My Planners: Kate Spade Agenda, Colour Crush & Happy Planner

Hi everyone,

I have officially gone…… nuts and, yeap, I made a ‘proper’ YouTube channel (prepare yourselves for what follows).

One of my first videos is about planners because I love planning, organising, planners and pretty stuff. So, pour yourself some coffee, get some pop corn and watch me chat about planners.

If you want to, you can subscribe to my channel, but there will be a lot of makeup talk there , so consider yourself warned. Having said that, any support is appreciated….

So, here is a post about different planners and how I use them. You may get some ideas.

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh! Don’t forget to follow my blog and connect with me somewhere/somehow (check out my sidebar and start clicking!!).



Plan with me: 2nd- 9th October

Morning, afternoon or evening everyone!

So, it’s Sunday morning in Greece (that’s where I am at the moment) and TTP (aka Time To Plan). I haven’t done a plan with me post for ages. So, I decided I wanted to do a rose-themed planner spread with a few stripes. You can check out my spread and download my washi strips (the big rose washi) at the end of the post if you want to recreate (or create a better spread than me 🙂 <3. I do a lot of planner reviews, so do follow my blog (check the sidebar on the left hand side) or just give my Facebook page a ‘like’ and that way you won’t miss out on my super duper posts. Oh!I am colourblind, so if the colours look random…. forgive me 🙂 So, let’s check out my spread.

ROSE themed washi Tape.jpg

I bought digital paper from the Etsy store Sybil Design (she has beautiful floral digital paper and sales at the moment).I washi-taped all the tabs and put my work schedule on the left page. I used the notes section for bills and stuff I want to check out.


My right hand side has to do with my blog stats (yeah, that part will bore you unless you are a blogger).

I found this Red striped Washi Tape on Amazon (affiliate links) and the Vintage Floral Washi tape set  you may want to check out as well.

I blog about makeup, clothes, travelling and I buy stuff which I review/share with you, so if you like the same things as me, don’t forget to follow. Check out my September favourites  while still drinking your coffee (or tea). I think I will be doing #Blogtober which is blogging every (other) day (for me). So, stay tuned. Oh!

Kate Spade 2017 Agenda Review & How I Use it

Hi lovelies,

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.


The agenda

First impression: I would say it looks chic and sophisticated.

The exterior

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.

If you are looking for a binder, check out the A2 Colour Crush binder


I have reviewed both on my blog as well. Check the planning category on my side bar for the reviews and other planner related topics/ freebies./ printables.

Plan with me: Printable and Coupon Code

Hi loves!!

This week’s post is a reverse plan with me! Yup! I am going to share a printable, an interview with an Etsy store owner, and a fantastic  coupon code, but my plan with me post will come up some time later this week cause I am out of ink (gotta be honest!). I also want to jazz things up a bit and invite you to make a spread, share it in the Facebook groups you found this post, and if I have your permission, then I will share your pics here as well(let’s be a bit more interactive , shall we?). So first of all, make sure you follow my blog (it’s as easy as giving my Facebook page a ‘like’) and let’s get down to business.

Sunflowers PIN.jpg

I ❤ sunflowers (and Van Gogh of course) and I haven’t really seen sunflower spreads, so I thought I’d buy some digital paper and make a printable. I also contacted the store owner, Tamara,  asked her if she would be willing to give my readers a coupon code (she said yes) and if she would like to answer a few of my questions. So, without further ado, let’s get this post started already!!

Let’s meet Tamara from TbL Simply Digital

I asked Tamara to tell me a bit about herself, what inspires her and

Well I am a school teacher  turned artist…..did study art in College and learned how to cut my photos and paintings on photoshop and learned to build rooms, streets then towns (you can read my bio about that) and also at the end of my shop it tells what inspires me like light and color. My digital papers are an extension of my clip art, making a design out of them, usually repeating the design and saving the pattern and using really good background papers to put the pattern on. My Van Gogh one was an extension of my love of impression and post impression as well as all things French, Italian, and anything from the UK. I have traveled a lot and love to express recently in my art around the world of my experiences from lots of traveling almost around the world.. I am really a lover of color and light. I am still fairly new as a shop starting August 21, 2015 and have been (knock on wood) fairly successful of what I really LOVE to do.

My Printable

4 full boxes and 4 half pic/ half white. The dimensions are: height 1.5 and width 2.5 inches (I have the happy planner with the heart).


So, this is the printable and you can download it below.

Sunflower printable

Remember that your printer settings need to be at ‘fit actual size’.

The Coupon Code

You can check out Tamara’s store (and support her at this new beginning) by using this code: 20FORU (you get 20% Off)

There is a lot you can do with digital paper. You can make cards, nabbers, printables. You can use it for your printables. I even used it for documents I use for my blog. The sky is your limit. You can also find printables in Tamara’s store and make posters and frames for your home decor. You can also buy clipart and use that in any way you want!!! This is a great opportunity!!

Share with me (blog feature)

Once you have downloaded the printable, used it, added your washi tape, and made everything look nice and pretty, you can share you pic under my Facebook post (where you saw this) or email me (see my about page). I will be sharing your pics at the end of May ( I hope someone decides to take me up on my offer). I am excited!!!!

This is not a sponsored post. I found Tamara’s store by chance and made a lovely new friend!
