For those new to my blog, hi my name is Lakia and I’m a die hard Steelers fan. I know, who cares. Hell, I do. For those that have been readers here and there, one time or another you’ve come across football related posts. I’m no stranger to sharing how much of a Steelers fan I am. Well, a football fan in general. Continue reading “Sound Off: Sincerely, A Depressed Steelers Fan”
Lady Gaga headlined this years Pepsi Halftime show at Superbowl 51. Now when they announced that Lady Gaga would be headlining, I was excited because not only does Gaga have hits, but she can perform her ass off. As for this performance, well it was a “slay no slay” for me. Continue reading “Sound Off: Lady Gaga Slay No Slay?”
Yes, I am that person that had to run to my blog to share my excitement of Beyoncé being pregnant with not ONE, but TWO babies! QUEEN BEY IS HAVING TWINS! Now, if you’re not a loyal member of the Bey Hive than something like this would just be, “oh, another celebrity pregnancy.” BUT THIS IS BEYONCÉ!
Cheers to another football themed plan with me and my last football anything until the fall. Although my team is not in the Super Bowl (forever #SteelerNation), I couldn’t resist creating a themed spread for the week. I’ve created 5 in the past so it was challenging to create another one completely different from my previous ones. Not too shabby for my 6th time.

The Pepsi Halftime is officially over. Well it’s been over for a while and at this current moment the Degnver defense is running the field. It’s now a blowout game, but it could quickly escalate into one if the Panthers do not score in the 3rd quarter and they lose focus. So many teams have lost it simply by letting their emotions get the best of them. Anything could happen. It’s not over till it’s over.
IT’S SUPER BOWL WEEK! I have dedicated my spread this week to Super Bowl 50 using a football sampler kit from the Etsy shop Lillie Henry. Last week, although I had no accompanying video, I love the way the spread turned out. It was bright and vibrant.
For this week I could have recreated the spread I did for the week of September 7th-13th, but I decided to do a different football spread. This spread is my first no white space spread, ok minus the sidebar.
For those that do not know planner lingo, no white space is the entire layout covered in stickers. Now don’t be alarmed, these stickers are typically checklists combined with full/half boxes, and washi strips. You do not need a big bank of a massive Etsy collection to achieve a no white space spread.
Majority of this spread is washi tape/ I used some brown and green striped that I had to fill the boxes. I didn’t have any full box stickers since the ones from LillieHenry were cut like page flags. I also didn’t want to bulk up the page since I used a printable checklist on top so I interchanged between the two washis to complete the spread.
I love the adhesive border on the bottom of this spread plus the ‘Super Bowl Sunday’ sticker that I used to completely cover the 7th. I was thinking of layering the border, but the ‘Touchdown’ border just happened to work. To fill the white space I layered black washi and cut a flag in the border and on either side I put a football player.
My sidebar has been great for keeping track of my homework and what I’d like to clean for the week. I’m not crowding my weekly spread and there’s not a specific day for the sidebar. The sidebar is great for extras that you have.
I love the silhouette of the football players. The previous spread I created had gold football players, but I really love that these are black which worked well with the border. As usual, links to stickers/washi used will be below.
