Moving Day – Moving Into Your New Planner!

When we think of “Moving Day”, most people dread the thought! However, there is something so wonderful (and even therapeutic!) about MOVING IN to a new LifePlanner™. If you are a #plannernerd like I am, you too can appreciate the feeling of a blank canvas and an entirely new “journey” that awaits. 

Choosing a cover is always tough for me. I’m trendy and I like to switch things up depending on the season, the event I’m going to or the outfit I’m wearing… I love that our covers are interchangeable!

I love to add special photos (with a CoilClip™ Connector!) that are nostalgic and spark wonderful memories throughout my LifePlanner™. I transferred this one from my old planner, I’m just not ready to part with this memory!

I recently saw a greeting card that said, “Facebook did not need to remind me that it was your birthday!” The LifePlanners™ comes with 4 sheets of colorful stickers that help to highlight birthdays and other special events. I also love to add “bling” to my book with designer stickers that can decorate and inspire….

 The idea of a PERPETUAL calendar is so that you can keep one book year after year that holds all the important birthdays and events that never change. However, I must confess that I actually ENJOY rewriting these special dates year after year in the new Perpetual Calendar. Can anyone else relate? Ha!

Even after years of planning and organizing, I still get a thrill each time I start a new planner. What’s your favorite part of “moving day?” Share your thoughts with us on social!

Geaux Wild Conference in NOLA!

When I was first approached to keynote the inaugural Geaux Wild conference in New Orleans, I was SO excited. One of our company initiatives this year is to get out and meet as many of our fabulous fans as possible, so this made for an easy decision in sponsoring the conference, and bringing our fab marketing team on the road for the party!

We all met at LAX, and of course we won the most stylish luggage at the airport award. We’re asked quite often if we are going to carry luggage again, and we may…. we just have a few other exciting projects to conquer before revisiting that realm.

We landed in New Orleans and embraced the humidity as we drove to the hotel. We could not have prepared for our arrival in our wildest dreams. The hotel lobby was filled with hundreds of attendees who welcomed us with so much joy. These amazing women all use their planners to manage their lives in a different way, and it was incredible to hear the different stories of how we help them stay organized.  After a few selfies and hugs, we headed to our rooms.

That night we headed out to Peche for an amazing seafood dinner and cocktails. We enjoyed Bourbon Street, O’Brien’s, and we were even caught in a flash storm.  We seriously were soaked to the bones, and arrived back at the hotel like drowned rats! The lobby was again filled with amazing fans that wanted to meet us all, and we were happy to hug, chat, and take ‘mascara running down our faces’ selfies with them.

Geaux Wild day 1, was incredible. We were blown away with the professionalism of the conference, the charge of energy in a room of 450 smart women, and we realized that we had found our people! Planner Nerds Unite! We enjoyed the day listening to the various speakers, meeting so many of our customers and fans in person (beats email communication any day), and answering questions about our products.

Friday evening was very special. A handful of girls that we have worked with for years were also attending the conference. We knew we had to do something special to show our appreciation of their hard work, and to finally get to know them, outside of an email inbox. We planned an intimate dinner at Emeril’s and together, we all celebrated our journey, made personal connections, and toasted to future endeavors. It was a very special evening. I even shared my engagement story to #foxyhilary (I saw online somewhere that he had his own hashtag… ha!), we lamented the challenges that we’ve faced as a growing business, and shared a ‘Cheers!’ tradition (we’ll save that for another blog post!) and we ate, drank, celebrated, and gave party favors to all!

Saturday was also fantastic. This was the day of my keynote speech and I was blown away by the support and warmth I felt from the room of over 400 like-minded, beautiful, strong women. Also, shoutout to Jen Dufore who spoke before me, your speech was AMAZING! It was such an inspiring afternoon, and the party was just getting started.

We were still on a high from the keynote, but had a lot of work to do to prepare for the grand finale…. PlanJama! We set up a lounge to view the new LifePlanner™ collection, blew up massive balloons, added our products to the tables, and set up a meet and greet area. We headed out for a quick dinner and then raced back to our rooms to put on our matching mid-century circle PJ’s that were made especially for this event!

We arrived at Planjama and the party was in full swing. We spent the night dancing, mingling, taking selfies, and greeting all of the attendees. It was SO much fun and I can officially say – all parties should require pajamas.

We were a little slow getting up on Sunday… we packed, ate one last amazing New Orleans meal (obvi), grabbed beignets from Café Du Monde, and headed to the airport.

Thank you so much to the Geaux Wild organizers for having us and making us feel so welcome. We were truly touched to meet each and every attendee at the conference, and we’re looking forward to taking our party on the road again soon!

2016-17 Erin Condren LifePlanner™

The countdown is officially on. Mark your calendars; June 1st is our official LifePlanner™ Stylized Organizer Launch Date!

Erin Condren LifePlanner™

The ordering process has been revamped on our website this year to reflect the new changes, and we think you’re really going to love the update! You’ll start by selecting your cover design – and oh do we have some beauties for you to choose from (there’s two of them in the image above)! Our designers created a collection of new designs, updated classics, and of course sparkling metallic options in rose gold, gold or platinum. PLUS, the front inside cover now includes a lined dry-erase board section, while the back inside cover includes a blank dry-erase board.  More room for notes & doodles!

Erin Condren LifePlanner™

Once you have your design selected (drumroll, please…) you can then select which coil you’d like. Yes, you read that right! Select from gold, silver, rose gold, or the trendy NEW black option. Mix and match metallics, or opt for a sleek black coil with a bright cover. The options are endless and the customization is incredible!

Once you have your cover and coil combination selected, you’ll then move on to personalization. You asked, we listened… all LifePlanners™ can be personalized with your name or you can let the pattern have the spotlight without personalization! Want to know one of most exciting site updates?!? We will now offer a preview of your personalization right on the screen – from the text you entered to any custom color combinations selected!

Colorful Theme Sneak Peek

Neutral Theme Sneak Peek

Now we’re getting to the really good stuff… the insides of your LifePlanner™! As you could in 2016, you’ll be able to choose from either a horizontal, vertical, or hourly weekly layout. A BIG update to the layout is the ability to now select your color theme – colorful or NEW neutral! The site will allow you to explore each layout & color theme combination, so you can investigate all of your options before making the final decision. Each weekly layout will be available in either color scheme.

LifePlanner™ Features Sneak Peek

Last, but certainly not least, there are other exciting updated features inside every LifePlanner™. The vellum overlay front page, the ruler, and the perpetual calendar all feature the mid-century circles pattern which you will also see throughout the interior of all color schemes & weekly layouts.

LifePlanner™ Pouch Sneak Peek

The Plan For it Pouch will also feature Mid-Century circles and for the first time ever you can decide where to snap it in! You’ll receive a 6in CoilClip™ connector that you can adhere to your pouch, allowing you to clip it into your LifePlanner™ in the front, the back, or leave it in your bag! You’ll have to wait for launch day to see what other free goodies are coming in the pouch. 😉

As always, the Erin Condren LifePlanner™ will be available in two calendar options at launch, 18 month (July 2016-December 2017) and 12 month (January-December 2017). Now comes the fun part… deciding which LifePlanner™ you’ll be using this year! Let’s get this (planner) party started!
