Bath & Body Goodies!!!

Image
I love sales as I'm sure you all do too!!  So, when Bath & Body had their after Christmas sale, I went shopping!!  I originally ordered 3 body washes and 3 of the large 3 wick candles online, but when the package came in; 2 of the 3 candles were destroyed.  Not good!!  Fortunately, I was able to go to the store and exchange them.

The plan was to just grab another 2 candles - but that would be too easy!  No, me being me decided to "look around".  My looking cost me but I think I got some good deals!


I'm always looking for things to make my car smell good, so when I saw these clips at the store - I had to try them out!

I got these 2 on clearance - I'll be saving these for next Fall and Winter!

I only picked up 1 candle - since I grabbed so many other things. I'm loving this scent - I burn it ever time I'm working on my laptop since I keep it on my desk.

These 2 smelled really nice - I haven't used them yet as I'm still going through 1 of the 3 b…

kikki.K & Vera Bradley Shopping!!

This year I have many goals I want to accomplish and one of them is getting organized!  So I decided to start using planner again, but I quickly realized that I can't take my planner everywhere.  As you can see in this post, its too big to keep in my handbag all of the time.  I take it to work all of the time, but when I go shopping, I can't really keep it with me.  I had to come up with an idea to still keep something with me that would work with my planner but that I can take with me.  That's when I saw this vlog from Organized Jen where she reviewed the kikki.K planners.  I loved the look of these planners, but I already had one.  I went to the kikki.K website and decided to check them out, I was thinking that the smaller size would work for me.  I was in luck - it was on sale so I decided to buy it - along with a set of pens :)  I couldn't help it!


Love the look & how small it is - perfect for any of my handbags!

I did personalize it with some stickers I had.  …

Closet Cleanup!!!

Cleanup! I hate cleaning but I do love a clean and organized house, but sadly I struggle in keeping my home clean and organized.  One of my major problems is my closet.  I'll spend a whole day cleaning and after a few days its back to looking like my closet and drawers exploded!

So, one of my goals this year is to cleaning up and organizing every room in this house.....and keep it clean and organized!  I decided to start with my closet.  It was a disaster, but since its the smallest room and where I store the bulk of my things, I thought it be the best room to start!

Here is the before - a true disaster, I don't even know how I was able to walk in here and get dressed every morning:


Yea  - it was a mess - nothing was where it should be and I had piles & piles of stuff! Clothes, bags, shoes and just stuff all piled all over each other!

I took one day on the weekend and started early.  I took everthing out and dumped it on my bed - this helped me sort through everything.

It's Time for Change ~ Time to Plan!!!

Hi All!! I'm back and after having a month away from my blog I'm back with so many ideas!!
I want to add some more reviews, beauty product opinion posts, some organization posts(this will be a learning process as I'm not the most organized person), more travel and as always tons of family fun!!

Today I'll start with my new planner plans!  In the past couple years I've tried to keep my schedule, including my families' schedules, on my gmail calendar and ipad/iphone calendars.  They work fairly well, and I love that I get alerts but I wouldn't put everything down and I wouldn't look at it all the time so I'd lose track of things.  I also missed not having something to write in.  I always kept a planner, and I didn't write in it as much as I'd like, I did enjoy having it, writing my plans down and having something to flip through.

Here is my old planner, which I feel bad throwing away but don't think I'd use again:
