I’ve enjoyed using a planner since I was in middle school. It helped me with organizing my daily tasks, project deadlines, and goals to accomplish each month. Ever now and then, I like to swap out my planners for different layouts and sizes.
I was using a planner I purchased from Amazon a while back. It was a hardcover and had blank monthly and weekly layouts. What I loved about this planner was that I didn’t feel restricted and I was able to create the layouts however I wanted to. There were some things I didn’t like about the planner. If I missed filling in a weekly layout that I end up skipping pages and having blank layouts. It was a hardcover planner and quite heavy to carry around. It was purchased from Amazon. I’ll link it right here to check out and/or use as a preference.
I recently changed my planner to Personal Planner because I wanted to downsize. I selected the Mixbook which let me choose the number of pages and the type of layouts. It was very exciting to create this because I got to select my own cover and have my own name on the front. The Mixbook has a total of 160 pages. I chose several layouts that currently suits my lifestyle.
Here is how my current set up looks like:
Every Day Gratitude – jotting down a few words each day helps with reflecting back on what I feel grateful for
Monthly Goals – this helps at the beginning of month to write down what I’d like to accomplish and get reflect at the end of month
Coloring Pages – there are a variety of coloring pages that Personal Planner that is randomly chosen in the Mixbook
Saving Little & A Lot – this a tracker to help save a certain amount of money each day up to $100 – $1000

I wanted to share with you today about my PM skincare routine. I honestly enjoy my PM routine more because I have a good amount of time to spend compared to my mornings. My mornings are usually rushed and packed with multiple things to do before heading out the door.
I switched many products in and out of my PM skincare routine because I have combination skin; both oily and dry. My T-zone is mostly oily and the rest of my face is dry. My skin is also prone to acne and I easily breakout. It really depends on the weather and my hormones.
Since I live in Hawaii, my skin does struggle with the humidity and the sun here. I hope this will help with anyone who is struggling with combination skin. Let’s get into it further down below! 🙂
Cleansing: I start by using I Dew Care Melting Makeup Remover Balm. This is a balm to oil cleanser that helps with taking off my makeup, removing dirt off, and also dislodging hard to remove products off my skin. After rinsing off, I would double cleanse by using Cocokind Oil to Milk Cleanser. I love how Cocokind cleanser is very gentle on my skin, and does not strip off any moisture. It seals in the moisture which makes my skin so soft!
Tone: After my skin is clean and clear, I tone it with Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening Toner. I like to place the toner on my hands and pat it all over my face. This toner tremulously helps with my uneven skin tone and brightening it up.
Eye Cream: I live for Cocokind Revitalizing Eye Cream! After discovering their eye cream, I was so impressed that it helped with brightening up my dark circles. My dark circles don’t appear as bad as it used to be. It also has a slanted application tip. It makes it easier to gently place on my skin and helps control of not overusing the product.
Serum: I use different serums however I’ve been loving the COSRX Propolis Light Ampoule. It feels a little bit sticky to me on certain areas of my face however it helps with stressed skin and reducing redness. It helps hydrating dry parts of my skin as well.
Moisturize: I also use different types of moisturizers. Lately I’ve been reaching for Cocokind Texture Smoothing Cream. It has truly improved my skin texture and skin tone. When I first read about their perception consumer study that after 4 weeks of using this cream, there are true and amazing results. I had to try it myself! I definitely agree that it is more compatible with breakouts and my skin also has a satin finish. I highly recommend this to anyone who has both oily and dry skin like me!
Thanks for reading and I hope this helps anyone out on their skincare journey!
