Getting Organized


While technology has replaced letters with e-mails, diaries with blogs, and love notes with text messages, there's something about a good old planner that my iPhone calendar will never replace. I normally jot down my to-do lists and appointments on post-it notes or scrap paper (I'm messy like that), but since it's the new year I decided to keep organized properly and get myself a planner.


I came across this colorful floral planner at a local stationary/lifestyle store and it immediately grabbed my attention. I love how it's compact and light, perfect for throwing into my every day purse.


Now hopefully I can stick to using this and stay organized from now on... it's about time!

  4. I can relate to your love of writing notes, as apposed to using technological means. I also want a new diary/ journal and I'm loving the Frankie, although it's a little on the expensive side for what is ultimately a notebook :/ I'm going to keep an eye out for a pretty one though! x

  5. That's such a pretty planner! I downloaded a couple of planner apps to my tablet before realising they're nowhere near as good as a physical one so I'm on the hunt for a good one now xx

  11. I just bought a new planner at WalMart of all places. Mine is much larger - slightly bigger than the standard 8 1/2 x 11 notebook, but it has tons of room for writing lists and has both weekly and monthly pages, which is something I really wanted. I loved the Frankie planner too but cringed when I saw the price. I wasn't going to pay that much for something I might not stick to (this new planner is an extra one for home/blog to-do lists - I have another one that is for work).

    Your planner is super cute. I hope it works out well for you!

    1. that's a good idea having 2 separate planners for personal and work. yup i feel the same, the frankie planners are so nice but i definitely was looking out for the price when hunting for my planner... mainly coz i'm not sure if i will be able to keep up with using it for the rest of the year ;) hopefully i can!

  13. Thats such a cute planner! I use a filofax to stay organised - I love that I don't have to change it each year and I can switch the pages around to suit me. As much as I love everything digital I can't cope with phone calenders - I just don't use them!

  14. What a gorgeous book :)
    I am such a note/list maker...I can't leave the house without a pen and note book. No form of technology will ever be able to replace it! :)

  19. I love how small it is! You're right, it's better to write down your agenda on paper than keeping it on your phone or mind :)
