If there’s one product I was dreaming of existing for The Happy Planner it is absolutely and one hundred percent notebooks. I am a serious notebook aficionado and I might have an issue with hoarding them. The back to school season is my happy time and the amount of brand new notebooks I collect each season is a little astronomical. New binder for the year? CHECK! Tons of loose leaf paper? DOUBLE CHECK! Piles and piles of adorable notebooks? Triple, quadruple and quintuple check! Imagine my elation at the first social media sighting of the new Happy Notes line by The Happy Planner.
I can truthfully and honestly say that the hunt for these notebooks began almost immediately. Unfortunately, the amount of Joann Fabrics that carry The Happy Planner in store in New Jersey is practically non-existant. During the release of The Happy Planner Girl only FOUR Joann stores carried the line. Four. Quatro. Quatre. Know how close any of those stores were? Nearly two hours away from where I live. The horror. The worst part of the entire situation? One of those five stores closed, meaning that only four exist. Despite all of this and the lack of stores actually carrying the product, I am totally excited for this brand new line!

I think a lot of people are going to be super excited about this PenGems collection. Every release is special, but I think the nature of this one will cause a buzz. This collection takes some amazing PenGems classics and adds the perfect touch. This set of four pens features Neverland, Heartbreaker, Caribbean Blue, and Antoinette with a twist!

If you’re a millennial in this day and age you have to read The Millennial’s Guide to Changing the World by Alison Sher. This book offers a true and raw view of the world that we, as millennials, have to deal with each and every day. Throughout all of the humorous monologue, Alison Sher speaks one major truth – we are all in this together. You will cry from hysterical laughter and repeat the words, “That is 100% me” over and over and over again.
Alison Sher takes the time to explain situations not only through personal stories but through stories of other millennials. With a vast digital landscape where everyone tries to pretend that everything is okay, it’s refreshing to see that we’re all just trying to figure it all out. We are the generation where things are not done in the traditional fashion and we’re paving the way for future generations to come. Most of all, we’re taking the time to pave the way for ourselves. This book helps to guide us in living with purpose and changing the world.
The Millennial’s Guide to Changing the World touches on a variety of topics such as relationships, our working lives, and so much more. The best part of it all is that these stories are real, raw, and extremely relatable. Instead of fictitious tales of our generation, we can find similarities to each and every story.
While this book is geared to millennials, it can honestly span generations. Not only does it give our generation a voice, but older generations can begin to understand the wide-spread issues we endure and younger generations can learn from our mistakes. We have got a whole lot of living to do and we all have to do it together.
There is a reason that The Millennial’s Guide to Changing the World hit #1 on Amazon. You will not want to put this book down!
I spent a lot of time debating on whether or not I wanted to make this post. This post was also meant to go up earlier, but it’s okay. I think I lost track of time trying to figure out whether this post would actually go up. I’ve had many discussions with some of my friends on the topic and at the end of them all, I realized something. Even though I know I would have been a great fit, I am totally okay with the fact I didn’t make The Happy Planner Squad. It sounds crazy, but I have some really good reasons why.

It has been a while since a new PenGems collection has been released! However, the reason for the delay has been for nothing but good reasons. In the time between City Pop and Spring Fling, PenGems has moved to a brand new warehouse with plenty of space for beautiful, sparkly, and absolutely perfect pens! We’ve also started to enter the realm of VIP pen releases! Unfortunately I haven’t hit the VIP tier just yet, but the first pen released was gorgeous. These moves are 100% exciting and I couldn’t be happier for the success of the company and for all of the wonderful VIPs! That being said, us PenGemians have been hungry for new pens. The release of PenGems Spring Fling collection could not have come at a more exciting time.
