I like to try and be organised, although I may be the most disorganised person on the planet at times. I love buying pretty diaries and journals, but after the first few days they lie unused and end up at the back of a drawer somewhere. When I discovered the Posh Coloring Planner I knew this wouldn't be one that falls foul of my laziness!
This book is a beautifully illustrated calendar/diary with loads of colouring included! It's in a 16-month weekly format with a new colouring page every 7 days, and has multiple styles of design to suit all colourists. As you can see in the slideshow below, the book starts off with monthly grids for you to see all 2015/2016 appointments at a glance, and then moves onto a double-page spread made up of diary and colouring page- I've included some images of the types of illustrations that there are. At the rear of the book you'll find spaces for addresses and phone numbers, emergency contacts, notes and planning pages for 2017.
The book is lovely to look at with a colourful glossy paisley cover and rounded corners, measuring 9x7 inches for handy portability. It has 54 colouring pages of several natural themes, including florals, geometrics, and swirls. Linework on the illustrations varies from wispy and fine to chunky and broad, and the paper is fairly thick and smooth. I'd advise using only pencils or water-based markers though so you don't ruin the diary page on the reverse.
Overall I think this is a first-class effort at combining colouring and daily planning, and has been wonderfully executed in both a fun and practical way. A few small Americanisms like the C for cellphone number and some odd emergency contact choices are the only things that give away the source of this book, but this is insignificant. I haven't yet started colouring as I want to wait until January and do it properly, but I can highly recommend this planner at face value, and for the price (currently £11.86).
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. You can find it on Amazon, here:
