My (Current) Favorite Planner Shops

With so many shops to choose from, it is sometimes very, very difficult to “check out now” and purchase from any of them. Many times, it is easier for us planner addicts to visit shops or purchase from shops that we’ve heard great things about from other people. For that reason, I have put together this list to help get you started with some shops that either I have personally purchased from, or with which I am familiar and have heard great things about.IMG_5206

Some shops may work for you, some may not. Some may sell items that suit your style, and some may not. Please remember, this list is meant as a starting point, a resource, just to get you started.

My disclaimer: I am a brand rep for a few of the shops listed, these are denoted with an asterisk (‘*’). However, trust me when I say…I. Am. Picky. I do not represent any shop just for the heck of getting stickers or planner accessories. If I represent a shop, it is because I truly do enjoy their product(s), and because they have outstanding customer service. Not every shop has good customer service, and not all shop products (stickers, inserts, washi, etc.) are the same.

 

STICKERS  (Listed in alpha order)

INSERTS  (Listed in alpha order)

You may have visited a few shops with which you are very pleased. If so, please leave me a comment below and let me know about those other shops. I’d love to try out some others and possibly add to this list!

Not ready to purchase from shops right now? No problem. There are many ways to dress up your planner pages on a budget.  Check out my money-saving ideas for decorating your planner.

Until next time lovelies…Be kind 👐. Be sweet 🍬. Be real 👊 but always DO YOU! 😘 💋

 

Happy Mail Etiquette

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

As a #plannernewbie, we hear the words “happy mail” and get instantly excited! I know I do! It sounds SO FUN! The term itself says it’s happy…I mean really! Right?! And happy mail can be one of the most fun experiences within the planner community.

So, what exactly is happy mail? I think I have a pretty good grasp, as most of us do. Happy mail is easily defined by the #plannercommunity as snail mail received, that’s not bills or junk mail, which makes us happy. As #planneraddicts, we ALL love sending, as well as receiving, this beloved, and sometimes unexpected, happy communication. But to do this successfully, and ensure that both the recipient and sender have a pleasant experience, we should be certain to respect the following guidelines.

5 Tips to Help You Find Work-Life Balance

Like many women, I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, I work full time, and assist my entrepreneurial husband when he needs me. Yes…like many women, I too wear many hats!  And I am by no means an expert nor have I found THE perfect balance between work and the rest of my life. However, in my own struggle to find some sort of balance between working, being all of these things and finding time for myself too, I have stumbled upon five tips worth sharing. These are not scientifically proven to be the end all – be all, but I do believe they will aide in the process of finding a good balance that works for you.

Super Simple Nail Designs

I paint my nails every day. Yes, you read that right…Every. Day. E’rry day, e’rry day. In my opinion, having your nails nicely manicured gives the sense of being a little more “put together.” So, yes, I do my nails nearly every day. If you plan it properly, this isn’t difficult to do. Especially if you just paint your nails a solid color. I mean that sounds simple enough, right? Here’s the problem, well here’s my problem – I get really really bored doing the same thing over and over and over.

This keeps it interesting for me.

So, below is a very small gallery of those super simple color/design ideas.  Continue reading
