You all have been crushing some major goals this year! We have loved hearing all the testimonials from you all: how you've paid off all your debt, graduated from college, landed your dream job, lost a job and persevered through the storm and found a new job, launched your blog or started a side hustle. These are just some to name a few. We must remember to celebrate all the wins, no matter how big or small. And if getting your family out the door on time for school with shoes on everyone's feet is a win, then celebrate it #nailedit! You all deserve a little pampering. It's time to "Treat Yo'self" to a little happy!
So what is your "happy" or go to "treat"? Well, we have quite a few, and we're going to share them with you in case you are in need of some inspiration. If that wasn't enough, we are going to give away 5 Treat Yo'self Gift Bags to 5 randomly selected people who pre-order a 2018 Planner... say what!?!
STARTplanner has partnered with some of our favorites to offer our amazing community a kick booty giveaway! We know you hustle every day and when you show us the love we give it right back. Take a look at some of the products that will be included in the giveaway bag. Oh, and there's no shame in going ahead and treating yo'self to some of these now...don't worry we won't tell; )
Treat yo'self AND treat your skin! It's a win win! And what better way to treat your skin than with a safe, 100% cruelty free sheet mask. Ladies and gents this is not your typical face mask. This is a sheet mask that soothes stressed skin and improves complexion. Check, and check! And not to worry, all of their products are formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, and Triclosan. And they are also dermatologist tested and are totally transparent about the ingredients in their products.
This one is near and dear to our heart. Kristy and Jenny had the privilege of working with Jennifer a couple years ago and we are so excited to share her beautiful jewelry with you all. Much of Jennifer's business is rooted in family history and it's what makes each piece of jewelry she touches that much more meaningful. Jennifer is also local to Cumming, GA and we are all about supporting other small businesses. Jennifer made custom bracelets for our Treat Yo'self bags to match the saying on our 2018 Hustle Weekly Planner, "Good Vibes Only".
When was the last time you sat down with a nice hot cup of tea and just relaxed? If it's been awhile, then you need to head over to Teami, pick up some of their tea, and scope out a little quiet corner of the house to unwind. And this isn't just some ordinary black tea you can pick up at your local grocer. This tea means serious business. And by business I mean, yes, your business...Poop! Okay, there, we said it! The Teami 30 Day Detox Tea will help you feel better from the inside out! Getting rid of the toxins that your body is holding onto will allow it to function properly, burn the correct amount of calories, and have natural energy levels every day! We can't emphasize enough how important it is to have a healthy gut. They also have tea to help you go to sleep, be more alert and productive, and lots more.
So we here in the south love ourselves some good 'ol lemonade, no matter what time of year it is. But how often can you find lemonade without all of the added sugar? Have you ever bought store brand lemonade and looked at the ingredients? Some don't even contain any lemon juice, wait... what? Yeah, it's true! But don't worry, you can say goodbye to corn syrup, sugar, and those other ingredients you can't pronounce, and say hello to True Citrus! Every now and then we like to treat ourselves to a nice glass of lemonade, and now, we don't have to feel guilty about it. All True Citrus products are made with ingredients that you can pronounce, with citrus juices and oils (which is what gives them their fresh-squeezed taste, have low calories, low sugar, and contain NO artificial sweeteners, flavors, preservatives, gluten or sodium. HOLLA!! And did I mention that they also have seasonings? "Honey, start the grill, we're having lemon pepper chicken tonight!"
Adult coloring books are all the rage these days. But some of them are so overwhelming! #crosseyed. We LOVE these beautiful and simple, hand illustrated cards from The Simple Palette. These cards are therapeutic to color and every planner girl loves to color & doodle, am I right? So treat yo'self to some coloring note cards and then bless someones day by sending them a handwritten note...did we just say "mail", as in put a stamp on it and place in the mailbox? Yup, we sure did. The gift of handwritten notes is dwindling away as cell phones are at our fingertips and text messages are sent without a second thought. Send your accountability partner an encouraging note to tell them you are thinking of them, and have a little fun in the process as you spice it up with some color! "Find your tribe. Love them hard."
Oh Tombow, how we love thee...let us count the ways...in pantone colors! If you haven't discovered Tombow yet, then you are in for a real treat! We were introduced to Tombow a few months back and let's just say, there is no going back. We now use Tombow pens and tape for ALL of our planner needs. Included in our bags is everything you need to get started. Our 2018 STARTplanners are calling our names and are excited about their Tombow makeover; )
Because everyone needs a fun mug to enjoy their coffee or tea in, right? And we are smitten over this mug from The Quotable Life. Oh shoot! We only have 4 mugs here... oh, wait a minute, we found the 5th mug, it was on Kristy's desk; ) We love that this is also a local company (Atlanta, GA) and they have mugs for just about every occasion and person you can think of! Not a coffee or tea drinker, well don't you worry, they have so many other great products including other drinkware, apparel, home decor, stationery and more. You are sure to find yourself a little happy, and probably do a lot of your holiday shopping as well.
We didn’t know we could get so excited over a hand towel until one of these gems showed up at our door! It’s soft, beautiful design has us swooning. They also come in bath towels and beach towels… and we’ve heard that blankets are in the works! Someone on our team may have already "treated" herself to some beach towels (ahem, Kara). The towels speak for themselves, but the message behind The Bali Market truly sold us..."BALI stands for Bestow Abundance Lend Inspiration. That means, each time you purchase one of our towels, we encourage you to donate an unused and unloved item from your home. Bestow Abundance. And when you live a life of giving and gratitude, it reflects positivity to those around you. Lend Inspiration." So if you haven't experienced the wonders of the Turkish towel, go check them out!
