Plan With Me: My July Set Up

July 12, 2018

Hey guys, sorry this one is late, I genuinely had lost complete track of time last month and before I knew it July was here. So I literally had to scramble a monthly spread together in 2 days. Fellow bujo creators probably know that horrible daunting feeling when you wanted to create something amazing but just don't have the time!




So this month's spread was super simple and fast and will be very easy for you to recreate, I promise August's one will be way more beautiful and creative!



I wanted the main page to be bold and simple so I went for this polaroid theme as I thought it was fairly simple but still looked super cute. Inside all of the photographs, I just doodled things that made me feel summery and warm. Then on the opposite page is my monthly calendar, this turned out such a mess because I tried to cram it all on to one page and I also messed up on the days. I think I'm going to revert back to my double page versions next month so to keep it less messy.



My next 2 pages are all about my social media and my blog. The first page is where I can track my growth and blog views over each week of the month. I changed this to a full page spread so I can track each week so this way I can tell what posts help my growth and which lower it! Then the second page is just a brain dump so I can throw down any blog post or YouTube video ideas that pop into my mind throughout the day. 

(Which reminds me to mention if you guys ever want me to create anything or review something then do leave comments down below and I'll try my hardest to do so).



I then went straight into my weekly spreads, I kept this super simple this month to as you can see. I literally just split the page into quarters and wrote down the dates. Then I have my water tracker in the bottom corner along with anything I need to do next week. I try to drink 5 bottles of water every day but as you can clearly tell especially if you looked at my June spread that rarely happens. I am just so addicted to ice latte's and lemonades at the moment I actually need help. Again this is super simple and easy to recreate if you're bullet journalling in a rush like I was! On my last weekly page, I left a space at the bottom to write down any unfinished tasks so that I can try to get them done in August!



Next, we have my habit tracker page, I've actually been really enjoying using separate little trackers for each thing rather than one whole big one. I find it so much easier to work with and when by the end of the month it's so much simpler to see what habit's I slacked on throughout the month. My habits stay the same every month but I'm thinking about changing it up a bit next month as some of them just aren't that useful to me anymore.



I then have my expenses page, which is super simple the same as my last spread. Just three columns for the date, the description and then the amount I spent on that thing. This is probably just the same standard spread that you see all over the internet for this page, maybe I'll try and spruce it up next month but this style is just so practical and simple! 

Leave a currency sign or emoji down in the comments if you think I should try spice it up next month.



My last page is my most hated page of the month, this is my mood tracker for the month. I wanted to try out this sentence/mood a day style page but I'm 12 days in and I just feel like I'm constantly repeating similar sentences. My moods cycle each week I'm sure! I'm definitely going to revert back to my colour by numbers style.

There we have it, that's my July monthly set up! I'm not really enjoying this month personally because it doesn't reflect me as a person, probably just to the lack of creativity! My favourite page has to be my social media tracker and brain dump spread as I love the little icons I doodled! 

If you liked this one then feel free to check out my June set up for more inspiration, I also did a video on my April monthly spread which I'll insert below!

Baopals Clothing Haul | CHINA IS SO CHEAP!

July 10, 2018

"I really need some new clothes" - me every single morning.



I literally wake up every day and moan about not having any clothes, so I just brought a crapload more! You guys don't even understand when I tell you china is C-H-E-A-P! So over here there's a website called Baopals and it's basically like the Chinese version of Amazon/eBay combined, you can literally buy anything from this place so I thought I'd test out the clothes section...

The first thing that I came across was this yellow t-shirt and let me tell you, I died inside because this t-shirt is a little bit of me. Yellow is my colour right now so this just screamed my name! I never normally wear colour so those of you who know me will see this post and be proud of all the colour I bought. Now I really love this t-shirt. It was a little bit smaller than I expected it to be as I wanted it to be baggier because I love wearing t-shirts as dresses, but it's no biggie because it still fits.




I then chose to get another item of colour, and this time I actually brought a t-shirt dress rather than just a t-shirt. I brought this in a medium because I was worried it would have been too small if I didn't and I was wrong. This is just a little bit longer than I would've liked it but I still like it and now I could even dress it up with a belt if I wanted too.



I've been needing some new joggers for a million years so I decided to get this pair because I thought they were pretty snazzy. They're black with a mesh insert in the back, on my first impressions I thought I was going to hate these but they're actually growing on me. The ankle cuffs are very tight though so they're a struggle to get on at first!



This next thing is something I've been wanting for a long time now. It's a UNIF style checked skirt, I love checkboard pattern it's probably the only pattern I actually do like. I just think it has that perfect emo kinda vibe which literally screams at my inner emo self. I instantly looked at this and thought it was going to be too small, and I was right! Also, the zip was broke so when I tried to zip it up it reopened and got jammed halfway and I was stuck in it for like 15 minutes! I think I'm going to have to actually splash the cash on a real one at this rate.



I then found this off shoulder cropped black top which I love! I have another one of these in grey but it's super small on me and wearing grey in sweaty 35+ degree heat is pretty huns. The material on this isn't that great and there were threads hanging off of it but I'm genuinely never too fussed about the crappy material so long as it looks good!



This next t-shirt also isn't my usual style, it's got very tomboy-esque vibes to it and I kinda dig it. I didn't know how this would turn out on me but I think it looks pretty good I can't even lie. This was also the most expensive thing that I bought in this haul and the quality of it is so good.



Last but not least, this wasn't mine to start off with Kurt bought this for himself but it's too small for him which makes it perfect for me! I've actually cut it into a crop now because I just think it looks a hell of a lot cuter than it did to start off with and the fact it says 'breakout' on the front just reminds me of Foo Fighters which makes me enjoy it even more. It's also super hot here so baggier crops are needed!


I also bought a denim jacket, a pink striped t-shirt and a pineapple bag but I lost the images of them, so you can see them and my full thoughts and review in my video below!



The grand total of this entire haul was £49.23, which is so cheap considering I liked almost every single thing I bought! My favourite items have to be the denim jacket and the 2 yellow t-shirts, I don't know what it is about yellow at the moment but I tell you it's the new red in my eyes!

Anyway don't forget to check out my video before you leave and I hope you all have a fabulous evening!
