There are 3 days I get really excited about every year!
2.) My birthday.
3.) Erin Condren launch day… which is TODAY!
This year, the launch of the new Erin Condren Life Planner has been moved up to May (which makes me extremely happy, because May is my birth month and my favorite month of the year)!
This year, Erin Condren has gone all out! It makes sense considering that this is the 10th anniversary of the Life Planner. It only seemed fitting that they pulled out all of the bells and whistles.
I’m so serious. They truly delivered this year!
Not only are they releasing an updated coiled Life Planner with a gorgeous painted petals design, they’re also launching a collection of hardbound Life Planners! Plus, there’s lots of new and updated accessories.
To break it down for you, for the classic coiled Life Planner there will be:
- 2 color schemes (colorful and neutral)
- 3 layouts (vertical, horizontal, and hourly)
- 4 coil options (silver, gold, rose gold, black)
- 2 cover options (classic interchangeable and permanent luxe)
- 3 calendar options (12 months – Jan. to Dec., 12 months – Jul. to Jun., and 18 months)
The super fun part is building your own Life Planner to fit your needs!
For the new hardbound Life Planner, there are two layouts/sizes:
- 8×10 vertical
- 5×8 horizontal
Both options come with 18 months (July 2017 to December 2018).
There are a total of 4 colors/patterns:
- Black with gold accents and neutral mid-century circle guts.
- Cherry Blossom with rose gold accents and colorful bold bouquet guts.
- Linen with platinum accents and multi mid-century circle guts.
- Turquoise with metallic turquoise accents and colorful fleur feliz guts.
How are we supposed to choose from so many great options?!
I was sent a coiled 18-month colorful, vertical Life Planner to review, which is what I’ll be sharing with you today! But don’t worry… I’ve already ordered two hardbound versions and will be reviewing those as soon as they come in. 😉
Make sure to stick around until the end of this post where I share details about a giveaway and a coupon!
Warning: there’s LOTS of photos coming your way.
2018 Coiled Colorful, Vertical Erin Condren Life Planner
The delivery man rang the doorbell at 9:42 am and I ran down the stairs so fast that I actually rolled my ankle. But look at the beautiful box, it’s always such a treat to get a package from Erin Condren!
Inside, a beautiful brand-new Erin Condren Life Planner and LOTS of accessories.
Because I’m on a journey of self-discovery, I chose the “plan your dreams” cover and just added my name.
The first update that I noticed is the paper! It reminded me of my very first ECLP from 2012. It’s so thick and buttery soft. I absolutely love it!
It also makes the colors truly pop! Throughout the planner, you’ll find a lot of the painted petals design in bright, beautiful colors.
While this boxed section was one I didn’t really use last year, I’m excited to find a use for it this time around. It’s so pretty with the painted petals.
The quote pages before each month are the absolute best! They’re definitely a huge upgrade from last year to me. Plus, all the new quotes they chose are wonderful.
And I’m loving the updated notes page, it’s definitely going to turn into the page I plan my goals for each month on.
The monthly page got a small redesign compared to last year.
The weekly spread, too. Look! No more “thankful thought.” I love using that box for a inspiration quote, so it’s nice to have a bit more room.
The notes and grid dot pages in the back got updated designs, but I’m really loving that they added a few coloring pages behind them. I enjoy coloring in their coloring books when I’m stressed, and now I have some right in my planner.
Every year, I pick one page that’s my absolute favorite and this year, I’m in LOVE with the last quote page before you get to the new sticker pages! I mean… look at how BEAUTIFUL it is. At the end of the year, I’ll probably cut it out and frame it.
This is the 2nd page of the new stickers. You can tell EC has been watching to see what the planner community loves.
My favorite part is that they match the colors for each month! When I took note of that, I practically squealed.
They did leave the pouch removable, which is great. It comes with the coil clip, 3 newly designed compliment cards, 4 celebration labels (which I’m so glad they brought back!), and the two coupon codes for 20% off.
The pocket and perpetual calendar also got a redesign.
Guys… this Life Planner. There’s just something about it. It’s so fresh and vibrant. So clean. So perfect!
The updates they made have made this Life Planner the best one yet!
And I can’t wait to get my hands on the hardbound Life Planners to see how they are.
I’ll be sharing my review on all of the new accessories tomorrow… this post got really photo heavy!
