Best planner for blogging - review and how to organise!

It came to my attention that there is a space in the market for the 'perfect blog planner', I've been using the same diary/planner for three years in a row now and I can happily say, it is the best planner you will ever use if you YouTube/Blog, on top of working, social life, school and taking your daily nap (I wish). 

It also came to my attention that there is no detailed reviews of this planner on the internet, including a wide range of photos so that you can see the pages in detail, what else it offers etc. So I thought I would do one myself, as I know what a tricky hunt it can be to find the perfect planner to organise your life!

I can honestly say since purchasing my first one of these planners in 2012 my grades at school generally went up as I got so crazily organised. Even my bedroom was noted down when to be tided, so it was constantly kept organised and clean!
The first few pages in the planner are completely blank, there is about 4-5 of these. What I do so I can get the most use out of them for a whole year is place sticky notes on them. So they can be easily removed and new notes, notices and important reminders can be constantly re-added to these pages. 

For example a little tip to organise your life I always make sure really important things are at the front, as every time I open my planner that is the first place my attention is drawn. By doing this I instantly want to do/finish those tasks. I keep notices for things like, homework, when to wash my hair, do my nails, you know, the important stuff...

You could also use these pages for photos, of you and your boyfriend, loved ones etc. Or a mood-board of a bunch of things that really inspire you. So that you see them every day!
The planner is also filled with loads of handy pages such as a page to write down all your details, a ruler, mini calendars, travel planning, a world map with a list of time zones, flight durations, dialling codes/plate codes, measures and conversions (super handy), and even a page on international sizes.
On the actual pages where you plan you have a whole page for each day. Bullet pointed down the side is time slots, from 8am till 8pm. Personally I like that it stops at 8pm as thats when I think you should have some 'you time' and relax for the evening. At the bottom of every page is a space to write down the temperature for that day, perfect if you're a fashion blogger and you plan outfits in advance. 

I love how the time slots are done hourly for me, saves me a great deal of time. I literally write down the slots as '8am - 9am write Monday's blog post' and it keeps me super organised and makes sure that jobs are done within a time limit. You know, so you don't get distracted by Instagram... 

Again I use post it notes to highlight important things, often I use them as a tick list if I don't want to time slot some bits. Mainly errands, I'll just write down and bullet point on a post it note so I can neatly cross them out. (Toast post it notes are from Paperchase, I know you're jealous)
The details of this planner are just so fricken' adorable, from the little Snoopy illustrations to the inspiring quotes this little guy is worth every loving penny!
