Why I Love Planning.

As I had written about rather extensively  before, I love to plan. I love having a planner, personalising it, logging details, debilitating over colours, sticking in Washi tape... But the question 'why' was never really answered. As you can see, I've had quite a few planners throughout the year. Personally, this year has seen me taking … Continue reading Why I Love Planning.

15 Reasons You should Have A Planner.

Over the course of writing for this blog, you can probably see that I am an advocate for planners, as well as organisation and planning. But instead of posting a photo-centric post for today, I wanted to post a logical post about the benefits of a planner. They don't crash.  What bothered me most about … Continue reading 15 Reasons You should Have A Planner.

The problem with my Bullet Journal.

Good morning! I've been looking for a planner recently; not liking the Filofax personal or A5 size, I bought this notebook from Paperchase, promptly adding in a date a page. So far, so good. But I became very annoyed at how messy it became. Yes, this Journal is vaguely 'artsy'-if that is even a word-but … Continue reading The problem with my Bullet Journal.

Inside my bullet journal.

  As somebody with Asperger's syndrome, organisation is very important to me; I have to plan my days, know what everyone else is doing. Added to this various things: column and homework deadlines; a vague revision schedule; interviews; blog posts to write and more. I was in need of a planner. My planner's have variously … Continue reading Inside my bullet journal.

Personalised Toad Diaries: Review. 

For a little while now, I've been looking for a new planner; the A5 organised I bought from Paperchase was just way too big and cumbersome. The bullet journal (a notebook also from Paperchase) became too messy for me to bare. Toad Diaries have been round on the blogosphere for a while now; so I … Continue reading Personalised Toad Diaries: Review. 

Staying organised: a how-to guide of tips.

Although nearly always a semi-rhetorical question, a lot of people ask me "how are you so organised?" I use my planner extensively, and it allows me to keep control of many things-being a blogger, student, columnist, as well as progressing on in further education. So, for this post, I want to share a few tips … Continue reading Staying organised: a how-to guide of tips.

My planner Wishlist.

I am very excited to be getting a new planner: you'll be able too see my reasons as for the switch soon, as I'll be posting about it soon. (Long story short, I needed an upgrade, as everything was becoming too crammed into my personal sized planner.) I love to have everything laid out visually … Continue reading My planner Wishlist.

Washi tape

For today's post, I wanted to write an ode to something I love; washi tape. WASHI TAPE! (Yes, really. Please excuse how odd this post is.) Washi tape makes my planner pretty; I could sit for hours, just decorating it, cutting it up in bits, etc. And it makes me very happy to see a … Continue reading Washi tape

Why I’m Changing To A Paperchase Organiser From A Filofax.

Don't get me wrong; my Filofax has been my lifeline for a long time now, in organising every role I have to inhibit-the student, the columnist, the blogger, the wannabe journalist. And by the title of this post, I wish not to sound disparaging towards Filofax; it really has been a good brand to me … Continue reading Why I’m Changing To A Paperchase Organiser From A Filofax.

Goodbye Filofax! (A love letter of sorts….) 

My Filofax and I have been the best of friends for a long time now; ever since I moved in 2012, it was from the next year that it truly helped with my organisation. The student, the burgeoning writer, the blogger-it helped me inhabit all of these rules, and embrace them fully. In my final … Continue reading Goodbye Filofax! (A love letter of sorts….) 

My Filofax Deconstructed.

I finally made the choice to upgrade my Filofax-and after so much time! For today's post, I wanted to post one final set-up; after all, as I post daily, Imneed as much content as I can get! I've been using my personal size organiser-the breast cancer charity diary released a few years ago-with a single … Continue reading My Filofax Deconstructed.

A look inside my Filofax.

  As I've done previously, I've shared a few posts, relating to my Filofax, how I plan, and what is inside. As I write this, it's the last day of February, and my planner has already become well and truly stuffed. About a week ago, there was also a Twitter chat, which deviated towards Filofaxes, … Continue reading A look inside my Filofax.

Filofax love from around the web! 

Filofaxes are cool. I think that if you read this blog regularly, or are part of the planner world, you'll probably already know this. But enough about my planner! (Well, directly anyway...) I wanted to put together a post about 'Filofax love'-a collective from around the internet. And in doing that, I'll illustrate my post … Continue reading Filofax love from around the web!
