Don't get me wrong, I love coming up with personal goals to reach and having things to keep me busy, but I thought that once the wedding was over I would have more free time, and in ways I do. I am an extremely organized person, which is a blessing in my eyes, but sometimes I get frustrated with myself because I want everything to be perfect and I feel as if i'm not getting as much done as I should be at the end of each day. I've reached a point were I just want a fresh start...
Day Designer for Blue Sky Planners C/O
What perfect timing! Over the weekend, these beauties greeted me at the front door and I couldn't have been more excited. Like I said, I'm an organized (very type A) person and a geek when it comes to planners. Like seriously, I don't feel having one planner is enough.
I've always admired Whitney English and her Day Designer planners, and had heard that she was doing a collaboration with Blue Sky, a planner company known for its fun designs, functional calendars and it's overall simplicity. I had never owned anything from Blue Sky so I was ready to check out The Day Designer for Blue Sky and see what I thought.
First things first. I love the crisp pops of colors used, and the gold touches on each planner. The look is vibrant but not overwhelming; preppy and very fun. Day Designer for Blue Sky is available in solid colors as well as some of my favorite designs including stripes, floral prints, and geometric patterns.
Another thing I really like is the fact that they come in different sizes. Want one that can fit in your handbag? They've got it. How about one that is large enough to use for both work and your personal life? They've got that too. Not only that, but they are designed to be used from July 2015 to June 2016...just the right amount of time for individuals like me who can't seem to go a full year without wanting something new.
But the thing I like most about these planners is that they are well priced; ranging from $5.99 to $19.99! For a limited time only, The Day Designer for Blue Sky planners are available at Target stores nationwide and just launched yesterday. If you don't have a Target near you, or if they happen to be sold out by the time you go to pick one up, head over to Blue Sky's website and purchase one there.
What kind of planners and brands do you enjoy most? Is there a particular layout/style (weekly, daily, hourly) that seems most helpful to use? Or what kind of things do you like included in your planner? For me, I like having a notes section but I'd love to hear your thoughts and personal favorites too!
