Monthly Theme Ideas for Your Bullet Journal

Hey Everyone!

Happy Thursday! I hope your week has been great so far! I feel like mine has gone by super quick to be honest! It’s already Thursday!? I’ve definitely been busy this week and it doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down in the week to come, so I want to apologize if my social media presence isn’t as prominent as it typically is BUT I’m still here and that’s what matters.

Today I’m writing a bullet journal themed blog post. For any of you who haven’t bullet journaled before, have never heard of it, or don’t really know where to start this will be a great blog post for you to read! BUT you might find it helpful to read my blog post explaining WHAT a blog post is. If you’d like to read that first you can click here. I have other bullet journal related posts as well, and you can read all of those by clicking the “bullet journal” tab on the menu here on my blog.

I personally set up my bullet journal with specific spreads on the first couple pages, and then individually do my months with a different theme! This keeps it fun (for me) and creative as well. But sometimes you can feel like you’re in a creative rut, and aren’t sure what to pick as your monthly theme….so I thought it would be a super fun blog post to share a ton of monthly theme ideas for your bullet journal! In case you ever find yourself in a rut – I know I have found myself in this position, so this blog post might come in handy for myself later on!

Holidays

If you’re in a rut, and can’t think of any specific theme, a super easy idea is to think of a holiday that happens in that particular month and center your theme on that! So for example:

New Years Eve, Valentines Day, St. Patricks Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas. You could also do a “birthday” theme for the month of your birthday including presents, balloons, party hats, confetti!

Nature

There are a lot of themes that I have done, and seen that are nature themed! Again, you can consider this one seasonal, or just something you love to doodle! Lavender, Cactus, Succulents, Roses, Dandelions, Palm Trees, Autumn Leaves, Cherry Blossoms. Animals could also be considered in this category: sea creatures (fun coloured fish, jelly fish, whales, dolphins, shark week), autumnal animals (like foxes, deer, squirrels), summer animals (like caterpillars, butterflies, ladybugs, bumblebees, bugs in grass.), Reindeer around christmas time. I also saw a really fun CORGI themed bullet journal this past month and I thought that was super fun!

Collage Theme

Something that I’ve been having a lot of fun with lately is creating a collage style bullet journal. This is where I print out photographs, or find fun things to glue into my bullet journal. This can be in addition to your current theme, or it can BE the center of your theme. For example, in July my theme was really just the colour blue – and then I glued in pictures that I liked, that really did not have a relation with each other. The only real theme was the same font I used throughout the month and the same colour.

However, this month I’ve done a mixture of the two. This month my theme is COFFEE. I have put in doodles of coffee mugs and coffee beans. But I’ve also glued in cut outs from takeout bags from local coffee shops. If you’re trying to think of things to clue into your bullet journal, think of your own personal pictures (if you have a lot of polaroid pictures), think of coloured contruction paper, think of paint samples from your local Home Hardware. These are all fun things you can glue into your journal that add something to it!

If you have a really fun washi tape that you want to use, you can make that your “central theme” or you can try to find a way to incorporate it into a different theme!

Your Favourite T.v show

A super fun one that I recently did in August is a monthly theme based on one of your favourite T.V shows. I did the show F.R.I.E.N.D.S and it was super fun to include quotes I think are funny from the show, and doodle iconic moments from the show. I think this is a really fun one to do because you’ll constantly be smiling while you’re doing it. You don’t necessarily HAVE to do the show FRIENDS. I feel like some other good ones would be: The Office, That 70’s Show, How I Met Your Mother, Greys Anatomy, Suits, How to Get Away with Murder, and others!

Food

Some of my FAVOURITE themes I’ve done this year have been food related. There are a TON of options if you’re able to take your creativity and run with it. Here are some options: Citrus fruits (lemons, limes, grapefruit, oranges.), Donuts, Cherries, Coffee, Pumpkins, Candy, Pineapple, Watermelon, Kiwi, Avocado, Sushi, Apples, Ice-Cream, Birthday Cake, Pie, PIZZA.

Other

I’m not really sure how I would categorize these next themes, so I figured I would just add some extra ideas that I think are fun here! Hot Air Balloons, Beach Themed (towels, sea shells, umbrellas, popsicles.) Superheros/comic book, Farm Themed (barns, wheat, corn), Winter themed (mittens, hats, scarfs, sweaters, hot chocolate, boots), Movie theme (film, popcorn, action sign, directors chair), DISNEY theme (different disney characters), A sport you like (soccer, football, basketball, tennis), “back to school” (books, pencils, desks, your school colours), polaroid themed (draw polaroid cameras, pictures), City theme (draw buildings, cars, street lights), Music theme (your favourite songs, artists, lyrics, musical notes, record players, headphones, cassette tapes, iPods, walkmans.)

I know there’s a ton of other options for bullet journal monthly themes, but if I were to list all of the options, I think I’d be here for a while, and no one would want to read a novel length blog post LOL. But I’m always looking for new inspiration, so if you think I left something out or forgot a really awesome theme idea leave me a comment below or on any of my social medias!

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen my ” followers pick my Bullet Journal theme” segment. This segment is a series of polls where YOU my followers pick a theme you like the most, in a tournament style, my list of potential options for my next bullet journal theme dwindles down from usually around 10-8 to ONE picked by you guys. If you leave me a comment I’ll make sure that YOUR theme idea is included in my next Bullet Journal poll! WHICH MEANS – I might be doodling one of your suggestions!

Till next time,

Lexi

Interior Design: What is Scandinavian Decor?

Hey Everyone!

I hope you’re all enjoying the gorgeous weather today! It’s a beautiful day to be stuck inside classrooms am I right? LOL That’s right my entire day is consumed with classes, but I’m hoping I can get outside when they’re all done and soak up that last little bit of sun in the early evening.

Today I’m going to be writing an interior design blog post….as you might have guessed from the title of this post. I’m going to be going over the basic elements of “Scandinavian” decor. I’m going to be sharing what comprises Scandinavian decor and how you can achieve it, along with some photographs for inspiration. If you really like the sound of Scandinavian decor and really like the photographs I’ve added into this blog post I would really suggest checking out my Pinterest boards as I’m always sharing pins for inspo. You can find the link to my Pinterest profile at the end of this blog post along with all my other social media links 🙂

I have written two other blog posts sharing the basic elements of Farmhouse decor AND Industrial decor. If you haven’t read those I would definitely suggest giving those a read as you might find some of the elements overlap, because I definitely noticed this.

Scandinavian decor acknowledges 3 things: minimalism, functionality and beauty (of course.) So the main priority of Scandinavian decor is to address that less is more, and that it should serve a purpose other than purely decoration.

Scandinavian inspired rooms are typically seen with white walls, a neutral colour palette (with a pop of colour), a lack of curtains/wall-to-wall carpets/additives as the look is very minimalist, and natural elements such as light coloured wood, stone, and natural greenery/plants. If/when there are decor pieces added to a space, they are typically minimal and have clean lines.

You might find this element of wood and functionality, along with a neutral colour scheme can be very similar to Farmhouse decor. They are slightly different in their aesthetic, but their concepts are very similar! So if this is something you find visually pleasing, I would also recommend checking out Farmhouse decor!

Scandinavian Decor Inspiration

This is a great example to showcase the minimalism and light-airy feel to Scandinavian decor. The white cabinetry here in this photograph really reflect the light, and make the room feel large. Along with the light coloured wood counter tops, it really softens the industrial look kitchens typically get. There’s also minimal treatment to the space,including sleek blinds for the windows. The stools are very functional for the space and there’s no clutter on the counters!

This is a little bit of a different example of Scandinavian decor, as it has a little more design elements in it. But the most important thing to note about this photograph, is that every item in this photograph serves a purpose. A coat hanger, a bench to sit on to put shoes on, a tray to set your keys on. The pieces in the room support the Scandinavian idea of functionality. We can also identify the minimalism of the space of the entry way. There COULD be more in this space, but there isn’t. The neutral colour palette, and the natural wood flooring, along with a pop of green from the plants!

I hope this style has inspired a revamp in your current home decor! I never really thought I liked Scandinavian decor, but after doing some research on it, and looking at photographs I’m really drawn to it! If you want more inspiration, like I’ve mentioned earlier, definitely head over to my Pinterest as I have a board for Interior Design split into sections for different styles, and if you didn’t find inspiration here, I KNOW you’ll find some there!

I wanna know,..what’s your FAVOURITE style of interior design? What would you tell an interior decorator you want done to your space? Leave me a comment below, or on any of my social medias.

Till next time,

Lexi

Scentsy: My Top Picks

Hey Everyone!

I hope your week has treated you well thus far, and IF it hasn’t…the weekend is near! This is the first FULL week of classes, along with work AND my volunteering I’ve been kept super busy and I’m definitely looking forward to the weekend. I know I’ve mentioned it in the past couple blog posts, so if you’re an avid reader of my blog I apologize if I sound like a broken record here, but to reiterate to any new followers or to anyone getting caught up on my posts: I will be uploading NEW blog posts Tuesdays and Thursdays, along with updating older content on SATURDAYS.

This past Saturday I updated my first blog post, and if you haven’t had a chance to check that out yet I’ll link it here. I think updating my older blog posts will give newer followers to my blog a chance to discover posts they might not know exists. As well as update them with any information I think the post is missing, If you’re also a blogger reading my posts, and you DON’T update your old content, what are you waiting for?! I don’t know why it took me this long to do it!

Into today’s blog post, I was inspired to write this post because I’m OBSESSED with candles/having a nice smelling room. As I’ve mentioned in a couple blog posts I really want to share with you guys things that are AFFORDABLE. And the honest truth is that although candles are in fact – awesome. They eventually run out (the wax burns out) and you’re inevitably going to toss the candle out.

When I went to University my mom bought me a wax melter – which has been an absolute game changer for me. This is because 1) you can have it in dorm rooms as there’s no open flame (side note: which also makes it a great option for people who have animals or little kids that could knock over a candle) and 2) because the wax lasts so much longer this way!

I want to disclaim that I dont’ sell Scentsy, this is NOT a paid advertisement at all (although I wish it was LMAO), I just really live by my Scentsy products and want to share affordable ways to keep your house/rooms smelling great.

So of course you’re going to need a wax melter for this which they sell tons of cute looking ones on your site! And then you’ll need the WAX. The wax is great because it comes in a bar of cubes, and one cube can keep my room smelling good for SO long. I have not bought wax because I HAVE to, I buy wax because I like the smell of them (and I have not run out once LOL).

Today’s post is going to be going through their current catalogue and picking out some of the scents that are either my favourites or my top picks to try! If you’re not reading this post after it immediately came out, I would recommend that you quickly scroll up and check the date on my post and check your current date – as Scentsy is constantly putting out new scents and taking off seasonal scents so you *might* find that certain options I have put on this list are not available at the time you’re reading this.

Scents I have Tried

I thought it would make SCENTS (do you guys see what I did there?? LOL) to start off this blog post with the Scentsy Bars I have tried and would repurchase. I have definitely tried (and loved) many more than what’s included on this list, but I of course am only going to talk about the ones that are currently on their website that you guys can go and purchase. Later on in this post I’ll also be sharing some Scentsy Bars that I have NOT tried but think would smell AMAZING.

I would also like to make note, that everyone has their own sense of smell and opinions. Some things that I think smell amazing and beautiful, you might HATE the smell of. So this is a matter of personal preference!

Amazon Rain

Amazon Rain has been a favourite of mine for a while now! They all have descriptions online of their scents, but the easiest way to describe this scent (for me) is that it reminds me of a light perfume. Not an aggressive one that gives you a headache, but just a nice smelling perfume. If you’re interested in checking this bar out you can follow this link:

https://allisonloves.scentsy.ca/shop/p/36238/amazon-rain-scentsy-bar

Mochadoodle

Now THIS scent is AMAZING. I would definitely say it’s a more seasonal/autumn smell. BUT it smells exactly like chocolate and coffee. OMG. I love it so much, it’s not a super powerful smell. It’s also a very neutral smell so it’s kind of great for any room in the house! If you’re interested in checking this bar out you can follow this link:

https://waxwarmer.scentsy.ca/shop/p/sb-mdo/mochadoodle-scentsy-bar

SunKissed Citrus

Sunkissed Citrus is definitely more of a spring/summer scent BUT it’s currently in my stockpile and I’m definitely using it into the winter. It’s a blend of all the citrus scents: lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit. One doesn’t over power the other and it’s a nice, almost “clean” smell. If this sounds like a smell you’d want in your home you can check the wax out here:

https://waxwarmer.scentsy.ca/shop/p/sb-skc/sunkissed-citrus-scentsy-bar

Scents on my Wish List

As I’ve mentioned earlier in this blog post I’m now going to be sharing some of the Scentsy bars that are on my “wish list.” I would say part of the fun of ordering from Scentsy is that you can’t smell the wax before you buy it so it’s kind of a mystery what it will smell like and if you’ll like it until it gets to your door. My recommendation is ordering at least one smell you KNOW you’ll like, maybe this is one your friend has that you’ve smelt before, or one you’ve purchased yourself and loved. Then you know in your haul of wax that AT LEAST one of them is a guaranteed like.

Baked Apple Pie

This is a seasonal scent that just appeals to me so much. Often times IN STORES you see a lot of pumpkin flavoured candles, but I feel like you don’t see too much apple flavoured candles. I am a huge fan of apple cinnamon flavours so I think I would really enjoy this. If this also sounds like a smell you would love you can check it out using this link:

https://waxwarmer.scentsy.ca/shop/p/sb-bap/baked-apple-pie-scentsy-bar

Autumn Sunset

I think it’s always funny when candles are named things like “Autumn Sunset” because lets be real…what the EFF does an Autumn Sunset smell like!? Well apparently, according to Scentsy, an Autumn Sunset smells like apples, pumpkins, and fall spices…AKA….a candle I would be obsessed with. I know it’s another seasonal candle scent….buuuut I’m not mad at it? IF you want ALL THE FALL candles and want to buy this scent you can follow this link:

https://waxwarmer.scentsy.ca/shop/p/sb-aut/autumn-sunset-scentsy-bar

Lavender CottoN

The final bar of wax I’m going to be sharing in this blog post is Lavender Cotton. I currently have a similar wax in my collection, and it’s running low. Unfortunately they don’t have that particular scent on their site right now, and I think this would be a similar smell. It’s honestly just a fresh, clean smell that’s good any time of the year. The lavender is also super relaxing and great for bedrooms to sleep in! Here’s the link for that scent:

https://waxwarmer.scentsy.ca/shop/p/48977/lavender-cotton-scentsy-bar

I hope this inspired you guys to find some affordable candles or wax melters from Scentsy! I know as a student this is a great way to save some money as the wax scent lasts a lot longer, and only needs to be changed when you can no longer smell the wax VS. a candle burning out.

Till next time,

Lexi

What University Taught Me 3.0

Hey Everyone!

I hope you’re all having an awesome day so far 🙂 The weather is actually quite gorgeous where I am today so I really can’t complain. This year I am volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters – which if you didn’t know is a free service for children who want an older mentor. Today is my first meet up with the children I’m going to be working with for the next year! I’m really excited to get to know them, their personalities, and get some experience working with children!

I’m also really excited to write this particular blog post. This will be the third, and potentially final, installment in my now recurring series “What University Taught Me.” In the first year I was blogging, I shared the original post “What University Has Taught Me” post where I shared life lessons I learned, not necessarily in the class room, but during my time away from home and living on my own.

I really loved that post so much because it was so raw, and honest. I loved it so much that when I started my blog back up (after a long hiatus) I decided to write an updated version of that post, which I then titled “What University Has Taught Me 2.0” Again, so raw, and open, and I just really loved these posts so I thought I should probably continue the tradition. To be quite honest, this past year has gone by SO fast because I can vividly remember sitting down to write last years post, and I can hardly believe I’m sitting down to write this years version.

But without rambling on for too much longer I think I’m going to dive in and share some lessons I’ve learned over this past year.

I’ve learned that sometimes, really great things happen when you least expect them to. Sometimes when you’re not searching for something it might just appear right in front of you and it might be so perfect it doesn’t even seem real.

I’ve learned that the 20’s can be a weird time for people – everyone is at a different stage in their life at these ages and it’s okay if you’re not in the same place as someone else. You are not “behind” you are not “off-track” – you’re simply just on a different path. So stop comparing yourself to others.

I’ve learned to value the relationships and friendships I have in the moment, and to acknowledge that as we as individuals get older and our lives get more complex – it might be more difficult to see friends. But those people who are TRULY your people, won’t hold that against you and will remain your friend no matter what.

And finally, I’ve learned that everything does not need to be planned out. Sometimes life is better experienced IN THE MOMENT. So take time, relax, and (sometimes) let what ever is meant to happen, happen.

I hope you all enjoyed reading about the life lessons I’ve learned over this past year. What has this past year taught you? Leave me a comment below, or on any of my social medias I would love to hear from you!

Till next time,

Lexi

Lexi’s Broke Bitch PB Cookies

Hey Everyone!

I hope you’re all having a fantastic day! Today was my first day of school for my last year of University and it’s been such a great day so far. The weather was gorgeous outside so I decided to walk to school. I definitely checked some items off my to-do list and now I’m doing some house keeping stuff at home, getting set up for the new semester!

I just wanted to remind my followers who may have not read yesterday’s post that on Saturdays I will be updating/editing old posts on Saturdays. So my new schedule for uploading content will be: Tuesdays and Thursdays for NEW blog posts, and then on SATURDAY’s I will be editing and updating old blog posts. This could be fixing links that don’t work anymore, adding photos, adding suggestions to recipes! I think this is also a great way to showcase some blog posts that some of my current potential followers haven’t yet read!

In my Summer Affordable Clothing Haul post, I talked about sharing more affordable clothing. For today’s post, I would consider this an affordable recipe?? If that’s a thing? As a student, I try to limit the amount of money I spend on things, including groceries! I try not to eat out too much, and I try to limit expensive grocery items. This typically means that I don’t bake too much, just because it requires me to buy ingredients I wouldn’t use all the time.

This Peanut Butter Cookie recipe only requires THREE ingredients! Which makes it an awesome recipe for all you broke bitches like me LOL. They are super tasty, and easy to make which is also great for students. But instead of rambling on and on about the cookies, I’m just gonna get right to it and share with you all the steps you need to make these bad boys!

You’ll Need

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (packed) brown sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl
  • Form small balls of the goopy dough with your hands and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet
  • Take a fork and press down on the blobs to make those signature peanut butter cookie marks
  • The final step is to pop those suckers in the oven for about 8 minutes! You’re also gonna want to let them cool for about 5 minutes, and then you’re all set to enjoy.

No word of a lie, I think this is probably the easiest recipe I’ve ever uploaded to my blog and it’s a great after school snack (trust me y’all.) If you try this recipe take a picture and tag me in it on my social medias! I’d love to see your recreations! All of my links are at the end of this blog post, including my Pinterest where you can easily save this recipe for later!

Till next time,

Lexi

August Reflection

Hey Everyone!

I hope you’re all having a great week so far! It’s just me, casually being behind on my blog posts again LOL. I’m actually getting ready for my first day of school tomorrow! YES it’s that time of the year already. I’m not sure how another year has come and gone so quick, yet here we are. As per usual, this is the first blog post of a new month, so I’m just going to be sharing a little bit about my life and what’s happened in the past month!

Before I get too in depth in this blog post, I also wanted to mention to my followers that I will be updating old blog posts on Saturdays! These blog posts might include recipes that I think are great for the time of year, helpful blog posts, or just fun ones! So to remind my current followers and to inform any new followers, I try to upload NEW blog posts every Tuesday and Thursday. AND THEN – additional and updated content will be on Saturdays. If you don’t want to miss any content from me, you can follow me on all my social medias – which are always linked down at the bottom of my blog posts 🙂

To start this month off, I celebrated my 23rd birthday! Some days I’m still in shock that I’m in my twenties. I sometimes feel like a kid to be honest. But I took 5 days off work, and spent them with family and friends to help celebrate! I want to thank anyone who wished me a happy birthday, came to see me, and those who got me gifts – because you really didn’t have to!! I love you all 🙂

This month my boyfriend Caleb and I got up to some really fun adventures! We went to visit “Terre Bleu” Lavender Farm in Milton, Ontario! Which is one of the largest Lavender farms in Ontario! It was super relaxing, and beautiful. The weather was awesome, and we took some great photographs. If you want to check out their website to learn more about it you can do so here: https://www.terrebleu.ca/

For my birthday, Caleb bought us tickets to see The Jonas Brothers!! So at the end of the month we went to Toronto for the weekend. It was so much fun! They were awesome to watch in concert, and it was also hilarious to see the 20-something-year old fan girls LOL. The next day we went to the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, and we went to the Canadian National Exhibition – which was actually my first time ever going! It was SO busy, busier than anything I think I’ve ever experienced before to be honest. But I had such a good time exploring the city with Caleb!

The last event that I want to talk about that happened in August was that I moved back up to my rental house for school! It’s so crazy to think this will be my last year in this town so this move was one to remember!

For my blog I’ve seen some awesome growth and I’m super excited about it! August was a busy month for me personally with work and birthdays and events, so I didn’t put a whole lot of work in networking for my blog but I was still happy with the amount of views on my blog for the month!

Like I mentioned earlier, I have planned to update old blog posts every Saturday so that’s really exciting that I get to put out more content for you guys! Especially those who maybe weren’t following me when that blog post originally came out.

I’ve been working on uploading more original photography, and with that I’ve been trying to learn more editing. It takes time, but ultimately I think uploading my own photographs with my own presets and edits will bring more organic traffic to my blog!

As for milestones, I officially hit 600 followers on Instagram and I’m super excited about that!! I had felt like I had been stuck at the 500 mark for so long, and I truly didn’t feel like I was growing on Instagram, which is where I spend a lot of my efforts when it comes to social medias – to be honest!

I have a lot of fun and exciting content planned and goals set for September, so I can’t wait to see where those take me! What are your goals for the month of September?? Leave me a comment below, or on any of my social medias.

Till next time,

Lexi

Transitioning Summer Clothing into Fall

Hey Everyone!

Sorry for my delayed blog post. I really take pride in sticking to a schedule when it comes to posting my blog posts, I like that my followers know when to expect new posts! So I realize it’s not my usual Thursday blog post, but late is better than never right!?

I’m kind of surprised at how fast August flew by, this Sunday it’s officially SEPTEMBER. I thought it would be really great to share some ways to transition your summer clothing into fall, to get the most out of the clothes in your closet! Some of these options are especially great for that weather where it’s FREEZING in the morning and then boiling in the afternoon.

Cute Cardigans

If you read my 2019 Summer Fashion Trends blog post, you might have seen that silk camisoles are super popular right now! One great way to transition these shirts, and other tank tops you might have is to layer them with a cardigan! Here are some pictures for style inspo:

Like I mentioned earlier, this option is great for when it’s FREEZING in the mornings, and then boiling in the afternoon, because you can literally just take off the cardigan!

Shirts Under Dresses

Another great way to transition some of your summer pieces into the fall weather is to wear shirts under your dresses. This sounds weird to explain so I’ll of course add some photographs to explain, but I actually think this is a super cute outfit idea! I’ve been wearing my dresses like this in the summer time because I just love the look of it.

This is great for us Canadians because we really only have a small window of time where we can wear dresses and skirts before it’s too cold. I love this idea too of being able to customize the look, because the shirt and dress aren’t attached you can switch it up!

Tights/Nylons Under skirts/dresses

This is another great way to extend the life of your summer clothing! It’s also super simple. You probably already have a couple pairs of tights at home. If you’re looking to spice it up, there are some awesome patterned tights, and different coloured tights you can purchase! Here are some pictures:

Cute Jackets

Consider just popping on a cute fall jacket onto your summer look! Some noteable fall jackets are: jean jackets, bombers, and something you might not have thought of before…corduroy! This one is similar to the cardigan idea, where you can put it on during the cold mornings and take it off in the afternoon when it starts to heat up!

I hope this gave you all some style inspiration to help get the most out of your summer wardrobe! I for one am definitely going to be purchasing a super cute corduroy jacket after perusing through Pinterest -LET ME TELL YOU.

But I want to hear from you guys!! How do you extend the life of your summer clothes? Leave me a comment below, or on any of my social medias!

Till next time,
