A Giveaway From Personal Planner.

To say that I luuuuuuuurve personal planners or diaries, would be an understatement.

 So when David from Personal Planner contacted me about running a giveaway on my blog, how could I possibly refuse? Even though I have seen a few of these giveaways going around at the moment, there was no way in hell I was going to say no!

I mean, have a look at these little babies!

They are bright, colourful and you can basically design it yourself!

I think that is such a plus, because I always struggle to find what I'm looking for when it comes to a daily planner.

They are always really plain and boring, with no nice colours to choose from, except for the odd lucky find.

And imagine being able to put one of your own photos on the front!

I've died and gone to planner heaven!

Those who know me well, know that I am very particular about my diary/planner.

I like pretty colours, and plenty of space to write.

My whole life goes in mine, and NO-ONE is allowed to touch it! 

I don't even like people resting things on it, like a cup or a plate (husband!!).

And no-one other than me writes in it.


So I can't wait to start planning mine.

To see just how easy it is, go to the Personal Planner website.

In seven simple steps, you're basically done, and you have a planner that suits all your needs!

As quoted by David:

"You can change colour, text and design on front/back cover as well as inlay. There are also clever boxes for a to-do list, gym session, preschool, idea of the week and weather. Friend’s and family member’s birthdays can also be added to the inlay directly from Facebook. We print and deliver the finished product directly to  your doorstep."

Another thing that I love about these planners is that you can choose the start date. So if you prefer a financial year planner, you can start it in July.

Or if, like me, you have already gone out and bought a diary/planner for this year (DOH!), then put the start date as January 2014.

The options are practically endless!

And, one of my fabulous lucky readers gets to win one!

How awesome is that?

But hurry, as this competition is running for one week only!

To be eligible you need to:

I was not paid for this post. I was offered a free planner for one of my readers, as well as one for myself. All opinions are my own.

It's Tuesday, so of course I am linking in with the gorgeous Jess at Essentially Jess for IBOT.


  1. I LOVE my Personal Planner. It holds my life inside it !!! I got home on Friday and couldn't find it - PANIC STATIONS - EVERYTHING in there is important to me. Knew it had to be at home or work but couldn't find it at home. Got to work yesterday morning and looked around my desk - couldn't find it - MORE PANIC STATIONS !!! Glanced over near the printer - then I remembered, I had printed something out before I left work on Friday and had been in the middle of packing up when I went to the printer and for some reason had taken it with me there and put it down while I sorted through some printing and forgot to pick it up !!!!
    Mine runs from August - July because that is when I had finally had enough of the sucky diary that iPhone calls a diary function and went back to pen and paper - best decision in a long time !!!!
    Can't wait to plan my diary for next year and make some changes to things that didn't work that well for me this year.
    I already like your FB page and I already like Personal Planner FB page.
    Have the best day and thank you so much again for your support - it's so good to talk to someone who gets it !
    Love, hugs and positive energy !

  2. I'm so like you with my diary! I had one last year and wasn't that happy with it to be honest, not enough space to write. I haven't got myself a diary yet for this year, and this diary would be perfect for me. If it was to win the Personal Planner I would finally organise my blogging schedule and my ME time, like actually writing down that I WILL EXERCISE! And I suppose I would enter family appointments as well, I wouldn't be entirely selfish!

    Already like both your page and that of Personal Planner. Thanks so much for a fabulous giveaway.

  3. I have stationery fixations, and not much is better than a planner or journal. Especially one you can CUSTOMISE within an inch of its life... If I was to win a Personal Planner I would be all over the website before you could say www!"
    Visiting from #teamIBOT!

  4. If I was to win a Personal Planner I would plan my next trip to Canada! All the details: the family I have to see, the friends I have to catch up with, the place I would love to go and the things I would love to eat!

  5. I probably should use one, but I just haven't ever tried it. I rely on my phone for keeping appointment reminders and contacts.

  6. I love the idea of a personal planner but my work diary doubles as that, and really isn't pretty. I even bought a diary so every day I wrote down 3 times I was grateful for and I've only written in it once - slack. I think I need a person planner, someone to follow ME around and sort me out. Great giveaway! Emily :)

  7. I already like both FB pages.
    If I were to win I might have a chance to keep organised with my eldest off to school next week (OMG), my youngest two to Day Care, swimming, dancing and whatever else is about to come my way!

  8. If I was to win a personal planner I would first do a little victory happy dance, and then totally get onto planning what it would look like and which photos/colours/ start dates it would have. I have been extremely slack and haven't got myslef a planner yet this year, so not me.

  9. These are totally awesome aren't they? Not entering to win, just dropping by to confirm how incredibly awesome they are

  10. I would suddenly become organised! Which is a far cry from the hap hazard mannor in which I currently operate!

  11. If I was to win a Personal Planner I would get caught being organised! 3 kids, full time job, husband who works casual and seriously relies on me to be organised for him, bills, fitness workouts, birthdays, anniversaries, swimming classes, little athletics, dress up days, parties ... wow - space to fit it all in!

    I am the fussiest person when it comes to diaries. So much so that I carry 2 with me no matter where I go - because that is what is needed to make sure that I have enough space and the format is just right.

    But now seeing Personal Planner I would never have to do this again. Ever! Oh the freedom I would have to actually do something for me rather than trying to keep up with everyone else. Thank you Tracey for sharing this wonderful idea.

  12. If I was to win a Personal Planner I would plan my studies to Fiji next year! By plan- I mean fund. I need to stay on track and save money, so I can save enough to hopefully study there by the time winter comes around again. :) A planer would definitely help.
    Thanks for hosting this! (Wow, my name's Tracy too!)

    'If I was to win a Personal Planner I would-organize my life. A lack of planning has caused so much stress and anxiety over the past year that this calender would be very very helpful.
