Check out my YouTube video to see how I'm using it!
And the most exciting part! 
Lisa has generously offered to giveaway a voucher to one of you to make your own planner! 
Enter below! xo





UPDATES:

In the video, I mistakenly said Lisa is the owner, but she is the Marketing Manager in the US. The owners are Anders and Paula Lundberg, and they both live on a farm in Sweden. Here's how Lisa tells the story: 

Their story of how Personal Planner was born is actually pretty cute. Paula, who was a student, complained to her husband Anders that all the planners she saw in the store were boring. So Anders designed and printed a planner just for her! Paula shared it on her blog, people loved it, and Anders started making planners in the basement to other people who asked for personalized planners. After a couple of months Anders was swamped with orders and he quit his job to fully focus on this. This was 2006, and today we are sending planners to all over the world! :)

Also, GOOD NEWS! Personal Planner will soon offer a monthly view! How's that for customer service!

DISCOUNT CODE:
And even more good news! Lisa and the team at Personal Planner is offer 15% discount code!

Fall Favorites

Obviously this is my most favorite time of year. The air, the fashion, the pumpkins. I can't get enough. Here's a look at three of my current favorite things for Fall 2014

 Omg this gray couch with black and white and leopard and touches of gold. LOVE.


 Neutrals have taken over my entire closet. Add some fur and I'm a happy girl. 
Insert the smily face with RayBans emoji...


This combines two of my obsessions: Vivianna Does Makeup and a darker brown nude lip. 

What are three things you're loving lately?

Gold & Silver Filofax Original!!

I know I've said this a million times before, but I've always been a paper planner girl. I always loved getting a new planner, even if it wasn't the beginning of the year, and filling it in with important dates and to-dos. I've fallen in love with various planners over time, but these two are BY FAR my most favorite ever. I love Gold. I love the Filofax Original. I love these planners!!

I also ended up ordering the silver Filofax Original as well because I knew I would regret it if I didn't it. It was a bit of process to get these in, but totally worth it. 
What do you guys think? Aren't they beautiful?! x

Flip through of the new ban.do 2014 - 2015 planner!

You guys!! This new planner / agenda from ban.do is seriously the cutest I've ever seen! Y'all know by now that I'm pretty much addicted to planners, agendas and organizational tools. There's just something about moving into a fresh new planner with pretty, clean pages. #crazylady

Anyway, I love ban.do --- it's such a colorful, whimsical brand. Remember the poufs that got them started? A lot of the aesthetic reminds me of Kate Spade. As soon as I saw the agenda, I knew I had to have it. I honestly don't know how much I will actually use it (again…. #crazylady) but I just had to have it. 
For me, it's not the most practical because it's designed like a book (as opposed to with rings or spiral binding) so it doesn't lay super flat (not too bad either though) 
I'm not usually drawn to much color or whimsy (that's why I never jumped onto the Erin Condren Life Planner bandwagon) but for some reason I just couldn't resist this one.

Really I just wanted it to look through and use for a little while. As many of you know, I've alternated between using my Filofax Original in patent nude and my beloved Sugar Paper LA for Target calendar.
Here's a quick look through the book -- you will love it!!




Isn't it sooooo cute?!
Let me know if you order one!

B.O.R.N. to Style


You guys!! It's been a seriously long time since I've been this excited about a TV show but I cannot wait for the premiere of B.O.R.N. to Style on the FYI Network. Truth be told, I don't have much time to actually sit down and watch TV so I'm very picky about what I do make time to watch….and this show is definitely top of my list. I LOVE makeover shows and I think this one will turn out to be king of them all. I mean how can you not love these fierce & fashion-forward stylists who are making over clients in their store in Harlem?!

Any guesses what B.O.R.N. stands for?!

Check out the trailer to find out!


As the fellas say, 'It's a store with attitude.'
And the show tagline? B.O.R.N. to Style: Your Makeover Needs a Makeover.
So genius!! Fabulous, huh?

B.O.R.N. to Style promises to be hilarious and inspirational, which in my book is a winning combo. It's a lifestyle makeover series centered on this fierce team from New York, and their larger than life boss, Jonathan Bodrick, who has been styling people since the age of five. #cutiepie 
The stylists actually land at the door of those desperately in need of some “color in their lives.”  By rifling through their client’s belongings and asking blunt questions, the team at B.O.R.N. gets to the root of their fashion malaise, before whisking them away for a transformation that goes beyond just their look. Love it.

Besides their fierce boss, the show also features these fabulous stylists: cosmetologist turned personal stylist Brandon Hood, style street photographer JJ Langan, makeup artist and fashion lover Kristen Brown, store manager Terry Artis and self-professed class clown Devin Stokes.

Here's the most important thing you need to know: 

B.O.R.N. to Style premieres 
Tuesday, 7/15 @ 10p EST, on FYI Network

I'm so excited about the launch of FYI Network as well!
I know I'll be watching (most likely in PJs on my couch but shhh!) and would love to know what you think of the show! Let's make a date to meet on Twitter on the 15th to discuss! 


XOXO



Disclosure: This post was sponsored by FYI Network through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about B.O.R.N. to Style, all opinions are my own. I would never share something I didn't truly love. Obviously.

Review + Swatches | New! Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

I'm a neutrals girl. In my wardrobe and my makeup. And my home for that matter. I like the look of crisp lines in clean colors with an occasional pop. 

For everyday, my makeup is always neutral lips and neutral eyes (smoky eyes are my go-to for special occasions) So I'm always on the hunt for the perfect eyeshadow. I want to wear something on my lids, but I don't want any crazy colors or anything too dark. I've been considering purchasing one of the Urban Decay Naked palettes but was hesitant to spend $50 on an entire palette that I would probably only use a few of the colors. So I was thrilled when I saw the new Maybelline The Nudes eyeshadow palette on Andrea Matillano's Instagram last week. I went to a major hunt to find it --- Wal-Mart, Ulta, CVS, Walgreens -- no where had it yet. But I finally found it at my Target! So if you're on a mission to find it, try there. I was particularly excited because I love drugstore makeup and this palette was only $10!
Check out my video to see my first impressions and review of the product as well as swatches. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality!

And let me know if you pick up this palette and how you like it! x
