Beauty Log Planner Using The "Hello Beautiful" Happy Planner™


I'm really excited about getting back into blogging and producing more YouTube content. However, I needed a way to organize all of my ideas that I stumble upon especially when I see inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest. Then I thought about it .. why not literally merge beauty and the love for planning together? Sure! Great idea! It was perfect timing when I saw some stamps on to help me with the memory keeping in my brand new "Hello Beautiful" Happy Planner™. 

Here are the three stamps that I knew I just had to have: Plan To Glow, Beauty Log and Skincare Routine


Want to see how it all came together? Watch my newest Youtube video below. 

 I hope you guys like my layout and the start of a new planner for me! I'll be updating you on my progress. 



Welcome to the new 2016-2017 Happy Planner™ BLOG HOP featuring posts by the me & my BIG ideas Design Team! I’m excited to give you a tour and show you the style of my new 'Hello Life'  Happy Planner™. It doesn't start till July but I'll share with you how I plan on using it.

I first laid eyes on all of the new Happy Planners ™ at CHA this year and I couldn't contain myself! WOW! So many styles to choose from how could I just pick one?! Talk about #planneraddictproblems! It took me awhile to choose "THE ONE" at the mambi Design Team meet-up that I could add to my existing Happy Planner™ collection. I knew I wanted one that had softer colors since 2 of my other planners had bolder brighter color themes.

Finally I chose the 'Hello Life' Happy Planner ™. Here are some points on why I chose this beauty over the rest: 

  • I've been into soft watercolor patterns lately and if you are like me then you'll love this planner. You'll see washes of pink, teal, yellow, and gold touches. 
  • The font used throughout the planner is really pretty and different from the other planners in my collection. 
  • One of the features of the 'Hello Life' Happy Planner™ that really caught my eye are the weekend ombre patterns. SO PRETTY! They go from dark to light. 
  • The Monthly Prep Page fits my style. I like how everything is laid out and the 'Currently" section will be used a lot to prep my month. 
  • The monthly tab photos are gorgeous! Each month's photo ties in with the overall theme of the planner nicely. 


I plan on using my planner as my personal and work planner when July comes around. I'm so happy that the MORNING, AFTERNOON, and EVENING headlines have been removed. This gives me the freedom to  make my own headlines and make the planner fit my schedule and gives me more freedom to be creative. 

Don't forget to grab the matching washi tape- Hello Life Washi Tape when you pick-up your new planner on March 1st right from the mambi website!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Keep the HOP going by heading over to mambi Design Team member Cassie’s blog to see which Happy Planner™ she's got her hands on!

GOODBYE 2015, HELLO 2016!

Taking some time today to make goals for the New Year and I couldn’t help but reflect back on 2015. I’ve done so much and accomplished goals/dreams that I didn’t even think I could. I would say that 2015 was a planner adventure for me. It made me think how much I love this planner community and truly enjoy creative planning. I always thought my life would be the beauty industry (it still is, my heart still loves makeup) but this new change in my career has brought my so much joy and happiness. It's nice to have a "change of pace" and I'm so happy I found my change in 2015. 

Early last year I started the Pacific Northwest Planner Group- a little group for planners in the area to get together and share their love for planning. The first meet-up of 35 people in my condo's owner's lounge was the little spark that ignited the flame. Little did I know I would be planning planner parties with my friend Rhondalei and watching the group grow and grow to now 550 members!. I can’t wait to celebrate the one year birthday of this group which has brought the Seattle/Vancouver, BC and Portland planners together.

I’ve been blessed to be part of 3 design teams- The Planner Society,  Studio l2e and Me & My Big Ideas. To be selected to be on a design team is an honor and I'm so thankful that these companies chose me to represent them.  I love spreading my passion and creativity with all of you.

A big dream/goal of mine was to own my own business. However, I always wanted it be beauty related since I am a makeup artist but this year everything changed. Thanks to my planner friend Sierra who shared my homemade page flag stickers that I sent her on her IG .. my little pocket letter filler turned into a full blown business. Villabeautifful has been my brand since the very beginning of my makeup career and now it’s revolving into something and it’s such a good feeling! The comments from all of YOU, my customers, have made me want to strive for bigger and better things for VB. I couldn’t be happier and more blessed for this community and how all of you have impacted my life. THANK YOU! I’m excited to see what 2016 holds for me and Villabeautifful- can’t wait to share it with all of you! 

Planner Society Oct Kit


For those of you who are regular subscribers to The Planner Society Monthly Kits you'll agree with me that October was just beautiful! I'm a lover of florals and jewel toned hues so when I first laid my hands on the kit it was a match made in heaven. 

Each month Christy Tomlinson puts together the cutest embellishments from sticky notes, stickers and whatever her creative mind can think of. I'm always in awe when I receive my monthly kits. Even though I've been a Creative Team member from the very beginning I still sit down and look at each item and say to myself "I don't want to use this, it's too pretty!" 

I always get asked what's my favorite product or embellishment in each kit. For this month it would have to be the floral print papers (blue background one and the orange one). The colors just pop!

Take a look on how I used the kit to decorate my new black Kate Spade Planner and Traverler's Notebook Insert.
