SIMPLICITY WITH WHITNEY LEWIS

November 20, 2013

wedding planner and designer, and a self-proclaimed southern girl. I grew up all over the country but I currently reside in Scottsdale, Arizona with my husband and our two furry children. I became business partners with the wedding planner I hired to help me with my wedding after a few months of planning together. We love creating a stress-free beautiful day for our brides, grooms, and their families. As someone who wants to make JOY happen in every aspect of my life, it is such an honor to be a part of the start of my bride and groom’s life together and to be trusted with a such a special day in their lives.

I must say, I almost fell over when Emily and Gina asked me to be a part of this feature. I am such a fan of these two ladies! I really love everything they do and what the Emily Ley brand stands for; it’s extremely inspiring to me! (Photo by Gina Zeidler)

Whitney!! You are the sweetest. We adore this gal and we’re stoked to introduce her to you. She’s such a sweet cheerleader for our brand and just genuinely thoughtful girl. I met Whitney when I sat across from her at Making Things Happen in Phoenix. And the rest was history! :)

MY SIMPLIFIED PLANNER: I have always been a lover of planners so when I saw this one I knew it was going to become a huge part of my life!! I love the Simplified Planner because there is enough room for me to write down every meeting, address, to-do, and meal for each day even with my giant handwriting. I also put notes on the side of each week and month so that I can plan ahead for each of my weddings and not having to go back into each folder. It really keeps me organized while balancing work and home life. (PS– I’m SUPER excited about the new Simplified App!!)

MASON JAR TUMBLER: There are three things I never leave home without my iPhone, Simplified Planner and water! Living in Arizona I can’t run a single errand without a bottle of water with me. I love this one because it doesn’t sweat all over everything and most of all, it’s super adorable… Mine is navy stripes with a pink “W” and a teal bow. Love! The ladies at this shop are so sweet too!!

IBOOKS: One of my favorites hobbies since I was little is reading, nothing better than sitting outside on a fall day in a big comfy chair curled up with a great book! My favorite feature is the “Sample” because any time I see a book that I think might be interesting or someone recommends a book to me, I just add the sample to my ibook, that way I never forget about it.  When I finish one of the 3 books I’m currently reading I can go back and check out the samples I have. It makes traveling so awesome too, you never run out of something to read!

TIEKS: I know Emily included Tieks too, but I can’t tell you my TRUE 6 favorite products without including these amazing shoes!! As a wedding planner you could have 12 + hour day on wedding day and only get to sit at 9pm when you finally get to eat for 10 minutes, these shoes have saved my feet! I usually bring two pairs with me just in case so I love how they can fold up so I can throw them in my wedding day bag without taking up a lot of space. But I have never had bring out the second pair! And really if you aren’t sold on their adorable shoes, the people at Tieks will make you a loyal customer, their customer service is beyond amazing!

PLAN TO EAT: I found this website through Emily’s blog and have been using it every since. One of my favorite things about it is how easy it is to add a new recipe. I always “pin” new recipes on Pinterest but I hardly ever go back to look at them. So what I started to do is go into my Pinterest once a month and add them to Plan To Eat, it’s as easy as “pinning.” I also love how it breaks down the ingredients for grocery shopping. I wish I could say I plan our meals every week consistently but I have to say when I actually do it makes everything a breeze. “Why don’t I do this all the time?” I always say to myself :-)

MICHAEL KORS JET SET MACBOOK TRAVEL TOTE: This bag is exactly its name “Jet Set Travel Tote” I always joke that I am a traveling office because every where I go I am traveling with things most people just keep in their office at all times. So when my wonderful, thoughtful, adorably sweet husband, Cory, surprised me with this gem, I was over the moon! Yay! Finally something SUPER cute but can still fit everything I need without the fear of breaking my bag or my back! I use it every day and always have plenty of space for my laptop, iPad, Simplified Planner, and Mason Jar Tumbler! I don’t know what I would do without it!!

THE SIMPLICITY SERIES features busy gals, in different stages of life, making what matters happen and tips and tricks they’ve found to be helpful. Simplicity is about building margin into your life and spending time on and with that which fuels your heart. While we love to share products and services that help us day to day, but simplicity is about HEART and intentionally choosing the thing that matters most (your TREASURE) more than anything money can buy. We wear many hats and we know you do too, so we’d love to hear your thoughts as well! 

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Luke 12:34
