A few days ago I introduced you to my A5 Filofax Fuchsia Patent. I LOVE that planner; it’s a beauty and a great size for my home planner. What I found, however, is that it wasn’t really working for me as a planner to track my dailys since I wasn’t carrying it around with me. I needed something smaller and little more portable. Something I could toss in my bag and carry around with me.
And suddenly there she was and it was love at first sight. Her name is Kate.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Kate Spade Wellesley planner at the outlet not too far from where I work. To be honest, I went in hoping for a rose gold, but got there minutes after the last one was sold and was a little bummed so I got the black. But now, oh my goodness, I could not be happier with the black one!
The black exterior and the pop of the hot pink interior really lend themselves beautifully to my fondness for bright, bold colors.
I’d never had a zip around closure planner but now, after carrying it around for the last couple of weeks, I find that I’m really loving it. This personal sized planner goes with me everywhere and I like knowing that its contents are safely secured inside.
Having a dedicated place to track all of this information has been a Huge help in my daily pursuit to a better me
I gave some serious though to how I wanted to use this agenda. I knew that I wanted to use it to track my dailys, such as nutrition, fitness, to-do lists, shopping lists and personal growth so I reformatted my custom A5 daily inserts to fit the personal size of this planner. Having a dedicated place to track all of this information has been a Huge help in my daily pursuit to a better me.
My daily inserts are 2 pages, but I find that I really only use 1 page on the weekends as I don’t have as many errands and to-dos.
While I do keep a monthly overview calendar in here for quick reference, I won’t be doing a lot of actual “planning” in this planner. I’ll be using it as more of a brain dump. A place to jot down notes, random thoughts, inspiration, and also a place to keep track of online purchases and things that pique my interest that I want to research in-depth when I have more time.
Since we’re already well into October and Dia de Los Muertos is right around the corner, I immediately set about to prettify my Kate Spade with some inserts, a dashboard and a few planner clips. I’m drawn to the imagery and bright colors associated with this holiday and figured that the theme would go well with the hot pink interior color. Side Note:These Day of the Dead clips are currently available in my Etsy shop.
I needed some stickers to spruce up my inserts so naturally I turned to Etsy and found these cuties by Inky Dinky Printing that coordinated perfectly with my clips… Score!
I’m so beyond pleased with this Kate Spade Wellesley planner and feel that I have finally achieved planner peace, at least for my dailys!
Thanks for reading and as always, I wish you Happy Planning!
