PANDA PLANNER REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT



*THANK YOU to Panda Planner for sending me these planners for review and giveaway. All comments included in this post are my own and honest opinions*

I'm really excited that I get to review this planner. Panda Planner is currently one of the best selling planners on Amazon and Amazon's Choice. What I love the most about the Panda Planner, is it's combination of three planners into one compact, and almost weightless book.




Panda Planner is a nice and  minimal planner. It comes in a black cover and easy-on-the-eyes black & white pages. It also has an elastic closure for extra security. There are three sections inside this planner: daily, monthly, and weekly. Each section comes with its own ribbon bookmark. The bookmarks are super convenient for marking your spot on each section.




One of the greatest perks of this planner is the undated pages. Many of us don't need to use our planners every day or week. Panda Planner customizes itself to your planning needs. The planner should last up to 6 months, depending on how frequently you use your planner.






This planner contains very special features your probably won't find in another planner. The monthly spreads have a "PLAN" and "REVIEW" section. In these sections you can plan your monthly goals, write things you should avoid, and your monthly accomplishments.  The weekly spreads contain a special space to review the previous week. This helps you see what you can improve on for your current week. Now to my favorite part. The daily planning pages have a section called "MORNING REVIEW". You can write things you're grateful for and things your excited about.






As you can see, Panda Planner is not an ordinary planner. Panda Planner is a calendar, a reflections journal, time management tracker, and productivity tool. I recommend this planner to college students and anyone who wants to track their tasks and goals.



Panda Planner has been so generous to send me an additional planner to giveaway to one of my readers. Details coming later this week!

CLASS TRACKER PLANNER REVIEW



*THANK YOU to Lesley Martin creator of the Class Tracker planner for generously sending me this complimentary planner to review. All comments included in this post are my own and honest opinion*


New school = new planner! Let me tell you, my favorite thing about back-to-school season is looking for a new planner. There's something about getting a new planner that makes me feel so good. It's like a metaphor for all the possible things you can achieve. 

A planner is a necessary for staying organized. If you're looking for a planner that will help you stay on top of your school work, then Class Tracker is the right planner for you. Whether you're in middle school, high school or college, Class Tracker will help you succeed academically. 


What I love about the Class Tracker is its simple design. It has poly covers on the front and back for extra sturdiness and protection.  The planner comes in a variety of colors: navy, red, black, green, coral and sea foam. I'm sure students will be able to find a color that fits their own aesthetic. One of the most appealing aspects of this planner is its portability. The Class Tracker is 7 inches x 8.5 inches and it's thickness is very slim. It fits easily into a backpack without adding to the weight.  



 I love that a space to write your schedule is included in this planner for each semester. This touch makes the Class Tracker the perfect planner for students. You have 3 semester options. Two of them can be used for your Fall and Spring semesters. The additional semester could even be used for a winter or summer term. The creator of this planner  has thought of everything. Thank you Lesley!



Goal pages for inspiration and motivation!





The monthly pages are very clean and simple. It also includes extra space on the sides for important notes or reminders. I love the minimal pages because you can adapt them to your own planning style. You can use colored pens, highlighters and even stickers to dress up your pages. 




I really enjoy the vertical weekly layout. The fact that you can see the entire week is very helpful. This way you can actually visualize and set priorities during the week. I love that there are separate spaces for quizzes/exams/papers/projects, assignments and activities. 



Since the planner is tailored for students, the sections for Saturday and Sunday are smaller. But, they still include plenty of space to write a couple of notes and reminders. There's also a To-Do list for other activities you may have. (PS: These could be perfect to write a list of books you want to read. Something fun to add to your planner)


Plenty of note pages in the back of the planner.





Class Tracker is the perfect planner to help you succeed academically. This planner is the perfect companion to take on your school journey this year. It will help you stay super organized and efficiently complete your assignments. It is a planner that encourages productivity and cheers you on.  The Class Tracker an awesome tool!

MY FAVORITE STUDY YOUTUBE CHANNELS


Hey guys! I'm back with a new post! It's currently summer but school is just right around the corner. And if you're like me, it's a little bit difficult to get back into the flow of school life. These are my favorite Youtube channels to watch when I need some study inspiration. 

_


Twinklinglena is my top fav! She vlogs about her medical student life in Korea. I love her study with me videos. They always get me in the mood to study. 


Here you will find videos on organization, motivation, study methods and stationery hauls. Need I say more. Studyign is by far one of the best study channels.


Mariana is also one of my favorite study youtubers. She's a law student from Portugal. I love her videos because they're very calm and super chill. You can always find great study and organization advice. 


Studying + fashion? Yes please! Caely is also a law student. If you like studying and don't mind a touch of fashion and beauty into the mix, this is the channel for you. Her style is so on point.


I love this channel because it combines school and fitness. Staying healthy while in college is very important. Here you will find tips on med school, fitness and college advice in general.

INSTAGRAM HASHTAGS FOR COLLEGE BLOGGERS


Hi everyone! I'm writing this post with all my fellow college bloggers in mind. Let's face it, promoting your blog as a college blogger can be a little complicated. Although there are many college students out there who would love to read our content, there are not many networks geared toward college blogs that can help our content reach those people. I believe Instagram, as of now, is the best platform to promote our content. Hashtags are quintessential for getting your posts/blog discovered. Below, you will find a series of hashtags for you too use. Just copy and paste them onto your notes. When you're ready to promote your post on Insta, you'll be ready to go!

HASHTAGS
(Many of these can also apply to other categories. These hashtags reflect the topics and things college bloggers often write about. You don't have to use them all.)
