#CPCPlannerGirl Profile: @livebeautifullyandlove

We've met quite a few amazing individuals through Instagram who share the same love for washi tape, planners, bookmark tabs, and a good FriXion pen! Today, we're introducing Val of @livebeautifullyandlove. We just wrapped up a giveaway with her yesterday, giving one lucky follower a $20 gift code to That's all the more reason you should be following @coolpencilcase to keep up to date with new promotions and giveaways!

Read more on how Val stumbled upon the planner community and how it's helped her to keep more organized!

1. Describe your love of stationery to us.

Pretty paper just makes me happy! I love a crisp, clean new sheet, and the potential to create something beautiful on it!

2. What do you love best about your favorite Filofax/planner and why?

I used to have a spiral-bound planner. In the spring, I purchased my first ring-bound planner binder, and I'll never look back! My favorite thing about my ring bound planners is the fact that the rings make them so customizable! I change my mind a lot about what I want in my planner, so that feature is like gold to me!

3. Tell us about your favorite and most used Filofax/planner accessory?

Hands-down, my favorite and most used planner accessories are my tassels from Vanessa of Hautepinkfluff on Etsy (and Instagram)! They're so cute and fun, and the fact that they come in a variety of sizes and colors means that there's something for everyone, and every planner!

4. When did you start using your Filofax/planner and how did it change the
way you prepared for the day/week/month?

I've pretty much always use the planner. My school gave us one at the beginning of each year, and when I started working I just bought a small, very simple planner just to keep my work schedule straight. I really only started getting serious and having fun with my planner at the beginning of 2015. I discovered this whole planner community, and I love it! I'm much more organized now. I have everything in my planner--my schedule, meal planning, house cleaning routine, workout routine, to-do list, budget... the list goes on! It keeps me on task (except when I decide to make a new dashboard instead of going for a run), and has become one of my favorite hobbies!

5. How do you organize all of your stationery and supplies?

I posted a video of my supplies organization on my YouTube channel (Val Nach) a couple of months ago. Basically, I just use a raskog cart from IKEA to hold my stickers, small boxes of miscellaneous pieces, paper trimmer, washi tape (that I display in apothecary jars), etc. I also have several decorative stackable boxes that house my scrapbook paper pads, laminator, and other odds and ends.
