There are a few things that a gal can never have enough of (heels, handbags, and tights are definitely a few of them!). As a proud supporter of PantherLegWear.com, I wanted to share a fun little giveaway with you guys: A two-month subscription to Panther Legwear! And there will be five winners!
A two-month subscription to Panther Legwear gets you eight pairs of designer tights (a value of $120!). What a great giveaway, no?
I consider myself to be pretty organized. I like routine, and I always feel so much better when I write out my day (i.e, work schedule, to-do lists, blog posts etc.). Over the years, I’ve used several different methods– from paper agendas to iCalendar on my iPad. I’m too ashamed to tell you how much money I’ve spend on different agendas (and just to forget about them a few weeks later)… I could never find the right one for me. Well, until I found the “Life Planner” from ErinCondren.com that is!
The Erin Condren Life Planner is one of my favourite products, and I highly recommend it! Not only are they customizable (you can pick from several designs and colours– you can even add personal photos and your name on the front!), but they are super efficient!
I purchased my first Life Planner last year, in January. I was crossing my fingers and toes, hoping that I would actually use it throughout the entire year and not just for a month or so (and I did use it! Every day!).
One thing I love about the life planner are the inspiring quotes and neat designs you’ll find throughout the planner. I’m really liking the bows in my 2014 planner:
I’m such a big fan of the Life Planner (you can read my first review here), that the Erin Condren team sent me a 2014 Life Planner to review a few months ago! (Thank you so much you guys!).
This year, I decided to add on the customized stickers! Picking your stickers is so easy! You just go through your computer and select which photos to turn into stickers. I thought it would make my planner a little more interesting ;) I ended up making stickers of Ken and I (for our anniversary, Valentine’s Day etc), my dogs, Christmas stuff, etc. How fun, right?
I’m also pleased that they have added more colours to the additional stickers that come with each life planner. Take a look below– they’re all little stickers! I use these guys for deadlines, paydays, important dates, etc.
At the back of the life planner, you’ll find a little “folder” section where you can store a few documents. In the 2013 life planner, there was only the one “folder.” But the Erin Condren team decided to add TWO “folders” this year so it’s very easy to “keep it together” ;) See:
One other neat feature in the Erin Condren Planner is the clear plastic folder in the very back. I keep my printed work schedules in there, my prescriptions, important receipts, and so on.
If you’re thinking about purchasing an Erin Condren Life Planner, check out these comments that I received on my earlier Life Planner reviews:
I purchased my first EC Life Planner, received last Friday. I LOVE IT! I splurged on the Gold Edition in hot pink. Perfect for work and personal tasks, looks absolutely lovely. I don’t even have to do a lot of decorating (compared to my Personal size Filofax) because its already beautiful. I do have a few suggestions for them which is making it unbound to put in a leather binder and the pen loop to be in different colors (white elastic already getting dirty). –LalaBoobaby
From your recommendation, it inspired me recently to purchase the EC Life Planner. I ordered it December 23rd and it arrived today, January 2nd. Talk about **fast** service! So can I tell you how thrilled I am to have such a beautiful planner in my possession? I’m doing the happy dance. Keep going with your vlog! It’s great to read what other Canadians have to say! A new fan. –Jennifer M
I am on my 3rd year of using the Life Planner, I LOVE it! With my schedule, my husband & 4 busy boys to keep track of it is a life saver, I hardly ever use the printed stickers that come with the planner but this year I ordered many sheets of the personalized stickers in different colors for each family member…I am pretty sure I will continue to purchase one each year, unless I can find another planner that I can personalize, that’s as good quality and cheaper (not likely). –Daisy10727

I’m not a huge fan of January (…or February). I mean, I always find the month right after Christmas quite depressing… and then you still have the snow and freezing temperatures (we’re talking about -30 degrees in Toronto right now!). Not cool. At all.
To keep my chin up during these two very cold months, I like to indulge in a few of my favourites, aka life’s little treasures. These may not seem like much, but they actually put a huge smile on my face!
There are emails in my inbox that I ignore and send straight to the trash (like, the majority of them). Then, there are emails I open immediately. Emails from Kate Spade and Sephora? Yep, they have my complete attention!
It’s probably a little odd, but my favourite type of blog posts are definitely the “what’s in my bag,” “what’s in my wallet,” and “what’s in my Agenda” ones! Am I just plain nosey, or is this a girl thing? …Or both? ;)
Marilou is an Ottawa-based fashion blogger, and blogs over at TwentyYork.com. She has been regularly published and/or featured at Ottawa Citizen, Daytime Ottawa, WHERE Ottawa, Ottawa Valley Moms, FAJO Magazine, FAVE, BHBB Ottawa, and the Next Big Thing Magazine! (Impressive, huh?). Let’s not forget that Marilou has also been featured in my “OOTD Around Ottawa” post ;)
To keep up with her hectic schedule (consisting of her full-time job, her blog, television appearances, and yoga classes!), Marilou uses the 2014 Kate Spade 17 Month Agenda!
The 2014 Kate Spade agenda, I think, have become the most popular agenda on the market! Everyone has one! Not only can you get the Kate Spade agenda in “gold dots” (like Marilou’s), but it also comes in “Glasses” and “Rose.”
I’m a little envious– Marilou’s agenda it’s so neat and organized!
How do you stay organized? Do you use a paper agenda? If so, which one do you use?
Initially, I was going to post a review of my 2014 Erin Condren life planner (you can read my past reviews here and here!), but then I thought of a better idea! ;)
Kate Spade just recently came out with a new collection (it’s nautical-themed!), and my birthday is less than a month away (yikes!)… so why not celebrate a little early and host a KATE SPADE giveaway!!
The contest is open to both Canadian and American residents, and will end on Saturday, January 18th. Entering is super easy, and there are numerous ways you can enter! To enter, just use the Rafflecopter widget below– it will tell you exactly what to do! Good luck!
