2016/2017 CLASSIC HAPPY PLANNER - PEONY [FLIP THROUGH & FIRST IMPRESSION]


Happy Monday, Planner People!

I did the bad, again! I purchased yet another Happy Planner from Me and my BIG Ideas. This time, my order was a little different, though. For all of you who do not know, the Peony happy planner is not available at Michael's stores--meaning that they are not available in stores Canada wide. Instead, I purchased this planner through Blitsy. I've heard a lot of bad things about Blitsy in the past, but in this one experience, I received my order in less than a week, despite me living in Canada. Phenomenal!

Anyways, here's the planner and my first thoughts:


First of all, how beautiful is this cover? It says "Just Be Happy" and displays a beautiful pink and white bouquet of peonies! Absolutely gorgeous! I love peony stationery! Whether it be notebooks, magnetic bookmarks, notepads, or this planner cover--I am absolutely in love! I also love the translucent pink rings! They match perfectly!


The inside cover is just a simple black and white polka dot pattern that I feel compliments the pink perfectly to create a classy style. The "This Planner Belongs To" page is very simple but elegant, as well. Just one single peony on a white page, but absolutely so gorgeous, still!


The year at a glance pages are simple but gorgeous, as well! I love the font for the months. Also, how cute is that peony accent for each year?!


The "This Month" page is pretty generic to all of the other planners. It has three months (past month, previous month and future month) a goals, section, a currently section, a gratitude section and a birthdays/important dates section. Still very simple but pretty. 

Nevertheless, I'm not super in love with the monthly divider art. This one has quotes and patterns--which in no way are ugly--but not really my style. 


One of the special things about this planner are the peonies on the corners of each Month At A Glance section. While this is absolutely beautiful, I feel like, as someone who uses a lot of stickers, this would ruin my spread or get in the way.


The weekly views are very simple black and white with pops of color in the month in the sidebar and the days of the week. Again, while it is super simple to be classy, I feel like this would get in the way of my planning.

One of the things I do like, though, is that they took out the headers for the three sections. You do not know how much I've struggled to re-arrange my spreads to cover the header boxes, especially if I am not using stickers that aren't necessarily sized for The Happy Planner.



















The monthly dividers are super cute for those who love lots of pink girly chic. Personally, it isn't my cup of tea but I can see anyone who loves the Kate Spade brand or anything Kate Spade inspired to love this planner.

While the inside isn't really for me, I'm probably going to end up using this cover on one of the planners I do like the insides of, to make "The Perfect Planner" for me!

What are your thoughts on this planner? Love it? Hate it? I'd love to hear down below.

  1. First of all, you're crazy!! But secondly, I can't blame you haha! This is way too cute. I love the little 'I'm grateful for' section at the monthly dividers. My Happy Planner doesn't have that:( The whole thing looks very simple but chic!
