Personalising my agenda is a way to make it extra special; it also encourages me to use it a lot more! As you can see I’ve had my initials hot stamped in gold – this is a free service offered at Louis Vuitton stores. I’ve also found some really stunning stationary to use inside.
It wasn’t until the item was in my basket that I realised Laura was in Florida, USA. So although it only cost me £8 for the dashboard, once the shipping was added on (I’m based in the UK) it did cost a lot more! But I was already in love with it by then, so I ordered it.
I wanted to get some really good dividers, address pages and notes pages – something quite luxe and professional-looking. I came across Smythson, a luxury accessories and stationary brand (and therefore not the cheapest) but the quality is amazing. Also, the gold trim on the pages is absolutely stunning!

For the actual diary/calendar, I went again to Etsy to see what I could find there. I came across Becki at City Girl Planners and really loved the layout of her ‘year at a glance’ pages and the set up of the ‘month on two pages’ and ‘week on two pages’.
The font used and general look of these were the best I had found. But again, she is based in America so with shipping costs I ended up paying around £30 which is a little steep in my opinion. I also had to wait quite a long time for them to arrive – if anyone knows of any UK based shops that do similar inserts to these I would love to know!
The final thing I wanted was a page marker so that I could just flip my planner easily to the relevant week. I found this one above in beautiful blush pink foil with little gold hearts from My Paper Love Studio.
And that’s everything I have so far! I’m always on the lookout for new inserts, stickers and stationary to add so if you have any recommendations I would love to hear them.
