This one came in a pretty box similar to that of the Purple Time Planner (just pink). And although it's built inferiorly (more flimsy) to the past Berry / Grey planner boxes, at least there's still a box... I'm beginning to wonder if Kikki K is starting to be like Filofax now - charge more for items that are built much more inferior than before. I guess they all go down that road eventually...
But anyway, unlike the other Time Planners / Personal Planners, the leather on this one is textured. The leather is similar to that of the black textured Kikki K Large Time Planner. I must say though, that although the texture feels nice and the planner seems a lot lighter than the ordinary leather planners, it also feels... a little less leather and a little more fauxleather. You probably wouldn't know it's leather if it weren't for the fact that it's called leather. But other than that, really, it's a fantastic pink planner from Kikki K. It's bright but not too vibrant, and doesn't seem to be as puffy as the other planners (mostly due to the thinner textured leather, I guess).
On the inside:
I actually quite like the inside - it matches the pink quite well. And I love the colourful tab dividers that Kikki K has supplied with them. It makes the whole planner really vibrant and cheerful.
The planners still have that crease on the inside whenever you close it due to the fabric and the cardboard underneath, but I guess everyone has gotten immune to that:

Unlike the other Kikki K planners though, I quite like the paper pads they've included in this pink planner too. While the Personal Planners have got that boring black and white paper, this pretty pink has a striped 'Today' notepad matching the grey and white inner fabric, and a pink bordered notepad at the back.
I took a picture comparing the Pink Kikki K to that of the Personal Pink Finsbury and if you have one of those, I can say that they're quite similar in colour - just that they have different textures:
So overall, what do I think of this one? I love it (despite everything I've said). It looks beautiful, it's sturdy, most probably cleans well if anything ever gets on it, and you definitely won't need to baby / take care of it like the limited edition mint planner that was released a while ago (by the way, the mint's getting released again in November, guys). So if you're thinking of getting one, I suggest that you do.
