Kay's Personal Planner!!

I've never won anything.  Ever.  Except a book about cross-stitch in Primary School which technically my Mum won from the raffle but I claimed as my own because I'm possessive like that (forget the fact my Mum cross-stitched and I didn't know how to)...  You can imagine how thrilled I was when I found out I had won a customised Personal Planner from Jharna (Baking Myself Happy).  Not only had I legitimately won something on my own accord but it was something that I was super duper crazy ridiculously excited about.

If you've been reading my blog for long enough you'll know I'm a crazy planner (especially overseas trips but also weekly meal plans, to-do lists every day) and avid colour-coder (each subject in highschool had its associated colour so I had an array of pens and highlighters for each subject).  You can imagine my excitement when I was able to personalise most aspects of my very own planner.  From selecting the planner size (I went with A5 landscape), to the front and back covers, to the layout of the days, whether you want weather icons or smiley icons, the colour of certain lines, and even adding special events on certain days.

Every planner comes with a plastic front and back cover

You can upload your own picture for the front and back covers.  I took this photo during Vivid Sydney last year

I chose the pink banner and yellow stripes.  The ruler is also pink and you can move it each week

You can input special events

Lined paper at the back
Back cover

Plastic sleeve you can put anywhere - I decided to put it at the back of my planner.  I also chose the pink elastic

Sudoku for when I get bored!!
To be honest it's kinda fun just to go on the website and play around with the different options.  I ordered my planner on 28th Jan and received it on 8th Feb so it was a super-quick turnaround (much faster than the estimated 3 weeks they quoted me).  A huge thanks to the team at Personal Planner and to Jharna for this amazing prize.


  1. Oh my gawddd I love that.. And I'm not a 'crazy planner'.

  2. I had a look at this website and the OCD in me kicked in... There were way to many options, I got overwhelmed and had to close the browser! Haha

    1. Hahaha I know what you mean! I was overwhelmed at so much choice too so I actually left it for a few days and went back to it. So much easier the second time around :)

  3. I love organisers so would go crazy over this too! Really like the options to customise it to your own liking too.

    1. It was loads of fun! I might give them out as Christmas pressies this year so my friends can customise their own :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment :)
