My Raspberry Filofax
Just had to share my new love... this is my Personal sized Raspberry Pink Filofax that I treated myself to on yesterday's shopping trip. I spent a while in WHSmiths looking at all the different varieties and I'd googled a hundred reviews and opinions on Filofax organisers and found some great blog posts.
I decided a 'Personal' was just the right size for me, I prefer to have space to write and I always carry a huge bag anyway so this is easy to just chuck straight in.
My mum has always been a Filofax appreciator - she's currently using a Mini which is perfect for her and her wee hand bags but I need something sturdier.
I had some WHSmiths vouchers from my Sixth Form. I did pretty well in my A Levels and my college were kind enough to give me 2 gift cards to spend in store as a congratulations. This was at least a year ago! I just couldn't decide what to buy myself. There are lots of Photography books I'd love to own (and I still have some money left) but I took the plunge after wanting a 'proper organiser' for so long.
Recently I realised I was scribbling down blog ideas and plans on bits of paper here there and everywhere. Now I can keep on top of what I want to blog about and when I can find time to write my posts/publish them.
Compulsive list-maker and note-taker heaven!
Filofax's can reach the dizzy price heights of £70 and beyond. I thought that was a bit insane. So I found this exact one (a faux leather) for just £27. Perfect! The clasp is so strong it should last me forever and there is even room for two pens, credit sized cards and a notepad at the back.
There are loads of fun inserts, gadgets, accessories that you can get to slot inside - but I might save those for when I've had mine a little longer.
As long as it gets me through 3 years of University I will be happy, and even happier to show it off!
