June 2017 in my planner

Since June is coming up, I thought that I would share my planner and how I keep it organized. I normally sit down and plan the week ahead on Sundays, but since it was a long weekend I didn’t get around to it until Monday night. Would you want to see more posts like this where I share my tips and tricks/weekly spreads for my planners? Let me know in the comments!

I currently use the mini happy planner and just recently got the medium size discs because the smaller discs was not cutting it lately (been having a hard time flipping through the pages). I’ve been using this planner since the beginning of the year and I love it! The disc system is very versatile: it’s like a binder and a notebook, which I really like. I used to use washi tape in other planner spreads but since this is a mini, I mainly focus on color coordinating and stickers. I use a bunch of pens in my planner. Different colors means different events/things to do. So pink would be birthdays (and I also use it to mark when I should edit vlogs/start blog posts) and green would be for work, as you can see in the pic below) I have 3 packs of stickers that I currently use as well, all purchased from Michael’s with a 40% off coupon (always go on their website and find the coupons for the week you go! It’s always good to save a few bucks)

This is my monthly spread for June. As you can see there’s a few important events that I already put in my planner so I wouldn’t forget. I’m also going to Cancun later on in the month for my best friend’s bachelorette so I thought Mexico stickers would make this spread much more fun.

This is what this week’s spread looks like so far. This is pretty simple with a few stickers here and there but as the week goes by it’ll definitely get filled up fast. I know that there are going to be a bunch of errands I’ll have to do before the graduation and I also have to decide which day I start editing the end of May vlog so that it’s up in the beginning of June.

For me, it is easier to see a layout of what I need to do this week or this month, so I can allow myself enough time for everything: spending time with friends/family, errands, chores, etc. I’m also thinking of doing a vlog style plan with me in the future. Let me know if that’s also something you would want to see too! Also, let me know if you’re a fellow planner addict and which planning system you like best!

What’s in my bag?

I’m sure you aren’t surprised that my every day bag is a backpack since it’s on trend right now. But this backpack is convertible and I purchased it at Ross before Coachella last month. This is a Multisac convertible backpack with 2 zipper side pockets and a snap closure pocket on the front. It looks so small but I can fit a bunch inside. There’s a zipper pocket inside and two other smaller pockets. Here’s what’s inside:

First thing on the list is my Mini Happy Planner. I am obsessed with planners and have a bunch of different planners in my collection. I chose to bring this one everywhere with me because of how compact it is and it doesn’t hurt that it’s super cute! I normally only have one pen in my bag for work but I also have a bunch of different colored pens that I use in the planner too. I always need sunglasses with me because my eyes are very sensitive to brightness. These have an aviator kind of style with mirrored lenses. Mirrored lenses are perfect for the warmer months and we’re getting lots of sun and blue skies here in the Bay Area. I also have my vlogging camera, Samsung NX Mini. As you can see, it’s a very convenient size to carry around. I have an Apple lightning charging cable and a portable charger by Anker. I’m on my phone so much that it dies a little quicker. I wouldn’t want my phone to die in an emergency situation. I have a blue Michael Kors card holder where I keep the essentials. I have this pale blue Rebecca Minkoff keychain/mini wallet. I put my cash and change here since the card holder is a little snug for it. I can’t go anywhere without my car keys and my bright blue pepper spray makes it easier to find. A girl’s bag isn’t a bag without some makeup items. I have DUO eyelash glue, Maybelline Better Skin powder, Wet n Wild liquid lipstick, Essence make me brow gel, and chapstick.

My bag doesn’t have anything too interesting. Surprisingly, I didn’t have any trash or leftover food in my bag this time. There’s a pocket in the back of the bag that perfectly fits my iPhone 6 Plus. So that’s a plus.
