Erin Condren Life Planner (or how I organize my life after college.)


Hey y'all,

So on Friday right before work a wonderful package came to my door. It was my Erin Condren Life Planner. Here are a few pictures and my first ever vlog(if it ever works) which compares my Lilly Pulitzer planner with my new E.C. Life Planner (excuse me looking crazy/wearing my UNC hoodie and my lazy eye. I decided to film Sunday after working from 4am-1:30pm so I was ready for a nap before dinner.) I am also linking up with Meredith of The Tichenor Family blog for her Life Planner Link-Up.
Well let's get started.
The beautiful box as delivered by FedEx
Upon opening.
The really cute (EXTRA) stickers with my name on them!
My Life Planner. It has my full name on it so for safety I covered up my last name.
 It is the Taffy design with my own colorway of pink and navy.
This week!
The notes section is where I put the ruler provided.
The extra goodies.
(excuse my rambling)

Also, yesterday right before I posted my Liebster Blog Award, SHF of The Chronicles of S nominated me as well, so instead of doing even more facts, I am going to answer her questions.

1) If you could live in any city, which one would you choose? 
A big city in the South most likely. Think Atlanta, Raleigh, Charlotte, Houston, Dallas, Charleston, etc.
2) What is your wardrobe staple?
A perfect fitting  pair of jeans.
3) If you could invite anyone to dinner, who would it be?
Hmmm. Probably all of my sorority sisters since I miss them terribly especially my Big whom I haven't seen since October!
4) Blackberry, iPhone, or Android?
I would love an iPhone but I currently have a non-smart phone after my last one got lost in the library during Finals in December. Less than a year until I get to upgrade!
5) What is your favourite unofficial holiday (e.g.: Ice Cream Day)?
Besides my Birthday and half-birthday, I would probably go with the date my sorority was founded since I think Phi Beta Chi has truly shaped who I am and influenced a large number of my friends and experiences over the last 4 years.
6) Which magazine(s) do you read every month?
I currently don't have any magazine subscriptions. I however do love on rare occasions to glance through Glamour, Vogue, Seventeen, Cosmo, Southern Living, and a few more.
7) Where is your favourite vacation spot?
I love the beach. I especially love small non-commercialized beaches like Topsail, NC and the Outerbanks. Small and quiet is the way to go for me.
8) What is (or was) the most interesting class you've taken?
I loved a lot of my classes at UNC (minus calculus and chemistry) so I will write down a few I loved. Introduction to Museum Studies, History of the Medieval Church, Art History of the Illuminated Manuscript, Victorian Literature and Contemporary Issues, 19th Century British Fiction, Medieval Art in Western Europe, Gender and Imperialism, and many more.
9) Which of your birthday parties has been your favourite?  What was the theme?
I loved my 18th Birthday. We went mini-golfing and it was perfect weather considering my birthday is in January. I actually have never really hated any birthday except for ones that fall on Superbowl Sunday. 
10) If you could guest star on any TV show, which one would you choose?
THE CHEW! I would love to be on What Not to Wear or Say Yes to the Dress but not as a guest star. If you have never seen The Chew go to Hulu and watch an episode. Basically it is a cooking show every afternoon at 1pm et. on ABC with hillarious personalities like Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, Daphene Oz, Mario Batali, and Michael Symon. I mean, yesterday's episode was about State Fair food and they had a butter cow. Come on.
11) What & where is your favourite building (e.g.: the Getty Museum in LA)?
This is really hard after living in Europe since there are many gorgeous buildings and churches. I would probably go with the Louvre in Paris, France. I love the mix of contemporary glass features and the original architecture of the time it served as a royal residence. 

As always if you have any questions or concerns email me or write a comment!


  1. Fabulous post, love! If you get a sec, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my latest post for xo

  2. The life planner is so worth the money! I have one and I cannot wait to order one for next year :)

  3. Your vlog isn't working. Totally agree about the Life Planner though. I love mine.


Thanks for the sweet note!
