October- What I’m loving

I thought I would share with you some of the items I have been enjoying for the month of  October!

Candles

I bought so many fall smelling candles from Bath and Body Works I can’t even begin to pick and choose which ones are my favorites but I do really liking Evening Hearth (can’t find on the web site), Autumn woods & Sweater Weather.

New shoes

Who doesn’t love new shoes because I know I do.  I got 2 new pairs of Champion Gusto from Payless when they had a BOGO sale. I picked the Grey jersey/ coral and Turquoise/black. In total with tax I only paid $39. Not bad for 2 pairs. I love the Turquoise pair, its such a fun color!

Things I’m Loving Right NowThings I’m Loving Right Now

New phone

For the last few months now I have been wanting to upgrade my Iphone 7. Well we  finally did it! I upgraded to the new iPhone XS and picked the gold color and my husband picked out the space gray. I. LOVE. IT. The camera is awesome. Its a little odd not having a home button and keeps throwing me off but I’ll live.

Skincare & Haircare

For hair I have been reaching for Evo Salty Dog Salt Spray and Not Your Mothers Girl Powder Volumizing Hair Powder. I really like this combo together with Design.Me Hair Fab.Me which is a 18 in 1 leave in treatment. Hask Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo is a favorite dry shampoo of mine and will be buying a third bottle soon. It leaves little to none white residue when applying. Garnier Fructis Deconstructed Pixie Play has been a staple of mine for the last four years since I went pixie. It does not make your hair greasy, unless you use too much. It is a must for me.

Right now for skincare  I’m loving the aloe, herbs and rosewater facial spray from Mario Badescu. It smalls so good! I use this in the morning before I put any primer on for my makeup and after I take off all my makeup at night before I apply my moisturizer. I have been using to set my makeup too! Neutrogena Healthy Skin Glow Sheers I like on days that I don’t really want to wear makeup but want to wear a little something.

Happy Planner Update

My lineup has changed a bit since the last time I wrote about my Happy Planners. I start out with  having 3 for 2018. It took me a bit of time to figure out how I want to use my planners but I think I have it figured out now and in a way that works. I now know that Im a horizontal planner. I have no issue with filling the space up unlike vertical planning, my brain just stops working.

Keep Bright and Beautiful Mini. This mini is now my social planner. Before I started using it as my on the go planner but I feel that I don’t really need a on the go planner. I was using my modern chic classic sized planner but decided to go for a smaller planner because I felt I had to much space and not enough to fill in the boxes.

Modern Chic classic is more or less my spiritual planner or faith planner as others call it. I write down affirmations or quotes from books I’m reading. It was social media planner for a few months but it wasn’t working out and I had way to much white space and I felt I was wasting it.

Agate Classic is used for my tarot readings and anything witchy. I was using this one for my catch all/memory planning/wellness/ tarot reading and it was to much and I had to break it down a bit. This is my only vertical planner and it works out for the type of card decks I pull daily. I pull a tarot card, oracle card and a affirmation card for each day and there are three  boxes for each of those days.

Enjoy All the Things classic is now my catch all  planner I use it for shopping lists, bills, work and more. Simple enough.

Life Is An Amazing Adventure Memory Keeping. I finally broke down and got the actual BIG memory keeping planner. I am so excited to start this one for the month of October!

So that is 5 planners for the rest of 2018 and into 2019. I think I found my planner peace.
