It’s that time of year! School will be starting soon (I know, too soon!) and with that moms and students everywhere will be challenged to keep their new schedules, events and activities organized. Keeping a calendar is an essential part in helping manage your daily activities and prioritize your time. It’s also a great way to kick off a new school year and even start 2016 off on the right foot. Did you know that you can reduce stress by simply logging appointments, events and assignments in a daily planner? When kept up-to-date, a planner allows you to find information quickly, prioritize effectively and schedule appointments on the spot.

As you may know from year’s past, I’m a bit old school and prefer writing down appointments, events and day-to-day tasks in a traditional daily planner. With so many stylish designs in a variety of price points, it was tough to narrow down my favorites! If I’ve missed any you love, please comment and let me know.

Summer. It’s heat leads us poolside to cool off, visit with friends and just plain relax. Before heading to the pool, you’ll have to bring a few essentials. My kids have been keeping their eye out for fun floats and have this swan on the top of their list. I too have spotted a few poolside picks that I’m sharing today.

Designer Crush :: Megan Tagliaferri

Known for her glitzy hotel and casino interiors in Vegas, Megan Tagliaferri of FLO Design Studio describes her own personal aesthetic as “California mod spiritual.” In her Belmont Shores of Long Beach home, she blends a mix of earthy, yet glamorous boho style. Tagliaferri brilliantly layers rich patterns throughout using designer wallcoverings, Moroccan textiles and vintage furnishings. Although high glam, the rooms are cozy, inviting and laid-back. It’s the perfect interior for the relaxed SoCal waterfront lifestyle Tagliaferri and her family were seeking. Take a peek!
