YES! You guessed it! My guiltiest of all guilty pleasures is PLANNING. Well, decorating my planner. My Dad is a list-maker, so I probably get this from him, but I make lists like you wouldn't believe. At any given time, in addition to my planner even, I have 5 lists going. And I rewrite them every single day. I also used to love to scrapbook pictures, but right now don't have time to be heavy into that. A way to combine my love of list making and decorating pages? My planner!!!

Guilty Pleasures Planning

Currently I'm using the Erin Condren Life Planner (click here to get $10 off) Vertical. I love this because it's easy to plan my day out and decorate it as well. I never feel like it looks too busy and generally leave myself a lot of white space for writing, particularly in the evenings and weekends when random plans can pop up (kids, yo).

The first spread I want to show you features the Vintage Gypsy Road August line and the weekend banner and accents are from My Newest Addiction.

This is the spread I did recently for Back to School! The primary type of colors generally aren't the way I go but for Back to School they're must-haves! I primarily used a set from Vintage Gypsy Road but also used quite a bit of accents and washi from PlannerKate1 and some things from Willowfields. My brother-in-law got married on the 5th so that's why it's a little different ;) . Click here to see the Plan With Me Flipagram!

For the next week I went full on Peacocks. I'd been searching for the perfect set when Vintage Gypsy Road went off and made a huge kit full of Peacocks (still available here but it's LIMITED EDITION so act fast) in jewel tones. How could I not buy this? I also added in a weekend banner from My Newest Addiction and few more accents from Willowfields. Click here to see the Plan With Me Flipagram!

For my first Fall set I wanted to get back to using the white space but also use some Sunflowers. One Orange Snowflake had the perfect kit and Fall sets from My Newest Addiction and Vintage Gypsy Road completed the look perfectly along with accents from Scribble Prints Co and Creating and Co.

I also LOVE the Kate Spade planners, but I use them more as part of my list making process. I write in things I want to get done on a certain date... sort of like a plan-ahead for work. I found the one pictured below on Shopbop and also grabbed a Kate Spade Pen Set because I loved the sayings!
