the power of a planner

The role that a planner plays in a city girl's life is very very important. It's a guide to her everyday schedule--meetings, social gatherings, dates, etc.

But there are actually several types of city girls so I think, the kind of planner each city girl must use should depend on her job and personality. I think, for someone who is very much inclined to fashion and the arts such as models, photographers, makeup artists, fashion designers, magazine editors, etc., the Belle de Jour planner is a good choice.
However, it's quite bulky, so a nice alternative is the Cosmopolitan Date Book. I actually got one for me. And look, it looks so overused already since I use it all the time. It is where I put schedule of go-sees, photo shoots, fashion shows, school events, friends' parties, and other fun events. What's also nice about this planner is it has a lot that you can read about like some personality readings per zodiac sign, some quotations, and trivia too.

For someone who is much more serious or much of a corporate woman, the Starbucks planner is good, or should I say, better than the very bulky planners available at the bookstores. It is simpler and more formal-looking. It's a plus for the coffee lovers out there since it contains some coffee stories as well. I actually have one too. But what I put here are schedules of meetings, job interviews, social gatherings, and other formal events.

So, I've got 2 planner--one for the 'kikay' side of me, and one for the 'career woman' side of me. haha! But actually, it's really hard maintaining two planners...so sometimes, i just put everything on my Cosmo...and my Starbucks planner looks a bit like a mini diary now. haha!

Anyway, Powerbooks has a nice planner too. And you can also use the planner features of your cellphones. However, they are not that reliable because once they get stolen, everything's lost too. You'll even lose your mind. haha!

Most important rule: DO NOT LOSE YOUR PLANNER...unless you want a stalker! hahaha!=))
