NEW! #hollifeholidays BuJo challenge (October)

I recently reached 500 followers on instagram (I’m actually nearer 700 now) and as a celebration I thought I’d create my own instagram challenge for me – and hopefully others – to participate in from October onwards! Read on to find out more…


The challenge name is Hollife Holidays, with the simple hashtag #hollifeholidays. The idea is simple: ‘do’ the challenge each day (it’s up to you how you interpret the prompts) and upload your pics to instagram, the Bullet Journal Society Facebook group or your blog and make sure to use the hashtag and tag me so I can see your beautiful creations! My instagram username is hollife.journal and I will of course be uploading the prompts there too as well as showing you my doodles each day. Without further ado, I will show you the prompts!

To complete the challenge, you could doodle each day like me, write a short journal piece, mark the prompt in your calendar, do an activity relating to the prompt (e.g. eat mouldy cheese on mouldy cheese day) or photograph something relevant to the challenge.

For my challenge spread I’m going to be creating a calendar to fit the theme and write each prompt in, then doodle in the box. It’s super simple but works really well! I will be uploading a ‘reminder’ post on the 30th September so keep an eye out for that.

There’s not much else to explain! Except that, yes, all of these holidays are ACTUAL holidays on the ACTUAL days in October. It’s amazing. Thank you to Kelsey Lynn for the idea that I gratefully took and expanded upon (she’s also the amazing admin of the BJS Facebook group I mentioned – Yep, BJS. Don’t laugh)!

Here are the prompts in text form rather than in the graphic if it’s too small to see on a phone screen:

  1. vegetarian day
  2. farm animals day
  3. virus appreciation day
  4. taco day
  5. teachers day
  6. noodle day
  7. frappe day
