Belle De Jour 2015 Power Planner review

Product: Belle de Jour Power Planner 2015
Price: Php 598 for the regular design (for more information, click here)

Today, we welcome the start of 2015, a new year--which means new chances, opportunities, and goals. With all that in mind, it really helps to start your year with a planner to guide and remind you of all the things you want to achieve in all aspects of your life. That's why today, I will start using a planner again...

I've been hearing about Belle De Jour, or simply BDJ planners, but I never really got to know what the hype is all about. Back when I was really into planners, journals, and scrapbook, I always came across that. But since I always aim for minimalist designs for my stuff, I didn't dare check BDJ planners. I actually thought before that it was just an expensive planner, nothing more, nothing less. It's just now that I got to know what really got people buying (and going gaga) over this.

I joined and won this Instagram contest, that's why I got myself a free Belle De Jour Planner. I was actually thinking of buying one since I'd like to be more organized (with all that tasks at the office, I have to) with my life--to plan ahead more, and follow it.

When I finally got my hands on this babe, that's when I thought to myself, "Wow. This is really happening. After years of not having one, here I am. About to embark on a year-long process of planning, and following every single thing I log in that thing called planner".

There probably are a lot, but one of the biggest challenge of owning a planner/journal is updating it--because if time doesn't permit you to write in it, it slowly starts to become a maƱana habit, until such time that you won't be able to log in it anymore (i.e., my 365-Days challenge in Tumblr!!!). Second, is following everything you have planned and scheduled... Because, what's the purpose of having a planner if you don't get to follow everything you meticulously planned for, right?

This time, I really do hope I will be able to complete this planner--despite how busy my schedule can be. Having a planner is somewhat a huge responsibility, you guys. Hehe. Anyway, as a first-time owner here's what I love the most about this planner:
  • Its very girly design! However, I like how the content is not compromised by the "girly design". Inside, it's very functional, and I really love the pastel colors. <3
  • I just found out that you can have a personalized planner with your name on the cover! How cool is that?
  • When you purchase a planner, you automatically get a Belle De Jour Power Planner lifestyle card
  • You're automatically called a "Bella" because you own a Belle De Jour planner! Haha
  • There are stickers inside!!!
  • Most importantly, each planner comes with Php 40,000 worth of coupons!!! I've browsed through it recently, and oh my gosh, the deals are so good! From accommodation to fitness (like gym, yoga, etc), pampering, food, and all that a girl needs! BDJ sure knows what every woman needs and wants. <3

However, if you think that this planner isn't for you, and you really want to have and use a planner but does not want to indulge oneself with coffee or any beverage (Starbucks and Coffee Bean lol), then you might want to try other planners from Belle De Jour.
