Old English Company Haul *

Old English Company Planner and Weekly Planner

If you ask pretty much anyone I know, they'll tell you that I am the worst for remembering anything. I have two diaries, and I still struggle to remember when my next doctor appointment is, or when I have dinner booked with a friend. When Old English Company got in touch to ask if I wanted to pick a few bits from their website, I jumped at the chance, because I fucking love cute stationery, and having somewhere to try and plan my days.

Old English Company Haul

The first thing I picked out from the Old English Company was a Charcoal Grey and Gold A5 Planner. The pages are not dated, with loads of room for my lengthy to-do lists. The fact that this is not dated works quite well for me, because even though I have the purest of intentions, I never ever keep totally organised and end up wasting most of the planner throughout the year. I needed a planner for scheduling blog content, and this seemed like a great fit.

Although I do like this planner, I'd personally prefer if it was a bit more hardwearing. It's only a paperback book, and most of my diaries go through the wars and get really dirty of ripped easily. Maybe this is an 'in the house' planner for me.

I also picked up this Weekly Agenda Desk Planner. I love using things like this to plan on my mundane weekly tasks, like cleaning, shopping, or work shifts, alongside any deadlines I have. I find it easier to deal with if I can see my week right in front of me, and I like keeping these kinds of things separate to my blog work. It has 52 sheets, so for £7.95 you definitely get your money's worth.

Pretty Prints

We live in a rented flat, and although we've been here for nearly four years, we haven't done too much with the decoration. We're hoping to buy a house soon, and I am determined to make it a home. One way I plan on doing this is planning a gallery wall in our future (currently imaginary) living room. I'm starting to collect prints to feature, and I picked two out from Old English Company to take centre stage!

The first is the What Greater Gift Than That of a Cat print, and I wanted to give this as a gift to Dave. He and our cat Cleo absolutely adore each other, and I am the side chick in this relationship. The second is a Wuthering Heights print. I'm a romantic at heart, and I enjoyed studying Wuthering Heights at University, so this seemed fitting.

I can't wait to finally get these prints up and to get cracking on using my planners (and maybe finally sort my life out? Probably not). Old English Company also has a wide selection of enamel pins, mugs, and even oven mitts. If you're struggling to find a birthday, anniversary, or a 'just because' gift, they've probably got something perfect for you.

  1. Oh my gosh I *need* to get my hands on that print. I love Wuthering Heights! I'd never heard of Old English Company but I do appreciate a little bit of stationary so will definitely be heading over to the website to take a little look.

  2. Undated planners are my favourite, especially as I always seem to fail starting a new one in January! Shame it's not a hardback one but it would make a pretty stay-at-home desk planner!
