PLAN WITH ME: September Bujo Set-up // starting over again + wandering amongst wildflowers

Hello beautiful people 🙂

School has started, and alas, it cues more complicated schedules, busier weeks, and overwhelming days. During the summer, I decided to take a break on my bullet journal, because I didn’t really need to use it. Though, when we say hello to September, it will also mean hello to my bujo and planning once again 😂

Today, I’ll be sharing my September bullet journal set-up, and the new spreads I decided to do for the rest of this year. I’m pretty satisfied with the overall result – and I hope that you will love them as much as I do ❤

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

For the month of September, I decided to do a theme based around wildflowers. I don’t know why, but I love that imperfect, messy, yet free look of them, and I was really excited to try and doodle them out. This theme was inspired by the amazing Jordan Clark – she’s one of my favourite YouTubers, and her videos are always so relaxing to watch and aesthetically pleasing!!

I wanted to approach a more minimalistic title page this time, instead of my usual “Hello (insert month)” style. When I first started sketching out my (checks Youtube) Ranunculus Acraeus Alpine Buttercup, I was quite unhappy with it, and I actually restarted it a few times. I’m okay with how it turned out – thanks to Jordan Clark 🙂 Anyways, I decided to shade a little bit; I didn’t want the colours to be the dominant part of my title page. So!! My Alpine Buttercup, thus finished.

The calendar was my least favourite part of this month’s spreads – even though it was a simple ol’ format, somehow I felt like it didn’t really seem to have that same “wildflower-pastel” aesthetic I was going for. Well, anyways, I drew a quick lavender (I think) on the side, which was pretty cute I’d say!

smol note: boxes were 6 x 6

Yup, I am tracking a lot of things this month 😂 I drew an unnamed flower on the bottom right corner – it wasn’t my best, but I’ll accept it. I really liked the clean, minimalistic look on this one, and how I’m using “dots” to fill in my tracker. Sometimes I think I love charts, graphs, and lists a tad too much, so sue me 😂

Ahhh I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS!! So so happy with how this turned out – it has to be my favourite one for this month. I got my inspiration from Pinterest, and a mood tracker is such a great idea – shoutout to the people who first started this. If this works out, I’ll definitely do this again next month!

Ugh, school… I need lots of space to write down my homework *sigh*, quizzes *grumbles*, and tests *outright screams*. I left a ton of empty space for that, so I’d never have to squish it in – I hate doing that so much 😂 I drew a mini calendar and highlighted that week on it, and on the top, I drew a lavender inspired by the ever talented Amanda Rach Lee. Overall, a really quick yet aesthetic spread to do – most likely I’ll keep the same format for next month.

Like I mentioned in my blog title – yes indeed, I have re-started my bullet journal! What I did was that using washi tape, I taped the front part all together. I really wanted a fresh start for the new school year, and it gave me this “refreshed” feeling like I am walking on a new path. I’m almost done the front collection pages and all, but I’m not sure if you guys want to see that or not. Tell me down below, and if you guys are interested, I’ll do it on my next Plan With Me post!


let's take flight, shall we

how is school going for you? do you have a bullet journal? what theme are you doing for this month? what was your favourite spread from above? do you want to see my front collection pages? any suggestions for next month’s theme?

forever yours, kimberly

  3. Your bullet is absolutely beautiful, omg! It’s so gorgeous! And your doodles are actually works of art. I stopped bullet journaling a few years ago because I’m not that artistic and I like the structure of the Happy Planner, but you’re making me miss bullet journaling so much! Although a lot of aspects do carry over to my planner (like monthly goals and habit trackers) and I think the flexibility of bullet journaling is the coolest part. Good luck with this month!! 🙂

    • thank you so much Madeline!! your comments always mean so much to me 🙂 To be honest, I don’t like drawing that much! I find random doodling helps me relax, so I guess the bujo system works okay for me. That’s totally relatable though! Sometimes I feel like there’s stress of setting up a new monthly spread because I’m always doing it on the last few days of that month oops 😂 I agree with you – flexibility of bujo is amazing – you can create just the right format for yourself. Hope you’re having a great September so far!! xx
