Back to School: Planners & Stationery I’m Loving

With fall classes fast approaching I’m getting ready to go back to school shopping & my favorite part is always looking for a new planner. I am a very organized person who loves having every aspect of my life thought out & color coordinated in a cute notebook.

Target is probably my favorite store, especially when it comes to back to school shopping. I have gotten my planners & school supplies there since the beginning of high school. Every season they come out with a new design for their planners & stationary. This year’s design is from the Ashely G. Collection for Blue Sky & includes gold, white & pinks with various patterns. I opted for their largest planner with a ringed binder that has a gold, polk-dot design. Inside it has a space for notes & even a section for “Gratitude”. Each day I can write down one thing I’m grateful for, which is so important for staying sane! I got a smaller planner/address book for my blog scheduling. For my desk, I got a calendar that will allow me to quickly glance at that day’s schedule & events. It also gives me a space to jot down quick notes.

Not everyone loves planning & organization as much as I do. If the thought of scheduled days & thinking ahead is scary, these planners are a not-so-intimidating way to start. They offer different sized planners & calendars so they are perfect for every occasion. Just start by jotting down your plans for the week & soon you’ll have the next 3 months planned out! Life won’t always go as planned, but planners can definitely help!

My Fitness Routine

“I love running!”- said no one ever.

I’m going to admit that running is one of my favorite ways to break a sweat, but some days it’s hard to leave my cozy bed for the thought of going to sweat in a smelly gym. But coming up with a schedule & routine that works for me has helped me get out of bed on even the coldest, darkest, sleepiest mornings. I’m such an organized, scheduled person in every aspect of my life, but especially when it comes to working out, because it keeps me accountable & motivated; which is something we all need!

I like to switch up my fitness routine every season so I don’t burn out. I also take the time to relax & meditate while I’m stretching to have some zen time before a busy day. It boosts my mood & finishes my workout on a positive note.

Below I’ve attached my workout schedule in hopes to inspire you to pick something you love, & stick with it.
