Sorry for not blogging in forever! I’ve been kind of busy with a ton of stuff but then not really busy if that makes sense. My mom was in the hospital for 2 weeks in May and it kind of just threw my blogging schedule off track. It’s also hard doing stuff on my own since it’s just me now. Family came into town a couple of times, but it was still just me 85% of the time. My mom is doing better now but still not 100%. I just hope she gets there soon.

During my time off from work (while my mom was in the hospital), I took some time for myself. I met up with Nikki a few times and did some shopping. We both really got into planners lately and I have an addiction to Happy Planner and Erin Condren now (use my EC link to get $10 off your first purchase). I’ll be posting more about my planner stuff soon.

Family came into town over the holiday as well and I’ll do a separate post about that. I just wanted to check in and say hi! Hoping to get back into the swing of things again. Missed blogging!

Weekend Recap


Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I didn’t do too much but wanted to recap what I did do. On Saturday, my mom and I had a mani/pedi appointment. I got a rose color which is what I was wanting. I wanted something neutral this time around. I got a slightly darker color on my toes. After that, I went to AT&T to have them replace my cover of my phone then I headed over to Michael’s. I got a cute holder for my planner that holds washi tape. After that, we were hungry and we were craving Thai. We wanted to go to our favorite place in Fremont called Sala Thai but they were closed so we ended up at Banh Thai. It was good, but not as good as Sala Thai.

Sunday, I just relaxed most of the day. I had a photoshoot appointment with Taylor at Morcom Rose Garden. The place was so beautiful. I can’t wait to see how the pictures turn out. Stay tuned for that!

That was pretty much my weekend. What did you all do for your weekend?

Custom Planner and DIY Project

Custom Planner and DIY Project
So this past weekend, I went to Michaels and got a new planner by Recollections. They had different colored binders (brown, black, and white), covers for the binders, and different books to put in the binders. Some of the books they had were: journal, schedule, calendar, menu, travel, budget, to do. I ended up getting schedule, journal, and to do. I also got some stickers and dividers for it as well. I knew I wanted to use this for blogging so I figured those would fit my needs the best.

They came in notebook style books for each book. They were pre punched, however, I didn’t like how it looked because of the book binding. It made it look too split up. So I decided to take apart the binding and put together a custom planner. It took me about 45 minutes to do it all but the end result is amazing. I also made a few extra dividers for it and am excited to make more stuff to put in this binder. I can’t wait to start using it and filling it up with a bunch of ideas for my blog.

Do you use a planner for your blog? Did you make your own or buy a planner?
