Giveaway!!! A Personalised Planner from personal-planner.co.uk

Hello everyone! Today I have something exciting for you! A giveaway kindly sponsored by Personal-planner.co.uk of one of their personalised planners! Following some email enquiries about their planners, they offered me a one to review and another to give away to one of my lovely readers! All the prize details and the Rafflecopter can be found at the end of the post, but in case you'd like to know a little more about the product first, here are my impressions after using it for about a week! 

Since I've been blogging seriously, I've tried so many ways to stay organised. Wall charts. notebooks, you name it. I'm a list kind of gal. I tried using a diary too, but it just didn't have the layout I wanted (I'm also an OCD kind of gal). I'd looked at a few planners, but had been put off by overseas shipping costs (and the potential wait) so was looking for something closer to home.

Lurid paisley was my choice - more subtle options are available ;)

Here's where I introduce my Personal Planner, as I got to design the interior weekly layout (and colour scheme) from a variety of options. I also got to choose the size and the cover (there are plenty of templates or you can upload your own) and had it printed with my blog name. There were also options for the rest of the planner and I chose a ton of notepaper and monthly overviews. It also came with an interior plastic wallet (which I keep my nail templates in for doodling on the go) as well as a colour coordinated elastic closure and ruler/bookmark (you also get to choose the colours for those). Building the planner via their website was super simple, despite all the options involved.

My "week to view" set up

The overview pages

This has really changed the way I go about planning my blog content and nail designs. I have a section each day for what needs to be posted and the other half for what I need to paint/edit/write. I also have the small sections at the bottom of each week for reminders. The monthly overviews let me see exactly how stressed I am going to be and when, while the "Notes" section is covered in scribbles, doodles and other nonsense, without taking up agenda space! If that works for you, great! If not, have it laid out so it floats your boat ;)

I also got to choose which month the planner started on so it will be my wingman until May 2015, plus I've got a book with my name on it and I'm a stationery fan girl so its a win all round :)

The giveaway is for a voucher for one personalised planner of any size from personal-planner.co.uk and is open to UK entrants only (Sorry! But if you know someone in the UK who could receive it and post it on to you that would work too!). The giveaway is open for one week. Entries and terms and conditions via the Rafflecopter below! :)
