Ashley Brown is a mother, nurse educator, and (from her website) — “self-proclaimed routine queen!”. I love this so much, as I don’t think routines get enough attention and Ashley shines the light on them that I believe they deserve!
In the episode, we discuss how she got started with her own routines, a bit about the story of the business, and she shares some of her own routines around planning and staying organized.
Shown below are her Daily Routine notepads & Menu Planning pad (both can be found here). I ordered these before our interview (had to try out the goods!) and found them both to be lovely.
VERY pretty and calming colors, lots of room to write, and crisp bright-white paper that was not smudge-prone (yay). Annabel actually has enjoyed filling out the daily pad on occasion!
The daily pad in particular would be perfect for someone who wants to daily plan on occasion but not frequently enough to warrant a separate daily planner.
Currently, Ashley is also partnering with She Rises, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help young mothers navigate motherhood. She is looking for volunteers to purchase her Mother’s Day Self Care kit (she has set a goal of 50!) for donation to this organization. 10% of proceeds would be donated as well.
So if you’d like to support Ashley AND She Rises, you can use the following link to purchase a kit for donation: https://routineandthings.com/discount/sponsor
I just donated one! (Seemed like a great way to thank Ashley and get the morning started on a happy note.)
WarmnFuzzy yarn! Okay yes, the owner of this North Carolina-based shop is my sister. But if you’ve been looking for a small business retailer of hand-dyed yarns, look no further. She also has subscription boxes now!
