If you’re anything like me you’ll be obsessed with notebooks/planners, end up buying a whole load of them and then never using them because you’re fussy as fuck and I don’t like the layouts, for me the way a planner is designed is a big part, I can’t really get stuck into them other wise and I end up forgetting about them for months and before I know it it’s the end of the year and I have to look for another!
Well this year I can happily say I really loved my weekly planner, my sister bought it for my birthday which was in May so that’s nearly half way through the year and I don’t think I even used one before this purely because I wasn’t happy with any of the ones I bought myself. I’ve used it nearly every day since, and by used I mean filled the pages with everything so it actually looks like how a planner should look.
It’s from Cath Kidston and the front/back is a beautiful flower design, I didn’t hate this design but it wasn’t a cover that made me ‘happy’ so I covered it myself with some left of camper van wallpaper I had, this made it more personal and it feels like mine. It’s also flexible/bendy and floppy so it feels great to hold. At the front is ‘Month at a glance’ so you are able to see each month as a whole. It then goes on to each week being spread across the left hand page and a ‘notes’ page on the right – this is handy for those things you want to get done in the week but not a specific day.
At the back you have sections for Address Book, Birthdays, Museums & Galleries, Films & Books, To Do Lists, A Bigger Notes Section, Recipe Ideas and Shopping Lists which are very handy because they allow you to rip them out.
So when the start of 2017 came around I ran to Cath Kidston to pick up another! This was exactly the same so I was super happy and it was in the sale for £10 instead of £15, it was also a flower design and I stuck on a cute print from That Lame Company for some motivation!
This planner might not work for everyone but it definitely works for me, it keeps everything in one space and makes me feel much more organised with blogging as well as my personal life!
