So Me and My Big Ideas recently launched The Happy Planner Girl line of planner products. This line includes planners and accessories in four different themes. These planners all retail for $29.99 and are available online, at Hobby Lobby and Jo-anns.
Glam Girl– More of a girly setup with teals and pinks with a lined vertical layout. (Love the lines!) This planner would be perfect for a beauty blogger or makeup lover.
Daydreamer– This planner is filled with pastels and has a zen feel. Lots of florals and chill inspirational quotes are all over the line. The planners feature a horizontal layout.
Trendsetter– More of a girly setup with teals and pinks with a lined vertical layout. (Love the lines!)
Goal Getter- This planner includes goal setting pages, neutral colors, and hourly days in the weekly view.
Each line includes classic and mini size planners and the best part is that these planners are DELUXE planners and include brand new metal discs. Exciting, right?
So, like I said I decided on the Goal Getter planner to use as my 2018 home planner. This planner is geared to people with busy schedules with an hourly setup and extra goal planing sheets.
Ok, first of all, can we talk about this marble? It is perfect. I just got a marble phone case and I love that it will match. I am even thinking about using the marble on the outside cover instead.
So let’s get right into it. One of the things that drew me to this planner was the goal setting pages in the front. They are not super intense, but feel like a great way to sit down and reflect/look forward at the beginning of the year. I am already looking forward to spending time thinking about how I want to form my 2018 and these these sheets are perfect.
Now we are on to the months. Where in the other planners this area is used to write down birthdays/special dates/ect, the Goal Getter planner uses this space to revisit those goals and see where you are. A great way to stay on track during the year.
The monthly view brings us back to something we are used to. Nice and simple grayscale which is my favorite. That way you can customize the planner and color schemes to your own needs and wants.
So next is the weekly view. Like I mentioned before, this one has an hourly system which is new to the Happy Planner. I like how there is a space for general to dos or priorities on the top. I am still thinking about how I will use this planner, but am coming up with some ideas. Because my schedule is fairly set I don’t write my work schedule in my planner, however my husband’s schedule is a little more irregular so I always write it down so I know when to expect him and such. So instead of writing it just with a bullet point sticker I think I will go to the hour he gets off work and write it there. The same with dinner, I will write it in at the time we plan to eat. This will help give the days a more linear feel which will help with busy days.
The day only goes from 7am-7pm which will work but does not encompass my entire day. However, generally I don’t have multiple evening events so I can just write the evening plans on the 7pm slot and keep dinner in the 6pm.
So one of the most popular aspects of this new planner launch is the metal discs so I went ahead and took one out from this planner and one from a regular planner and compared them.
The discs are aluminum and seem the be the actual color, not painted. This is great as the paint on the plastic discs sometimes chips and with these discs it will not. Also, weight wise the discs were fairly comparable so you don’t have to worry about the new discs weighing you down. As far a durability I was unable to break or bend the disc with my hands, however you will see from the photo that my comparison disc did break, actually while I was removing it from a planner for this use.
As of now I have not heard of the discs being sold separately, but that does not mean it won’t happen in the future. At the least if you grab one of these planners now you could put the metal discs in another planner in the future which is great.
