One of my biggest pleasures in life is traveling. Once I decide to pack my bags, my enthusiasms for the next few weeks are centered around the trip. And going somewhere I’ve never been just makes me buzz with excitement. And as excited as I get, a big part of it comes from preparing for the trip itself. As a Type-A girl, I really can’t enjoy myself unless I have some sort of plan as to where I’m staying, what my itinerary is, and what places to eat. I’m all for spontaneity, b
I am by far the most organized person I know. Organization is not a thing, it is a way of life. And for me, it’s all about my tools when it comes to organization. That’s why today we’re going to talk about my current favourite organization tool and why it’s gotten me 100% more organized. Don’t believe me? Just check out my review.

Organization is a life saver that makes the world go round. Some people use one form of planner to organize everything. Some people -me- use a bunch of planners to stay organized. And with my new term starting and with spring cleaning being a thing right now, I thought I would share with you what I think a
While I don’t believe in spring cleaning (as you should clean your house up every few months or so instead of once a year), I do believe in giving my room a good deep clean when it needs it. Over the last two weeks, I have been in and out of the house, studying, going to appointments, traveling, baking cupcakes, taking AP tests, getting my braces on, and preparing for my upcoming trip to Europe. It’s been so crazy that I’ve barely had time to organize my thoughts, let alone c
I recently read Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess’s article on how she stays organized and I thought I’d show you my methods too. 1. A Day Planner. I bought a planner right before this school year started and it has saved my life. I put my daily goals, my homework, post ideas, upcoming tests, and other important dates in the pages. I also color-coordinate so I can quickly get to what I want. 2. Pinterest. I love Pinterest because it takes the whole internet and tucks it into n
