Hi everyone! I recently shared my April favorites with all of you. Now it’s time to show exactly what I did throughout the month of April… or at least how I planned things out with an April 2016 Plan With Me post!
April 2016 Plan With Me: At-a-Glance Monthly View
As always, I start off with the monthly at-a-glance view. This month looks very bare because I didn’t write down all the shifts I worked. Instead, I only listed important dates, bill due dates, and scheduled blog posts. I really do like the April colors though… And that purple glitter washi tape! ?
April 2016 Plan With Me: Week 1
In my Erin Condren LifePlanner, the month of April started on the same page as the end of March. Since I like to stick to the color schemes of each month, I decided to incorporate both March colors and April colors for Week 1. It turned out really nice and vibrant! The blues, greens, and purples remind me of Monsters Inc. for some reason.
April 2016 Plan With Me: Week 2
I just love the April colors, don’t you?! Not a lot happened during Week 2 of April. April 4th was Opening Day and I’m so happy baseball is back! It’s one of my favorite things about spring. I saw Tyler the Creator and let me just say, his show was sooo lit. My sister and I stayed on the 21+ side so we could get drinks and have space to ourselves but we still had a lot of fun. I also hit 100 followers on Bloglovin’! It’s not a huge milestone to some people but it still means the world to me. I love knowing that I’m entertaining and helping others with my blog posts.
April 2016 Plan With Me: Week 3
Week 3 of April 2016 was also quite eventful. Every spring semester, my university holds an annual event called “Vintage Days” that lasts throughout the weekend. It’s like a mini-fair where there’s food, vendors, games, and music. It was lots of fun but so hot outside! It was also Thai/Lao/Cambodian New Year. Even though I’m Vietnamese, it’s still fun to take part in other cultures’ activities. And honestly, the food is the main reason why I’d want to celebrate!
April 2016 Plan With Me: Week 4
I absolutely looove how Week 4 turned out. Unlike other weeks, I staggered my headers and boxes so not everything was uniform and symmetrical. Honestly, I feel like this gives the weekly spread better composition than a more systematic design.
April 2016 Plan With Me: Week 5
I kind of slacked off during Week 5 of April because I’ve been working a lot of doubles at work. Although I come home extremely exhausted, the extra cash is nice. Especially since there are a lot of birthdays and anniversaries in the month of May for my family. This week also transitioned into the May colors so I incorporated both months’ color schemes. I love the pretty pastels!
That’s about it for April. Stay tuned for May’s Plan With Me post! Like I said, there will be a lot to cover. There’s my mom’s birthday, Mother’s Day, my birthday, my sister’s birthday, my graduation, my parents’ anniversary, my cousin’s engagement party, and the list goes on! May is the month when I’m busy and broke but I love it because I get to spend time with my family.
What are you looking forward to in the month of May? Let me know in the comments!
