Summer officially over because of the tons of rain lately and a new school year just around the corner, and for some, school days already started the first day of June pa lang, it’s best to have your student life in check.

Now, juggling academics, extracurricular activities, and a social life can be easier, more efficient and super chic. Stradmore Notes, a leading stationery supplies brand in the Philippines, has partnered with young fashion icon and popular lifestyle blogger Laureen Uy for the 2015/2016 Blogberry University Lifestyle Planner.

The Stradmore Blogberry is a planner specially made for students to simplify their school life. It follows the school calendar, beginning in June and ending in May the following year.

“More than ever, students nowadays need to be more organized when it comes to their daily school and extracurricular activities. Recognizing how demanding a student’s life is, Stradmore Blogberry University Lifestyle Planner is their partner in tracking down their schedules and goals in life, one page at a time.”said Scott Yuyitung, Stradmore Notes Marketing Director.

Since it was first launched in 2008, the Blogberry University Lifestyle Planner has received an overwhelming response from students. It has become a yearly tradition to anticipate the planner’s theme, which has always been relevant and motivational, covering topics such as positivity, nationalism, and going green among others.  

This year, Stradmore comes out with their 8th edition of the planner – its most stylish ever – and for the first time, has collaborated with a famous personality who serves as inspiration for young individuals like herself.

For Laureen, this year's Blogberry is more than just a school planner. "Each month covers a topic that encourages you to take a step closer to being the best version of yourself.
