It has been a busy and stressful week for more reasons than one. At times like this, it’s hard to stay positive, but it’s the best thing we can all do. I hope you all practice kindness and love in your everyday lives.
Here are some links I’ve bookmarked/tweeted/pinned this week:

Week 46 in my planners:
My A5 planner has been quickly becoming my “main planner.” I love the designs of the Inkwell Press A5 Inserts and the horizontal Flex layout has been working out really well for how I plan out my days. I separate both halves of the week into two sections (which is incredibly easy thanks to this little trick) and use the left column as “Today” which has my appointments and schedule and the right side as my “To Do” section. I used the three boxes at the end of each day to mark my blog and YouTube postings (lightbulb), my workouts (heart) and meals (fork and knife). All stamps that I used this week are from Studio Calico planner kits. I am also absolutely obsessed with the floral Paper Source washi that I received from a friend! After a thorough hunt, I finally got full rolls of my own (thanks Yexenia!). This layout in my A5 is almost planner peace, but we’ll see if it still continues to work!
In my Erin Condren Life Planner (use this link to get $10 off your first order!) this week, I went for rich fall colors based on stickers from Willowfields (use the code THERACHMARK10 for 10% off your order), MerritElizabethShop (use the code THERACHMARK10 for 10% off your order) and StickWithMeShop to name a few (for other shops, check out the tags on my Instagram photo of this week). I’ve been using this planner as a creative outlet of sorts and really enjoy getting to throw a bunch of stickers all over the place! It also acts as a memory keeper where I can recount what I did each day.
Happy Monday and happy-week-before-Thanksgiving!
