I Finally Caved And Bought The Erin Condren Life Planner

I've been a Lilly Pulitzer agenda girl for almost three years now but in the back of my mind, I always knew that I wanted an Erin Condren Life Planner. The Erin Condren Life Planner is essentially the Ferrari of planners and the majority of the planner stickers on the market are made for it. So last night, while shopping for my school supply essentials, I intended to order my new Lilly Pulitzer agenda for the new school year. Well, looking over the patterns offered this year and not totally sold on one like I had been in the past years, I glanced over to the sidebar to see an Erin Condren ad with a FLAMINGO COVER. I took that as a sign that it was time to change my ways.

I got the Erin Condren 18 month planner with a personalized flamingo cover, vertical layout and a neutral color scheme. There were so many options to personalize the planner and that just made me even more excited. While this planner is a little more costly than any planner I have ever owned before, I think it's going to end up being worth it. My finished planner cost $60 with about a $8 shipping fee. Since I registered as a new member, I was sent a coupon for $10 off my first order. I was also given a referral link, so if you want to order a super fancy new planner, you can get $10 off courtesy of me! My referral link is: https://www.erincondren.com/referral/invite/katelynmitchell0215

The image above shows the two different color schemes available for the 2016/17 planner. I got the one on the right, the neutral tones, so that I'll have a little more choice in customization.

Speaking of customization, I've been looking at the stickers for my new planner which is set to arrive in a few weeks. I've already decided that the best way to do stickers is to print my own onto sticker paper using templates found online. Pinterest was really great to use in helping me find some free sticker printables, I'll be sure to show you how those turn out when I make them.

In addition to the free printables, there were a couple of printable sets that I found on Etsy that I may end up getting because they're just so darn cute! I'm going to make another post soon dedicated to planner stickers, so keep your eyes open for that.

What I'm Binging On Netflix: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Last weekend, I had quite a bit of time to myself while my family was away on college visits. Instead of resuming one of my normal shows that I've been watching for a while, I decided that it was time to start something new. The thumbnail image was a pop of color so it really stood out amongst the other TV shows, and in terms of content, it really sets itself aside from other shows I've watched in the past.

The show stars comedienne Rachel Bloom as Rebecca Bunch, a big-time lawyer in New York City who decides to move cross-country to a tiny LA suburb in pursuit of a guy she dated for two months at summer camp when she was 16. The more you watch the show, the more it makes you question if she's actually the crazy one in comparison to all the people she meets. (Spoiler alert: She's definitely crazy.)

I think the absolute best thing about this show is the musical numbers. They do about 2 musical numbers per episode spanning across every genre you could ever think of and they're hilarious. I've embedded the YouTube video of one of my favorite songs from the show below.

The episodes were about 45 minutes a piece on Netflix and there were 18 episodes in the first season. I was able to watch all the episodes in a two day span with some dedication. The second season is set to come out this Fall and I'm super excited to watch it!
