Kate Spade New York Agendas

This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed, however, are mine and that of The Caro Diaries.

It's no secret that I love stationery. There's a little category over there on the right that says "Diary of a Stationery Whore", and that's kind of what I am. There's a little tingle that I get when I walk into Staples. Opening a new notebook is an exciting feeling. I genuinely look forward to August and back-to-school shopping because of all the stationery I get to buy. 


I definitely inherited that from my father. He's obsessed with stationery too - but pens especially. He has one pen that he uses for everything. He keeps it in his pocket, or in his briefcase, or car, and it writes like him. When I was younger, he would bring home random stationery from the office and I used to get so excited - about any of it: rolls of paper, pens, sticky notes, legal pads, you name it. He definitely fostered my addiction from a young age. 

So it's definitely no surprise that I love planners and agendas and organization too. If a client of my dad's would send him a yearly agenda, he would always give it to me growing up, and then a few years ago, I switched to Lilly agendas, and later Erin Condren. I always used my Erin Condren planner for school and my reminders, and I used to shove my blog posts in at the bottom, but now that I've added more things to my resume, I need the space more than ever, so I figured why not get my own blog planner. 

So when Lifeguard Press contacted me to review the newest Kate Spade agendas, I couldn't say no, and I'm so glad I didn't because it's absolutely beautiful. I have to say, these agendas are the perfect ones to transition into the real world. I have so many friends who use and adore their Lilly planners, but it's a little too colorful and bright for everyday office environments, that's why I love the new Kate Spade agendas. 

I chose the bella bookshelf print, and it is so me, and at $37, it's a steal for the 17-month calendar! 

What I love most about the Kate Spade planner is that it's sturdy, and includes a lot with it. The large agenda (this one) is 9"x7" and has a hardbound cover, with gold spiral binding - helloooo, it's gold!


Every month comes with a Kate Spade-type quote on the front, like May 2014's "treat yourself".

I paired my planner with my Kate Spade New York pencils, and my gold glitter-dipped mason jars (learn how to DIY here!)

Stop by Lifeguard Press today and order the new 2015 Kate Spade agendas! They're to die for!

  11. Such a chic planner! Through the years, my penmanship has gotten from worse to worst, no kidding. It will be a shame to use this beautiful planner with scribbles that are hardly legible :-) I like Kate Spade though
