2014 sbc dream journal

Published January 2, 2014 by ladyemelye

since 2007, i have been collecting stickers to claim the starbucks planner.  but there was a change in direction this year.  i decided to get the 2014 sbc dream journal.  here are my reasons: 1) i transferred to a new job and the nearest coffee house is sbc 2) the christmas drinks in sbc are more interesting while the ones in starbucks were a repeat of the previous years, and my favorite dark cherry mocha did not return 3) the starbucks planner this year looks a lot like the starbucks planner last year.

the mechanics are almost the same with every coffee house offering their planner.  you have to complete 18 stickers. 8 of which should come from the christmas drinks, while 10 stickers can be from any other drinks that you order.  i tasted all of the christmas drinks (gingerbest, roasted hazelnut, cookies and mint, eggnog frost), and i would say that my favorite is the gingerbest followed closely by the roasted hazelnut.  with the help of my generous manager and co-workers, i was able to complete my stickers before december.

here is how the planner looks like and some of it’s features:

the planner included a cd of different songs, which are mostly acoustic versions.  i love the “chill” feel of the songs and have copied it into my phone.

instead of the usual dated planners, what you have here is a monthly calendar at glance wherein you can note of your appointments, holidays or special occasions.  the main portion is more like a notebook where in you can write your notes, to-do’s or whatever you want to, and you will not be limited by the date.

what i like about their monthly coupon freebies is that i know that i will be able to use them all.  the coupons include free upsize, price discounts, free drinks and food (without any required purchase), buy 1 take 1, plus a free sticker for next year’s planner! 🙂  unlike the ones in starbucks which usually includes discount/freebies for purchase of coffee beans or merchandise which i normally don’t use at all.

stickers!

the planner also includes these cutesy stickers.  wonder where i’ll be sticking them. 😉

overall, i think the planner is great and useful. plus the additional “features” are really nice.  i do hope i get to maximize the use of my 2014 sbc dream journal. 😀
