National Stationery Week – Get Organised Day

PlannersGet organised day?  That can only mean one thing in my books – planning day!  This is clearly one of my favourite themes simply because it means I get to include pictures of the planners that I love for no other reason than to share them with you, because I love them.  Planners are an essential part of how I organise my life.  I have previously shared how I used 3 different planners on a regular basis.  I am currently changing everything up again so I will be sure to share this with you once I have the new set up.

If you’re new to planning or don’t use one – please consider it!  Planning has really helped me to figure out my dreams, goals and to start reaching them.  Without it, I would be lost and I certainly would not have achieved all of the things that I have achieved today.  I love seeing my goals getting ticked off and my dreams coming closer – and I would absolutely love to see the same for you.

So let’s talk about planners today and my thoughts on how to get organised!  Now there’s tons of ways to use your planners – I think I once made a list that was too long to fit on a single page… Whoops!  But these are a few of my favourite ways to get organised…Read More »

CheekyBoo Haul

CheekyBoo Haul (6)This haul is a bit overdue, as I purchased these items a little while ago!  However, these items from CheekyBoo are just so stinking cute that I couldn’t bring myself to use them and ruin their beauty.  I’ve finally managed to get around to opening them up & testing them out and thus, can now review the items and let you know what I think.

The order arrived really quickly and more importantly, it arrived in super cute packaging!  The items inside were wrapped so nicely too that it was more like opening a present than an order.  I really love when companies take a few moments to make your order a little bit more special.  The thought and extra time they put into wrapping your items nicely shows how much they value your order, in my opinion.  CheekyBoo wrapped the items I ordered in really cute and pretty tissue paper, using some washi tape to seal it up.  Without much further ado, let us get into the items that I purchased.  These might just include perfect presents for Christmas!Read More »

* Calepino Notebooks: No.4 Papier Dot Grid

I am quickly falling in love with Pocket Notebooks and the convenience of having one of them on me at all times. This is a market that is dominated by the names of Word Notebooks and Field Notes but the Calepino Notebook* is not one to dismiss.Calepino Box - Set of 3 Notebooks

I’ll be honest with you, before seeing these I had never heard of Calepino before and was curious to see if they could compete in this market. Tony over at Studio Alt introduced them to me and as I was contemplating purchasing a pack, I got a message saying that there’s “a little something on its way” to me. And this was the Calepino Notebooks, No. 4 Papier Dot Grid. It was such a pleasant surprise so thank you, Studio Alt! These little badboys have been made in France – and they are definitely teaching me that I need to look out for stationery stores when holidaying across Europe because it would be so worth it!

How I Plan: Current planning tools & systems (& Discount Code!)

Promo 1

I constantly tell people that I’m a Planner Addict and live by my planner. It doesn’t make me any less spontaneous as I am constantly jiggling things around to fit any last minute plans or will happily go do something out of the ordinary if I have no other pressing plans. But it does help me to see what is important to do and to remind me of the things I need to do but have simply forgotten about. (Surprisingly, the latter happens a lot). The problem is that people tell me about an event or deadline weeks – if not even months – in advance so I always end up forgetting the exact details by the time it comes around unless it’s in my schedule. Being a “Planner Addict” also does not mean I own millions of Filofax planners – in fact, I currently own 0 (perhaps something to change one day). So I wanted to introduce the different planning tools that I currently use and the system I enjoy. Mostly, it’s things that I’ve acquired on a small budget as I got most of them whilst I was a student / before I had a full-time job so it’s great for a cheap alternative to some of the other planning tools available.

Chroma Stationery Notebooks

DSC_1486

During National Stationery Week, there was a Notebook Day and in honour of that day, I just couldn’t resist ordering two notebooks from Chroma Stationery. I’ve been using those for a little while now and so, thought I would share my opinion of them along with some pictures. If you have not heard of Chroma Stationery before, it’s a website where you can purchase fully customised notebooks. Everything from the cover of the notebook to the paper inside – all included in the price so you know what you’re paying from the onset.Read More »
