Spring Cleaning Checklist Printable

Getting PersonalPosted by Gaetana Thursday, March 15 2018 01:24PM
Spring is only days away and I couldn't be happier. If you live anywhere where it gets cold and snow you know exactly how I feel. So with spring comes all the spring cleaning to get the home fresh and clean. With that being said I searched and searched convinced I created a spring cleaning list last year but came up empty. Which made me create one.

It features all the main zones of the home. Which include the main living areas plus the entry way. I even created a miscellaneous section for all other zones that you may find in a home.
Lastly, I created a notes section for any random bits or other items that aren't on the list that you may want to add. Finally you have to make it cute so I added some stickers from Chic Planner Gal on Etsy her Home Peace & Serenity kit. Which is perfect . You can actually laminate the document after printing to use over and over again with a dry erase pen.

To print, simply click on the image.To print for personal size make sure to click Actual Size in your printer section when printing. To fit will print the document in Letter size (8x11).

What We're READING: Rosalind James

Getting PersonalPosted by Gaetana Tuesday, February 27 2018 10:35AM
I decide to do something I haven't do at all in a while for today's blog post and do a book related post. Since last year when I created my Reading List printable I wrote down every book and book series I wanted to finish since I got Kindle Unlimited for my birthday back in November. Since the start of the year I've been tackling the author Rosalind James books. Specifically her Escape to New Zealand series.

So this blog post is more of a highlight to the author because I love this series and I'm kind of sad because it's coming to the end of it. The series consist of 11 books and I'm on book 10 (Just Say Yes, shown above). It takes place in New Zealand like duh. But it features members of the countries rugby team of the All Blacks. I know nothing of rugby since it's not played at all really here in the U.S. but is big across Europe and etc. The women in the book sometimes feature some Americans or New Zealanders from all walks of life. Each plot is different and Rosalind James just has a way with her writing that takes you into the book. From the description of the places, the people and the situations. You become transfixed. I literally want to visit New Zealand. The rugby players would put our American football players to shame. I'm just saying.

She doesn't just say oh he's a rugby player. You actually learn the sport, the positions the players play, the terms and you're literally on the field with these players. Rooting and hoping they make it to the championship. You become one of the WAGS in a way. Each woman has to overcome some sort of obstacles while she's trying to navigate this crazy and sometimes fast paced relationship with this rugby player who is so strong and fierce and so sure of himself. There is always some huge obstacle that makes the relationship fall apart.Sometimes created by the characters or the situations they're in. But nevertheless, they overcome them and come back together.

Rosalind James is a phenomenal writer and I can't wait to start another one of her series. Definitely check her out. You won't be disappointed.

January Must Haves

Getting PersonalPosted by Gaetana Friday, February 09 2018 11:11AM
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.
