Welcome to my little world- I am thrilled that you are here. My most sincere hope is that this little blog is a source of laughter, inspiration and some seriously fabulous food (even if it is vegan!). Is it possible to maintain a vegetarian lifestyle below the Mason Dixon line? Come along with me and find out as I pound the pavement, travel and eat my way through life. Cheers!

Call me old fashioned but I am just a girl who loves her planner. No matter how I try, I simply cannot get into using the calender feature on my blackberry or organizer on my computer. I am a hand held planner kind of girl. Wherever I go, my planner is sure to follow. For the past few years, I have been quite into Kate Spade's lightweight planner, I like the pictures, the spaces work well for me and the size is perfect. For me, it is so much more than a date keeper, it is where I keep track of the details of life, write inspirational quotes and keep birthday information. It is completely full of yellow post-it notes and covered in highlighter marks. I like to use a cheerful polka dot ribbon to mark my week, it makes me smile.







I wish you a delightfully organized day!

I'm with you. I want a planner I can draw little notes in, put a sticker here and there and tie the whole thing up with some ribbon or a nice coloured band.

Outlook Calendars be banned!

Confession, I am just like you. I have had filofax and every fancy planner, but the one I like best is a slim thrifty spiral one, with a plastic coated front...I tie it too... I love it best.
I just cannot make the switch to on-line planning.
Glad to know I am not alone.

same here too, it's the tangible factor, as much as I love Outlook, I have to have a schedule that I'm able to hold and touch- I've got the kate spade one you featured above!

our lives would just fall apart w/o planners!

Oh, I am absolutely with you, the computer calendar does not work for me at all.....and I am a Post-It fan too!

PS Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog today, I really appreciate it.

A lady after my own heart.. I've had a palm pilot, I currently have an iPhone and neither of those fancy shmancy technological diddies house ANY of my plans, appointments or crazy OCD lists! I just can't get into it! I much prefer the post its, the scribbles and the twelve dollar planner that I've been faithful to for years!

Joyce said...

I'm with you, I too love my planner that I can write in, touch and doodle in. Have a golden day~ xoxo

You are so right!! I love love love my Blackberry and am absolutely addicted to it, but not for calendar use. I have had my Kate Spade planner for at least a decade now, or so it seems. I need to write and sketch , I just love it!
Have a nice day

Jaime said...

I'm an old fashioned paper planner too...I have a red/pink KS that I adore :)

I do use my BB and work calendar as well, but the paper planner works best for me.

Really nothing better than a hand written planner to stay on top of things!

JMW said...

Yes, I like the look and feel of a good leather-bound planner. Although, with my Blackberry and Outlook calendar at work, I tend to use those so much more often, sad to say.

EntertainingMom said...

I need my paper! I love my scribbles and doodles and to cross out and write over and on top of and to cram all my agendas into these tiny little spaces! I also like to keep my planners and calenders. It's so fun to look back at them. They're like written photo albums, know what I mean?

Keri said...

i LOVE the kate spade planners. i love everything kate spade. i actually used to work at one of the retail stores and enjoyed it very much.

if i don't have my planner, i'm totally lost!

Helen Zuo said...

I am exactly like you! I have a gorgeous black planner from Barnes and Noble that looks exactly like the second Kate Spade picture you have, except without the initial. Can't live without it!

the NEO-traditionalist said...

So glad I stumbled upon your site!!! I'm definitely a planner girl too---last year was Kate Spade (the ad you used is an all time fav by the way) and this year I snatched up a fun orange and pink Coach planner from the outlet. Never been much of a Coach fan, but it's has a fabulous sixties print that I couldn't resist... Anyway, I get you.

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

I'm exactly like you. I love pen and paper too much. My hubby always tries to get me to use palm pilots, etc and I never end up doing it. There is just something about holding my day planner that makes me feel better.

Crystal @ Plush Palate said...

Once I got my iPhone, I finally switch over to online planning. I could never do it before then, so I feel ya ;)

Kassie said...

I'm just the same! I actually did a post about my planner a little bit ago lol.

Basil Becky said...

I love my planner....it holds all the important
details of my life. No dings to remind you of things...you just have to remember to read!

I'm another Blackberry user that needs my planner. I'm a fan of the "MomAgenda" (www.momagenda.com). They offer it in lots of fun colors and a few prints (my current one is orange!). Since they are for Moms the calendar follows a school year (August to the following August or longer). It comes with inspirational quotes for each month and each week!

Arianna Belle said...

I have the 09 Kate Spade planner you pictured above and I absolutely love it! I don't know what I'd do without it!

Have a great weekend!

style chronicle said...

I have to admit, this year I switched over from my paper planner to my iphone and the transition thus far has been smooth. In the chaos of getting four children out the door, I often left my planner behind but I always have my phone so it works for me!

I used to use the Mom Agenda, which is good for those with busy little ones...

The Antiques Diva™ said...

You're a hostess after my diva heart... I too can't get use to my online calendar and have taken to drawing these elaborate calendars in my note book that have friends and family trying to determine if I'm a creative genius or absolutely nuts!!

Susan Terese said...

i'm the same way and use a kate spade one as well!!

Kate said...

I have always loved having a planner. I got the Lilly planner for 2010!
