Ugly Bug Does September! Box Unveiling :)

*Disclaimer – This box was given to me free in exchange for an honest review and part of my design team duties. Non -payment does not alter my opinion in any way. *

It’s that time of the month again…UglyBugDoes Planner and Stationery box unveiling 🙂

This months theme was Autumn and Halloween. Both favourites of mine so I was really excited to see what was in the box.

I was not disappointed at all.

The whole box is just a whole load of gorgeousness.

So let’s have a look at the contents.

First of all the stickers and charm. Both made by UglyBugDoes. I love this charm, it’s found a place on my new planner.

The fox paperclip is from Scarlet Moon Crafts and is absolutely gorgeous. 

There was a gold pen and autumn themed washi also in the box. 

I really love the little halloween sequin bits that were floating about in the box which I’m saving to use in my art journal.

Again another winning box from Michelle.

Michelle also has some exciting new arrivals coming our way.

The release of a new art journal supplies box containing things such as paints, stamps, atc’s, ephemera etc.This is currently available as a test run but there are only 6 boxes available but you have got to get in quickly. UglyBugDoes Art Journal box 

And *drum roll*…. UGLYDORI that’s right UglyBugDoes TN’s! I will post when these are available but look at the pockets of the prototype. 

Thanks for reading and don’t forget the November box is now available for pre-order, snowflakes! That’s all I’m saying:)
Don’t forget to pop along to the UglyBugDoes FB group for sneak peeks and info:)

My Week 

This week I have gone for a slightly enchanted autumn set up. I love these stickers which are a mini kit from Handcrafted By Sheree

This week is a big week for me as I start college on Thursday to do Principles Of Business Level 3 so I’ve also decorated that spread as well.
For my college spread I’ve gone with the ‘Famous Boy Wizard’ set from Ugly Bug Does. Just because I can’t go to Howarts doesn’t mean it can’t come to me lol.

The Harry Potter washi tapes were from Collecting Life.

Next week I’m hoping to have my Blog and Business planners done to show you also.

Thanks for reading.

My Blog Planner

I decided that I was going to focus and improve my blog more in 2016. To do this I knew I would need to implement a routine and for that I would need a planner. Originally I was using the large Ocean Kikki.K, however my wonderful partner bought me the beautiful Wellness planner for my birthday this month.

When the planner arrived I took out the inserts and put them into the Ocean planner and set about making my new one perfect. I really wanted something that was cute and pretty as well as functional. I love the Grey of the Wellness planner, I feel this looks more professional and contrasts the fun mint green on the inside. I don’t usually bother much with internal pocket prettiness, mainly because my Malden is hard to cater for with them been vertically challenged.

However the Wellness planner pockets are a great size and location for me to do things with. In the top pocket I have a mini notebook for any notes I need to quickly jot down. This was from Wilkos and has a cute heart design. I also have my name paper-clip just behind so it pops up above the notebook, I love the colour of the clip and it fits perfectly with the colour scheme. It was made for me by Michelle at Uglybugplans. Just below the notebook I have a Planner Nerd paper-clip which was made by Cherryblossomsinthemarketsquare and then in the bottom I just have a little butterfly from the Kikki.K dashboard set. My first page is a drawing done for me from one of the ladies in UKPA and a journalling card from the Kikki.K dashboard set.

My first section is my calender. This is where I plot out my blog posts for the weeks ahead and make any notes of posts I may like to squeeze in.

I also have my Kikki.K stickers and a little wallet in this section where I keep washi sample sheets and other little bits.

After this I have my Ideas section. This for all my blog post ideas, things I want to look into to, research, brainstorms etc.

My next section is for Planning. This is where I draft all my posts and write down what I want my post to look like, and sound like.

Next is my stats section. This is where I list my monthly statistics so I can track how things improve or decline, what maybe popular and what isn’t.

My next section is to record all books I read that I may want to review. I use the Book inserts from the Kikki.K for this.

Next is my To-Do section. This is pretty self explanatory. I keep all the things I would like to get done with my blog and tasks for blog posts.

Finally, to set it all off I have this gorgeous little charm from UglyBugPlans 🙂
