As a freelancer/blogger, I find organisation is key to making sure that every day runs smoothly. As much as I wish my daily routine involved birds singing to me and rabbits laying out my clothes, the harsh reality is I am not a Disney princess and therefore Instead of animals I rely on a whole bundle of stationery to keep me organised.
My year runs according to my diary, every meeting/appointment/event is noted in here and this is where I plan my life.
My 2018 diary is from BusyB and is a day to a page, I like diaries that give me a lot of room to write in, this means that I can make notes for appointments and carry them with me wherever I go.
I love the design of this diary and I like that it has the elasticated band to hold the cover together.
This diary features a day-to-a-page layout, to do lists and a monthly planner, as well as a handy pen loop and elastic closure.

At the beginning of every week, I create a to-do list, this is broken down into posts I want to write and daily tasks. Once a task on the list has been successfully completed I highlight the task to make sure that I keep track of where I am at.
My List pad is also from BusyB and is an 80 weekly planner with tear-off sheets to take with you, it features gold-tipped edges and a beautiful foil design.

I adore Cath Kidston notebooks and in particular the Disney range. I love this book for keeping track of post ideas and noting down the post plan. The paper is a lovely quality and I think the day I reach the end of this book will be a sad one.
I also love that they have matching pens, I adore these pens to write with, they offer a fabulous grip and write fluidly.

Although I use a lot of stationery to stay organised, I also rely on mobile apps for when on the go. One of the apps I couldn’t be without is…
Cozi organizer app
Cozi allows you to programme in your day-to-day plans and then share it with other members who may need to know what you are doing. My boyfriend and I use this app to keep track of plans we have made with our families as well as events. Each person has a different colour which allows us to know who is doing what. one of my favourite things about Cozi is that it emails us our schedule for the week ahead.
What keeps you organised?
There was something very comfortable in having plenty of stationery.
Whatever you choose for your stationery is your favourite colour because it’s where you pour your heart out.
