I love buying new stationery and with a New Year in sight I couldn’t resist trying out a new planner. Unique Planners by Pirongs, are a family-run British business, who produce gorgeous, hard back customisable life planners.
Life Planners are huge in the US and are now pretty popular in the UK too. Unique Planners are completely customisable, you can choose your covers, diary layouts, add photos and text and choose around 25 pages at the back to add in – simply pick from the list of available ones including gift lists, birthday logs, personal goals, holiday wishlists, music to remember, films to watch, soduko…the list goes on! You can even customise it down to the ribbon, binding, sparkly elastic and pen holder. I was given a code to try it out for myself and really love the result.
I admit it took me two attempts to make my Planner online. The first time I didn’t really understand what I was doing but the second time I figured it out!
Although I adore my iPhone and MacBook Air there’s just no substitute for pen and paper. I love making lists and a Planner just helps me keep everything in one place. I use them for blogging, family life, appointments and even a bit meal planning.
You can pretty much customise every aspect of your Life Planner. I chose the size I wanted (a handbag perfect A5), the cover design, the start date, then skipped to the end of the year calendar to choose which pages I wanted to add. I knew I’d be using mine for blogging so had a good look through the blog specific pages, selecting the ones most useful for me.
I added some of the post planning templates, monthly blogging goals, monthly statistics and expenses.
I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of customisation I could do – I even chose the colour of the binding and ribbons. I couldn’t wait to open it when it arrived and loved the fact it came with stickers and month tabs. I’m looking forward to sitting down and getting it ready for January.
There are lots of options and you can tailor your Planner to your interests. Unique Planners also sell lots of other lovely products from calendars to Wedding Planners and Notebooks.
I hope you enjoyed the look of my Life Planner. If you are intersted in ordering one for yourself then I have a code* for you to use, which is GINGERBREAD15. *This code gives you a 15% discount on a planner and expires at the end of 2016.
