October Plan With Me

It’s October. That means holiday season is about to be in full swing. Clocks will be set back, stores will be flooded with people, and my birthday is around the corner. YES, it’s officially my birthday month. Cheers to 25 on October 15th (insert the obnoxious cheesy emoji). In this post I wanted to share how I decorated my planner for October. I mean, of course, I’m a planner.

Plan With Me: October 12th-18th

It’s my BIRTHDAY WEEK! It’s finally almost October 15th. I meant to get this post up yesterday, October 11th, but I never got around to doing so. It’s been a long yet amazing weekend. I went to a wedding over the weekend and when I got back home, I automatically crashed.

So goals for this week,

  • uploading my finished posts
  • drinking more water
  • staying positive

A lot of more content is coming such as the renewal of my Motivational Monday series, of course more planner overload, but also a few fashion posts along with holiday decor & organization. Also, my series Sound OFF is starting back up. Lots of hot topics to discuss.

Getting back to this post, here’s my layout from last week, October 5th-11th, completely filled out. Also, be sure to check out my September Recap HERE!

When it came to planning my layout for this week, I was going for a sweet treat theme. There’s a macaron set that I had purchased from xoMamaPlans on Etsy (check her YouTube HERE) and I wanted the layout to be centered around that, but the colors are pretty muted. So, I went into my sticker stash and used up the full boxes I had from the obsolete Etsy shop, Pixels & Poppies and put those in the middle section.

I didn’t do the typical sidebar that I have done for the past 3 weeks with my TV shows, instead I used the TV icon from RorysSweetAddictions layered with an Erin Condren sticker and I wrote in my shows. I’ll probably go back to the TV show sidebar next week. In place of my typical sidebar, I added hydrate stickers from TwoKraftyChicks which also helped to cover the pen marks from last week.

Another challenge I had this week was to mark off my Instagram posts being that I’ve basically run out of the Instagram stickers that I love from AStickyMonster. To maximize the stickers I have left, I took the MDN headers from LillieHenry and put an instagram sticker on Monday to indicate that the labels were specifically for those posts. To fill in the remainder empty spaces, i added Erin Condren quotes and cupcake washi tape.

I blocked off my entire birthday with the full boxes I mentioned and I layered that with a sticker from Erin Condren and cute kawaii cupcake. I left the day pretty empty other than that to add anything else. Also, I couldn’t forget to add my Steelers stickers. We play two games this week. Oh the joy (and added stress.. lol) of my birthday week.

Overall I absolutely love how this layout turned out. I add throughout the week as well. Below are links to stickers used along with my weekly plan with me video. ENJOY!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SNOOP DOGG! #LIBRASEASON

snoopdogg-steelerss-006004HAPPY BIRTHDAY SNOOOOOOP DOGG (it’s the D-O-GG)! When compiling my libra birthday list for the blog I knew some off the top of my head, but I didn’t know that Snoop was a LIBRA! Aside from him being a Steelers fan, this is just another reason for me to love him. Snoop is a triple OG in the rap game and aside from his music is known for calling the guys nephew. I mean he has changed his name to Snoop Lion, but I’ll always know him as Snoop Dogg.

Since his first studio release in 1993, Snoop has gone on to release a total of 12 solo albums, with over 30 million records sold. While he’s popular in the game, award wise he has yet to win one although he’s been nominated 16 times. He has won an AMA and a BET Award. Aside from music, Snoop has a YouTube channel GGN News that has over 1 million subscribers and almost 350 million views. CLICK HERE to check out the latest.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY SNOOP!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMINEM! #LIBRASEASON

Eminem_11-15-2013Happy Birthday to one of the greatest of all time, the real Slim Shady, EMINEM! He has redefined hip hop over the years and is one of the most celebrated rappers.

His first album, Infinite, was released in 1996 and over the course of nearly 20 years he has released 8 studio albums, and starred in a movie about his life that has become quite the classic. For the success of 8 Mile, Em snagged an Oscar for Best Original Song for the track ‘Lose Yourself’. Aside from an Oscar win Em has won other awards including: 14 AMAs, 17 BMAs, 13 VMAs, 10 TCAs, 10 WMAs, and an astounding 13 Grammy’s. Five of those Grammy wins were for Best Rap Album.

It’s amazing what a career Eminem has had and while he’s seasoned in the game his fans are still there and so are his lyrics. Not many rappers can lyrically add comedic relief to their music. Can’t wait to see what else he has in store.

HAPPY HAPPY 42nd BIRTHDAY EM! Listen to some of my favs below:
