Most of y’all know, my planner is “bae”. I hold this baby near and dear to my heart, it saves me on crazy weeks of school, on first dates so I can remember to shave in advance, and it also gives me an excuse to relax at least once a week.
I’ll be showing you today how I go in and decorate my planner each week.
Before we get started, let me tell you which planner I’m using today.
I’m using The Happy Planner by Me & My Big Ideas
I love this due to the layout, but we can totally get into that in a whole different post.
Here you can see I have tiny page flags that have important dates on them, I use them to plan in advance but still have the flexibility to decorate.
These are the main tools I’ll be using today.
I got the sticker kit by A Heart Felt Life
I also bought the paper, washi tape, and glue dot roller at michaels.
The scissors are from target dollar spot.
Finally getting to the decorating.
The first thing I do is cover up the dates. I like writing in my own days just so it can go with my theme that week.
here I cut the paper to size and glued it down.
After gluing the paper down I went in with A Heart Felt Life’s Peppermint Bubble Stitched stickers and added one on top of each day. This is to include the dates on top.
After that I took my thin washi tape and used it to cover up “morning, afternoon, evening” headers because I split my boxes up a little different.
I separate them into “school, life, blog”.
I went in and wrote the dates on each bubble sitcker.
When I’m decorating my planner I like to use my Sharpie pen in Black because it’s bold and it makes it look clean.
The next set of stickers are from LillyTop
I use these all the time to remind me to study, homework that is due, exams, and basically any other school related stuff.
At this moment I still haven’t written in my to dos. I do this because I like to continuously add stickers as I go, so I leave the writing until the end when I have found every sticker applicable for any occasion.
What I ended up doing was adding any full box stickers, my “weekend” sticker, my “plan” sticker, and my check box stickers.
*The stickers I mentioned came with the first sticker set I spoke about in the beginning of the post.
Now I’m taking stickers, again, from LillyTop and adding them to my planner. These stickers are stickers I use on a weekly basis because I meal prep and weigh myself weekly.
Now I get to write in the planner!
Once the stickers are all in place I go in and write in what I had on my page flags, as well as writing in my weekly to do’s.
For example: I wrote in zumba and lift because I do this every week, as well as my club meetings.
I also like to add quotes on the upper left corner of the week just to add a dash of motivation throughout the week.
*Also totally forgot to get detailed pics of the second washi.
I just used this to border the bottom of the page.
AND WE’RE DONE!
This was a very simple week. Some weeks will have more decoration but for the most part my routine never changes.

Have fun planning loves!
