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!

    A lol of people say I am too organized! I say, ” You can never be too organized!” I just started following your blog and already I love it!!!!

    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.

    Thanks for sharing this awesome find! With baby #3 making her arrival any minute, trying to start my own business, and a whole family to schedule, this would come in VERY handy!!!

    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!!!

    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.

    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! After having my first baby 2 months ago, I have let it slide a little and now being back and work and trying to get back into the grove of things, this would be perfect for me!! I hope I win :)

    I am so sad!!!! I don’t have Facebook or Pinterest active right now so there’s no way to enter! No twitter option? Or just email option? And today’s my birthday (the big 2-9!). I LOVE stationary and this is a great giveaway!

    Even though I try to put things on my calender/ical on my phone and computer I still love having a planner. sometimes its just eaier to flip through a calender vs scroll from page to page on my phone searching for something…. This one is fantastic!

  11. says

    Love Emily’s products. I ordered a Grace Perfection print from her a while ago and I’m in love with all her other stuff too. She’s got a great message goin on her blog as well.

  12. says

    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!

  13. says

    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!

  14. says

    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!

    I love this! When you said “If you use paper [calendars], I know you’ll love this already”, I thought you said “If you love paper you’ll love this” and I DO love paper! And planners! :)
    Thanks so much, Kate, for hosting this giveaway, and thanks as always not only for your wonderful tutorials but for your witness for Christ. It’s a big encouragement!! And you’ve inspired me to do something different with my hair! :)

    I love sitting at the kitchen counter each morning, organizing my week. I figure out my appointments, routing my errands in a logical way, and I plan what each day using my list of weekly chores, calls to make, and other tasks. This planner is something I’d truly use — thanks for the chance to win!
