SUGAR PAPER PLANNER REVIEW


I have a thing for planners all office supplies in general! Growing up, the most exciting part about school was buying my supplies on the first day each year. Anyone else with me on this? Fast forward to now... I'm still the exact same way, only my taste has gotten better ;) hashtag all gold everything. I was so excited when Blue Sky sent over these gorgeous Sugar Paper x Target planners for me to review. They're sold out in a lot of Target stores so it's pretty hard to get your hands on them!


The large gold kraft paper planner above is my favorite! The months are divided by tabs and there are extra pages in the back for note taking. So much room for planning in this one!



For the calendars, I was sent the monthly dalmatian print wall calendar. It's really cute but on the small side. The pink/white page pictured is the inside of the small gold polka dotted planner shown below. I love this one!



This is the inside of the medium gold planner. This one is gorgeous but not the easiest to write in. I prefer the spiral planners because they can lay flat but that's just my preference!


These are my two picks for 2015. As my main planner I'll be using the gold kraft paper planner and will carry the small gold planner around in my bag! All in all I think these planners are all gorgeous. I love the gold detailing and think they are great quality. Have you picked up any of the Sugar Paper planners yet? Which one is your fave? Let me know in the comments below!

Stay tuned for an Instagram exclusive GIVEAWAY later today! Follow me @fancythingsblog to enter! I'll put all the details here once it goes live.

GIVING BACK FOR THE HOLIDAYS


As a society, we tend to focus more on ourselves and less on others. But as the holiday season is approaching, it's important to think of ways to give back to those that are less fortunate. An item that I own that is special to me is my pair of glasses from Warby Parker. Purchasing them a few years ago was extremely satisfying knowing that through my purchase, someone in need received a free pair of glasses as well.

There are so many amazing organizations like Warby Parker that give back every single day! One company I've always admired is TOMS. Starting November 16th, for every TOMS for Target limited edition gift purchased, Target is giving a pair of shoes, a blanket or a week of meals to those in need. I'm looking forward to shopping the collection while supporting such a great cause this season!


SWEATER: Nordstrom, SCARF: Nordstrom, LEGGINGS: Old, love these!, GLASSES: Warby Parker (similar), BAG: Tory Burch, HEELS: Old, (similar), NECKLACE: c/o Lilli & Tori (similar), WATCH: Michele, RING: David Yurman, BRACELETS: c/o Sun & Stone, c/o Moon & Lola, c/o SoCal Gems, LIPS: 'Rebel'
