You guys. The 2017 Refresh Weekly Planner by J.Lynn Designery is here, and I am so in love! It’s never too early to start planning, right? Not in my book 😉 I ordered mine early because A. I really am already ready to start planning for all things 2017, and B. I had the 2016 Refresh Weekly Planner, the first that Jenna had designed, and I absolutely love it. I take it with me everywhere I go. It’s beautiful, durable and fits right inside my purse, so it’s convenient enough to have on me at all times, which is perfect because despite the fact that I love my iPhone, Google Calendar and all things digital, I will forever be a fan of the paper planner. I can’t go to bed without looking at it every night. Call me crazy, but it’s true. My 2016 version even withstood a pretty massive coffee spill early in the year (not uncommon for someone such as me) so that tells you it’s pretty tough too.
But as amazing as my 2016 version has been, the 2017 version is somehow even better. A couple of things that I love right off the bat – 1. The hardcover and the page quality; even more durability which will withstand a lot being tossed in and out of my purse and work bag day in and day out. 2. The goal planning in the front of the planner. I am a big goal setter, and I especially love having a place to put these goals. Having a place for them someplace that I turn to daily is really ideal for me.
There are also two planner patterns that I was really torn between – the gray + gold agate pattern and the pink plus pattern. They are both beautiful, each with gold wire bindings and gold plated corners for protection (I love gold!). After much contemplation and going back and forth between the two, I decided to go with the pink plus pattern because it ultimately is the most me.
There are also inspirational quotes to read each week which has been another one of my favorite features from the 2016 version. I stop and ponder the quote more than once throughout the week as I plan and prepare.
Not only does the planner feature a beautiful design, inside and out, inspirational quotes, goal planning, monthly and weekly layouts, color coded tabs for each month, inside pocket and a built-in notebook in back, but there are a few other very significant key features as well including:
+ Hard covers with gold plated corners for protection
+ Beautiful gold wire binding
+ Pocket inside front cover
+ Full yearly, monthly, and weekly layouts
+ Notebook built into back of planner for all of your note taking and idea jotting throughout the year, including both lined and grid-style pages
+ NEW quarterly goal-setting feature
+ Includes same popular weekly layout from the 2016 edition
+ Inspiration quotes on every weekly spread to keep you motivated all week long
+ Plastic-coated monthly tabs for durability
+ Small, portable size that will fit in most bags, purses and backpacks
I hope this has you as excited as it has had me to start prepping for the new year. It may only be October, but the holidays will be here before we know it, and it will soon be 2017!
