I’m a professional list maker. I live by my to-do list(s). They’re a key contributing factor to my productivity and I’ve been making them for years. They’re a good way to record thoughts, recommendations, random inspiration, etc. Plus, there’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of crossing things off a list.

I keep a ‘master to-do list’ in my notes app on my phone, but also have a bunch of smaller random lists I’m constantly updating. I love how it instantly transfers from my phone to my computer and is accessible at all times. It’s like a little electronic pocket note book I can access anywhere, anytime. Here’s a peek at the current lists I’m keeping. Hoping you can use these as a template for your own life ~ I’ve included some of my recs below!

1. Paint nails & toes 

2. Hair mask / deep conditioning day

3. Crest White Strips

4. Make a meal plan for the whole week

5. Challenge yourself to drink ‘x’ refills of your water bottle per day

Little gifts to send:

1. Send a candle to sis

2. Order mom the cookbook she’s been talking about

3. Online shop for cozy pj’s for a friend
