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.
Hello, my name is Natalie Benton and I’m the blogger behind Gorgeous and Geeky (Click here to view.). I 'met' Lydia from Mademoiselle Women in June on Twitter, and we quickly decided on writing a collab post.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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
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.
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….)
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.

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.
