Panda Planner Review

Panda Planner Review _ Zainey Laney

I have been using a variety of Planners: Kikki K, Mambi, Erin Condren. Each has a specific purpose and organization method. Panda Planner is a different approach. First off, it comes with a web address so you can sign up to receive videos on productivity. This is good if you are not sure the best way to use the planner.

The planner itself is divided into 3 sections, Monthly, Weekly, and Daily. The monthly section has space for each day in the month, a side section for notes, and a section at the bottom. In that section, you can plan you goals and how you will succeed. There is also a space for reviewing how you succeeded at your goals.There is also a line at the top to put your habit and focus for the month. There are only enough for 6 months of information so to me this is not as good because you will have to purchase another one of these in 6 months if you like to use it.

The Weekly section has a variety of different sections. You can use these to record Bog Wins, How to Improve, Things I will do to Make this week great, I’m looking forward to, Habits I am focusing on developing, Education/ Mastery, Affirmation, top goals this week, and 4 big spaces for listing all your projects. This really gets into the depth of planning specifically. There are enough for 20 weeks, so you won’t have enough weekly spots to fill what you would get to match the 6 months in the previous section. To me this is definitely a drawback as there should be 4 more weeks.

Lastly is the daily section. Here you can track what you are grateful for, looking to why it will be great, affirmations, focus, exercise, priorities, schedule, tasks, notes, and a space where you can review the days wins and improvements. I like how detailed this section is, but I am not sure I could use every section everyday. From the amount of pages, there seems to be enough daily entries for 2 and a half months. For me, this is not enough because in order to get into a habit, you should do it for 28 days. However, this is good for having the ability to do it a few times a week if you want it for that.

In order to keep track of the sections, there are ribbons to place where your leave off. I think this is a great idea instead of tabs! The leather book is held closed with an elastic band and it is the perfect size to fit in your purse or bag.

Overall, I really like the concept of this planner, It has options for everything you may want to do, and keep track of. I like the positivity of it as well. I realize that this planner would have to be huge in order to make every section have enough for 6 months, but that might be a good thing. It seems like almost a mishap that there are not enough pages in it.

You can purchase this planner on AMAZON!

But stayed tuned to my YOUTUBE channel for a chance to receive this planner for free!

Things I love THURSDAY- Birthday Edition!!!!

If you unfamiliar with the Nerdy Fox Blog, she does a series on Thursdays where she talks about things she loves! This is my contribution, where I am going to highlight things I am thinking about purchasing (or just making a list because the holidays are coming). If you are interested in seeing my ever-changing Amazon Wish List for Geeky Finds, it is public!

I am starting to do categories for things now, so you should see these every time I post!!!


I do Novel Nerd (I try to post every monday) about books I read each week.But books I want to read will be here. This week I want to read 2 books:

The Infinite Sea By Phillip Yancey _ Zainey Laney The Last Star by Phillip Yancey _ Zainey Laney

These are the sequels to The Fifth Wave and since the movie is coming out soon, I cannot wait to read these! Follow me on GOODREADS for more books I am reading or want to read (or check out the widget on the right.


You all know I love palettes! Make sure you come back on Fridays for Palette Play, where I do reviews on palettes in my collection. But this is all about palette wants and this week I want:

in thebalm of you hand palette _ Zainey Laney

It is a collection of favorites from theBalm which is one of my favorite makeup companies. I already have Hot Mama and Cabana Boy, but this is such an amazing palette and I would love to try it!


colourpop ultra matte _ Zainey Laney

I know these are all the rage right now, and for good reason. I would love to try these! Colors on my wish list are Koala, Midi, Clueless, and Trap although they just came out with some new ones and of those I would love More Better.


the muppets _ zainey laney

I have a large love of The Muppets. Seriously I own all their movies and I used to have a Kermit everything when I was growing up. But this show is funny, witty, and just a good time. I highly recommend if you are looking to laugh. Or not.





Pan _ Zainey Laney

My birthday request is to see Pan, which opens tomorrow (Oct 9). It fans my love for Hugh Jackman and I hope it does not suck. Besides we love Peter Pan in out house, and watch Hook every Christmas Eve.

Geek Item:

I collect Funkos. You should know this by now. So here is one for my wish list:

Doctor Who Funkos _ zainey laney

I already have the 10th Doctor (and the 12th in mini form) but I would love to add these to my collection, especially the Tardis, Dalek, and Weeping Angel. One can never have too many Tardis in their house? #AmIRight?


I have some miscellaneous Items I would love to own.

Dokibook Lavendar Planner _ Zainey Laney

I have been collecting different planners so I can review on my channel and blog. The color on this is amazing! It is a knockoff of Kikki K which is called Dokibook and I would love to own this one in the large size.

Lego Dimension _ Zainey Laney

Lastly, I want this game! It is similar to Disney Infinity or the Amiibo system, but it is Legos! These are my favorite series of game and I buy them all and play. This one is a major money suck, but I don’t care. Especially because they have Jurassic and Doctor Who!

So that is another Things I love Thursday! Be sure to check out the Nerdy Fox also.

Until Next Time,
