Staying Ahead with Good Planning

13 Sep

Hi folks,

I’ve been in planning & organising over drive lately. What with the start of the new academic year & Seth going back to Pre-School & everything that’s coming up with regard to events & celebrations… I’ve been furiously making lists etc…

I just couldn’t get by without my Personal Planner Wall Planner. It’s so perfect for busy family life when you’re juggling school events, work, appointments, etc…

This is the ultimate Wall Planner for a busy family. You get a week per pages & you can add family members & colour co-ordinate everyone. You can even add a photograph at the top of each column.

I absolutely adore stickers too… With your purchase, you get a free sheet of stickers, but you can also purchase more stickers from their online shop.

With the wall planner you can also add areas at the bottom for things such as: Menu/Meals, To Do List, Pre-School etc… it’s just a great area to add additional notes & memo’s. For us, it’s perfect having our planner to consult before booking anything in as you can see so quickly & easily what everyone is up too.

I’m a big fan of technology & I use my electric devices daily along with a virtual assistant in our home in pretty much every room lol, but when it comes to organising… paper & pen is always better. Personal Planner as a company make it all so very user friendly. If you create an account you can add all of you special dates, such as birthdays etc… they will automatically be uploaded into any planner you create with the click of a button. It saves so much time!

I’ve also got the Mini Planner too for my handbag. It’s literally perfect for keeping in your handbag when you’re out & about.

Just like the Wall Planner, you can colour co-ordinate everything & you can add stickers etc…

You can even add little fun areas like a little colouring image at the bottom of each page. I just love colouring in, but having 2 little ones to run around after – I never have time to finish anything. So these little images are perfect for when I get a spare 5 minutes. Yes… I am that sad lol. I just find colouring so relaxing with a cup of tea.

I love that the planners all come with an elastic to keep it closed whilst in your bag. There’s nothing worse than your organiser opening & getting all of its pages ruffled up. In each planner you’ll also find a plastic wallet to keep any important items such as receipts etc… as with the wall planner – you’ll also get your sheet of stickers. And… a removable ruler! Perfect to use as a page marker. I just adore everything about these stunning planners.

So… I have some exciting news!!! Personal Planner have given me a gift card worth £39.90 & valid until March 2020. I will be giving this gift card away to one of my lucky followers over on Instagram! Head on over to my Instagram Page now, to find out how to enter! I’m just so excited to pass on some Personal Planner sparkle to one of you.

Thank you as always for reading & I hope I’ve inspired you to get organised. In fact… why not treat your nearest & dearest this Christmas to the gift of being organised. You could gift them a planner or a personal planner gift card!

Love & huggles,

Planning the Perfect Play Date

30 Nov

Hi folks,

Life is so hectic & fast paced these days… especially when you’re a parent. Planning your life around classes, play groups, work, housework, socialising etc… yikes… how do you fit it all in!?

I like to arrange regular playdates for Seth with all of his little best friends. Plus, it gives me some much needed time to have a catch up & have a cuppa with my fellow Mummy’s. The easiest way for us to arrange our playdates is with the use of Doodle. Doodle is so user friendly! Also, when scheduling an event – your invitees don’t even need to have the app as you can invite them via Text Message, Email, Whatsapp & Facebook Messenger. I usually opt for Facebook Messenger as we’re all on that social media platform.

Getting started is super easy… the app is free to download & very user friendly.

When creating the event you have free reign to choose time, date, location etc… the great thing about this scheduling app is that you can send your invitees multiple dates. That’s the main thing that I love about this app. When planning an event – you always need a few options. Like I said earlier… Life is super busy these days.

Once you have created your event/time poll you will be able to invite people. You do this by clicking the icon in the top right corner that looks like a little person.

You can also add messages & start discussions with one another via the speech bubble icon also in the top right corner. It just keeps all correspondence in the one area & it also means that no one is left out of the conversation.

Each time someone responds & participates in your time poll/invitation you will receive an alert via the app & an email notification.

Once everyone has responded – you should have a clear idea which date is most suitable.

Every busy parent needs this app. Myself & my husband have been using this app for arranging Christmas nights out too – it just cuts out all of the needless text messages. It’s quick, easy & precise! Like your very own personal assistant that lives inside your smart phone!

Happy Scheduling!

Love & Huggles,

Getting Organised with my Personal Planner

19 Sep

Hi folks,

Well we all know how hectic life can be! Whether you’re studying, working or just trying to juggle life… things can become rather chaotic if you’re not properly organised. 

With the hubster teaching in a University & me myself coming from an Education background & obviously being a Mammy to a very sociable little boy, we tend to work on an academic calendar when planning events, vacations etc… My Personal Planner is just perfect for keeping everyone organised & knowing exactly where we all need to be! 


This year I decided to go for the square Planner as I thought it would fit into my handbag perfect. You’ll also notice that I have the matching ‘Blogging Book’. My blogging book is my trusty notebook. I write all of my ideas for blog posts when I’m on the move but find myself inspired. I also keep all of my top secret info on what’s coming next 🙂 along with contacts & other bits & bobs. Having the perfect notebook to hand is simply essential! 

So… what is so perfect about the Personal Planner? Well, you literally design it yourself from head to toe. You choose the layout, colour, design etc… I love that it has a wrap around elastic to keep it closed. I mean there’s nothing worse than everything from your handbag disappearing into your notebook & then all of the pages becoming ripped & crumpled. You can even choose the colour of the elastic. These books & planners are lovely & slimline too, so they’re not too bulky. There’s nothing worse than a heavy, bulky planner weighing down you’re fave handbag! The books & planners come with a clear hard plastic front & back cover too so they’ll stay looking nice & crease free.


Inside your planner you get a ruler which you can use as a marker. And yes… you get to choose the colour!!! You will also be given a handy clear pocket to keep essential papers in, receipts & stickers! Oh & you get a sheet of stickers too!!! I mean who does not love a sticker!? 

Everything about the inside of the planner is designed by you. You can choose your colours, layout, whether you want a section for notes or to do list. You can even have an area for your weekly menu! And if you notice in the collage picture – I have an overview of 2018 in the back – this is essential for planning those all important weekends away & vacations! 

If you create a profile/account on personal Planner you can upload & add your all important dates; Birthdays… Anniversarys etc… so each year you don’t have to sit & write them in. You just hit a button & hey pesto – they’ll be automatically added to your planner for you!!! I mean how amazing is that!? Just think of all the time you will save! 

So whether you’re looking for the perfect planner to take to school, college, university, work or to simply manage your whole entire life & family… this is most deffinitely the planner for you! 

You can find Personal Planner on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram or simply head to their Website

Thanks so much as always for reading! I hope you’ve enjoyed this review. What are you waiting for!? Go order that planner! Oh… I almost forgot… you can also buy gift cards! Perfect as Christmas is just around the corner… 🙂 

Love & Huggles,
