My 2016 Planner

Hey Lovers, DSC00250

I don’t know how but a couple months ago I came across the #PlannerAddict #PlannerCommunity #PlanWithMe hashtags and videos on Youtube and Instagram. Those pictures and videos hit the OCD spot of my soul. Throughout most of school and 2015 I used At A Glance planners. Cute planner with monthly and weekly spreads. What else could I need, right?

Hey Lovers, 

Tis the season for Sephora discounts! Recently Sephora just had the VIB Rouge 20% off sale and a couple of weeks before they had their Friends & Family event where you received 20% off if a Sephora employee emailed you their code.
