 Eye glasses are a part of my life. Since, I think, grade 8 I’ve been wearing them. The variety of frame styles over the years have been dramatic. A particular pair of big, pink, plastic with the ear pieces off centered to the bottom stand out in my mind as crazy looking. Oh the 80’s how we miss you. Ha!

Contact lenses are not an option for me for some reason so glasses are my thing. Thankfully, eyewear and my taste have improved greatly.

That is why I have partnered with a really fun eyewear company Warby Parker. What is the best thing about them? You can try the frames on, at home, and let your friends and family help you decide if those big pink frames really do look sexy or not.

Warby Parker has much nicer frames than my old pink uglies and they even have a new collection.

Think handsome circles and common centers and say hello to the new Concentric Collection from Warby Parker. This unique collection showcases an interior ring of color around the lens, in hues inspired by the warmth of the season. There are three new styles and even one brand new color – Whistler Grey!

Warby Parker Concentric Collection

  • Three new styles – Benchley, Murphy and Everly
  • One new color – Whistler Grey
  • Interior ring comes in Vulcanite, Hazelnut, Flint and Fjord Blue
  • Anti-scratch and anti-reflective coating included
  • Prices start at $145

Are stumped for a gift for that person who has everything? How about a gift card? Thoughtful? Yes.

Warby Parker Gift Cards are the perfect holiday gift. Good things come in small packages.

This year for every gift card purchased, Warby Parker will include a copy of their newest book hot off their own press – Good Luck Omens for the Modern Era.   Oh yeah, a gift within a gift. Love it!

I know eyewear isn’t the most fun topic but since it’s such a big part of my life I’m really happy to work with this company. I hope that you can find a new pair for yourself, some that you won’t regret like my old pinkies.

Let me know what you think. Your comments are always the best part of writing this.

Be Beautiful!

Good day all you wonderful people. I do hope that your week has been great and no one was trampled by any reindeer or over zealous mall walkers.

Last week our FREE download was a naughty and nice holiday gift list. Which could possibly lead one to think that Santa time is my favorite time of year.

Not true. Actually, I have two favorite times of year- The New Year and September (the new school year).

Folks may be able to understand the New Year as being a favorite time but why on earth September? The answer is: school supplies. Most any store you enter at that time of year is bursting with pens, pencils, binders, folders and the air all around them is fragrant with fresh paper scent. Ahhhh.

As for the New Year, that is what brings us here. After filling out that Naughty and Nice list your wallet might be aching with loneliness. Is it? I know mine is. If I dare to check I might see some melted plastic in there from over used credit cards.That is why I love the New Year, it’s like turning a page in a brand new book. All the colors are in our hands and we can paint this new year any way we like.
Unfortunately, all those colors tend to cost money so that is why I am challenging myself and anyone else who cares to join me , to a No Splurge Month. Not a no spend, because we have to spend. But no splurge to try and differentiate between WANT and NEED.

No Splurge Page
This photo shows the page in my personal size pink Finsbury. It didn’t fit properly so I will be tweaking it when I try and print one again.

Here it is in A5 size, but you can also print it as US letter. For me, I will reduce the size for personal and try it again.No Splurge picture

Here is the .pdf if you would like to give it a try.

Now, what I did, was I cut it and punched it and THEN laminated it. That way, I can use it more than once by using a dry erase or erasable pen. Smart huh? I can make one for you too. Hop over to http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrintablePassion in a couple days and I will have them for sale. I just want to take some time making sure they fit perfectly in Personal and A5. I may even get really adventurous and make pocket size! Woo Hoo! Alert the media.

Here are a few more pix.

I want this insert to be a smaller size than the actual A5 page so that it will call my attention to it immediately and often. That alone may help me when I’m in line at the fancy coffee place. Know what I mean? So if, in the photo you’re saying “Hey, that’s too small.” That’s because I want it that way.

What do you consider to be a “Splurge”? Me, it’s mani-pedis. Oh and of course all stationery and scrap booking stuff.
Let’s share in the comments below what we are going to try and not splurge on for 2015.
Your comments make my day, so please share.

Be Beautiful!

I suspect that all of us here in the planner-nerd world are list makers. Even with all those gorgeous leather Filofax and other ring binders around me I still make lists on random paper.
Holiday time though, now that calls for some special list making.

To be festive, I took a Moleskine Cahier notebook, in red and made a Christmas journal. I like the Moleskines with the graph paper. For whatever reason I enjoy writing on that. It’s very easy, I find, to bullet journal.

 

Cover of Red Moleskine Cahier  decorated for Xmas

Terrible, unartistic cover. Was it my paint pen failure or user error.

Within this journal I’ve made a list of folks I need to buy for. It’s doubled since the boys were little as there’s wives and girlfriends to gift plus my two awesome bonus daughters. This first page lists the December birthdays we have to celebrate as well.

Inside the red moleskine.

Xmas gift list along with Dec. birthdays.

Next, I created one page for each person and listed gift ideas in one color and when I buy the gift I place a check mark in another color. Whew. Hey it’s only rock and roll but I like it. Oops sorry, I mean that’s my system but if you want something simpler or something to use in your Filo I’ve created an A5 sized gift list planning sheet for all of you.

 

Holiday naughty and nice list in red and green A5 size

Freshly printed.

You can place the naughty and nice names on one side and and list their gifts down the other.
Now, as I was working on this I noticed that when you print if you size it down to around 85% it makes it personal size. Hey, it’s free, give it a try.
What I do to print it A5 is tell my printer US letter, layout is landscape and size it to 95%. This way, I find, makes it easier to print two sided. Doing it this way leaves the image in the center of the page making your next step cutting it down to A5 size. That is where my Fiskars paper trimer (Thanks Michaels Arts & Crafts) comes in handy.

Holes need to be punched and for that I use the Rapesco six hole punch.

Green and red naughty and nice list with the Rapesco hole punchMy happy little Kipling monkey, Mickey looks on in happily from my Kipling pen case.

There are other methods to print and punch these and there are lots of videos and blogs describing them, so if you prefer some other then please go for it. I’m not saying system is perfect.
