September & October Favorites

Hey guys, I m back with my monthly favorites post and this time I will be sharing my September and October favorites together. Yeah, two months favorites all bunched up in one!! I missed out on both the months I know my fault I m sorry its just work getting in my way I m living a hectic life for a while now it’s not that I hate getting busy but it was an overwhelming experience this time. While I was working on my fall favorites I decided to write a quick post that includes all the stuff that I loved during September & October. So yeah sit back grab a cup of coffee or any beverage of your choice and enjoy this post. I promise I won’t take long, will mention all the stuff and why I loved them that’s it. So let’s just dive right into the post.

It was the rainy season when I picked out these three beauty products and they are working so well in fall too. I have become a bit concerned about getting my hands on new beauty products compared to last year. Also, I m trying hard to keep my skin healthy and nourished no matter what time of the year it is. Its been a while now since I m using these products and I m totally in love with them. They are working perfectly on my skin. Its time now I introduce them. The first product is the Dove Intensive Cream for the body. It’s thick but not oily and good for all skin type, especially for colder times. I like to use it right after I shower so that it can penetrate deep into my skin and keep it moisturized all day long.

Next product is this Garnier B.B Cream I have a little confession to make. I usually do not wear foundation for my daily makeup routine I mostly use BB cream and it’s been like almost 2 years since I m using this one. I was running out of it so picked a new one. Perfect for girls with wheatish complexion because for me finding a good shade is a real struggle. It gets really hard to find products such as foundation, face powder and BB Cream that matches my skin tone. But this I guess was made for me. If makeup could be your soul mate this would be mine definitely. I have tried Ponds and Lakmé BB cream as well but they get a little oily and also a bit darker for my skin tone so totally no from my side.

Next beauty product is this lip cream aka lip balm from Nivea. I personally love Nivea products I can be their brand ambassador if they want me to( Just Kidding!!) All the beauty products I use they are mostly from Nivea it’s such a good brand cheap but good quality. I can trust all of their products eyes closed. They are soo good for all skin types. I feel I got a little carried away sorry let’s get back on track. I was talking about this lip care by Nivea which I picked recently when I was shopping with mum. I forgot to carry mine so had to get a new one from the store. Frankly, when I used it for the first time my lips felt soo good. This one is little different from the ones I have used earlier. It’s got that minty vibe to it. When you apply it stays for a long time plus your lips feel fresh, cool and minty. My fav so far, such a good product to carry when you are on a go. I carry it all time with me in my bag, my jeans anywhere anytime I want. It’s so small in size to fit perfectly anywhere.

So glad that we finally have KAVENTERS in Udaipur. A very well known beverage brand selling out the best milkshakes in INDIA. I was checking out my friend’s profile when I came to know that kaventers is finally here. Was really excited to try it out. Me and mum went to the mall for movie one day we were just chilling and decided to eat something I picked a coffee from Kaventers because I m not a milkshake person at all (to be frank) I decided to go for coffee that day. Was not in a mood of experimenting at all I was so tired after the movie and shopping. The cold coffee was quite cheap plus it tasted amazing which is another bonus for the price you are paying and one more thing it’s actually served in a cool carry jar. So you can carry your milkshakes or coffee with you if you’re on a go. I mean how amazing is that I just love Kaventers for this new thing. Cheap but tasty I mean it had to be amazing because I picked coffee.

I m a sucker for all cute things whether it be a mug, jar or a bottle. If you want to see my collection be sure to comment down below will love to share them with you. So yeah I was on a hunt for a new bottle which I can carry 24/7 with me also when I m out for running errands. I wish to have a bottle which I can carry easily in my bags and it’s really a struggle to find that perfect size. Either they are too small for the water quantity I m willing to carry or they are too big for my bag size. The bottle I m currently using is from CCD I got it when I was out chilling with my friend it’s no shame to carry such bottles you save a lot of your money because these are very cheap and usable. Don’t throw them away you can use these plastic bottles multiple times, just refill them and they are good as new you will definitely save a lot of your money. Do things that can help you save the environment. We are encouraging pollutions by throwing plastic bottles every day. These kind of water bottles are available everywhere in store, airports, railway station, grocery store everywhere just find that one perfect size for you. I have been carrying this for a long time now and trust me it’s still in an amazing condition. So go for such plastic bottles instead by buying expensive ones.

Whenever I get time from work I binge over YouTube, listen to podcasts, watch tv and do some random stuff. I believe in utilizing that free time too. But recently I was looking for something I can chill on totally not thinking about anything work but just having fun. I was going to play store for some game options where I saw this game named Ludo people are going crazy over it. I have seen so many people playing and enjoying it. The rating was high plus everyone is talking about how addicting and cool is this game. I too wanted to give it a try so I downloaded it. Trust me guys it’s really addicting but not in a bad way. Whenever I wanna chill after my working hour I will just play one game online and that’s it. It really helps you get rid of those weird work thoughts and pressure you are getting all day and have fun as a little kid. So do check it out.

Next fav is this black sling aka envelop bag that I got from a local store. It was a random store on street and I was picking some jewelry pieces when I decided to buy this because when I saw it I wanted it badly that’s it. Its an amazing must have, a basic black bag that perfectly goes with every outfit. It’s one of my go-to bag of all time. It was very cheap plus the quality was too good to buy. I was ok to pay the price for such piece. Buying a black sling bag was on my list from so long, I think they look cool when you’re off for running errands too and it has been best so far. That metal thing at the front side gives it more of that edgy and high-end look which I soo soo Love. The size is perfect also it has enough space to carry all my essentials.

I love horror and thriller movies it’s my fav genre of all. I have seen all parts of conjuring and Annabelle so I was really excited for the Annabelle Creation which was out in 2017 I badly wanted to go and watch it in theatre everybody knows how cool it is to watch a horror movie on a big screen. I wanted to have that thrilling feeling and goosebumps all over my body but none of my family members or friends were coming over to watch with me and I couldn’t go alone so I dropped it and later I watched it online. Amazing movie and the amazing concept it is perfectly connected with the first part, if you want to add it to your fall movie list you definitely should. I bet you’ll enjoy it.

Everyone knows how much I love writing and journaling and my love for planners and journals will be forever. I was running out of pages in my notebooks so I picked 2 new notebooks from Archies store. They were affordable plus I loved the cover pages of both. I was very confused between the two so I picked both of them. They are very cute, the pages are good in quality too you cannot ask for more really. The smaller is for journalling and the bigger one is my bullet journal I started bullet journalling recently and thought this would be the perfect size for starting as a beginner. So yeah I love to collect notebooks and these two are my favorites so far. It sleek, its stylish and I love the fact that it has a quote on it which motivates me daily as soon as I pick it for work.

Winter in India calls for a lot of weddings. There were so many for me to attend this season first I went out of town for my best friends wedding and then came back for my cousin’s wedding. It has been such a hectic but an amazing month so far. Marriages really bring out the joy and happiness in families. I met so many people throughout this month did so many amazing things that I will remember forever. Now talking about the outfits I wore for the wedding. Firstly I styled this long dress which I got for my sister’s wedding and it’s one of my all-time favorite dress and perfect for the wedding season. Got it from a local boutique in Ajmer street. I always get lots and lots of compliments on this dress. The length, the embroidery, the colors everything shouts festive vibes. I was also thinking of doing a wedding outfits post. If I get time I will surely post all the dresses I wore this wedding season but yeah this one will always be my fav.

2017 for me has been all about being healthy, eating healthy and doing more and more workouts. I have tried to be consistent throughout my journey and stay fit. For days when I m running out of my breakfast supplies, I picked Quaker Oats as a perfect substitute for a smoothie. I love having smoothies for my breakfast every day but recently I have started eating oats and they taste so good and are healthy equally. With tasting good they keep me full until afternoon, my lunch hours. They are super easy to make and taste delicious every time I make them. All you need is water or milk, put oast in a bowl, add milk to it, heat and add seeds, fruits, nuts all that stuff of your choice. Well, I like to get creative with my toppings every day so I put different things according to my mood. Having oats for my breakfasts is also one of my October favorites as I m trying to add more and more healthy things to my lifestyle and oats have been such a good food option for me.

I m not a heels person at all, I cannot even walk straight if you will ask me too. I own 2-3 pair of heels hardly. It doesn’t mean that I cannot walk in heels I do wear them but occasionally or when days I want to add some heights to my outfit. I have been looking for some good wedges and heels everywhere online and offline. So many girls all over Instagram own this gorgeous pair of heels which I wanted so badly. I have been seen girls killing it, styling it in the most stylish way possible also I have seen so many colors and materials available for the same. I was ordering one online from forever21 but then I saw the same in PaylessSourse India. It was made of the exact color and material I wanted so without thinking twice I picked it. It’s gorgeous nude suede heels which I love soo soo much. I wore it for like straight 5-6 hours and trust me it’s comfortable like hell. If needed you can even run in it which is a plus point for me. I m still drooling over this pair its such a beauty. It looks super cute with boyfriend and skinny jeans you can totally dress them up or dress them down. I m sure you guys can pop at Payless any day and find the exact same pair. Also there were many other colors available too. If you are curious mine is in size 5. They are suede, they are nude they are sandals PERFECT. That thick heel is everything I was looking for in a shoe. I love thick heels so couldn’t say no when I first saw it. My wardrobe doesn’t have anything like this so yeah I m happy to add this masterpiece.

I love plain and oversized tees, colors like black, white, grey and navy blue plus all dark colors look so good during fall as well as in summer season. I picked these two from Big Bazaar men section they are in size small if you are wondering. I love the material it’s so comfortable and good in quality. Plain tees are my jam I have all basic colors like black, white, grey, navy blue so this time I wanted to experiment a little with colors and that is why I picked this dark brown tone color and navy blue. I believe brown looks super cute with black jeans. I m looking forward to layering it with some winter essentials. I know I would rock it basic girls life. Basic tees like these are staples for every girl’s wardrobe. I dig on such tees wherever I see them. They are not super long in length and goes perfectly with my height. I tuck it in whenever I wear them. Tucking in is a great option when you have that extra fabric hanging down there.

My last monthly favorites are these jewelry pieces I picked up recently from a local store. Dainty and stylish jewelry pieces are my jam. You show me I will buy it coz I crave for such pieces. Lately, I have been in love with silver jewelry don’t know why I believe I have seen so many people wearing it that now I too want it. But its good thing that I m buying more and more silver pieces because they go so well with my Guess Couture watch. I really don’t own much silver jewelry so I had to get it when I saw them. First I have these two beautiful rings one is in silver with bow shape diamond which is a totally cute thing and the other is golden with a blue stone in the centre which looks adorable and is in fashion now. Both are in size 16. I love them they look soo good, high end and fashionable. Next I have a silver bracelet and a silver necklace. Both are thin and delicate and I personally adore such dainty items. Again I didn’t have any silver necklace or bracelets before these. My first time with silver jewelry and I believe they look so well with my skin tone. So that’s all for my monthly favorite post I hope you guys like it also comment down your favorite monthly favorite. I would love to know and I will be back with an amazing post XOXO

Plan With Me: December(Minimalist and Christmas theme)

Hello people, I m back with the last plan with me of the year. Super super excited for this one. This “Plan with Me” journey has been so amazing so far. The November set up was good so far I especially loved the spread, overall I had plenty of space for everything also I used the setup so well. As the spread was pretty simple and usable I decided to stick with the same layout and stuff only I added few new things like new habits to my habit tracker and changed the existing weekly log that’s it. I was not planning on doing much for December but going minimalist and Christmasy was my theme. I saw a minimalist Christmas-Wreath kind of thing on youtube which inspired me so so much that I had to try it out plus it was super simple for a beginner like me. I believe the spread should be designed in a such a way that one can stick to it. Trust me I didn’t had any inspiration when I was about to work on my December bullet journal but youtube has such inspirational people you can look forward too. After watching few videos I knew what I wanted and how my December spread would look at the end. I m still working on my calligraphy and lettering skills there is a lot of room for improvement so please don’t judge me, guys. I started bullet journaling in September it’s only been few months and I can already see the progress in my work. As I have told you the theme was quite simple so I started off with the pen directly. So I hope you guys find this month’s bullet journal spread useful as I have kept it pretty basic. I still can’t believe that it looks so good also a I would like to admit that December spread is my favorite so far. OMG, December ended so well in a way for me guys. Once you will see what I have done in the picture down below everything will be self-explanatory. So yeah let’s get straight to the setup.

Ok, guys, we are finally done with setting up for December I know its been quite an extensive setup but I m really excited to use it. I hope you guys liked this post and if you did don’t forget to follow me. Will be back with an amazing post XOXO

How To Get Your Life Together!!

Hello people how are you all doing? For today’s post I decided to help you all get your life together and why am I posting about it is because I obviously have mine so put together and fine. Well, I m not that perfect but yeah I keep bettering myself every day. Take my advice if you’re truly in need of it. I cannot do well if I don’t really know how things are gonna go for me throughout the day. I just need to have a little bit of organization in my life in order to feel calm and put together. Basically, I love to have things under control. If you’re someone like me who loves an organized life or someone who needs a little organization in their life then keep reading. Now that I have explained enough for the intro let’s get right to the tips. I m not gonna lie but I m at a pretty good spot in my life right now and I feel very on top of this organization game and that is why I m here to share 10 tips that will hopefully help you all get your life together.

Be Honest

Let’s start with tip number one and that is to be completely honest with yourself because if you will not be honest with your life you are not doing any good. It’s really important to find where your problems are. As a human we tend to go through a lot of problems in life which includes feeling uninspired, being unhappy, feeling unmotivated and low. Whatever it is it’s important for you to figure it out. What is the issue? Why are you feeling that way? What is the reason behind you feeling unmotivated? Clear your mind about all bad habits and things like procrastinating, sleeping through your alarms, extending things to the very last day, not working out, not eating healthy etc etc. Best way to make yourself aware of all your bad habit is to just sit down and write about everything (little or big) that distracts you from achieving your goals. If you’re not good in terms of socializing count it in too. If you’re working on improving your relationships with people around you add that too whether it be growing amount of good people in your life or getting rid of the bad ones write everything down. Clarify everything in your mind that way you will understand where are you going wrong, what is lacking in your life and where you need to put more efforts. So sit down close your eyes, take a deep breath and think about what is that you’re working towards in your life and what is actually you need to be doing right now. You will never be able to fix your problems if you don’t define them in your mind.

Get Inspired

After being honest with yourself the second tip that you need to focus on is How to get Inspired? now, this is the most amazing but funniest step to get your life together. If you have no idea where is your life going? what are you doing? why your goals seems to be fading? why everything is falling apart or you are wasting a lot of your time doing nothing its time to get some true inspiration. When you have no idea what kind of life you are planning to live ahead, take a step back and look around you, find people that motivate you. Find that somebody that is living a life you have always dreamt of. Now don’t bring up jealousy into this, there is a huge difference between getting inspired and being jealous of someone. Don’t get envious to live a cool life in a bad way. All I mean is find out who is killing at living an amazing life around you or who do you look at and feel God Damn I wish I had that lifestyle, I wish I was that person doing those things. It could be anyone doing anything, you can also look into social media for some inspiration. There are so many amazing people living happy and content life in this world that you can get inspired by. Just gain some inspiration guys gain it from a person living your next door or from an amazing celebrity over the internet. Find that somebody and get inspired by his or her lifestyle. Set some goals and morals looking at that person. But first, figure out what kind of life you plan and wish to have. The best way to change your life is to write down all the things that you want to acquire in your life. There are two types of people in the world The Proactive and the Reactive ones. Don’t just sit back and watch your life flash before your eyes. Be proactive, go after your life and chase your dreams. Don’t pretend as you have no control over it, react to everything that is happening. Stop making excuses as you can find inspiration in life anytime you want it’s never too late.

Cultivate a Morning & Night Routine

The third tip would be to create and follow routines. I m a routine junkie I love them I love a good morning routine as well as a good night routine. I just love good and productive routines. We as people are creatures of habits so routine is a really good thing to cultivate. I have a very basic morning, evening and night routine that I can stick to regardless of what kind of day I would have ahead of me. My favorite routine though is weekend routine. I have picked two days Sat-Sunday out of the entire week to get all of my shit together and start fresh for the new week. Sunday routines for me are all about rejuvenating and restoring for the upcoming week. I will do laundry, clean my room, plan my meals, do market work, chill out with family, take a hot bath, do a face mask, read a book, watch a movie, plan out the entire week in advance and do everything that can help me get my life together and make a fresh start. Basically, I will do everything that gives my soul joy and makes my day happy. Weekend routine aka GYST day is my favorite of all.

Next thing to focus on cultivating and following routines is to sleep and wake up early. I never forget to include this point in such posts because it’s important anyway. I have noticed that whenever I follow my routine like sleeping and waking up on time I get more stuff done that day. It feels so amazing when you make most out of your time. I hate waking up early the reason being my bed loves me but I still try my best to wake up as early as possible. I feel more productive, more organized, more motivated and more energized when I wake up early. I do all important things plus the ones my heart desire. Getting up early versus late just sets tone for the day. When I wake up early I feel beautiful, the sun looks shiny, everything’s around me looks perfect, I feel like a perfect person and also I get to indulge in one of my most favorite breakfast bowls. It’s obvious for most of us that when we wake up late like around 9 or 10 we start hating everything around us aka we get into this BAD MOOD shit. Most of us feel what’s the point of doing the work we were doing when we have missed that important time slot. I mean half of the morning is gone now what am I left with. I will not do things that I was planning you do, most likely I would start procrastinating and that’s even worse. In order to wake up early, I would set 2 alarms for the morning. One alarm set 15 minutes before I actually need to get up just in case to warm up myself for the beautiful morning routine I have promised myself to follow. And then I will have my actual alarm set at a time I would finally wake up. It’s just a little tip that I use to get myself out of my bed because I sleep through my alarms like anything and most of the time it gets really really irritating. Not a pretty picture right but I m not a perfect person I believe in progress, not perfection. So yeah make two alarms if you need a little bit of help to get up early next morning.

Now that you have cultivated a good morning and night routine its time to cultivate small morning and night bedtime habits it will help you stay more organized as soon as you start your day and when you end it. You can add healthy habits to your morning or night routine whatever suits your soul. Do things like 10 min cleaning before bed, making the bed as soon as you wake up, reading a book before sleeping, having green tea, checking your planner for the next day, maintaining a gratitude journal, moving or rearranging things in your room, setting out your workout clothes for next day etc etc. Little healthy habits like these make your morning and night routine a bit easier and more organised.

Planning

Next tip that I would highly recommend you all to start from today and that is Planning. I love planning process it’s basically my favorite part of the day. I can plan the entire year in advance if I wish to but when it comes to doing it there is actually where my troubles come to life. But I have to keep myself motivated by saying “Stop thinking about it, Stop talking about it JUST DO IT”. We all fail at some point in life and get demotivated, the thing we are doing all wrong is thinking and thinking about crazy stuff. Don’t spend too much time thinking try and get more things done.Now I have divided planning into different categories. Obv planning is done for an enormous number of tasks. You plan your day, plan your routine, plan your meals, plan your studies etc etc. To make it short and understandable I have divided planning into 2:

Plan your meals
I live with my family and my mum cooks the lunch and dinner for us all so there is no point of planning out my meals. But I do plan my breakfast because it totally depends on me what I m craving for that day or I would say I want to give my day a healthy start. I plan my breakfast an evening before so that I can also go out for grocery shopping. So yeah I would recommend you all plan your meals in advance. Most people today do meal prep for an entire week and that is also a good thing because you can save a lot of your time to suit yourself.

Plan Your Day and Prioritize Your Tasks
Planning starts with a planner if you don’t own one buy a good one now or you can go for any type of organizational system you like. Planning your day is a key step towards having an organized life. You can use a physical planner or an online one anything your heart desire. Go for something that works best for you. I have dabbled in both for a little bit but I found that the physical planner works best for me. I can note down all the real stuff that is going on in my life on a piece of paper also I can block out time in my bullet journal for it to complete. I love making to-do lists for things that cant really be held accountable for a certain time. If your someone who is comfortable with online calendar google calendar will work best for you. Google calendar syncs with all your devices so you can manage your calendar on any device. If you don’t want to complicate things just maintain a normal calendar (physical or digital). It’s really easy to work on a calendar you are provided with enough space to write your tasks for the day. Start planning mark out important days, write important tasks that you want to complete, write goals you want to accomplish, birthdays to remember. Write anything and everything you want on a physical or online calendar. And that way everything will be right in front of you and under your control. Now all you need to do is focus and get those tasks completed. Making list and prioritizing tasks is the one best way to get most done throughout the day. Everything that is jumbled up in your brain gets it all out on a piece of paper and then figure out what to do with it. Sort it out, prioritize and get them completed. I like maintaining a daily to-do list as I have hell lot of stuff to get done throughout the day. They don’t need any fixed amount of time I can do all of them anytime I like. Its all about basics GIRL!!

Declutter, Declutter, and Declutter.

The most popular tip where most of us drop off is decluttering. If you are someone new at this and want to make a difference in your life start with Decluttering. Declutter your life, your room, your wardrobe, your digital devices everything. Declutter all the stuff that is not bringing joy and happiness to your life. Get rid of things that get you occupied and waste your time. There is nothing worse than having a ton of objects around you that you really don’t care for and that just brings your soul down. Chaotic life is a total mess trust me. There may be tonnes of things in your life to declutter. Sit down and make a list of all such things, this will help you get rid of them faster. Just ask a simple question to yourself before getting rid of something. Does it bring joy to your life? Do you use it daily? Is it really a necessity in your life? all those basic questions. If your answer is no for anything just toss it out I guarantee you won’t miss it ever.

Next, clean your workspace. Now your workspace can be anything from your entire room to just even a desk. Whatever you’re working with or working on making sure it’s organized because when you try and do things in an unorganized space and aura you’re gonna get unorganized thoughts. For me when my room is not tidy I cannot things straight so I like to clean my entire room often in order to keep my life together. For me when everything is all over the place I feel physically overwhelmed. I feel as if all this mess is burdening on me. Things like making your bed in the morning are such simple tasks it makes your room look so much nicer and organized. You feel productive a)you woke up early b) you made your bed at least you accomplished something as soon as the day started. That means you are off to a good start.

Self Care Routine

My next tip would be a general life tip and that is to spend less time on your phone and more in your self-care routine if you have 10 minutes to kill in between things you’re doing don’t grab your phone instead read a book, have a cup of green tea, meditate, do a happy dance, light a candle, take a walk and do all those little and big things that make your body happy. We always resort back to our phones any time we are free, Social Media is really a great thing for keeping up with people, getting inspired, learning new things etc etc. but it should not be a distraction for you. We all work hard and of course, we all need to take breaks. If you have accomplished a task than treat yourself with something good. Take a break if you’re starting to feel overwhelmed. I know I get overwhelmed easily especially since I make a todo list that carries a zillion of tasks and I get like OH My Gosh!! I don’t have enough time to do this and that. Don’t forget you have enough time to get things done if you start right. Not all work can be done in a day so when you feel stressed out take a break and relax your soul.

Digital Declutter & Break from Social Media

Now I will talk about 2 things in one tip. Digital declutter is as important as physical declutter. Store all the content on your computer into folders. And anything that you don’t need easy access to store it on a hard drive. Don’t forget always always backup your computer, laptop and cell phones this is the most important and crucial tip of all. If I lose my content by mistake I go crazy like insanely crazy. I cannot stress this enough so BACKUP guys.

There are many ways you can take a break from your social media and utilize your phone in a better way. We all have our phone next to us all day long so why not use it for a better purpose. I recommend you making use of the note app and the reminder app. They work as a lifesaver truly. If I think of something that I need to do or need to be reminded of when I m out and about I will make use of a reminder app. And using notes I will write down anything that comes to my mind or any task that I need to get done that day. It’s helpful for me because I get a lot of stuff running through my mind all day. Being a creative person I get a lot of ideas running through my mind and I don’t want to miss any single one of them so I would quickly add them to notes to work on later someday. All I wanna say is use anything productive from your phone to make a better use of it.

Just Do It Attitude

Make weekly goals. Put on tasks and goals that you really want to accomplish throughout the week, it could be learning new things, or bettering the older one. It will keep you motivated and on top of your tasks lists. Setting a goal for the week gives you some motivation to work towards. These goals can be about you, your work, your hobbies, your college, your Job anything. It can be anything from personal growth to picking up a new hobby. Just get more and more stuff done that your heart desires. And everything you are planning will only work if you have JUST DO IT attitude.

Don’t Pressurise Yourself

Don’t ever pressurize yourself with things you are doing. I know if you are a perfectionist like me you may feel a lot of pressure when doing daily tasks and living basic life. But try to take the pressure off yourself be proud that you accomplished some tasks, that you did your best at everything for the day even if you didn’t get every single thing done that was on your list for the day. If you try and manage to get at least one task done throughout the day trust me you had a productive day.

That concludes all of my tips on how to get your life together. I hope you guys will find this post useful and don’t forget at the end of the day it’s all about being practical and applying all these little tips and skills to your life. Just remember practice makes men perfect. Organisation is not something you are born with it’s something that you create within your life and grow with it.

November:Plan with me

October Spread

Hello people Happy November, for me it’s really hard to believe that this is the second to last plan with me of the year 2017. I started doing it a little while ago and honestly, I m obsessed with it. I get so excited when it comes to creating a spread for the new month, on the other hand, it’s so crazy and hard to believe that the year is about to end but anyways until then let me take you back through the month of October. I want to apologize as I could not post my October spread I was badly occupied with family weddings and meetups so there was no chance I could plan on posting anything other than wedding pictures. Anyways I will take you through the month of October real quick. The images I have shared below will give you brief ideas about how my monthly spread was and how well did I use it. Just trying my best to come up with different ideas and creativity every month. I first started bullet journaling in the month of September and since it’s only been 3 months I m still learning and bettering myself with lettering and doodles so if you think I m getting wrong somewhere please feel free to correct me. Also, comment your ideas below I would love to hear from you guys too.

November Spread

That was for the month of October and with all those things being said let’s move onto setting up for the month of November. I loved my October spread a lot and so decided to stick to the same pattern for November with just a little variation on doodles. I wasn’t particularly following any theme for this month. I wanted to try something different but stay minimalist with everything. I don’t like adding too much stuff on my spread also I don’t like when pages look clumsy and messy. My style is to keep things cute yet minimalist. The images posted below are in same order as they are in my bullet journal for the November spread. You can look into it patiently and learn how I designed each page. I was trying to go with the flow because honestly I was having no solid idea when I started but I was sure that I would do some doodles on each page like I did for the month of October but this time only flowers and leaves. I have used the same notebook I used for September spread also the same black stick and ball pen by LUXOR. For this setup, you don’t need any kind of drawing perfection or lettering skills I have added some random doodles I was liking at that moment. From this spread, you can clearly depict that you can go ahead and literally draw anything your heart desires and that’s what I did basically. No complicated designs and doodles needed but if you feel like you are in desperate need of inspiration check out Pinterest it’s the best way to get your dose of motivation. As I was having little space at the bottom I drew a little calendar on First Page!!

Next comes the monthly log I did it completely different this time. It was so much fun trying out new things. Instead of drawing calendar view that I have been doing lately, I switched it with this pattern. Basically, I wrote down the dates and left 2 spaces for each date to write down events and tasks. On the empty sides, I went on with drawing some flowers. Looks super cute and is also super easy to create. For the entire spread, I pretty much went with a bunch of flower doodles as they are so amazing to work on. I decided to keep all the headers pretty simple as they were going perfectly with the kind of vibe I was going for. Next page is my master to-do list and I decided to split it up into two portions PERSONAL and BUSINESS and also I added some checkboxes. The ones I m underlining are reserved for the most important tasks of the month.

Next moving onto the weekly spread. The weekly spread that I m going to try this month is completely different from the ones I have been doing earlier. Normally I don’t to this big weekly spread and that too in advance but I m gonna be very busy and occupied for November and so I just wanted to make sure that I have enough space for each day to put up tasks and not forget to work on them later also I didn’t want to wait and worry about setting it later. If you will look at the pictures given below you will understand how it works it’s pretty self-explanatory. I have made this for 5 straight weeks. As you can see I have marked down weekdays from Monday to Friday and for the pages with little space, I added weekend too. Leave at least 5 lines for each day tasks you would be needing it. While I was drawing this page I kind of realized that this type of weekly log would work best for me as I love writing down everything and its similar to filling a to-do list only it’s a safer version. I can go back and recall what tasks I missed and completed. I was having little empty space at the end so I added 2 blocks one for Personal tasks and the other for Bussiness purpose.

I love creating the tracker’s page a lot because it’s not too high maintenance and same goes with the expense page. I keep track of bigger purchases so its a lot easier for me to keep up with this style also it does not take too much of my page space. My tracker’s page is usually quite basic Also, I have added doodles with all the headers otherwise it would have looked a bit boring and honestly I m in love with doodling these days so I thought why not. I have added 4 Trackers Habit Tracker, Sleep Log, Social Media and Expence Tracker.

Next page is for the highlights where I will share pictures and thoughts at the end of the month. These pages are super simple to create and easy to maintain. I designed Brain Dump page aka Scribbles page to look like a mess which is what it’s actually supposed to be. Getting all the thoughts and mess I have in my brain straight out onto this page. I used it to write some note and doodles and what not. I switched from Brain Dump to scribble word for this month. I believe it sounds a lot better than the brain dump. Again this page will be quite simple and organic. I will fill it with random things, thoughts and doodles. So this is the page for all that crazy stuff, filled with everything that doesn’t go anywhere.

Next comes the journalling page I have got so much used to it as I love filling a journal. I decided to give myself a little flexibility and left one line space for each day. It’s perfect for when I have super eventful days or when I have nothing to write about. At least there would be something about that day I could use to fill up that line.

And that’s all with this month’s spread. I hope you guys liked it and I m also sure you guys will take a little inspiration from my November spread for your monthly spreads. Weather it be for this month or next. If you guys have any ideas or suggestion please comment down below. Will be back with an amazing post XOXO

5 Latte Recipes For Fall

I m a devout lover of all things coffee. Though I m not too addicted I would surely give up my morning breakfast before I would give up my morning coffee. I m in love love with my daily morning latte. As soon as I wake up every day, after doing my usual morning stuff I take my zombie-like, half awake walk directly into my kitchen, brew my coffee, froth my milk and prepare myself a warm cup of happiness and then I go and start my day. Now it is true I cannot start my day without a coffee but I only drink one cup coffee a day not more than that. I drink cafe latte specifically. Every now and then I crave for something different or a little different I would say. I mean who doesn’t want to add new flavors to life. The day I discovered these coffee drinks was just one of those days. These fall-inspired latte recipes are creamy and satisfying, a perfect way to get your caffeine jolt for the day.

Mint Latte

Wake me up with a mint green tea latte anytime any day. I have been drinking this mint tea latte every time I want a noncaffeinated drink. The nice depth of flavors and the froth made from the frother creates the perfect texture. I used whole milk and brown sugar as sweeteners but feel free to add some honey if you want to sweeten up your latte.

Ingredients:

  1. Half a cup hot water
  2. Tea bag
  3. 1 tbsp Brown sugar
  4. One cup froth milk.

How to:

  • Boil half a cup of water for about 30 sec.
  • Add mint flavored green tea bag to it. And let it rest for few minutes.
  • Add a tablespoon of sugar to the cup and mix.
  • Now froth a cup of milk in a frother or mixer and add it to the green tea mix.
  • Your frothy mint tea latte is ready.
Golden Latte

This year I so wanted to try the Turmeric Latte. All thanks to the Pinterest I was instantly hooked when I first had it. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory powder spice. When its paired with warm milk, honey, cinnamon, and ginger pure magic happen. For the past 2 weeks, I have been enjoying a cup in the afternoon when I m feeling particularly tired and crunchy from work or when I m in desperate need of something sweet.

Ingredients:

  1. Half ginger
  2. 1&1/2 tsp turmeric
  3. A cup of milk
  4. Black pepper for taste
  5. 1 tablespoon Brown sugar

How to:

  • Add a dash of milk, ginger, turmeric powder and sprinkles of black pepper to a mixer.
  • Blend all of them well.
  • Strain the mixture into a cup.
  • Froth a cup of milk.
  • Add milk to the mixture.
Earl Grey Tea Latte

What else can be a better way to start your fall without some hot beverages and I advise you cozying up with a rose and earl grey tea latte. I have to admit, my predilection for coffee has stunted my relationship with tea. I m making it a goal to get more creative with my elixirs for new year. So far I m off to a good start because I m thrilled with how this tea latte turned out. For me, I m addicted to earl grey tea and for this latte recipe, earl grey was a perfect choice. The result is a luscious, warm and insanely aromatic cup of tea.

Rose Syrup:

  1. 1/2 cup sugar
  2. 1/4 cup water
  3. 1/2 cup edible rose petals.
  4. Earl grey Tea

Ingredients

  • One cup whole milk.
  • One cup boiling water
  • 2 Earl Grey tea bag
  • Four tsps rose syrup
  • One tablespoon Honey or sugar
  • One tbsp edible Dried rose petals.
  • Rosewater

How to(make rose syrup):

  • Add sugar and water into a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • Cook until the sugar dissolves.
  • Turn off the heat, add rose petals and steep for 5minutes.
  • Strain through a fine mesh strainer, pushing on the petals to extract as much of the remaining syrup as possible.
  • Boil half a cup of water.
  • Combine the earl grey tea bags with rose syrup and steep in boiling water for 5 minutes.
  • Discard the tea bag.
  • Let it rest for few minutes.
  • Add one tablespoon Honey or sugar to it.
  • Froth a cup of milk into a frother to your desired warmth and foam.
  • Fill your mug halfway with tea and rose syrup mix and then add the frothed milk.
  • Mist the mug with a few sprays of high quality rose water.
  • Garnish with few dried rose petals.
  • Add dried rose petals on the top of the cup if desired.
Cinnamon Latte

I have got a perfect pre-fall latte recipe to warm you up a bit. I promise this recipe will make your fall better than ever. The combination of coffee, cinnamon and especially honey will get your back. Meet your new favorite coffee drink. I was a little worried that it will be going to be too sweet but when I took that first sip wooww!! It was AMAZING!! honey and cinnamon together tasted marvelous. Cinnamon, honey, and espresso- delicious!

Ingredients:

  1. One tablespoon sugar
  2. One cup milk
  3. Half a cup water
  4. A dash of cinnamon
  5. A dash of nutmeg
  6. 2drops of vanilla essence
  7. One shot of espresso

How to:

  • Make a shot of espresso.
  • Add espresso, honey, 2 drops of vanilla essence and cinnamon to the blender. Pulse for about 15 seconds until nice and frothy.
  • Pour into a cup.
  • Now froth milk into a frother and add it to the coffee mix.
  • Spoon foam from blender onto tops of lattes.
  • Finish latte with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of nutmeg.
  • Sit back take a nice long sip and enjoy.
Dirty Chai Latte

I first heard about the DIRTY CHAI LATTE this fall over Pinterest, while going through some vegan latte recipe to try this October. I was so intrigued by the recipe since chai lattes are already one of my favorites drinks and I had a sneaking suspicion that it could only become better with the addition of a shot of espresso. I learned how to make them and they tasted insanely delicious and so I decided to add it to my fall latte recipe list. Not lying but this dirty chai latte has now come to replace my usual chai latte and coffee as a drink of choice.

Ingredients:

  1. One cup milk
  2. A dash of Cinnamon
  3. One tablespoon Honey
  4. 2shots espresso
  5. 2drops of vanilla essence
  6. Chai tea mixture

How to:

  • Boil half a cup of water.
  • Add black tea bags to it or you can use open leaves and boil it in water. Let the mixture rest for few minutes.
  • Now add a dash of cinnamon to the mix.
  • Next, add 2 drops of vanilla essence and one tablespoon of honey.
  • Now add 1-2 shots of espresso to the above mix. You can add shots as per your taste.
  • I don’t like strong coffee so I used one shot.
  • Now froth a cup of milk and add it to the above mix to get your desired dirty chai latte.

So that is all guys, my 5 favorite lattes for fall. I hope you will love trying them and if you do try tell me which one was your favorite in the comment section below and I will be back with some amazing drink recipes for fall. See you soon people XOXO

End of the Summer Clothing Haul

Hey, Guys, I hope you all are doing well. I m seeing so many clothing haul videos on youtube and they all inspired me to come up with a clothing post too but mine is a bit different it’s basically “End of the Summer Clothing haul” post. I have been shopping a lot lately and that’s why I m super excited about it. I haven’t done a haul post from a really long time now so I thought why not start with an end of the summer clothing haul because I think its a perfect time for it(at least in my case). The reason why I decided to come up with this idea is because it’s not technically fall yet in my city. It’s still super hot in my hometown UDAIPUR, not a right time to put on any winter clothing item and on the other hand, I have still got a lot of time to rock my summer outfits. I did do a lot of shopping but dint got any time to share the stuff. But few of my clothing pieces are really cute and their cuteness made me want to share all of them with you guys. I think that’s enough for the introduction so I m just gonna hop right onto the products I have got. All the stuff that I will be sharing today is more summer inspired and it’s the right time for me to wear them before it gets super chilly here but you can also use all these pieces for transitioning into fall I believe they are perfect for layering. Enough said scroll down to see the stuff I got.

25 Things I’ve Learned In 25 Years

Hellow everybody welcomes back to my blog so today post is going to be a little bit different but anyways I m excited for it. While going through my list of post ideas (which is quite casual) I decided why not just sit down, grab a cup of tea and share some life lessons with you all. Also, I wanted to post this on my birthday but I couldn’t as I got caught up in few other things. Well, it was my birthday on 8 of September which is already gone I know but I turned 25 this year yayyee..!!! 25 and still killing it. I know for many of you guys it’s hard to believe that I m 25 but hell yeah I m. Every time I talk to someone about my age they are like “Girl Really, You look like 19???” and I m happy that I don’t look all grown up but anyway never judge a book by its cover I m much smarter than I look.
On this birthday I wanted to do something special so I decided to put together a list of 25 things that I have learned in 25 years. Well some of them are serious, some aren’t, some are life tips and rest are lessons and things I learned these past years. But most importantly all of them have a lot to do with me, what I m today and the way I have grown in 25 years as a person. This post doesn’t really serve a purpose unless you’re here to know a bit more of the insight of my life, the way I think and live it. But anyway I hope you guys enjoy reading this and if you do be sure to like this post also don’t forget to follow me if you haven’t already and let’s get started.

1. Do what you love and do it often don’t think about others.

2. Pay more attention to your thoughts and feelings what you think and feel is what you attract.

3. Don’t waste time. Utilise it in the best way possible because once it has gone it won’t come back. Timing has a lot to do with everything.

4. Don’t compare yourself with others you’re beautiful the way you are.

5. Not everyone thinks the same way you think and it’s ok to have different opinions. You can change your thinking anytime you want.

6. Create, if an opportunity doesn’t exist Create it if an idea doesn’t exist Create it. Never say no to new things and new opportunities.

7. Your feelings are always valid don’t be hard on yourselves. Take as much as time you need to heal.

8. Breathe in the FUTURE and Breathe out the PAST. Nothing is gonna last forever time is the best healer, forget about your past and start planning your future. Things will never go back to how they used to be and that’s totally ok as long as you ready to move on.

9. The most beautiful things in life are moments and feelings cherish them.

10. If it makes you nervous it’s worth doing. Explore you’ve got ONE Life.

11. Don’t spend too much time thinking about one thing, Just get it done.

12. Talk to others the same way you want others to talk to you.

13. Focus on positive and stay away from the negative whether it be a thought or a person. Keep yourself busy to stay away from negativity.

14. Know exactly what you want and don’t stop until you get it.

15. Get into a hobby, I m sure you’ll find one.

16. Invest in those who invest in you.

17. You will not like everyone and not everyone is going to like you.

18. Recognise your mistake and work on it instead of running away from it.

19. Try and learn new things, you can learn a new skill if you can just try as learning has no age.

20. Always be grateful to God for everything he has given you. Most of us take things and our life for granted.

21. Believe in yourself, you can shine bright like a diamond. Never hustle for your worth. Life can suck sometimes but everything will be ok if you just BeYourself.

22. You don’t need a reason to help others. Do it because it feels great.

Outfit Of The Week ft. Summer Dress

It feels so great and satisfied to be on work track again. It truly feels amazing to be posting content daily on my blog and trust me guys I have been working so hard for this. So getting back on today’s post as I have posted on TheDiyThursday and StyleitSaturday already I decided to post on WardrobeWednesday because it’s not technically fall yet in India also it’s no use posting fall fashion ideas it’s better that I stick with the end of the summer fashion for now. I will be sharing 5 outfits using one specific item and that is Long Dress. Also if You have been shopping and traveling recently you may know that’s pretty much all you can buy for now unless you buy a bunch of summer stuff on sale so I thought it will best if I share 5 of my favorite summer dresses with you guys which you can wear for an entire week.

It’s still super hot in India and all the dresses I m wearing in today’s post are more casual and summer inspired. These are actually some of my favorite go-to outfits for summer that I have been loving so so much. The story behind me falling for this kind of dress is I have been noticing girls wearing beautiful long summer dresses all over youtube and Instagram recently and they all are flaunting it in a super adorable way which actually inspired me to invest my coins on it too. I have been looking for long cotton dresses for a long time everywhere and why couldn’t I buy them is because either they are too expensive or they are not the style I want or they are cropped and don’t fit me well there were many many reasons. But even after facing such tremendous disappointments I finally searched on Pinterest for a kind of dress I want and picked out few of ideas, bought fabric and got them stitched myself. Trust me it was super fun to get the designed exactly the way I wanted. I was over the top excited to share these dresses with you all. By the way, 3 out of 5 dresses are designed by me and rest 2 I was thankfully able to buy from stores. They are so lightweight and airy which excited me to try all five of them ASAP.

August Favorites 2017

September is practically over already but still after all the stupid technical issues I have been through I decided to post My August Favorites, you got me right? Summer is not completely over yet and I think it’s the best time I post few of my summer favorites today. I m just going to be sharing some of the things that I have been in love with during the month of August. There are quite a few things I m super excited to share about because I m totally in love with them. Hopefully, you can try them out and see how they work for you. So without rambling any further let’s get straight onto my August Favorites..!!

Quote

“Do More Things That Make You  Forget to Check Your Phone”

And I would love love to start my favorites with this amazing quote that had a huge impact on my life. For those of you following me on Instagram know that I like to caption all my feeds with some inspiring quotes because its kind of inspirational for me. Every time I look at my feed I witness the positive side of it. I want to apologize for not posting frequently but m still working on coming up with some new ideas for my Instagram feed and blog. Awk enough said, let’s talk about my favorite quote now. Why was it my favorite because I really do believe in working on things that make me forget to check my phone I love keeping myself busy trying new things and being better at the one m doing. So it’s been a perfect quote to motivate me throughout August. By the way, I saw this quote on Pinterest well, all my feed’s quotes are basically from Pinterest because trust me they really have a cool quote collection in different categories and I love exploring quotes there.

Beauty Products

Ok, moving on to next favorite I will be sharing 3 beauty products with you all. First is this New CLEAR anti-dandruff nourishing shampoo. It has been a while since I have started using it and I can see the results already. I was using Loreal before but it does not suit my hair type so I gave this one a try and trust me the result was AMAZINGGG!!! also a little disclosure my dad actually got this shampoo from Kuwait and I have no idea if it’s available in India or not but you can check online. If you’re someone who is using Tresemme or Loreal I bet you leave them and try this one as its way better than both of them. Your hair stays fresh and oil free for up to like 4 straight days. I m not kind of person who likes a daily hair wash. Its 2 times a week for me but this one is perfect for all the busy people out there.

Next beauty product is this YARDLEY London English Rose perfumed talc. I m not a perfume person but I m more like a talc person (but not too much) after every shower I like to use this talc on my body as its gentle, refreshing and mild compared to the smelly and strong talcs. This one is from Kuwait as well. One of my favorite beauty products from Yardley is their Talc collection. They have such a huge and amazing varieties of fragrances I would suggest you guys try it.

Next is this YARDLEY London English Rose refreshing body spray. Again a light, mild and refreshing body spray to lift your mood. The rose fragrance is soo light and I just love it. I have used their lavender body spray too but this one is OMFG literally amazing.

Green Tea

Next, moving on to my favorite green tea. For this month I tried Twinnings Mint green tea. Perfect Summer-Autumn flavor. This time dad got me two Twinnings flavors Earl Grey and Mint Leaves. I have tried Earl Grey that but the Mint one is I m soo sorry but I can never get enough of it. I just can’t get over its flavor I like to sip in a full cup before my sleep otherwise I JUST CANT SLEEP. It’s been like 4-5 years since I m trying Twinnings (I can be their brand ambassador if they want :)) literally, I ask dad to get me big boxes of these green teas all the way from Kuwait because it’s hard to find it here in India and my obsession is making me do this. Cant help it Sorry, dad!

Youtubers

Next moving onto my favorite YouTubers and they are Rachspeed and Mylifeinabullet. Rachael (If m correct) is a lifestyle and fashion youtuber I love her and her channel because she posts amazing, cute and adorable outfits on youtube and Instagram. I came across her profile recently and have been in love with her since then. Her style is so natural and sober that I can totally relate to her. She is such an inspiration for me I would really suggest my readers to go and check out her channel.

My next favorite YouTuber is MyLifeInABullet girl. She is a journalist and a journal inspiration for me. I told you guys in a previous post that I quit my morning pages routine and switched on to this new bullet journalling thing and she was the reason and inspiration behind it. I love her idea of using a bullet journal but still combining tits and bits of everything from her life into it. If you haven’t checked out my Plan with Me: September post be sure to check it out. You will see what impact she had on me. The final result was overwhelming and I m super pumped up to fill up my September bullet journal and start working on the October theme as soon as she posts it.

Game

I was so involved in my work lately that I could hardly get time for anything. So busy that I couldn’t wrap my mind around anything for fun or to freshen up. No going out, no friends only work work and more work. It’s not that I have a problem with it I love doing my work and I m so passionately about it. Anyways just to distract my mind a bit I downloaded this game called Bubble shooter it’s amazing and fun to play not only for kids but adults too. Best way to get your mind off anything work or school. Just play and freshen up your mood. Also its free guys you can download it from google play store and have fun playing. I m still on level 50 working my ass off to go up and I bet you will get obsessed with it too.

Best Thing: Rainy Day Bucket list

So without going into further details, I will share about all my favorites in a brief as I have no intention of making this book for you to read. The best thing I did in August was creating My Rainy day Bucket List. All seasons naturally bring out the best in you. I really feel connected to every single one of them whether it be summer or fall. Doing season based things will help you enjoy the season even more. I just made a list of things that I would love to do on a rainy day like reading a book, grabbing a coffee with my friend, sipping a cup of tea. Things that make my day even more special than usual. BDW I love rainy season.

Make-Up

Moving onto my makeup favorites I would like to share 2 lipsticks and 2 lip pencils that I have been using for a while. These all are from the brand called REVLON and I have got them in shade NUDE ATTITUDE and. I wear it more often you guys must have noticed that in most of my Instagram photos trust me these products are long lasting which is amazing and that’s why I have been so obsessed with them. You can effortlessly apply it on your lips giving them an amazing Matte color. Pigmented and great quality for the price provided.

Movie

Moving onto my movie favorites, due to work I don’t have a lot to share in this category (shows and movies) this time but I will share one movie that I watched and it was Annabelle. Amazing horror movie full of ghosts and suspense. The actors have worked so well I particularly love horror movies out of all genres and this has been my favorite horror movie so far. I have seen the first part and it was perfectly connected with this one. A MUST watch!!

Accessories

My favorite accessories for the month of August have been these two pairs of vintage earrings which I got from a recent trip to Jaipur amazing place and amazing people loved staying there. I did a lot of shopping there everything will be up on my blog soon. But yeah I love this vintage and oxidized earrings as they look perfect with kurties and dresses I mean all kind of Indian outfits. And my second favorite accessory is this nude peachy clutch which I got from a local store. I couldn’t take my eyes off when I first saw it. So cute and girly and handly. It’s from a brand called YADAS. Comfortable and easy to carry plus goes with most of my outfits. It comes with a latch to put your arm in and carry. You can see me carrying this everywhere.

Book

I have been loving Cecelia Ahern’s LYREBIRD lately. It was my very first time with this author. I have heard a lot about her books especially P.S I Love You I so badly wanted to buy it but it was not available at the store so I decided to pick between Flawed and Lyrebird and the story of LYREBIRD seemed quite intriguing so I picked it. If you love such fascinating and thoughtful and beautiful story of secret romance and love I would highly recommend you read this one. Especially for girls who want to leave a high impact on this world with their talent you sure would love reading it.

And that’s all with my August favorites post stay tuned for some amazing stuff that I will be sharing in my September favorites. Leave in the comment down below what were your August favorites I would surely love to try them. Lots of love XOXO

It seems like forever since I posted anything. Anyways hey guys I really hope I m not the only one whose late on sharing the September bullet journal setup. In spite of all the technical issues, I finally decided to post this up because I have worked with all my heart for it.
Before I get right into it I would like to share how and why I started this. I used to work on a planner earlier to fill up my daily to-do list but the second it was full I felt so bored up. I was no longer planning on getting a new instead I realized I should try something different as I was no longer enjoying filling up that planner. I saw many youtube videos on “Plan with Me” for different months I got so inspired by it that I got 2 new brand new notebooks to get started. You can see how excited I got!! I didn’t want to let that enthusiasm and motivation in me to DIE so I worked on it THE next day. By the way, the notebook aka journal I used are from the Archies store, the collection was amazing I got so confused while picking up the two but then I decided to go with the quotes I loved. And also it was my first time with this bullet journaling thing so I decided not to complicate or overdo things and took inspiration from the youtube videos. God, there are sooo many amazing artists working with such an amazing creativity as a beginner it’s hard for me to match their level but then why not try and learn new things. I remember Practice Makes a Man Perfect right!!!. Out of so many amazing artists, I decided to go with MyLifeInABullet’s August edition as my September theme but il mention that I took ideas from many other artists too and you’ll see that below. Her theme is quite simple and cute which attracted me to try. I m not a person who likes to mess up with simple things neither do I believe in keeping stuff boring you know what I mean.
To see how I got inspired from YouTube to work on my very Plan with Me Bullet Journalling keep reading and as I I have shared almost every tits and bits about it now it’s time to get straight into it.

As I have told you earlier my beautiful notebook is from ARCHIES with this amazing and inspiring quote written all over its which says Stay True Stay You. A perfect quote to get me started. Also the pens I m using are classmate and Luxor pointed tip black pens. I m still learning how to use brush pens I decided not to experiment on this journal as it’s my first time. As a beginner, I will just go with simple black gel pens for now.

This theme is simple and super cute but if you guys have selected a theme for September already I would suggest you try this sometime later in future. If you will visit her channel which I m sure you all would because she is amazing, you’ll see I have tried my best to use her theme in my way and still kept everything look put together. Adding my creativity to it was a task but as I was doing it I kind of started enjoying it and got into such a great momentum that everything seemed simple later. The cloud theme which she used is perfect for the summer as it’s not wintering yet in my country. It’s such a great option for people who like to keep things a little-balanced example ME. Not denying I wanted to try something really different until I realized it’s my first time and I should not complicate things better keep it simple. Drawing clouds and paper planes is the best option if you’re a beginner like me as it’s fun to work with. Easy yet cute. Going for a simple design was my ultimate target as I was more focused on the content that I’ll be including into my bullet journal.

Keeping your theme simple and flexible will help you enough to keep up with it otherwise you are more likely to waste a lot of your time drawing or give you would give up or end up just filling in your messy to do list because it’s quicker and practical.

I m starting by drawing a monthly log, keeping it a bit different but also combining it with the standard calendar layout with the vertices version. And you can see this is what came out of it. To be honest with you guys I m not sure how my lettering and calligraphy has gone for this month but I promise to improve it for the next month cause I so badly want to do it. Moving on, my plan was to draw little icons with a different color so that I can see how busy my month is gonna be and what all things are needed to be done in this month. Using a pink highlighter pen I have blocked out some important days that are reserved for one important task. For example, I m going to be celebrating my birthday the next week so I have marked that out too. It will help me to take the time off and focus on one thing only and I did this for all the similar events and the bottom side I have used for a more detailed planning.

On the next page, I have added a To-Do List for the entire month. I will put up all the things that I want to complete throughout the month of September. It’s the best page because I tend to forget things but if I will put that up here I m more likely to keep a track of it. Just recall everything and write it down or you can add things later in future.

For this page, I decided to draw a monthly log with little more space basically it’s the bigger version of the one I made earlier. The reason behind making it this big is I can add a lot of things to it. It will work as my mini to-do list for each day doesn’t that sound great?? Admit it we all need a daily to-do list notebook to add things we need to get done that day and what else can be great if you have one mini added to your bullet journal. At least it’s better than putting work on a different piece of paper and carrying it when it has 100% chance of getting misplaced.

On the next page I was just having fun with my creativity you can do anything your heart desires. Just play with it put up quotes and things that inspire you. You can also put a picture or write anything you like. My point of keeping things simple and cute was to keep me motivated to use my bullet journal.

On the next page I added my habit and mood tracker, trust me I really needed this one. I have no idea how many habits I m working on currently but I will try and put up everything there I can remember. Little scared of how m I going to keep up with them but m so sure this habit and mood trackers will help me a lot to keep track of these things. The quality of my sleep also affect my mood throughout the day so I believe these two are important and connected to each other and that’s why I will need to add both of them.

The following page includes my Sleep and Social Media log. I m working so hard on my sleeping habits these days and this log will surely help me track at what time I wake up and go to bed. Another important reason for me doing this is actually I wanna see the correlation between the headaches and eye pains I m getting and my sleeping pattern. It’s obvious that I m not getting enough sleep but I still wanna give this thing a try as I hope it will help me more sleep.

I will also try and share it with you guys whatever happens in the next month’s bullet journaling. As I have mentioned it’s my first-time with bullet journalling but I will try my best to stick to it keeping it not just a one-time thing and fingers crossed will see how things go.

Next, I needed to add an expense tracker because I have kind of started feeling an urgent need of it to know where my money is actually going?? just adding things I buy throughout the month and I m done that all I need to keep a record of my money. I know I will find this helpful regardless. I have just divided the page into 3 section one for putting dates second to add the product I got and the third one is for the amount I invested. Simple eh??

On the following page, I decided to do a weekly log because I knew that I would be needing it. I added a weekly log, divided it into 5 blocks with different weekly headers, I was left with little space on the right side and I made use of it by adding two more blocks with heading Goals and Don’t Forget. Goals for things to be achieved this month and Don’t Forget for the tasks to be completed this month.

Next, I added the Brain Dump page I know I will use it more often as I have stopped writing my morning pages. This will help me get all the shit out of my brain right on this sheet of paper. Pretty helpful for a person like me. I love writing about goods and bads of life in just a line.

Next, I wanted to make a checklist for all the stuff I will be doing the entire month in different categories. For this, I added 3 different pages for my personal projects like Bow Ideas, Blog Ideas, and Photography Ideas. These pages will truly be used for filling specific details in the following categories, you can put any thoughts or ideas here anytime and work on them later. I really need to keep things all together so that I do not miss anything while I m working on any one of these projects and including all 3 of them into this bullet journal will keep me organized. I always write down things on a random piece of paper and they are most likely to get lost and nowhere to be found so this is the best way for me to keep a genuine record. Also, the best way to use your journal pages for personal projects like these otherwise, we tend to waste a lot of our time flipping through different work notebooks.

Next, I moved on to the journaling section. As I have told you I m not writing my morning pages anymore. I m super busy and occupied by my work for now and it’s not easy to fill up 3 pages about a day instead I thought why not include journalling into this notebook. All I have to do is write one thing about my day and that’s it. I think I liners are the best way one can describe the day. The best way to use each line is to make the summary of the day and put it up here. So that when you flip back through this month you can remember what all did. However, your day is good or bad you will always find something to write about it. Be creative share your thoughts, wishes what all you have been going through, your feeling, anything just get it all out. I believe ist a super safe and cute space to open up.

Lastly to finish off this months bullet journal I decided to make a highlight page nothing fancy or special just a simple highlight page which I will be using at the end of the month and while photographing I noticed that I already filled the page with some highlights that happened so far. I feel it’s ok if you fill it during the month if you are more likely to forget about it.

And with this, I m all done for the Plan With me Bullet Journalling SEPTEMBER edition. This is all what my minimalist bullet journal for the September would look like.
