January Favorites

Favorites 1

I’m a total creature of habit, so I don’t often have any new favorites, but I thought I’d share some from time to time when I’ve got a good amount. Here’s what I’m currently obsessed with at the moment: The Harry Potter Audiobooks: I have not read HP since well before the movies ever came out. I know, I’m terrible. It’s always so hard for me to reread books because… Read more »

Top 10 A Court of Mist & Fury by Sarah J. Maas: Hands down, this is my favorite book of 2016, possibly ever. I loved every scene, every character (even the ones I hated), and every sentence in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute I spent reading this book and with the fact that I read this book in 2 days (probably would’ve been in one day if I… Read more »

1. Shine Itazura Stealing Panda Coin Bank: I think this is a cute little “gag” gift or just a fun one, really. If you look this up online, you’ll see that if you place a coin on that tray, the panda will pop out and grab it. I got this for my 12yo and even though we have a ton of piggy banks, I figured she’d get a kick out… Read more »

Happy Planner Monthly and Weekly Spread Measurements

Plan With Vi 0

A question that I see a lot in some of the planner FB groups are about the sizes of the boxes and pages of the Happy Planner. A lot of people like to make their own stickers, use printables, or cut up scrapbook paper and it’s handy to have a reference on hand of sizing. With that in mind, I thought it was a good idea to have these pictures… Read more »
