My Nan, the most amazing human being I have ever had the pleasure of knowing likes to gift us things that we need or things that will come in handy. I guess that’s a generation thing? She will always make sure that we aren’t in need of anything grandparents do though right? I suppose you could say she is your “cliché” Nan. You will never leave her home hungry – damn, even those that come to repair stuff get offered a hot drink and a biscuit, that’s just who Nan is.
This Christmas, I was lucky enough that my Nan knew I needed things for my blogging as this year I vow to take it more seriously. I knew that I really, really wanted ‘The Ultimate Blog Planner’ by Dot Creates. So with that in mind, I headed over to my Nan’s to help her order it (she isn’t a fan of technology!) I was scrolling through the website because us women we love a good nosey around and I had to make sure that that was what I wanted after all right?
We’d been scrolling through a short while when my Nan stopped and said, “What about the blogger essentials box?” My, oh my. As soon as I saw it I knew that I needed it, I knew that it would also be something that I would struggle to wait until Christmas day for, but I did. I managed it and seeing it in person, it was 100 times better than I could have ever imagined! I love it!
I absolutely love the simplicity of this box! Once I opened the box the contents was nicely wrapped in white tissue paper with a lovely little quote attached to the front.
Inside the box was filled with so many goodies:
- 4 Pencils each with a slogan
- The Ultimate blog planner
- Blog planner notepad
- 2 Sticker sheets
- 4 quote prints
You get all this for £29 which I think is a total bargain considering that the Ultimate blog planner is £12.50 alone! I am absolutely over the moon with this box of goodies and the planner has become nothing but a god send. The notepad sits perfectly by the side of my computer meaning that I have quick access to the posts that I should be writing.
Inside the blog planner there is numerous sections where you are able to write down all the sponsored content, PR email and also tick boxes so you can keep count on when you’ve been paid or the post has gone live. There are also pages where you can plan your next posts, which is always handy! To add to the awesomeness of this book there is also a handful of pages with quotes on that are perfect for those times that you need a bit of a pick-me-up or inspiration. We’ve all been there!
Overall, I really, really love this box and will certainly be making it a yearly order! What better way to start the year than with fresh new stationary?!
