I was recently given the opportunity to review one of the new 2017 diaries from Busy B. As you all know I am a big fan of Busy B stationery and accessories so when I was offered the chance to review the Busy B To Do Diary in the Stripe design, I jumped at it.
As I’ve mentioned before I stumbled across Busy B by accident. I read a review by another blogger and went to investigate myself, flicking through their website and gorgeous Instagram account. I immediately fell in love and promptly ordered myself a diary to check out.
Since that fateful day I have ordered other diaries from Busy B for work to help me keep track of projects and deadlines, and for home to keep track of weekends away and days out with friends. They have become invaluable for me, and if you’re a pen and paper kinda gal like me, you’ll appreciate why I prefer physical diaries over the electronic type.
The diary I was kindly sent for review was the Busy B To Do Diary, in Stripe, for 2017. It is a great little diary which is approximately A6 size. It has a cool and funky stripe design and is the perfect size for popping into my handbag.
There is a full yearly calendar at the front, followed by monthly calendars, before your weekly planner commences. Every three months there is a handy pocket for storing bits and bobs like receipts or appointment cards and at the back are some very useful perforated lists, a great idea for jotting down your shopping list or, if you are like me, all important holiday packing lists!
As always, and as I’ve come to expect from Busy B, the Busy B To Do Diary is well made and full of pages with gorgeous designs. There is a handy pen loop to ensure both stay together, for what is a diary without a pen. The diary is kept closed by an elastic closure and it is the perfect compliment to my blogging notebook too!
The monthly calendars at the front are useful for jotting down important birthdays and holidays while each weekly view is well thought out with your weekly planner on one page with the other side left for notes. I’ve already started filling in important dates for next year!
