If you’ve been here at Sweet Country Roots for long then you know I am a type B, fly by the seat of my pants kinda girl. I love it, but I actually drive myself kinda crazy. I drool over my type A friend’s lesson plans and schedules. I have tried many different planners, notebooks, and calendars but still end up with sticky notes from one end of the counter top to the other.
I was given the opportunity to review The Homemakers Friend Daily Planner by Sue Hooley. I was so excited to get some organizing ammunition sent my way. Thumbing through the pages, the planner did not disappoint! I realized that Mrs. sue was my kinda lady! Turns out she has been a homemaker for over 24 years with six children. She definitely knew what she was doing when she created this planner to help this scattered brain of mine.
The planner has tabs for the year, month, and week, which is pretty standard, but it doesn’t stop there. Included are tabs for task, projects, and shopping list that you can tear out and take with you.
Out of all of this, my favorite part of the entire planner is the, “Weeks section.” Below each day is space for me to write things down for that specific day along with that days menu right beside it for an easy glance. (Those things are typically on the sticky notes) She didn’t include time slots which I love! She knew a homemaker’s day never looks the same and isn’t easily predictable. For me the time slots would only add to my anxiety of never being able to stick to it.
On a side note, it is actually very pretty with sweet scripture and quotes scattered throughout. And…. it fits in my pocket-book!!
I would highly recommend this planner to any and every homemaker out there rather you are super organized or are quite the mess like me. Head on over to Sue’s Website Here at the Homemaker’s Friend to grab you one before the new year of planning starts! You won’t be disappointed.
You can find Sue and her other products over at HomemakersDepot.com too.

So let me be perfectly honest, I am not a fancy jewelry or accessory type of girl. When it comes to my hair it’s either in a pony tail or I have a couple of bobby pins stuck in it somewhere. That is until I got this beautiful little package in the mail.
This Lilla Rose flexi clip is absolutely perfect for the practical momma like me who needs her hair up quickly, yet also needs to be reminded that she is in fact a girl! As I shopped for the flexi clip I wanted I was amazed at the abundance to choose from. Check out the different styles! Once I looked at it my first thought was, “How in the world do I put it in my hair and expect it to stay?” Let me tell ya, I pulled my hair back with it in five seconds and it STAYED without slipping the entire rest of the day. With 4 little ones you can only imagine how active I was all day.
It gets better, the next day I wore my hair differently with the same clip and my hair still did not fall out of it. Through my research on their website they have clips for every type of hair length and texture and even provide videos to help you pick out the one right for you.
Needless to say these are my new favorite hair accessories. It saves me time, aggravation, and helps me looked put together on those days when everything else is falling apart. I plan on purchasing some more for my little girls, birthday presents, and Christmas presents. Click on the link to check it our for yourself! Lilla Rose
A special thanks to Elizabeth Ours for letting me try out the flexi clip so I can share with my readers how awesome they are!
