Plum Paper Planner


I took a Management class this semester and through a personality quiz we had to take, confirmed what I already knew… I am very Type A.  I plan things way too far in advance and put everything on my to-do list (everything), which is why I am SO thrilled about my new planner from Plum Paper Designs.  I love planners, but I can never find one that is laid out how I want it; I make a daily list for each day a week at a time (I’ve been using the sad notepads on my laptop), but it’s nearly impossible to find planners like this- until now!  Plum Paper has a planner to fit every type of need including: Student Planners, Fitness Planners, Meal Planners, Family Planners, Teacher Planners, and Wedding Planners. I decided on one of their Regular Planners. Along with choosing from one of their many many gorgeous covers that can have your name and/or monogram, you get to choose which 12 month period you want (I chose January 2015 to December 2015). Each planner contains yearly, monthly and weekly at a glance pages, along with notes pages for each month, a contacts page, Holidays page and a ‘for keeps’ pocket where you can keep special memories for the year like ticket stubs or things you need like receipts.  My favorite thing about these planners is that Plum Paper allows you to choose your ‘Weekly Spread’ type.  I organize my day/to-do list by the order of things that need to get done, so I chose  ‘Option 3’ which is days with blank lines and then a checklist for each day (picture below). The best part?  Plum Paper is offering you 10% off when you use the code: BEAUTIFUL10

Leather Quote Wrap


One of my favorite quotes is, “Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take but by the moments that take your breath away.”  When I found this quote on a leather wrap in C. Johannesen Studio’s Shop, I instantly fell in love with it.  C. Johannesen has a huge variety of leather bracelets in her shop among other things such as key chains and luggage tags.  I love that this shop has leather bracelets in a TON of varying thicknesses an styles.  If you can’t find a quote that you love, they will also do a custom quote wrap for you! The best thing about their wraps is that they’re made with a buckle closure which means they will adjust to ANY wrist size… yes any!  All of their items would make a great, personalized gift!

‘More Issues Than Vogue’ Tee


I love T-shirts; I love how you can dress them up or down and wear them a billion different ways!  I’ve wanted a More Issues Than Vogue Tee for a while now, but didn’t want a thin, expensive low quality one, so I kept searching.  Luckily I stumbled across Scarlett Jai’s AMAZING Etsy Shop and found the perfect tee!  With fun sayings like I woke up like this and Tres Chicthis is the perfect shop for any fashionista!  The best part?  Her t-shirts are $15 and under!   I styled my More Issues Than Vogue Tee with a Kendra Scott Harlow Necklace in Neon Pink, this drawstring skirt from J. Crew, and this fantastic chain bracelet from All About My Jewelry!

Mod Lux Quote Scarf


I’ve wanted a quote scarf for forever and finally got my hands on one from Mod Lux! One of my favorite quotes is, “Let yourself be drawn by the strange pull of what you love. It will not lead you astray.” – Rumi.  The last three years of my life have been a living testimony of this quote;  for as long as I can remember I’ve been drawn to fashion and now I’m finally living out my dreams.  The first thing I noticed when I unwrapped the scarf was how incredibly soft it was. When I put it on I realized it was the perfect length for an infinity scarf!  Mod Lux’s scarves would make a perfect gift for absolutely anyone (and a great treat for yourself too)!
