Favorite Way to Get Organized

I love my MMP – it’s the mom planner that has EVERYTHING! At first, it felt a little odd to go back to a paper planner – but I love the comfort my spiral bound planner offers! Check it out here!

They have options not only for moms, but college students, empty nesters and everything in between. If you’re looking to bring a little more order into your life this is the answer.



Do you hate fighting the crowds, waiting for a dressing room, and finding clothes to fit just right?

||Review|| Stitch-Fix: A New Way of Shopping




Do you have a hard time finding the right fit? Do you prefer a certain neckline or type of sleeve when it comes to your dresses? When I discovered Eshakti I found the perfect online store to customize dresses to be the way I like them. If you’ve never ordered anything from them, you’ve got to give it a try! In addition to dresses, they also sell tops, skirts, and jeans.

Here’s why I love eShakti:

  1. Customizable. I like dresses with sleeves and higher necklines and they are always so difficult to find. At eShakti, you can customize each piece. On most of the dresses, you can pick what kind of neckline you want, how long you want it to be, and how long you want the sleeves to be.
  2. Custom made. You give them all of your measurements so when you order it isn’t just a size 8. Your dress is made just for you and your measurements. I have a long torso and even if I find a dress that fits well, the waist on the dress is usually an inch or two too high. Eshakti solves my problem….And don’t forget pockets.  They can add them or take them away depending on your preference!
  3. Price and quality. The fabric and stitch quality on the items I’ve purchased has been wonderful. With a quality better than what you’d find in department stores, and a customized to fit you’d expect to pay a lot more. If you sign up for their email list, they will send you a coupon for a discount on your first purchase! Plus, they extra coupons after each order – it’s easy to find ways to avoid paying full price.
  4. Free returns. This is crazy to me considering that each item is custom. You can return unworn things for free. They even include a prepaid label to ship it back with.

The one downside is delivery does take a little longer than most online stores. Expect a 14-17 day wait – customization takes a little time.
