I've been using an Erin Condren Life Planner to plan out my weeks for over a year now - I love the whole process of decoratively planning out my week with sticker kits (aka stickerating!). I really appreciate the creative outlet it gives me whilst still being something that allows me to be productive. I love spending time on a Sunday planning out my week and then adding to my to do list for the next day every evening.
I'm obsessed with watching planner videos on YT but there's no way I'd be able to start a YT channel (I struggle sometimes to keep with the ol' blog!), I've been wanting to share my planner on my blog but I never really knew how to incorporate it in my content - but then I saw this post from Jaye and thought it was such a fun idea!
So, here's my planner flip through for January 2017:
Last year I never used the notes pages at the beginning of each month - it was such a waste, but I could never figure out what I wanted to use it for. I recently found these notes page kits from Pretty on Paper Co and I love it! I love how the space is filled and it looks used, it isn't just wasted space at the beginning of each month. My favourite part is the 'currently' section - I've started to use it as inspiration for my Currently posts!
I'm also rubbish at using the month at a glance pages - I only ever decorate it with these wacky holiday stickers from Sweet Kawaii Design - they're so fun to look on each day! But seriously I need to get better at using these pages, if you've any ideas please let me know in the comments!
I loved this New Years Eve Kiit from Harriet Wright Designs - this navy and gold combination is my favourite, a lot of kits I saw were pink/gold and I'm much more of a blue girl than a pink one! I love the sparkles too - so cute!
This New Year, New You kit from Harriet Wright Designs was perfect for the second week of the month - these colours are my favourites; grey, navy and copper! This week was a pretty work heavy week - I have to say that I love the stickers I use to denote which section I work in each day - they're so fun! The little labcoats from it's planning time are my absolute fave.
We had snow in the UK in the middle of the month so this HWD Winter Wonderland kit was perfect! I loved all the animals in this kit - the full boxes were so cute, I really like how putting the morning and night full boxes together! I've started using the habit tracker to track my instagram posts, I'm trying to post to insta every day this year and the simple task of ticking it off every day is seriously helping me to remember to post!
The last week in January I used the Winter Chill kit from Harriet Wright Designs (again! I unintentionally used all HWD kits this month - I just love her kits!) - I love the bright blue, and the sparkles! I also really love the cute animals in this kit - I'm not usually the biggest fan of deco in my weekly spreads but these were too cute - look how cute that reindeer is!
I loved how my January spreads still had the ice-y blue colour running through them all - despite the fact I went for the neutral ECLP this year I still love keeping to the monthly colour scheme - I like how uniform the weeks look throughout the month.
And there it is, my month of January via my planner!
