Happy Monday friends!!! Hope you all had a lovely long weekend! This past week seemed like it was never ending!! From an ice storm and negative temperatures on Monday to a balmy tropical 65 degrees in Philly on Friday. What the WHAT is up with the weather??? In other news, B and I had a jam packed weekend of blogging, fun, and house updates! Today, we did our electrical walkthrough at the new home. I never thought I’d be so damn excited to talk about a bunch of wires and drywall…..but I loved it!! I was literally screaming with delight at all of the electrical outlets that we have in each room! If y’all have ever decorated any space, you know this is clutch!!! Having outlets everywhere makes it SO.MUCH.EASIER to setup the room bc you don’t have to worry about where to plug your stuff in!! Yipeeeeeee!!!
In other news…When B and I started planning the editorial content for 2018, he brought up the fact that I haven’t really done any organizing posts yet, which really is quite weird for me, since my friends and family lovingly call me Monica Geller. Yes, yes, I really LOVE cleaning and organizing just as much as Monica Geller!! So, essentially B was right….I really should be talking about how I organize more!! My first crack at the ole’ organizing category is how I get myself organized and ready for the new year ahead. In my humble opinion, I feel like if you spend a little money and get yourself some fun, cute, organizational accessories, you’ll be more likely to use them! I know, I ALWAYS feel better when I am looking at a neat, streamlined desk!! So, without further adieu, here are my favorite accessories to get your 2018 in order!!! Looking at organizing accessories makes me want to #buyallthethings~~I wish I could have them all!! Scroll down and click the links in the widgets to shop and get your s**t organized for 2018!! It’s time to channel your inner Monica y’all!

Who doesn’t love a good planner??? It’s so hard for me to choose my planner each year, bc I just love them ALL!! I love to choose a planner that “speaks to me”. What I mean by that, is I like to choose a cover etc. that fits my vision for what I see in the year ahead. Maybe, I see a tropical vacay in 2018….so I might pick a planner with palm leaves on it!! Whatever floats your boat!! Here are a few of my favorites!!
Notebooks and Calendars
So many choices…so little time!!! I keep a notebook with me AT ALL TIMES! You never know when a moment of creativity or inspiration might hit ya!! I even go as far to keep a notebook next on my nightstand. Some of my best ideas come to me when I wake up or right before I am about to fall asleep!
You can never have too many cute desk accessories!! I LOVE making my desk look beautiful and inviting!! That makes it sooo much easier for me to actually want to get my work done and be productive! I love all the fun palm print and gold accessories to choose from!!
