I wrote about ErinCondren.com a short while ago and I’m oh-so-excited to share my order & review with you!!!
*UPDATE* The giveaway has ended. A BIG thanks to all entrants. I just may have to hold another one. 🙂 You can still save $10 on your first purchase here.
This post is going to be picture heavy…
Ready? Lets go.
What did I order? Well, I guess I should say what didn’t I order? *smiling*
The Life Planner, of course, in “favorite things”. Let’s take a closer look, shall we? I love how pretty it is, with all the colors and my favorite things listed… I’m a tad giddy. I’ll talk more about the LP further into the post. For now, lets continue with the haul. 🙂
An Island Fleur candle. It smells absolutely Ah-maze-ing!!!! I received one of the little samples of the body butter over the holidays and it’ll be in my cart next time I order from Erin Condren. Erin Condren nailed the scent with the following description…
Close your eyes and imagine you’ve escaped to an island paradise! This scent was created to capture memories of my honeymoon in Bora Bora. A blend of gardenia, tuberose and white florals perfectly balanced by ginger, spices & fresh greens take me back to white sand beaches, crystal clear waters & breezy blue skies!”
Island Fleur certainly reminds me of our time in Hawaii and Guam. The Island Fleur scent is available not only in the candle, shown above, but also body butter and body scrub. The glass the candle resides in is absolutely stunning. I know I’ll be buying several of these to make my house smell amazing and for beautiful glasses for cocktails. A few friends may also get them as gifts. 🙂
My new iPhone case!!! YIPPEEEE!!! I LOVE IT!!! It’s not only sturdy (yes, I’ve dropped it already), but it’s also in “favorite things” so it matches my LP and my other EC goodies… you’ll see more soon as you continue reading. I was a bit thrown at first when I got it. I’m used to cases that separate front to back not bottom to top, if that makes any sense. Do you see the seam? It’s right in the middle of the letter “e” in my name. It’s not a problem and it hasn’t come apart when it has been dropped, I just didn’t realize this is where it would come apart to put it on my phone.
Currently, EC makes iPhone cases for the following device models; iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, iPhone 3Gs, and iPhone 3.
I’m not sure if she’ll offer cases for other smart phones anytime soon, but I would be surprised if she doesn’t.
Colorful markers. I write with a pencil a ton because things change over and over again. I’m a bit of a pen and marker hoarder (shhh don’t tell anyone) so I couldn’t pass up on these. I’m glad I didn’t. They have a fine fiber point and flow really nicely. Another great thing, no bleeding through the pages. That’s a plus!! A set of these babies include the following colors; red, pink, orange, blue, green, & purple. They even come in a great sturdy laminated box.
I also ordered a set of elastic bands to keep my LP closed and a set of stickers for my iPad mini. Don’t know why but I didn’t take a picture of them by themselves. You can see them in the first photo above. I plan on ordering an address book so I’ll be able use another one of the bands I already have and still have an extra if one gets lost.
I will say, I was a bit disappointed with the iPad mini stickers. While they looked exactly as they should, they were smaller than the iPad mini and smart case. The pictures on EC show the stickers going clear to the edge of the device/case, but there is a good 1/4″ space between the edge of the sticker and the edge of the device itself. I won’t complain though because they did give me a bunch extra and I was able to put one on my Kindle case and it fit perfectly. like a glove.
Now onto the review of the Life Planner.
The cover and tabs are really nicely made. They’re laminated so they’ll be protected from anything wet, dirty, or sticky, like little two-year-old hands. I chose to have my name put on the cover with the year on the second line. I’ve seen a bunch people customize there’s with quotes or various sayings. It’s fun to put together, that’s for sure. The coil is made of heavy-duty aluminum so it won’t get bent out of shape which happened to my calendars ALL the time.
Onto the beauty inside. For a larger view of each picture, click on it.
I ordered two sheets of these stickers. One for the month view and one for the week view.
Overall, I’m very please with my order and the Life Planner. I’ve used it everyday since it’s arrival and it’s made me feel soooo much better knowing exactly what is planned day-to-day. I’m a bit OCD when it comes to planning so a big THANKS to Erin Condren. I LOVE YOU!!!!
