The Octaveo “A Year of Sun” undated weekly planner ($44.95 AUD) is a brilliantly sunny yellow, A5 planner with a flexible cover, hand painted yellow page edges and ultramarine blue accents. If anything would make you feel uplifted about planning for the future, it would be this planner.
Made in Barcelona and inspired by the Mediterranean, I think the Octaveo might make everyday feel like a vacation.
The end pages are a gradient blue with a small quote on the back page and a place to write your personal information in the front. The ribbon bookmark coordinates and is finished to prevent fraying.
The inside spreads of the lay-flat binding feature vertical weekly planning with cyan accents and 55 weeks of planning pages. At the top of each page, you can circle the month, write in the date of the week and off you go! So you can start this planner next week! No need to wait until 2018. Your year of sun can start right away!
In the back of the book are travel planning pages as well as lined pages for notes and other info pages like a world map with time zones and such. The paper quality seems decent but I didn’t want to blemish the book as it was too pretty and I wanted someone to give it away unsullied.
Why should it be unsullied? Because I’d like to give this beautiful planner away! I get so many wonderful, lovely things I wanted to share the wealth.
