New kikki.K – Met You



This new collection from kikki.K caught me by surprise – which is always an awesome thing for us planner/journal junkies right? This new personal, medium size planner is from the ‘Met You’ collection which is perfect for Valentine’s Day (it’s right around the corner – how crazy!). Now, the planner is a limited edition online exclusive so if you want one in your collection you better get hustling. Do I have any intention of buy another planner you ask? (Family look away)… Yes. Yes I do. How could I not? I don’t know about you but I think pretty little planners like these ones are works of art and there’s always room for new art, right? Right? Just take my money kikki-K!

New kikki.K planners!

kikki.K's new planners
I’m a little kikki.K krazy at the moment but can you blame me? Have you seen the gorgeous new planners they released this week?! I was going to grab one of the Limited Edition Lilac organisers but I am glad that I held off. The new pink lavender planners are so pretty! I love the gold foil detail too – it looks beautiful. I have one winging its way to me so I’ll give you a look inside as soon as it arrives!

Oh and if pink isn’t your thing kikki.K have released sage green planners with silver foil accents too. They are equally as gorgeous and while I really, really want to add one to my collection (like reeeeaaaallllly) I had to pick one. What would you choose? Pink or green?

8 cute list ideas for your journal

At the start of the year I decided to try Bullet Journaling. I’ve talked before about my love for my Day Designer and Kikki.K planners and I do love them. I do. But I’ve found that I needed a journal/time planner that is flexible and that’s what my BuJo provides (I’ll introduce you to my BuJo soon).

I keep my journal in a Midori Traveler’s Notebook and, at the moment, it’s perfect. While to day-to-day planning stuff is important it’s also important to fill it with the ephemera of life. One of my go-to ways of tracking memories and random stuff is via list making. Here are some of my favourite list making spreads. Got any of your own you can share?

There are only 45 sleeps ’til Christmas! Yay! Are you feeling the Christmas spirit? I am. I think Christmas is the best time of the year. kikki.K is certainly feeling the Christmas love. They’ve recently released their Christmas 2015 collection and it’s super cute of course.

9 of the best take anywhere notebooks

If you carry your notebook around with you (in your bag, thrown onto the back seat of the car etc) you’ll know the importance of sturdiness. The last thing you need is a cover that is dog-eared or scratched up or ruined. Not only does it make your notebook look tatty, it also kills inspiration.

You needn’t worry about such things with these notebooks. They’ve been designed for rough and rugged use. You can take them anywhere and they’ll withstand the toughest treatment.

(While Moleskine’s don’t appear on this list their omission is definitely not a snub. I use Moleskines all the time and I think they are superb. I wanted to showcase some other notebooks – perhaps ones you’ve never heard of – because it’s a big, wide world out there and it’s full of new notebooks to discover.)

Hello autumn!

It’s officially autumn down under! Even though we have a few hot days here and there, the temperatures are starting to cool down. It’s getting darker earlier and getting light later and before you know it – at the blink of an eye – we’ll be cranking up the heater and adding an extra doona to the bed.

Autumn really is a magical season.

The loveliness of Kikki-K

I haven’t worshiped at the altar of Kikki-K for a while. I’m so glad that they’ve opened a store close by – I can get a fix whenever I want (and it’s right next door to a T2 store which is really, really dangerous for my wallet).

I’ve got a nice, big Kikki-K stash in my closet and, looking at these lovely new products, I’ll be adding to it pretty soon!
