If there’s one thing I love in the world – it’s stationery. Notebooks, diaries, planners, pens – you name it, I lav it. What better way to start your new year than with a brand new planner? If you’re anything like me, buying a diary is a very personal decision so I’ve got something to suit everyone – whether you’re a bullet journal-er, you want something to carry around in your pocket or something pretty to take pride of place on your desk.
This comes personally recommended. I bought this planner as my main 2018 diary. It has a day per view and splits your day up into ‘business’ and ‘home’ – perfect to keep your home and work life separate. There’s also space to add a daily motivation quote, your health and fitness plans for the day and what you’re grateful for that day. If you’re wanting something that will help your goals to be more focussed on you – this is the planner for you. Granted, it’s a little on the pricey side and weighs an absolute ton, but it’s made my year that little bit easier.
If you’d prefer something a little more handbag friendly, this Paperchase option is perfect. The week to view layout allows you to see exactly what’s going on in the week with one simple glance.
If 2018 is your year for getting it together – this is the planner for you. There’s plenty of room to add in all your hopes and dreams for the year. The daily pages allow you to add in those pesky 5 minute tasks you just can’t bring yourself to do, important times so you don’t miss anything important (like that new TV series) and a good thing about today. If that wasn’t enough for you, it also comes in the most b-e-a-utiful shade of pink.
The Happiness Planner – £35
On the same page, I introduce you to the ultimate planner. The Happiness Planner. (cue fanfare). This contains everything you need to make 2018 the happiest year yet. You can sit down every week and write down what you’re most excited for (in my case, this is normally what I’m eating). This being said it also looks incredibly heavy, so you may want to save this a spot on your desk unless you want a trip to the chiropodist.
One word – holographic. Ban.Do planners are renowned for being some of the best about and this little one is no different. Let’s start with the cover. This little slogan is perfect for convincing yourself and those around you that you are in fact very busy. Busy with what? They don’t need to know.
Last, but definitely not least. If you have your eye on one of these, I bow down to you. This Moleskine is perfect for bullet journal-ing (is that a verb yet?). Moleskines are always amazing quality. If you’re planning on starting a bullet journal this year, please let me know how you get on. I’d love to start one, but just not sure where to even start.
Happy shopping! Don’t forget – if you’re wanting to make a couple of little changes in 2018, I’ve written a post all about creating new years resolutions you can actually stick to.
