2017 Planner

Beans! 

I never posted about my new planner and that’s honestly a travesty. Cuz it’s adorable. 

Let us begin with the cats. And the metallic gold lettering. And let’s end with the cats. 


This is my monthly goals page! 


Here are my three favorite layouts. Each month has a different theme, all of which can be purchased as your front cover. I got Alison a cacti one for her birthday/Christmas/because. 


This planner does have one weird thing, if the month ends midweek (as most months do) it will start a new weekly page for that month. As you can see, that was a bit wasteful for January. However, I use these pages for stuff like this, so it turned out well! 


These are my two favorite spreads. I have a weekly spending, to do, and goals section and areas for motivational phrases! I’m currently trying to figure out how to break up stuff I’m doing on the weekly page, and I think the bullets are working fine. I’m still trying to perfect this. Also, I use washi tape in various shades of silver, gold, rose gold and black to “decorate” my blank notes page. I got a few from Amazon but most came from Michaels and were super cheap!


Lastly, I’m putting it out into the universe that I’m participating in No Spend Feb. Unfortunately, I will be seeing a doctor quite a bit for the foreseeable future to help my back (health update for those who don’t know: I’ve had a herniated disk in my back since the beginning of October last year. It ranged in pain from not being able to move to annoying, but I’m finally getting it taken care of by an amazing doctor that I completely trust and he has literally restored my faith in doctors). 

So although I’ll be spending more money than I normally would on a regular month, I’m trying to break my addition to buying things. I really really like buying things and that needs to stop. So I’m not going to be spending money on anything that isn’t necessary. Hopefully I do well and I’ll keep you posted (on both my back and my spending!)

Btw, I got this wonderful planner from MochiThings.com. It’s such a freaking adorable site! You should absolutely check it out cuz THE STUFF IS SO CUTE I WANT IT ALL.


Butts. 

New Planner

Hi Keddahbean and Cheese,

I got a new planner! The Erin Condren was just too big and heavy and I stopped using it in January. So I bought this one from Target. It’s exactly what I need and it was something like 12 doll hairs. Much better than Erin’s $50. 

So pretty!

Teeny Tiny stickers are from WisheeWashiPaperCo

Hair apt? I wonder what I’m doing…

I love this planner so far! I might buy a new one in Januart, because I prefer Jan-Dec layouts – but this will more than do the job until then! 

❤ hope you’re having fun in CO!

Erin Condren Planner, Lush, and Almost Punishments

Kara! I almost forgot to post today! 

This post comes to you in three parts, and that was the first one.

Part 2: Erin Condren Life Planner

Mine came in the mail today, along with an Amazon package of 100 full page label stickers! So, of course, I spent my afternoon cutting out stickers for next week! 

  
The front cover says “dftba” and beneath it “plaintartsss.” The colors I chose were light grey and lemon, but if I could do it again I would have chose a darker grey and possibly a darker yellow. Also, I would have capitalized DFTBA. But that can be changed with a purchase of a new cover, if it bothers me enough.

  
Next week will be my first planned week! I hate that we’re starting off in July (as red, white and blue is my LEAST favorite color combo) but I’ll just go over the colors in pretty stickers if I want. Next week is Disney’s 60th celebration and I hope I get my stickers in time! (Sneaky how I’m not showing you my stickers huh?)

Btw, these stickers are from KGPlanner on etsy. They were $2.00 for PDFs and they are so fun! I will be buying from her shop a lot in the future. 

Part 3: Lush

Kara, you know I’m a Lush addict. You don’t work there and LOSE money because you’re mentally stable. 

Anyway, they recently launched a product to promote the removal of microbeads in beauty products. The product is called Life is a Beach, and it uses natural exfoliants to give you a lovely scrub! In this case, they take it straight to the beach.

  
This glorious baby uses sea salt and sand to scrub away your crusty bits and leaves you smelling like vanilla and feeling like a baby. It was $6.95 for a generous amount of scrub and (if it’s still in stock) I think everyone should grab some! 

To the very furthest star and back,
