My Favorite Planner YouTubers | Spring 2017

In case you missed it, a few weeks back I posted a rundown of my favorite beauty YouTubers. As I mentioned in that post, I love watching YouTube and find myself watching it more than television. In addition to beauty, I also watch and love a variety of planner channels, so I thought I would also share with you my list of my favorite planner YouTubers!

My Favorite Planner YouTubers

******************************

Pretty Neat Planner | You may have heard of Jen Ross from her lifestyle channel Pretty Neat Living. Pretty Neat Planner is her second channel that focuses specifically on planners. I’ve been a fan of her original channel for years and would dare say she is my favorite YouTuber of all time, so of course I love her planner channel. She does weekly Plan with Me videos as well as sticker and accessory hauls. Check her out!

Microscope Beauty | Microscope Beauty is run by Kayla Benda who runs the sticker shop Oh, Hello Stationery Co. As you’ll notice in the rest of this post, I love following women who have started their own businesses and who are kicking butt doing so. Kayla is one of these people. I ordered a ton of her stickers around the holidays, and they were just adorable. I also love that she varies her videos (and planning style) between the vertical and hourly layouts, and she also often does comprehensive planner reviews.



Paper & Glam | Paper & Glam is run by Lisamarie who runs a planner shop of the same name. Lisamarie is the definition of #goals for me – she’s running her own amazing planner business (in addition to stickers, she also offers planner inserts) and living her life to the fullest. She also discusses her love of seasonal living in her videos, which filters into all aspects of her life and business. To top things off, I love when she gets real and gives pep talks in her videos.

Planning Roses | Jenna from Planning Roses is another shop owner – she has a very successful Etsy Sticker shop and also a separate channel specifically for vlogging. Her Plan with Me videos are some of my favorites because they’re long and chatty, and also because she has a nice mix of functional and decorative aspects to her planning.

Alexis aka Miss Trenchcoat | Continuing the trend of business owners, Alexis is the owner of Strange & Charmed which not only sells printable planner accessories, but also features her courses on productivity. Her YouTube channel is a mix of everything you’ll find on her website. I especially love when she does videos on her planner setups – they always give me new ideas on how to make my own systems better!



Lets Lumos | I’ve only very recently found Lets Lumos, but when I did I quickly subscribed and became a fan. She has a variety of different planners and films almost exclusively Plan with Me videos. I love queuing up a whole bunch and letting them play while I’m working or planning in my own planner. Also, she’s just finishing up college and watching her plan all the end of college events makes me nostalgic for that same time in my own life.

Karolina’s Krafts | Karolina from Karolina’s Krafts does a variety of planner videos as well as covering beauty and other lifestyle topics. I love her positive energy, and she was one of the very first planners I followed on YouTube. I love her Plan with Me videos!

Erin Condren Seasonal Surprise Box | Spring 2017

In January, Erin Condren launched their first ever seasonal surprise box. It was a huge hit and even came with a $25 gift card for future purchases, so I was definitely interested in purchasing when the next one was released.

Erin Condren Seasonal Surprise Box Spring - Box

This is the spring box, and as always, it comes with an info card letting you know what’s inside.

While this box didn’t include an amazing $25 gift card like the January box, the contents were still fun and a good value for the $35 price tag.

Let’s take a look at what was inside.

Erin Condren Seasonal Surprise Box Spring - Notebook

Cherry Blossom Hardbound Notebook

This hardbound notebook was one of the most exciting things in this box for me. It’s one of the many “sneak peak” items in this box (that are not yet released on the site), and the notebook itself is beautiful. The pages have a small pop of color and the inside cover has rose-gold detailing. Also, tucked into the back of the notebook is a coupon for 10% off – this was so hidden, I almost missed it!

Erin Condren Seasonal Surprise Box - Notepad and Address Booklet

Floral Ink Notepad

You can never have too many notepads, right? I can see myself sticking a magnet on the back of this and using it for food shopping lists.

Address Booklet

This address booklet is about the size of one of the Erin Condren perpetual calendars – so it’s quite small and slim. This would be great to tuck into your purse to keep the most important address information handy on the go.

Erin Condren Seasonal Surprise Box Spring - Stickers

Spring Sticker Sheets

I love receiving sticker sheets in these boxes. They’re an item that I know I will get use out of and will help me add extra color to my planner spreads. These sheets don’t include the vibrant foiled detail that you’ll find in the sticker books, but they are still very pretty and seasonal.

Erin Condren Seasonal Surprise Box Spring - Accessories

Cherry Blossom Corner Pockets

These corner pockets are little stickies that are meant to create a folder pocket on a regular piece of paper or the inside of a notebook. These are extremely thin, and it feels like they could easily rip. I would probably only use these to hold very small pieces of paper.

Mini Magnetic Page Markers

These are so cute! These are mini magnets, so they won’t be able to hold many pages, but these would be great to use as a cute bookmark in any book – planner or otherwise.

Floral Ink Folded Notecard

The winter box also included notecards, but those were more winter holiday-specific. This one is blank on the inside and incorporates the floral pattern that has been the theme of many of these items. It came with a matching small sticker to use to seal the envelope.

Erin Condren Seasonal Surprise Box Spring - Art Print

Stay Awhile Rose Gold Art Print

Last but not least is this beautiful rose gold art print. I’ve never taken much of a look at the Erin Condren art options, but this one came in its own heavy duty frame and will make a great accent piece in my guest room. Even if you don’t like the print itself, the frame is beautiful and could easily be reused.
