May Designs {Review + A GIVEAWAY!}

May Books

Happy Monday Dolls!  I figured we should start the week off with a giveaway for a product that I have been raving about for the past few weeks.  If you follow along with this blog, you will have seen it here, here, here, my Instagram and Facebook accounts.  I am pretty much obsessed with my May Book.  Here is a peek at it:

May Designs Review and Giveaway I first spotted a May Book a month ago and fell instantly in love.  May Designs succeeds in combining three of my favorite things: monograms, beautiful paper goods and organization.

As a working Mom I have a lot of balls in the air and I HATE using an electronic planner.  I have tried apps that sync up on my iPad and iPhone and I am not a fan.  I am old school and I like to use pen and paper.  I love to make lists and cross things off.  I will even go so far as to add things to my list that I have recently accomplished just so I can cross it off.  (Haha! DON’T JUDGE!)  This planner is only a bit larger than a checkbook and it fits right in my purse.

One of my favorite parts of May Designs is their website.  It is EXTREMELY user friendly!  You begin by choosing a pattern (this may take a while because there are so many pretty ones to choose from).  Then you pick a background shape, typographic style and monogram color.  As you make selections it will show you what your May Book will ultimately look like.  I am a very visual person and I loved that I could see it all together and change things until I was happy with the end result.  

There are all different options for the book itself.  You can create an agenda, address book, meal planner, calorie and exercise journal, baby diary, bump diary, etc.  I wanted a planner and I chose the academic agenda because there is a monthly section and a weekly section.  I have been using washi tape and an extra fine sharpie to keep it organized.

    I had never heard of these before! I love how you can customize so much of it! That is awesome. So many pretty designs and features. I really need to force myself to use a planner again. They make life so much easier! I haven’t really used one since college.

    I love planners too!!! My favorite design is the pink background with the tiny bees. Thanks for the idea about the washi tape. I plan to try that!
