June Plan with Me

June is a great month! In LA, we feel the June gloom almost every year so it’s my last chance to basque in the cool weather before the summer hits. Summers are my least favorite because it’s hot.as.heyl. 
I’ve been dreaming about a relaxing getaway lately so I decided to make this month’s theme palms and palm trees. I have this beautiful picture from Hawaii when we went in 2013 where I captured the sunset with silhouettes of palm trees. It was such a memorable moment for me. The photo definitely doesn’t do it justice.
I was thinking of what else to add to the design so it wouldn’t be so monotone and so many Pinterest pins had birds on them. But if you know me then you know that isn’t an option lol! So we’ll stick with just the leaves. Plus, I think it goes well with one of my main goals for this month – be a Plant Lady. Please LAWD! Don’t let me kill my plants lol!
Hope you enjoy the layout! This design will be available for download in my Etsy shop beginning today! If you decide to create your own version of this layout be sure to tag me on Instagram or Twitter @JustKissa! Happy planning!

May Plan With Me

What?! It’s May!? Can’t believe 4 whole months of 2018 passed by just like that.

Thanks to the 30 Day Blogging Challenge I’ve been able to share some new things on the blog. I’ve already started a Entrepreneur Diaries Series and a Plan with Me Series but I’ve been wanting to make a regular video series out of it on my Youtube Channel for a long time now. 

The Word of the Month for May is “simple.” I really want to simplify my life. Take things out the are negative or unnecessary so that I can make room for positive things.

Hope you enjoy this type of media on here. If you do (or don’t) let me know in the comments!

Walk with me, Talk with me – Fitness Journals

I’m so excited to announce that I’m starting a new blog series called “Walk with me, Talk with me.” It’s going to be a place where I’m just going to be completely me, talking to my friends about whatever pops into my mind. It could be about business, feelings, fitness, food, struggle, triumph…Who knows! Sometimes I’ll write, sometimes we’ll do video…Who knows! 😛

This week I’m going to be talking about something that I’ve created that is near and dear to my heart – our Food and Fitness Journals. I am so passionate about this particular product. It is something that I use every single day and put my entire heart and soul into. Draft after draft, millimeter and millimeters of adjustments, test after test, I wanted it to be 3 main things: well designed, easy to use/customize, and functional.

With that being said, I’ve created a little walk through of my journals. Talk a peek  🙂
