Inside the Kate Spade NY Planner

If you know me, you know that I am nothing without my planner. I live for finding the perfect planner and writing in it for the first time. Just last year I shared a post on my five favorite planners, which included the beautiful Kate Spade planners. I'm so excited to finally have my hands on this gorgeous large Kate Spade planner in Painterly Cheetah print thanks to Lifeguard Press.

The exterior of the planner features a hardbound cover, which makes this great for tossing into my bag on the go! It's also 9"x7" so it's not too big or heavy to carry. I also love the elastic band closure which helps to keep papers and such tucked inside. 

The interior of the planner features mylar tabs, an interior pocket, 2014-2015 yearly view, monthly view, and weekly views, celebrations pages, plenty of pages for notes, and golden metallic spiral binding. 

The monthly view (as seen above) gives ample space to keep track of important dates and view the month at a glance. I love that each month has a mylar tab which will keep the pages neat and tidy. The quotes to kick off each month are fun and inspiring - I particularly enjoy October's quote! Also, how gorgeous is that gold spiral binding?! 

There is also plenty of room in the weekly view to keep track of daily to-do lists, tasks, and other important reminders. I plan to use this space as a way to outline blog posts and blogging tasks!

The celebrations pages are so handy! My sorority Big and Little both recently got engaged so I'm already excited for their weddings in 2015! These pages will definitely come in handy for remembering anniversaries, weddings, showers, etc.

My all-time favorite part of the Kate Spade planner is the interior pocket! I'm always making lists and reminders so this pocket will definitely come in handy. Check out those gorgeous business cards, too! I created the business cards at and also bought matching stickers. I can't wait to hand those out at the Her Campus National Conference!

The Kate Spade Planners come in four different prints: Painterly Cheetah (featured), Black Stripe, Gold Dots, and Bella Bookshelf. You can also get them in a smaller size

What planner are you using this year, Darling? What do you think of the Kate Spade planners at Lifeguard Press?

With Love,

  7. That is such a gorgeous planner! If I didn't already have a Day Designer, I probably would be sold on this!

  8. I love the print you chose! This is the first year in a while I'm not getting a planner. I only really used it for homework and tests, but am better at keeping track of job stuff on my computer. One day I'll go back to paper!

  10. Would you reccomend this planner or the Lilly Pulitzer planner? I an torn between the two! Leaning more towards the KSNY though..

    1. I just can't seem to choose either! I had Lilly last year but I'm kind of ready for a change.


  11. I've been seeing these all over lately and love them! I can't make up my mind on which to get- I'm dying over that gold spiraling though!
