Planner update! 

I am officially in love with planning! My latest beauty is the Kate Spade gold dot planner and it is gorgeous! I originally started with a black Filofax executive week to a page with appointments as I felt it looked the part for my day job but to be honest I’ve not really gotten along with it. I find the inserts incredibly boring and there isn’t really enough space to bee creative. I still use it but mainly so I look important and professional in front of clients when arranging future meetings. *cringe*

I’m in a group on Facebook called “UK Planner Addicts” and someone posted a picture of their Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI) Create 365 Happy Planner and I instantly fell in love! Thus began a whole evening (and well into the early hours) of trawling the web trying to find one. I came across their website, which has videos of each planner and the layout inside (see below for link) and whilst I loved the look of the “My Life”, I was sold on the “Gold Dot” because of the beautiful quotes and affirmations. I love the layout and whilst I’m a bit disappointed with the flimsiness and tabs, I’m quite proud of it. (The newer planners now have laminated tabs)

That brings me nicely on to my new pride and joy! The Happy Planner goes beautifully with my desk set up and so I wanted cream and gold accessories to tie it all in. I ended up getting the Kate Spade pencil case but can’t quite bring myself to sharpen and use the pencils that come with it! Anyway, the quality is amazing and gave me the “bug”! I’ve now added the Kate Spade Gold Dots 17 month planner and its lush! The pages whilst delicate, feel really good quality and the tabs are laminated. I love the board casing as it feels so much sturdier than the MAMBI Happy Planner. This is definitely my “carry about” planner and I can’t wait to get started! Needless to say, my Happy Planner is now my desk planner­čśĆ
