Hello lovelies! Tuesdays on the blog are now reserved for helpful tips. There will be tips on how to take better pictures of your own families, as well as some tips on staying organized, planning, and maybe even cleaning (maybe). Basically, just good ideas I would love to share with you!
One of the things I get asked most often by clients and friends is “How do you keep it all together?” I have an active family, a growing business, a full social life … and, as my friends can attest … a TERRIBLE memory … seriously, just awful! To keep me in line, I have a calendar on my phone, a dry erase board in my house, daily to do lists and my favorite … my Erin Condren Life Planner. Now, lots of people say paper is passé, but there is just something amazing about writing your plans down in this lovely (and personalized) life planner. Its colorful, its pretty, its inspiring, its fun (way more fun than typing it out on your phone), and its so YOU, cause you make it that way.
Ironically I didn’t personalize mine with photos on it … my teenage son and husband were not fans of their faces all over my planner … maybe I’ll use my fur-babies next year!
The Erin Condren Life Planner comes with stickers for birthdays, appointments and events that are preprinted for you, and you can even personalize stickers for specific needs (like photo sessions, swim meets and water polo games … you know, if you’re in to that sort of thing). And I am OBSESSED with color coding so each person in my family gets a different color pen for events & appointments. There’s spare blank pages for notes and a pouch in the back to hold receipts, stamps, labels, etc. And on each page, there’s a place to put goals and notes in the margin and on the very bottom, a place to put your meal planning, exercising, or blog schedule (maybe that’s just me). I love it … I just can’t even tell you how awesome it is. To see a super cute video … click here … 3 minutes of adorable organization with a soundtrack that just makes you smile.
The picture above was taken before I planned out this week … now its covered in stickers and colorful ink 🙂
