Hello, Friends! Today, I find myself with a case of the summer blues – kids home from school, it’s oh so hot outside, and the beach is very far away. To cure what ails me, I’m hitting the refresh button on one of my favorite giveaways of all time.  Time to vote on the Flavor of the Summer!

You see, I want to give away a Bullet Journal Starter Kit in perfect summer colors. The thing is,  my favorite notebook, the lovely Leuchtturm1917 (For an in-depth explanation of why I love these notebooks, click here.) comes in a variety of great colors — and I don’t know which to choose! So I’ve decided to leave it up to my readers.

Vote for your favorite color combo and be entered to win it! Which delicious flavor pack do you want to be delivered to your doorstep?

The Giveaway Contenders

Take a look at these color combos and vote on your favorite below! I couldn’t help myself, I’ve named them after summer cocktails I plan to enjoy on the beach  — in my dreams, of course, I’ve got a million kids. Lucky for me, as the mom of a rowdy bunch of little tykes, many of my daily activities include cocktails.

Just kidding.

Of course, I meant many of my planning sessions include cocktails.

What? I love planning!

Flavor 1: Tequila Sunrise

Leuchtturm 1917 in lemon yellow, dotted, and a Pilot Metropolitan in orange.
So hot, it burns!
A tequila sunrise cocktail.
Look at this drink. Now, look at the journal. Now, look at this drink again.

No, I have no intention to kill a perfectly good sunrise. The lemon Leuchtturm is so dreamy in person. In fact, this is the notebook I’m using right now! Combined with the Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen in the orange flower design,  you’ve got a match made in citrus heaven!

Is it too bright? Maybe. Does that stop me from writing in it? Nope!

Look, all I know is that I can use the cover as an emergency signal device if I’m ever journaling on a deserted island. With a drink.

Flavor 2: Classic Margarita

Leucchtturm 1917 dotted in lime green and a green Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen.
It’s so green that it’s like Dublin and Seattle had a baby.
A skinny margarita with salt and limes.
Wasting away again…

You can’t go wrong with a classic. What says summer like sipping a tart, frozen margarita under the hot sun?

Not much, my friends, not much.

This lime Leuchtturm combined with cool green Pilot Metropolitan Fountain pen is like a trip to Margaritaville every day of the week.

Which, let’s be honest, isn’t a trip anybody should take every day of the week. There’re other towns like Bourbonton and Vodkaburg. Jeez.

Flavor 3: Strawberry Daiquiri

After three of these, you’ll forget that this is a girly drink.

Nothing beats a pink drink planner on a hot day. This bright berry Leuchtturm is sure to keep you planning with a berry large amount of magenta. Combine it with a strawberry red Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen, and I think you may have the most delicious planning kit around.

  1. They are all beautiful!!! It’s hard to choose just one!! Maybe the green today 😉

  2. Absolutely love the strawberry daiquiri!
    Those Fineliners look amazing as well; How do you like them?
    They’re one of the Planner pen sets I haven’t yet gotten my hands on!

    • I love them! I’ve had them for almost 2 years now and I still use them every day. My kids are always trying to use them and I’m like “No, No, these are mommy’s special pens!”

    Every piece of this notebook is beautiful. Im wondering, if one day I got one. I like the classic margarita the most.

  4. I’m personally drawn most to the Classic Margarita, but they are all lovely. x

  5. A very hard choice, but I´ll also go with the pink Strawberry one

  6. Tequila Sunrise. Bright and beautiful. Love the matches to the cocktails.

    They are all so beautiful, but I have to say, I just LOVE the green so much!! It is so crisp and clean looking & the pen matches perfectly. Love Love Love!!

  11. I started with a purple Leuchtturm. Now I am on a light blue one. So the Margherita is calling me to continue my reverse rainbow 😀 but that strawberry daiquiri is sooo pretty!!

  12. I totally love the Strawberry Daiquiri! Absolutely beautiful—and it may be more than fate that I selected this beautiful color for my mani/pedi last week! Love it!!

  13. I had to go with Strawberry. I love strawberries so it was only fitting. 🙂 They are all beautiful though, hard to choose.

  14. Flavor 1: Tequila Sunrise It’s so cute ???? I’ve just started journaling and it’s so fun to do and create

  15. Classic margarita!! Thank you so much for all the inspiration!!
