Pirongs – Review & Giveaway

I was delighted to be sent one of these personalised, Unique Planners by Pirongs free of charge for the purpose of this blog post.

I have always been a bit of a stationery addict.  There’s nothing more exciting than a brand new diary, notebook or planner.  It seems to signify a fresh start, a new schedule and exciting times ahead.  Back in January, I bought an A5 diary, thinking it would be big enough to put everything in and keep myself organised.  I was wrong.  So wrong in fact, that I’ve pretty much given up on it now.

And that’s the thing with diaries – you need to find the right one.  For me, that means a huge planner with plenty of space for everything.  I don’t just want to use it for work.  I want to use it for blogging, keeping track of what the children are up to, hospital appointments, planning, to-do lists, contacts and everything in between.  And it needs to look beautiful.  Just like this one.Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveawayThe process of designing a Pirongs planner is really straightforward.  First you decide when you want the planner to start.  I went for August because I don’t want to have to wait until the New Year to get a new diary, I want to start it straight away.

Next, you choose the designs you want for the front and back cover.  I loved the floral pattern on mine, and was quite taken with the fact that I could have my name on the front in any font I wanted.  There were loads of different options for colour and writing, you could even have photos on the covers.

The planner itself is quite standard, with a year at a glance spread, followed by a month at a glance spread, and then into the main diary pages.  There is a weekly goal and checklist section each week, and spaces on each day to write in morning, afternoon, evening and a little to-do list.Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveaway Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveaway Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveawayAt the back of the planner, things start to get exciting.  You can choose from a wide range of topics, to create your own pages.  I went for lists, birthdays and then a huge notes section.  I was even able to choose squared paper for my notes – having lived in France when I was at university, the inability to buy nice notebooks with square paper over here has always annoyed me.  So being able to have squared paper for my notes in here was a real bonus.Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveaway Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveawayAfter my notes section, I went for some contacts pages and a bucket list.  I’ve always loved the idea of having a bucket list, especially after reading the fabulous ones that Stevie at A Cornish Mum and Donna at What the Redhead Said produce on their blogs.Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveaway Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveawayAfter the customised pages, there are month tabs and stickers.  Then I chose to put in some filing pockets.  At the end of my order, I also added a stick-in pen holder, some filing tabs and some really cute washi tape.Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveaway Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveaway Pirongs personalised planner - review, discount code and giveawayIf you would like to get your hands on one of these gorgeous planners, you can use the code PSOX15 at the checkout for a 15% discount.  You can even win one of your own by entering the Rafflecopter giveaway below.

    I would find their notebooks the most useful because I’m always loosing appointment cards & forgetting what I need to do 🙂

  2. emma walters

    their standard sized, week-to-view academic diary would be most useful with both my boys at different schools from sept!

  3. Tracey Hartland

    Ooh I do love a notebook or diary. Any stationery really. I tend to buy a basic week to view diary and then spend a day customising it with highlighted bits and dividing each day up so it works for me in the layout I want.

  4. Tracy Nixon

    I would find their A4 notebooks the most useful because I love to plan out my craft projects by making notes and illustrations and sticking bits of info in notebooks.

  5. Lisa Deller

    A4 Unique Life Planner looks exactly like the thing to help me keep track of my kids busy social lives 🙂

    An A4 notebook – I’m hoping to buy my first home soon so it would be really useful for planning everything involved with it.

  8. Emma Davis

    What an absolutely fantastic prize. With the end of term approaching, I’ve been shopping around for a new diary or planner but haven’t found the perfect one. Like you, I too am a stationery addict. I haven’t committed to buying a new planner yet as I’ve not found one which has everything I’m looking for. This one in your giveaway, however, is amazing – my life would be so much more organised!!

    Hi Natalie, I love these planners! Which seems a little strange as I am probably one of the least organised people you’ll come across (lists put the fear of God into me). I like the fact that the planners have a little bit of everything in them and you can personalise them to your liking.
