My new favourite thing

Just a wee post today to show you my new favourite thing. Even if you're not naturally well-organised (I'm definitely not) there's nothing better than faking it. I'm in my third year now so it has never been more crucial to stay on top of my workload. It's a year of self-set deadlines and to-do lists, so when I saw Jen had been sent one of these amazing customisable planners from Personal Planner I knew I had to get in on it.


Yep, that is my own photography on the cover. The great thing is about this is that they don't need to start in January or September, so your fresh start can be whenever you want. I saw mine at the start of the year so had it begin from February - not conventional but it suits me so no matter. You can customise the colour scheme, cover and additional pages, as well as getting special dates and birthdays printed in advance. I spent HOURS playing around with the templates, and I've not let it out of my sight since! All the diaries I have ever had in the past have ended up really tatty and scribbled on but this is just so perfect I am determined to keep it immaculate! xox

  1. Love this! I splashed out on a £10.50 diary (which is a lot for me) in WH Smith at the start of the year. I hate it and wish I saw this sooner! Maybe 2013 hmm.. xx

  16. I love things like this, it reminds me of my school planner in a way. As much as I loathed school, it was perfect for keeping everything in one place. Great idea and cute cover xxx

  17. This is beautiful! I've never used a diary before but I've strangely been on the hunt in Paperchase for a lovely one like this. I love the fact it's your own photography, it makes it so much more personal! xxx

  19. If I didn't love my current diary (be it not quite as cute as this one) I would jump online and get one of them straight away.

    2013 is looking up.
