my everyday planner + discount code!

One of the most frequent questions I get is where on earth my planner is from. If you haven’t been introduced to Sweet Caroline Designs, y’all, you’re in for quite the treat!

I love a large, clean, organized planner. Even though they can be so cute, I don’t need itemized lists, quotes, or any “extras.” Over time, I’ve learned those additions can quickly overwhelm when looking at a busy week!

That’s why I became an instant fan when I came across the large Sweet Caroline Designs 17 month planner. (There’s also a smaller size if you don’t carry a Mary Poppins bag like I do!)

The size is perfect for all of my checklists, notes and lists. The layout is clean and simple. The note pages are plentiful. And perhaps best of all, the monthly designs are so adorable, cheerful and southern. Honestly, what’s not to love?!

Whenever I use it, it puts a smile on my face. Any way to add a bit of joy into my day is an automatic win – this planner does just that!

So scroll below to see the planner I picked out for this year, along with an amazing discount code just for Lonestar Southern followers!

Let’s take a look inside, shall we?! Here are a few of my favorite features. Not pictured is the pocket attached to the inside cover. I put so many pamphlets, business cards and receipts in there!

monthly view // weekly view


Each month is equipped with one full calendar, and then weekly segments divided into two pages. I love how clean and easy to navigate it is. I draw a line through each day on the monthly overview, and draw my own checkboxes to cross off as I complete daily tasks.


favorite months


Whenever I get a new Sweet Caroline Designs planner, I immediately flip through the monthly art. Each of the designs is adorable. (My favorite, the blue chinoiserie collage, is on my birthday month. Yippee!) Once I move on to a new planner, I cut these out and use them on bulletin boards and such.


sticker page


Oh yes I DID just say sticker page! And are these not to die for?! The only problem is they’re so cute that I hate to actually use them! Goal for this next month… actually use some stickers! :)

I’m head over heels for the Sweet Caroline Designs planner, and am so happy to share this little piece of my day with you! That’s not the only thing I’m sharing today… how does a DISCOUNT CODE and GIVEAWAY sound?!

    Years ago I was inspired by one of your Lilly Pulitzer planner walkthrough videos and loved using her planners until I had the opportunity to meet Emily Ley. I decided to try her Signature Weekly Simplified Planner. I have finally found planner peace. In addition to the clean and simple interior pages … that lay flat because of the book binding … the quality of the paper she uses is amazing. No bleed through and no shadowing no matter which pens I use. Your Sweet Caroline Designs Planner is beautiful and I would consider it but now that I’m out of the corporate meeting madness, and only see clients a few times each month, I love having a smaller planner. Its the perfect size to carry in any purse or tote I own. And … her covers are gorgeous. I just received my 2020 calendar year planner in the Navy Blooms design. I’m in love!!

    Rifle Paper Co. Planners are my go-to since graduating college and working in the real world! In college, I absolutely loved the Lily Pulitzer Planners.

    A touch of southern charm adds a delightful element to the planner, making it visually appealing and uplifting. The sound of house of hazards is also great. It fits the game’s context and helps me feel more nervous when playing.
