2013 Must Have: Belle de Jour Power Planner 2013

Hi Lovelies,
I can't wait to have my Belle de Jour 2013 Power Planner!!!
Despite the fact that 2012 was definitely a busy year, my BDJ helped me a lot with planning and organizing my daily, weekly and even monthly tasks. 
My mind would have been cluttered with thoughts and plans if without my BDJ Power Planner. 

What I love about Belle de Jour Power Planner? 
It is especially made for the Pinay fashionista achiever. The term Belle de Jour (bel duh zhoor’) is French fashion lingo for “It” girl, we have redefined it to mean the modern day renaissance woman who dares to achieve her goals, lives her dream life, makes a difference in her community, while doing everything in great style. 

The power planner includes time-management principles to help BDJ Girls manage their life better, articles and affirmations to inspire them to live life to the fullest and of course, coupons to remind them of work-life balance.

Good news!!!
You can also order on line: Belle de Jour Products

Let me show you what's inside the Belle de Jour Power Planner 2013. :)

The Weekly Layout Feature:

This feature will help you plan and mange your weekly activities specifically by day. We’ve provided special boxes for your little personal errands, things to follow-up on, most important tasks, random thoughts, personal lists and weekly affirmations. We’ve also printed some of the BDJ Girls’ personal affirmations on why they are remarkable to keep you inspired throughout the week.

The Monthly Tools:

The monthly tools section of the planner gives you an over view of the whole month. We’ve included spaces for your monthly treats, work-related rocks, personal goals, important events, gratitude lists and good deeds. With this layout, you can easily jot down parties, events and birthdays so you won’t forget to RSVP.

This one excites me! The Wardrobe Checklist! :)

Use this checklist to keep track of your old and new fashion pieces, so you can build a timeless wardrobe.

I also love the Dream Board/ Goal

Knowing concretely what you want for yourself is one of the few steps to reach your goal. With everything moving fast as lightning it’s easy to lose track of what’s most important to us. Remember—that which matters the most should never give way to that which matters the least. Use these pages to keep focus and keep your life on track

On the other hand, planning your dream vacation is a bit stressful. Let your BDJ help you with that.
Planning ahead of time is needed in order to have a successful vacation. Use this planner to organize the things you need to do before the dreamed vacation.

Setting an effective health and fitness plan will get you from where you are to where you want to be. Use the workout plan to schedule your exercise

Check out this year’s amazing coupons included in your BDJ Planner!

Throughout the week, we encounter new ideas, websites, proposals, etc. This section is for these new discoveries that you may want to go back to when you’re chilling out at home, relaxing. Who knows this could be your next big thing? For some, planning and categorizing what to give to whom help keep the budget manageable, after all what’s important is not the value but the thought behind it.

BDJ Planner’s most popular feature – well you know what this is. Something to bring along when you visit the gyne.
This is also very helpful especially to those who are experiencing an irregular monthly period.

Cash Flow & Bills Tracker:
Know your monthly bills. Budget your hard-earned money and keep track of your monthly expenses, shopping splurges included. We’ve added the cash flow tracker to help you see in a page your savings, your target savings, cash source or income and the main bulk of your expenses. Do note that you should tally your bill total from the bills tracker and input it on your cash flow tracker for non-bill items to be included. This way you realize where your money is going.

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.” 
― Christian D. LarsonYour Forces and How to Use Them

***Blazer VoilĂ ***

Hey Lovelies,
How's everyone? I would just like to share my outfit at work. 
Due to the hectic lifestyles that we are all leading these days, I believe that in the future more fashion will be focused on two-in-one versatile outfits that can be altered to suit different occasions.
This dress may look familiar because I wore it once during my sister's birthday last year. lol 
All I need to do is to add something to make it look a little bit corporate, how about a black blazer? VoilĂ !!!

*** Jhaki's 29th: Room & Closet Cleaning Day***

Hi Lovelies,
I missed everyone! I've been busy for the last couple of months because of my husband's homecoming plus work errands.
Last July 4 was my 29th Birthday!
On the other hand, I already celebrated my birthday in advance on our Wedding Anniversary with family and closest friends.
However, instead of throwing another party I decided to clean my room and invited my best friends after wards. You might say it's boring, but it was one of the happiest and most relaxing birthday I ever had. I cooked some snacks and dinner for them.
Check out our photos! ^^

My room is a place for me to get away from all of the daily ruckus. I made sure I made it a place that inspires me constantly and motivates me to step outside of my comfort zone when it comes to fashion. 
I come here to rest, relax, blog, and get ready for my day.

Since my husband is working overseas, I have the privilege to designed and organized our room the way I want. :)

Here's my shoe closet

Book and file shelves

My portraits

 Our wedding day portrait 

Here are some tips to clean and organize your own room:
Be Motivated

Put on an album that you enjoy singing or dancing along with

Open all of your curtains or blinds and, if you would like to, the windows themselves to let in some light and some fresh air.

Sweep out everything from under the bed and dressers

Gather the trash and throw it away

Put everything in your room that you need to put away in a big pile on your bed

Organize any dresser drawers.

Fold or hang your clean clothes, while throwing the dirty ones in the laundry pile

Attack the pile. Put everything in its place

Time for the bed. Strip it bare.

Clean! Brush all dust and cobwebs off the ceiling and floor corners. 

Now take a break.

Stack your books and magazines neatly, even those on the floor

Straighten or organize anything else that needs attention.

Mop or vacuum the floor, if you haven't already.

Spray some air freshener 

Reward yourself when you're done with something you enjoy.

Relax in your clean room.

Here's my 29th Birthday Celebration :)

Thank you so much for viewing!
