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!

Art and Fashion with The Dixon Gallery and Gardens

To me, fashion has always been a form of art - there's the art from the creator but also art from the wearer in how they style the piece. Because I love the art of fashion so very much it should come as no surprise that I also love more traditional art. I think a lot of people think of museums as being stuffy places but one thing I think is so wonderful about museums is that whether your family has a gallery named after them or you bought a general admission ticket it gives us all the same exposure to art and its beauty - the Mona Lisa after all smiles no more for the Louvre's benefactors than she does for the thousands of tourists that come to see her each year. In Memphis we have several wonderful museums and places to see art but the place I frequent the most is The Dixon Gallery and Gardens. I have been a member of The Dixon for over 10 years because not only is it a place of paintings on the wall and beautiful gardens it is a place of gathering with their many social ev…

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…

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

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…
