Filofax Fans: my apologies!

It’s been almost a month since I blogged anything.

Well, life got crazy busy with all the Christmas shopping and work and Christmas and my dear friend being over from Germany for the holidays etc… Suddenly it’s almost new year and I feel I should be still in November somewhere. Where has the time gone?

Anyway, excuses aside, I’ve felt so guilty on not updating my blog recently I feel the need to apologise. I’m so very, very sorry.

What do I need to update you with?

Erm, I actually have a confession. I haven’t been nearly as organised as I should have been by now. In fact, planning has taken a back seat over the holidays as I’ve been pushed from pillar to post from party to dinner and back again. But anyway: planner peeps best look away for my next sentence may disgrace me in your eyes:

I haven’t yet got my 2014 diary.

I know, I know, I know! Most people have been organising their 2014 diary since October: and so did I…

But it looks like that may have fallen through.

So I keep promising I will print the Philofaxy CC inspired Week on 2 Pages (they are so customisable, I love the Philofaxy/My Life All On One Page diary printables – sorry I can’t really link anything from my iPhone guys, apologies) and I will get to it eventually…!

Apart from that, I’ve fallen in love with the Smashbook Range. I purchased the RetroStyle book and about £35 worth of scrapbook accessories to start me off. Anyone who knows me, knows I am a serious sucker of anything that looks remotely 1970’s bohemian/gypsy style, which also extends to my love of 70’s style unsaturated photographs.

I wanted to find myself a real poloroid SX-70 camera but I don’t think the paper is very popular these days, with it being so old and all etc…

Anyway, my point is, one of my resolutions was to take more photographs with my little Lumia I purchased earlier this year to go to Tenerife. It’s just a point and shoot but I’m sure with the amazing editing apps there are for photos these days I can get the look I love so much. I’m going to smash it all in my Smashbook and keep a record of all the 2014 fun times 🙂

That’s the plan, anyway.

Need to get a diary sorted before I plan that though…!

How’s your Christmas been? How about any NY Resolutions this year?


Duel Planner User Or 1 Life, 1 Filofax User

Hi everyone!

A few days ago my bestie and Filofax user Carrie asked me the question:

How Would You Use 2 Filofaxes?

It’s a question I’ve often wondered myself. So many have their At Home Planner and a Portable Planner. I often wonder if the duplicating ever annoys them! I mean, surely all they need to do is reference the portable as the information is all there…

But then I got to thinking.

When I was doing my Repping, I could have done with a separate Filo. I used a day on 1 page but I found that times only went from 8am to 8pm. What about after that? Or before that? Sure it was great for my repping, but not for my own life.

Perhaps setting up one for work: day per page with appointment times, a reports section, a business cards and contacts section, a reference section…

Then having one as I have now, for my to do and events diary week on 2 pages, month to view, goals, personal contacts, passwords etc.

That maybe would have worked better. I’m a real believer in Filofax Monogamy haha, so I’d have loved one more than the other and disliked to use one!

Tell me: are you a Filofax Bigamist or Filofax Monogamist!?

How do you use yours?

Much love
