    Daily Morning Routine Checklist

    So, guys!  I’ve got an update and another free printable of my new daily morning routine checklist.

    If you’ve been following along on my Instagram, or here,  you’ve seen that I started a new morning routine on this week. I am here to report it went quite well and I’m loving the results so far.

    I won’t’ lie, it was a bit of a struggle getting up at 5:00 a.m. when my husband gets up for work. But doing it with someone does help! I did pop out the bed at 5:00 a.m. It took a little while to get up but what matters is, I did! I was dressed and showered before 7:00 a.m. each day. Which was great since my little one wakes up between 7:30 – 8:00 a.m. It also knew I needed to track it, instead of tracking it in my planner I posted it to my Insta-story. This was for accountability purposes. I knew if I shared it with everyone, it would push me even harder to get it done and it worked!

    Monthly Planner Subscription Box Review


    Monthly subscription boxes are the jam right now. I recently became a part of The Stationary Muse PR Team and thought I should do a quick unboxing video on the Live. Love. Inspire. monthly planner subscription box. All I can say is, I’m thoroughly impressed!


    A Lifestyle Item: This varies with each box. The September box I reviewed came with a personalized Tote Bag. Prior boxes have included T-shirts, pencil pouches, etc. The tote bag is durable and I really liked seeing my initial on it. 🙂


    Stationary Item: My box included a full notebook pictured below. This item is a handmade item and I loved the quality of the notebook and the adorable message that went with The Pampered Planner theme of the box. Read more…


    How to Plan a Good Morning Routine


    Do you feel like you don’t start the day off right? Maybe you just need a little help planning a good morning routine.

    I’ll be the first to admit, mornings are tough for me. Working from home makes it a little harder to get a good start each day. I don’t have a job to get to at 9 a.m. I can literally roll out of bed and turn on my laptop. Well, not exactly. I have to roll out of bed, feed my daughter, keep her entertained, take her to Preschool, and then get to work. So where do I fit in time for me? Usually not until about 9 p.m., if I’m lucky.

    I’ve learned when I do take time to plan out my mornings and get out of bed early enough, I am super productive through out the day. I, like everyone else, fall off of routines all the time. But you know what, that’s OK! Each day is a new day. Each day we have the chance to start over again.

    I decided to get myself back on a track and start to work in some time for myself and my health each day. Here’s what I did to plan a good morning and evening routine.



    What is most important for you to add into your morning routine? What do you want to accomplish each morning? Maybe you want to get up early to exercise or meditate. Or, maybe you want to plan your day out and get in a shower alone. Make a short list of things you want to fit in each morning. And list them in order of importance. Then choose 2-3 things.  Read more…

    Free Printable Bucket List for Fall

    Who needs a fall bucket list????! Me! And of course, you!  Are you not super excited that fall is almost here?! I’m clearly hyped about it. I even decided I needed a fall bucket list for my planner so I don’t miss a beat this fall.

    If you can’t already tell, fall is my favorite time of year. Bring on the warm cozy sweaters, hazelnut hot chocolate, pumpkins, decorating; just bring it all on!

    Sometimes we want to do a ton of activities each new season but hey, life can sometimes get in the way right? But, if you have a handy bucket list; you have a better chance of scheduling in those activities each week or month.

    I created this adorable Fall Bucket List with a lot of fall activities that I think most “fall-lovers” enjoy too!

    Back to School Tips for College Students


    Back to School can be both an exciting and hectic time for most college students. I remember those days very clearly and although I looked forward to buying school supplies and a new planner every year; I still got the bubble guts just thinking about how I was going to fit in all my assignments, internships and work each week! 

    Well, two degrees, 2 internships, and 8 years of college later, I can tell you, it’s possible! With the right planning and prioritizing, you can definitely get there. It won’t be easy, but you can at least feel at ease if you try your best to plan accordingly. Here are some tips that definitely helped me get through my college years.


    plan ahead

    You will most likely receive your syllabus a head of time for the majority of your classes. As you receive your syllabuses, sit down and take the time to place all the important dates for each class in your planner immediately. Even if the first exam is 6 weeks away, do it! This will give you a clear vision of when you’ll need to start prepping study guides, study groups, etc. 

    If you’d like to learn more about how I plan ahead for life, check out this post when you’re done here.
