LIFESTYLE | Blog & YouTube Planner 2018

Monday, January 08, 2018

For the past few years, I've been trying to find the perfect planner. I've recently been using a Kikki K planner and I like it but it's still not exactly what I want. Especially when it comes to blog and youtube planning. 

I want something with a monthly view between each of the months. Rather than at the very front of the diary, space to plan and individual pages per day or week or there is plenty of other spaces in the planner.

TK Maxx is a mecca of all things paper for me, they tend to have a lot of American brands which are much further advanced in all things planner than us in the UK.

I found this leaf print planner for under £10 and when I flicked through it I thought it could be what I wanted from a planner.

There are two main sections. The Diary and the Notes. The notes section is pretty generous and has a mix of paper types. It isn't just plain paper, there is a mix of dotted, squared, lists and boxes. The pictures below might make is a little bit clearer.

I love the Bullet Journal style banners and flags throughout this diary. It also has some items you'd traditionally find in a diary such as the Year planner, there is also a 2019 year planner at the back of the diary section. I don't always use these sections but I do like the idea of them.

When I opened the January pages, I was quite excited as this is the sort of layout I've been looking for. I've already started using it before I took some pictures as I was eager to get started.

I also like the week to view and a blank page. Each week has a different type of paper on the "blank page" For January I've tried to use them all to plan out my month but I'm sure this will change each month.

I'm using the square paper for Blog and Vlog planning. The pens I use are erasable so I can make changes as I go along without it getting too messy or needing to use correction fluid.

The boxes page has been a nice way of me displaying my yearly goals, I'm not sure this page will always be used like this or even used at all but it's a cute page and has come in handy for January.

This paper is quite a decent weight, the colours do show through as a shadow but they haven't bled through which is always a bonus.

I'm going to use the dotted page as a bit of a checklist but as I've never used this system before I'm not sure I like it now I've started it. All I can do is try and it won't be the end of the world if this is he only month I try it.

Because there is a clear cut off at the end of each month where there is space they have included boxes to fill the space, I'm also not keen on the giant squared paper but it's not the end of the world.

Most months follow the above format but February, June and October have the list format rather than the calendar design. I would prefer the calendar boxes but again I can cope with it and I will use it.

I've only flicked through it and I did notice this top 50 list page which is cute, I might use this as my Tom Cruise List but I might need more than 50 spaces. (do you all know what my Tom Cruise List is?)

I'm only a few days in using this but I'm really happy with it. I like the look and layout of it and there is so much note paper I can use that to plan posts.

Most Diaries I've had have things like dialling codes, conversions etc at the beginning. This has them at the back of the Diary section. I can't say I've ever used them but I like that they have them at the back rather than having to wade through 5 or 6 pages to get into the diary itself.

This diary also includes pages to note down websites and address pages as well as some lined paper before the notes section.

As mentioned above the notes section is a heaty section and is a mix of the square, dotted, giant squares and cute boxes.
