Cacti, a lot of dirt, 100 degrees. Yup I am definitely back in Arizona. Happy Wednesday Xo
OMG, only 3 more days left of summer… I don’t think I’m ready for this!! Last week when I got back from my summer in Chicago, I realized I didn’t have much time until I was going to be busy with school work so I got on top of making all my appointments and thank god I had a planner to write it all down and keep straight.
Yes I did say a planner… I do understand iPhones have a calander and it’s super easy to add events, but I am someone who HAS to see things written down! But of course a boring planner is just not going to cut it for me, so here’s a couple things I like to do to make my planner different and make organizing in a planner a little more fun!
I found this basic (but super cute) planner at target and thought I could totally make this even cuter, with adding a touch of fringe! So keep reading to learn how to make back to school organizing a little more fun! Above are the things you’ll need, all from Target!
I bought my tassel, but if you can’t find one or they don't come in the color you like, they are super easy to make and here’s a great tutorial for you all from Lula Louise!
Anyways to start, I got my tassels and tied it to the side of my planner! Doesn’t get any easier than that!
I love washi tape and found these fun colors and patterns and thought they a perfect alternative for highlighters! I thought it would also be fun to cut little arrows to point to put next to a few of my appointments! There are so many fun printed washi tape and they just bring a little life to any planner! I also like using post it notes for when I need to add in some info, like for my doctors appointment I looked up the address and put it on a post it note and just placed it by the appointment time!
The washi tape is also great for the monthly calendars for when you have to make note of a long period of time, for instance, fall break!! Can you tell I’m already counting down the days for a couple days off of school!? LOL.
Comment and let me know if you have any other fun ideas to make back to school organizing a little more fun! Happy first week of school for all you that are starting school this week!! Xo
Living in Chicago this summer I learned very quickly that even though it was summer time, an umbrella (or rain jacket!) needed to be with me at all times! So when K-Way, an awesome and chic rain jacket brand, reached out about a blogger style off I was all in! I am a sucker for brights, so this cool blue jacket paired with a white dress and high boots was the perfect outfit for a rainy day in the city! The jacket is absolutley adorable, and the built in storage bag is a bonus!
You can win your own K-Way rain jacket by heading over to the K-Way Facebook page and "like" one of the blogger style pictures! Here is my style pic, if you have a sec to like it here, I would be oh so grateful!! Happy Friday, hope you have a fabulous weekend Xo
Probably my favorite part about being in Chicago this summer, is being only a hour and a half away from Milwaukee, WI where my parents moved almost exactly a year ago today! They live in this super hip historic part of the city called The Third Ward, where they can walk to just about everything! Every corner there is a cool new coffee shop and one street after another is full of lively resaurants nd bars! I remember the first time visiting and realized why they never wanted to leave! I love coming to visit them, mostly because of the company, but also love finding cool new spots in the area!
If you ever find yourself in the area, a few favorite spots: Colectivo for coffee, The Comet Cafe for breakfast, The Public Market for fresh food, Antiques on Second for good antiquing, Cafe Centraal for a good patio dinner, & Wicked Hops for drinks
