kikki.K Planner Unboxing & (VERY) First Impressions

My dream to have everything I need in one place has finally come true. As someone who is always overwhelmed by the amount of information that is scattered all over my phone, notebooks and my own head, I’ve made one of the bigger investments in life. And honestly, it was one of the best ones I did.

When I say ‘bigger investment’, I mean that kikki.K planners are on the pricier side — and even though I was choosing from the SALE items on the shop, I gave away a bit.

Why kikki.K?

During my research, I’ve come across names like Erin Condren and Filofax yet my mind was already focused on kikki.K – it was a perfect choice because I’ve tried a ring planner before and it suited me best.  I would describe kikki.k as ‘gorgeous quality’ because it’s made from quality leather and the Swedish design matches my aesthetics well enough for me to spend a fortune on a planner.

Unboxing

First of all, I sent this package to the wrong address. Yay, me :^) It took me loads of emails and approximately a week of waiting impatiently until I got a text from one of the current tenants of my previous house that it arrived; I’ve never walked that fast and I’ve never held a package that carefully.

I order online a lot, therefore I unbox many packages during my days — but it’s a completely different story when you know that you’ve paid so much for a quality item. Unboxing then becomes this magical mix of expectations, nervousness and excitement.

I ordered a LARGE LEATHER PERSONAL PLANNER in GREY which, unfortunately, is not in the official shop at the moment.

It felt so fucking good to hold this planner in my hands. The leather felt amazing and the planner itself was comfortably heavy; as my first ever proper planner it was beyond satisfying!

I think kikki.K as a brand is well-established and quite cute. I like its authenticity and that it’s taking pride in being a Swedish brand; whether stereotyping this or not, but I feel like I can trust it. The greeting card was lovely and the box the planner came in is so good that I kept it for storing inserts and dividers I decided not to use for now.

‘Gorgeous exterior’. Oh, how I agree.

I love the number of pockets the planner has because I do love carrying everything I fucking own with me. Honestly, no sarcasm here, nothing fits in any of my bags… Anyways, see that notepad up there? Cute, right?!

The first thing I did was spill coffee on it. Love being this clumsy.

Monogramming was another feature that spoke to my soul because this girl (me) will never waste an opportunity to personalise things. You could choose up to 5 characters and how perfectly does my name fit on it? Bless.

Final thoughts

I’ve been using this planner for a month now and I’ve been very happy with it. I can customise it as much as I want, I can keep everything I need inside and I can finally feel less stressed about scattering my thoughts, reminders and notes all over the place.

The only disadvantage to me was that it took a while to arrive and I could not find the tracking number — none of the order numbers worked for tracking so I was left confused the whole time, hoping for the best. It might be just that I could not see it, therefore, it’s not a disadvantage but primarily my own fault but I ordered from kikki.K the second time recently yet still could not track my parcel. Any ideas?

Overall, I LOVE IT. I’m so excited to personalise it even more and find the perfect planning method for myself. I have so many plans for the future of this blog and myself, that kikki.K will keep me on track every step of the way. I also don’t plan to try any other planner anytime soon! #loyal? We will see. (I already want to buy a pocket planner, help)

Future posts

Since this post got out of hand in length, I’ve decided to split it and write another one about my planner set up! I’ve also already had one Etsy haul so it should be an exciting one. Let me know if there’s anything in particular that you would want me to show in the next post!

Thank you for reading! This post was not sponsored and everything I wrote was genuinely the thoughts of an excited human being. I wish kikki.K sponsored me, wow.
