As a mom of three kids, a YouTuber, and a blogger... things can get busy real quick having this lifestyle. I love my life and everything I do, but things can get south if they are not planned and organized. When things go south, that's when it gets messy and stress knocks at your door! For example, these next couple of weeks is filled with events such as video planning, writing blogs, my daughter's birthday, Christmas shopping, AND Christmas! I always, always write down blog priorities, events, and appointments for the month to keep my family and my life sane and organized. Year 2016 is almost over and my blue sky planner has come to its end. I'm ready for 2017, and Start Planner, who I named Donutini, will have my back for the coming year.
This Start Planner is called the Hustle Daily Planner, and before I show you some features of this planner... can we just please admire this color? I promise you, by the end of 2017, whenever you see me, the color mint will welcome you, too. This beautiful spiral daily planner is smaller in length and width, but thicker than the mainstream which is AWESOME for travel. I love that it has a little elastic fabric to keep the planner together. I'm a klutz, so I'm sure I will drop this sometime in the year but at least the planner will fall intact!
We as women NEED inspiration and I LOVE how this has encouraging quotes as you go through life. "Nothing will work unless you do." So true, so honest, and so inspiring. It has a yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily tabs and pages that makes planning much easier. As I was going through the planner, I saw so many helpful areas where it reminds you of season cleaning, home chores and tasks, prioritizing, budget planning, vacation plans and more. It is so amazing and I'm just beyond thankful to have this handy for next year.
Monthly overviews are my favorite feature of any planner because it is easy to see what I have coming for the month. I also color code with the days I film and upload my content for YouTube, blog posts, and family events. You see the different colored markers in the beginning of my post and this truly helps a TON. January is always a busy month filled with birthdays and I love how I can start keeping them organized here. I'm ready for 2017, ready for January even though I could be biased since it's my birthday month. Is anyone scared of getting older? For some reason, i LOVE it. Maybe in nine years when I turn forty, I probably won't feel the same.
This cute little bag comes with the planner and it's intended to keep your planner in pristine condition when you travel. I love that it is in a neutral color as well. It's such a neat idea that they included this bag since this planner is literally SO BEAUTIFUL, I mean, this planner will be your LIFE, so it needs to be safe! Now, remember when I said I named my planner... I'm not ashamed because she will be my best friend in 2017. My goal for the year 2017 is to keep true to my plans every single week for my blog. I enjoy blogging and creating videos, but at times, life can be so busy that it interacts with my initial plan. With this, I will reach my goal and to keep growing as a blogger. 2017 will be a big year because like Start Planner said... Nothing will work unless you DO, so I'm GONNA DO!
