An Emily Ley Giveaway

I discovered Emily Ley's products in a random way. I was scrolling through instagram and came across a photo of some cute notepads that someone had taken and tagged Emily Ley in. So I clicked through and fell in love. 

She has created beautiful "type-A enthusiast" notepads, cards, binders, organizers, etc. I would never, ever describe myself as type-A, but I thought, "Maybe if I own an adorable Simplified Planner I will get organized??"

Well, it worked. It helped me completely organize my blog ads and giveaways. It got them off iCal, that also contained all my salon appointments, and into something that I can easily flip to and see. 

But other than being effective and helping me organize, it's pretty, clean, and has little details that give it  just the right touch.




The calendar pages are empty so you can fill in the month and dates yourself. I love this because you aren't locked into "starting" at a certain time of year--like January 2013.


I also got the weekly meal calendar since I've started meal planning by the week. It has been immensely helpful with my organization!


I got the pockets to go in the Simplified Planner to hold any extra papers, cards, or anything else blog related.




Are you a paper or computer calendar user? If you use paper, I know you'll love this already. If you use a computer, consider the rewarding feeling of marking through a task you completed!

Would you like to win a FULLY stocked planner - Binder (choice of color), Weekly Calendar Pages, Pocket Pages, Notes Pages, Dividers, Contact Pages + A-Z Dividers. A $114.00 value!

  7. Recently discovered you're blog and LOVE IT! You come across as a genuinely nice person and I look forward to following your posts. Love this planner, I am so a paper girl. I actually carry two small planners in my purse, one for my stuff, one for the kids...ridiculous I know, but I really do get that sense of satisfaction when I complete each task.

  12. I'm so glad you're sharing this Kate! I've been wanting one of these ever since you first blogged about Emily Ley. I would LOVE to win this!!! I was seriously drooling over this every set last night, and telling my husband how much I need one for my business (I was trying to give him a hint for Christmas, haha). It would keep me so organized, and it would be so lovely to have something tangible that I could carry to meetings with me. It will make me so efficient! I really really really hope I win!!!

  13. I am so excited about this giveaway - all of your giveaways are wonderful, but I've had my eye on a Simplified Planner ever since I was introduced to Emily Ley here on your blog. Its such a beautiful and simple design and I loved the fact that you can completely fill in the calendar yourself - I just plain need to get organized!
    Thank you Kate, I absolutely love your blog.

  24. I'm one of those girls that makes a to do list with items I have already done, just so I can cross them off my list. I LOVE lists and being organized!

  35. Sometimes the "old fashioned" way of doing things really is best.

    I used to be devoted to my Franklin planner and over the years have relied on my Outlook calendar/iPhone. I'm often tempted to return to paper for the simplicity and being able to see it all.

    This is pretty too!

  36. I am a HUGE fan of writing things down. I prefer a paper planner over my iCal any day. I'm starting nursing school in January, this would be perfect!

  38. So cute!! I'm a total paper lover!! And while I have a knack for all things mac, you're right, there's nothing that makes you feel more accomplished than crossing something off a handwritten to-do list. :) Great giveaway!

  44. I love sitting at the kitchen counter each morning, organizing my week.
