“Together is a Wonderful Place to Be.”

10 Aug

Hi Folks,

We’re trying our hardest to try & make life more normal here in our house. Now that we can see family members… we’re making plans & trying to plan days out for the kids, since we’ve had to cancel our Summer getaway. Things like seaside days out, strawberry picking, picnics etc…

Planning is always so much more fun when you have pretty pens & a Personal Planner or Family Wall Planner. Every year I have a Family Wall Planner made for us from Personal Planner. I love them soooooo much! They really are the best planners around.

With each Personal Planner or Wall Chart – you will get a sheet of stickers. Great for high lighting special arrangements. Another great feature is that you can upload all of your important dates, birthdays & anniversary’s. So each year you don’t have to go through writing in all of the dates… with one click everything uploads. It’s utterly perfect – I hate the task of the laborious date writing. So this handy little feature scraps all of that.

The family wall planner has enough room for each individual family member. They get their own colour coordinated section & photograph. Perfect for logging school dates, play dates & trips to the vet… of course our Chihuahua Coco has her own section on the family wall planner.

The most exciting & fun aspect of these lovely planners is that you literally design it all yourself. So it’s a perfect fit for you & your life. Whether you want it to aid with your studies, or if you need it to help with organising your office at home whilst working from home or like me… you want to plan fun family days out… Personal Planner has you covered. And what’s more… shipping is entirely FREE!!!

So… I have some super exciting news!!!! I’ve teamed up with Personal Planner for a phenomenal GIVEAWAY!!! All you have to do is head on over to my Instagram page & FOLLOW ME, LIKE & SHARE. Just look for the Personal Planner giveaway post.

Being Organised is the Way!

2 Sep

Hi folks,

I’ve been on ‘super organising mode’ for the last few weeks. What with the new baby arriving very soon… Seth’s hectic social life… The new academic year starting so we have nursery applications & the hubsters workload getting heavier… Family life just being chaotic… My work load mounting up & then lets not even mention Christmas! Even though it sounds a lot… I do love to be busy. I love how hectic life is around here & I do thrive on making lists, booking stuff & generally getting everything organised so it runs like clock work.

I’m all for technology & I do love my gadgets… I mean I couldn’t be without my iPhone & MacBook, but for me, when getting organised, digital just isn’t it. I like pen & paper. I ‘think’ better on pen & paper. I like lists I can consult. I like a diary I can thumb back through the pages to check dates. A nice neat little diary always used to do the trick for me, but these days, I’m organising myself, The Hubster, Seth, the new Baby when he arrives & even the Dog! Yes… even Coco has appointments & engagements! So I need something substantial… I need a family Bible everyone can consult to see what’s happening & when. That’s where the Personal Planner comes in.

This will be the 3rd year in a row that I’ve been using a Personal Planner to keep everything organised. But as our family is growing… so is our planner! But that’s okay… with Personal Planner you can customise every single aspect… that includes size! This year I have gone for the A4 Planner… just to make sure I have enough room for every single detail.

When I say every detail… you choose your size, front cover, string/fastening colour, ruler colour, page layout, page colour etc… like literally EVERY DETAIL. You also get some handy stickers to use & you also get a plastic wallet. I love a plastic wallet in a planner as they’re super useful for letters, receipts, coupons etc…

These planners are literally amazing. You can add important dates, add a ‘To Do List’ section, Meal Planner section etc… Perfect for just about anyone. I always tend to get the academic calendar, purely as, we run on the academic calendar in this house. I worked in education for such a long time, my husband works in a University & now we have kids… it’s just natural for us. But you can get a normal ‘Jan to Dec’ type of planner if that suits better. I think this size, would be perfect for anyone planning a wedding too. So much room for lot’s of information.

Our A4 Planner (Family Bible) stays in our home office, purely because it’s easier that way for everyone to be able to consult it. But you can get smaller sizes that may be more convenient for on the go. I’ve used the Square Planner & the Wide Planner in the past. Both are excellent. But for family life now… the A4 is the one for us.

You can find Personal Planner on social media… a great way to keep up to date with announcements & promotions… FacebookTwitter , Instagram

So there you have it… that’s how I try to keep a head of everything. Don’t forget, that they also do gift cards – perfect gift idea’s if you’re ever stuck on what to buy someone. Why not give them the gift of being organised. I definitely know a few folk who could benefit from one lol.

As always, I really hope you’ve found this review useful & thanks so much for reading!

Personal Planner

28 Nov


Hi folks

Well, I have another fab Christmas gift idea for you!

What do you buy the most organised person you know? Or, what do you buy the least organised person you know? Or.. if you know someone in between… I have the perfect gift idea! Why not buy them a personal planner? Or better still… head to their website & buy someone a gift card!

The Personal Planner is just that… a fabulously unique personal planner tailored for you… by you! You literally design every single aspect of it. Everything from the colour of the pages to the layout.

I loved creating my own planner. I make notes generally all over my diary & I’m always writing lists of menu’s for the week to keep on track with eating healthy. My current diary just ends up as a massive mess… with writing scrawled all over the place. It looks incoherent – then I have to decipher what I’ve written & in what order! Now, when you have a busy working Mammy life like me… this is not the way to plan your time! So… with my NEW planner… I have my page sectioned up into little, manageable, neat categories! I simply cannot wait for the New Year purely so I can use it! Yes… I am that sad.

Along with my regular weekly breakdown over two pages, I have:

  • To Do This Week, complete with a ticky box (who doesn’t love a ticky box!?)
  • List Of The Week – this list I was going to use for business/PR contacts of who I’m in talks with. Just so to keep it separate from my to do list.
  • Idea Of the Week – This was to jot any buzz words or inspiring things I encounter that I can write about or simply come back to at a later date.
  • This Week’s Dinner – This is my menu area.
  • Notes – well thats pretty self explanatory.


I also opted for the ruler too – it makes a great page mark doesn’t it!?


I’ve tried in the past to have a personal diary & a work diary, but it just never works. I end up lugging around two diaries. Then I update one & not the other & it just gets so confusing! So, this way with my personal planner all organised & categorised – I can have one diary for everything but with keeping things in a precise coherent order!

I opted for the wide diary – simply so I could get as much wordiness in there! But you can choose various shapes & sizes to suit your needs.

I love that it’s slim too. It takes up hardly no room in my bag! Also, another bugbear of mine is when you have book in your bag & it opens so the pages get all bend & dogeared. I end up having to pop a hair bobble around things to keep them closed etc… well that just looks a bit naff doesn’t it!? And not at all professional when you turn up to a meeting with split hairs sprouting off your diary! Well… there’s no need for that with your personal planner as you get to choose the colour of your elastic that is attached & in the perfect place to keep your diary closed & perfect!


You can add sheets of stickers too! Now this is fab for all of you ‘bullet journalers’ out there! ‘Journaler’… I don’t even think thats a word!? Oh well, it is now! I love a good sticker. If you’ve got something important to do – a sticker always makes it pop when you turn the page. If you are into bullet journaling then you can opt for plain pages rather than lined – just for when your sketching etc… Honestly – whatever you want – goes really. You design it. Even the front cover… I opted for a plain & simple cover… but you could add a photograph of your choice… anything!

If you’re wanting to buy this as a gift – but would like to pass the creative gift on so the recipient gets the fun of designing, then you have the option of buying them a PDF version gift card – or an actual physical gift that will arrive via the postman. It really would make a fab Christmas gift. That way – you can either email them the fabulous gift. Or… pop it in their Christmas card!

Now, if you’re wanting to create & design a personal planner to arrive before Christmas, then you really must get your skates on! You need to order before December 4th for guaranteed Christmas Delivery. But, if you’re not sure of anything, then you can head to their website & contact the beautiful personal planner folk via their  customer service contact email address, of via their Facebook Page.

Well… There you have it! Go buy your very own Personal Planner… you really do need it in your life!

Thanks so much for reading as always & I hope I’ve inspired you to get organised!

Love & Huggles,
