Today I’m sharing what I bought from Erin Condren, what planner I’ll be using for the next year and some extra goodies. I’ve been using an Erin Condren life planner for around 5 or 6 years and I love and swear by them. Previously, I went for the traditional plastic, interchangeable covers but this year I decided to splurge on the faux leather, permanent cover. Even though the 2018 life planners were released around June or July, I actually waited to purchase my planner until Black Friday so I could get it, and everything else I decided to purchase, at a discount.
First, let’s start with my life planner! It’s a 12-month coil bound planner and, as I previously said, the cover is made of really nice, gray faux leather that I had it monogrammed with my initials in gold to match the coil.
This year, Erin Condren redesigned the life planner pages and upgraded the paper to a thicker, higher quality paper. I’ll definitely need to adjust my planning style to really utilize all the new features in this year’s life planner but I feel like I’m really going to enjoy it! Below are some pictures of the inside of the life planner. I’ve only included pics of one month but all the months look the same except with different color schemes.
Each life planner also comes with stickers to make planning more fun and beautiful! This year, some of the stickers are foiled and I love how reflective and colorful they are since I went for the neutral planning pages.
Each planner also comes with a Perpetual Planner and a Plan for it Pouch, which includes a few extra goodies that Erin Condren sells on their website. The Perpetual Planner is great for keeping track of dates and celebrations that happen annually. To be honest, I don’t really use the perpetual planner because a new one comes with each new life planner I buy and I found it a waste of time to transfer all those dates into a new perpetual planner when I can just write them in my life planner.
In addition to my life planner, I decided to purchase the Shine On Bundle, which includes some amazing metallic products paired together at a discounted price. I’m not sure how I’m going to use some of these products yet but I’m excited to see how everything comes together as 2018 progresses.
As 2018 gets closer, the more excited I get to start using my new life planner! I’m already collecting ideas and prepping my posts for next month. There might even be a theme change/ rebrand coming to my blog next year since my personal style has changed dramatically since I set up this blog a couple years ago.
January 2017 is when I actually started taking blogging seriously and it’s changed my life! I can’t believe I’ve consistently blogged for an entire year. I love having a space to share my thoughts, experiences, and pictures and I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store!
Until next time,
