Lauren James Timeless Planner Review and Giveaway

Happy Friday Y'all! Today I have a special treat - I'm having a giveaway on my Instagram. I've been posting a lot lately about the super cute southern brand Lauren James. I discovered LJ last Christmas season when I purchased a really cute Christmas sweater t-shirt and realized it's the most comfortable tee ever. Lauren James recently had their annual Pink Friday sale which offered 50% off or more the entire site; as a special treat for this sale the company featured mystery boxes for $30 - of course I had to grab one!
 
I've seen posts on instagram of other people's boxes and it looks like everyone received a very similar product mix. Inside the box was:
1. pair of shorts
2. cotton tank
3.  long sleeve sweet tee
4. wearable drink hugger
5. tervis tumbler
6. ceramic to-go coffee mug
7. floral accessory bag
8. floral notebook
9. floral spiral notebook
10. two drink huggers
11. the timeless planner
12. planner stickers
 
I was thrilled with the box and found it to be a great value! Some of the items are so great I had already selected them and hence today's giveaway.
 
During the sale I purchased the Timeless Planner and set of planner stickers and have been using this planner as my instagram and blog planner. Although this fit my particular needs considering I already had other planners for the year I think this is a great planner and could be used for a variety of planning functions. These photos are of my personal planner - the one I am giving away is still in its plastic wrapping.
 
The cover of the planner is beautiful, I'll be honest I bought it without knowing exactly what I would use it for I love it that much. The cover is hard and features an elastic band to keep the planner closed when not in use.
 


 

 
Inside the pages have designs that are fun but do not take away from the functionality of the planner.
 
Each month features goal section


There is a monthly calendar with room for notes


And a weekly layout for each week. Because there's pre-printed sections for meals and water I think this would make a great meal planner or fitness planner.

The paper has a nice thickness to it without making the planner bulky and there's no bleed through with pens.
 
The back features a double sided pocket and a a couple sheets of label stickers.


Overall I am very pleased with this planner.

With the planner I will be sending the winner a set of season stickers - these stickers are beautiful designs to mark fun holidays, special occasions and add embellishments.
 

To enter just head over to my instagram, follow me, like my Christmas in July post, and comment with your favorite silly holiday. Winner will be selected by random on July 31st. Good luck!

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …

Plum Paper Designs - Fitness Insert

I know I say this every year but this year I also want to make wellness / fitness a priority. It's hard for me to get in the mindset of making it important because quite frankly it's not something my doctor gets onto me about. But during 2015 I've been making a switch to a more natural lifestyle and that has put fitness back at my top of mind. So, for $4.50 I got the fitness section added onto my Plum Paper Designs Planner 
Here's what's inside: 

A summary sheet at the front: 

A monthly layout for 12 months
Weight Loss Tracker at the Back 

I LOVE the monthly layout! First off, having a hydration tracker for each day is going to be so nice. I also love the idea of holding myself accountable to writing down an activity (or excuse) each day. Most of all I love the recognition that each month will have different goals and includes some note sections ; one thing I hear a lot form people who successfully got fit was that they had some kind of tracking and were able to go back…

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

What’s in the bag : Toiletry Essentials to Pack for Your Next Trip

I’ve  been traveling so much lately so I’ve pretty much got packing down to a science. Planning for a trip can be stressful so I’m here to make it a little easier for you and talk about the necessities, today were specifically talking about what’s in the toiletry bag. As a special treat I have teamed up with Smile Brilliant for a giveaway at the end of this post!!! When thinking about necessities I first think about the things I don’t need - hotels always have shampoo, conditioner and a hairdryer so I never bring my own to save space.  I then think about what items I use at home that I can go without for the week vs. what I use everyday. I also try to think about  products that are good for multipurpose; facial oil is a great example as I use it for a makeup remover at night , a moisturizer in the morning and I also use a small amount on the ends of my hair. Through this I’ve been able to narrow it down to only ten items.
1. Hairbrush

2. Deodorant

3. Toothbrush

4. Toothpaste

5. Facia…

Top Ten Trends for Fall and What to Buy Now

I received several questions about the Nordstrom sale and this year I really felt like I would bite the bullet and make a post with recommendations and while I see myself always browsing the sale to see what's up and I'm not closed to doing a round up post in the future after reviewing this year's sale I just can't find the patience to put an entire post together. I always want this blog to be a place where I am authentic and real and not just a place to spew out what's popular but rather what trends speak to me. And I hate to disappoint people , I'm very flattered that there have been people to reach out and ask about my recommendations but I don't want to recommend things just for the sake of recommending things. I prefer to shop in season and with the weather in Memphis I just won't be wearing fall items until late October. Plus, a lot of the items I saw in the sale I liked are similar to items I already own and I don't need to be buying duplic…
