lookin' at 2020 like:

i love the end of the year. it's hopeful and exciting and rejuvenating in a refining way. i look back at 2019 (and since it's a special kind of looking back since we're closing off the decade) at the falls and growth that i've experienced. and it's humbling to come out of it with a grateful and positive heart. i've learned to get out of my comfort zone, have more fun, be less judgmental, speak my mind, embrace laziness and self-care, and yada yada yada. 

we really don't know what the next year or 10 years will bring, but my gut is telling me that it'll be good. real good. cheers for what is ahead! whatever it may be, i hope we can tackle them with grace and have fun while doing it!

new year, new planner

i'm a huge planner. something i've been anticipating to get into and didn't know how or what worked best for me. luckily, i developed the habit on my mission and when i got back i was obsessed with scheduling out my day and was in search for a planner that absolutely called out to me. and i found them! (note: it's good to find your own groove! so take what you like from me and make it all you!)

my planner:

i love using Rifle Paper Co's planners!

  • their planner covers never disappoint, and they come in multiple options and styles so you aren't limited to just one type of planner 
  • i looove the weekly layout where it allows you to write things down in a bullet system, or allow you to check things off as needed 
  • their font styles aren't overbearing, they classy. 
  • and my pens don't bleed through the pages!


my stationary:
i adore using stickers and washi tape on my planner. i used to have this feeling that i was "wasting" my stickers or unsure of what sticker should go where. basically i was overthinking it that now i just plop them anywhere and all of a sudden it was no longer an issue, haha. 
  • i place my stickers on my weekly and monthly layout basically anywhere i want or where they make sense to the planned event or occasion
  • i use my washi tape to cover any cancelled plans or mess up's so atleast it looks cute and decorated 
  • note that rifle paper co planners come with pretty stickers THAT are sooo easy to remove so they're basically re-usable, so A+ 
  • the gold clip is a divider that i use to help me get to my week quicker (i bought it at target)
  • i've been using this kate spade pencil pouch for years, it's small enough to fit my essentials and keeps everything organized for me 


my pens: 
and this pen is THE pen. i swear by this pen and i also buy them in bulk because i have this fear that it'll be gone forever so i gotta stock up somehow. the Zebra Sarasa pen with a 0.7 point allows me to write smoothly, doesn't blot through the page, and i absolutely love how thick it comes out. you think i write all cute? well i owe it to this pen, honestly. 



keeping the planner going throughout the year can be hard and un-motivating, but i've found it fun and almost relieving to take a specific time out of the week, to sit down and plan out my next week. it def. gets me pumped for what's ahead! whatever you do in your planning, do what works best for you! make it a space where you write out your goals, note down quotes, jot out your grocery lists, etc! 

happy planning & happy-almost-2020!
