Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday! With a new year upon us, now is a great time to set new goals and changes for every aspect of life. Personally, I love to plan and make lists – although I still find the execution of my ideas to be more difficult! This year I decided to enlist the help of an agenda after years of forgoing one.
When looking for a planner, I had a few specific criteria that had to be met. First, I ideally wanted a daily planner as I like to lay out lists and need ample room to do so. Next, which was probably the most difficult criteria I had, I needed enough time to plan my weekends (#studentproblems!) I also wanted monthly spreads for a general overview with room to write within the squares. Finally, I like extra details in planners, such as the inclusion of a section for dinner/budgeting notes. My research resulted in me falling in love with the Day Designer Flagship Collection.
I’d been eyeing the Day Designer for quite a while now, but was hesitant about the cost ($59 USD). Since I knew I’d be in Canada for the first two weeks of January, I stubbornly struggled to find international shipping. After researching a few online retailers, the cheapest option to ship to Toronto was Belle & Blush. This specific shop also carries 2 exclusive cover designs (including one mini) in pink! The other flagship designs include black stripe, gold stripe and a floral pattern.
Below you can see I went with the full-size edition in the Black Spotty print. It is a hefty little thing, at 9″ x 9.75″ and 2 lbs. It came in a lovely green protective (albeit slightly dented) box.
