Anyone else ever have the problem of being stuck in a continuous loop of buying either shampoo or conditioner again before the other? And by that I mean buying them once at the same time, then running out of one of them before the other. So then you’re constantly stuck buying one at a time now when you need it instead of both.
Conditioner – 1.. Sarah – 0.
Hahahahaha, good evening everyone (morning or afternoon depending where you are hehe) and welcome back to my blog ♡
Today I am SO excited to share with you one of my very first reviews! Surprisingly it has nothing to do with makeup – believe me, I’m shocked too. As many of you have gathered by now though, I do like and try my best to stay as organized as I can. In case you’re new here, I have maybe 10 different journals with different things specified for each one -just to give you a small little insight there. That’s basically how I like things to be. I also struggle with being very forgetful sometimes and that’s just how I am. That being said, it’s completely the reason I’m attached to my Planner.
I probably looked at 50+ different sites just trying to expand my options and finally I found Bloom Daily Planners. Now just to give y’all a quick run down here are some of the products they offer: daily planners, planner stickers, notebooks, addresses books, teacher planners, wedding planners, file folders, planning pads, binders, desk calendars, etc.
I have purchased my own 2017 daily planner and their classic Sticker Sheets. Then when they launched their new 2017-2018 pre-order collection, I pre-ordered their new holiday sticker sheets. All pre-orders will be sent out by June 15th in case anyone was wondering. Bloom Planners was also very kind enough to send me a package to review which included another 2017 daily planner, a notebook, and an 8.5″ x 11″ planning pad.
So of course I already had my own planner and fell absolutely in love with it. They do also have an Ultimate Planner which retails for USD $29.95, unlike the daily planners which are USD $14.95. Comparing the two, I realized personally I much preferred the daily planner more. The fact it was smaller (easy to carry around and travel with) and much cheaper was just a bonus. I don’t like “undated” planners and planners that only have a “monthly” spread – I prefer having a weekly spread as well. The Ultimate Planner is undated and has no weekly spread so I was basically sold on the daily planner. But note, that is just something based on personal preference. The daily planner has many different pages: goals, class schedules, notes, addresses, to-do lists, and more. The one thing I will say is that I wish it was just slightly bigger height wise. The planner has a front and back pocket and I wanted to slide my sticker sheets inside; however, the stickers are longer vertically than the planner is. That’s honestly my only negative thing to say about it!
Everyone knows I’m a huge notebook fanatic – I have many and feel no shame about it. From browsing the website multiple times I had a picture in my head about how big I thought the notebook was even though they had the dimensions written. I wasn’t the perfect visualizer but if you are then here ya go.. 7″ Wide x 10″ Tall x .2″ Thick.
In reality it’s actually a bit bigger than what I thought initially and I love it. The design you see is called “Bohemian Ikat” and it’s even more gorgeous in person. I’ve never been more obsessed with a notebook. If you want one that’s great for school, work, or just taking notes – this is one that gives a lot of room to write (perfect for those with bigger handwriting).
Now I’ve never had a planning pad until now and it’s probably one of the most convenient things a person could have. I think it would honestly be PERFECT for someone who works in an office – just keep this on your desk and plan away. Or even maybe a stay-at-home mom. Plan the week with the kids and have all your notes, things to do, and main focuses in one neat area. There are also 6″ x 9″ planning pads as well if you want something a little smaller and there are many different types. This is obviously the one I have but if this one doesn’t fit your preferences then you do have options, which is something I love about this brand. One of the pads I want to pick up in the future is the “Grocery List” planning pad. By first glance I feel it’ll be very useful to everyone ranging from college students to busy parents. If you happen to have this already, comment below how you like it!
