A Dreams and Goals Journal

I've noticed lately that my brain is full of fun dreams and goals and I've been scratching them into my planner. Then I realised that if these are my biggest dreams and ambitions, they need a pretty home, and to be valued. So the Dreams and Goals Journal idea was born. I grabbed a pretty TN and stickers from my favourite collection, both from Carpe Diem Planners, and got to work. 


I also added an insert for the books I'll read in 2019, I find I tend to fly right to the next non-fiction book never taking the time to process what I've learned. I'm reducing my reading goal to only one non-fiction a month and only going on to the next one once I've processed it fully in this book.

All of the products used in the video below are on sale right now at Carpe Diem Planner's brand new and totally gorgeous website. Use the code CARA20 for 20% off the entire site at this link:

A Stress Free Christmas Starts Now!

Did I just stress you out with my title?

Not my intention at all.

I'd love for you to start planning your Christmas now, so that when the season arrives, you will be able to sit back with a cup of eggnog and enjoy it all. 

Imagine your most perfect Christmas, wouldn't that be lovely? It's actually possible! Well, maybe not all of it if your perfect Christmas includes Jude Law showing up at your door in the middle of the night. But, you can still watch that happen to Cameron Diaz in the Holiday, which is my all-time favourite holiday movie. Or in a pinch, go see him as Yumbledore in The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Sorry for the random Jude tangent, back to planning... ;)


Christmas doesn't have to be stressful, it can be as fun for us as it is for the children. Grab that cup of eggnog or a PSL and hit play and I'll tell you how.


Then, grab your planner and come have a peek inside my Christmas planner to see how I'm keeping organised this year.
