Little Joys: Planning

This is the first post of my new Sunday series! I’ll be blogging about the little things in life that bring me joy and brighten my day.

Is it just me, or have planners totally exploded in popularity over the last couple of years? It certainly seems to be a pretty hot topic at the moment.

So without further ado, here are my May favourites!

I love things. I really, really do. I always feel euphoric when I rip into the packaging of a long-coveted purchase. It is a rush of blood to the head and it feels really, really good. I am a consumer, and you are a consumer, and Isla Fischer is a consumer (at least in her movie ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’). And we do it because it feels good.
