STIL IRL: Mary-Anne Ramirez
April 22, 2019
Name: Mary-Anne Ramirez
Occupation: Graphic designer
I'm a graphic designer, so my job is filled with meetings and making deadlines. Before these products, I had a million sketchbooks filled with blank pages that I would just fill with random notes and doodles. So I really didn't have any direction or organization in my life. Using STIL products has definitely improved my productivity and made me a better designer and girl boss! I start off my day by packing all my essentials in my Moderna crossbody bag. I make sure I have my MetroCard (can't forget that in NYC!) and money for lunch in the Moderna wallet. I also pack my lipstick, planning stickers, and pens in the Moderna Expose case. Once I'm all set with my items for the day, I write in the Daily Journal. If it's a Monday, I use the Bumble planner to plan out my entire schedule for the week.
The Moderna Set: Because I'm always on the go, I was the type of person who would just dump everything into her bag. By the end of the work week, it would be nearly impossible to find notes I've taken during meetings or sketches I was working on in my bag. I love that the Moderna set allows me to organize my items in a way that makes sense. The leather material and monogram tassel give it a professional, personal look which I absolutely love!

The Daily Journal: I write in my Daily Journaling daily. I start by writing the date, filling out the trackers, and writing my tasks for the day. I then fill out other sections such as the water tracker and what I ate as the day goes on.
The Bumble Planner: It helps me stay on track with the projects that are due each day of the week, while the Daily Journal helps me stay on track mentally. The daily affirmation and happiness tracker in the Daily Journal is a wonderful touch. As someone who deals with anxiety, it's very important to have those mental check-ins each day.
