Plum Paper Planner Review

As salaam alaykum

Peace be upon you,

It’s a beautiful morning, and I am finally getting this review written,edited, and posted.

It has been a long time coming! Recently I’ve had a lot less energy, I put this down to the return of anaemia, but also I’ve had so much to do preparing for baby as well. Regardless I am so happy to be finally writing this review :).

Stay tuned to the end, for a little gift courtesy of the lovely people at Plum Paper.

The morning my beautiful planner arrived, (after two months of not so patiently waiting for it to arrive), I turned to my husband and apologised.”I’m sorry, I’m in love with this planner, I have to marry it.”

His response?

An unphased “Good for you”.

IMG_7929He’d been the unwilling audience to several speeches and much of excited gushing in the weeksย leading up to it’s arrival. I spent quite a bit of time looking in to different planners, and once I decided to go with a ย plum paper planner, i had a lot of fun browsing through the add ons, and choosing which ones would be of benefit to me and my life style, and help me to take task of my time, and be more productive.

Naturally I took pictures.

 

I like how it’s laid out, they had a few options on their etsy store, but this was my preferred layout.IMG_8205

It’s easy to use, and I can keep track of what I’m doing/ or supposed to be doing. It’s also really fun to see things organised, and play around with decorating each week.

IMG_8266I’ve found the calendar really useful as it helps me plan ahead during the month.ย

At the start of each month there’s a page that allows you to set some goals that you’d like to fulfil that month, as well as things you need to remember and lined paper for notes.

There’s tabbed file dividers that separate each month.

And a double sided wallet for storing papers or stickers, or whatever else you may want to carry about in your planner.

I also chose some “add-ons”, delicious add-ons gallery here.

All in all, I’d say I’m very happy with my purchase. Perhaps in’sha’allah (if Allah wills), I’ll get a new one around the same time next year, so far it’s working out quite well as a tool to keep me organised, and a bit more focused when it comes to achieving things every month.

Busy Busy – oh friends!

The Run up to school, means I’ve got quite a few things on my plate, but I find it helpful to chill out, and write a blog post, just to set those thoughts in order.

I spoke to a couple friends today that I haven’t spoken to in a while, and I honestly miss them. ๐Ÿ™‚ Funny how it always seems easier to see your friends when you’re all back on campus. Even if they go to a completely different educational institution to you. It just goes to show that it is about how you prioritise.

Speaking of friends, a certain friend of mine revealed that he has a business too. It’s interesting that had I not asked, I would never have known. So… I might just become an affiliate, I’ll just do him a favour and post the link here for now. Honestly it’s also a favour to myself, I don’t want to forget once I update my site… though I’m sure he’ll remind me ๐Ÿ™‚

Second another friend of mine reminded me today, that sometimes moving onward and upwards can be an unsettling and scary experience. Sure it’s fun, with all the excitement of new things, and learning stuff, but sometimes its good to be reminded that it is okay to be a bit scared. That’s part of doing something new.

Moving on from talk about friends, and moving on to talk about business… Yay! I’m a bit happy, because I finished my first knitted phone case. Woo. I’ve been knitting for a while, occupied with a scarf, lost all but three knitting needles but honestly, thank God, I’ve done it. I made my first one. Mark this date down in your diary ๐Ÿ˜› I’ve got lots more to make though, but it’s just nice to reach a milestone.

One down, many more to go… hopefully!

To talk about writing, I have an uncle who wrote an extremely interesting short article, and you might just get to have the pleasure of reading it.

Lastly;ย ย I’m writing an essay. It’s about Law (my area of study) Adeola (me) and… Society (those around me, my community). It doesn’t have a title yet, but it has a rough plan. I want to explore what impact my degree can have for me and on society. How I intend to use it, and generally it’s just for me to think about my INTENTION (like i was talking about in that post before ๐Ÿ™‚ ). What I’m aiming to get out of my degree. If it’s any good I might share it with you.

That’s pretty much it, That and packing, and having fun in the kitchen. It doesn’t seem like too much now ๐Ÿ™‚ Man I love blogging!

Alright take care.
