Huge Etsy Sticker Haul - Part 1

I have been REALLY obsessed with my planner. For the past few weeks, I have bought A LOT (over 10 orders placed is A LOT, right?) of stickers from Etsy sellers to decorate my planner with. Functional and layout stickers.

I have placed orders from Australia, US, UK, Canada and Czech Republic (Surprise!). Some sellers have few days of processing time and others have up to two weeks processing time. And then, shipping will take another one to two weeks (maybe a month) to arrive. Most sellers I have placed my order with have shipping cost between US$2-$5 plus I used coupon codes for every order.

My first order came from Lily Pink Prints from Sydney, Australia. Processing time less than 3 days and shipping takes about a week. I'm really happy with my two orders so far. She is super nice to accommodate to my requests especially for headers. I'm planning to order some more from her soon. I might probably be ordering from her every month. *lol* Plus, shipping cost is less than USD3 and I used her coupon code. You can use INSTA10 to get 10% of your purchase.

I'm still waiting for more orders to come. Once that come, I'll do another post. And I'll probably will share my before and after weekly spread for your eyes. ;)

So here is my first spread for next week using stickers from Lily Pink Prints.

Don't forget! You can get US$10 off if you're using the link at the side! ;)

Erin Condren Life Planner

When I first saw Elle Fowler's video "plan with Me" weeks ago, I had been researching about the planner that she used. Erin Condren Life Planner. Having a planner brings back a lot of memories and joy during my high school year. My best friends and I would decorate our planners with stickers and colourful pens. Pictures too!

Youtube was my researching trusted source. *lol* I got addicted watching a lot of reviews, plan with me videos and recently, Etsy sticker haul videos. In fact, I have actually bought from two sellers recently and still waiting for the stickers to come. One is from Australia and another one is from US. Most sellers in Etsy are from US anyway so shipping is a bit of a pain. I'm looking for Australian sellers so the shipping is much reasonable. 

Oh back to the planner. At first I did not want to get the planner because of the weekly layout. I prefer to see a monthly overview. But my current planner has a weekly view now so I thought I should just try it.

I chose the design for the cover, then chose the colour combinations, my name (and whether to include Iman Iqbal and Amni's names) and added sticker book and to-do snap dashboard. Hee :P I placed my order on 27th July and my items got shipped on 6th Aug and today, 13th Aug it has arrived! So much love for the cover!!! :D

My mom and my sisters want to have this too. My next item would be the Deluxe notebook planner which currently you can add a year calendar (worth US$15) for FREE for a limited time. I'm so tempted to get the notebook for work!!! But I think I'm gna place an order for my mom and sister first. 

I have a $10 off coupon code (see sidebar) if you want to place your order from Erin Condren website. Shipping cost is super reasonable in my opinion. Etsy shipping cost are slightly more expensive, although it actually depends on the sellers.

I'll share with you guys my weekly spread once my stickers have arrived. Oh! I have bought washi tapes from Asanty collection too recently. *grins* I have some washi tapes in my eBay cart at the moment. Haha I'll place my order soon. Oh myy.. This is definitely an expensive hobby!
