Starbucks 2018 planner by Moleskine – It’s almost here!

The Starbucks Planner by Moleskine has been one of the features of my planner line-ups in the last couple of years.  2018 is no exception. I’ve been waiting eagerly for the announcement since the beginning of September, as Starbucks Singapore typically announces the line-up around the middle of the month.

I have not received the email yet, but I finally had time after a busy work to devote myself to this hobby again, and look what a quick Google search turned up!

Truth be told, I am not wow-ed by the designs and colours. I already bought the mint last year, so it is a pity they repeated the colour again.  The pink one appeals to me, but it looks a lot like the berry Rhodia goalbook that I just reviewed last week.

The other two, a dark denim and a light denim, look pretty cool. However I am not a fan of fabric covers, and I prefer my covers to be very understated.  That busy star pattern is not buying me over.

The Starbucks 2018 planner by Moleskine likely will not be in stores until a week or so later though.  Last year it hit stores only 2 to 3 days after I received the email. I remember because I rushed to the store near me on the same day, and ended up confusing the staff asking for merchandise they knew nothing of.

What I would not give though, for daily page Starbucks x Moleskine planners, like the ones Starbucks Korea released at the end of last year. So pretty!

Planners and Journals – The mid-2017 review

It’s that time of the year. 6 months have flown by and we are all half a year older, some with a lot to show for it, some (like me) with nothing to account for.  I say this every year, but this half year has been exceptionally tough for me, due to the job change. My journals, planners, and this blog, have unfortunately, suffered from lack of attention.

Still, it’s time to invest some TLC back into what I have been using, if any changes are needed for the second bit of 2017, and how that is going to affect what I will be using in 2018!

Because of the sore lack of use of the Moleskine Daily planner, I am now cheating and using several pages in it to plan for this series of blog posts.  Work is still crazy, so this may take some time.

But in the meantime, if you can’t wait, take a step back and look at how I started planner planning (oy vey) in my Planning for 2016 blog series.
