What's In My Shopping Cart + Life Update

Hey y'all! I honestly feel like it has been AGES since I have done a full blog post, so I am going to give ya a little life update.
I have had a lot going on these past few months in my personal and work life. For those that don't follow me on Instagram, I was prepping and audition for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, which takes up a lot of time, but is totally worth it! The process is extremely challenging and teaches you a lot about yourself and who you are. The audition is truly all about the process, not the end result. I made it to finals and could not be more thankful to have made it as far as I did. Now I am just taking time to wind down and figure out the what is next for my life 😊 I have also officially moved back in with my parents to save money and  I could not be happier. I feel like I live my best life when I am back home. So get ready to see a lot more of them on my blog and Instagram LOL 

Now--- on to the goodies-- what is in my shopping cart!!! 
Let's be real 90% of what I buy are shoes and colorful items, so I am sure you will not find any of the items I share as a surprise. Girls gotta have cute shoes, am i right?!

Organization 101: How I Organize My Planner

One of the most requested type of posts I get from y'all is all about my organization tips, so today on the blog I am sharing how I organize my planner. I am a true believer that if you have a plan written out for your week with tasks, events, errands, etc. that your week will go by much smoother! 

For starters, you have to have the right ---and cute--- equipment to build an organized planner that you are going to enjoy following. I absolutely swear by this planner from Erin Condren. The set up of the weekly pages and the stylish design actually keep me wanting to use my planner! I specifically really love this style and this one

I am a very visual person so using lots of visually pleasing aesthetics like stickers is a must for me. Michael's is my happy place and I specifically love this sticker set and this one. They have lots of different themes to choose from but those brands are the best ones in my opinion as far as quality and planner type stickers go. I could sit for hours decorating with all my sticker books LOL. 

This may also seem a little silly, but you definitely need the right kind of writing utensil. Marker pens definitely work the best as they write with a fine line but are permanent and don't bleed through the page. I personally love these and these

As far as planning goes, I make sure to keep what I write precise and to the point. It makes it much easier to see what my tasks/to-dos for the day are and I can just check everything off once I am done! For example, for my work I teach classes throughout the day. So instead of writing '11 am-930 pm: teaching', I write the specific times that I teach, so I can see visually where I have breaks in between to complete other tasks. This actually helps me stay organized with other to-dos with blogging and errands so I can be more efficient with my time. 

I also have stickers that look like little check lists. In my planner, I will put these in the margin on the left hand side and write down all my goals for the week. Whether it be to get x amount of blog posts written or to make sure I am drinking six glasses of water a day. I even put little reminders there like no fast food, because I need it haha. So whatever your personal goals are for the week/month, write them down in the extra room of your planner so you are seeing that written down reminder. Writing down your goals and visually seeing them every day are actually proven to be extremely helpful in achieving goals! 

Decorating is the best part for me! It is like my own personal therapy session LOL. I decorate week by week and try to complete every upcoming week on the Sunday prior (key word try LOL). As long as my week ahead is organized and ready to go it makes the week go by much smoother and I tend to be much more productive.  

Overall, the main thing to remember when organizing your planner---whether it be a personal journal or on a calendar--- is to remember what is best for you. For me, I like it to look visually pleasing so decorating my planner helps me a lot. For others, it may be having your entire month written out in advance. As long as you stay on top of having an organized planner and checking back in with it every day, you will become much more organized and prepared for every day!

Tanger Outlets Fort Worth Review

We all know I absolutely LOVE shopping and especially when it involves an amazing deal, so today on With Love, Nikki I am going to be sharing all about my experience at Tanger Outlets in Fort Worth! 

For starters, I do not think I have ever been to an outlet mall that was so nice and clean. That may sound extremely silly, but that is a very important part of shopping! No one wants to shop where it isn't organized and clean right!?! Or maybe that is just my OCD kicking in LOL. 

Any who, what I loved so much about Tanger Outlets in Fort Worth was the amount of diversity and options it had for everyone. I brought Jon with me to this event and he was able to do just as much shopping as I was, which is great!! Typically, outlet malls can be a little gender favored towards male or female, so I loved that they had options such as Brooks Brothers, Nike, and more for him to shop at as well. 

As for me, I spent the majority of my time in stores such as Loft, Steve Madden, Banana Republic, Express, Kate Spade, Charlotte Russe, etc. The list could go on and on at how many great options they had for shoppers! It was not difficult for me to find clothing that I loved, that was in style, and was an amazing price. For example, I went to Loft and probably bought out the entire store (no lie LOL) and spent under $100. You truly cannot beat that kind of a deal! 

I highly recommend checking out the venue for yourself!!! It is perfect for a fun day of shopping in Fort Worth!
