Am I the only one who still can’t believe it’s already June? I mean, where did first half of the year go? I always get this unwarranted sense of anxiety around this time of year – like 2017 is already slipping away and I haven’t accomplished anything yet.

Obviously not true, but I rarely get the opportunity to relish in my milestones before it’s time to tackle the next big task. That’s why I was excited when Erin Condren asked me to partner with her and check out her signature LifePlanner – a completely customizable agenda/notebook/life organizer. I feel like it’s exactly what I need to get my life together midway through the year.

I got a sneak peek of Erin’s newest products at a special preview party last month and later got to customize my own LifePlanner exactly to my liking. I was able to chose the artwork on the cover, the interior color scheme and even the way the weekly pages are layed out! There were so many options, but I ended up going for the marble cover with a neutral color scheme. My life is a little crazy on the inside, so why not keep it minimal-looking on the outside?

The calendar starts from July 2017 all the way through December 2018, so I’m already counting down the days until I can dive right in. There’s also a ton of dedicated space to jot down goals, tasks and random thoughts. You know that feeling when you have so much going on in your head and just need to get it on a piece of paper to feel better? A brain dump is exactly what the doctor ordered!

Not going to lie, I’m feeling pretty inspired knowing that I have a place to write down my thoughts in one spot. If there’s one thing I’ve learned after making and neglecting my New Year’s Resolutions every year, I’m great at making goals/plans, but terrible at following through. But now that I’m equipped with a gorgeous new organizer and a whole lot of inspiration, I’m hoping that’s about to change!

Have you ever thought yourself: this week, I’m going to crush it at work, hang out with all of my friends and write all of my blog posts in advance … only to not accomplish of those things. Guilty as charged.

Do You Have a Word of the Year?

Some people embrace the new year with resolutions. Others adopt a single word to carry them through the year. I’ve decided to do both.
