My Agenda for 2016-2017? Lilly Pulitzer, Always

In high school, I honestly couldn't remember what type of agenda I had. Probably something huge and from Walmart/Target. Back in the day, I didn't need/want it to be pretty/preppy/colorful, all I cared about was that it was big enough that I could write a ton of crap in it (I always had something to do/a ton of homework - shoutout to the all girls, private catholic high school). However, once I went to college and joined a sorority, that all changed. I began to think about every last detail of my school books and even my agenda; I was officially a Lilly Pulitzer agenda convert

Throughout college, I used the medium Lilly planners and I loved them. I was going to switch at some point, but I always found that I used a mixture of my computer stickies and my planner to keep a running list of things I needed to do/homework, and my calendar to keep up with tests/tasks. While that's kept up with my personal life after college, for the most part, I took a look at my planner and really thought it through this year. 

This year, I looked at the patterns and decided on one I loved: the agenda in Ocean Jewels. Apparently, I read too quickly through because I didn't see that it was a large agenda, instead of the medium agenda that I thought I was getting. Here I am, thinking I may order down to the small because I don't have as much going on anymore, and I order a large. Granted, if I would have ordered a medium, like I thought I was, I would have ordered the Going Coastal agenda, because look how freaking cute it is. 

Honestly, when I got it in I was shocked. I swore I was getting a medium, not large, agenda. I sat on my bed for a little bit and thought it out. Should I keep it? Should I send it back? I thought about it, and then complained about my idiocy on twitter (like you do) and my friend Kelsey really swayed me when she said that she adored the large agenda. I figured I could give it a shot and if I really hate it, I'll get rid of it. Honestly, the only thing I've really done with it is write in the important dates from my calendar (I transferred things like birthdays/anniversaries), but so far I love it. 

I didn't really think that I would need such a big calendar, but after using it for a little bit, I've started to fall in love with it. The only thing that I can think that I don't like is that instead of the months tab in the front, they have an art tab. It's not such a big deal because the large agenda does provide more space to write everything down, but in my medium agenda I was using the front part for my blog/youtube information. So once I had written a post/scheduled a video I would write it down there to see how much I had done/what else I needed to plan out. It's not a big deal, because I just created a calendar on my iCal to do the same thing. All in all, I love the large planner. It gives me a lot of space and nothing feels too crammed or like I need to write incredibly tiny to make everything fit.
