Thomas Allen & Son sent me my favourites from the Pipsticks X Workman Publishing collab in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine and from the heart.
“SUMMER IS ALMOST OVER WHICH MEANS SOON U GET TO HIDE INSIDE NOT TALKING TO ANYONE WITHOUT FEELING WEIRD ABOUT IT.” — Orlando Soria
I love September for all of the usual reasons, but even more so this year because I’m starting it with a super fun planner that’s going to help me get a grip on all of the things I’ve let slide and crush my goals. The vast majority of which will not require leaving the house. #killingit #pajamasarelife I know, now you’re over there all TELL ME MORE and as luck would have it, I’m over here (in my pj’s) all OKAY I WILL.
The This Changes Everything 2019 Planner (spanning August 2018 to December 2019) is part of the new Pipsticks X Workman Publishing gift line, which includes a notekeeper and a sticker book in three different themes. My set is “for the Dreamer” — colourful and inspirational, perfect for a creative spirit like yours truly.
There’s also “for the Daring” — fun and bright, with energetic designs, perfect for the list-keeper. (Check out the planner, notekeeper and sticker book.) And lastly, “for the Driven” — a more pastel colour theme and super motivational, perfect for the goal-tracker (planner, notekeeper and sticker book).
Longtime try small things readers (HI MOM) might remember Pipsticks from this post and this one. What started out as a monthly sticker subscription club has now expanded to include a bricks-and-mortar shop and now, this new line.
The Big Ideas Inside notekeeper (with 100+ stickers!) is a major upgrade to the random sticky notes and backs of envelopes that I am forever writing lists and ideas on and subsequently losing. (I swear they actually DO get up and walk away.) The spine is very flexible so the notebook stays open while you’re writing in it instead of closing on top of your hand, which I think we can all agree is très annoying.
Its mate, the Dreaming in Color sticker book, has more than 800 stickers (cute things like to-go cups, cassette tapes, balloon animals and tacos) and six postcards. I want to start sending cards more regularly so I’ve promised myself I’m going to sit down once a week and write at least two. (Snail Mail Sundays coming soon to a planner near you!)
I’m super picky about my planners but PRAISE BE I think I’ve finally found one that ticks all the boxes. Some of my favourite features:
- The sturdy, laminated and colour-coded tabs for each section including holidays, goals, and all the months.
- The “currently” page at the beginning of each month where you write what you’re currently making, watching, reading, listening, eating, planning, etc. I do blog posts like these every now and again and they’re one of my faves.
- The “yay” circles on each day that you can fill in with a sticker to track of your goals. I’m using mine to track my spin classes.
- SIX PAGES OF STICKERS!!
- The mylar pocket at the front with a zip lock for keeping receipts, stamps, your lucky rabbit’s foot (JUST KIDDING THOSE ARE GROSS) etc.
