TPJ Reviews: Paponei’s Gifts January Kit #NauticalKit

January 27, 2016
It was my first time to register to a planner kit and I can’t be happier because of what Paponei’s Gifts offered for this month!
I got this January Nautical Kit from them and I got really giddy when I opened it. I loved that it had a lot of useful things not only for my planner, but for other general things as well. I saw the sneak peek photos and the actual teaser of the kit but it just couldn’t compare to having them all in front of me.
So what’s inside the January Kit?

This cute stickers! I honestly wanted more but it was more than enough to design one weekly spread. I still have a few of the stickers and I’m going to use them again in another month probably.

1 sticker set
I used the dashboard from them already and I loved that it matches the color of my planner. I slid in the bookmarks and the tassel to beautify my planner furtherly. The kit also came with this cute magnet I have yet to use somewhere in my room!
1 handmade tassel 1 dashboard card
I’m saving up this greeting card for a special occasion in the near future. I don’t want to let it go to waste so I’m keeping it.
1 Greeting Card
I used the other one in the middle of my planner, the other one I gave out to one of the winners of my giveaway in my main blog and she also liked it a lot! Aside from being a paper junkie, I remember owning a LOOOT of bookmarks back in grade school and high school even if I didn’t really use them all to serve a bookmark’s purpose.
7 pieces bookmarks
I already have my own planners and so I was wondering what I could do with this mini planner. I don’t want to let it go to waste so it became my “first draft planner”. Whatever was supposed to happen in the next days, I jot it down here first before transferring it to my Phasma (Webster’s Pages Color Crush Planner – Personal). Makes my personal planner cleaner.
1 mini planner
I practically used all of them when I got them. I inserted a few already to the pages that I’m constantly writing on my planner. At least I won’t be having a hard time flipping through my customized inserts just to reach the page they are on.
1 bottle of paper clips (around 15 pieces)
I used one of the wooden charms as a bling inside my planner. I inserted a paper clip into the hole and placed it in the middle, just to mark my current week. The eraser, however, I still don’t want to use! Haha.
1 anchor eraser and 4 wooden charms
Since I’m already using my Padme (Filofax Saffianno Gold – Pocket) as my wallet with all my cards there, I’m going to use this as an album for my Instax photos. I love the design of this so there’s no way I’m giving it away! 
1 card holder
The anchor plus I have sits beside my other Star Wars plushies at home. It actually looks like the Rebel Alliance logo and I love that it does.
1 anchor plush
The kit came in with one mini notebook while the other one was a freebie from Paponei’s Gifts (so generous of them). I’m using the blue one as a brain dump of my ideas for my main blog. Once I consume all the pages of it, then I’ll be using the next one for the same purpose.
1 mini notebook
Last but not the least, this cute red pen! I already used it last weekend to jot down things I still needed for my Padme and Phasma. The Filofax pocket inserts are not incuded in the kit, btw! 

1 pen
So how did I use these lovely stuff from the planner kit? Voila. My last week of January spread before the pen!
I got this kit for P590 for January. The price of a monthly kit is now at P640 (BUT MADE EVEN BETTER!!!), P1800 for 3 months, P3550 for 6 months +1 free, P7000 for 12 months + 2 free! Transactions with them are fast and they always reply immediately so no problem about having your questions answered.
So if you’re interested to get the February Kit (well I know I am), you can head on over to their Instagram account and viber them to order! Here’s the teaser of the February kit:

That’s it! I’ll be posting next month about the above kit!!!

On being a Planner Novice

January 13, 2016
I don’t really know how to start with this blog. I would really like to go away with the usual introduction of myself because I’m going to put that on the About Me section of my blog (which is still under construction, like the rest of this blog is). 
All I just wanted to get out there is the fact that I’m a Planner Novice. I started buying planners in 2012 but this year is the first time I’m using a ringed planner as a personal planner.
I own a Webster’s Pages Color Crush Planner in Sky, and I bought it from Scribe Writing Essentials in Eastwood Mall. I named her Phasma (because of Captain Phasma in Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens) and I am loving her more everyday.
I only have a few stickers and I plan to buy more decorating stuff in the next few months and weeks. I’ll be chronicling here in this blog whatever I’m up to with planning and other paper stuff, and also give out free printables once in a while!
You might wonder why I decided to create a separate blog for this new-found hobby. I don’t want to flood my main blog with planning stuff and progress. I just want to keep it that way for now. Well, wish me luck in this journey!
