Welcome to May! This is going to be a busy month for me. I have lots of fun YouTube videos coming up, and I will also be preparing to move! Luckily it’s not far, only a few minutes away, but moving is always a lot of work. I do appreciate the opportunity to go through everything and get rid of things though! This month, I created a lavender theme bullet journal setup. I also tried out a new habit tracker and some different weekly layouts. Keep reading for some bullet journal inspiration!

Even though I’m doing a lavender theme this month, I wanted to do something more than just a bunch of lavender for my cover page. The rest of my pages are filled with so much lavender, so I think it’s fun to switch it up a little bit. On this page, I drew a purple bicycle with a basket filled with a bunch of lavender.
Underneath the bicycle I wrote out the word May with a Crayola supertip marker, then went over it with a black fine tip marker.
Find joy in the journey.
This quote goes along more with the bicycle on the cover page versus the lavender theme, but I thought it was a cute quote. I did a mix of script font and block lettering, and filled the sides with lavender.
I ended up doing the same layout for the May monthly calendar as I did for April because I really liked it. I always do two-page monthly calendar spreads because I like to use all the squares to write down important or memorable things that happen throughout the month.
If you like to use calendars as more of a month-at-a-glance tool, then you could do a one-page spread.
This is a brand new habit tracker layout for me this month. I spotted this layout when I was scrolling on Pinterest, and now I cannot remember whose it was!
This month I am tracking four habits: reading, working out, physio and walking 6,000 steps.
I wrote out the numbers 1 to 31 down the side of the page for each day of the month, then wrote out each habit across the top.
For each habit and each day of the week, I drew a small black dot. You could leave this part out and use the dots as your tracker, but I am going to make a larger purple dot overtop of the black dots whenever I complete a habit.
For my mood tracker this month, I drew two large lavender stems, with one petal for each day of the month.
I then added a legend on the side, denoting which colour represents which mood.
For the month of May, I made four weekly spreads. I like to mix up the weeklies into one-page and two-page spreads each month. This time around I made the first two weeks two-page spreads, and the last two weeks are one-page spreads.
Thank you so much for reading this lavender theme bullet journal setup for May!
