Nothing breaks my heart every end of the year than parting with my beloved planner.
For most people, planners merely serve the purpose of sorting their daily schedule, listing their weekly agenda, or keeping reminders for future reference. But as for me, I have created some sort of deeper attachment to my planners, to a certain extent that they become more than just a planner to me but more as a journal, as a confidant, as a friend.
A couple of weeks ago, I began this annual year-end tradition of hunting planners. Among the first few planners I came across were those expensive coffee-themed planners. But being the non-coffee drinker that I am, those planners were simply beyond my choices. Besides, I wanted a planner with as minimal markings as possible. At some point, it occurred to me to purchase a bullet journal which suits my preference for blank spaces but then again I was not ready to commit to that kind of freedom for fear of overwhelming myself with all that empty space haha.
In the end, I decided that what I really wanted was a planner that is neatly lined and dated, has ample space for my notes, and has a minimalist cover design. I scoured the Internet for anything similar to my preferred planner until I came across a set of pretty planners from a local craft store named Invitation House.
I was instantly sold by their chic and classy cover designs. However, their physical stores were quite far from my place so I decided to check out if the planners were available online, and that’s when I found out about this interesting online shopping site called Seek the Uniq.
Seek the Uniq Shopping Experience and Site Review
Seek the Uniq is an online shopping platform which carries a wide variety of unique, standout pieces ranging from clothing to accessories, as well as books, arts and crafts, and home decors—all of which are sourced from across the different regions in the world. The site caters to both local and international shipping, and offers Cash on Delivery, credit cards, and bank deposits as payment options.
I think what makes the items more unique is the fact that they have very limited stocks for their products, adding to the rare and special quality of each of the items. I personally love carefully crafted pieces over standard mass-produced goods, so this part earns a plus for me.
The site features a user-friendly and sophisticated web layout that is very easy to navigate. Since the site is photo loaded, you may expect the page to slow down a bit. But overall, I am beyond satisfied with my fuss-free online shopping.
Among the set of planners from Invitation House, I picked the Palm Peach planner because of its irresistibly pretty peachy color and beautiful golden leaf accent. (Ah, it’s too pretty for my life!)
I signed up on the site and placed my order last December 17 (Sunday). After I placed my order, I received a confirmation email containing the details of my order. I was also informed that I would receive an email notification once my item is shipped.
True to their word, I received an email on December 19 (Tuesday) stating that my order was out for delivery. By the time I got home from work that day, my package was already delivered and waiting on my table.
My item was packed in a printed cardboard box which was wrapped with a golden ribbon tie. Because of my excitement, I unwrapped the package right away and wasn’t able to take a picture of the golden ribbon tie. The packaging was so pretty that it almost felt like a present from myself to myself haha.
The planner was secured inside a bubble wrap sleeve to cushion the item from possible damage. There were also other package fillers such as colored crepe papers and cute shopping tags.
I’m not gonna dive into the details of the Palm Peach planner yet. Maybe I’ll save that for a separate blog post. Suffice it to say that I was completely satisfied with Seek the Uniq’s excellent customer service and speedy delivery. Add to that the fact that the items they offer are uniquely beautiful, special, and worth every penny you pay for.
