Hobbycraft Geometric Planner Review

Hey Everyone. 

Everyone went a bit barmy earlier this year when Hobbycraft released a range of Planners.

For £12 I thought it was definitely worth a look so after much deliberation I ordered the Geometric planner.

I was actually really surprised and happy when it came. It’s very pretty but the best thing is the quality of it. The paper is beautiful and thick. 

I am using this as a blog planner. As the pages are already decorated it means it serves an entirely functional purpose as I don’t feel the need to decorate it.

The layout is not like anything I’ve seen before in a planner which makes it really unique. There is room for ideas, notes, to do lists, goals, a monthly overview and a week on 2 pages.

It also has an internal pocket on the inside cover and comes with 3 sheets of coordinating stickers. 

Overall I’m really impressed with it. I have started using it as I plan my blog posts in advance.

I am determined to stick with it for the entire year this time.

Thanks for reading.

My Week #2 (9th-15th Jan)

Hey Everyone, 

This is my first ‘my week’ decor post of 2017.

For this week I have used the beautiful Blake kit from Vintagerosestudios that I received in my design team package. 

I really like the colours in this kit. The black and the pink really pop. 

I have decorated the Mini Happy Planner and my Heidi Swapp work planner with them as you can see below.

Don’t forget that you can use the code Emma15 for 15% off £10.

The stickers are extremely good quality and the colours are perfectly vivid 🙂

Thanks for reading.

Planner Sticker Set Giveaway!  

Hey Everyone 🙂

Today I bring you a Giveaway.  This is in part to celebrate my 500 followers on Instagram but also to promote a lovely little sticker shop.

I was gifted 2 sets of stickers from ManagingMischiefCo,  one for myself and one for my readers.

Now I had the choice of sets and while there were some beautiful seasonal ones to pick from I picked something that can be used any day of the year.

The set is called the Pause and Reflect set. I intend to use mine for the first week in January. Why? because after the busy festive period it is the perfect time to Pause and just take a breathe and Reflect on the year passed and goals for the year ahead. 

This set is crisp, simple and elegant and I cannot wait to pop them in my new 2017 planners.

So what are the Giveaway details you nay ask. Please follow the instructions below to enter.
1) Giveaway is open Internationally. 

2)  Giveaway closes on 20th December and will be posted 21st December.

Confessions Of A Plannerholic: Disappointing Purchases 

Hey Everyone! 

So as you may have noticed there was not a Confessions Of A Plannerholic post last week. Us ladies have decided that we will switch to fortnightly posts from now on.

Today’s post is to discuss disappointing purchases we have made in our planner journey.

Surprisingly this was something that I struggled with a bit as I can’t say I’ve been overly disappointed with anything I have tried. I have however found myself less keen on things that I thought I would.

First off would be the Purple Malden. This was my unicorn and I finally bought it, I used it for a few months however as it turned out I preferred the Ochre. The purple is amazing quality don’t get me wrong but it didn’t feel as nice in my hands and the colour was slightly different to what I’d seen. This is apparently quite common with the purple style. 

My 2nd would be the happy planner. I loved the inside but it felt to flimsy in my hands, I wouldn’t have dared actually take it out of the house. The plastic covers while pretty did not feel functional at all.

The 3rd is the Lamy Fountain Pen. Now to be fair I did win this and was really excited by it but I just didn’t like writing with it. I don’t know if it was because of the medium nib or what but it just didn’t wow me at all.

I think that’s it really, I am lucky compared to some who have had very unfortunate situations happen.

Monthly Planner Kits by UglyBugDoes 

Now I’m not sure about you but I love a good monthly kit. However usually I find I don’t use the majority of the stickers because they usually don’t fit into my style of planning.

However as being part of the UglyBugDoes design team I am lucky enough to try Michelle’s kits.

However this time I got a full kit rather than one designed specifically for my a5 (usually missing boxes). This particular kit was grease inspired, and without giving away too much about how I’ve used it (you’ll have to wait until Sunday’s “My Week” for that) they are great.

Vibrant colours and I can guarantee I will without a doubt use all of these stickers.

The monthly kits are a new feature in the store and while there are only a few sets currently I know Michelle has more up her sleeve.

Each full kit costs between £8-10 and individual sheets are available for purchase too.

These are the kits currently in store.

Ghost (also available in personal size. 



1950’s Grease inspired 

I currently have all the kits except Ghost but that is definitely next on my list to try, especially with Halloween not that far into the future. These are also great for noting when you’re watching something spooky.

All sets are purchasable from UglyBugDoes Etsy
