Belle de Jour Power Planner, is designed and created by Ms.Darlyn Ty. It all started in 2006 when Darlyn couldn’t find the perfect planner and decided to create one that would actually fit her (a girl’s) lifestyle. After conceptualizing, she printed her planner and used it. She eventually received compliments and soon after, with the help of her friends, she decided to make this amazing planner available to every women.

I like to share some event photos from my co-bella and from the BDJ Team.

Credits to my Co-Bella Ms. Angel Matocinos  and The BDJ Team for the event photos. visit www.belledejourpowerplanner.com
