Fall is in full season in my neck of the woods. The temperatures fell almost 30 degrees this week. It was cold and rainy and perfect autumn weather. This time of the year is one of my favorites. I enjoy the holidays and spending time with family. Needless to say, I’m ready to get on with the rest of the year, lol. With this week in mind, I want to share a few of my favorite things. If you know me then you know that I’m a planner and bullet journal junkie. Adding to my sticker stash and washi tape inventory is always top-of-mind. I included a few current faves in my list for you to peruse and purchase (if you desire). I love a good die-cut sticker (all planners do).


So, without hesitation, I present to you my favorite things for Friday, October 19. Let me know what you think.


My Favorite Things

Oh So Paper Cardi B Stickers

I know Cardi B has been in the news lately for some not-so-flattering things. However, she recently celebrated her birthday! Happy birthday, CARDI B! I enjoy her music and was excited to see these stickers become available from Oh So Paper. I was lucky enough to get the bundle that includes the stickers, die-cuts and a digital download. The bundles have completely sold out.

Simply Gilded Washi Tape

This washi tape is hard to come by. Irene, the sole owner, designer and curator of the shop, only produces the tape in limited quantities throughout the year. I joined her subscription box program a few months ago. I just received my September Box to and I’m excited about the contents. My favorite item is the Gel Stone Pen (I’m a sucker for a good pen)! The washi tape is really pretty. I think you will love it too! You can get details on the subscription box and more >>> HERE.


FYI: these washi tape rolls are selling for big bucks on EBay, in case you’re interested in that type of thing.

The Hate You Give Book by Angie Thomas

The movie premieres nationwide today, and I plan to go see it soon. The film is based on the popular novel by Angie Thomas. I admit, I have yet to read it. However, I am “reading” the audiobook in my spare time. I’m excited that Angie Thomas will be a featured speaker next spring on the University of Arkansas campus. I can’t wait to see her. You can purchase the book >>> HERE and view the trailer below.

New Amsterdam | TV Show | NBC 

This medical drama premiered last month on NBC. I decided to watch the fist episode, and I was hooked. I enjoy dramatic shows. New Amsterdam reminds me of Grey’s Anatomy with a twist. The narrative follows the daily happenings of New Amsterdam hospital in NYC through the eyes of the new medical director, Dr. Max Goodwin. If you liked ER and enjoy Grey’s Anatomy, you will be a fan of this show too. Let me know if you check it out.

Timeular Tracking Device

I saw this device on Facebook. It helps you track your time to be more productive. You flip the device to track different categories. You can even write on it to add customization. It looks like a cool thing. I’m adding it to my Holiday Wish List. What do you think? Would you use a device like this?

There you have it. I included journal items, a new TV show, an audiobook and more. I hope you have a wonderful fall weekend. Be sure to stop and enjoy the weather, your surroundings and, most of all, your family. Until next week, I hope you enjoyed my favorite things.
What did I miss? What favorite things are you loving this week?

    Those Cardi stickers are adorable! I love the dress she wore in that shoot. I need that TimeFlip in my life, but I get so distracted, I’d forget to use it, lol.

    Cardi B, looks pretty, but I don’t think her actions reflect the look. I’m tired of seeing celebrity women behaving like street trash. The segment of the post I enjoyed the most was the Timeular Tracking Device because this is the area that I struggle with the most.
