Getting Organised this Christmas

I can’t believe it’s December already, I definitely am not ready for Christmas… are you?  We’re only a few weeks away!  It’s prime time to get organised for Christmas – otherwise nothing will be done!  I’ve brought the odd thing or two, almost got all of the ideas for gifts sorted.  But if you’re like me, you may also be really behind with this year’s Christmas planning!  I did a bit of a search to find some products to inspire me to get organised.  More importantly, organised quickly – as there isn’t much time left.  I found a few products that I wanted to share today and came up with three different options for you to get into your Christmas planning.  Let me know if you find any of them useful too.

Busy B Diary 2018

Busy B Diary 2018, Page Markers and PensIt’s never too early to plan ahead and pick out what stationery you could use in advance.  As it’s November, it’s a great time to start looking around for your 2018 diary.  I’m super excited to say that I think I’ve found the perfect one for me to carry on the go!  The Busy B Diary 2018 range has been released!  More than that, however, they are functional and oh so clever!

I am even more excited today because this is actually the first product I have received as a new Brand Ambassador for Busy B!  I am thrilled with this role as this is a company I adore.  I’ve previously featured some of their products on the blog, such as their fantastic Birthday Card Book or Address Book.  Honestly, I think I’m in love with all of their products so this is a perfect role for me.

Today we are looking at the Busy B Busy Life Diary from the “Contemporary” collection.  They also have a Busy Life diary from the “Pretty” collection, which features a lovely floral pattern.  Both of them are the same on the inside but have a different appearance.

Busy B Birthday Card Book

Busy B Birthday Card Book, featuring the Address Book too

Today’s post is a review of a product I’ve been eyeing up for a while but have only recently got my hands on: the Busy B Birthday Card Book.  This book was designed to help you remember your loved ones’ birthdays, helping you to plan ahead.  It’s a one time investment as it’s got a perceptual calendar.  This means, you don’t have to worry about getting a new one every year or remembering all of the dates from the top of your head whenever you get a new diary.

* Say Nice Things: Crystal A5 Journal

Small independent stationery companies have always been close to my heart.  No matter what the industry is, supporting small businesses is important.  Not only are you helping people achieve their dreams but you may also find a new favourite company to shop from.  Often, the best part about finding small businesses is discovering the unique products that they offer.  These products may even be better than the ones offered by the well known brands.  Today, I’m thrilled to be able to share a look into one of the products from a small company called Say Nice Things.

Say Nice Things offers journals and notebooks in beautiful covers.  Today’s review looks at the Crystal A5 Journal*, which has a gorgeous cover in an array of pastel colours.

How to find motivation to read more

reading

Last week, I shared 35 resolutions that will help you to become a better you.  It wasn’t just for you, it was for me too.  One of those was to “read more” and it’s one that I really need to do.  So I thought I’d make that resolution one of mine for this year, making it apt to share how I plan to do that this year.  I don’t read enough, in my opinion and I’ve always said that “one day, I’ll be a read more”.  Of course, one day never really comes, does it?  So with resolution 14 in mind, I’ve decided to actually pick up some books that I’ve been meaning to read but never got around to it.  And let’s be fair, the best way to achieve a target you probably wouldn’t have planned to achieve is to set up something to motivate you to do it – and that’s where this post comes in handy!

In my searches, I came across a few things that I’ve started to do or am planning to use – in the hopes that they’ll help me to achieve my goal & in turn, also help you to do the same.  I thought I’d share a few of my favourites here today.

Let’s Get Organised – Introduction

I’m very excited today!  My planner addiction is something that everyone who knows me knows about…  It’s never been good for my bank balance or for the storage space in my room but today, that addiction is coming into a lot of use.  I’ve decided to revisit some aspects of my life to redefine them, make them better and quite specifically, make them more organised.  This organisation is the first stage to bettering myself in these ways and I have decided to share my journey with you, in the hopes that something will be useful to you and might help you to organise any aspects of your life that you wish to organise!  So let’s get started, let’s get organised!

Erin Condren Life Planner 2017

EC Life Planner 2017 - 4In honour of the Erin Condren launch of the new 2017 life planners, I have dedicated two posts to it (yes, TWO posts in ONE day?! Say whaaaat? I know, very unusual for me… but it was just way too long for one post).  You can find part one over here.  If you are new to EC life planners, I would recommend you pop over to part one as that will give you a good overview of what the life planner is and some photos of the inside.

Here, I am going to talk more about the new features and what I love (or don’t love) about them!  So I am assuming you’ve read the first post or already know about Erin Condren life planners… Continue reading “Erin Condren Life Planner 2017”

Erin Condren Life Planner 2016

Erin Condren LifePlanner 2016This week something happened that most of the planner community will have heard about: the Erin Condren launch!  EC launched their 2017 life planners and the internet pretty much crashed…  Yeah that’s right, their launch crashed the internet.  Seriously.

My Facebook feed was full of talk about it.  Planner groups on Facebook would have tons of daily posts about it (they are still happening!).

So, I think it’s only fair that I dedicate this week’s post to Erin Condren and the beautiful community they have helped to build.  Now I couldn’t get all of this to fit in one post, as it would be too long to encompass all of this amazing into one… so I’m splitting it into two parts. Today is part one of the two part series.  This will be a quick flip through my 2016 EC life planner and initial thoughts from it…

I also have a discount for you later in the post so stayed tuned! Continue reading “Erin Condren Life Planner 2016”
