BritMums Live was amazing for many reasons, but the gorgeous free notebook that sat in front of us on the table on day one was a wonderful bonus. You see, I’ve got a bit of a stationery fetish… I can spend hours wandering around Paperchase just stroking notebooks, flicking through them and dreaming of the moment a beautiful new pen inks onto the crisp, ivory pages. Gosh, this is getting steamy! So you can imagine my delight at discovering a gift voucher in the new notebook for a free personalised planner from Personal Planner!
I’ve been lusting after a designated “blogging” planner for a while now. My diary isn’t quite up to it, and as much as I try to use the calendar on my phone I prefer writing things down, and looking through something physical rather than digital.
So here it is!
I spent a good hour scrolling through all of the designs (there are many) and deciding exactly what I wanted in my blog planner.
You can personalise everything; adding your own special dates, and even deciding on the colour of the ruler and elasticated strap that holds the planner together! I love the kooky contact page in case you lose the planner. There’s even a plastic wallet to keep your expenses/business cards (or anything else) safe!
I eventually decided upon a medium planner (16 x14cm) so it would fit in my handbag. I fell in love with this bird design, as it reminded me of Twitter, and the design carries on throughout, which is wonderful as many diaries and notebooks tend to have a pretty cover and then are plain inside.
|On the train: My planner comes everywhere with me.|
Overall, I’ve been very impressed with my planner, and have loved using it so far. It does exactly what I want it to and I feel so much more organised and on top of my blog posts.
Prices start at £14.99 for a small planner (11 x 14cm) and go up to £19.99 for an A5 planner. They are available to buy on the Personal Planner website.
