My favourite planning stickers for my Erin Condren Life Planner

I've had my Erin Condren life planner for a few months now and my sticker obsession has well and truly kicked in! If you have have an EC planner you'll know what I'm talking about. It's easy to get carried away and it can be a VERY expensive habit especially if you live in the UK as many of the best Etsy stores are based in the U.S so postage can get very expensive.

I've tried to be really selective and only buy stickers I'll really use and so far I haven't ended up with anything I don't need. The best way to get started is to make a list of all the activities, hobbies, work commitments and family commitments that you need to track and/or plan and then search Etsy for those specific things. If you just search for Erin Condren planner stickers you'll see so many pretty things you just 'have' to get that your bank balance will be in the red before you can say washi! Another tip is to try and get as many of the different stickers you want from the same etsy shop. If each set of stickers you want are all from different shops the postage will really mount up.

So here are some of my favourites of the moment

Healthy 'clean eating' challenge

I'm finally done with diets. It's only taken me about ten years to come to this conclusion. I've counted weight watchers points, Slimming world syns, weighed and measured things, counted calories, eaten cabbage soup, lived on slimming shakes and everything else you can think of. Now I'm tired of it.

I've finally decided it's time to just be healthy, cut the junk food and cut the emotional and boredom eating. I won't be weighing, measuring or counting anything but I plan to cut out refined sugar, processed food, additives and white pasta, rice and bread. Any big change to your diet is never easy but I'm determined to finally be healthy. Recently I've had a bad run of eating junk food and I feel like my body is begging to be treated better. I was constantly feeling lethargic, having stomach upsets and just generally feeling awful and decided enough is enough. It feels like

Erin Condren life planner - basic weekly setup with stickers

Hey everyone,

I've had my Erin Condren life planner for around a month now and I'm hooked! I didn't even know they existed until a friend told me she had one and once I'd visited the Erin Condren website and read some blogs about them I knew I had to have one. They have a great range of designs available which you can personalize in lots of different ways. I went for this one as it reminded me of my wedding colors :)

I'm going to get the topic of cost out of the way

Mini beauty blender review

I've had the regular beauty blender for a while now and when I saw the mini version I knew I had to have it. I picked them up at Sephora for $17.95 for a pack of two

I love the full size beauty blender for applying foundation and got the mini version to use with concealer. I know some people use the regular beauty blender for this but I've always found it

Review of Virgin Atlantic upper deck (the bubble) on Boeing 747-400

I always fly with Virgin Atlantic on my trips to the U.S but until this year I'd never managed to get a seat on the upper deck and the first few times I flew with them I didn't even know it existed. It used to be dedicated to premium economy passengers but after the fleet was refurbished they added some economy seating up there and on our recent trip to Orlando we managed to snag some upper deck seats. There are only 33 economy seats up there so if you want one you have to grab it quick. Virgin Atlantic have recently changed the way you pre book seats and have started charging

tarte Amazonian clay full coverage foundation review

I've used Estee Lauder Doublewear foundation for years and I'm always on the lookout for other full coverage foundations that are also really long wearing. I saw the Tarte amazonian clay full coverage foundation on the Sephora website and decided to pick some up on my recent trip to Florida. I may be wrong but I don't think it's available in stores here in the UK but Sephora definitely ship to the UK now. The foundation is formulated with Amazonian clay, without chemicals or oil and also has SPF 15

They have a really good range of shades which is great as I always struggle to find foundation that suits my yellow toned skin but the shade

Favourite drugstore matte lip products

Hey everyone,

I've definitely needed to cheer things up with a bit of colour lately as the weather here in England is cold, dark and miserable. I tend to wear much bolder, brighter colours in the winter to brighten things up a bit so I thought I'd share my current faves

Sigma dry n shape review - show your brushes some love!

I'm ashamed to say that I'm one of those people who doesn't wash their makeup brushes enough. I use a brush sanitizer spray to keep them free of bacteria but I don't give them a full wash as often as I should.

It may be partly down to laziness but as I use them every day I actually find it difficult being able to wash and dry them before I need to use them again. I discovered the sigma dry n shape online quite some time ago but it's one of those items I never got around to buying so I was thrilled when my mum bought it for me for my birthday

Travalo perfume atomiser

Yes, this is another post about travel friendly beauty items. I seriously have an obsession with anything beauty related that is sized for travel or is somehow more compact to save space.

My latest find is the Travalo perfume atomiser
