I recently purchased a Websters Pages Travelers Notebook from Blitsy when they were on sale. I shall admit it was an impulse buy as I am a one-planner girl but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity given the price!
And it did not disappoint. The quality of the material is great and it doesn’t have the rigidity that I found the Websters Pages Planners have.
It comes with a plain notebook inside but I also purchased the 2 set of notebooks in floral and polka dot.
After many thoughts and trials of what to use the TN for, I decided to keep it as my everyday to-do list as there is not the space for the never ending lists in my planner.
Using journal cards, paper and stickers from The Planner Society as well as an adorable clay mouse from UK Etsy seller HeartsByEmma (click the name for a link to the shop), I have kept the front pockets purely decorative. The pink clay rose and sparkly bow are also fromHeartsByEmma. If you are looking for planner paperclips, I would certainly recommend!
For the inside of the notebook, I have created three sections:
- Don’t Forget – where I jot down future commitments which I then transfer into my planner. This works really well if dates change – I don’t have to battle with my perfectionist tendency of lots of crossings out in my planner!
- To Do – just as it says!
- To Buy – no need for explanation!
I purchased this adorable kit from OodlemaDoodles, a UK Etsy seller (click the name for a link to the shop) after seeing it on Mrs Brimbles YouTube channel. Living near Watership Down and with my love of floral spreads, this Peter Rabbit collection is perfect. The quality of the stickers is great and the colours are beautiful. The kit is extensive so I will certainly get plenty of use out of it.
I hope this inspires!

With all the “research” I do on Instagram, I had been spotting these adorable leather bound notebook covers and thought I would investigate further.
Travelers Notebooks are now a regular addition in any #PlannerGirl collection and I knew I wanted to be a part of it. Coming from the original Midori, the concept is quite simple – a plain piece of leather with an elastic band from top to bottom which is used to secure a notebook. An elastic band is placed over the closed notebook, keeping it in place. And depending on the brand and size, you can fit multiple notebooks making it the perfect On The Go planning tool
So, when I spotted this Joules passport cover in the sale recently (reduced from £19.95 to £9.95), I thought I would have a go. With a clear plastic sleeve that would usually house the passport and small pockets on the left hand side for anything else travel related, I thought it would make a perfect JoulesDori!
I purchased these small notebooks from Hobbycraft – they come in a pack of 3 with very pretty metallic designs. Placing the back cover into the sleeve, it secures the notebook perfectly.
I then added a series of cute embellishments to the pockets – mainly for a bit of eye candy when using it, however, the larger pocket is the perfect home for some stickers and page flags. I love the Dear Lizzy typewriter, Kate Spade paperclip and Shimmelle paper die cuts that I spotted in a photo by Christy Tomlinson, from The Planner Society.
Although the notebook is pretty on the outside, I felt it needed decoration on the inside. Using a page of the macaroon notepad from the August Cocoa Daisy kit, I added some glitter washi and tried my hand at stamping! Pretty impressed with my first attempt although I had to concentrate extremely hard – my OCD would not have allowed any black splodges!
I secured the notebook with a plain pink hair tie making it the perfect notebook to pop into your handbag and use on the go.
What do you think?
