Weekly Planner Spreads by Month: July 2019

July 30, 2019

Happy Planner Happy Tuesday everyone. I know what you’re thinking: “Back to back posts?!” Yup! I’m really trying to be on top of my blogging. (Especially since things have calmed down at work). So I’m back with another post today. And I have another post planned for tomorrow. (I’m on a roll! Who read that in Ashley O’s voice?!). As most of you already know, I LOVE launching new series here on the blog. So…

Introducing: Weekly Planner Spreads by Month! In this new monthly series, I’m going to be sharing my weekly planner spreads with you guys. Just a warning, I have whitened out the “personal” information. These posts are mainly to share how I decorative the planner (i.e. the washi tapes/stickers I use each week).

Here’s my weekly planner spreads for July:

Blind Box & Bag Roundup: Digimon Blind Bag Figural Keyrings

July 29, 2019

Digimon Blind Bag Figural KeyringsWhat’s this? What’s this? (If you didn’t read that in Jack Skellington’s voice you’re a LIAR). A new Blind Box & Bag Roundup?! Why yes, yes it is. Speaking of Jack Skellington, and yes I know this is off topic, can it be fall now? I’m so OVER summer (aka my least favorite season). I want pumpkins and witches and ghosts and Halloween. And then CHRISTMAS. I LOVE YOU CHRISTMAS! I miss you so much. 

Back to reality. Since I had some Box Lunch cash lying around about to expire, I decided to order some blind bags. To be honest, I haven’t really been into blind bags/blind boxes as much as I was back in 2013-2017 but I LOVE Digimon! (And I rarely see Digimon merch). So I decided to pick up two Digimon Blind Bag Figural Keyrings a few weeks ago.

Let’s see which Digimon Blind Bag Figural Keyrings I got:

Behind The Scenes of Blogging: What to Expect on Simply Sinova

July 24, 2019

Chicago Shake Shack Burgers Happy Wednesday! Long time no see…sorry, it’s been crazy at work this past week and a half! Instead of a “regular” post today, I thought it would be fun to share a little bit on the “Behind the Scenes” of blogging. (But then again, isn’t every blog post, a regular blog post….moving on). Or at least how I run my blog. So here’s the rundown: Each week I try to lay out a schedule of which posts I want to publish. Then, I set time aside to first edit the photos for the post.

I don’t know why, but I HAVE to have the photos edited and ready to go before I can even start drafting the post itself. Next, I jot down the main points I want discuss within the post. Then I write the post, edit it and revise any errors. The last thing I do before publishing is come up with the title for the post. Boom… simple as that, right?

Wrong!

Michaels Planner Haul: Sticker and Washi Tape 50% off Sale

July 10, 2019

Michaels Planner HaulI’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this on the blog before but if not, I’m a HUGE “Planner Girl.” Basically, I’m one of those people who loves using a planner to stay organized. Look, I get that there’s technology know that lets us keep notes in our phones, and Google Calendar and all that jazz. But I’m a pencil and paper kind of gal.

Not only do I love jotting down my daily schedule and all that, I also LOVE decorating my planner. I know bullet journaling is super “in” right now. But, I’ve been “planning” for about four years now and I just love it. (Sorry bullet journaling!). I just love decorating my weekly spreads with colorful washi tape and a TON of stickers.

I really want to start sharing more about my planner/planning here on the blog. So, I’ve decided to make this a new regular series on Simply Sinova! Woot woot!

I get the majority of my planner supplies from Michaels.

Brunch at White Dog Cafe in University City, Philadelphia

July 8, 2019

Brunch at White Dog Cafe in University City, PhiladelphiaHi everybody! (If you didn’t immediately think of Dr. Nick and/or The Simpsons…we can’t be friends anymore. Just kidding. But not really). In my 48 hours in Philadelphia post, I said I’d be sharing more about White Dog Cafe. As well as giving an overall review of the restaurant. Well… drum roll please…here it is!

I had wanted to visit White Dog Cafe ever since I saw it featured on Food Network years ago. I honestly don’t even remember what Food Network program I saw it on. But it always stuck with me. Maybe it’s because I’m a huge dog lover? Regardless, visiting White Dog Cafe had been on my bucket list for a while now. And it definitely lived up to the hype. 

I am in LOVE with White Dog Cafe!
