HOW I STAY ORGANIZED : MY SMYTHSON SOHO DIARY .

I am a busy woman.

Always on the go… work, home, 3 dogs and 100.000 activities and things I have or I want absolutely to do!

I seriously think my days should have at least 48 hours!

I’m happy, I love and enjoy every moment what I do, because all is done with passion and with my heart.

But I have to be organized, absolutely! There are lot of things such as appointments, dates, etc. that I simply can’t miss.

That’s why for me a planner is a lifesaver.

I can’t live without!

I prefer writing on paper than for example using my smatphone or pc.

Once I wrote something on paper I feel like is half done or that I’ll do it for sure and that I can’t miss it!

This year I’m using this agenda by Smythson : the Soho Diary.

Is made of textured leather outside.

Smythson of Bond Street is an English Company, they have lot of planners to choose from!

Definitely a hight quality brand and quite on the pricey side, it’s true.

But I wanted my agenda to be beautiful for my eyes and functional for my needs, I thought that ” it’s an expense I do once a year “, so… why not?!

I fell in love with this one because:

  • The color black of course… black is my happy color!
  • Is lightweight, thanks to the Smythson’s “featherweight” paper
  • The size : W14 x H19 cm / W5.5 x H7.5″, fits perfectly in my everyday bag
  • Week on one page view and half agenda is for notes, perfect for writing appointments and to do lists
  • The edges are gold, how pretty!
  • Goes from November 2016 to January 2018
  • There is a silk pocket at the end for loose papers or documents

So yes, my agenda is my everyday trusty companion, the place where I wrote almost all, my second memory (often my first ahah!), my mind relief!

xoxo AgentChiara 😎

    These do look like some amazing planners and agendas. I know that I need to find some good ones that I enjoy working with if I am going to be better organized.

      Finding one who suits your needs is important, you’ll enjoy it more and will be more useful!

    Omg.. so pretty! I am one that prefers paper to phone too. Old fashioned I guess. I don’t need another reason to be glued to my phone. Plus, planners just look.. productive..

      so true, I agree with you!

    I can’t live without a planner either. I often have two or three going though, just to keep myself organised.

      So true, seems they have lot of secrets inside!

    This is such a sleek and beautiful looking planner! I mostly use my iPhone calendar app to note down things that I have to do, out of convenience I guess.
    But yeah the experience of using a planner versus a phone is totally different!

    • Agentszerozerosetter
      14 March 2017 / 16:12

      I agree, it’s different! You can write definitely more in a planner, add post it or documents…more fun 🙂

    Its a good looking planner. I could make a ton of list in that one and the gold embossing is a nice touch.

      I think the same, sometimes I can’t stop watching at mine!

  11. 14 March 2017 / 12:08

    How lovely! I have a HUGE planner. I love it, but it isn’t easy to carry around with me on a daily basis.

    • Agentszerozerosetter
      14 March 2017 / 16:06

      I love big planners too, you can write so much in them! But it’s true, they are not easy to carry, that’s why I went for a smaller one!

      So simple but cute at the meantime, I just love it!

  14. 14 March 2017 / 16:56

    I love diaries and planners! I have literally 10 of them, one for practically everything. I love writing everything down rather than using my phone. I love your diary. It’s so simple and classy.

      I agree, it’s so much better writing on paper!

  15. 14 March 2017 / 17:20

    Such a very elegant planner. I can’t believe it can fit in a small shoulder bag. Love it!

    • Agentszerozerosetter
      14 March 2017 / 18:43

      Yes, it seems made to fit in this bag!

    So much to do and so little time. I bought this adorable planner for the new year but find myself using my phone calendar a lot more.

    Oh I could always be a bit more organized. I am going to have to check into one of these.

    • Agentszerozerosetter
      20 March 2017 / 20:53

      Yes it’s the right size, not too big and not too small!

  22. 17 March 2017 / 6:19

    I love your planner. Lol, I often say the same thing, “I wish there were 48 hours in a day”. I usually write down stuff first too. Feel comforted by the fact that I have it jotted down at least. I love stationary too especially lead pencils. Great looking thing you got there😊

    • Agentszerozerosetter
      20 March 2017 / 20:48

      Thank you, we think the same ahah!
