New 2016 Kate Spade Agenda!

Ever since middle school and all the way through college, I was the girl with beautiful handwriting who would always keep a planner for all her to-do's and upcoming appointments. Little Miss Perfect, huh? I remember that my favorite part of going back to school was starting a new agenda. To give you an idea, my summer vacations consisted of theme parks, beaches and searching stationary sections in stores for my next fabulous weekly agenda. But somehow, as I ended college and started working full time, my planning habits and beautiful handwriting went away! Please let me know if this happened to any of you too.

Well this changed recently. You know that feeling you get when you are extra overwhelmed with too many things happening at the same time? That's exactly how I've felt these past weeks. I felt like I was juggling information in my mind and I needed a system to keep it in order. Not iCal, not a to-do list, not a notepad. An agenda.

Plus, you guys know I love watching Youtube Vloggers and lately I've been noticing a huge Planning community coming out of nowhere. And I gotta say I love it! It's been getting me back into my planning days and it sure has helped me get more organized. YES!

So long story short, after researching Erin Condren Life Planners, Day Designers, Design Love Co and Filofax planners, I decided the

large Kate Spade Agenda

would be the best way to get back on track with my planning habits.

I ended up calling my local Kate Spade to reserve my

17 month 2016 agendas in black and white stripes

. Now I'm in love and can't wait for August to start! But I can show you how this little masterpiece looks like here: 

Isn't their packaging amazing?

I made this dashboard from a promotional notepad I got a while back. You can check a tutorial

on how to do this from one of my favorite planning bloggers, MaeBad on Youtube.

I just really love how simple, clean and chic this agenda is. 

If you're still not convinced this planning community is for you, check out the #PlannerAddict tag on Instagram. 

I'm trying to use this blog to keep you guys updated with my agenda to see if I get a little bit excited about being organized again! Are you in for more posts like these?
