An Interview with Charlie from Sea Salt and Paper!

July 31, 2015

Hi guys!  Today we have a fellow planner blogger Charlie from Sea Salt and Paper!
Hello! It's Charlie from (formerly my blog is all about my love for planners, stationery, productivity, living by the sea & all of the little things that make life lovely.

1. What planner/planners do you have? Are there any you want to get?

My planner collection is always changing! I currently have two A5 Filofax Dominoes, one hot pink and one in turquoise. Three fabric fauxdoris (one in field notes size and two standard size). Next up in my collection are two Erin Condren Life Planners (ECLP) an 18 month Horizontal and a 12 month Vertical.  Lastly, I have a personal size turquoise Filofax Domino. Oh, and a pocket size Filofax Domino in deep pink.

I am so in love with the ECLP that I haven't got eyes for any other planner! I don't think I've reached planner peace, but my current set up is really working for me. I have pre-ordered the new limited edition gold Filofax Saffiano but I haven't got any idea what I'm going to use it for yet!

2. What planners are you using at the moment?

I'm using a fabric standard size fauxdori as my carry around planner. This planner goes with me everywhere! I'm also using my A5 turquoise Filofax Domino which I use to archive my shop and blog finances. And, of course, I'm using my horizontal ECLP (project management planner) and vertical ECLP! (wellness/fitness journal). I haven't been keeping my wellness journal up to date, so the setup for this might change in the future.

3. What are your favourite planner brands?

I'm really in love with my Erin Condren Life Planners so EC is definitely my favourite. I am also a ring binder planner girl and I equally love Filofax and Kikki.K.

4. Where do you draw inspiration from for your planner?

Instagram is my favourite place for inspiration. There's so many other planner addicts out there and I love being part of the community. It's also a great place to learn tips and hacks. YouTube is also a massive inspiration, this is the first place I look if I want to find a review of a particular planner or planner accessory.

5. Do you have any favourite planner bloggers?

There's so many to mention! The first planner related blog I ever read was Anna's ( I've learned so much from her and still do even to this day.  I also enjoy reading Rachels blog Others I read often are,, and to name but a few.

6. What are 5 things for your planner that you absolutely can't leave the house without?

1. Sticky notes 2. Paper clips 3. Pens 4. Page flags 5. Corrector pen. 

The only planner which I take out and about is my fabric fauxdori. It's super light and holds everything I need. Inside I have a master to-do list, schedule, bill tracker, house work tracker, business goals, project ideas and brainstorms, and notes.

7. What is the current theme for your planner pages? 

My planner pages are quite minimal at the moment  - sometimes I like to have a theme and sometimes I like to leave it undecorated. I'm using soft pastel colours throughout my planner at the moment.

8. What would you describe your planner decoration style as?

I would describe it as functional - I definitely like to see more writing than decoration. When I do decorate I will usually start with washi tape and pick out stickers and sticky notes to match.

9. How did you first discover your love of planners?

I have always had a planner of some description, even when I was as young as 8! Up until 3-4 years ago I used a week on one page diary, but once I discovered my love for Filofax and ring binder planners after watching planner related videos on YouTube I never went back! 

10. What is your favourite thing about Live. Love. Planners?

Live.Love.Planners is an exciting blog full of refreshingly honest, well-written blog posts.  I can't wait to see what you have in store for us!
