November Bullet Journal Set Up

I am back with another bullet journal set up blog post, for all you planner and stationery babes! I have to keep reminding myself that it is going to be November, its nearly the end of 2019 and Christmas, which I am super excited for! Where has 2019 gone? This year definitely feels one of the quickest years of my life!

For my November spread I wanted to continue the autumnal colours and use leaf doodles as decoration and colour for each page. I chose to have my front cover with lots of leaves as I could use different autumnal colours to reflect the leaves on the ground. I experimented with lettering, adding a yellow drop shadow to add depth to the lettering.




The habit tracker layout I have used is the same as previous months. I find this layout the easiest to work with. This month I have included social media into the tracker, this is to remind me to post consistently on all platforms. This is also going to be so helpful as I need to work balancing all of them. I continued to experiment with brush lettering and leaf doodles.



I like to use my bullet journal to record my blog statistics. I like to keep a record and see my progress. It is of course not all about numbers, but I like to see whether my audience is growing. I use a simple design to record these statistics.



Last month I introduced a mood tracker and I found it useful. It helps me track any consistent feelings of anxiety. I decided to doodle different size and shaped leaves, I will colour them in relating to my feelings.




I decided to design my weekly spread a bit differently this month, I designed a smaller layout all on one page. I liked the idea of separate boxes for the weekdays and a joint box for the weekend. I added a drop shadow to each box, it adds depth and colour to the weekly spread. I decided to add a simple autumnal tree and leaves incorporating the range of colours I have used throughout this months set up.



I enjoyed setting up this November bullet journal spread, I used a range of colours and incorporated more doodles and experimented more with lettering.

What is your November bullet journal theme? What are you looking forward to this November? I’d love to hear in the comments.

  1. This is such a cute planner Lauren. Especially the mood tracker by coloring leaves is such a brilliant idea. I love your habit tracker goals as well. Even I try to hit 10000 steps daily even when I am at home. But for the past 3-4 days I have not been that well and my step count has gone down to half. It is always great to keep a track of everything in written it helps immensely. 🙂 Love the way your have planned and colored.

  2. Oh, this is so lovely, Lauren, you are so artistic and creative, my BuJo is very plain and boring by comparison! I love the Autumn leaves mood tracker, that is SUCH a good idea, as well as being a colourful addition to your journal. One thing I noticed is that your BuJo has dotted paper – so does mine, it makes things so much easier, doesn’t it? Lovely post, very inspirational, can’t wait to see your December one in due course!
