What springs to mind when you think about the month of September? For me, September was always the start of new beginnings - more so than the New Year was. It was the start of a new academic year, time to get focused, to organise myself, to start the year as I wanted it to continue (although, it never did. By Christmas I'd be totally unorganised). I used to make promises to myself to make sure I got up to have breakfast every morning, to organise my things the night before, to lay out what I was going to wear to make sure it matched... But my favourite part? Purchasing new stationary! Oh my word! I love everything about stationary! Fresh new note pads, fancy pens with ink that glides onto a page, stickers! YES! I remember a teacher once saying to me "If you fail to prepare, you'd better prepare to fail". So I was always well equipped!

This September was a sad September... The first year I didn't NEED to buy new stationary - I'm not at school/college/university anymore, and I'm not teaching at the moment (still on Maternity Leave <3). Fear not! I decided I'd just go sliiiiiightly over board in purchasing my new *Erin Condren Life Planner. Yeah, that's right - I can plan my (not so busy but still pleasant) life in my totally customisable planner!

I'll insert some pretty pictures below to show you the awesomeness that is an *ECLP. For those who share my joy of stationary... Erin Condren is perfect!
