Brush Dance 2013 A Fearless Woman date book: Review and Giveaway!

Many thanks to Brush Dance for sending me this beautiful planner as a sample to review and for sponsoring this giveaway! Read on to find out how you can win this planner!
The A Fearless Woman Date Book is A5 size with a week per page and month calendars, TABS (yay tabs!), an elastic closure, hard cover and more.

At the beginning of the book there is a pocket to hold papers, tickets, receipts etc.  Every month has beautiful art and inspirational sayings (click on photos for larger views):
The monthly calendars have holidays printed on the days and space below for notes. The weekly pages have big open day spaces with holidays and moon phases printed in the day spaces.
The month calendars are tabbed, and embedded in the weeks:
The weekly pages start on the first day of the month:
and end on the last day of the month:
Then there are several pages for notes before the next tabbed month:
After the calendar pages there is a tabbed Addresses section:


**Edited to add: I just wanted to say, the more I look through this planner and the pocket one in the other giveaway, the more I adore them.  The beautiful artwork and inspirational quotes give the planners a very uplifting, positive vibe that's very addictive. Loads of little details like colors on the weekly and monthly pages; monthly gemstones, flowers and themes; lighthearted reminders like Go Barefoot Day, and more nice touches give these planners personality and charisma! I really really love them.  Well done Brush Dance for making these wonderful, happy planners!

    2. Actually, yes, our staff is 80% female and all of our designers are women. We design products for "people like us." (Deleted the previous reply to repair a typo.)

    1. Christine, you all definitely should be proud of your planners! They are beautiful, high quality and uplifting to use. I hadn't seen your planners in person until you sent me these, and now I'm a huge fan!!

  11. Looks interesting. I love tabs and hate when they are missing. I have been writing out what I like and don't like about my current planning 'situation' as things are about to change next month. I am trying to figure out what planner to use and this might work.

    I like the idea that each month is self-contained.

  13. Love the Fearless Woman Datebook! (Sunflowers are my favorite flower and I love the empowering messages!) Also love the 2 page spread showing a month at a glance and week at a glance--great idea!!! It looks like there will be plenty of space to write for all of us super-busy women.

    1. You SHOULD be excited about the tabs because they are fabulous, AND the genius designers made the cover edges go past the tab edges to protect them so the tabs won't get bent and torn up. Brilliant!

  16. Oh I really enjoyed this Review! The Layout is beautiful. In- and outside.
    But what I liked most about it is the Front "she honors and celebrates who she is becoming"
    !!!
    I know exactly what i would use it for :)

  17. It's beautiful, and I'm glad I "stumbled" across your blog, and saw the pictures of it! Hello.

  18. Always enjoy looking and trying out new formats especially on paper that is colorful.

  19. Looks great! Love a planner to be inspiring as well as functional.

  20. That's so gorgeous! And actually starting on the first of the month and ending on the last day - perfect.

  21. I -love- this planner. A Fearless Woman has been my carry-around planner for the past two years and it will be my planner in 2013 whether I win or not. I am more than willing to carry this decently-sized book around with me everyday instead of using the calendar functions in my cell phone because it is that wonderful.

    Now if Brush Dance did a Fearless Woman planner app for Android, I'd be all in on that. Until that happens.... vive le papier!

  23. This planner reminds me of my favourite (and as soon as I started to really begin using it discontinued) Far Side desk planner, which had a similar layout
    These planners just scream out "Use me, use me"

  24. LOVE this planner - it looks absolutely stunning (which is always a bonus incentive to actually use it so win-win!)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would love to bring this planners into serious meetings and watching the faces of those reading the "A Fearless Woman .. she waits for no one" text on the front :) Please count me in for the win ;)
