Let’s take a closer look!
To enlarge the screen of the video, click the square icon in the bottom right hand corner of the video (it will say ‘full screen’ when you hover your mouse over the icon).
The cover is a bit weird. It’s thin cardstock around the wire binding and pages, rather than the same size as the pages.
The cover design is also different to most planners. The color printing is great and there’s gold foil effect on the peacock tail.
As this is an undated planner, there is no date printed on the cover
Not sure why it has a tassel. I am not a fan…
Approx 1.5cm thick
This belongs to page
The usual annual overview pages included with most planners.
Lined writing space <3
No monthly calendar
My favorite weekly spread – horizontal format with the days of the week on the left and lines notes space on the right.
Would be even better if Sat and Sun weren’t combined into ‘weekend’ and the same amount of planning space as a weekday.
I tried various ballpoint, gel, fine tip and marker tip pens. Overall, the paper quality isn’t that great. There was some ghosting on the back side of the page from almost every pen I tried.
Pros of the Planner
- Portable size
- Minimalist color scheme
Cons of the Planner
- The cover is cardstock so it will probably damage easily
- The tassel is annoying & pointless
- No tabs
- No notes pages
- Weekends share the same amount of space as a weekday
- Expensive for what it is. There are planners in a similar price range which include a higher quality cover and more pages (e.g. monthly calendars)
Would I use this planner?
I like horizontal + notes weekly spreads but the pages won’t lay flat due to the odd cover. This would be a good on the go planner and leave your hardbound / big / heavy planner at home. If you need just a bit more space to plan each week, this cold be a good 2nd planner or space to pre-plan the week and review like I do with the Plum Paper (see here).
