I will tell you January felt like one of the LONGEST months ever. It was never ending but nevertheless it's now over and February is here. Which means it's time for January Must Haves. I really had to think what was I loving in January and I came up with a nice selection of items.
From nail polishes to hair care to stationery and a promotional item.So let's get into it.
It has been beyond cold here in the east coast and with my hair being natural. A good leave- in conditioning has been saving my life. It's one of many items helping me keep my hair healthy and moisturized. Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioning Cream
has been hitting the spot.
As you can see it has a nice consistency. Not too light but not too heavy. It's a nice medium and it leave my hair feeling great and ready for the next step in my hair care regimen. My hair loves it and just eats it up. I love the smell of it too. Because after a while some product scents can become annoying to me. Which causes me to stop using it for a little bit. You can find it at Walmart, Target and all your local beauty supply stores.
I go through phases when it comes to nail polishes. Sometimes it bright colors, or mints, or greens. This time it's nudes. I've been loving them since the end of December and all through January and I don't think I"ll be switching it up for February either. These three by MAC, Wet n' Wild and Formula X are the ones I've been wearing. Nobody is really seeing my feet because it's winter but if I do have to wear a pair of heels at least with a nude I won't have to worry will it clash. Formula X is in Thrilling
and you can get it at Amazon. Wet n' Wild is in Private Viewing
and you can get at Rite Aid, Target and the Wet n' Wild website. MAC is in Skin which is no longer available at MAC.
Since my business now has it open designated planner I was on the hunt for the perfect inserts for everything. Annie Plans Printables
are the business.These are her Shop Owner TN inserts
and I highly recommend them. I did a blog post on my business planner, "A Look Inside My Business Planner in 2018
". A plus is that they are so easy to print. I also love how her inserts have such great covers. Definitely my style. With it being a printable you can print it endlessly which I have to print more just yesterday.She has a wide variety of inserts for just about anything and in a wide variety of sizes.
I knew having a second planner I would need weekly inserts that I could use in my business planner .So I'm huge fan of Wendaful's inserts. I was so glad I remembered that she had a TN pocket size with a horizontal layout on one side and grid paper on the other. ( Midori Week on One Page with Notes Printable
) I included it also in my business planner blog post.
It's very clean and no fuss. It's like a blank canvas. I plan what I'm going to do daily on the left side and everything else like to-do's, shopping lists, habit trackers, deadlines, goals and etc go on the grid side. I'm loving it. It gives me enough give if I want to decorate or not too.Highly recommend it.
As you may well all know I'm the owner of Satin Doll & Co. I've been making solely jewelry and accessories for the last 8 years but in the last two have branched off to stationery. With that being said my old business card was too cluttered for my taste and need to be simplified. I wanted everything to be clean, chic and sleek. So I went and redesigned my entire promotional items. And I'm completely in love with our new business cards. It's everything I wanted. Clean, sleek and chic. Featuring our signature colors. Clear and to the point with all the necessary information. I used Vista Print to make them and they did a wonderful job like always.
As you may well all know I've branched into die cuts in 2018 and our Giving Shoulder Queen Doll - Planner Die Cut
I adore. She was originally our Twinkle Queen but everyone loved her so much during the holiday season that I took away her lights and renamed her. I absolutely adore her.I knew when I was sketching her that I love her. When I add the color I loved her. When I printed her I love her. Hands down she my favorite out of all my dolls. She's available on my website
If you're a planner girl then you must know Kiki or Paper Princess Plans on Youtube and Instagram. She recently started making and selling stickers on Etsy and I had to support one of my favorite Youtubers. These are her Work Princess Stickers and as you can see I've been using them up. You get two sizes. One larger and one smaller. I've been using them so much that I only have the big ones left and I'm using them sparely now. The paper quality is really good, they're super affordable and they're just so cute. Check her out here
Ive been hoarding this sticker booklet from Target Dollar Spot for a hot minute now and I'm finally using it. When I was setting up my business planner I wanted tabs not only for that but for my personal planner. It's a PITA to find the sections I wanted. I then remembered I had this booklet with these flags. As you can see I used most of the beige ones up. The other sheet of this one barely has anything left. But they were exactly what I needed.
And as you can see they make the best page tabs. If you have any page flags laying around. They definitely make the perfect page tabs. Put on card stock, cute out and then laminate. You'll be good to go.
Well this concludes my Must Haves for December. What
are you loving? I would love to know.

I confess, I'm a earring lover. I never leave the house without a pair on. Yes, I'm one of those women.So when I heard there were "THE" perfect everyday earrings I'll never swap out. I'm here for it.
I'm in my early 30's and as I've gotten older my style has gotten more clean, sleek and chic. Goodbye, trendy.With that being said we all love our statement accessories but they're not accessible for everyday wear. This is where finding simple, sleek designs come into play. It makes getting ready so much easier and faster. They feature a bit of sparkle, unique shapes, and shades of silver, gold and beyond to make each one feel special. The best part is, I'll ever want to take them off. Winning!!!

Sometimes we get so busy caring for everyone else that we forget about ourselves. This checkilist is meant to help you check-in and worry for self for once.

January is finally coming to a close. Was it just me or was it one of the longest months ever. It seemed like it would go on forever. Nevertheless, with February only 2 days away it's time to switch out our old journaling card to something new. Since February is known as the lovers month besides Black History Month. I decided to add a bit of a heart theme to this month's journaling card. Like always I adorned mine using the scallop scissors to give them a more decorative look.

I received my MadeWithSouthernLuv Ebony Queen Box
a couple of days ago and just like the last time all the shops who contributed knocked it out of the box. I didn't know what to expect because this time around everyone was pretty quiet. Nevertheless, it all came out beautifully. The theme this time was a masquerade theme which is perfect since Mardi Gras and Carnival is just around the corner. The color scheme was purple, black and gold. So let's dig inside.
As you can see this box is jammed pack with tons of goodies from stickers to die cuts to even a mask.
Every planner girls favorites in one box.
It's only right since the theme of the box is a masquerade theme that you have a mask. This one isn't any ordinary mask either. It features black ribbon and the mask itself is of the post beautiful lace trim. Perfect for any masquerade balls you may attend next month.The quality of the mask is amazing.
This next item has to be the most beautiful die cut ever. Is this Ebony Queen die cut with foiling detail. The foiling really makes it pop.
Then there is this laminated journaling card that features the name of the box. She is perfect and ready to go straight into your planner. The illustration is beautiful and embodies exactly what the theme of the box is.
The next item is a bow charm in one of the theme colors. The bow is very well made is one of the prettiest shades of purple accentuated by silver accents and findings.
Our shop, Satin Doll & Co.
contributed jeweled paper clips in either this golden yellow or black. I really should of taken it out of it's packaging. My bad. But never the less no masquerade wouldn't be complete without some jewels.
This page marker/bookmark is soo cute. It features a quote that says "the less you reveal the more people can wonder". The mask and shoes just bring it over the top. Just run it through your laminator and you're good to go.
This charm is perfect for any TN. Simplistic in design and embodies the theme of the box.
This planner charm by Pardon My Chic
is this boxes theme in planner charm. It's absolutely gorgeous and features a gold mask with beads in the theme colors. Perfect for any planner TN or ring bound.
You can't have any planner box without any type insert. Paper Shae
provided a TN insert in pocket size.
You can't go wrong with grid paper and her paper quality is some of the best. Can't wait to start using this.
I was so happy to see that QT Planner Co.
was again in the box. She included another sampler sheet of stickers. The deco stickers are too cute especially the one that says Let's Misbehave. I really enjoyed using her stickers the last time. The quality of the stickers are really good and I look forward to doing a weekly spread with them.
The box creator MadeWithSouthernLuv
included a full 4 page kit. Full boxes, half boxes, quarter boxes, little things, headers, heart check boxes, check lists, habit trackers, deco and icons.The whole shabang. What I love most are her full boxes. If I could hoard them I would but I definitely look forward to using them. They are EVERYTHING.
The last sticker sheet included was from My Rosebud Boutique
. She include a TN kit that fits perfectly in my pocket TN. It features a bit of everything from washi to headers to check lists, icons, half box, weekend banner and etc. Enough to do a whole weeks white space spread. I can't wait to use it.
Lastly, to round out the box you'll find 4 sample wash packs in the boxes theme colors and a gold feather that you would find in a masquerade mask.
Overall, the theme of the box was a hit. The theme colors was amazeballs. The mix of items include was perfection. There was a nice mix of everything and no two items were alike. MadeWithSouthernLuv and everyone who contributed to the box did an amazing job and I"m not just saying this because I'm a contributor. A++ everyone.
Boxes are still available and there is FREE SHIPPING. Don't walk, run. Get yours, here
