I’m baaack! Not as soon as I hoped to be, but better than I’ve been doing. Today I want to talk about my new planner! I am obsessed with planning and organization (though you’d never know it if you went through my stuff). I weighed my options between Erin Condrin, Kate Spade, and this My Happy Planner. Obviously the Happy Planner from Me and My Big Ideas won. So today’s post I’m going to show you the unboxing and go through my first impressions of the product. Once I’ve had a chance to do a few good spreads I’ll do an update post showing you how I lay out my daily schedule as well as the monthly view.
This is the box it arrives in. As you can see the box is 12x12x2 so it definitely wouldn’t fit in my mail slot. Fortunately the community boxes have several over sized boxes at the bottom so the mail man just put it in one of them and left the key in my slot. But the box is boring, so lets get to the fun stuff.
I ordered the Gold Foil Dot Planner and a set of Neutral To Do Stickers. They came packed up nice and safe. Nothing was damaged when it arrived.
So here’s the planner itself. Pictures really don’t do it much justice. The white is crisp and the gold foil dots look great in the light. I will admit that I really wanted the My Life Planner, but it was sold out at the time I ordered. I am really glad I got this one though. I think its just so beautiful with the shiny gold foil dots on the crisp white background.
This planner also has tabs separating the months. I’m some older reviews on YouTube people were saying the tabs weren’t laminated, but these are. After a lot of reviews its probably something they changed. Nice to know there are companies that listen to peoples feedback, right?
Here’s the monthly spread. It’s pretty typical. It has space along the side for notes, which is nice for writing in extras or things you need to remember to schedule.
This is the weekly spread, and by far my favorite thing about this planner. I love the vertical layout as opposed to the traditional horizontal one. It too has space for notes along the side for things that need to be accomplished at some point during the week, not necessarily on a specific day. They also have little quotes along the bottom margin. This one says “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”.
Last thing I want to show you guys are the stickers I ordered. These are the To Do Stickers in Netural. There are six pages all in the same color scheme with little reminders for things like travel, appointments, and to dos.
I am absolutely thrilled that I went with this planner over the others. Like I said earlier I’ll do an updated post once I’ve done a few spreads so I can show you how I organize and decorate this planner, along with some DIY stickers and great finds on etsy.
Until next time, thank you so much for being around though all the craziness that’s been going on lately. I’ll have an update post hopefully in short order so you guys know what’s been going on. Just know that I’m so thankful for you guys and I’ll talk to you soon!
