Toad Diaries | My New Motivation to Organise My Life

Toad Diaries Motivation to Organise My Life

Now that university has finished, I am already looking ahead at starting my third and final year of my BA English degree. It may seem a bit early, but trust me there is a hell of a lot of reading and dissertation research to do so it is best to get ahead as much as possible. I really want to get the year off to a good start so I can maintain my workload without having that last minute rush where an all-nighter is needed to get assignments handed in time (it has happened before...).

What perfect way to get organised than a brand new diary! There is just something about a planner that makes you motivated to work harder and get organised both in university or school and life in general. The lovely ladies from Toad Diaries also attended the Blogger Tiki Party the other week and had contacted me to see if I would like to have my very own personalised diary. I was so excited as I feel like it is such a great idea to be able to create something that has everything you need to organise deadlines, lists, and whatever else you may need to jot down. What is even better is when a planner is so pretty that you actually want to use it!

The process in designing the diary was as straightforward as possible. All I did was go on to the Toad Diaries website and started to compile together all I wanted in my planner. It was really enjoyable designing the cover to find exactly what I wanted. There are pre-set designs but there is a great range to choose from. You can then choose what to have written on the cover, as well as the back cover (which was my personal favourite when personalising my planner). I chose this quote ("She believed she could so she did") as a little motivation for me for whenever I happen to need it, but you can also write a little gift message for the recipient of the diary to make for a great gift.

You can also choose to have it A4 or A5 size, but I decided to choose the Quarto option which is between both of these, as I felt it would be perfect for me to keep it at home on my desk as well as small enough to take it in my bag whenever I need it. The diary style I chose was Cornell style which is perfect to see an overview of my week as well as note down any lists or or deadlines. They also give you the ability to choose how long you'd like the dates of your diary to span, as well as the month you'd like it to start which is great to make the most out of your purchase. There is also a selection of Notes pages at the end as well as this little pocket to keep notes in and amazing page of inspirational quotes.

Overall, the whole premise of Toad Diaries is a brilliant one and I would definitely recommend for anyone who needs that little push to get yourself organised for the year ahead. The features and personalisation you can add to the planner is brilliant and its really useful to have somewhere lovely to write down all the things you need to remember, especially because we all seem to be so busy nowadays.
