Erin Condren 2020 LifePlanner Review

Hi everyone,

Happy 2020! As much as I enjoyed the break, I’m happy to be back and today I’m going to be going through the 2020 Erin Condren LifePlanner. I started using the LifePlanner last year and it absolutely changed the game for me, so getting one for this year was a no brainer. So the one that I got is the Starry Sky in Ivory and Gray with a vertical layout and colorful theme inside. I also personalized it with my first and middle name on the front.

WIGC7

Along with the little ruler that’s attached to the front of the planner you also get a hexagon box label, gift labels, compliment cards, friends and family discount cards and a kaleidoscope storage box. I’m currently using the box and I’ve given out the friends and family discount cards. You also get a perpetual calendar.

ECPL17

On to the planner itself, when you first open it you’re met with a quote across two pages on a kaleidoscope background that says ‘Success means having the courage to become the person you believe you were meant to be’.

ECPL3

The next page is an overview of the last six months of 2019 and all of 2020.

ECPL4

After that you have 12 boxes, 6 per page, on one side of the page it says ‘New beginning, new mindset, new focus’ and on the other ‘New start, new intentions, new results’. I like to assign each box to a month.

ECPL5

At the start of each month there is a new quote and the one for January says ‘Passion and purpose give you progress’.

ECPL6

On the back of the quote page there is a section to use however and on the page next to it there is a layout that says the month on top, there is a box for monthly goals, birthdays, another for whatever you choose and at the bottom there’s a dot grid section.

ECPL7

Once you turn that page you get the month all laid out with a notes section of the far right.

ECPL8

Then you get the month broken down by week with each day getting three sections and a small notes section at the bottom.

ECPL9

At the back of the planner, right after December, you get a notes section of four lined pages.

ECPL10

Next to that is four dot grid pages.

ECPL11

You then get two coloring pages with unique patterns.

ECPL12

After the coloring pages is a page of 12 multicolored hexagons and next to that is a contacts page.

ECPL13

The last pages are an overview of 2021 with spaces for notes/goals at the bottom.

ECPL14

Then you have 5 pages of various stickers.

ECPL15

And lastly you have kaleidoscope folder pockets and I appreciate that each side of the pocket is the same depth.

ECPL16

That about wraps it up for this post, you guys know that planners are my favorite but I’d love to know if you guys are planner people or if you prefer another method.

Until next time, happy planning and here’s to a great 2020 :).

What I Got For Christmas 2019

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you guys what I got for Christmas. I do want to say that I’m in no way trying to brag, I’m one of those people that enjoy reading and watching this type of post. This year I didn’t have a real list of things I wanted, so I was happily surprised by a few of these gifts.

The first thing we have is what was in my stocking. Besides my favorite candy, there was a Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar mist and body lotion. It’s my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works. Along with that there was a little flashlight, I love little practical things like this and you can never have too many flashlights. The last two things that were in my stocking were a mini Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder infused with peach and sweet fig milk and the Peach Kiss Lipstick in Sex On The Peach.

WIGC1

I used the setting powder yesterday and today and I really like it. Added bonus, it smells like peaches. The lipstick also smells like peaches and it’s a comfort matte, long wearing and also infused with peach and sweet fig milk. Too Faced lipsticks are always really pigmented and this one is no different. I believe there are 13 shades of the Peach Kiss Lipsticks and I’m definitely going to be purchasing a few more.

WIGC2

WIGC3

Continuing on with the beauty theme, the first thing I unwrapped was the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party set. I was honestly so, so shocked to see this because I had mentioned it in a text to my mom like right after it came out then didn’t say anything after. I was considering buying this for myself as a Christmas gift but it was sold out on Sephora and Too Faced when I looked but for whatever reason I didn’t check at my local Sephora and they had a couple left which I’m super happy about. I’m going to be doing a separate post on this, so I’m not going to get into it too much, but I will say that yesterday I wore a couple of the shadows and I’m really happy with them. It was a good makeup day.

WIGC14

WIGC15

The second beauty item I got was the Sephora Collection Frosted Kisses Lip Stories Lipstick Set. This is also going to get it’s own post, but I will say that I’ve swatched all of these, wore one on Christmas Day and I’m wearing one now. I’m really liking them and I recommend them.

WIGC13

Next up we have a fashion item and it’s this light powder pink shoulder bag from H&M. I have a few different handbags and clutches but nothing like this. Like I said this is a light powder pink suede with silver hardware and leathery handles. It has a snap closure, one medium sized pocket on the very front, the main compartment and another pocket inside the main. You can adjust the way you wear it, so if the handles are the same length then it’s a shoulder bag, but if you stretch it out you can wear it like a crossbody. I didn’t realize when I was taking the pictures that it was a little crooked but that’s because of the pull on the door and not that bag.

WIGC9

WIGC10

WIGC11

WIGC12

Moving on we have a couple of practical things. The first is a 2020 Erin Condren Planner. I got my first Erin Condren Planner last Christmas and it was an absolute game changer, so I knew I had to have one for the new year. This will be getting it’s own post, but I did go for a different pattern, different colors and I put my first and middle name on it.

WIGC6

WIGC7

The second practical gift I got was a calendar. I have a couple of calendars that I use for different things and sometimes they’re different sizes but this one is my main calendar. There are two or three themes I typically go for when it comes to calendars, this one is jet themed. And has some great pictures.

WIGC4

WIGC5

And the last thing we have is music related, and it’s the Doobie Brothers Live From The Beacon Theatre Blu-Ray and CD Set. I talked about this when it came out, I have it on my phone and they showed a little bit of it on PBS. I like to have a physical copy of music, hence the CD Set and if I can help it I buy all discs in Blu-Ray. So I’m excited to have a music night and watch the full concert.

WIGC8

That about wraps it up for this post, I did also receive some socks, because it’s not Christmas if you don’t get socks, and a mug but it’s currently in the dishwasher because I used it this morning.

Until next time, enjoy your gifts and I hope you all had an amazing Christmas :).

January Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the last day of the month I’m going to be doing my January favorites. For me this month was busy but also about 74 years long. But we made it, congrats everyone. This month I had a pretty good mix of things that I loved, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, my first favorite is the Verb  Ghost Oil. I got this in my December Sephora Play Box and was instantly intrigued. It not only gives heat protection, but it helps with getting rid of frizz. I’m not even kidding, I think it doubled my hairs softness. I definitely recommend it.

My second beauty favorite is a concealer and it’s the Sephora Collection Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer in 03 Fondant. I got this as a sample with a recent Sephora purchase and I’ve been loving it. It’s doesn’t feel heavy on and it’s very buildable. This shade is always out of stock on the Sephora website, so I’m going to pick one up at Sephora. But if you’re looking for a new concealer I would say try this one.

My second to last favorite is two mascaras. For my birthday, one of the things I got was the Sephora Favorites Lashstash and I’ll leave a link down below if you haven’t read it. It’s a set of ten mascaras, two of which are full size. And in the recent weeks I’ve been really loving two of them. The first is the Urban Decay Perversion Bigger, Blacker, Badder in Black. This mascara has a big and fluffy-ish brush and it gives my lashes length and a lot of volume.

My second favorite mascara is the Benefit BAD gal BANG! Mascara in Black. This 100% lived up to all of the hype. This gives you insane volume and length, I’m really impressed. It has a long, skinny silicone brush and it has a lot of flex in it so you really get all of your lashes.

sfl26

sfl27

My last beauty favorite is Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelette Singles. You guys have seen my nightly routine, so you know I pretty much never use makeup wipes to take off my makeup. And if I do it’s because I’m really tired and just can’t be bothered to do my whole routine. But I keep these in my handbag, my makeup bag and I love these for when I swatch. They take everything off the first time and they don’t leave a ton of liquid behind so you have to rinse after using them.

jnf3

Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s the Lotus Biscoff & Go Cookie Butter and Breadsticks. I am a lover of Biscoff, it’s my favorite cookie butter and the actual Biscoff cookies are delicious. I will throw one of these in my handbag along with a granola bar of some sort as a snack and call it good. They’re the perfect little snack and not overly sweet. If you haven’t tried them or the Biscoff cookies, I highly recommend them.

jnf1

Next, I have two kind of random favorites. The first is IMSA. You guys know how much I love the IMSA series and they just kicked off their season with the 24 Hours of Daytona. It was a great race with cautions and a ridiculous amount of rain that resulted in two red flags, one of which ended the race early. I can’t wait for the rest of the season, I can tell it’s going to be a good one.

And my second random favorite is organization. A few weeks ago I decided to reorganize my makeup collection and to do that I needed bigger storage, which I was able to find and since doing that I’ve been super happy with it. And I decided, come spring I’m going to be doing some bigger projects.

Finally, I have a couple of music favorites, two Robbie Williams songs. The first is I just Want People To Like Me and the second is Gold. These are from the upcoming album Under The Radar Vol 3, which comes out on February 14th. The thing about Robbie Williams is he can do any genre and it’s still undeniably him. I Just Want People To Like Me is more pop and Gold is what I would call 80’s style. These are both such good songs, and I can’t wait to hear the whole album.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your January favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you all had a great January :).

Erin Condren Life Planner Review

Hi everyone,

Happy New Year! I hope that you guys are having a good year so far. I enjoyed the break but I’m happy to be back. And today I’m going to be talking about something I’m really excited about and that is my Erin Condren Life Planner. If you guys read my December Favorites, there was a little section where I talked about what I got for Christmas and within that there were three things that are getting their own post, and this is one of them. So, let’s get into it.

I consider myself a pretty organized person, but this bumps it up to the next level and for that I’m excited. The planner that I got is the Metallic Painted Petals Life Planner in Turquoise and Platinum. It’s in the vertical layout and it does have my name on the front.

ecp1

ecp2

ecp3

When you open it it says You Have Everything Inside You To Be And Do Anything You Want, which I think is a great message.

ecp10

Then there’s an overview of the last couple months of 2018 and all of 2019 and twelve boxes, which I have assigned to a month.

ecp4

ecp5

At the beginning of each month there is a different saying and the one for January is What You Seek Is Seeking You and each month is colored differently.

ecp6

Then you have a calendar layout of each month and this one you’ll notice is from different months because I wrote some stuff on the other side of January before I took pictures. And there is a place for notes and a preview of the next month on the side.

ecp7

ecp8

After the calendar style layout, you have the week laid out for you with three boxes each day and space to write notes at the bottom and the side.

ecp9

When you get to the back of the planner, after the months, you have four lined pages to write notes, four pages of dots and three coloring pages.

ecp11

ecp12

ecp13

The next thing you have a page for contacts and an overview of 2020 with space for notes/goals

ecp14

ecp15

I somehow forgot to take a picture of this, but there’s a page that says Arriving At One Goal Is The Start Of Another. Then four pages of stickers,

ecp18

The last section of the planner is folder pockets. One side is deep and the other is shorter and it says Shine Your Brightest. In the folder came a pink Perpetual calendar.

ecp19

ecp20

ecp21

ecp22

This planner came with a plastic pouch called the Plan For It Pouch. In the pouch was a 20% off card, which I did use because I bought some pens, compliment cards, gift labels and a clip. The clip is plastic and if you want you can stick to the pouch and clip it into your planner. Which I love, so convenient.

ecp16

ecp17

That about wraps it up for this post, I can’t wait to really start using this and I’d love to know, are you guys planner people or do you like some other method?

Until next time, happy planning and here’s to a great 2019 :).
