REVIEW: Belle de Jour 2012 Planner

I was a happy-go-lucky-anything-goes type of a person and I won't say that it was fine, it was chaotic!!! But I guess we grow matured as we age (???). hahaha! I'm now a mom to a 3 month-old baby and I can never be a chaotic person as I was,so I figured I should ditch the "old me" and say "hello" to a more organized "me". I have a hope that a planner would help me achieve my goal.

I have these reasons for getting a planner:

  • I seemed to be born with an amnesia.
  • I need to keep track of my activities especially pertaining to Saehee ( doctor's appointment, immunization schedules, things that she needs etc.)
  • Record the bills and other payments' deadlines.
  • Remembering birthdays, special events, meetings, get-aways etc.

 As I stroll the malls in Iloilo City, I was so unsatisfied with the planners that are for sale. Plain, boring, monotonous....sooooooooo not my type!!! Then I came across with the hype that's been on the online community regarding this "planner for the kikays". It took me a while to order though. I don't know why. ^__^

I finally got my hands on the most-raved about planner in the online community particularly in the Philippines. Taran!!!! Belle de Jour Planner!!!

Product Description:

Our Power Planner is about empowering women to live out the Belle de Jour or “IT Girl” lifestyle.

My verdict:

This is definitely the perfect planner for me! I love how colorful it is, the inspirational stuff that can be found inside and the completeness of the content.

I recommend this to every woman; this would definitely make our lives easier and more organized. 

I would like to thank the online seller from which I purchased this baby, Ms. Maria Ernani Tongga of ThePinkShoppe (they ship internationally). A very reliable and patient seller! I've been flooding her Facebook with messages with regards to my order and she gladly accommodated every single one. hehehe!
