Etsy Planner Sticker Haul

Hey all ! I am once again back with another planner sticker haul. This has quickly become a huge addiction but also an outlet. Starting with BellaDiva Designs Paper Co, I was super impressed how she included the card stock to protect the stickers but also made it into her business card and thank you card.

From her shop located in Ontario (Yay Canadian sellers!) I ordered her road trip stickers and credit card. I ordered from her shop on the 12th of August and received it in the mail on 18th of august. Which is such an incredible shipping time and processing time but I also do live in the same province as her so I guess it is average. My stickers came in a purple paper envelope and she also included some single freebies that can be seen above. Her paper quality is honestly one of the best that I have ever ordered from! 

The next shop I ordered from is Let’s Plan It, who is also another Canadian seller! i just love the colours of her stickers, they are one of my favourite! I’ve purchased from her before but this time I ordered two sheets of her planner stickers. My order came in a paper envelope which included a thank you card, freebie and a business card. I was super excited to see that she started making her business card! I ordered from her August 17th and received my order on the 25th.

Budget Friendly Plans is a Canadian seller located in Niagara Falls, I purchased her credit card stickers. My stickers came in a bubble mailer with card stock to protect my stickers, which is awesome because it provides more protection. She included her business card, a thank you card and some freebies. I ordered from her August 12 and received my stickers August 18th.

Planner Stickers Plus is a Canadian shop whom I ordered from on August 12th and received my stickers on August 18th.  I ordered her pink and gold full boxes, her movie variety set and balloon stickers. She included a thank you card and some freebies.

I love her balloon stickers, probably one of the best I have seen so far!   Planner Stickies is also a Canadian seller and I was so excited to have found her shop! She has the best characters for such an affordable price! I purchased them each for $3.00! I purchased the Beauty and the beast, Lion King, Super Mario inspired stickers and some donut ones. I ordered from her on August 20 and received my stickers on August 25.

My stickers came in a paper envelope with a clear plastic but not like some of the other ones it was more of a sandwich bag but not really one if that makes any sense. She did not include a business card or thank you card but she did include a freebie. Her stickers are the cutest! 

A Sticky Monster is a shop that I have ordered from previously and she has great stickers for an affordable price. I ordered her movie marquee, film reel and her travel set. She included her business card, some freebies but no thank you card. My stickers came in a harder envelope (the ones thicker than card stock) wrapped in the plastic. I ordered from her on August 10th and received my package on August 20.

Now I am not one to go crazy for Kawaii stickers but I came across this shop Stick With Me Shop and I went crazy! Not only are her stickers super affordable for the amount you get, she is also Canadian and located in Toronto! I purchased 2 different sheets of her university/college stickers, money variety, clean brushes and some movie ones. 

I ordered from her on August 10th and received them on August 20th. In this case the processing time took longer than the shipping but I can’t blame her this is one of the only Kawaii shops that I do enjoy very much! My stickers came in a paper envelope and she used card stock to print my invoice and use that as another layer of protection for my stickers aside from the plastic she used to wrap them. She included a thank you sticker with some freebies. I definitely recommend for you fellow planners to check her shop out!

Paper n Roses is a new shop that is located in Toronto and I took full advantage of her opening sale ! She was super sweet and provided me with awesome customer service when it came to my purchase! I ordered her heart full boxes, heart washi, engagement rings, her wedding full box stickers, and her pink and gold sticker set which is sold separately but she has the washi, full boxes, heart checklist and and headers.   

As you can see this is her full boxes and I just fell in love with them!
IMG_6980    Above are the images of her gold and pink set and I really do like the quality of her stickers for such a wonderful price. 

I ordered from her August 14 and I received my stickers on August 21. She packaged them in a paper envelope with card stock to protect and a hand written thank you card but no business card. She included her glossy freebie and another freebie sheet that I believe you need to have written a code on the notes which I did not or something that i felt I didn’t qualify for but she was so sweet and included it in my order.  

Paper Loving Mommy has got to be one of my favourite shops and the quality of her stickers are out of this world. If I could purchase everything in her shop I would! I ordered from her on August 12th and received my package on August 27th. I ordered her weekend banner, Mint Rose Series and her to do half boxes. She did not included a business or thank you card but she did include a freebie. My stickers came in a hard envelope covered in plastic. I am in love with her shop and definitely recommend it to everyone. She does have tracking on her shipping but I did find that it was kind of slow to update you by a couple of days, which by no means is her fault. Her prices are a little higher compared to some of the other shops I have mentioned but it is worth it!

Planner Press stickers were ordered August 14th and I received them on August 27. It came packaged in a hard envelope and included her freebie with a bookmark that has her business information and some other stuff. Her heart weekend banners are to die for! 

Nicole hutch Designs stickers were ordered on August 12th and I received them on August 28th. I ordered her Pink Lemonade full boxes and and her weekly kit in glossy. My stickers came in a paper envelope, card stock to protect and some plastic. She included her business card, thank you card, freebie and this memo card stock which I am not 100% sure what I will use it for. I cannot wait to use this in a spread!

Organised Chaotic Fun (Spelt that exact way) is the last shop i’ll be talking about. I ordered from the shop on August 18th and received it on August 28th which I would say is pretty good because she is located in Australia. I ordered her princess set, Wizard of OZ inspired set and some Kawaii weather stickers. My package came in a paper envelope and she did not include a business card, thank you card or freebie.

So finally this is the last of my massive sticker haul! I have very quickly become obsessed with planning! Until next time!


MAMBI Happy Planner Overview & First Impression

Hey Planner Addicts! Today I will be doing an overview and first impressions on the MAMBI Happy Planner that I recently picked up. A couple of weeks ago I made another post about the Ban.Do planner that I had purchased and don’t get my wrong that is an awesome planner for those who really like the horizontal layout but I’ve had my heart set on a vertical layout ever since I set my eyes on the Erin Condren. Unwillingly to pay the almost $91 at the time because of the planner itself, shipping and conversion I wanted to look into alternatives. A lot of people suggested the Plum Paper Planner but unfortunately it was going to be roughly the same, maybe $10-$15 cheaper. When I was ready to lose hope I found the MAMBI Happy Planner online! it was priced at $24.99 online and a fellow blogger had posted a ton of pictures of their product on their blog on Michaels. Thankfully my Michaels is one of the few cities in Canada that do have the planners! Priced at $34.95CAD before tax was a steal and Michaels is amazing they always have coupons so I used a 30% off coupon and got the planner for $27CAD with taxes! There are 4 different cover options for this planner. I went with everyday is a gift planner. The front and back are laminated which I love!

The coils are plastic and have hearts. One thing that makes this planner great is that it is customizable because you can actually remove or add the pages! I haven’t added any pages but it is really nice to know that I have that option. You can also change the coils, I believe they are roughly $9CAD before taxes at Michaels. 

This is the first page that has the 2015-2016 on it. On the sides you can see there are actually tabs for each month and I love that it is slightly thicker.
  This is the second page of the planner. One thing I did notice versus the planner there is pretty much no artwork but it’s still amazing. 

Now this planner starts in July but I removed it because I got in August so I didn’t feel there was a need to keep it. All the months have this page where on the top it gives you the previous monthly view, current and upcoming. They give you space for birthdays, special events, important dates, don’t forget and goals for each month. I’m not sure if I’ll use this much but it’s a great option to have because there is no notes pages. 

They have a monthly view that had a space for notes on the side. 

Lastly what makes this so much like the Erin condren is the vertical layout which is what I fell in love with ! The boxes are slightly taller but the width is the same. On the left side it has the monthly view and some space to write notes. It does have the morning, afternoon and evening spots like the old Erin condren which I know annoyed some people but personally it doesn’t really bother me. It also has slightly coloured weekend boxes to match the colour scheme but personally doesn’t bother me and can be easily covered up if I wanted to do a different colour scheme. One thing to add is that the days of the week is also black so makes it a lot easier to plan different colours. One thing I do worry about with this planner is how long the pages are going to hold because they do have a little slit to remove and add so I’m worried that after a couple months it’ll fall out. Overall I am super impressed and excited to continue to plan in this planner! It is definitely a great alternative to to Erin condren. Happy planning planners !

Incredible By Victoria Secret Front Close Sport Bra Review

Hey all, today I’m coming back with this sports bra from Victoria Secret! Now a few months back I had written up a review on one of Victoria Secrets other bras then they released this bra. It retails for $59.95 CAD without taxes. What makes this sports bra probably one of the best is that it had a zipper at the front which allows for you to easily remove it. Currently they have 15 colours but I assume that changes and is categorized as one of their maximum support bras. I’ve machine washed it several times and it is still going strong.

There are adjustable straps and a cushion wire to help with cushioned support. Overall it’s an extremely comfortable bra and helps a lot more with the shoulder blade pain I was feeling with the other bra. Although it does have the higher price tag compared to other companies I would say it is definitely worth it. It does a fantastic job in supporting while working out. The only thing I do have to say is a con is that at first it was kind of hard to take off and put on the zipper at first but then as it gets used more it is a lot better. Another thing is the straps tend to get a little twisted and you have to keep adjusting it. Overall I do recommend this sports bra!
