I’ve been remarkably unproductive for the past few weeks because of my own damn tunnel-vision. Everyone knows what it feels like to become fixated on something so much that getting anything else does seems utterly impossible. That status describes my very essence since Monday 29 December 2014. I still remember the exact date I placed the order. Yes! The order. Anyone who knows a wee bit about stationery probably knows what kikki.K is, and I’ve been eyeing their beautiful personal planners since last May. ❤ Finally, with a pile of resolutions and the sale on the beautiful gold personal planner, I decided to jump in and order the thing. I wish I’d have known I wouldn’t receive it until today just to save me some hair-pulling. Calling me patient would be a mealy-mouthed lie, but I do so much better when I simply know. Anyways, the beautiful golden planner that perfectly matches my S5 Mikasa arrived today, and I’ve already gone to town getting it set up.
Holy fucking shit, it’s beautiful. Some people apparently had issues with imperfect stitching, faulty leather and uneven rings–not me! ❤ The thing is perfect in every way from the snap to the zipper to the ring mechanism to the inside stitching and fabric-leather boundary. Ahem, this post will be heavy on photos so ahoy mate! Let us set sail across the golden photocean!
The clasp is firm and works better than I expected at holding all the crap I’ve already put into it together. The leather is a gorgeous soft gold, which I was hoping for. Under certain lighting, it’s almost a silvery rose, and under others, it leans toward true gold. It’s spectacular.
My newest obsession is that of stickers! I filled this thing up with them, and they seemed to disappear into its many pockets. ❤ I love that one can punch holes in anything and stick it in. Parfait!
I’m not done customizing the tabs, but I did craft one for the very beginning. I need to laminate it first, but it serves as a nice “dashboard” for now. Old maps, I could stare at them forever. ❤ Those awesome little monthly tabs are part of a sticker set from the wonderful website MochiThings. I love their stickers, and they’re very well-priced for such nice quality.
