Day Designer Planner Review and Giveaway

Day Designer PlannerPlanning and productivity are very important to me. Everyone knows I enjoy all things planner related. As a busy mother, decorator, organizer, blogger, and YouTuber, I’m always looking for tools to help me create balance in my life. When Whitney English Day Designer and Blue Sky collaborated to make an affordable and functional planner, I immediately wanted to review one and offer a few to my subscribers. This particular Day Designer can be purchased at Target. Target offers several different planner options from pocket size to a desk pad.

The cover

I absolutely love the striped black and white cover on this planner. The cover is hard bound and durable. The spiral coils are gold and is a great contrast to the cover. The monthly tabs are laminated and does not stick beyond the cover.

Pages 1 & 2

DDCalendar

The first page shows a two year at a glace reference. This is excellent for a brief overview of two years. The second page displays “The Story” of the planner. It contains a letter and information from Whitney English, Day Designer Creator and Founder and Jim Freeman, Blue Sky Founder and CEO.

Start with The Big Picture & Set Your Goals

Day Designer 1 & 2

This page is where you can write down the important things in your life such as your goals, ideas, and aspirations. I think this section is great to really look and revisit the “big picture.”

I absolutely love the idea of being able to set multiple goals. The specific goals listed are “Personal Goals”, “Family, Friends, & Relationship Goals”, “Heart & Spirit Goals”, “Financial Goals”, and “Work, Career, or Study Goals.” There is also an “Accomplish By” section for each goal. This is good for annotating either your projected completion date or the date you actually completed your goal.

Design Your Days & Stay On Course

DD34

In order for me to have a productive day, I must plan my morning and evening routines. I love the idea of being able to plan my everyday activities in this section. The Stay on Course section is great for keeping track of important milestones. You can review your course throughout the week, month, or year. This allows you to do whatever works for you.

Monthly View

DDMonthly

The monthly view is printed on a two page spread. It has a section for monthly “to do & notes.” It also shows the previous month and upcoming month. Holidays are indicated with a little page flag as a reminder. I love being able to see my entire month at one time. Each block is lined. This feature is great for me.

Weekly View

The weekly view is also on a two page spread in a vertical style. I love the “Today’s Top Three” section for each day. By focusing on the most important things, you may be able to accomplish them more effectively. Each week also contains an inspirational quote. The daily schedule is listed in one hour increments from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm. Although it’s listed in the hourly increments, you can be creative and do what works best for you. The bottom section of the day is listed as “Tonight.” Feel free to list your evening activities. You can also use this section as a meal planner or to track your water intake. The last section is for gratitude, notes, and next week.

Blank Pages

DDNotes

There are 11 lined empty pages which you may use for notes.

Holiday Calendar

DDHolidays

A list of all holidays and some important dates are listed in the back of the planner.

Overall, I am very pleased with this planner. It is an excellent option for anyone wanting to design their day and increase productivity.

Erin Condren Collection and Erin Condren Life Planner Giveaway

Banner

As a Certified Interior Decorator and Professional Organizer, I searched long and hard to find a planner that would work great for my busy and hectic schedule. Last year I discovered Erin Condren and it was love at first sight. (Cue the Butterflies)… Now, I currently own a small collection of Erin Condren items.

Monthlypl

I use my personal Life Planner to plan all aspects of my life. From doctors appointments to shopping trips to household chores… Everything is written down. There is something about paper and ink that is totally reliable to me. I don’t have to worry about hitting ignore on a cell phone reminder and forgetting about it. I carry my Life Planner with me EVERYWHERE….

My son is a senior in high school. I have an Erin Condren Notebook specifically for him. I use it to track all activities and events for his senior year. It stays on my desk but we do take it to the monthly senior meetings at his school. Inside of his notebook I keep information concerning senior activities, college information, college trips, scholarship info, etc…

I absolutely love my fitness life planner. I use it to record my fitness, nutrition, monitor my steps and calories lost, and meal plan. If I achieve my daily goal, I award myself with a happy sticker for the day!!!

I’m going to use a separate notebook for my budget and finances… This is still a work in progress.

Planner

I absolutely love the Erin Condren Teacher Planner. I completely customized it to use for my small business. I can completely plan and outline my social media, appointments, customer contacts, etc… I also keep many of my important business documents in the planner.

Since I keep my Teacher Planner in my home office, I carry a designated Erin Condren Deluxe notebook with me when I’m at appointments or meetings. I love being able to customize the cover.

I am truly enjoying my Erin Condren experience. If you have an Erin Condren, I would love to hear how you use it.. Please comment below.

PenGems Review and Giveaway

pens

We have recently discovered PenGems and are in love. Why should we be forced to carry dull writing tools? Our pens and stylus should be as Divine as ourselves… PenGems are just that. As a paper person, I take pride in the pens I write with. PenGems crystal pens and stylus pens are not only stylish, they are very functional. The 1/2 ounce  pen writes smoothly and its easy to hold. It has a 0.7 mm point and pocket clip. Each pen contains at least 120 crystals. With each pen purchase, you will receive a free ink refill. What an eco-friendly option!! Instead of tossing a pen when the ink runs out, simply replace the ink!!! PenGems come in 24 different colors and a rainbow option.

The Stylus PenGems are an absolute must for your touch screen devices. Its time to eliminate those finger marks and smudges on your cell phones and tablets. I recommend purchasing multiple colors to match your cell phone, tablet, and/or planner cases.

S

For the stylish student, PenGems make excellent graduation gifts. Purchase a set in school colors to show school spirit. PenGems can be also used to match your diva’s purse, nail polish, or wardrobe.

We are so excited to be able to giveaway a set of beautiful PenGems. In addition to the PenGems, we are also giving away a pen holder and a Divine Elements of Design VIP membership.
