MASSIVE Planner Sticker Haul from Glam Planner on Etsy

March 25, 2019

Disclaimer: Post is NOT sponsored. All opinions are my own, and photos were taken by me.

ve some sort of idea of what I need to get done.

I currently have an Erin Condren Life Planner, and this is my third year having this style of planner. I have the vertical layout, and I think it is perfect for people who like to make lists to check off throughout the day.

My favorite thing to do every once in a while is to use planner stickers to give a little bit of life to my planner for a week or so. Below are some kits I have used in the past…

Let’s get to the haul!

For those of you who don’t know, Elle Fowler has been a YouTuber for over ten years now, and she took a little bit of a break the last few years in order to focus on her sticker shop: Glam Planner. She is currently in the process of moving from L.A to Nashville, and her sticker shop is moving to there too. So, she had a massive sale to get rid of the planner stickers she had left in stock in L.A, and of course I had to get my hands on a few kits. Well, it’s a little more than a few…

I bought twenty kits in this sale that Elle had, and I am so happy with all of the kits I purchased. I wanted to buy a variety to be able to use throughout this year, and I feel like I have some perfect ones for Spring, Fall, and Autumn. There is one kit that I could use for Winter. I do have some leftover sticker kits that I have previously purchased that I could use in Winter as well, and I think I’m mostly set for the year.

If you want to get your own stickers…

If you are interested in getting in the planner sticker world, I definitely recommend Elle’s stickers, because they are great quality and not that expensive. There are some sticker kits that are expensive, but the quality is lacking. I think she picked out the great combination of printer and sticker paper to make these stickers look so good.

Let me know which of these kits is your favorite. I did already use one of these kits last week since Spring started, and if you want to check out that layout, go to my instagram: @annamaxwell018

|12/12/18| I Graduated From College

December 12, 2018

I FINALLY DID IT! I officially graduated from college! The past week I have spent non-stop studying for final exams, and I have been stressed out to the max. I took those exams on Monday, and I still did not feel much better after taking them. Out of all my classes this semester, there was one class I was worried about, and the final exam didn’t ease my worries that much. 

The Ceremony

I had my graduation ceremony yesterday(Tuesday the 11th), and it was actually a nice ceremony. We luckily got to have it inside, because I couldn’t imagine having an outdoor ceremony with all the cold weather we are having. We actually had to delay the ceremony by an hour because we had ice on the roads yesterday morning. All that meant for me is that I got to sleep in an extra hour than I planned. Here are some pictures from yesterday…

These photos were taken by my amazing aunt Kay, and I really appreciate that she was able to be there along with my family. 

Why was I so stressed?

It is actually pretty simple. My university doesn’t require our final grades to be put out until this Friday, and I had no idea really if I should even be graduating. It was kind of hard to enjoy everything fully. Yes, I still had fun, but there was that nagging feeling in my head that kept reminding me I wasn’t fully graduated yet.

However, yesterday evening turned that all around…

My family went bowling with my Dad’s coworkers for their Christmas party, and it was on our way home from there that the one class I was worried about posted the grades, and I found out that I indeed passed the class. So, I was able to finally breathe, and know that I did indeed graduate and will be receiving my degree that I have been working for the past few years.

I know that I haven’t posted on the blog the last two weeks, and I have been meaning too. Especially my big Black Friday haul, but I have been so focused on graduating that I didn’t get the chance. I will be posting the complete Black Friday Haul still, as I did finally receive all the packages I ordered online. The last one actually showed up on Monday so it took a long time for that one.

Other than my blog, I regularly post on Instagram. Be sure to give me a follow @annamaxwell018 or @LittlebitPatchCo for updates on my daily life.

Pink Lily Boutique Haul – Fall 2018 (part 3)

November 17, 2018

This post is NOT sponsored by Pink Lily. This is my own opinion about my personal online shopping experience here. 

If you haven’t already noticed, I am in LOVE with the Pink Lily Boutique. This is my fourth time making a purchase from them, but the third time was just for a mystery bag so it wasn’t a full haul. Check out my first two hauls here: part 1 | part 2

This purchase was mainly for Fall or Winter items, but a couple could probably go for Springtime as well. I think I’m winding down with my Pink Lily purchases for the year. The last one I plan on making is going to be for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, but never say never. They could have an amazing sale, and I might change my mind. However, I plan to hopefully be done with most of my shopping for the year after Black Friday/Cyber Monday.

My Order

I love everything I bought. The material is so soft on everything and perfect for Fall and Winter. When I ordered these I got a 30% discount, and that was probably the only way I bought that last sweater. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it is so beautiful, and really cozy. However, it’s original price was $55, and I was not down to pay that much for a sweater. No matter how cute and cozy it is. I think I mentioned this in my first Pink Lily haul, and it is very important to try to buy on sale days if you aren’t able to spend that much money. I recommend waiting for sales that are 25% or more, because usually, the highest sales are 25 to 30%. 

I really enjoyed my purchases, and I can’t wait to check out their Black Friday sale. If you’re planning on making some purchases yourself, make sure to check out their Instagram for Black Friday sale news.

|11/9/18| Is It Too Early To Decorate For Christmas?

November 9, 2018

Is it too early to decorate for Christmas? This is a question that spirals around usually after Halloween every year, and it is one that I just don’t get. Why is everyone so obsessed with controlling Christmas decorations? If it’s November 1st and I want to put up Christmas lights, why does it bother you so much? If I put them up in April would it bother you then too? What if I left Christmas decorations up year round?

My Big Question

I think my big question is: Why do people put so much effort into hating other people for decorating early for Christmas? How does it affect you if I put Christmas decorations up in my house early? It’s not like I’m going around and demanding everyone go and start decorating for Christmas early too. It’s just what I’m doing. Honestly, people need to take a chill pill, and worry about themselves. If they don’t want to decorate until November 30th or December 1st, that’s fine. If people don’t want to decorate at all, that is fine.

My point is that Christmas is a time of year for people to come together with their families. Not everyone looks at Christmas religiously, and purely just on the fact that it is a time of year they can spend with the family they might not always get to see. Some people might start decorating early because they are excited to feel the spirit of the holiday. To feel the happiness that Christmas or being around family gives them.

Did I Decorate Already?

No, I didn’t. I have some cute Fall decorations I like to use, and I want to enjoy them for a few weeks before putting up my Christmas decorations. However, I am fully supportive of people who have already put up their Christmas decorations. Because for some people Christmas might be the one time of year that brings them true happiness and joy. It’s also really none of my damn business if they decide to decorate early or not too. Just throwing that out there 🙂

What about you?

Did you decorate for Christmas already? On another note, who is getting ready for Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday? I’m already super excited, and planning out my shopping for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Planner Sticker Haul – August 2018

August 14, 2018

I think it’s time to do my first planner sticker haul for this blog. I haven’t really talked about this too much on this blog, but I love to plan. My planner is my life, and I use it every day. I bought my first Erin Condren planner last year, and my second one this year. I absolutely love the planner’s layout, and it’s a perfect style for me to make lists.

I started getting into planner stickers in the middle of last year, and I realized very quickly that I was addicted to buying the pretty stickers to go into my planner. The one thing that I didn’t count on was how pricey some of the planner stickers can be. With that in mind, I slowed down on buying planner stickers and chose my purchases from then on wisely. 

Planner Sticker Haul

My purchases this time are for 1 week in September, October, November, and December. I purchased from a shop on etsy.com called The Glam Planner. This particular shop isn’t always open, as it kind of just depends on if the shop owner is on vacation or if they have too many orders. But if you like planner stickers, I definitely recommend going to check out this shop. 

Festival Stickers – September 2018

This particular kit was initially for Coachella, but I like the layout and look of the whole kit and decided to get it for my September kit. It’s kind of like saying get all the Summer fun in while you can because it’s about to be Fall and cold weather is coming.

Halloween Kit – October 2018

I really liked the bright colors on this kit, and thought it was perfect for Halloween. Unlike the usually full kits, I got this kit as an essentials kit. So there will be some white space on my spread for the week of Halloween, but I think there is so much going on in these full boxes it won’t matter.

Harry Potter Hogwarts – November 2018

I really am excited about this kit. Instead of getting a traditional Thanksgiving or Black Friday themed kit, I chose Harry Potter for November. I don’t know why, but it seemed to fit in with the whole fall theme. 

Furbaby Christmas – December 2018

This is another kit that isn’t a full covered spread, and only has the essentials. I loved the animals in this kit and thought the whole Christmas theme wasn’t overdone. I’m super excited to end the year with this kit.

Those are the four kits I purchased for the next four months. I do plan on buying more, probably around Black Friday/Cyber Monday, but for right now these four kits are on my to-do list. Well, my planner to-do list. I have plans to put the spread in for September around the middle of the month, but that could change. I do plan on posting a new blog post with my finished spread whenever I do get it done.

Are you into planner stickers? What are your favorite shops on Etsy? And, if you own your own Etsy shop, let me know, so I can check out your products. Check me out on Instagram, where you might see a sneak peek of my planner spreads.
