  • Decorate Your Wellness Planner with These Wellness Stickers

    wellness stickers valerie pierre mommyrandr

    Now that you’ve got your wellness planner it’s time to decorate it, and what better way to do that than with wellness stickers. I’m gonna be super honest with you I had a really hard time finding self-care/wellness stickers. Which I’m really surprised by because I would have thought with the number of self-care/wellness planners and journals there would have been a wider selection of stickers to match.

    But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t find any stickers. I came across a few stickers that are worth checking out. They come in a wide range of design and colors, perfect for any style of planner you may have.

  • 3 Undated Wellness Planners You Need in Your Life Right Now

    Wellness Planners valerie pierre mommyrandr

    I’ve been on the hunt for some dope undated wellness planners for a long time. I like undated planners because while I enjoy planning I only work in them sporadically throughout the year. And I’m looking for wellness specifically cause, duh, self-care. My search paid off a little bit. I found three planners that are the same in theme but are different in style and how they allow us to plan out time to take care of ourselves.

    Of the three wellness planners, I really loved the ban.do planner. While I’m obsessed with black I love the bright colors and the breakdown of the sections. I’m going to order it so I can get a real look at it. (*Update: I ordered it. Here’s my review on it.)

    For 2019 I’ve been using a Pipsticks & Workman planner. I like it and would definitely use it again, just wish it wasn’t dated since I haven’t really used. I really need to get on that so I can 1 – create the habit and 2 – make the purchase worth it. That said, I’m looking forward to my new 2020 planner and all the fun I’m going to occasionally have with it.

    *Update: Here’s a roundup of wellness stickers for your wellness planner.

  • Building My Empire with the 2019 Pipsticks + Workman Planner

    For the past month and a half, I’d been eyeing this 2019 Pipsticks + Workman planner in Barnes & Noble. Every time I go in there the display case whisper calls me, “Vaaaalerieeeee. Vaaaalerieeeee. Buy me, Valerie.”

    After thumbing through this planner every other day I was in the store I finally whispered back…

    So here I am with yet another planner. I gave up on my bullet planner months ago. Not cause I didn’t like doing it but cause all the work that I had to put into it. It was beginning to drain me and I don’t wanna feel drained while playing with washi.

    But now that I’ve got this bad boy in my possession I’m pretty hype about it. This is Pipsticks first line of planners. They teamed up with Workmans Publishing and I think they came out pretty damned cute. Out of the three covers I chose the typewriter, for obvious reasons. The other covers were oversized shades and roller skates.

    Out the gate, I liked how simple and fun the cover looked. I especially love the falling letters that are sprinkled in with the dotted background. Then it was the size. It wasn’t so big or heavy that I couldn’t carry this everywhere I went, and it wasn’t too small that I couldn’t really jot any info in it. It’s literally just right. I also liked that there was a lot of space to write. I write pretty big and sloppily so I need all the space I can get, especially in the daily layout.

    Let’s take a closer look at the Pipsticks planner

    This planner comes with two pockets. A clear ziplock that comes with cute hello card and stickers (not shown).

    6 seasonal pages of stickers. Plus VIP access to Pipsticks Printables Library (not shown).

    2019 and 2020 calendar spread.

    The back of the planner has several sheets of patterned notepaper.

    The second pocket comes in the form of a sleeve in the back with the two bands.

    Cute right? And check it, Pipsticks + Workman didn’t stop with planners. They have a whole collection of sticker and goal books. Now I haven’t gotten anything more than the planner but I did see the now sold out sticker books in the bookstore. From what I can remember I thought they were cute but I’m not a sticker person like that to really go crazy. I was just drawn to the planner. But I spend a lot of time in B&N so if there’s anything left over in the display and report back.

  • 10 BRANDS I’M DIGGING FROM THE NATIONAL STATIONERY SHOW

    national stationery show mommyrandr valerie pierre

    The National Stationery Show is an annual trade event that takes place in NYC. Stationery store owners from all over the world descend on the Javits Center to showcase and scope out the latest in stationery products.

    This year there were more than 800+ business that were present. That is a lot of paper, my friends. I tried to see as many booths as I could but it was impossible. I spent two days there found a number of brands that I really loved. Some were already favorites and others were new discoveries for me since I’m new to the stationery and planner world. Of all the booths I visited I’m gonna to share 10 with that I really dug and I hope to learn more about them as I navigate my newfound hobby.

    Hadron Epoch

    NATIONAL STATIONERY SHOW Hadron Epoch valerie pierre mommyrandr

    These are the cutest pack of notebooks. I liked them because of their wide range of patterns and colors. The stitch binding and soft cover make it easy enough to go in almost any purse you have. The pages come lined, dotted and plain for various types writing and drawing. There are no limits to what you can use these journals for.

    Set of 3 Patterned Notebooks | BUY

    Free Period Press

    national stationery show mommyrandr valerie pierre free period press

    Not everyone is into planner books. I get it, they can be intimidating and/or just too pretty to even write in for fear of messing it up. Some people like simple. That’s why I liked the Schedule Magic desk pad. It’s small enough to go in a corner on your desk, yet big enough to jot down your entire schedule.

    See what’s hot off the press | BUY

    PleaseNotes

    national stationery show mommyrandr valerie pierre pleasenotes

    These just aren’t your regular run of the mill journals, these are affirmation/inspirational based journals. They are set up so that we have conversations with ourselves. They have questions and activities to help you uncover parts of you that you didn’t know existed. I especially love the quotes on each page. Another fav were the mirror decals. You just stick it on and every day as you do your hair or makeup you can speak your truth.

    Webster’s Pages

    national stationery show mommyrandr valerie pierre webster's pages

    I love a good ole fashioned spiral notebook but I just don’t care for the ole fashioned feel. I use notebooks to jot down notes and other important information. Yes, we live in the age of phone memos and Google drive but I just like the idea of pen (or pencil) and paper. Webster’s also has some dope ass travel notebooks as well. The covers come in a number of styles and the small notebook that come with it has lined or plain pages. The inner notebooks don’t have that many pages but not to worry you can buy replacement ones and keep on planning.

    Plan your next adventure | BUY

    Design Loop

    national stationery show mommyrandr valerie pierre design loop

    The Wit & Delight collection by Design Loop is simplicity at its finest. The solid color and block lettering easily stood out in a sea of the trendy hot pink, teal and rose gold. If you follow Wit & Delight online then you know this collection is a true reflection of their clean style aesthetic. In this collection, you’ll find journals (lined and bulleted), notebooks, desktop calendars and other accessories.

    Check out the Wit & Delight collection | BUY

    My Infinite Agenda

    national stationery show mommyrandr valerie pierre my infinite agenda

    I liked these planners cause each color is connected to a different charity. It’s always great to help others while treating yourself. Read more about those charities on their website under the Product with Purpose tab. Be warned this planner is thick and heavy. This is a desk planner, not one to have in your purse every day. I wouldn’t consider it just a planner its a place for you to map your long-term dreams and goals.

    Good Juju Ink

    national stationery show mommyrandr valerie pierre good juju ink

    Good Juju literally stopped me in my tracks with their artwork. The prints are apart of their Egypt Collection – which is coming at the end of July. It will have matching prints and planners that feature (from left to right) Cleopatra, Pharaoh Hatshepsut, and Queen Nefertiti. I was lucky enough to snag all three prints from the show. (Thanks again!) They are gorgeous! I sadly, can’t say much about the planner cause I forgot to look inside, doh! That’s okay when this planner drops we’ll learn about it together.

    Rude Love

    national stationery show mommyrandr valerie pierre rude love

    I have a potty mouth and sometimes most times those cutesy Hallmark cards just can’t express how I really feel. Which is why I rarely do cards. But when I saw that big ass ‘Well Fuck’ card I knew I had found my tribe with Rude Love creator Jenn. For the record, these aren’t for everyone I know. My mom will still get those Hallmark cards she loves so much but the man and my friends will totally get one of these.

    Send some Rude Love | BUY

    Of Unusual Kind

    national stationery show mommyrandr valerie pierre of unusual kind

    These are not your childhood paper dolls. These are chic modern paper dolls that can be for play or for decorative purposes. Each doll comes with a name and backstory. I liked Willow (black one on the left) I felt a connection to her, and we kinda look alike so that’s always a plus!

    The Happiness Planner

    Bruh! This is a serious planner right here. The first thing that stood out to me were the color block covers. You can’t tell from this image but the cover looks and feels like cloth. The binding, accessories and framed metal edges give it a nice luxe touch. This is planner is like a brick giving you an entire page for each day to not only fill out your schedule but to also talk about what you’re grateful for and what your hopes are the year. It also gives you tips on how to live your happy life to the fullest. It’s expensive but I think it’s totally worth the price.
