Loving It: The Desire Map Planner

My love of planners and planning is no secret. Some people might think it's crazy that I use a few different planning and tracking systems, but it seems to work really well for me... probably because writing things down is literally the only way I can ever hope to remember anything. February and March weird ...

Top 7 Favourite Books

I recently finished the last course of my editing certificate. On the first night of almost every course, we had to share facts about ourselves, which usually included our favourite book.

Loving It: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Continuing my time-honoured tradition of being totally late to the party on things, let me tell you about this not-at-all-new TV show I've been watching lately: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
