I think its time to do a full review of the beautiful Bando agenda planner. This is not an ‘unboxing’ type of review but more of an user experience type. I intentionally waited till I decorated a few weekly layouts so you guys can see how much you can decorate in this beautiful Bando planner. This 17- month agenda planner from Shop Bando  dominates my book shelf nowadays.

IMG_8425.JPGLet me start by saying that this is my unicorn planner by far. Its the first spiral planner I have had and I simply love it. I ordered this beauty around mid-July this year to get it just in time before its official start date- July 27th.  Delivery was a little over 2 weeks, that’s pretty good for international shipping. It was nicely bubble-wrapped and my hands were practically shaking as I opened it.

The minute I cast my eye on it, I was simply blown away. The 17-month Bando Large Agenda Planner Florabunda 8″ x 11″ for 2015-16 was stunning! I had never seen a planner so gorgeous. With its bright floral pattern and gold rings and band, not only did it look rich and classy, it was of a great quality.

The outer hard cover is tough and has this smooth silky feel to it. The first thing you see when you open it is this double-sided pocket with an awesome caption. You can store all your planner goodies in them.

The colour scheme throughout this planner is kind of quirky, fun and bright. Look at these awesome cute stickers!! OMG OMG!!

This planner officially starts from July 27th through till December 2016. Its got 17 month tabs plus 3 more for the Year-at-a glance, Dates to celebrate and  list of holidays.

The monthly layout are neat little boxes with little pops of color to mark important dates and holidays. I think it goes by the US calendar. On the left side, there is a little notes section and the previous and the next month at a glance.

The Week-on-two pages have a horizontal layout. It is very clean with so much space that you can decorate to your heart’s content and still find enough room to do your planning.

Every month starts off with two ruled pages of Notes that you can use for anything you like- highlights of the month, to-do lists, expenses, dreams, goal-tracking…anything. Can I also compliment on the superb quality of the paper. No bleeding, no tear…really strong!
