Think Time: 2017 Journal Planner Review

Think Time: 2017 Journal Planner Review + Giveaway

Ever since I was young, I have been a planner. One of my favorite gifts were day planners and calendars. Each time I received a new planner or calendar I would spend the next couple hours making note of important birthdays, events and important school dates.

Now that I am older, I still love planners but like them to be a little more than just dates and space to write events. Ideally, a planner can help me plan, but also inspire me to think bigger, and set goals.

As the blog grows, I find my dreams growing so this year I decided that it was time I get a planner that will not only make note of dates, but also give me a place to brainstorm and dream. When I began looking for the perfect planner I came across the Think Time Journal Planner.

Bain de Terre: Raspberry Plum Color Enhancing Hair Care Duo Review

Bain de Terre: Raspberry Plum Color Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner Review + Giveaway

There are few colors that I am unwilling to dye my hair – even deep reds. I have no fear. Once upon a time many years ago I decided to take my sandy blond hair and make it deep strawberry blond. At the time I did not tell anyone, and for most of my friends I provided them with a shock and awe they never saw coming.

Since then, while I have little fear, I understand how lucky I am with my sandy blonde “California girl” color. I still love to give friends and family a little shock and awe, when I saw a color enhancing line and colors of hair care from Bain de Terre I knew this would maintain natural look I have come to love.
