Starting 2022 with a Monthly Planner from Thelazeco- Sweet Bunny

As the New Year approaches, it is time to prepare for the New Year by getting calendars and planners. I always look forward to getting a new planner because the fresh, clean new pages make me feel like I have a clean slate, a fresh start full of hope for a meaningful year.


There are many assortments of Planners available these days sometimes, one may question which is really the best. It is not a matter of the best but rather which one would be most suitable for you personally. I have gone through many planners over the years and have always stopped using them halfway, leaving many wasted pages.

How to pick the perfect planner that is best for you- You have to experiment and have the discipline to use one. There is no point in writing everything down and not referring to it. After using a planner a couple of times, you will find your style. In my case, I prefer a monthly page. I like writing the main event of the day and listing down tasks that need to be done in a to-do list quickly and snappy.

Questions you should ask yourself before purchasing a planner –
  • Do you need a space to keep track of events and appointments?
  • Would you prefer to plan in a weekly or monthly format?
  • Do you need something portable to bring or just one you like to keep at home?
  • Would you like a colourful planner with stickers or a minimalist planner?

After watching the Motel Makeover on Netflix, I caught the craze for terrazzo patterns, so I searched on Shoppe for one; I was glad I did so because my search led me to find Thelazeco customised planners.

The A5 planner created by Thelazeco is precisely what I needed. I opted to only have the monthly pages for a monthly overview of the year. I plan to bring this compact planner with me as it is tight and light. Choosing a layout that matches your style is essential as you would be more comfortable using your planner and more likely to continue to use it for the whole year.

I like how well thought and put together this hand-stitched booklet-styled planner is.
It has a Soft Cover made with 250gsm Gloss Cardstock, and the inner pages are text paper with 100gsm Off-White Paper which is clearly printed and neatly designed.

What is truly unique about it is it is customisable. You can build your very own planner, the options are to have monthly and weekly pages, a Monthly planner 2022 with Singapore Holidays indicated, a notebook grid, notebook lined.

Another excellent customisation the store offers is printing your name on the cover, which is a very nice touch if you plan to give the planner a gift. A plastic cover can also be purchased to protect your planner from bending or getting dirty.

My Review on kāi Personal Planner - By Sweet Bunny

I made a pre-order for a personal planner back in November last year as a birthday treat for myself. I prefer physical planners compared to their digital counterpart because I find that when you write things down you tend to have a better recollection of task and events.

kāi person personal planner the best planners in Singapore – I chose the mint coloured planner as I love the vibrant green tone. I really like that every month begins with 2 pages of motivation messages followed by another 2 pages where you could fill in with the month’s notes I usually fill these pages with my aspirations for the month and decorate them with stickers.

Dimensions and information about the kāi Personal Planner -   The hard cover-bound bi-cast leather planner at 14.0 cm x 18.8 cm and thickness of 1.9cm is the perfect size as it is light and compact enough to fit into a handbag without being too bulky or heavy. With 196 pages, the 12-month planner is printed in full colour which makes the planner very visually engaging yet not too distracting.

There is a very good flow for your plans and thought as the planner is structured in a way that is very concise. I like the Monthly pages where you could see your plans for the month in a glance and the weekly pages are just right to fill in notes for the day the checklist on the side is a great addition as you check off your daily goals. I absolutely love the ribbon bookmark a must-have in any planner I must say, a back pocket to store random notes or sticker which is pretty handy and 2 pages of motivational sticker ending with additional gird pages at the back.

Self-reflection planner – What I liked most about this planner is that it helps you reflect on your moods and thoughts. On the Monthly page, there are faces that you could fill with emotion on how you felt that day.

It helps when it struck me that I was unhappy for a week and I would question myself on why was that and what could be done to change my days to be more positive and enriching. I also like that at the end of every week there is a small Colum where you could write what you are most grateful for. Sometimes we tend to take things for granted but we must always remember that we are fortunate in our own way it is just that we have to look harder for every blessing that comes to us.

How the planner can be improved – 

The planner is awesome! It is definitely one that I would purchase every year but it lacks a pen loop. I purchased one from Typo and stick it on to the back cover of the planner so I could always scribble in my planner on the go without having to scramble for my pencil box. I also place my planner in a zipper folder when I am on the go this prevent the pages from being accidentally by items in my bag or folded.

Keep it up, Christabel! I love your brand and the wonderful note to us stickers, which gives me encouragement and the motivation to push on.
