Lucy Hall’s Social Media Planner Review by Jennifer Gilmour [Guest Post]

Hello everyone. I’m delighted to be blogging here on Emma-Louise’s blog because I am also a stationery geek. I would compare myself to Monica out of friends, I love to organise everything and if someone doesn’t put things back in the correct place they will receive a talking from me.

A little about me (other than my geeky love for stationery)

My name is Jennifer Gilmour and I am a young married mum of three children; Sophie is almost 8, Riley is 6 and my youngest Robyn is 2. They like crafts like me, my eldest loves washi tape and notebooks as much as me as well. I am an author and I love to blog.

You can find out more about what I do via my website and blog at www.jennifergilmour.com

Lucy Hall’s Social Media Planner Review

Today I wanted to review a product that has saved me worrying about my marketing plan. As an author it is important to use social media and your blog the most effective way. I have never had the time to think about how to set up a marketing plan and when I came across Lucy Hall’s Social Media Planner.

As you can see from the photo’s it has these beautiful pink flamingo’s as the cover and Lucy uses this throughout her media which helps for her brand recognition. The Planner is a 2018 Social Media Content Planning Diary and I have used it for January and already receiving results.

One of my favourite aspects is how the planner give’s you noteable days, tips for each month, challenges you to give your own objectives and your own important message for each month. Noteable days include days like; National Popcorn Day, Clean Off Your Desk Day, Compliment Day and so on.

At the end of each month you have the chance to recognise your achievements and I believe it is important to celebrate success even if it is the small steps to the big goals.

The layout of the planner is simple but yet effective, it has a classy feel to it. The colours are simple and the flamingo appears on some pages as a background throughout.

As well as the planner Lucy has a Facebook group for those who purchase the planner and it gives you a chance to ask questions, see updates from other members, network, receive training and theres competitions and giveaways which is always a winner for me.

I would highly recommend the planner to anyone who is looking to get organised with their social media, whether they are a blogger, have a business, are an author or are helping clients with marketing. At a price of £17 you have nothing to loose. I am looking forward to my marketing achievements this year.

Planner Reflections and 2018 Set-up

Hey everyone. 

Can you believe it’s the end of 2017 already? I feel this year has flown by. I haven’t been as active on here over the last few months but I have never been so busy. 

Like many people I suffer from twitchy fingers and I have an inability to relax meaning I take on far too much, which for me came crashing down when I got very sick in November. 

However, things are on the mend and I’ve really taken stock of 2017 and what I aim to do going forward. Tomorrow there will be a post as part of the Planner Girls Collective where I will share my goals for 2018 so for today let’s reflect over what I’ve changed. 

When 2017 began I was in a pocket size TN and enjoying it. About March I swapped back to a ring planner but it didn’t last more than 2 months. Since then I have been in a TN just in various sizes. I have tried personal, micro, A6 and now I’m in B6. 

I have cut back a lot on decoration and find I am rarely using washi at all and stickers are more for function and mild decor.

I really have homed in on what I need from a planner and the purpose it should serve. I no longer seek to have that ultimate pretty planner and lust after everyone else’s, it’s simply not for me. 

My 2018 set-up is pretty much the same as how I’ve finished 2017 which the exception of one Planner which I’ve introduced. 

So what am I using? 

For my everyday carry – do everything planner which houses a weekly diary, monthly overview, book reviews insert, to-do insert and 2 notebooks (dot and lined). This will be my B6 Cinnamon Stick Nayadori. 

I am also using the beautiful B6 meadowgate for my business which has a simple incoming order tracker, outgoing order tracker and notebook in. 

My new addition which is stunning is the Recollections horizontal planner with the Galaxy cover. I am using this for my studies. I learnt at the end of this year I need to plan my studies out much better than I am as my Masters is getting so much focus my diploma has fallen to the wayside. 

So there we have it my 2018 set-up. I would love to know what you’ll be using in the new year so feel free to pop me a comment below:)

Plan With Me 28th Aug to 3rd Sept

Hey everyone. Today I went very much autumnal in my planner. I used the Hello Autumn kit from My Planner Loving Heart.

I adore this kit and there was a huge sale where it was only £3…who could resist! You got so much with it that it will easily do me another 2 spreads.

I teamed it with my functional stickers from Your World of Colour and some autumnal washi I had.  

Thanks for reading.

Planner Girl’s Collective: Back To School Supplies 

It’s that time of the year again where Autumn starts creeping in and the children are preparing to start the new school year. For the older generation like myself we prepare for college or university.

I am going to be starting my Masters in Law so I have been having a look at supplies I need to gather.

As a self-confessed stationery addict this is probably the best thing for me to do lol.

Pens

I love the Signo Sakura Uniball pen but they are only available from Hong Kong so I order from eBay. I order a larger pack in Black.

I also have these in red and blue – this will be especially handy as I will need to colour code various things such as Acts of Parliament, Laws and Cases.

Highlighers

For me there is only 1 choice. Zebra Mildliners.

I already have the blue set to the right but I am debating buying the other colour set. You can get these from Amazon they do come in single packs as well.

Notebooks

I personally love the ARC notebooks from Staples. I have a few A5 and an A4 which I will be using for my studies. I love the interchangeable pages and that the paper is sturdy and good quality.

Ring-Binder Folders

I haven’t quite decided yet but I’m likely to get either these Kraft ones from Paperchase or these roll around ones from WHSmith.

Other than this I don’t really need anything. I’ve got rulers, pencils etc in the plenty.

Thanks for reading and don’t forget to pop over to the other ladies to see their Back to School Supplies.

Plan With Me 21st – 27th August.


This week in my large ban.do I have gone with a Supernatural theme. Using the last of the kit from UglyBugPlans which is now offered as a free printable on her blog.

I also decorated my smaller Ban.do planner which I use for Blog/Writing.  I used the Galaxy kit from TheGingerCatCo which I bought many months ago.

I’m trying to style my own inserts in my Micro which is used as an everyday carry.

Thanks for reading.

Plan With Me: 14th – 20th August 

Hey everyone, still planning in my large ban.do! Yay me. 

I honestly cannot remember who the sticker seller was for the large black and floral stickers, I’ve had them for years. They went perfectly with the same style stickers from Notes and Clips which I also used and the fictional stickers from Your World of Colour.  I also added the wacky holidays from the Your World of Colour as well.

I teamed this all up with some washi in black and white style. 

Thanks for reading.

Planner Pretties Haul: Christmas In July Event

Planner Pretties Haul.png

Well…July was a no spend month for me. In an aim to reduce my spending and save for Christmas and Birthday’s that are all due between October and December. 

I was doing really really well until…the Christmas In July Planner Sale Event at the end of the month. Then I went a litttttle crazy. I purchased a fair few printable inserts which I’m not going to show you and I also purchased many many stickers and a gorgeous paperclip.

Here is a picture of my haul.

The Shops….

I ordered from (top row to bottom row) Notes and ClipsFabPlannerPrintCherryBlossomintheMarketSquare and HazyDaysUK.

It’s safe to say I won’t need any stickers for a while, certainly not for Halloween and Christmas.

I also learnt a very important thing….no spends just lead to binge spends where ultimately I spend more. Lol.

I’d love to see any of your Christmas In July hauls.

Thanks for reading.
