obsessed with erin

Today's the day I've been waiting for since she made her big announcement, but Erin Condren finally released her life planners for 2013-2014, and I am dying.

Not only are these planners totally customizable, they're also perfect for holding everything. I've only heard amazing things about the Erin Condren planners, and they even have planners specifically for teachers, mothers and nutritionists. Seriously, take a look at what this thing can do!

I've fallen in love and I can't help it, except for the hefty price I'll be paying because of all of my added stationery. But really, I need the matching adhesive notebooks, the colorful pens and the pen holder - and God forbid if I forget about the custom stickers I added. I'm addicted and I just can't get enough. My $50 planner just turned into a $90+ planner, but it's worth it right? Early birthday gift to myself, maybe? Like a month and a half early? Anyways, here are some of my faves that released today: Favorite Things: 
The "favorite things" planner asks you to list all of your favorite things (duh!) which is listed in various colors in the background on the planner's cover - cue Julie Andrews and a thunderstorm. Instagram: 
"Instagram" allows you to add your favorite instagram (or it could be any) photo to the cover, with your name (or whatever you wish to have on the front cover) written in loopy script along the side. It's super cute, but I'm way too indecisive to choose a photo.  Zig Zag: 
 Zig Zag comes in three color choices: multi, turquoise and pink, and they're all adorable. Chevron is one of my favorite trends right now, so to have a "chevron" planner is totally adorable. Viva EspaƱa - Chevron: 
I am personally obsessed with this one, and am stuck between this and one other. Between the chevron and the color combination, this one just screams Caro, and I want it! Initial: 
The last of the classic life planners that I'm obsessed with is the initial. If it's anything I love more than stripes and chevron, it's my monogram. Unfortunately, Erin doesn't make monograms so I'll take the next best option: my initials. I love this one mainly because if you buy the matching notebooks (that conveniently stick right in the back of your planner for any random thoughts and ideas), it has my initials at the bottom of the page. It's seriously one of the only reasons I'm leaning towards this one. And another fun surprise, she announced a new GOLD line of planners. Like seriously dipped in gold, with gold flakes in the planner itself. I'm in love.

Which planners are you obsessed with? Maybe I'm too much of a stationery whore, but I cannot wait to order mine. Or maybe not order it myself and get it as a gift for my birthday (hint hint, mom and dad!) Guess I made my choice in the Erin/Lilly battle. Sorry Lilly, I still love your clothes.
