My Planner and Sticker Obsession: The Beginning



If you have been following me on twitter then you know about my obsession with my planner and more recently, with stickers. Stickers were my very first love in this entire world, even before kittens, and I started collecting them when I was three, but as I grew up I forgot about my love for them, until now. I asked my mom yesterday, "Mom, where did my sticker collection go?" And she said, "I don't know, I probably threw them away." I think that is the worst thing I have ever heard to be quite honest, because had she kept them I would have a whole collection of vintage stickers from the 80s and 90s, but it would also mean my mom would be a hoarder, so maybe it's best she threw them out after 15 years of me not thinking about them. 

I have been a planner addict since college. I discovered my love for the planner during my freshman year of college after purchasing the school's planner at the school bookstore during orientation. I thought I was so cool; I had a college planner. I was so. freaking. cool. 

That planner ended up catapulting me into a planner obsession that lasted all four years of college, and my most exciting purchase every year was the school's newest planner for that year. My planner, at that point, was for function but not for fun, and I wasn't yet introduced to the love that is colored pens, sticky notes, and stickers (let's not even get started on washi tape, I hadn't even heard of the stuff at this point. Was it even a 'thing' back then?). Here's a picture to show you how well loved (if not very pretty) my planner from college was (I happened to find this in the closet of my bedroom at my parents house and got SO EXCITED to show you!!).

After college I struggled to find a planner that was similar in style to my school's planner, but I sadly failed in my quest. I found a small online community that was really into Louis Vuitton planners with Hello Kitty inserts, and I became obsessed with having one. After saving up money earned from my original Glitzy-Glam store, I finally decided to purchase a red Vernis Louis Vuitton planner with the hello kitty inserts from Amazon (this was a huge splurge for me, especially at the time), but after about a month I realized I wasn't using it, I wasn't even liking it, and I made the sad decision to sell it. I ended up using the money made from selling this planner to buy more makeup, which fueled my YouTube channel, which has fueled my planner kick, so it's really come around full circle in the end. The problem with that particular agenda was that the planner was too small, and also I didn't enjoy the rings inside the planner... they would hurt my hand when I would write on the left sides of the pages. After that fail of a planner quest, my love for agendas dwindled for a bit.

Fast forward about a year, and the obsession came back. We started selling agendas on Glitzy-Glam, so I grabbed one to use, and I fell back in love. I ended up filming a video on how I used to organize my planner for school, and people loved it. You can watch it here, if you are interested.



Once I started using planners again, I started to regret selling that red Louis Vuitton one; it had been so gorgeous and shiny and luxurious. I must have mentioned this in passing to my Mom, who always files things like that away in her head, because for my birthday that year she got me a Limited Edition Louis Vuitton planner. It was the most beautiful planner I had ever, and still have ever, seen. I promptly bought new Hello Kitty inserts and started to use her, but sadly, again after a few weeks, I realized it just wasn't working... the rings were bothering my hand again. 

Thankfully I didn't give this planner away like the red one because I would be so upset about it now; instead I kept it and used it in my closet "as decoration" (it's that pretty), but as soon as I get back to LA I am going to find a use for it. If anyone has any ideas on what I could use this little purse planner for when I'm already using a big one, please let me know in a comment!
My original red agenda on the left, and the limited edition one my Mom got me for my birthday on the right.

My planner love didn't come back again until last year, when I first learned about the Erin Condren life planners, and realized that it was set up in the same way as my beloved college ones were. I was sold, instantly. Shout out to Kristina over at PrettyShinySparkly for being the person to introduce me to these planners; I ended up getting the same one she got and loved it. I used her link, and received $10 off. If you would like to receive $10 off, you can order through this link here. You sign up and then you will get your credit in an email. This link is one of those referral links where you get $10 and I get $10 in credit, but obviously I don't need another planner, so last time I used the credit collected through people ordering through that link to give away a couple of planners to readers of this blog. That way, iheartyoucoffee readers helped out other readers! 

This is my gorgeous planner from last year. It's the Turquoise Gold Foil Edition.


I fell in love with that planner, and with it came my love for colored pens and washi tape. My entire planner became a rainbow wonderland of color-coding and pretty patterned tape. I still didn't feel the need to have 1000 different washi tapes; I wasn't obsessed, I just liked my 20 pack of Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens and a few rolls of metallic washi tape that I bought from amazon. For the record, I still adore these pens, and after a whole year of using them they are still working perfectly and none have dried up. Plus, the colors are bright and beautiful, as you can see in the above picture. Oh, and my little tin of cute washi strips that I thought was so unique and brought so much color and fun to my agenda without costing more than $5 came with me everywhere. 
__________________________________

Since then a year has passed, and as it was time to order a new planner, I bopped on over to the Erin Condren website and saw that she has pink ones this year!! Omg the excitement levels over this pink planner were through the roof. I ordered a Bubblegum Platinum Foil Edition. It's not going to even ship until the 19th and I am being VERY impatient about the whole thing, but I know it will be worth the wait. The reason her shipping takes a long time is because everything is personalized, so it's all worth it in the end, but I do wish I had it right this very moment. 

Since then I have been obsessing over planner decorating videos, organizational pictures, and little stationary stores, and I have purchased orders from 7 different etsy stores already, as well as a haul from both Target and JoAnn's (shoutout to Macy over at JoAnn's for being AH-MAZING). I already have a sticker organizational system within a expandable file folder WHICH ALREADY BARELY CLOSES, and my mom thinks I'm insane. I had an obsession like this twice before; once when I got into makeup and started my YouTube channels, and once when I became obsessed with getting a kitten and got Pinecone. I'm a do-er, you know?


Tonight I decided, I'm not waiting anymore, I NEED TO DECORATE A PLANNER PAGE AND START ORGANIZING MY LIFE DARN IT! So I grabbed last year's planner, opened it up to a January week I hadn't used (I didn't receive my 2014 planner until late Jan), and decorated it up. I decorated the whole week and then planned out tomorrow (Monday) and some weekly goals and then left the rest blank to fill out as I go. I don't have all my new stickers and accessories that I have ordered from Etsy but I think I did quite well with my Target and JoAnn's goodies. I'm going to use it for this week until my new baby comes. 

I think I have come a long way in terms of decorating in the years I have had planners, don't you think?

Ta da! My new planner!
I want to do an entire series of planner decorating ideas and hauls on both this blog and YouTube, and would love a cute name for it like I have for my book reviews, "Glitteratures", and my vlogs, "Glitter Gossips". Any ideas? It can be related to my YouTube name or my blog name, so anything with Glitter, Coffee, Hearts, etc. Please please PLEASSEEEE leave me a comment below with your ideas!

I'm also highly considering getting a Kikki-K planner because they are so darn beautiful, but I think the binder rings would bother me the way they Louis Vuitton ones did. For any of you that have a Kikki-K, why did you pick that one over the Erin Condren? Does it hurt your hand? Is it worth getting one to try and compare them? 

So my questions for you are: 
Do you have any name ideas for my planner series? 
Do you have any ideas for what I can use my little LV planner for since I'm going to be using my big Erin Condren one too?
For current planner and sticker addicts: Do you have any favorite Instagram pages or Etsy stores I must check out?

Would you be interested in seeing things like sticker hauls? (LOL!)

Also, feel free to leave requests below for types of posts you would like to see within this series! And a giveaway for you lovely readers, of course...

  2. The smaller planner you could use to plan workouts/healthy eating plans. I find it easier to separate those from work/study planners.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I've been seeing people talking about bullet point journals lately, they look really cool! You can devise a symbol key (or use stickers!) to write lists of all your ideas, it seems like a good way to use a smaller planner. If you type 'bullet journal' into tumblr there are a few examples.

  4. I would love to see sticker hauls! I love my planner and washi tape!

  5. I almost bought that LV planner too but I knew I wouldn't use it lol. I can never stick to a planner for more than a month or 2. You could buy journal paper (i think LV sells it but i cant remember) and use it for blog or video planning, note planning, whatever?

  6. I've been toying with the idea of getting an Erin Condren planner for ages now but I think you've finally persuaded me! They're just so beautiful AND practical :)

  7. I'm completely with you on the planner/sticker obsession and would love to see videos!!

  8. You can use your LV planner to take in your handbag for everyday and the EC for a deeper, more detailed life planning :)
    "Planner Party" or "Organiser Obsession" as a name ;) xx

  10. I'm also obsessed with organisation and planners but being a student it's hard to gather sufficient funds to buy a very nice one! I'm going to do my best to save up for an Erin Condren planner, they're gorgeous! As for the series name.. maybe something along the lines of 'The Perfect Planner' would be cute! Alliteration seems to be the easiest route! I'd love to see sticker hauls too!

    I'm actually a blogger myself. I run a blog called The Girly Geek which is centred mostly around books and Young Adult fiction! Your glitterature videos are some of my favourite, I believe we have similar taste in books! It'd mean the world to me if you checked it out! :) ---> http://the-girlygeek.blogspot.com/

  11. I would love to see a sticker haul! :p And about the LV, maybe you could use it as like a little scrapbook with cinema tickets of photo's and stick them on the date where you did those things :) Just an idea :) Love! x

  12. I have been obsessed with planners since middle school. I love color cordinating them but had never seen people decorate them until you started tweeting about them. Now I've gone and bought stickers and plan to start decorating mine too. :-)

  13. I am obsessed as well *hangs head in shame*. I'm in Australia so while I have easy access to Kikki-k, I wish we had the Target goodies that all of you in the US have! I'm a little jealous!

  14. Love Erin Condren. Idea for series names: Glitterizing (like "organizing"), I Heart Organization

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am obssesed with planners! I'm using a Filofax Domino in A5 for pretty much a year now and I'm loving it more and more every day using it for EVERYTHING! :) I would love to see you do a planner series showing us your planner organisation and setup, sticker collection, hauls etc! Maybe you could use your LV planner for your YouTube and blog organisation or for projects around your house you want to keep track of? :) There are so many great ways to use and personalize a planner!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've been trying to find a way to integrate a planner into my "adult life" (ie: post-college), and I wasn't sure how. Then I had a bit of a "duh" moment- I have bills with due dates, I have meet-ups with friends, there are birthdays to celebrate! I plan on running out this weekend and getting a planner!

    And I want ALL. THE. STICKER. HAULS. :)

    1. the best part about being an adult is that you have a bit more money to spend on the fun stuff like stickers! There's no way I could have afforded that in school.

      Delete
  17. ummm names….Glitterisation (like organisation but with glitter) or all that stickers (like your youtube name). I legit just spent like half an hour trying to come up with both of those, or I don't know I'm thinking like 'secret agenda' or something. Don't know how you've come up with your other series names, that was difficult.

    My mum has a similar agenda but from Kikki K, the small leather one and she just uses it to write down appointments and stuff when she's out and about to then put on her big calendar at home.

    And I would absolutely love to see sticker and planner hauls and blog posts from you, your video you did was one of my favourites you've done, and it's also helping me organise my planner for this year, you've inspired me to actually write it all down rather than using ICal on my phone :D

  18. I love planners, and have been wanting an Erin Condren one for so long, since I saw your last blogpost about them; but just don't have the money :( This blogpost was a lovely read, thanks Elle xo

  19. A sticker haul video would be great to see. A review of your new Erin Condren planner would be super too :)

  21. So cool! I've been stationary obsessed lately as well. I still haven't found my perfect diary yet though but I bought a few accesories. Love this post Elle and hope your back is okay and getting better.

  24. I love planner and have been wanting an erin condren forever!!! i see however that carrying a big planner around with me all the time is quite difficult, so I have a smaller one in my purse and a big one at home. I guess you could do that with your LV! And you get to decorate twice!!
    My fav shop is MsWenduh on etsy, she also has a blog and a fb page that makes my feed look super pretty!!!
    I love that you're back onto blogging Elle!!

  25. If I were you I would name the series "Planning the Glitz". :D I am also ADDICTED to planning everything in my life, and my friends make fun of this but it's actually quite useful. You could film about the stickers, about what you have planned for a day, even vlogs. It would be very fun to watch.

    I'm sending you my regards and lots lots of love from Romania!

  26. I would totally love planner related and stickers hauls. My obsession with planners is old but my obsession with like decorating and using stickers is new. And the struggle is real to try and contain them all in one box

  27. I don't have a planner but am obobsessed with the videos... I also watch Thatayla and Belinda Selene they do planner videos too... Would love to see a series on this and hauls.. I too collected stickers when I was younger and kept most of mine (thankfully)... I hope u get better soon, I also had a back injury and had to have surgery... Good luck.. call your series Elle's Planner Series..

  31. I think my last comment did not went through. I have been on a planner hunt since last week! I am probably too picky. My favorite planner got discontinued. Grrr
    I don't have my planner yet but stickers are sure a must. I would love to sรฉe a haul!

  35. There's a YouTuber who is obsessed with organizing and agendas - @mypurpleylife on Instagramm and YT. She's cool! And maybe you could use you LV agenda for contacts and addresses, maybe store the address and name cards of the places you'd like to check out - you know, stuff like that. I've been planning to buy a separate agenda for this stuff for a few years now, maybe this year I'll finally do that:) oh, and have you tried Filofax, btw? Those are amazing! They hav different sizes, covers and many cool inserts)

  36. I love this planner, but the price not so much. And the shipping to europe is, wow. So this would be great to win.

  37. I would so be interested in sticker hauls~!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You can use the small planner as a wallet! A lot op people use their small planner as a wallet (mypurpleylife for example). With special inserts you can put a lot of cards in the planner!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I bought a Kikki K and I love it! I went for it over an EC just because I love to buy pretty inserts to track workouts/wish lists/blog posts etc. I don't find it hurts my fingers at all with the binder rings. Plus, living in Australia means access to the gorgeous Kikki K stores which I am addicted to shopping in! Would love to see planner "walk though".

    ReplyDelete
  40. Maybe you could call the series something like "I heart you stickers/planning"?
    Also, you could potentially replace the planner paper in the LV one with note paper and use it as an on-the-go notepad to jot down random thoughts or video/blog ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yes to sticker/planner hauls!! You could use the LV planner as a food/gym diary since its small enough to fit in your purse! Have you checked out the target dollar spot for washi tape & note pads etc!

    ReplyDelete
  42. OMG! Sticker haul!? YESS!! I would use the smaller LV planner as a notebook that I keep in my purse for shopping lists, etc. You would probably have to buy lined pages because the calendar that comes from LV might not have enough pages.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'd love to see sticker hauls and planner ideas! I've always used to-do lists instead of planning out my day, but I'm thinking I'd like to try planning again.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Loving you blog updates. I have now become a twitter stalker, hehe

    ReplyDelete
  45. You could use the LV one as a Pinecone planner. Like writing in everything Pinecone related. All the dates he has, his hair trimming treatments, fun stuff he did, what he discovered and just everything Pinecone did or has to do. I'm sure he has a planner worthy life!

  46. Do you have any ideas for what I can use my little LV planner for since I'm going to be using my big Erin Condren one too?

    One for blogging and maybe one for life plans, so appointments and meetings and social in one and all blog plans and youtube ideas in the other.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'd be interested in sticker hauls! :p Maybe as blog posts?

  48. I love a good planner, and those colourful pens! You've made me wanna be more organised

  49. I have the lilac Kikki-K planner! For some reason the lilac went 1/2 price after Xmas.
    Writing on the left side of the page has already annoyed me a little but it's just so pretty that it won't deter me too much. There are 6 tabs besides just calendar plus a note pad at the back so it's good for tracking projects etc. on Instagram I like jen_plans. Her handwriting makes me want to go back to primary school and learn again!

  50. Now, this may seem a bit odd BUT...I'm one of those types of people that believe in the saying, "things happen for a reason"...People come into our lives, things fall into our lap, certain events force us down a path we may NEVER have taken otherwise...These are just a few examples of what I'm talking about.
    I'm sure that breaking your back will be one of those events in your life that, in years to come, you'll look back and see it was one of those "defining moments"...one where you might have pondered LIFE questions...one where it had you thinking about things/issues you never had thought about before...
    Anyway....perhaps the planner series could be titled, "Back to Planning"... Idk...I thought the title could mean more than just planners...maybe something more personal for you...

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have the same issue as you. I was obsessed with planners in college and credit them for being the sole reason why anything got done on time while I was an undergrad. I would love to know how you use your planner in your adult life and make it functional in a tech savvy world.

    ReplyDelete
  52. love the stickers in your new planner! Where did you get them? I've had a planner for a few years but haven't really used it until now. I got cute stickers and washi tape from Kikki K (I'm Australian) so now I'm motivated! Your blogs and videos will be even more inspiration to keep it up.

    I would love to see sticker hauls and anything planner related! Your college planner video was what got me wanting one in the first place. I couldn't live without my school diary throughout high school and university, but after that I stopped using one.

    I think an idea for blog posts or videos could be how to use one for people that don't necessarily have a lot of things to put in it (like if you just have a 9-5 job and no kids etc) and how to stay motivated to keep using it.

    A name for the series could be GlitStick. Really looking forward to the upcoming series!

  53. Sticker haul sounds lovely! Also maybe once you figure out what to use the red LV planner, a tutorial of you decorating/organizing it? ๐Ÿ˜Š

    ReplyDelete
  54. Elle-
    I am as planner obsessed as you! I decided to splurge on an Erin Condren lesson planner last year (I teach middle school lit in an urban area - my girls love your glitterature recommendations, haha!). I absolutely LOVE IT! I've been weighing the pros and cons of spending the money on another one, or if I should get the Life Planner instead.

    I've been turning some things around in my head as a name for the planner series, but nothing cute comes to mind. All I can think of is "I heart my: planner" as a play on your blog name. I'm sure a reader/viewer more creative than me will come up with something adorable and clever, though!

    As far as sticker hauls, I think you should do a big one of this first order, and then after that possible just Instagram your sticker purchases?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh, and as far as the little LV planner, my suggestion would be to keep that in your purse with a plain pen, and keep the larger planner and colorful pens at home. Throughout the day you can add to the LV planner on the fly. When you get home at night, you can sit down with all your supplies, and spend some Relaxing time adding to your big planner and getting ready for the next day or week, or whatever.

      Delete
  55. I like the idea someone said above of doing a "bullet journal". As someone who also loves colored pens and stickers, I think you could use a different color bullet/shape/sticker for each category, e.g. a pink heart for love life updates, a yellow star for career updates, a red Y for YouTube updates. Let me know what you think!

  57. Wow! I ddin't think anyone else had as big an obssession with planning as me! I'm not even a very organised person but that is why I love planners... and lists! I love alejandra costello organisning queen on youtube. check out her videos and planners xx

  59. Oh how I love this post! I too am in love with writing my schedule down. This year I picked up a small $1 planner at target just to keep in my work bag. Sadly it's so small there's no room for decorating. I would love one of those big planners to really make pretty and decorate with stickers and washi tape!! Too fun!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I adore planners! I've been using my filofax none stop the past 2 years and it's improved my life for the better. I normally use that and a basic planner then for college. Everyone always comments on how organized I am and it's all down to the planners. I need them due to my scatty brain so I write everything I need to do in them so I'd be lost without mine. I even recently got into waishi tape and it makes such a difference to how my planner looks. I got the cutest ones from Cath Kidston.

  63. I really like the name "Glitter Guide" or "Elle's Glitter Guide" in terms of the guide being your planner/planning supplies like stickers! I've been totally obsessed with planners/stickers since university as well and still use one. There's nothing better than planning out your day AND making it completely adorable at the same time. I can't wait to see more posts. Your Erin Condren planner will be drool-worthy I'm sure!

    ReplyDelete
  64. You have also rekindled my planner love. The last 2/3 years I've been using a daytime from Staples. I really enjoy it but it's just kind of heavy to carry around with me. And with a full time job and no hubby or kids yet I found there was just far too much space that was going unused. I can't really plan in my job as so much is constantly changing. I recently ordered the Midori Travelers Notebook and I can't wait to get it. I got the inserts from DIYfish on etsy. You do have to sew your inner pages together into books and it brought back my love for making books again. :) Thank you for resurfacing my love for all these wonderful things (planners, stickers, book making) wether it was mentioned directly or indirectly!

  65. I'd love to see sticker hauls! I like to give myself a little sticker on my wall calendar for each day that I exercise. Feels a little kindergarten, but it's fun!

  69. Dear Elle,
    to answers your questions;
    Do you have any name ideas for my planner series? Glitterize your life, maybe? I can#t think of anything else right now;)
    Do you have any ideas for what I can use my little LV planner for since I'm going to be using my big Erin Condren one too?
    -You could use it for things like cleaning schedules, meal plans(Maybe keeping a food diary if that's something you are interested in), work out plans, shopping lists, any lists really like if you have a packing list or something else that isn't a daily to-do list or simply doesn't fit in your other planner. There is lots of uses for that little guy, don't worry. Also maybe to write down if you really like a product/look you want to talk about on your blog or in a video. Or an outfit you discovered and want to wear for a special occasion.
    For current planner and sticker addicts: Do you have any favorite Instagram pages or Etsy stores I must check out?
    -No, sadly not:(
    Would you be interested in seeing things like sticker hauls? (LOL!)
    -I am interested in seeing anything that you are passionate about! (I also really love stickers)

    I hope that was somewhat helpful
    much love

  71. I would love to see your decorated pages once you get your new one. You could open the rings on any of the binder type planners to do the majority of your writing and decorating. Then if you need to jot something down quickly, just leave the page in and write it.

    ReplyDelete
  72. You could use your smaller one as a sort of daily diary to write down positive things, food and exercise, or something that happened that you want to remember =)

  74. I had an Erin Condren one last year which I LOVED! This year I bought a similar style one from Etsy, which is really nice, but I just don't love it as much as I loved my Erin Condren one.

    I've never heard of kikki.K before but the little water intake stickers are SUCH a good idea!!

  75. Glitter hearts planners or glitter hearts organization! I love the erin condren life planners and have been using them for 4 years!

  76. Hi Elle!

    Do you have any name ideas for my planner series?
    No, I'm not very creative :(

    Do you have any ideas for what I can use my little LV planner for since I'm going to be using my big Erin Condren one too?
    Put envelopes in it and use it for traveling sticker storage, it's too pretty to leave home.

    For current planner and sticker addicts: Do you have any favorite Instagram pages or Etsy stores I must check out?
    https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/RosieRyeAccessories - Jennifer McFarland is great to work with!

    Would you be interested in seeing things like sticker hauls? (LOL!)
    Ummm YES!!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. God, I just live for planner posts and videos, even if I completely fail at using them myself. Maybe you could post something about that? Like what in your life has changed or benefitted from having the planner. Orrr maybe something about how to use the decorations effectively so they are both cute and helpful! I would really really love to be a planner person. It might inspire me to do things that require planning!

    ReplyDelete
  78. For the LA planner, like someone mentioned having ticket stubs and making it a mini scrapbook would be cute. You could also use it as a place to keep shopping lists, idea lists for blogs and videos, things like that.

    I am all about some sticker hauls, and pens too. I have been using a planner since the mid 90s, I had a 5star for Jr high that was way before its time being decorated and color coordinated. I prefer the ones with rings so I can full on personalize them, but the 6ring ones.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I love my 3 ring planner because I can take out pages, add pages, and move thing around easily. It is really easy to find free printables to add to the three ring planners. I am left-handed, so I take the right side pages OUT of the rings to write on them. Less frustration that way. :D

    ReplyDelete
  80. I would be interested in sticker haul <3 Is a cute idea.
    maybe you can use the planner for lists. Like list of things to buy for example.
    or Use it as a gratitude diary. Write one thing you are grateful about each day.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'm so happy you've fallen back in love with planner decorating! I follow countless instagram accounts so I can swoon over their awesome layouts!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I would use the LV planner to jot down last minute things, whether in your purse once you are out and about more, or maybe by your bedside for sleep tracking. Thanks so much for this post!

  83. My planner is my life, I would be truly lost without it!

  85. I do love my moleskine agenda, it's very practical and slim, i can put it everywhere! Erin Condren is absolutely stunning though :)

  86. I love the Erin Condren planners but sadly they are out of my budget, especially with the international postage cost.
    I love my Kikki-K diary though. I didn't get the one with the rings though.
    I would love to see sticker hauls hehe =)

    ReplyDelete
  87. I have been debating over going back to a planner instead of using my iPhone and gmail calendars online. I was also really into planners in college!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Maybe you can use the LV one to store your stickers. Or use it as a little scrapbook. :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. I would like to see a planner and stickers haul. Thank You! :)

  90. Ever since you started talking about planners on Twitter my obsession with them has grown. I am a planner addict but I had no idea that there was this huge community of planner decorating. I have been thinking about getting an Erin Condren because of the great reviews and all of the research I've done plus I've just graduated from college and I will be starting my big girl job soon and I think that an Erin Condren planner will fit my needs better. I am currently loving the AlexStudio and MyQueenBeeDesigns. Their stickers are so cute. I am also going to have to buy some of those Booga stickers you tweeted about because elephants are my favorite. I would love to see a sticker haul! It makes me excited just thinking about it.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Ahh! I literally just posted about my organizers for 2015 yesterday.

    As far as your LV planner goes— you could use it as a diary/journal. I am the complete opposite. I have my Filofax, which I’m using for my every day planner since it’s portable and can easily fit into my purse. I use my larger planner (from Target, but it’s the same size in dimension as the Erin Condren) that I use as a Project 365 kind of deal. I write things I’m thankful for every day and include pictures and any paper memorabilia that I could glue to the pages. I don’t have any favorite online sticker/planner stores. I’m so traditional— I love collecting them from stores, especially from Korean stores around my area. They always have THE CUTEST stationary and stickers.

  93. I love your planner! One of my goals for 2015 was to be more organized and to manage my time better. Keeping a written planner helps me out so much because I remember things better when I write them out. Plus color coordinating is a great way to help me keep things neat. As a college student that helps me because I can color coordinate my classes, cheerleading schedule and they events. I can wait to see more planning and organizing tips from you!! Especially on planner decorating!

  94. Love the foil planners! I think you could use your LV planner for tracking fitness!

  95. You should do a new video on your agenda. And you can do it from bed too, so you don't have to get up. :)

  96. I enjoy planner organization/ haul videos and blog posts. I would def watch your sticker haul. You're never too old for stickers. :)

  99. I'm so obsessed with my Lilly planner that I spend hours organizing it, especially for the new semester. I love going on Etsy for my stickers, (my favorites are MareBearCrafts and PlannerCandy). Seriously, my planner is the best thing to happen to my college career.
    An idea for a title could be Organized Chaos with Elle.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I have been following your tweets about your planner obsession, and now I'm obsessed too! I have a brand new Day Designer but now I really want an Erin Condren planner too!!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I will use the lv planner as a fit planner where I will keep track of the days I exerciae , water intake, and food log. I can't wait for your planner series. Xo

    ReplyDelete
  102. Loving everything filofax it planner related! Just recently got my pocket size paperchase organiser but have been dreaming bout Erin Condren one in ages!!! :))

    ReplyDelete
  103. I love planner videos and sticker hauls. That is probably because of my own planner obsession. Sticker hauls would be really cool because not all stores in different towns have the same thing and it is fun to see what stores in different towns or states have. Also you could use the LV planner to keep memorabilia from that day on. That is what I do in my school planner after the week is done and I no longer need to see the week at a glance. I just washie whatever it is in my planner like a flap so that I can still come back and look at it if I need to at some point.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I'm getting married this year and a new planner is exactly what I need to keep everything organized!

  105. Hi Elle! I would love sticker haul videos!!! I'm completing a Wreck this Journal and need ideas! Those Booga stickers you ordered on Etsy are beautiful btw. Get well soon!

    ReplyDelete
  106. you could use the little lv planner as a meal planner or for grocery lists. or to track your fitness/workouts. of course after your recovery, or even for tracking your recovery, or taking medicine.
    you could also use it as a diary for your insomnia.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Hahaha I'm so glad that you found a new obsession :) I am also like that: when I obsess over something, I immediatly act on it :)
    Answers to your questions:
    Do you have any name ideas for my planner series?
    Hmm, maybe Glitzy Plan, or Plan with Elle (I'm sorry, I'm not that creative :p)
    Do you have any ideas for what I can use my little LV planner for since I'm going to be using my big Erin Condren one too?
    Maybe you can use the LV one only for meetings with friends, dates, ... (personal) and the life planner you can use for work meetings, youtube planning, blog planning, chores, ... (work)
    For current planner and sticker addicts: Do you have any favorite Instagram pages or Etsy stores I must check out?
    Sorry, I looooove stickers and planning, but I never really thought of buying it via Etsy stores until you said something about it ;)
    Would you be interested in seeing things like sticker hauls? (LOL!)
    Yes, yes, yes!!!
    Hope you feel better soon Elle with your back!! <3

  110. My suggestion for the LV planner would be to use it as a mini scrapbook of sorts, and maybe slot/paste in little tokens like movie stubs, mini photos, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I'm so glad you have been to blog again! I would love to see sticker hauls, life planner organization and more all on your YouTube!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Hi Elle,

    For names I think you could go with organizing glitter (what a task!), glitter planning, glitter organization, or iheartplanning.

    I really think you should do a sticker and accessories haul! I love school supplies!!! :-)

    Lastly, I think you could use your LV planner for daily things like meals, dates, lists? I would make the LV more daily and the Erin Conderen Planner more work related, but with some fun stuff included!

    P.S. I love those pens also, they are perfect for me because while I love color coding my planner, I am also going to school to become a teacher. This upcoming semester I am student teaching and they are so helpful for grading!

    P.S.S. You are such an inspiration. I really love your videos and blogs! You do such a fantastic job! Feel better soon!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Just wanted to tell you: Because of you I started an Agenda this year and I love to be organized now ;) Thank you Elle for beeing an inspiration :*

  114. I completely understand this obsession with planners, I suffer from it too! I own a Filofax but this year I am using one from a Spanish company called Mr. Wonderful, I wish you could check them out! I would love to see a sticker/ planner video from you :) x

  115. The EC planner is perfect for me because I am sight impaired. I can decorate it to my taste and have enough space to write out what I need that is big enough.

  119. Hi Elle! You need to go to Target and get these Large paper clips I have. They are for planner decor purposes and made by a designer Nathan (forget his last name) SO CUTE! They come in Silver and Gold :)

    ReplyDelete
  120. Sticker hauls would be so fun! I'm trying desperately to get into a routine of using a planner because I know it would be so helpful for school. I'm halfway through my first year of college, and with extra curriculars and school work and a job it gets hard to keep everything balanced and organized in my head. I have a cheap Walgreens planner right now but hopefully these videos will inspire me a little more.

  122. I think I would just keep the LV planner as decor because it's extremely expensive and if you don't like writing in it, there's no point forcing yourself to use it just to say you use it. I would also like to see sticker hauls but as a blog post. I think a video about stickers would seem mundane and unnecessary

    ReplyDelete
  123. I purchased an Erin Condren life planner last night using your referral link. Thanks for the $10 off! One of my goals for this year is to be more organized and productive and I think starting to use a planner again will really help. I loved my planner in university, but I haven't really used one since. I can't wait to get my planner!

    I think for your LV planner, you should use it as a scrapbook style diary. Decorating the pages won't hurt your hand the way writing on them does.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Hi Elle! It's so nice to see you're planner & stationery obsessed! ๐Ÿ˜œ

    I'd love it if you check out my etsy store.

    I make custom stickers for planners as well as dashboards and dividers. I also put together planner kits

  132. I love that you love planners! I was worried that after college I would no longer use one but I have found reasons in my job to still use a cute planner :) I do have to fight the urge in Target to not buy a new one every time... They are all just too cute!

  134. I found you via one of the ECLP groups on FB. Adorable blog, and I'm also newly sticker obsessed again.

  135. OMG i am so happy you wrote this blog post because i too had a planner obsession that dwindled and just came back this year! I wanted to buy an Erin Condren planner but they're a bit too expensive for my current budget so i found this Etsy shop called Plum Paper Designs (perhaps you'd like to check them out) that sells beautiful customizable monogramable planners for a more affordable price. But I would love to win the contest so that i can get the EC planner that i originally wanted. Even though its not an EC i CANNOT wait for it to ship so that i can plan and glitterfy, washi tapify, and color codify my life away LOL I would love to see videos where you show us how you organize your planner and show us your stickers and supplies, i think it would be super cute and fun! Oh and maybe you could use your LV planner as a meal/exercise/fitness planner.
    I love you Elle<3

    ReplyDelete
  136. So excited that you are back blogging again! I have been lusting after the Erin Condren planners for quite some time! For a series what about #planningwithelle :) You could use the LV planner for blog post and youtube ideas. I keep a separate agenda for all my ideas and it helps to keep me more organized! xoxo

  137. My boyfriend got me a planner for Christmas. It's smaller but in ways similar. Planners in Estonia are so boring and look exactly the same so I had him order something The Daily Log small planner. Now that I've seen a few planner videos I wish I had a bigger one too. One would fit into my bag and I'd carry it around and the other one would be all prettied up and stay at home (:

    ReplyDelete
  138. I don't think my last comment went through :(

    But I am also a planner addict! Last year I had the ECLP and I was obsessed!! But this year I switched to one from https://www.etsy.com/shop/PlumPaperDesigns and I am currently not to patiently waiting for it to arrive! Their planners have the same gereal layout as the Life Planners, which I love, But instead of the columns just saying "morning, afternoon, evening" you can customize them to say whatever you want ex. "work, blog, youtube" etc. You can also customize more of what is actually inside the planner itself. I added a blog planning section and some more blank notes pages! I think you should definitely check it out Elle, I think you would LOVE it!! and I would love to hear your thoughts comparing the two :)

    P.S YASS to sticker and planner related hauls!!

  139. You made me think about my childhood collecting and trading stickers. I was so obsessed with my sticker albums. I became a planner in college (many years ago) and it really is the best way to stay organized. Like you, I prefer planners that are like student planners. On ideas for what to call this I recommend "The Daily Glitter with Elle" or "The Weekly Glitter" depending on how often you plan to blog. Just an idea and cannot wait to watch! -Sherrell (sherrell.breas@gmail.com)

  140. I love a good planner, but find that if they aren't easy to use, I don't use them. I couldn't find the right one for me so I ended up making mine and put in a three ring binder. It is bigger than I would like, but I want to get all of the pages that I want/use frequently right before I buy something more expensive.

    ReplyDelete
  141. It would be great if you did a sticker haul/ decorating ideas video!

  142. I would use your LV planner as a scrapbook of your favourite things/maybe as a journal if you change the inserts :)

  146. I would LOVE to see sticker hauls! :) When I was in college, I was planner obsessed. I had everything SO organized. Now that I'm not in college, I don't have a planner anymore, but I think if I did, my life would be a lot more organized. My husband and I are planning on moving this year, and a planner would be so helpful with making sure all the house things are kept organized! I like the name that Allison Joy came up with- Glitterizing! :-)

  147. So I have a filofax pocket planner right now, but I never really liked it, now i know why - it's hurting my hand! I then took a look at the Erin Condren planner, and while they are BEAUTIFUL, they are way too expensive for me :( I have then searched the web for a planner with the same monthly overview page because it's very practical and nice, but I couldn't find any. Does any of you guys have a planner with the same kind of monthly overview? Let me know! :)

  148. Elle, I just wanted to express how excited I am for this series! I'm in a similar position as you, I'm not allowed to leave my bed for an indefinite amount of time due to recent surgery. I've always been kind of an organizational addict and I've watched all you agenda and stationary videos like a million times. Seeing you get re-obsessed with your agenda and pretty-fying it has gotten me re-obsessed with my agenda, even though I have nothing to schedule for a while.

    I would LOVE to see sticker hauls and stuff like that!! Maybe you could use your LV planner for blogging/video schedules? Or for errands/shopping planning… I have a little notebook I use to schedule which errands I am doing what day and what I need to get, or you could use it for cleaning schedule? (Might work better when your back is healed lol). I love planners and have had a planner obsession for years and so glad to see someone shares my passion :) xoxo

  158. I think my original comment deleted when I signed into google, so apologies if this is a repeat! I have an Erin Condren planner, but I also have an Erin Condren notebook. I love it. I actually got the notebook first! What I use it for is project planning, I call it my goals journal. Currently I have a few goals, big and small, both personal and business related, that I am working on. The big one is my website. So I brainstorm ideas, take notes from meetings with website people, etc. Its awesome! I feel like its an extension of my planner which is really more of a point form focus on tasks. You would probably really like a notebook like that too :)

  162. hey :) the planner is so pretty ... i really like gold ... in France we don't have planner we have small agenda ... i think a planner could help me organise my life better hahaha i will look it up ^^for the small planner you can use to keep track of importants things : like meeting, emergency number, bills ... or your meal and grocery shopping , books list ... things that you want to carry everywhere sometime a regular planner is maybe too big to carry everywhere

    Do you have any ideas for what I can use my little LV planner for since I'm going to be using my big Erin Condren one too? I would use the LV planner as a "to go" planner & only write things I need to know when I'm away from the house... Bonus - it has slots for credit cards, so no wallet is needed!
    For current planner and sticker addicts: Do you have any favorite Instagram pages or Etsy stores I must check out? My favorite instagram for planner pages is @lindseyplans - it's so cute!

  170. I am slightly obsessed with planners as well! They help so much in keeping organized, especially when you're always doing something new. I really enjoy Organized Like Jen's planner videos, she does some great comparisons (including talking about the Kikki-K planner) and she's extremely thorough. If you haven't checked her out yet you definitely should!

    As for some of your questions:
    I would absolutely love to see sticker hauls. I find hauls fun, not necessarily for seeing what I would like to buy (although that is good too), but just the excitement of the person doing the haul. Whenever I go shopping and see my mom right after (more so when I lived at home, but sometimes where we're traveling still) and she says "Show me your wares" and we go through each thing I bought, it brings about the excitement of shopping all over again!
    You could use your LV planner for projects with timelines. You can include these in your regular planner, sure, but if they have their own planner you can break it down even more and you don't have to worry about fitting in other daily life type things as well. Also, if the rings hurt you, you could always remove the page to write on it and then replace it when you're done. Not so convenient for an everyday planner, but if you're using it specifically for projects you're most likely getting down to business and actually planning, so you don't need to be writing something down super speedily.
    I don't have a specific recommendation for your planner series name, but something to keep in mind is that you should make sure there is a word in it that definitely let's people know that you're talking about time management and/or planners, just so that people who aren't subscribed can come across it more easily and fall in love with you and your content too!

  171. I think you could use the LV planner as a little quick planner that you add the most important "to-do's" into after looking at your Erin Condren one, to use throughout the day when you are out! Also, I would love to see sticker hauls lol! :)

  172. How about "Glitterization" as a name for the series? Like glitter+organization smashed together? My mom and I are all about the planners, so I'm excited for this series. Stickers were also my first obsession. I would spend all of my allowance on going to the skating rink and buying tons of those 50 cent big stickers. All of my friends would spend money on candy and soda while I drank from the water fountain so I could spend more money on stickers. I kept them in a photo album and traded with other like-minded sticker enthusiasts. : )

  174. I have never been a planner user but this post makes me want to get into it. :) I would like to see sticker hauls, and i really like organization posts and videos.

  175. Yay! I stumbled across you originally for makeup and now it seems we've come full circle again in our hobbies ;)

    I have only binders with rings so far because I need to be able to personalize EVERYTHING. I like being able to customize, remove things that aren't relevant, tidy up, add new sections or inserts, and have complete control over my whole planner system. I have a few kikki k's because they're gorgeous and functional and motivate me to get stuff done.

    I would love to see things such as sticker hauls!

    I use my smallest planner as a wallet by inserting top loading pockets and business card holder sheets and zip pockets :)

  176. Wow! I thought I was slightly addicted with just my Target Planner, G2 Pens, and a few rolls of Washi Tape! Your tweets and posts are bound to take the obsession to a whole other level! So tempted to get an Erin Condran planner, since I am starting college soon! It would probably be so worth it! Decisions! Thanks Elle! <3

  178. Love this! No matter how busy I am, I always make time to write in my planner. And now I have the urge to buy some washi tape :)
    Maybe you can use your LV planner to write your daily goals? I used to write daily goals first thing in the morning, and it always helped me stay motivated. Feel better!

  179. You could use your LV for a fitness tracker/journal, for blog planning, as a gratitude journal or as a "high level" planner (monthly inserts with appointments and then addresses and stuff behind that).

  180. I bloody love organising, colour coding, timetables, schedules etc
    I would absolutely adore an Erin Condren life planner, but they are too expensive for me right now!

  182. I have wanted a Erin Condren planner for so long now but could never justify spending that type of money on one because I never stick to planners. Also I love how you decorate and color code yours, it's super cute!

  183. I have an Erin Condren planner that I absolutely love! I use it to keep track of all the fun activities and trips I have with my son. I like to write down quotes I randomly come across as well to look back on for inspiration if I need it. I also got colored pens just for my planner to keep everything organized and color coded. One of the best purchases I have made!!

  184. Oh my gosh I have a sticker obsession too! Only I new know what to do with mine so I never end up using them and I just have a ton. I love planners too and I am so so picky about the kind I get. I need lots of room to write things. The only thing is I typically don't use them during the summer, so I really only need them during the school year and most of the planners I like (these for example) are for the whole year of 2015, instead of the 2015-2016 school year.
