Some Women Go for Gucci, I <3 Erin Condren

With today’s launch of the 2019-2020 life planner by Erin Condren, I thought it would be fun to take a look at my obsession collection of EC accessories for the life planner from over the years. I first heard about Erin Condren back in 2014, when their 2014-2015 “Party Pops” planner cover was launched. I immediately fell head over heels for the fun, bold colors, confetti-full cover, vellum overleaf page, and vertical layout. In 2015, I got my first life planner and it was okay. It seemed like just another in a latest of phases as I moved from one agenda calendar system to the next (remember my Filofax phase, anyone?). But it wasn’t until the release of the 2015-2016 life planner, with its newest option, rose gold foil, coils, and metallic covers, that I fell hard. That rose gold, hitting at a time when it was just starting to rise in popularity (but had always been a favorite of mine), it was irresistible. There was no going back. I was going to commit to …

Erin Condren Accessories, Part 2: The Unboxing

THEY’RE HERE!!! Yes, my first-ever order of EC accessories arrived — earlier than expected which was a great surprise.  That purple mailer may soon grow to be one of my favorite sights in my mailbox. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with the package itself but as I did the unveiling I found a bunch of bonuses I hadn’t ordered, way cool! There were two stickers with inspirational quotes in Erin’s festive colors, a coupon code for $10.00 off my next order, and a sample pack of their gift label collection, personalized with my name.  Plaids and paisleys are my faves. 🙂  Thanks Erin! The pen holders are really simple. It’s a peel and stick design with a transparent backing so it doesn’t interfere with your notebook or journal’s design. I stuck mine on the inside back cover my Punctuate (B&N) journal and it’s good and tight on there. It fits most pens but my Pilot Precise V5 (extra fine) rollerball pens are too thick for the elastic. Your standard ballpoint is thinner and should …

Erin Condren Accessories

Recently I received a “$10 off your first order” offer for ErinCondren.com so today I thought I would talk about some of the accessories Erin offers to accompany her Life Planner system, and what I’ve purchased. First off, I should clarify that I actually use an A5 Filofax Original which I’m still trying to settle into and I’ve blogged a bit about. Checking out Erin’s website, a lot of her products look to be compatible with what I am using and I love branching out and trying new products. For my first order, I picked up a couple of penholders (img) that I thought would be perfect for attaching to my journal (Punctuate! by Barnes & Noble) and my spiral-bound 2015 planner. I browsed Office Max this weekend and they do have some comparable buys for the elastic bands for your journal, planner, Life Planner, or Filofax, but honestly, zebra stripes and a shocking pink just don’t do it for me. So I picked up a set of elastic bands in coral, teal and a silver glitter (img) that are …
