Etsy Shop: PlannerAddict25

Hi everyone! I know it's been awhile since I posted last, but trust me it was worth the wait! I have been lucky enough to be able to collaborate with a super sweet girl named, Rachel! She has her very own Etsy shop filled with tons of adorable stationery items. If you're like me and you love decorating, stickering, and organizing your planner, you have to check out Rachel's shop!


Meet Rachel
//Born and raised in Sycamore, IL
//Currently live in Wausau, WI - moved here for a job out of college
//Went to University of Illinois (Bachelors in science in chemical engineering)
//Obsessed with all things planning
//Love crafting in general
//Adore animals, especially dogs
//addicted to Starbucks - especially their refreshers (Rachel, I'm totally with you! #veryberryrefresher)
//I love any pastel color especial blues, greens, teals, and pinks
//I feel at home in the kitchen - love love love cooking and baking


Look at all the fun things Rachel makes in her shop! The birthday themed stickers will be perfect for remembering peoples birthdays, and of course I had to decorate my birthday! (My 18th birthday is next week, mark your calendars!;) 
I'll be using the fruit and veggie stickers as little reminders to keep eating healthy.
How stinkin' cute are those gold bow stickers? They may just be my favorite stickers of all. And when you buy them in the PlannerAddict25 shop, you get 15 bows for $2! You can't beat that.



What's that gold rectangle thing? It's a dashboard! No, not the kind in your car, a planner dashboard! It's the must have item you never thought you needed in your planner. It's a laminated piece of paper that has coil clips so you can pop it right into your planner and easily pull it out to move it from week to week. It's perfect for writing to-do lists, special notes, packing lists, or upcoming appointments. You really can do just about anything with the dashboard, you could even get artistic and use it to draw on! The possibilities are endless. If you want a dashboard but the gold foil one isn't your thing, that's fine! There are tons of dashboards to choose from in the PlannerAddict25 shop.



One of my favorite things about the dashboard is that when you use a dry erase marker, the ink dries so you can shut your planner without having to worry about smearing your writing! When you're ready to take the writing off, just wipe over the dashboard with a paper towel and it looks brand new.


I'm so excited to make my planner look all cute with the PlannerAddict25 items!! 
I've already made a wishlist of items I need from the PlannerAddict25 shop.
My favorites: one // two // three // four // five


Isn't Rachel just the coolest? She's even offering 10% off to all ATNC readers!
When you go to check out, type in ALLTHINGS10 to receive the discount!

Design Love Planner Review


I am so excited to tell you guys about this planner! 
This is the one I chose to be my official planner for 2015.
I went through a bit of a planner roller coaster this year, first I bought the Lilly Pulitzer agenda, then I bought the Kate Spade agenda, and then I finally found my planner sole mate
It's crazy how much my taste changes, but I'm so glad I finally found the perfect planner for me!
Let's be honest, picking a planner is a big deal. It's the item you're going to be using every day for an entire year,  you'll take it along with you everywhere, and it will either make or break your organization goals. So because of all of those reasons, it's so important to chose the one that's right for you.


WHAT I LOVE

The layout of the planner // I cannot emphasize the importance of this enough! I absolutely love that this planner has the traditional monthly view, a unique weekly view, and a to-do list section for each day of the year. 
The daily to-do lists // I'm a person who is constantly writing to-do lists. I love the feeling of getting things done and checking things off as I go! So having a to-do list section is life changing!
The ribbon bookmarks // They're adorable and super handy for quickly flipping to pages.
The gold foil details // The perfect planner not only has to be functional, but it also has to look pretty!
The spiral bounding // This makes it so much easier to write in because you can flip the pages easily and fold the planner in half! I hate having to keep a planner flat and hold down the pages while I'm trying to write.
The thick paper // This planner is made with thick quality paper, not the cheap flimsy stuff! It's perfect because pens (specifically marker pens) don't bleed through the pages.
The stripes // I have an obsession with stripes, I think that's pretty clear by now.
The monthly art prints // Each month in the planner has a cute print which you can either leave in or tear out!
The pockets // There's not one but two pockets for sticking all your necessities in! This is huge for me.
The user guide // In the beginning of the planner there's a note from the designer, an introduction, and instructions on how to best utilize the Design Love Co. planner! I found this to be super helpful and a nice added touch.
The monthly goals & budget pages // I have yet to see this in a planner, until now. It's yet another way to stay organized, and plan out your spending each month.






WHAT I DON'T LOVE

The gold foil issues // I've only been using the planner for a month, and the gold foil is already coming off. I'm super bummed about this because I love the gold accents throughout the planner.
The overall size // Although I love that I can stick this planner in my purse, I don't love that there isn't always enough room for writing everything down. I would love for Design Love Co. to offer a bigger size for the 2016 planner.
The limited quantity // It seems like they either didn't make enough of these planners, or had overwhelming success selling them, because they sold out super quickly. You can find the odd one on eBay or another secondary seller but for the most part these babies are hard to find. Design Love Co. did say they'd have more planners available in the coming months, but I'm sure it'll be a very limited quantity.


Overall, I love love love this planner! It caters to my to-do list obsession, helps me stay organized, and looks super cute!

Tell me about your 2015 planner!
