I asked Keisha a few questions about her planner style, why she loves XQS and how she makes those drool worthy planner layout photos.
Here's what Keisha had to say
I was introduced to the planning community in 2016 by joining the Facebook group Black Women Who Plan & Create. I had no idea the rabbit hole I was falling into. Avid use of calendars and lists from childhood helped to keep track of my life, however I had no clue planning was a thing.
My journey started using pocket rings, but I quickly realized more space was needed to write and of course "decorate." I graduated to personal rings then moved on to vertical spiral planners.
I choose spreads according to my mood, holidays or planner challenges. Spreads are always color themed and centered around a specific doll sticker and everything must coordinate (in my John Witherspoon voice).
My favorite supplies include doll stickers, washi, pretty pens and decorative clips.
My favorite shop is XQuisite Soul. XQS exhibits Black Girl Magic through the beautiful XQuibis that look like me and many of my planner friends. The variety of skin tones, hair styles and outfits speak to my soul. It's always hard to decide which to use or even use dolls from another shop.
When I say taking my pics is nothing out of the ordinary, I'm really telling the truth!! I use natural light and my Samsung S10+ cell phone. Pens and clips are props, then rearranged until I get the desired look. Nothing fancy, no light ring or box.
I've met some awesome, talented, kind ladies in person at conferences, in groups and Instagram during my planning journey. I wouldn't trade any of it for the world. XOXO
