Plan with Me- Rainbows

This week's theme is Rainbows. I have been wanting to do this theme in my planner for several months. Actually ever since last fall. I just had to get to it. At first I didn't have the stickers, that was back when I was purchasing printable stickers. Then once I got my Cricut I decided to wait until spring so it would fit the season better. I decided to choose a week in the spring and since this is the first week since Spring started that wasn't a holiday I got to do this this week.

I had so much fun with all the colors, it was so much fun figuring out how to make the spread work with the colors and keep the rainbow going across the page. I think it turned out really well. Here are some more photos if you want to take a closer look.

March 2016 Graze Box

I do love it when my newest Graze box arrives. It is so fun to see what was included and to try the new flavors that are inside the box.

So here is the top layer as it came in the mail.

And the bottom layer.

So I am going to give the popcorn a fair chance but I do not have high hopes. The last popcorn included in a box was really dry and flavorless and this one states on the package that it is “Twist of Black Pepper” and black pepper is really not one of my favorite flavors. I will pop it with an open mind however.

The Hot Pepper Jam with the little crackers is wonderful but I do love spicy. I did finish this one while editing the video and it did get progressively hotter as I ate. So keep that in mind if you get your hands on this treat. I will have to say that it does rank as one of my favorite packages so far.

The Garden of England is another one I am certain I will enjoy. I do love the dry fruit mixtures. They are sweet but not too sweet, just right for me. And the bonus in this one is the dried strawberries, something I don't see often around here but I do love them.

The Raspberry Coconut Muffin was a real disappointment I have to say. It has a flavor that I can't really identify but I don't care for it. And it is really too bad because I do love raspberries.

The Sweet Memphis Barbecue is going to be another on my favorite list. I really like the blend of flavors in this one.

The Honeycomb Flapjack is just okay. Like most of the Flapjacks, it is nothing special. I wish this one had more of the honeycomb flavor because it really misses on that.

The Soy Roasted Seeds is like a trip down memory lane because I used to eat sunflower seeds by the bagful in college. I am going to enjoy these soon.

And lastly the Chocolate Pretzels, what do I need to say it has chocolate! I am pretty sure this is the same chocolate mixture that came in a box a while back. That other time it was paired with some shortbread I think. I remember liking that one too.

March 2105 IPSY Bag

For the most part I am very happy with my IPSY bag this month. I think I will use most of the products and the bag is not bad either.

So here is the bag,Since the theme this month is spring I think the green bag with the flowers is very fitting.

The first product out of the bag this time is the Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum from First Aid Beauty. I actually got a chance to try this one and I really like it. I think over a short period of time it is going to make a visible difference. The sample in the bag contains 0.25 oz and since you use such a small amount I think it will last long enough to see how I like it and if it is working. The full size on the company website appears to be 1 oz and sells for $36.

The Nourish Organic Rejuvenating Rose Hip & Rose Water Body Oil Mistwas next to appear. The sample in the bag comes in a 0.5 oz size while the full size is 3 oz. The price for the full size is $19.99. Especially after reading the blurb about it on the website I am really looking forward to trying this one out.

The blush in the bag this time is from Pixi by Petra, and I have enjoyed the other products from this line that have been in previous bags. I am not sure how much larger the full size is but it does retail for $18. I just don't think that this particular color is going to work for me. I will have to play with it soon though and find out.

The eye shadow from Vera Mona looks okay but it is just definitely not a color I would choose to purchase. Since I have it I will play with it and see how I like it though. I am not finding very much about this product online. It appears that the color I got is available in a palette but I am not sure about being able to purchase the individual shadow colors.

The NYX lipstick in probably my favorite thing in the bag. Finally a color I can actually wear! It looks like the product sells for $7 and I am certain this is a full size so a nice deal with this one.

So that was my IPSY bag, what did you get? Let me know in the comments if you have a video or blog about your bag. I love to see what everyone got each month.

Plan with Me – St. Patrick's Day

This week's theme was a no brainer at least for me. I love Saint Patrick's Day mostly for the corned beef that is a must for dinner. One of my favorite meals of the year.

Aside from that I do really love this week's spread, the colors are so pretty together. I am glad I chose to use the yellow to break up the green. The only thing is I wish I had used the yellow for the “to go” boxes and used the second green color for the today ones. Oh, well, it is still really pretty.

I am kind of mad at myself though because I made a special effort to print off a set of gold glitter boxes and then I didn't use any of them. I used the green glitter but totally forgot to use the gold ones. I need to watch that better next week with the colors I added to my boxes for that theme.

So here are the photos of the finished spread. Thanks for watching the video and checking out my blog.

Plan with Me- Lion King Theme

Watch the video here.

This week I decided to go with a Lion King theme, after the cats last week it just seemed the logical choice.

Here are some pics of the finished spread.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog and video.

Plan with Me- Cat Theme

Watch the video here.

For this week's plan with me I am using a cat theme. I fell in love with this set of clip art the second I saw it. Since there is quite a bit of green in the graphic set I felt it would be purr-fect for March.

Here are some closer shots of the pages, thanks for checking it out.
