REVIEWING THE DAY DESIGNER



Right before January 1st this year I got the 2018 Day Designer Daily Planner after seeing it all over! I really love that it has two sides one where you can write out your daily schedule and fill in all of your appointments and then the other side of the page has a check list, this feature is my favorite because I really like having my schedule and to do list in the same planner. This feature of the planner has been REALLY nice! However, I did not realize before purchasing the planner that Saturday and Sunday are on the same page, this to me is super annoying, because I do so much on the weekend, weekdays each get an entire page, but Saturday and Sunday have one combined page. On this one page there is only the daily schedule and no half page to do list. This is probably the part about this planner that I like the least! However, I really like how it is set up during the week. 

I'm in college so I use my planner to write down assignments a lot! I originally thought I would use the notes section at the bottom of the pages to write down my assignments, however, this got super messy, because there are no lines. So, I started writing them down in the to do list section which makes it a lot neater. I wish there was like another spot to write down assignments, I looked at the Target Day Designer that gives each day a page like this one, and it was divided into three sections, daily schedule, to do list, notes which actually had lines. I wish that the Day Designer had that too! But, it's a lot prettier than the Target planner and has a nice hard cover. It also has different spots for writing down bills and dinner plans, which I love!

Another part about the planner that I like is that you also get a monthly spread, which I fill out as I make appointments and plans for the months ahead. So, this feature is really great! I love the daily schedule which I fill out at the beginning of each week. This is so much better than when you just get a space for each day, because then the events are listed in order of the time they are at, so when you add a new event it will be in the correct time order, where if there are no times you might have to write stuff out of order if you wrote down a later event first. This is just me being picky, but I really like this feature!

Overall I really like the Day Designer and I will most likely repurchase it for 2019. I just wish that Saturday and Sunday got their own separate pages lol! The 2018 planner is now on sale because it's almost half way through the year, but they just recently released the 2018-2019 Academic Year planner. If I was getting a new one I would definitely get this Secret Garden pattern.

COLLEGE GROCERY STAPLES

It's Finally Friday!! The spring semester is in full swing for this girl, however, spring break is in 7 days and counting, so things are looking up! Today I am sharing my college grocery staples, because at least at my school the food is not great and I mainly go to the dining hall for dinner. I am gluten-free, so everything on this list to the best of my knowledge is gluten-free! I do 99% of my grocery shopping at Wegmans and if you are from New York (other than NYC) you know how amazing this grocery store is! Above I am wearing my typical errands outfit, comfy and warm!
Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple
Cheese/Meat - cheese - Chobani greek yogurt - turkey sandwich meat - all natural coffee creamer
Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …

THE COZIEST THERMAL FOR WINTER

Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!

TWENTY THINGS I'VE LEARNED IN TWENTY YEARS

Well, it’s official, I’m no longer a teenager, on Sunday I turned 20! So, in honor of having two decades of my life under my belt, today I am sharing twenty things I have learned in the past twenty years! Holy crap, I cannot believe how old I am, now that I am writing this post, haha!
ONE – Stay positive Over the last year specifically I have really learned that positivity is one of the most important characteristics that I want to have. When someone thinks of me, I want them to think of a positive person. Just trying to be more positive really helps me to just have a better day and to be an overall happier person in general. While the rest of this post is not in order based on importance, this is my number one thing I have learned before I turned 20!
TWO – Be grateful I have realized it’s important to take the time to remember to be extremely grateful for everything I have, you never know how long you will have something. It’s important to be grateful especially for the little things in …
