The end of the year can be a little frazzling with all the holiday events and tying up loose ends from the year. So much so, you might even forget to set intentions for next year or keep track of important dates coming up at the beginning of 2020. Not to worry, Ilavarasi Shenbagamoorthy, of Ila Designs, has just launched the perfect thing to get you organized for the new year or even gift to friend. She has created her 2020 desktop calendar themed around women empowerment and wellness; and believe us when we say you're going to want to order one of these. 

“Every year I design a calendar,” says Ila. “This is my third year. This year, The 2020 Desktop Calendar is something very close to my heart. The hardest critic people can face is themselves. Through this calendar, I wanted to remind all women that we all matter and should remember to learn to respect, love, and celebrate ourselves first.”

Ila has been passionate about design since she was young.  She spent summers sketching and learning design software at her father’s printing press in India.

You’ll find that no one design project is alike. Ila enjoys creating new things, and this year her calendar includes different illustrations and quotes to guide you through the months ahead. With a passionate eye for aesthetic and attention to detail, Ila Design products are not only charming, but also bring inspiration and hope to those who use them.

“Each month has a quote at the bottom of the calendar, and when they read it, I want them to love themselves, feel empowered and reflect,” Ila says warmly. “Every month also has a different type of woman illustration. I wanted to have an inclusive calendar. All the women in the calendar are faceless, making it every woman. I want everyone when they use this calendar to feel empowered and to celebrate themselves.”

You can buy Ila’s calendar for $18 from her Etsy shop at and connect with her brand @ila.designs.
