As the New Year arrives, many of us are reflecting on the previous year. Did we accomplish our resolutions? Was the year meaningful? Did I do everything I could to make it great?

When it comes to reflecting on the past year, all I have to do is flip through my planner/agenda from 2016 and see just how much I accomplished. Knowing I conquered it all like a boss makes me feel like a super woman/mom/boss/girlfriend (and all the other amazing things I am).

As a working at home mom, I have tons to do and keeping up with it all gets difficult. I get involved with so many different things between work, blogging and family, taking on multiple tasks, all of which have their own deadlines. And quite honestly, I can’t keep up with them all unless I write them down. This is the main reason a planner is a must-have for me and you can definitely get a good look at my schedule just from taking a peek inside.

This year I decided to go bold, but still keep it classy with a large black/white striped Kate Spade New York agenda. I’ve actually been using it since the beginning of December since it’s a 17 month book and so far I’m really loving it.

With tab dividers for each month, there’s a mini to-do list compliments of Kate Spade New York featured for each one. I consider this a simple reminder to not get too busy to live and have fun.

January’s To-Do’s:

  • Send lots of thank-you notes
  • Read between the lines
  • Make a snow angel
  • Host a clothing swap
  • Join a book club

Behind each tab you’ll find a full monthly calendar, along with weekly divisions broken down by day. This is where I make a lot of entries in my own planner. It’s the only way I can keep up with what I need to get done that specific day and an easy way for me to mark each item off as I complete it. It’s certainly nothing overly complicated, but exactly what I need to keep my year organized.

Other notable features:

  • Large size (9.25″ x 7″ x 2″)
  • Beautiful hardcover
  • Elastic closure for secure keeping
  • Metallic gold spiral binding
  • 2 interior pockets for filing
  • Complete annual calendar
  • Section to note celebrations by month
  • List of 2017 holidays
  • Multiple pages of notes in the front as well as a couple pages behind each month’s tab

I just love the black/white stripes of my Kate Spade New York agenda, but if stripes aren’t your thing, there are other designs to choose from including Gold Polka Dots, Gold Caning and a Floral design. No matter which design strikes your eye, it can be purchased for $36. And I have to say this is probably the best $36 I’ve spent so far for the New Year.

  1. These look perfect for keeping track of not only the day to day things to get done, but also staying on target to completing larger monthly/yearly goals. Top notch!

  2. Very pretty planner, I love large hardcover planners. I am still trying to decide on one, guess I better get on it!

  3. Such a pretty planner! I love getting a new planner every year. Aren’t those pens great as well? Frixion pens are the best because they can erase all the events that change or any mistakes I make 🙂

  4. I love a good planner and I think Kate Spade planners are really nice. I have already bought my three planners for 2017- one for business/blogging, one for my daughter’s schedule and one for my personal schedule
