Where To Turn When You've Officially Outgrown The Lilly Pulitzer Agenda

Say goodbye to ordinary planners and hello to schedulers that fit you.

Where To Turn When You've Officially Outgrown The Lilly Pulitzer Agenda

It's that time of year. Your Lilly Pulitzer Agenda is nearing its end and you now have to choose a new planner that may or may not determine the likelihood that you survive another year. Dramatic? Maybe. But for some, having the right planner is key to functioning properly as an "adult." You could stick with what you know, just pick a different Lilly print for the 2015-16 academic year or you could mix things up and try something new. If the latter option appeals to you, read on! There are plenty of options brought to you by a population of neat freaks who want to add order to your life.

1. The Witty: BAN.DO 17-month Classic Agenda

While this planner doesn't brag huge amounts of writing space, it's definitely the cutest of the group. Filled to the brim with whimsical pictures, stickers, and quotes, this little agenda might keep you checking your schedule more regularly than usual. The designers even incorporated every random holiday so now you'll always know when National Donut Day is happening and you'll never miss out on National Bubble Bath Day (January 8th if you're curious).

Buy it on Amazon for $18.

2. The Detail Oriented: Moleskine Colour a Month Daily Planner

This planner is perfect for anyone who needs to write down everything and anything: hair appointments, assignment due dates, haikus about coffee, whatever. You get 12 Moleskine notebooks, one for every month. Each day of the month is allotted two pages in the book so there's plenty of room for list-making, creative brainstorming, journaling, and anything else your little heart desires. It's also just great to get a new colored booklet each month. Something about the promise of a fresh start is always valuable.

3. The Control Freak: Large Basic Planner

Sounds super boring, right? Right. It's simple and basic. So why am I introducing you to it? Because "dateless schedulers" are important. When you purchase them, they're completely blank except for empty calendar templates, weekly note space, and daily time blocks. It's an outline that allows you to design your own method of organization. Start on any month/week of the year. Color code important dates. Add pictures and stickers and washi tape. Take control and order your life in whatever way works best for you. We all think differently so how could a cookie cutter planner cater to your very specific needs? It probably can't, but this might.

4. The Dreamer: Passion Planner

This is possibly the most practical planner I have ever seen. Not only does it set up a daily time chart where you can fill in appointments and deadlines, it has plenty of space on each weekly page for to-do lists and other journaling. But wait. There's more. It helps you find your passions and reach goals. People who write down their goals are statistically more likely to reach them, and this planner helps guide you to do just that. Each month it gives you space to reflect on how your goals have progressed. It's just a quick check-in that reminds you to stay focused so that your dreams can come true.

Buy it on Amazon for $30.

5. The Preppy: Kate Spade 12-month Agenda

So you loved the layout of the Lilly Pulitzer Agenda. You want something similar, but with a new design. Look no further. The Kate Spade Agenda is set up almost exactly the same way with monthly and weekly calendar views. It just has the added bonus of Kate Spade's sparkle and class so you're sure to receive plenty of compliments at Chapter this year.

Buy it on Amazon for $36.

Now go forth and be more productive and organized then ever before. Just remember, the perfect planner won't change your habits or increase your motivation. It's on you to enact those changes. Good Luck.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
