I love nothing more than for my life to be organised, and I know how difficult it can be. I believe that personalisation is the key to motivate people to use the organisation tools. Mental health and wellbeing are greatly linked to organisation, whether it be your home, your hand bag/backpack, or your daily activities. The aim of my business is to personalise this, triggering endorphins and other happiness hormones when you see how organised and still completely individual you are.
The main products will be the journals, notebooks and planners. All books will be disc bound so that you can change the order the pages go in, add more pages, remove pages. There are many layouts for the planners and journals, from bullet to notebook to standard planner, and of course we all know there are multiple planner styles.
The planners will come undated so you can start anytime of year, if you prefer you can buy date, year and month stickers for your planner, if you don’t like what’s available, let me know what you like for custom designed stickers and pages.
Please see pictures of the planner pages:
As I said, organisation is good for mental health and well-being. The bag is often a stress trigger, nothing can ever be found, I have purchased bag organisers in the past but they are just not good enough. I love using packing cubes when going on holiday, so why not bring the same logic to your everyday bag. Each pouch is identifiable and split into categories; electronic, cosmetic, stationery, mini, and miscellaneous. The pouches are faux leather and cloth (options of mono fabric or mixed) when more widely available I will be using piñatex.
Stickers and planner accessories will also be available, there will be beautiful charms, bookmarks, and attachable pencil cases.
In the future I look to create a subscription box, in the box will be stickers, accessories, tea of the month, healthy snack recipes with ingredients for two servings supplied.
