It’s Fri-YAY and as I look down at my mile-long to-do list, I’m reminded of why I’m SO excited to share a secret with you all. But first…I have a confession. I may be a small business owner and living the self-employed dream, but this girl is sometimes a bit…scatterbrained (okay, maybe more than just sometimes). While I’ve always had the A-type personality traits of being driven and working hard, the whole “being organized” part of the equation never quite made it into my DNA, so as hard as I try, I’ve always struggled with forgetfulness, and yes, sometimes, messiness. As a business owner who’s daily job involves dozens of never-ending tiny tasks, you can probably imagine how difficult it can be for me to make sure all of my ducks are in a row, every day. That’s why I’m SO excited to introduce you to my new BFF for both A-types, B-types, and in-betweeners like me, The Timeless Planner by Lauren James Co.

If you’re anything like me, the act of physically writing down things is essential. Yes, I have a Google calendar that I also set up alerts on, but when I physically write something down, it is much more likely to get done, and has a better chance of not being forgotten as things so often do when life gets too busy. Because I’ve always been what many would call an over-achiever, I quickly learned in middle school that juggling several independent subjects with homework, projects and tests of their own would require extra organization, so I found a solution: a planner. And I was obsessed. Of course, the creative, color-infatuated side of me also had to have gel pens and highlighters in every color of the rainbow so I could color-coordinate each of my classes in my planner, as well as some stickers to jazz things up.
I guess I haven’t changed all that much since I was 12, because I’m still color coordinating in my planner. So when I found the Timeless Planner by Lauren James, complete with gorgeous colorful prints to separate each month and stickers to use for parties, holidays, birthdays and more, I fell in love! In case you haven’t heard of Lauren James before, it is a lifestyle brand started by girl boss registered nurse-turned fashion designer Lauren with a focus on clothing and accessories that are colorful, feminine and classic with a perfect touch of preppy.
Running this little blog of mine calls for extra planning, including weekly and monthly goals, so I was even more tickled to find sections for both monthly, weekly and daily goals in my Lauren James Timeless Planner. What’s even better? The planner focuses not just on goals but on health, with a water intake tracker, weekly meal planning and workout planning sections listed for each date. I mean could a planner get any more perfect?
Last of all, I absolutely adore the fact that the planner allows you to fill in the dates for the month, so you can buy the planner year-round instead of having to wait for January or August to upgrade your planner (or waste half of the months as I have so often in the past). So whether you’re killing it in the corporate world, busy as a bee as a stay at home momma, or a business owner like me, the Lauren James Timeless Planner is the ultimate tool for every girl boss.
So what are you waiting for? Scoop up a Lauren James Timeless planner in one of three stunning prints for yourself today!
