Sometimes you need a reminder that you are ‘not sorry’ for being who you are or going after what you want. Whether you wear it on your neck or on your head, wear it proudly. The not sorry necklace comes in a lovely package and is a great quality. I always get compliments when I wear it! The hat version is a gorgeous Tiffany-blue (my personal favorite) with embroidery.

I found How to Bullet Plan when I was in Scotland after trying to read the (terribly boring & hard to understand) Bullet Journal book, read it on the plane home, and am already implementing it. It’s simple, easy-to-read, and way better than any planner I’ve ever tried. [MS]

If you want to lead in this world, you’ve got to constantly learn. For the person on the go there is nothing better than audio books. Some of my favorite books were devoured using Audible while doing laundry, taking the dog for a walk or commuting to work. A few of my favorites from Audible include:


Blogger. Marketer. Deadline juggler. Flibbertigibbet. A fan of all things glitter and girly, Jen’s passions include gabbing with girlfriends, running marathons, sipping (okay, gulping) cocktails and waxing poetic about the tortured soul of Professor Snape. Rarely found without her nose in a book (or her iPhone), she acknowledges that her level of geekery might not be for everyone. Consider yourself warned. Her ultimate goal in life is to be a professional wanderer of the internet or Amy Poehler’s BFF. (Both totally accomplishable, of course.)
