Goodness, do I love looking back at all the books I read! This is a necessary spread and it’s just so interesting. I’m just a sucker for statistics and all that, and I just love this kind of things so so much. Also, it lets me do all the colour coding (which I am Trash for) so …

AUGUST TBR + MY TBR/READING TRACKER

20190929_173033824839956.jpg

Can you tell I like trackers?  The only reason why I haven’t drawn up any books on the TBR shelf is because, well, I haven’t figured out my October TBR yet, which I need to do ASAP. The TBR trackers on the right are actual lifesavers that I love. And since I had a lot of space at the bottom right page, I wrote the word ‘moonchild’ in calligraphy since it was in my other bujo spread, and it ties the whole thing fairly well together, in my opinion.

READALONGS & READATHONS + BRAIN DUMP

20190929_173038792215444.jpg

My reading spreads are so repetitive at this point, but yeah. The calligraphy was pretty good in this one, imo. Also, let me know of any October readathons happening, especially in the second half of October! Thanks so much ❤

SEPTEMBER READING NOTES

20190929_17305123794344.jpg

Ah, the spread that I DEPEND on for my recent reads post! I think the white on black effect is SO cute and it (thankfully) showed up on the paper so well! I really hope I update these on time and don’t fall behind, because that is not a nice feeling, frankly.

That’s all for October! For once, I’m so happy about how it turns out, and the result pleasantly surprised me. The black and white and the astrology effect and the moon? YES.

Do YOU bullet journal or want to? Bloggers, do you do monthly plan with me posts? If so, link me to them, because I need to see all your gorgeous spreads (and let my eyes have a visual treat!). What was your favourite (or least favourite) spread? Do you prefer a minimal or a more artsy style in bullet journaling?

  1. Loooove the black and white! So simple and yet so perfect for October and all the spookiness (even though astrology is not inherently spooky)… for some reason I think it totally works!

  2. Oh, I love the moon theme!! I’m a big fan of anything astronomical like moon, planets, and stars, so these are such lovely and calm spreads 🥰 This definitely makes me want to journal a bit, even though I’m not the best at it 😄
