I'm one of those people who has good intentions of starting and keeping a dairy throughout the year, however a month into using it, I just forget about it. Towards the end of 2015, I was getting really stressed out and somewhat breaking down. I spoke to a therapist who said it may be down to the fact that I'm not very organised. A couple of years ago, I was literally the most organised person you could ever meet, however recently not so much. I decided to invest in a diary and make a proper effort to use it, in the hope that I can manage my time better and in theory become less stressed.
The diary I decided to purchase is one from Ban.Do which is a brand I've not heard much about, but I took a liking to this diary. It's a beautiful white and gold 18 month diary with golden accents. This diary in question is a really quirky diary consisting with stickers and motivational quotes for each month. One thing I really like about this diary is that is has tabs for each month. My Ban.Do diary has a 2015 and 2016 annual overview as well as a dates to celebrate and holidays section. 
I've dedicated the monthly overview which is situated prior to the weekly overview to all of my planned blog posts. I decided to use post-it notes to slot in potential blog posts because I hate when things are crossed out. When the post has been scheduled and finalised, I then write it in properly. I use the weekly overview for personal things such as driving lessons, interviews, appointments and deadlines etc.

  1. This looks like such a pretty diary, it's so hard to find one I like in the UK. I definitely need to be more organised with my life!
