Personal Planner Giveaway

I've mentioned that I recently attended Brit Mums Live with several hundred other bloggers.
I stuck my iPad in my purse, thinking that I would use it to take notes.
(I'm a blogger now, I have to pretend like I know how to use the latest technology.)

 But when we sat down for the opening session,
there was a lovely spiral notebook in front of me with a Uniball pen!

Forget the iPad, I'd much rather make notes by hand.
Plus, have you ever tried to doodle on an iPad note page?  Not fun.

The notebook with the wonderful ruled pages was a gift from Personal Planner.
And attached to the notebook was a gift certificate for a personalized planner.
I couldn't wait to get home and order it.

Again, I realize that I should probably be using my phone or computer as my planner, but I still keep my calendar/diary manually.  I'm a sucker for a pretty spiral book and a brightly colored gel pen.

As soon as I got home, I went online and ordered myself a blog planner
and a personal travel calendar.

Everything was customizable from the cover, to the colors, start date,
planner pages and much more.  
There are four sizes to chose from and I even used my own photos as the cover art.

Easy ordering, quick confirmation email and a week later
my planners arrived.

I couldn't be happier with them, so I emailed Personal Planner 
and asked if they would be nice enough to sponsor a giveaway.
They quickly responded that they would be happy to share the love.

So here is your chance to win your very own personal planner.  
And don't worry, they ship all over so this is open internationally.
(See official rules.)

Good luck and happy planning!!!

  1. I have been using a planner everyday since I was twelve. TWELVE! If I don't write a list everyday the world will explode (not really, but it feels like that). I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this one :)

    I have post-it notes all over my apartment and have half-scribbled in notebooks. Definitely need one organized compact spot for you know, my super busy Parisian life! ; ) Looking forward to seeing who wins and good luck Sara Louise, may the best gal win! : P

  3. I wouldn't be without my paper planner - nothing is quite as satisfying as putting pen to paper and getting organised!

  4. I'm with you on a paper notebook/planner! Despite living the majority of my life in front of a computer screen I still need my calendar to be written on paper... There's just something quite "official" about it.

  5. Wow! Thanks for the great opportunity to win one- they look so cute! Like you, I'm a sucker for a good personal planner. I like my iPhone as much as the next girl but nothing beats hitting a brightly colored pen to the paper.

  6. These are so cute! I would love one, but I never win anything :)

  7. I love paper and pen and personal planner. I still use one too. I have an I phone and I keep thinking I'll put everything on it, but every year I shop for just the right calendar to use for the year!

    You are missing July 4th dearie! I love it. I'm sitting in bed, in my little room in the basement listening to the bangs and booms. They are LOUD in the country.

  8. I'm with you. I have my own favorite pen to write with to and noone else in the house is allowed to touch the stash of pens in my desk drawer! I keep trying to use my iphone and mac calendar...still struggling. What is it about having that beautiful planner in your hands and feeling the ink as it glides over the pages? I love it!


Thanks for commenting. I love to hear from you!
