Starting this month, I will be using the Archer and Olive A5 Rose Gold Notebook for July onwards as I’ve used up my previous journal. I only migrated the future log for the rest of the year and my online order tracker. I’ll still use all the other collections I have from the old journal until they’re used up. Also, I used the same theme/format as that of the original 2020 Bullet Journal Setup for the ones I migrated. I really just want to keep it cohesive.
I’m so excited about this month, so excited that I finished setting this up before June even started! I just didn’t have a lot to do and this kept me busy for a few days. I received a lot of positive feedback for my June Bullet Journal Setup and I was thinking how I could keep the momentum. And this is what I came up with!
I’ve been thinking about traveling, mostly day dreaming, and I know it’s still not safe to do so for the most part. So I’m bringing the daydream to my journal! This month’s theme are [some of] the capital cities I want to visit someday soon! 😉
A little disclaimer: the illustrations I used are from vectors and I’m not claiming them as my own. I’m keeping the illustrations black and white because I don’t want to mess it up by coloring it in. 🙂 I also had to research these landmarks/buildings on my own and some may not be accurate. I tried my best to match the illustrations, but after a while, they all look similar to each other! 😬
Starting off with the cover page is the city of London in England, second top favorite city ever. I don’t know, maybe it’s the queen or the red double decker buses or The Beatles! It’s a culture very far from ours and I want to experience that!
For the monthly calendar, I’m featuring the city of Sydney in Australia. I honestly want to visit Australia just to meet Dr. Chris Brown from Bondi Vet! I’m an avid fan and he’s just adorable. 😜 Kidding aside, I want to climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge and swim on Bondi Beach! I also want to experience the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland.
Next, I’m trying a different format for my habit tracker and added a mood tracker on the adjacent page. This page features the city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, third top favorite city. I’m fascinated with the rows of Dutch houses along the canals and would really like to see them and maybe buy souvenirs of my favorite houses!
WEEK 1 features the city of Paris in France. This used to be my ultimate favorite city, but is now bumped down a little lower in the ranks. It’s cliche, but I’d like to see the Eiffel Tower and possibly dine in one of the restaurants there. I want to try out numerous French desserts and pastries, walk along the Seine River and just have a romantic day!
WEEK 2 features the city of Tokyo in Japan. I think I’ve mentioned in one of my previous blog posts that we were planning to visit Japan this year, but obviously postponing. This is an ode to that supposed trip. I can’t wait to shop for a TON of stationery, go to Disney Sea and Universal Studios and of course, eat a lot of Japanese food! 😜
WEEK 3 features the city of Berlin in Germany. From its rich history and many historic and cultural landmarks to food and most especially, beer! I feel Germany as a whole is very interesting.
WEEK 4 features the city of Rome in Italy. Do I even need to explain when the entire city is a UNESCO World Heritage site??! hehe From the fountains to the Vatican City to the architecture to the pizza and pasta. Need I say more? 😜
Week 5 features the city of Dublin in Ireland. Ireland is actually my top favorite country to visit. Dublin just happens to be the capital! LOL I’ve been a huge fan of The Corrs since my teenage years and still to this day. Thus, the fascination with Ireland, not Dublin per se. 🙂 I’m open to explore though.
NOTE: I can’t identify 2 of the buildings. Sorry. 😬
What’s your theme for July? 🙂 I hope you liked my spreads this month. XOXO❤️, Lesley
