Getting My Plan On!* || With Stick To Stigu

If you've been reading my blog for a while now, it's likely you'll have seen my review of the Stick to Stigu 2016 Planner; published earlier this year. I raved about the planner then, and I've been using it ever since. So when I was offered the chance to review the new and improved 2017 Planner* from Stick to Stigu, I jumped at the chance. But not only am I sharing my review with you today, I'm also giving one lucky reader the chance to win a 2017 Stigu Planner themselves! Read on to the end for details on how to enter.

It's safe to say that I jump around from diary to diary, a lot. I started the year with an organiser, then along came my trusty Stigu planner. I jumped on the bullet journal bandwagon, and I actually do still use my bujo for certain areas of my life. And I ended the year with a Ban.Do agenda, another organiser and the new Stigu. Phew! The reason I can't stick with just one planner is two-fold. Reason numero uno, there are way too many pretty designs out there, and I want them all! Reason two? I've never been able to find a diary that totally ticks all my boxes. 

But the Stick to Stigu Planner ticks a lot of boxes. Like, 99% of them, at least. So, what do I, clearly a discerning connoisseur of planners, look for in a planner? 

- Lots and lots of note space

- Space for doodles, mind maps or to-do lists

- A horizontal spread (it's so much easier than a vertical layout!)

- A lovely look and feel 

- Something fun, that I genuinely look forward to planning in

I don't really think I'm asking for a lot, am I? Well I can't be, because the Stigu Planner has ticked all of the above boxes, and more. That's right, more! How can that be possible you might be asking? Well, let me tell you. And by tell you, I mean show you; because pictures speak louder than words!

The new and improved Stick to Stigu Planner, let's call it Stigu 2.0, features every blogger's must-have; a page for your 2017 goals! Before Stigu 2.0, I didn't even know I needed this page in a planner. Now it's a mandatory requirement, as far as I'm concerned!

Fun, colourful, quirky designs and illustrations are the name of the game in Stigu 2.0. Every page is just a pleasure to look at, and that makes planning so much more fun. 

February boasts a horizontal spread of heart shapes. I mean, how cute? And fun?! This is definitely my favourite page in the planner.

Rest and Zest practices throughout; to help inspire, motivate and calm you as you make your way through the year. And if 2017 is anything like 2016, we're all going to be needing these practices to get us through, right?!

Plenty of frickin' note space. That's what I'm talking about. Stigu 2.0 not only has plenty of blank pages in the back for notes/phone numbers/doodles, but each double spread features one, mostly blank, page for you to scribble on. I use this page for weekly to-do lists, shopping lists and meal plans!

Stigu 2.0 feels more professional, more grown-up looking; with a leather feel, hard cover design that, honestly, wouldn't look out of place on my desk, at work! But if you prefer something more colourful, Stigu 2.0 has two other designs that might be right up your alley. Shop the collection, which also includes notebooks and to do's, on the Stigu website! 

Now, if I've successfully convinced you that you need one of these planners in your life, great! And if I haven't, go back to the beginning of this post and start reading again. Because you all need one of these planners in your life. Of that, I am sure. And now that you're all convinced, why not enter my giveaway for an opportunity to win your own Stick to Stigu Planner?
