New Product Review – PurpleTrail Planners! (And a Discount for YOU!)

I. LOVE. PLANNERS.

There’s probably no one reading this who is really surprised by that statement! HA!

I really do love them! Over the years I’ve had a wide variety of planners…hardcover, softcover, no cover. I’ve used my phone, I’ve used my computer, I’ve used my email. I’ve even used a Palm Pilot! Remember those?!

New Product Review - PurpleTrail Planners! (And a Discount for YOU!) #purpletrail #planner #discountcode Click To Tweet

What I’ve learned over the years is that I personally do BEST if I’m actually using a physical planner – putting pen to paper. And I’ve used a few different ones: Erin Condren, Plum Paper, Day Designer, Martha Stewart…one I found at Walmart…) I’ve learned that I like to be able to customize that planner a bit, and that if it’s PRETTY, I use it more. (That sounds ridiculous, but it’s totally true.)

So when Tamese from PurpleTrail contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing one of their planners…UM, YES! Sign me up, please!

Tamese provided me with a lovely little code that allowed me to hit up the PurpleTrail website and design my own planner. How FUN is that!? I must admit, at first I was a tad bit overwhelmed – the options seem endless, and I wasn’t quite sure where to start! But I stopped and wrote a few priorities down, and the next thing I know I had designed this:

I decided to try one a tad bit smaller than I normally use, because I’ve been on a simplification kick these days, so I figured, hey, if I can do a smaller planner, that’s awesome! This one is 6X8, but they also offer a larger one at 8.5X11, and a cute little one that’s only 4X6! You can customize each of these for daily, monthly or weekly uses for moms, students, teachers, brides, or just good ol’ regular people! (We all need some good ol’ regular people in our lives, don’t we?)

The Perfect Night’s Sleep…with Perfect Linens!

**PLEASE NOTE: While Perfect Linens DID provide me with this product to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

I don’t have too many “favorite” brands in use around our home. I like a variety of decor pieces, appliances and furnishings – you’ll find a little bit of everything if you come over! But there ARE several things that are crazy important to me when it comes to our house. And one of those items would be: SHEETS.

I’m big on sheets, y’all. I never thought I would be a person who cares about thread counts and deep pockets and oversized flat sheets, but I totally am. I look at it like this: my hubby and I both work some pretty high-stress jobs. Sleep is incredibly important to us! And the more comfortable we are, the better we sleep. And the better we sleep, the better we can handle what’s needed of us on a daily basis. So…sheets. Sheets are important!

I was actually on the hunt for a new set of sheets for our bed a few weeks ago when I got an email from the lovely Catherine from Perfect Linens.

The company name grabbed my attention instantly, because I felt like that was exactly what I was on the hunt for: the perfect linens! Turns out they have the right to be called that, too. The folks at Perfect Linens are literally sheet experts! Their website specializes in sheets ONLY (no other products) and they have more than 30 years of experience selling sheets to some of the biggest retailers out there! 

So, you get to be a sheet expert by selling a lot of sheets, eh? Well, not exactly. Perfect Linens actually TESTS for the best sheets using instruments and fabric analysis, such as companies like Nike and NASA would. No joke! Check out their laboratory!
