This week something happened that most of the planner community will have heard about: the Erin Condren launch! EC launched their 2017 life planners and the internet pretty much crashed… Yeah that’s right, their launch crashed the internet. Seriously.
My Facebook feed was full of talk about it. Planner groups on Facebook would have tons of daily posts about it (they are still happening!).
So, I think it’s only fair that I dedicate this week’s post to Erin Condren and the beautiful community they have helped to build. Now I couldn’t get all of this to fit in one post, as it would be too long to encompass all of this amazing into one… so I’m splitting it into two parts. Today is part one of the two part series. This will be a quick flip through my 2016 EC life planner and initial thoughts from it…
I also have a discount for you later in the post so stayed tuned!Read More »
Filofax released their special edition Gold Saffiano earlier this month. I had it on pre-order and so, it arrived at the start of October but sadly, I haven’t had enough time to set it up yet so I thought I would get started today with an unboxing. I purchased the Personal sized Filofax from Speedy Hen to set up as my first Christmas Planner (so I should definitely get started on this soon!). The Gold Saffiano has a classic leather-look cross grain effect, which I think is great because you get the leather effect but it’s not made of real leather and that’s perfect for me. The Gold is such a beautiful colour and it really reminds me of Christmas, so I’m very excited about this planner right now! Surprisingly, this is actually my first Filofax so I’m super excited to get to the unboxing and see what’s inside!Read More »
Back in July, I briefly spoke about the planners & notebooks that I use to organise my life and one of those was a Paperchase personal organiser. There I talk about how I use the planner and the reason I purchased it. I also mentioned that I have some pretty inserts and since then, I have been asked a few times to do a planner setup and show you around the inside of this beautiful organiser. And I’ll admit, it’s a lot harder to capture the setup in photos so I ought to have done a video. But this is a blog (and I currently don’t have a good method of filming) so I thought I would just to have to try my best to show you around with tons of photos and a very indepth description!
This planner has been my main organisation tool since I first brought it, around four years ago. Every year, I buy some new refills, whack those in and bam, we’re ready for the next year! Normally I opt for the plain Paperchase 12 month refills but last year, I came across a set of refills that they did (but they were quite hard to find). These were not available online when I purchased them but they were available in some of the stores. However, they are available this year – both online AND in store!!
