I’m so excited to share this post with you guys!!
Today, I’m reviewing over $300 worth of Erin Condren products. A quick note though first, I did not pay anywhere near that much for these. I was able to use several coupons and had a couple of discounts that made this so much more affordable.
So, while I don’t have any of the famous EC LifePlanners in this review, we’ll be covering several notebooks, journals, notepads, covers, and the new hardbound notebooks!
Let’s get started!
That feeling when you get the bright, patterned box saying “enjoy!”!
As you can see, I picked up a lot of fun stuff!! There were several designs retiring that I’d been wanting to pick up a couple of items from, as well as a sale on accessories.. Plus, the notebooks and journals have been calling my name for awhile!
Here are the three different sizes of denim notepads that I grabbed. Instead of doing a first and last name, I did first and middle and just went with “ashleigh anne”. I like this better right now! In the left picture, you can see that these come in a set of two. I was kind of surprised to see that I actually ended up with six instead of three, but I’m not complaining!!
After that, I also grabbed the “if i can believe it, i can achieve it” notepads. There are two different sizes of this one, and they also come with two pads each.
Here you can see how I’ve already started using one of these notepads (the largest) for keeping track of the different assignments in my current college classes. The paper is thick and amazing to write on!! I used Pilot Juice pens, but you could use about anything on it.
Now for the accessories sale.. I’m not a big fan of stickers in my planner (I write too much!), so all I picked up was this fun set of colored pencils. They come in this adorable metal case, with fun colors and quotes on and inside it. I’ve already used these for several different layouts in my planner, as well as for creating little doodles in the notes section of my planner that I use for quotes and such:
Now for the notebooks.. I need to get an updated picture of the covers, but I’m too excited about this post to push it off any longer! The covers came out just a tiny bit fuzzy, but I think that’s because I resized the images before using them.. Don’t do that!! Overall though, they’re still beautiful.
Here above is the inside of one of the notebooks. I got them all *I think* in a productivity layout, so that I have a full ruled page on the left, and then a partial with a column area to make lists, write notes, etc. I love that!!
Here is one of my most favorite parts of this haul!! I love these journals, actually even more than I do the regular notebooks. I found that the notebooks feel a little thin, but these book-bound journals feel so much better in the hand. Plus, the covers are silky smooth feeling and vibrant in color!
I grabbed two of these in the denim cover (a large one and small one), and then the other one in the “In Bloom Rose Gold” cover.
Here is the productivity layout (again!) in one of the three journals…
And then the productivity layout beside the ruled layout. They’re very similar, just that the one has the task bar on the right and the other does not.
Now, a quick little blurb about these covers, I got the denim again, but had to grab both sizes of the removable covers. These aren’t available anymore, but since I had been waiting and waiting to order, I figured I might as well go ahead and get them both before they were all gone!!
And now… Drummroll, please!
The BRAND NEW hardbound Erin Condren notebooks are here! They come in a variety of colors, but I only picked up four. Each one is a hardcover with a metallic flower on the cover.
(From bottom left up and around.) I picked up the Cornflower, Lilac, Turquoise, and Sapphire. Each one is beautiful, but I think the turquoise is my favorite!
The inside covers each have a different color of metallic ribbons across the first two pages, and then a quote on both the front and back inside covers.
Here you can see the inside of the notebook. There are colorful page flags on every page, but not any separately colored sections. If you were wanting to split your notebook into a few different sections or categories, it would be nice if they weren’t randomly colored.. But the flags still give the notebooks an extra dose of cuteness!
And lastly.. The ribbon bookmarks. They match the notebook covers, and how cute are they?! I love the colors! These seem to be pretty sturdy little guys, perfect for marking you’re last wrote on page, etc.
Now, if I’ve wet your appetite, you can check out Erin Condren, here, to pick out your own goodies! If you’re a first-time customer, you’ll get $10 off your first order, and all orders over $100 get free shipping. Also, there’re a couple of different sales going on right now:
