So, for the past three years (all the time I have been at University), I have used the 15 month diaries that are at Paperchase. They are perfect for student diaries and I love the fact that there is loads of room for to do lists and notes and general ramblings. However, this year, I don’t really like any of the designs and I decided that I needed something new and as one of my New Year Things was to get a little bit more organised, I thought it was time for a change. So, over the weekend – by complete fluke – I came across this lovely Filofax. It is leather and smells beautiful and it didn’t cost me anything as my lovely big sister bought it for me as a ‘well done for getting your job’ present. Big smile happy face.
Since getting it, I have been searching the web for some inspiration, as I don’t want it to be just a normal Filofax, and I love customising any sort of notebook/organiser. I love the idea of putting your own stamp on it and making it really personal. As a starting point, I am looking at making my own dividers with a little twist on them, so I will; of course keep you posted on their development. I think that I could become a little obsessed.
Gala Darling mentioned her love of her new Filofax a little while ago, but I really like some of her ideas that she put into it. Especially the idea of writing ‘I am so happy and grateful…’ on the notes sheets and then completing / writing on them whenever and whatever you want to. She claims that this idea really does work, which is extremely exciting! I might give it a go being as I’ve got nothing to lose! I also found some other websites and blogs completely devoted to Filofax, which, at the moment seems a little extreme, but I reckon I will be exactly the same within a week! Haha!
For now, I hope some of the images have really inspired you to get organised and helped you figure out how you would like yours to eventually look…. Enjoy!
Peace and love, Polly May xx
