The 2015 Belle de Jour Power Planner

Three months to 2015 and the question is, have you gotten your own planner yet? And to further expand on the question, how do you plan your day? Hmmm... Me, I like to make a list of what to do for the day, but I'm not a control freak that I have specific timing for everything. I want to be free, at least for a few moments.

But anyway, back to the topic of planners... Whenever I go to bookstores, I see that there are a lot of choices available. Other than what's in the market, there are also exclusive planners from coffee and tea shops. It's cool, but admit it, you only need one planner, right? (^_^) And if you're like me who likes cute stuff, it will really require a lot of discipline to stop yourself from buying just ONE planner. Hahaha~

Don't worry, I was successful in stopping myself. Even if there are a lot of cute stuffs out there, I have an endearing loyalty to Belle de Jour Power Planner, which I started on 2011. And every year since, I have not stopped writing features of it. Readers of this blog know very well that I love BDJ and how it has changed me to be a better person through their informative events.

I'm very happy to tell you that I'm now in my fifth year with Belle de Jour Power Planner. Yay! This year's theme is Dance to the Beat of Your Dreams. The BDJ cover girl is in an elegant ballet pose and she looks extremely happy. She is the epitome of what every BDJ girl is: a happy woman following her dreams.

I bought this copy of the 2015 BDJ Power Planner at the 2014 BDJ Fair. There were other Viviamo! planners but I am the girly and the creative type... and of course, I love the BDJ cartoon on the cover. (^_^)

For this post, I will feature the lovely pages of this special planner. Starting off with the first page...

Now this baby here is going to be a tool to organize your dance through life for the year 2015. A foreword from Ms. Darlyn Ty is inspiring for us all. Have you ever thought of it? 

An excerpt from Ms. Dar's foreword.

So lemme take you to a journey inside the BDJ planner. Brace yourself for empowering articles and ribbon-inspired fonts in between. \(^_^)/

The BDJ Team have retained the Goals and the Dream Board page (Hmmm... this reminds me of my 2013 Dream Board). They also added the happiness list to make you smile whenever it gets tough. I personally like it and happiness stretches through my face whenever I take a glimpse of it.

The two-page Dream Board page

My new favorite: The Happiness List Page
For the past four years that I was with BDJ, I never had the chance to tick even just one in the BDJ Checklist. Now, I will try my best to accomplish at least one. I already have some in mind, easier ones. Hey, I got 365 days for it. 

The 2015 BDJ Checklist

Ugh... Skateboarding, perhaps? Hehehe~

The Ikigai concept is introduced to the pages, as well. This is quite new to me and I like how it encourages self-reflection about why we do things. 

The Ikigai page
Another page that I adore is the Rules of Photography page. Now this is sure to help me take beautiful photos for this blog. Yay! 

The Rules of Photography page
So on the planner proper... As usual, there is the Monthly divider page with helpful articles on just about any topic to inspire you to be a better person. For my month of November, it's about Finances.

It has a beautiful BDJ girl image, too.
Alright, here is a quick journey through a month, a week, and a day of the planner...

To a month's page...

...with a mini article, too.

And an inspiring quote for the week

Yep, those are the sweet pages of BDJ planner. This year, the coupons come in a separate booklet. I love it because I can easily put it in my bag. And... even this comes with handy tips and write ups about makeup, finances, and life. (^_^)

The coupon booklet

An article on Work-Play Balance and... coupons!
And it ain't all complete without planner stickers! Wheee~

This planner is also your ticket to various events by Viviamo! Inc. I haven't yet joined in any meetups this year. Some commitments keep me from enjoying my life. (T_T) Sad, but true. However, that is why I love having planners, it makes you rethink every action and decide which ones should be done first. Priorities, they said. With Belle de Jour Power Planner, I can get those priorities straight and enable me to live my life to the fullest. I hope it does so for you and your chosen planner, as well. (^_^)

Live Live to the Fullest, Bellas!

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi
