How I Keep My Blog Organised With My Personal Planner + GIVEAWAY!

Today's post I'm teaming up with Personal Planner and getting involved in their August campaign. This post is going to be all about Personal Planner and what they offer on their site and what's so great about them. Plus there will be information about my giveaway where you can win a gift card to design your own Personal Planner, Notebook or Wall Planner!

I first got to work with PP earlier this year when I was kindly gifted a gift card to make my own planner. I decided on the Wide Personal Planner RRP £22.90*, I'm a huge fan of trying to keep everything organised and obviously, a planner is a blogger's best friend, I am going to be doing a blog post all about blog organisation really soon. I like to keep notes on what blog posts I'm posting when, I also like to write down when I've hit a milestone on my Twitter or Instagram because even though numbers aren't everything, it's nice to look back on and see how my blog has grown in such a short space of time (especially if I'm having a low kind of day and hating on my blog and photos etc). I also like to write down when I've posted a sponsored post or sent an invoice just so I know where I stand. Plus I write general things in like doctors appointments, days out planned and things like that.

I tend to use stickers to add a little cute, creative touch to my planner and also use washi tape and so on which I pick up either from Poundworld or B&M, plus Personal Planner also have accessories available on their site and other accessories too, including pens, leather bounds and so on. 

I really like how you can design your planner to your taste, you can add a photo of something which means a lot to you on the front cover or just use one of their lovely templates (like what I did partly because I wanted to use my planner as a blog prop - I'm not going to lie lol). Inside you can choose how you want your layout and if you'd like to add in a timetable and/or daily details like - work, workout, weather. You also can choose what you want in the back pages - for instance I have some colouring pages, ruled pages and Sudoku (which I still don't know how to play!). Every planner also comes with a plastic sleeve (which is where I keep my cute stickers), a ruler and an elastic closure and you can choose the colours too.

I was recently contacted by Personal Planner again about a month or so ago to ask if I was still wanting to take part in their campaign and I obviously said yes. I was kindly given another gift card to create another planner or a notebook. I decided on an A5 notebook RRP £14.90* and again I chose a cute cactus template rather than adding one of my own photos, I'm literally obsessed with the cute print, you may have seen it creep into a few of my blog photos lately. I'm currently using the notebook as my a place to write blog post ideas, brands I would love to work with in the future and also my monthly stats and it's also just a place to brain dump a little too. Again the notebook comes along with a plastic sleeve, ruler and elastic closure and because I still had some leftover money on the gift card I also picked up some fab accessories including 2 packs of the Everyday Stickers RRP £2.95* per pack which I already know I love. As well as the stickers I picked up 2 FriXon Rollerball Pens RRP £3.45* one in Black and one is Blue, these have been a complete lifesaver for me because they are erasable so are really handy because I am the queen on mistakes. It also stops me from wasting paper and throwing paper in the bin too.
