Planner Pretties Haul

Hey, how is everyone? Well I hope. 

Today I am back with some of my recent purchases. The majority of which are stickers but well, you can never have too many of those right? 

First of all let’s look at the UglyBugPlans Watercolour Magic Journalling Kit. I’ve been eyeing this up for a little while. I’m part of Michelle’s tester group and I was lucky enough to get the Watercolour Witches sticker kit but I had to go purchase this as well. It will be perfect for the things I have planned.

Next we have a sticker order from a U.S store than I bought during a Planner Boss Collective sale and the shipping was really low. They took a while to arrive but the quality and designs are beautiful. These are from Templovescrafts

Next we have more stickers from LittleRainbowMoon. No makes the most beautiful stickers and this is by far one of my favourite shops. I bought the oppsie bag (pic 1) and I can only find a slight issue with 3 stickers on 1 sheet. Jo also sent me the beautiful Autumn set which I had lusted after for ages. 

Now we have stickers from StickyAcorn. I purchased these just before the shop went digital. They are absolutely gorgeous.

Last but by no means least we have a beautiful charm that was made by my friend Fiona from LittleDragonJewellery. This is the cutest and most gorgeous charm. I am still in awe at the patience that must be required for such small and delicate designs. That Toadstool is smaller than my little finger nail! 

So there we go. My recent purchases. I also have a couple more posts for this week as well. My PR Kit from YourWorldOfColour and a review of my Meadowgate B6 Violet TN so stay tuned.

My Writing TN Set-Up

I finally got my writing TN set up completed. A while ago I bought a second hand Meadowgate TN from someone who had customised it with ink droplets and it was perfect. 

I finished setting it up yesterday when my friend Kirstyanne brought me a NaNoWriMo insert for it. 

(I’ll drop shop links below).

I have put in it;

  • A NaNoWriMo insert
  • A general writing insert full of prompts, info, ideas etc
  • A insert with chapters and writing info for my current work in progress
  • A tasks and notes insert to track everything I need to do.
  • My writing journal

I also have some cheetsheets and resources tucked in the back pocket.

I am so happy with it, not just how it functions but the style of it. 

Now for the links.

Leather TN from Meadowgate Leather

NaNoWriMo insert from BugzPlanning

Lined inserts from Paper Trail Notebooks

Task Insert from The Punk Planner

Pumpkin clip from Stitch and Weave

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.

*Disclaimer : I am part of the Vintagerosestudios Design Team and received these stickers for free. All opinions are my own and unbiased *

Weeeee I received my first Vintage Rose Studios design team package arrived on Saturday and I was absolutely thrilled. There was so much to chose from.

The sticker kits sent were all Christmas and winter themed and are absolutely stunning. I also received some functional stickers which will come in really handy.

I received a mix of repositional, glossy and matt stickers in various sizes as I use a mix of planners.

The first kit is my favourite, it’s the Christmas in the Park kit and totally gorgeous. 

The next kit is the Christmas Shopping kit.

Next is the Gingerbread Christmas kit.

Then we have the December kit.

Then there were these functional stickers. A set of Social Media icons and some Header stickers.  There was also this cute sampler.

I can’t wait to use these kits. I will be posting on Sunday a My Week Planning post in which I will show how I have used them.

Also, as we know Black Friday is imminent and of course that means some brilliant discounts for everyone. Please see the picture below for details.

Latest Stationery Haul

It has been a while since I have had a good old latest purchases post. I don’t buy stuff often anymore as I pretty much have all that I need however, at this time of the year I always get that urge to change it up a bit.

First off we have the amazing Goonies sticker kit from All Things Paper. I was so eager to use this kit that I don’t have a picture of all the stickers so I have taken a pic of them in use aswell as ones I’ve saved.

1473748257392.jpg1473748606282.jpg

 

Next there are these beautiful foiled stickers from FiloFabulouss. Again I was impatient and ended up using a couple before I took pictures 🙂 The small weekend stickers were a freebie in my order.

1473748441506.jpg

Now let’s talk washi’s. I bought these gorgeous foiled washi from Jadiescrafts. They are brilliant quality too, perfect stickines and don’t leave any residue.

1473748475460.jpg

There is also this perfectly autumnal washi from A Beautiful Plan. Kelly sold out of this pretty quickly last time but has since restocked. It looks so pretty used. You can see how it looks in my previous post Confessions Of…Autumn Bucket List.

1473748512070.jpg

Next we have a little collection of items from Three Little Buhos. I ordered a Pen and some washi’s. I was also sent another washi and some Wizard of Oz stickers as freebies too.

1473748710876.jpg1473748665727.jpg1473748635916.jpg

Finally we have an autumnal ephemera kit that I ordered from the The Idea Owl sale. Donna over at The Idea Owl is actually closing her store to focus on selling subscription boxes primarily for penpals and TN enthusiasts.

1473748339646.jpg1473748378380.jpg

So there you have it. There will be a few more of these posts in the comig weeks as I have stuff that is due to arrive any day now.

Thanks for reading.

Half-Year Planner Set-Up Review

I know I am a little late with this post but they do say it’s better late than never!

When I started the year I had the lovely Leuchtturm 1917 in action along with a Ban.do and personal planner among others.

6 Months later I have to admit my set-up has completely changed.

It’s a constant ‘working’ progress to see what fits with my lifestyle, especially as it changes and evolves.

So let’s have a look at what I am using now. 

Wellness Planner by Kikki-K. This is my everyday planner,  tracks everything from cleaning, orders, appointments and expenses. This is by far my most used planner. The biggest change is that I have gone from personal to A5. I find this much better especially since I don’t take it out with me, it allows therefore for more use and purpose. 

Walnut Webster’s Pages Traveler’s Notebook. This is my blog planner and my most recent change. Prior to this I was using the Wellness for blog planning and a Carpe for everyday. I like having the seperate books which I can take out as and when necessary plus it’s easier to carry about if I need to take it out of the house. Plus how nice does it look with the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows charm from AlyMarinaCraft

Mint Webster’s Pages Traveler’s Notebook. This is a completely new addition with a completely new purpose. This is my creative ‘journal’. In here I have a journal, book journal, doodles book, quotes book and Projects. I use paints, pens and lots of ephemera in this and it is my favourite by far. It’s nice to have somewhere to just scribble, write, doodle and let go.

Nordic Personal Planner by Paperchase. I got this in the sale recently simply because I’d lusted after it since it was released in 2015. I wasn’t using this until yesterday however due to a new business venture I have now decided to use it to write down all the business specific things to keep them seperate and in one place. 

Adelphi pocket size by Filofax. I have so much love for this little gem. This is my handbag planner. It has details I meed to carry about for my job, volunteering job and everything I need to buy while out and errands to run. It’s not neat, decorated or anything. It’s just there to perform a function. If I am out and need to note something I will in this then transfer it to the right planner when I am home.

I also have two clipbooks for studying but they are literally only for that purpose and not decorated or anything. 

I think I have covered them all now. I have the new Reset Girl Carpe Diem in Ballerina coming in August as I preordered it. I will in all likelihood swap my everyday planner to that but I’m not sure yet as I don’t want the Wellness planner to not have a function.

Stay tuned for more info on my business venture as I am sure you book lovers will enjoy this:)

Thank you for reading 🙂

My Favourite Planner Supplies

I’m not sure about you but it doesn’t matter what I buy I still have some good old favourites that I go back to time and time again.

In today’s post I am going to go through all my favourite supplies. This will include my favourite pens, washi and stickers.

Pens
My ultimate pens are the Uniball Signo Sakura 0.38. I usually just order these in black but I thought I’d try the blue and red as well and I was pleasantly impressed. I don’t find the pen sratchy at all and the nib is perfect for me as I really like the finer size. They can be found on this listing via eBay
image

Next we have the Frixxon pastel highlighters. I love erasable pens but the ink usually isn’t deep enough in colour for me but these are perfect especially for highlighting my studies and such. I received these as a Xmas gift but I’m sure Whsmith sells them.
image

Next on my pen list are these little beauties. They have replaced my coletto and a fairly recent purchase. The colours are gorgeous and they write so nice. I got these from Hey Little Magpie.

Next we have stickers. There is quite a selection I go to for decorating. I’m not sure where most of these came from but I do love them. I’m not a fan of embossed or puffy stickers in my planner so these are perfect. I also use a selection of functional stickers. The shops featured in this selection are Smallstuffcreations , UglyBugPlans and Mrs Brimbles .

And finally the last if my favourite things… Washi! I have hundreds of them (437 to be exact!). However I have picked out my favourite 15 which include vintage, Boho and Harry Potter 🙂

Well there you have it those are my favourite planner accessories.

What are your favourites?

Plan With Me #3

Hello!

Sorry I have not done a plan with me for a while but I have been quite busy sorting out the new house.

This week’s decoration has been brought to you by the lovely Mrs Brimbles.

I have gone for a retro themed week this week, bringing it back with an 80’s feel (My fav era and years of my youth).

I like to keep things quite simple with decoration as I find too much tends to clutter my pages then my planner becomes less functional.

The stickers from Mrs Brimbles are her exclusive design, I love them so much I ended up ordering two more sets after this one arrived.
image

I also used the functional stickers from Small Stuff Creations that I linked in previous posts.

The glasses washi I believe was from Hobbycraft and the geometric design was from Lava Lamp Designs on etsy.

I did some funky little designs with some of my writing too as I’m really wanting to get more creative with my planning.

This is my finished look so far:)
image

I may start including my blog planner in the Plan With Me posts too, as I have recently started adding a little decoration to those pages too.

Thanks for reading:)
