Last year has been really good in terms of blogging and new contacts in the beauty world which also meant more work. I started scheduling my posts and organizing my work with the help of lists and planners. Tbh it was more of a simple planner i bought from superstore and it helped me in terms of making lists, getting more organized and planning ahead. However, the space for each day in that planner has always been an issue. Plus it was bulky for me to carry in my bag in case I want to stick to my schedule when I am out or on a holiday.
This year I am doing even better by sticking to planners and notepads according to my needs but not going overboard in terms of price. I am currently using Dotty about Paper‘s desk stationery particularly Pinking Out Loud – Desk Planner | £7.50 which has a week starting label on top and columns for work days (Mon-Fri) as well as separate sections for Notes, Don’t forget and Weekend. The best part is its a planning pad and you don’t have to take the whole planner with you if you are going away for a week or two. just take those sheets with you and save your space. I will be going abroad for 3 weeks next month and the planner will be so handy as I will only be taking 3-4 sheets of this planning pad.
I am also loving Sweet Sherbet Dreams – A5 Exercise Books – Pack of 2 | £6 as well as Pinking Out Loud – A5 Exercise Books – Pack of 2 | £6 for my days out at events where I might want to note down important information. These are perfect size to keep in my handbag and are slim enough to not weigh down your handbag. The notebooks are lined and the front card covers have nice print in pastel pink and blue.
Also loving the listpads and notepads which come in a set of 2 or 3. The 2-pack ones cost only £6 and 3-pack sets cost only £10 which are such great value sets. I have got a selection of Earn your stripes, Sweet Sherbet Dreams & Got to Dash pads and they are so handy while making lists for grocery, shopping or other To-do’s . The Got to Dash ones are black & white and has brush strokes/dash pattern which means they are unisex and my husband can take that list out in case he wants to.
These pretty notebooks & pads make great props for photos too (in case you’re a blogger;)). I am also eyeing on their Thank you Card writing sets as well as Gold glitter journal which I think would be such a luxe addition to my collection!
Until next time
