Kikki K Gold Medium - My Unicorn


I've never had a ringed planner system. In fact, before Midori, i was a multiple planner, journals, and writing notebook kind of girl. Let alone whatever I Was reading at the time. My purses were always so heavy. But I have been eyeing the kikki k for a while now. I'd say about 6 months. But I have been so happy with my midori system that I haven't really thought about purchasing anything else....

Until I joined the kikki k planner groups on facebook.

Oh 

My 

Goodness. 

It was love. The Kikki K site was having this sale (that apparently was actually a leaked code- oops) and I got an extra 20 dollars off a planner that was already 50% off. So I ended up paying about $20 for a $100 planner. Score one for the cheap girl! But this purchase was a large pink Kikki K in A5 size, and it was an impulse buy. The more research I did, the more I realized that I'd like something a little smaller to carry around with me everyday. I desperately wanted the gold, but they were no longer selling them and everyone on Ebay was charging an arm and a leg. As a fluke, I was snooping on other people's posts and I saw someone talking about the gold and saying they didn't really want it anymore. So I jumped on the the opportunity. Turned out she was an amazing woman and she didn't inflate the price at all!!!  So my unicorn, the illusive gold kikki k, was actually in my reach.  

And as if things needed to get any better, she hadn't even taken it out of the box yet. So everything came in perfect condition. Can...you...even...imagine? The picture above is how she comes in the mail.

I spent all afternoon putting her together and getting all the pieces just right. I printed out the daily inserts and everything else I planned on using in my Kikkik.

The dashboard features a quote that I absolutely adore: 

"Benedicto: May your trails be crooked, winding,  lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your  mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without  end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past  temples and castles and poets towers into a dark primeval forest where  tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and  down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and  grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient  unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where  deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as  lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more  beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits  for  you -- beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.”

I printed it over one of the pictures I use as  a background on my iphone. 

The first page of my dividers. I used some old scrapbook paper from the my minds eye collection. I got the idea for the hearts as page flags from Filo_newbie14 on instagram. I don't love that white page. I need something to add to it. Black pages make me nauseous.

I bought these inserts from ThePreppyGreek on Etsy and it was custom made for me because I really wanted the gold polka dot pages!

Monthly insert with cute little heart butts hanging out.

Weekly inserts. I love that these print on regular paper and I just had to cut them out without changing the paper size or anything.

Daily inserts that I got from---hmmm I don't remember. I found them on pinterest somewhere. LOOOOOVE THEM!

The start of my notes section.

  Blog planner pages from Wenduhh. She has a lot of cute printables.


I kept the original Expenses insert from Kikki because I haven't found another one yet. I also found this adorable princess crown notepad at Michaels and cut it down to replace the one that came with the Kikki K.

Here it is compared to Stormy, my ZenKraft Travellers notebook.

And lastly, here's what I have in the front pocket. I have lots of stickers and a set of paris sticky notes from etsy. 

I am very much in love with it. I also want a white Webster's Pages personal planner. I have no idea what I will use all of them for. It doesn't matter. I don't have to have a purpose for them, other than to oogle them with my eyes.

Do you have a Unicorn In your life? What is it?!

  1. I don't have enough things going on in my life to necessitate a beautiful planner like a kikiki or filofax or the like but I still enjoy looking at them. If I ever have a midori I think I'm going to start using a bullet journal in conjunction with my regular journal keeping but that would be enough for me planning wise.
