I haven’t written one of these posts for ages, but today is the day I repost something I wrote for my girlie blog. An agenda review…. and yes, it’s fancy 🙂 ❤ ❤
So it’s white and gold and it has polka dots. What is it? If you love planning, are a planner junkie, and like pretty stuff, then keep reading. If you don’t, still humor me and keep reading, will you? ❤ ❤
I got my 2017 Kate Spade 17 month Large Agenda in August. The first thing that caught my eye was how pretty it was. You know when love hearts start flying out of your eyes? That was me when I saw this pretty agenda.
First impression: I would say it looks chic and sophisticated.
A thick cover. White and gold polka dots. the corners are slightly rounded. It closes with a black elastic band.
When you open the agenda on the 1st page it says,
This agenda belongs to……… if found please call…….
Then you have a glossy paper envelope/ pocket.
This is a 17 month Agenda, so it started August 2016 and ends December 2017. You can use the months that have gone by as a journal and keep memories.
The first pages of the Agenda are:
- Calendar of 2017/ 2018. Just the days/ dates in boxes. You cannot really write anything there.
- After that, you have lined boxes for monthly celebrations. There are 7 lines per month, six months per page.
- Then a list of all the holidays in 2017.
- Finally, there is a notes section (8 pages long).
Each month is introduced with a quote page. Before each month you have two notes pages. So, notes pages at the front of the agenda and extra notes pages before each month.
Monthly layout/ calendar/ agenda
Each month have a monthly overview which is on two pages (picture above). These are small boxes that are great to scribble in appointments and maybe even decorate a bit (if that’s your thing. It is mine). There is also a sidebar where you can take notes. Then you have a weekly overview (two lined pages). There are 8 lines per day. Saturday and Sunday are smaller sections. Each monthly tab is laminated, so they don’t wreck.
There is no pen holder but I slide my pen in the area where the spiral is and it does not slide off cause it is attached to the cardboard paper on the spiral. It is not heavy or bulky. It is an agenda I prefer to use at home though.
The large agenda retails for 34 dollars but there are smaller and cheaper ones.
How I use it
Well, if you have been reading my blog for a while, you know I am a ‘pretty’ planner. The planning process relaxes me because I make it more creative, I like to use stickers, draw etc. You can see pictures of my planning below.
There you have it. The 2017 agenda. If you want to get a Kate Spade 2017 agenda (like the one I have just described), you can find it here.
