Hello my lovelies!
Hope you're all doing well? The past few days have been pretty miserable for me, as I had to come home sick from work the other day with chest pains and dizziness. I'm still not feeling great right now, but I've been getting plenty of sleep in hope that I will feel better soon. Anyway lovelies no more doom and gloom from me... as I've been pretty excited about getting this post live. I've always been a bit of a notebook/planner hoarder, but there are currently three in my life and I just can't get enough of them. They are all pretty different, but equally amazing. This post isn't really a full review of each planner, but more of a sneak peak into each planner which I hope might be helpful if you're considering purchasing one of these gorgeous planners. I would love to hear from you in the comments section below or if you would like to get in contact why not use my social media icons to the right hand side for a quicker response.
Over the past few months I've been admiring the Happiness Planner and all of the beautiful posts related to it on Intstagram. Even though I'm a serious notebook/planner hoarder I decided to make the purchase and I'm so glad I did. I feel that sometimes I get so caught up in my busy lifestyle that I totally forget about myself and my personal happiness. The Happiness Planner really takes you back to basics and will help you with time management, financial goals and your own peace of mind! The happiness planner is full of inspiring quotes and each week you're encouraged to reflect on your week. Sometimes getting yourself in a positive place when you're feeling low is easier said than done, but this planner helps you to rationally look at negatives and look at how they can be improved. The Happiness Planner contains 100 un-dated pages with an introductory section, which helps to get you focused before embarking on your happiness journey...plus you can choose from three different colours. I'm still in the introductory stage and I love to spend 15 minutes a few times a week working on my Happiness Planner ( It Kinda feels like therapy ) - I would totally recommend this planner if you're looking to improve your happiness and general outlook on life (Plus.. Look how pretty it is ha ha!)
I'm the first to admit I'm not the most organised blogger and I don't always have content ready to go, so I decided to invest in a 'Bloggers Planner' which has been extremely popular within the blogosphere recently. I seem to spend what seems like forever on a laptop both in work and then at home, so I like to have somewhere to write down all my creative ideas at the end of the day. I just don't think you can beat pen and paper - do you agree? I decided to opt for the limited edition sorbet shade and I just loved the quote 'walking on sunshine' I decided not to put my blog name on there, as I didn't want to limit this planner to just blog ideas. I'm currently in the process of growing my brand Jewel By India R, so it's a great place for me to store all of my creative outlets. The Bloggers Planner is 12 month dated and contains a yearly view, monthly quotes, weekly content planner, stats tracker and many more amazing features for bloggers/youtubers. If you're looking for a great quality planner for everyday use and for blogging/youtube purposes then this would definitely be a great option.
After umming and ahhing about purchasing The Erin Condren Planner or The Day Designer I decided to see if I could find something similar, but slightly more affordable. I can be hit and miss with planning at times, so I didn't really want to spend over £100 (with shipping/customs) on something I wasn't 100% sure if I would fully use. I stumbled across Plum Paper on Etsy and was amazed to find a pretty similar looking planner to the likes of Erin Condren, but for a more affordable price. I was really impressed with the service from Plum Paper and they also have a good selection of add-ons including a blogger add on, which I actually really like. If you like to keep your planning all in one place then I would 100% recommend the Plum Paper Planner and would say it's definitely the most versatile out of the planners in this post. There is definitely enough space to organise your personal life, work and blog (if you wish) and this is the planner I take around with me on a day to day basis.
The shipping slightly varies for all of the planners above, but all of them came in at just under £35 including shipping. The 'Plum Paper' Planner & The 'Happiness Planner' were both shipped from the USA, but I did not have to pay any additional charges *yipee* Obviously, I can't guarantee that will be the same for everyone, but it might be useful to know if you're thinking of ordering one of these beautiful planners for yourself!
I hope you've enjoyed this post lovelies? - I would love to know what planner you would choose from today's post OR are you more of a digital planner?
Lot's of Love
