Wednesday, November 30, 2011 Review & GIVEAWAY!!!!

Anyone that knows me knows that I am, to put it mildly, severely overly and psychotically organized.

I loves me some Container Store.

I am also one of those people who's brain does not work very well all the time so I've learned to write things down. Pretty much everything down. Like everything.

I have written down what I am writing down right now. Scary.

So it goes without saying that I love stationary. The prettier the better. So when I came across the magnificent site I just about fell off my chair.


And then this came in the mail....

Even the frickin shipping box is super cute!!
This bad boy is the 2011-2012 Life Planner...and that's exactly what it does...plan you life. In a super cute and chic way, of course.

Fancy ya'll

Even their site is the cutest ever with it's little chimes and colors. But the beauty of their stuff is that it is all totally customizable on top of being super useful. It's the paper equivalent to the holy grail of purses. (By this I mean the bag that is super cute and awesome looking, not too big but big enough to fit all that baby crap you have to lug around, is cleanable with a baby wipe and somehow makes you look slimmer. You know what I mean right? And if you happen to have this bag, please email me immediately. Like now.)

I just love having a place for everything and everything in it's place. Don't you?

I obviously need a vacation...

On top of having the worlds best organizers and planners this site has basically everything else. From iPad/iPhone cases to calling cards and address labels to invitations. I'm warning you, you will want to buy everything.

BUT WAIT!! There's more!!
