From The Desk Of Alicia – Happy 2014!!!

Happy New Year!  (a couple days later).  In the last couple of weeks I’ve been enjoying the holidays, a trip back east, my family, my friends, and some much needed time off!  A lot of that was spent unplugged and enjoying the moment and not worrying about capturing it electronically.  2014 is shaping up to be a big year…  not only is it the 2nd year anniversary here on the blog but I have a new nephew on the way, my niece is graduating high school and I have a wedding to plan!  I only half-heartedly make resolutions but this year with all this going on my resolution is to be more organized/on time/on top of things/etc.   I think the first step in making this happen is finding a really good planner to keep me organized… one that’s equally as chic and fun as it is functional.  Here are a few I’m looking at…

Topping the wish list, Kate Spade offerings:

Kate Spade Spiral 2014 Agendas

The refillable agenda is really what I think I need.  Something with pockets and lots of options.  However its pink and $168 (neither are my favorite).

On the more affordable level Etsy has some great options:

2014 Planner on Etsy

Since I’m a sucker for fun office supplies these fun designs have me smitten:

The refillable options are what I’m searching for but I want something more fun in design, but this classic leather one from Coach has the functionality:

Since I’m not very good at this organization thing, I’m definitely open to suggestions.  Do you use a day planner you love?  Do you have a better suggestion?  Where’s the best place to shop for planners?  Searching Pinterest I’ve seen a ton of printable options, but what’s the best way to bind them/use them?  Leave a comment and help licia!

As for the rest of this organization thing for the year the biggies I want to tackle are my closet, my shoes, my jewelry, my office (both home and work) and my paper trails (documents/warranties/manuals/receipts/etc).  This will involve some pinspiration and diy techniques that I most certainly will be sharing here on word of alicia.

Here's to 2014!!

Here’s to 2014!!

Cheer’s to a happy and healthy 2014!

  1. Now that I have a family, we’ve graduated to using a giant wall calendar so everything fits in one square and everyone knows what’s going on. Even when I was in school I found the monthly planner more helpful than a day planner.
