Hi everyone! I am so excited to be writing my first blog post for marionsmithdesigns. My name is Lindsay O'Neill, and you may already know me as @lindsayplans on Instagram.
I officially joined the planner world in January 2015, but I have been using agendas since I can remember.
Everyday I am blown away by the wonderful people in this "planner community" on social media. I have been able to meet so many new and amazing friends, and I can't wait to show you this beautiful planner from Marion!
So when my planner arrived, it was packaged in this beautiful gold paper. Marion also included some fun date seal stickers and this adorable "donut forget" notepad.
As you can see, the inside of the planner has a white and gold foil heart pattern. This is something very unique to Marion's planners, as I have never seen this dual pattern before. The mint colour looks amazing with the white and gold foil. There are many pockets and pouches to hold your planner essentials. This is something else that is very important to me when deciding on a planner. There are 4 pockets in the front, and 2 more in the back,
There is also a pen loop, which makes planning on the go much easier!
One of my favourite things about this pretty planner is the creative spin Marion puts on her inserts. Instead of having all of the "typical" inserts, she has also included fun, planner-addict related inserts including a pen swatch and a washi tape swatch insert. I have yet to use the pen swatch insert, but here is how I used the washi tape insert! I will definitely need to get some more. This is a great way to keep track of which stores have your favourite washi.
The daily inserts have so much room on them, with a beautiful floral background, and I personally love how the writing spaces are in different blocks. This allows me to use different sections for different things. I used the large blank space to document notes I took while speaking to my cell phone company (as you can see, it was not a successful call!) and I used the small lined section to document my food for the day.
This planner is truly amazing, made with high quality products, and a lot of creativity. Marion makes the perfect planner-addict planner, and I am so excited to be a part of her creative team! The photos I have linked are from my instagram account, and I frequently post photos of my Marion Smith Designs planner. On my next post, I will be showing you how I use the weekly inserts to plan "my week in lists".
Thanks for reading!
