MadeWithSouthernLuv: Ebony Queen Box

FeaturesPosted by Gaetana Tuesday, October 17 2017 11:08AM
My company had the rare opportunity to apart of a curated box of planner goodies and we couldn't pass it up. The seller behind the entire concept is MadewithSouthernLuv. You can find her on Etsy and her shop feature a wide variety of stickers and die cuts in a wide selection. She came up with the name Ebony Queen Box which I just adore and the very first box is a play off the box name and color palette. As a contributor, I was sent a box. I was super excited to receive mine and finally see what everyone contributed. Seeing it in bits and pieces is great but seeing it as a whole is amazing. So enough chit chat and let's get into the unboxing of the very first box of the Ebony Queen Box.

The box feature a variety of sticker sheets, washi tape samples, bookmarks, paper, TN books, die cuts and charms. And the retail price for this box was $30 I believe. Well worth it since sticker sample sheets and sticker kits can range from $3- $16 depending the seller. TN booklets can cost $3 and up depending the on the seller.So you get the drift. So let's dive into the box.

The first small items in the box are 4 samples of washi tape in gold and white. Perfect to putting in a zipper pocket of your planner or inside the secretarial pocket of your planner for easy use.

The next item is one of many die cuts included in the box. It features a cute naturalista dolls with her planner, pen and phone. Love her. She's by Cocos Vision with u n Mind.

The next is another die cut but this one is by Simply Me, Kish. She so fly with her crown, heart sunglasses and her name plate necklace.smiley

I totally forgot this was being included in the box because I was just saying to myself the other day I need a extra pen loop. It's by Ronda's Planner Accessories . I love the earthiness of it and it will go perfectly with my current planner setup.

The first of many stickers sheets included in this box is by QT Planner Co. It features 3 full boxes, 3 appointment boxes, 1 half box, a movie marquee, 3 flags, habit tracker and deco. Plenty to do a weekly spread. Add washi and you're good to go.

Another die cut but this one is by Cr8tively Chic. She a cute naturalista dolls looking fashionably and rocking a gold grown. You can't get any cuter than her.

The next features a laminated book with a gorgeous black and gold box. It says "Her courage was her Crown and she wore it like a Queen". And features a black girl rocking her natural hair with a crown on .Perfection. Can't wait to add her to my planner. It's by Jens Crafty DesignsCo .

The next one features a die cut and sticker set by Goldmine & Coco . What I love about this one is how unique the dolls are with her head wrap and dress holding her crown in her hand. She provided two skin tones too. Light and dark. I don't think I could ever use the stickers because I can't get a replacement.

Avalon & Ninth included a nice sample sheet of stickers which can be used with another sheet in this box to do a entire weekly spread. It features 3 scalloped half boxes, a lined half box, 2 banners, a laundry sticker, a scale sticker, a post it sticker and a circle heart sticker.

MadeWithSouthernLuv included two stickers sheets (a full kit) in the color palette of the box. Perfection! Features flag checklists, weekend banner, icons, written icons, headers, 2 habit trackers, 2 bills due, little things, 4 half boxes, 1 full box, 3 appointment labels, 1 4 heart checklist box, and one weekly habit tracker.

The next features a TN insert booklet for pocket size by City Girl Planners . The inside features 4 different inserts. Shops to Try pages.
Shops to Buy pages.
Favorite Shops pages.
And finally Happy Mail pages. The booklet makes the perfect addition to any new or existing planning TN system.

This next sticker sheet is by darcydoodles . These stickers remind me of the Sunday comic stripes in the Sunday newspaper. So fun. Features 4 characters,3 appointment labels, 3 littler things, icons, 6 statement stickers. Love the assortment of statement stickers.

The next item was our item we designed and contributed to the Ebony Queen Box. It's a planner charm in the rich tone of brown, gold and brass.We actually created 3 different style.The one difference between the three it the little charm dangling.This one features a brass ornate drop while the other style features a gold beaded drop or a brass evil eye charm. Perfect to dangle from the front,side or top of your planner.

I think this sticker sheet by Pandabird Design is one of my personal favorites from the box. You see that full box at the very top left hand corner.LOVE it!!!! So this sticker sheet features 2 full box, 4 checklists, 2 half boxes, 4 scalloped stickers, headers, a movie marquee, a weekend banner and some little icon stickers.

The next is by Paper Shae and features a personal size TN Lined Notebook with the coolest gold crown cover. Even after I finish this booklet I will cut the front cover and back cover and include in my planner as dashboards.

The paper is lined and enough room to write. The paper is thick and smooth like butter. Very good quality.

The second to last item in this box is a double sided paper by Kuumba Life Designs. This paper is fire.

One side features a Melanin Queen print.
While the other side features a gold crown print. Perfect to use in your planner as a dashboard.


Last but not least is by xquistesoul . If you're old enough to remember the paper dolls from back in the day then you'll love these stickers.She took that exact idea but put it in a sticker form.Love it. Features two dolls and enough clothing and accessories to dress her to the nines.

Now this concludes my unboxing of the very first MadeWithSouthernLuv Ebony Queen Box. We will be contributing to the next box. No I can't tell you the theme, the colors, or what's going to be inside but I can tell you it will be everything. The first box sold out in the first day and only lasted maybe the half the day. There was so much demand that the number of boxes has been increased. So run to MadeWithSoutherLuv's Instagram and go follow her so you'll be in the know when the next box drops. You definitely don't want to left out in the cold.

Which item is your favorite out of the entire box?

October Journaling Cards

Getting PersonalPosted by Gaetana Friday, September 29 2017 06:37AM
October is only days away and it's time to remove September's journaling cards with October's. For October I decided to create 3. A plain one, a pumpkin because October is the height of pumpkin season and a spider's web one because of the obvious Halloween.

Just like before last month, I printed mine and then use a scallop edge scissor to add a more decorative edge. One will be going in the front of my TN shown above and another will be going in a pocket in my recollections everyday planner. Don't think too hard about it. Have fun with it.

Now on downloading them.

Freebie Friday: Make Stuff Happen Printable

Trends & gossipPosted by Gaetana Friday, September 15 2017 11:31AM
Nothing makes me more happy then creating a master to-do list where I can brain dump every little task that I have to complete. It can be stuff that needs to be done a week, or two, or even months away. It goes on the list. This is the same list that I will go to each week and select an item on two to add to my weekly to-do list.

Throughout the year you might even fill up a page or two like I have and it's so rewarding to see every item marked off. It features a page full of lines with a circle next to it to mark it off when the task is completed. Super clean and efficient. You'll be glad you added it to your planner.

Please note, this printable for personal size ring bound planners.

To print on one side, simply click print. For double sided, print the first page then turn the page over and reinsert so it prints on the blank side.

July/August Must Haves

Trends & gossipPosted by Gaetana Tuesday, September 12 2017 10:14AM
The summer is basically over here in the northeast so I finally have time to do a proper blog post featuring my monthly favorites for July and August. They're are mostly hair item minus one jewelry item.So enough chit chat and onto my must haves.

You might of seen my post on Instagram about my hamsa bracelet that was missing for months but resurfaced one day when I was cleaning in the most unlikely place. Since I found it and repaired it it hasn't left my wrist except for one day when I forgot to put it one. Hamsa's are a symbol of protection and ward off evil in a nutshell. My original piece was all rose gold plated but I had to repair it with gold tone chain and findings. Nevertheless, I still love it. You can find a similar bracelet on our website but in silver tone. Silver Tone Hamsa Chain bracelet

Now with this next product I love what's in the container but of recently this brand has showed it's true colors. I won't touch on the controversy because you already heard about it and has moved on. But when I found it in my hall closet I said I would rather use it then toss it in the trash. Despite the company the product in this jar is pure gold. Shea Moisture Raw Shea & Cupuacu Frizz Defense Hair Masque is the business. One it smells so good but my thick hair loves it. I've noticed less frizz when I use. Will I be repurchasing??? I'm on the fence about that one. But since I stand behind my reasoning for not supporting this brand any longer I won't be repurchasing no matter how cheap you can find them. I'll pass but if you do still support this brand I would purchase this product.

Hold up, stop the press. Who knew Madam C.J. Walker was still in business. I didn't until I went to CurlFest.Now you know she's an OG of black hair care. I tried it and love it on the first try. I finished 2 packets with almost two months. Yes I was using is sparingly. One it smell soooo good, two the consistency is thick and a little goes a long way.Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Wonderful Deep Conditioning Masque is the business. It is going to be a staple in my hair care routine.My hair loves moisture and this product gives the moisture it craves and then some. Try it you'll love it. Available at Sephora.

When it comes to this brand I love Eden BodyWorks and the same can be said for their Jojoba Monoi Line. Their Natural Deep Conditioner is a must for my hair routine. I really should of picked up a full container at CurlFest. Well now I know. This conditioner in combination with my other regular conditioners makes my hair happy. Leaves my hair moisturized and helps makes the detangling process easier. Definitely adding this to my must have conditioners. Available at all your retailers.

I have a love and hate relationship with Creme of Nature. I love the scent of it but if I use it too regularly I'm over it.Nevertheless, I was loving there Intensive Conditioning Treatment. If it comes in a bottle like their shampoo does then I've used it in the past. Hands down my hair loves their entire line. It's never heavy or overly thick. My hair just absorbs it and makes for easy detangling. Leaves my hair moisturized. Available at all your retailers.

I started using the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave in Conditioner when I finished my regular leave in. It can be used on a daily basis but I mainly used it after I washed and deep conditioned my hair. Even when I used it in the middle of week on dry hair it add the needed moisture my hair was craving. Super light, no,flaking or product buildup. I'll definitely be purchasing this product in the near future. Available at all your retailers.

Now this product surprised the hell out of me. I love me so Design Essentials. By day 3 of any hair style I do in my hair (ie:wash and go, twist out, two strand twist, bun,pony tail, pineapple) my hair is screaming for moisture. I normally spritz my hair with a little bit of water then a moisturizer and restyle. I instead used this in place Design Essentials Natural Coconut & Monoi Curl Enhancing Dual Hydration Milk.Wow! It has milky consistency, super light but highly moisturizing. A little goes a long way. I sealed with oil and my hair was good to go. I will definitely be purchasing when I go in the store. Try it. You'll see exactly what I mean. Available at all your retailers.

July and August were hair products heavy since it was the summer and I tend to spend a lot of time in the sun.Which results in my hair getting fried and needing a ton of moisture added.September has only started so you'll have to wait and see what I'm loving.

September Journaling Cards

Getting PersonalPosted by Gaetana Monday, August 28 2017 01:04PM
September is literally days away and fall is definitely in the air. Especially if you're on the east coast. This month I included 2 journaling cards instead of 3. One being plain and straight forward and the second being school related.Since by now all the children should be getting ready to start a new school year. So the stack of books with a pair of reading glasses are a perfect theme for September.


I printed mine and cut them using my famous scallop edge scissors. Giving them a little something something. I think I'll be keeping mine in the front of my TN but you can store them inside a pocket or adhere them to a dashboard. The possibilities are endless. Have fun with them.

So I know you're dying to download them. Simply click print and you're good to go.

To download, simply click on the image.
