Happy Friday, glitter girls!

Remember how good it felt to shop for school supplies at the beginning of the school year? New notebooks, binders, pens, markers…everything is crisp and new, full of possibility. “Seventh grade is going to be the BEST. YEAR. EVER.”

J and I are well past the age of looking for the perfect unicorn Trapper Keeper. Instead, we experience the school-supplies high in December when we buy our calendars and planners for the next year. All those blank pages get us excited for the coming year. What will we do? Where will we go? Eeeek! 2013 is going to be the BEST. YEAR. EVER.

Today’s Friday Five: our top five calendar picks.

Kate Spade 2013 Planner
i’ve used a Kate Spade planner for ten years. gorgeous illustrations, witty text. my fave.
Lemonade Paperie Calendar 2013
we’re obsessed with this printable mini-calendar ($7!!!) by Lemonade Paperie. the company will also print it for you–AND ADD GLITTER–for a small up-charge. SOLD, duh.
Ines De La Fressange Parisian Chic Calendar
oh, how we idolize Ines de la Fressange. this adorable “Parisian Chic” weekly planner featuring her drawings (and fashion advice!) is as close as we will ever get to her.
Paper Source 2013 Wall Art Calendar
if you’re into wall calendars, you can’t beat the graphic design of this one by Paper Source. a handy list of ideas for reusing the pages is included.
Raspberry Kate Desk Calendar
you can’t write on it, but we love this pretty desk calendar from Waiting on Martha. like something Aerin Lauder would use, no?
