Status Update

Hi y’all! I’m sorry I haven’t been posting as much lately- it’s exam week and I’ve been studying my butt off trying to get through the last steps of my classes! It’ll all be over tomorrow, though, so fear not! I have my last and hardest exam (accounting, ugh) at 2:00, so please send me good vibes! I’ll be back regularly soon since my summer break is mere hours away and I’ll have plenty of time to devote to the blog.

Love, Emily

-70 degrees and breezy
-Magazines, any and all
-Nail polish
-Edisto, SC
-My fam

Things I Say Often
-Oh my God, no but really
-You’re JOKING
-Sooo how was your day?
-This is the most exciting thing that’s ever happened in my life ever!

Things that attract me to my best friends
– They are stupid

– They tell me I’m pretty even when I look rough
– They tolerate my driving
– They (mostly) have southern accents
– They all have proper grammar
– They tell me the truth
– They make me laugh harder than I usually do…which often makes crying ensue

Things I want to do before I die
– Go scuba diving with whale sharks!
– Live in Paris for an extended period
– Decorate my whole house exactly the way I want it to be
– Get married and have SUPER cute babies
– Keg stand…you think I’m joking
– Adopt a billion puppies

Perfect Planners

Since I’m in college I practically live out of my planner. I used to be super unorganized and I definitely paid for it when my life was in shambles. Since regularly writing down homework, appointments, and meetings, I’ve gotten much better at time management and decision making. I’ve generally stuck to my beloved Lilly Pulitzer daily planner, but there are plenty of good ones out there!

I generally think monthly calendars, a notes section, a section for important dates, a place for addresses and phone numbers,  along with spaces for daily planning, make a good planner. Here are a few that not only have quality inside space, but also look great on the outside!
