Happy 2014, everyone! I hope you guys had a blast partying and spending time with your loved ones!
Every time New Year is fast approaching, people start to contemplate on what their New Year's resolution will be. I am one of those people who has a mental list of resolutions. But what really excites me more than having a new list is having a new annual planner. Yes, I still use a planner til this day. I've been using one since middle school.
Planners have evolved over the years. There's even an app for planners now (for those who'd prefer to have their planner on their phone). But the app doesn't quite cut it for me. I still want an actual notebook. I'm just old school like that. For years, I've been using the Belle De Jour planner. I use about 2 planners - 1 for work; 1 for personal. I find myself reaching for my BDJ planner more though. I guess it's the inspiring words and just the fact that it's colorful that makes me want to look at it over and over again.
If you are a close friend of mine, you'd know how forgetful I could be. This is another reason why I need a planner in my life. I just have to jot down my plans, events I have to go to, appointments etc. as there is a FAT chance I'd forget about it. I even write down my Monthly Favorites because I tend to forget what those faves are! True story. Most of all, a planner helps me with time management. I cannot stress how golden time is.
With that said, I am giving away 1 Belle De Jour planner to 1 person! The mechanics are very simple!
