Erin Condren Haul | New Products | How I plan

Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 11.17.28 AM copy  You guys know how much I love Erin Condren Products. You can check out the video where I talk about meeting her at her California offices. Having a chance to chat with her about her passion to create fun quality products made me love her and her products even more.

It’s no surprise that I love planning. I find planning to be a wonderful creative outlet and a great way to keep organized. But that aside the planner community on YouTube, Instagram, Etsy and Facebook is tremendously supportive. This group of (mostly) women are so encouraging. They encourage each-others businesses, create products, share tips. It’s such a fun community to be a part of.

I am sharing these new products and things I love because I hope to help you decide what may work for you. So when you are looking for products think about how you plan, and what works for you. I love the spiral system created by Erin Condren. I use the vertical layout with three boxes to break up my day. I use the top box for my
FullSizeRender 7

‘Top Three’. I list out the Top Three things I need to get done each and every day. I do this as part of my evening routine. In the Middle Section I list out my appointments that are at a specific time. So Dr. Appointments, Physical Therapy appointments ext. In the bottom box I list out things I need to remember, things for the kids, things they need to take to school, what’s for dinner or Blog and YouTube posts. In the lined sections on the bottom I track habits. Currently I am tracking “Nutrition (how bulletproof was my day), Meditation, Supplements and Sleep”. I track my sleep on the Beddit sensor which gives you a score out of 100 for the night so I write that number in. I have tried a lot of sleep sensors and this is a tremendously advanced and affordable sleep tracker, but that’s a topic for another post!!

Weekend Vlog | Decorating & Planning

Weekend Vlog | Decorating & Planning

 

Hey Everyone.

It was great to have a little bit of a productive weekend. I was really happy to get to do a bit of a refresh at my Husbands office. I am not a decorator but I had a lot of fun getting things together to decorate. Everything I found was at Pier One or Home Goods. I have to admit though I love my luxury goods at times, I really love getting a good deal too. My Husband does such amazing work that the space his clients and team spend their days in deserves to be awesome.There is something about a few new things here and there that change the energy of a space. It’s like saying thank you for being our business, lets make you look awesome. Giving gratitude to your space isn’t a concept I was really familiar with until I read Mari Kondo’s book The Life Changing Magic of Tiding Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering. This book changed how I looked at space, and the things I choose to keep in them, and I think that goes for work spaces as well….but that is a story for another post!

I also had a chance to plan a little this weekend. It’s something I have been missing but since the spinal fusion I haven’t been able to sit for very long and planning with decorating takes some sitting. So we have been keeping it simple these days but I feel so much better getting the week down on paper. Hope you all had a productive weekend as well!!!

Planner Addict Box | September 2015

I really enjoy getting the Planner Addict Boxes every month because they keep planning fun and interesting.

If you are interested in your own Erin Condren you can get $10 off your first order here. The Planner Addict boxes are  $15.00 with $3.95 shipping. If you are interested in subscribing you can here. When I receive free boxes using my referral code I can give them away here!!!

Let’s get to the fun bit!!

Planner Addict Sept 2015 (1 of 8) Septembers Planner Addict box had a wonderful gold theme. Adding a little gold foil to my planner always makes me smile. I am also really looking forward to trying the White Chai tea that was included in this months box!

The Seven Pages stickers are a lovely gold on a clear background so they can be layered or just show your page through. They are all a great square shape and a size that is perfect for the daily or monthly Erin Condren boxes. From pencils to phones to airplanes, you are going to make productivity look easy and beautiful with these gold foil sticker icons. The Project Life cards 12 Pack from Becky Higgins are also beautifully gold foiled. The included card says ‘You are definitely getting the gold foil treatment with this pack of journaling cards. Use them to create to do lists, copy down a new recipe, or just to pretty up your planner.’

The stamps are from Shimelle…It’s time to stamp it up in your next planning session. Decorating your planner just got a little bit better with these adorable acrylic stamps. I haven’t been into stamping in the past, but using these flat acrylic stamps makes them easy to store and easy to use. I love the vintage camera and of course the ‘Absolutely’!  I haven’t seen a Washi Tape book like the one from Amy Tangerine before but the variety of pre cut wash is awesome. It also makes it easy to have lots of kinds without the rolls taking up loads of space. I can’ t wait to crack this open and use it! Dear Lizzy Scrap Book Pages-Use these scrapbook pages from the Serendipity collection to make new dividers, dashboards or not pages in your planner, either way these designs are sure to brighten anyone’s day. They are a lot of fun, I will likely punch them out for my planner or to decorate gift bags.

The Dear Lizzy embellishments are my FAVORITE thing this month. They are whimsical in gold, pink and teal. They are so on point for what I am enjoying right now that it’s silly. The glasses, cameras and sayings! My only challenge with these will be actually using them. I tend to hold onto things that I love and not use them. But I am trying to break the habit!

This September box is really enjoyable and I can’t wait to get planning! Happy Planning to you Planner Nerds!!!

 

Planner Addict Box August

Planner Addict Box August

I love getting my monthly Planner Addict Boxes! For $15 a month you get some happy mail at the beginning of the month to make planning the month a lot more fun. It reminds me of getting packages in college. So this month there was lots of fun as always and the YouTube video is included below.

This is the full box packed beautifully with planner goodies.

Blog-10

A fun little Shimelle pen in a lovely aqua with the water color wash tape that looks a little like cotton candy when it’s rolled out.

 

Blog-11

 

Studio Calico word stickers…these remind me of those little magnets you can move around to make different sentences.

 

Blog-6         Blog-5Blog-4

 

Amy Tangerine paper clips in great gold shapes! I love the camera shapes. I also have found the bunnies to be really useful.

Blog-8  Blog-7

 

A full pack of journaling cards with monthly and weekly cards. I haven’t decided how I am going to use these yet, but I may use them to track my Morning Routine.

Blog-3

Wrap cord envelops are small enough to be useful. I have put the paperclips into the pink one and will use the other ones for storage for other planner supplies because they are simple and easy.

 

Blog-2

 

Heidi Swap paperclip flags and note cards. I think that I  probably wouldn’t have put multiple paperclips in the same box. That said I really enjoy the paper clip flags and use them to mark pages in my Erin Condren Life Planner and in my Filofax. I will continue getting these boxes because they are always well thought out and beautifullly put together. I hope you enjoy the YouTube unboxing.
