Ban.do 2015-2016 Planner Review

Hello! Today I am doing a brief overview of the new Ban.do 2016 agendas. I fell in love with the aesthetic of this agenda last year! With it's beautiful and quirky design I lusted over the small personal sized planner longing for it to be released in Canada (Ban.do offers shipping online but unfortunately it is quite expensive to Canada). My wishes were answered when Chapters/Indigo started carrying some of their products including the 'I am very busy' planner. This year when I saw that Ban.do had released a larger size I had to order both - perhaps one for everyday and one for work. Below is the light pink/rose gold personal size and the florabunda large size. 

Please note the inside of both of these planners are horizontal layouts. They are very similar on the inside.

I did a brief pros and cons list, please keep in mind these are simply my opinions. Also I am used to using the Erin Condren planner (with a vertical layout) which I also adore. 

-beautiful design
-color palette
-two size options

-thin to medium paper weight
-coil came bent in large size
-horizontal layout (personal preference)

All in all, I definitely recommend this, it is a great option for the price! Good for an experienced planner user and a first time user. 

Take care!
