Planner Hop Dec 1st-15th

Yesterday I just happened to be going through my emails and I spotted a email from Anna from Herding Cats and Burning Soup talking about a planner hop that she was organizing with Lauren from Shooting Stars Mag so I had to go and check it out.

As some of you may or may not know I am a planner junkie and in the new year I want to start sharing more of my planner stuff on my blog in weekly posts.

If you want to know more about this planner hop be sure to go and check out Lauren’s blog post HERE.

They are looking for planner girls to join in on the hop so if you are a planner girl be sure to sign up. I did and I can’t wait to read the other bloggers posts and to share mine as well. I am hoping to get some inspiration during this time for my upcoming planner.

During the time period I will be doing a give away or two so be sure to come back and check it out.

Are you a planner girl? If so what kind of planner do you use? Do you decorate it? Do you blog about it, if so share your links below so I can go and check it out.


The Mailbox Post April 18th – 23rd

Its hard to believe its that time of the week for another mailbox post.
The hosts of the mailbox memes are:


Tynga’s Reviews is the host of Stacking the Shelves and the other host is Mailbox Monday which now has its own blog.

Mailbox Monday will no longer be hosted monthly by different bloggers.


I am also going to be taking part in the Bought, Borrowed and Bagged (BB&B) that is hosted by Frankie AKA Braine over at . This is a weekly meme where you share what books you have bought, borrowed or bagged (this would be books you won or that were gifted to you).


Good Saturday morning everyone. I hope you are all having a good start to the weekend. Its a beautiful sunny day here in my neck of the woods. The sun is out and its gradually starting to warm up, finally after this long cold winter we had, spring is finally here.

This week I only have one book to share with you and its this one:

Its No Where But Here by Katie McGarry. I got this with my harlequin reward pointsThis is my 5th free book since I started doing the Harlequin Rewards.

Another thing I got this week that is somewhat related to my blog is this:

Its my very first Erin Condren planner. I have been wanting one for quite some time but in all honesty I just couldn’t justify spending all the money on one because I have to factor in the exchange rate and duties. That was until now, Erin Condren is currently having a 50% sale on all their life planners. They are currently on sale from $22.50 to $32.50 USA. You can customize it to your liking.

Another thing that sweetened the deal for me was Jennifer from Jenn’s Bookshelves shared her referral code for $10 off and I am going to share mine with you in case you are interested in getting one for yourself. You can click HERE and it will take you there to get your $10 off. You must be a first time customer I believe in order for this to apply.

I should let you know that if you are in Canada and are planning on ordering it and having it shipped to Canada you will have to pay duties on it. Its shipped via UPS.

I am super excited to start working with this planner and decorating it. I have order a few decorating kits and as soon as they start arriving I will share that in a weekly post (probably Sundays) and I also plan on doing a weekly look at the planner spread I decorated for the week.

If you decorate your planner and have a favorite shop please leave it in the comments below so I can go and check them out.
