All About the PENjamins [1]

Plan With Vi 1

Pens are the life-line of any planner girl and it’s crazy how much I’m obsessed with them lately. For the inaugural post into this feature, I thought I’d showcase one my favourite set of pens. I came across this purely by chance actually, as my Hubs raided my SIL’s pen stash and took this set of pens from her. I thought they looked cool and decided to give them a… Read more »

I’m pretty much EPICALLY late in posting about this, but yeah, I couldn’t, in good conscience, not talk about this book that I got for BG2 a few months ago. I am a sucker for personalized books. Something about seeing your name in a book is just cool to me, and I love getting books like that for the kids. I know you’ve heard me talk about other books like… Read more »

My Happy Planner

Plan With Vi 1

I just realized that I started all this planner talk without showcasing my actual paper planner! The one my husband choose for me was the Happy Planner by MAMBI (My Life). Obviously, I added my online alias to the cover. The pink diamond sticker was swag from an author. There’s a quote sticker that I put on the back, too. As for the inside, I added the “Year at a… Read more »

One of the staples of the planning world nowadays is washi tape. I love it! There are thousands of them, and I seriously want to collect them all. My collection is pretty small right now, but I thought it would be nice to give them their own feature and showcase all the pretties that I’ll be getting over time. All the ones that I have right now, I bought from Michael’s,… Read more »

I thought I’d start off this Plan With Vi journey by showing you all a few of my weekly spreads. It’s simply how I decorate my planner each week. Here are some examples with my tasks and stuff already written in: And here’s one for this week, before I write in any of my tasks: I guess I’m kind of doing a “cutesy” theme for now as I’m using a… Read more »

If you follow me on social media, particularly Instagram, then you’ll know that I have recently become OBSESSED with paper planning. I’ve been talking about paper planning for the last year or so since discovering that they do, in fact, still exist (I haven’t done the paper planning thing since high school), they’re extremely popular, and they have changed A LOT! There’s seriously this amazing planner community that I’m happy… Read more »

Caffeine I’ve had this app for years and I love it. It’s so simple and basically fades into the background, but it does its job well. What it does is makes sure your computer doesn’t go to sleep. I know, people set timers and all that to make their computers go to sleep after some time, but I’m constantly on my computer, or I need it to always be on,… Read more »
