Doll List Printable

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Friday, April 06 2018 08:40AM
I've been noticing that a lot of my customers have been buying tons of dolls each time they buy and it made me wonder. How are they keeping track of all of them? With me releasing at least 5 each month plus 2-3 new doll freebies each month in our Facebook Group it can be overwhelming. Me myself I need to comprise a list of the dolls I have in stock. So with that being said and after a poll in my Facebook Group the Doll List is born. It's only right that one of our dolls makes her way in the photo too. lol (shown Hey You Doll - Planner Die Cut)
It features a place to put the doll name, how many you want and a place to check off if you got it. I even include an area to mark it's one of your favorites. And if you know me I can't help but decorate the insert. I think it's super handy to have if you're a customer of mine at Satin Doll & Co. So I know you're like girl give us the download. Here you go.

Enjoy!

Jewelry I Embrace in My 30s

Fashion & StylePosted by Gaetana Tuesday, March 27 2018 11:46AM
I've been in my 30s for 4 years now and I've noticed that fashion overall has changed for me. I no longer go for trendier items but more timeless and classic pieces. The same goes for my jewelry. I used to love my big, chunky, and bold pieces. Not anymore. Give me the simpler the better. I think as we age our likes and dislikes change like everything else. We can't stay the same forever. We do have to evolve and grow. So with that being said here is the jewelry I've been embracing in my 30s because they say it's the new 20s. It's as good as everyone says minus the gray hairs. Ijs.

Dainty bracelets - I never really cared for bracelets overall but I wear only one bracelet everyday no matter what I'm wear and it's a custom gold plated hamsa bracelet I made for myself. What I love about dainty bracelets is that you can wear them alone or pile them on. The more the merrier. They're simplistic yet still chic . You can do simple chain ones, ones with gemstones or ones with a mix of elements. The options are endless.

Choose Joy Pearl and Cherry Quartz bracelet (available at Satin Doll & Co.)

Aurora Blue Agate Chain bracelet (available at Satin Doll & Co.)

Simplistic necklaces - Just like bracelets I was never a huge necklace wearer. As a teen I was given jewelry by my parents, godmother and grandmother that I would alternate or wear all together. In my 20s I only wore my name plate necklace. In my 30s, depending on what I'm wearing I will only reach for certain necklaces if I do want to put one on and they're all simplistic. Why, you may ask because when they're simplistic they can go with just about anything. Simplistic necklaces are perfect for layering and they look polished and chic. A simplistic necklace can take a blazer, white shirt, jeans and ballerina flats from boring and plain to chic and sophisticated in a heart beat. Add a simple pair of earrings and a dainty bracelet and you're good to go. Take it from me. You'll be thanking me later.

Stud Earrings -If you know me then you know that I LOVE earrings. My collection has a bit of everything but as I reached 30 and has been embracing it. I no longer reach for my trendier, bolder, and chunky pieces. If it isn't a special event where I want my earrings to stand out then I'm not reaching for them. Plus with me being natural now and my hair is always dye some shade of red. My hair speaks for me. My earrings have taken a backseat. So the simpler the better for me. I've come to embrace stud earrings .They come in so many different varieties that can get bored.

No matter your age embrace it and your ever changing style.

Spring Cleaning Checklist Printable

PlanningPosted 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

Reading ListPosted 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.
