Planner addict?!

ban.do 17-month large agenda - one day at a time
One day at a time planner

Are you a ‘planner person?’ I want to be so bad- how do I get to be one of those people? I aspire to have beautiful, colored coded pages with inspirational, motivational quotes to get me through my busy week. I yearn to be one of those people that has cute little drawings next to her appointments with meticulously calligraphed times and places. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, do yourself a favor and go type #planner or #planneraddict into Instagram… Go ahead, I’ll wait…

Wasn’t that awesome?! It’s seriously a feast for your ‘I want to be organized and creative at the same damn time’ eyes! Amiright?!

For some reason, I stall with planners. Every January, I hunt for the perfect planner, and always end up tossing it to the wayside halfway through February. (And I do not have another method for keeping track of dates and appointments, so it’s really a bad situation.) I gotta get back on board with planners! Are you a planner person? Do you use a traditional January-December spread? Or do you ever buy mid-year planners? I just discovered this fantastic Bando mid year planner (link above in photo caption) that I’m kinda obsessed with.

My other possible options:

These Purple Trail planners can be totally customized and you can start them ANY month you desire! (What a great way to get a fresh start, whenever you are ready for it!)

These Day Designer planners that start mid year provide goal setting pages and an hourly daily spread so you can really utilize every minute of every day.

And lastly, the always fashionable, always customizable Erin Condren life planner- whose covers alone make me want to buy more than one.

Which one would you get? Or are you already entrenched in your own planner that you started in the New Year? Any recommendations for other planners I missed? I’ll keep you posted on my hunt for the perfect planner- the one that changes my unorganized ways…

What’s missing from your bathroom?

IMG_5519

You know how sometimes you don’t have something for a really long time, and then you get it, and you wonder, how did I ever live without this? Well, get ready for me to change your life. You need a countertop trash can in your bathroom. I can honestly say, I have no idea how I lived so long without one. They are the cutest, most functional item that you don’t currently have. First off, anything that’s a miniature version of something else is automatically adorable. Second, you can’t believe how much stuff you will toss in there, and how much easier it is than your regular trash can. I know, it sounds sort of silly, like, is it really that difficult to just throw your trash in a larger trash can? The answer is yes, yes it is that difficult. I first noticed the need for this little gem when I began my affinity for leaving dirty makeup wipes on the counter after getting ready. I sort of dreamed up how awesome it would be to have a trash can right on the counter, and then, boom! Just like that, I Amazon primed that shit, and in 2 days flat, I was living the dream. Makeup wipes, cotton balls, q-tips, floss, the possibilities are endless. You need this in your life, trust me. You’re welcome.

*I linked to my mini can in the post above, but there are tons of variations to match your personality and decor- stainless steel, different colors, etc- just search “mini trash can” in amazon*
