A Little Chic Sparrow comes to the UK πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

A HUGE treat arrived in the post yesterday, nearly three weeks after leaving the States to make its new home here in the countryside in Norfolk, United Kingdom.  I’m very excited to announce the arrival of a Chic Sparrow planner, the Deluxe Pemberley in Aubergine, size B6 Slim.  What can I say – it is gorgeous! πŸ’–

Not the cheapest on the planet (and certainly not after the nasty customs people stung me for extra tax) but I must say the workmanship is gorgeous and the extra money was not the fault of Chic Sparrow!fullsizeoutput_40f8

Just look at that amazing colour!  I paid a little extra and had an inscription put on, which I love and it has been done really well.  The stitching is immaculate and the quality overall is very high.  The leather is soft and squidgy, and thick, and smells amazing!

Of course, I needed some inserts for my lovely new planner and these I found by a British supplier called The Idea Owl – who stocks a load of planner inserts (for all sizes)as well as washi (obsession of mine) and some pens and stationery.  I was really pleased with the four notebooks I bought – two are dot grid and two squared.

The Pemberley B6 Slim measures 7 Β½” top to bottom x 5 1/4″ wide (when folded closed) so it is just slightly smaller than A5 which is a great size for your handbag.  I’m not sure exactly what this planner will be for – I’m thinking my every day planner as I will be able to take it to work with me and then use it for list making as well as journaling but I am only part way through my Nuuna notebook at the moment so until then I will have to find another use for it!  Any ideas?

Do you have a Chic Sparrow?  Or maybe a FoxyFix – the latter was also on my list but the one I wanted was not available, so I went for the Chic Sparrow.  What’s your favourite planner?  I’d love to know, so leave me a comment below.

Happy Planning!
