Sparkle Fax

I have been a long time (I am talking 10 year) user of the Franklin Covey system.  It has never failed me.  This year I have been introduced into a whole new craze in organizational fun.  Now you all know that the Filofax has been around for years....I mean the 1920's!!!  But with the dawn of social media it has had a completely new resurgence.

Some fun facts about the company Filofax:

Filofax  a UK based company has for years been know for making quality leather personal organizers.  Interesting to learn that this company was originally known as Lefax and was in fact a US based company out of Philly.  The company exported a large amount of their product to the UK under the brand name Filofax.

When I started to learn about this and the resurgence in this item, I was so intrigued with what I found.  Not only was the quality and color of the product amazing, but there was now so much that one can do with their own Filofax to be able to customize it and make it all their own.  I spent some time checking out instagram #Filofaxlove as well as reading blogs about what people have been doing with their organizational systems.



I was so eager to get my hands on one myself and check out what all this was about.  I fell in love with the bright yellow.  Such a fun cheerful color that could work all year round.  I chose the personal size which is much smaller than what I have been using for years at the same time I wanted to try to down size. 

I got a little out of control....I purchased washi tape to decorate my pages.  I bought specialty paper to make my own tabs that better coordinated with the planner itself.  I found some really cute tabs and books marks to add some unique character to it.  It is still a work in progress as I am only on my second week with it but so far I absolutely love it and look forward to opening it up every day.

The Thong Song

How do  you organize all those little delicates?  It is so hard to find the right organization solution for those lacy thong and bras.

Here is a simple way to get those chonies straightened out in no time;

1. Empty out your entire drawer......




2. Go through all your bra and underwear -- throw out any that look too old or worn out.  You don't need those anymore....say bye.



3.  Purchase drawer organizers.  Here are some from Amazon that work great.




Once you have done this you can start to put things back together.  I always suggest putting your bras in the organizer starting from light to dark with light being in the front.

This is a simple organizing job that only needs to be done one time and you should be good......

Don't get caught with your pants down!!!!!  Get that drawer straightened out.

What are we all about here?

Oh how I love stars.....but do I love them this much?

I have been seeing some buzz about these new Stella McCartney jeans.  I am on the fence about them but the more I see them the more I want them!!  I think they would be a great addition to my spring wardrobe.  What do you think?
