I’ve been promoted! December our Assistant Manager left and I took the reigns assisting the Branch Manager. I’m all moved into my new little office area now and more and more work is coming my way… Par for the course!
However, I need a decent planner to keep me on track. So I’ve been searching for the perfect work planner, and as I need to remain true to my bohemian roots, a rustic looking wine Holborn Zip in A5 seems to match me perfectly.
Is there anyone out there willing to part with one?! Pretty please?
Give me a shout I’d be happy to hear from you 😉
Summer is ALMOST over here in the UK, and I’m going back to college in September! I’m decided I would bite the bullet and do a beginners course in French. I was taught German in High School, and was so upset as I wanted to learn French. Years later, here I am, about to go back to the classroom!
I am still currently in my Midori Travelers’ Notebook Passport size, but I miss the ability to move things around more freely. So I’ve been staring at Filofaxes longingly.
I cannot find the next Filofax to re-vamp my love – I think I’d like that elusive Personal Finchley in Antique Rose, or maybe a Personal Chameleon in Raspberry. Do you think I can find any of these anywhere?! I’ve scoured E-Bay, Amazon, the Facebook pages, Blog Posts… Ugh!
If any of you lovely people know anyone that would be willing to part with either… let me know! 🙂
Catch you later!
Yesterday, while lounging around on the facebook groups for my Anazona to miraculously “pop up”, I recall a lady looking for a personal Amazona in Almond… And I saw someone’s photograph saying they were having a big sort out. In the stash was an Almond Amazona.
Naturally, to me, that meant they were having a clear out etc… And being the excited person I was, mailed the lady searching for the Almond notifying her of my findings… But alas, no avail… The buyer was not selling at all.
We then got on to having a little moan about how our Amazonas were so elusive and I blurted out that I had been mailing everyone in the hope of my red Amazona. To my surprise, she said she had got it and was happy to sell to me.
Call me crazy but I had tears in my eyes and I was so happy… But the only thing that stopped my happiness fully was the fact she couldn’t find her ideal planner anywhere.
So I went on a mission, mailing bloggers that had featured Almond Amazonas in their blogs… Got a couple of “already sold on” responses… And then finally got a reply from a very regular lifestyle blogger who notified me she still had hers and was willing to sell!
I told my Almond Amazona seeking friend and got the two in touch… And now everyone has what they want!
All yesterday afternoon I spend making new dividers for the Amazona in prep for when she gets here:
I think I shall name her Marilyn 😉
She’s on her way to me shortly! Yippeeeeeee!
Now I’m just going to float into work :).
Have you had an interesting planner search?
I have been reduced to hunting the Facebook pages. Searching that model name over and over to the point of feeling crazed. I’ve even scouted old blog posts and Facebook planner page posts from about a year ago etc and messaged, yes, messaged, people asking if they still owned their beautiful red Personal Amazona that I am so jealous of them for owning… and seeing if they would ever part ways with the delectable model.
What’s happening to me?!
In other news, you may be aware I’m getting rid of the Deco! Yup, Daisy is moving on… she’s here if you fancy a peek:
Daisy is Moving – get a chance to own her HERE
Originally she was up for offers on the Facebook pages but after the allotted time passed and she had no interest…. poof! She’s now at Auction. Poor thing 😉
ALSO! The Purple Personal Malden finishes on Tuesday – so don’t miss out on a chance to own!
You can find the Purple Malden HERE
In personal news, apart from becoming a complete brand snob and coveting a red/oxblood Mulberry Bayswater, I am gearing up for my upcoming break in the next couple of weeks to CORNWALL! We are staying in a super duper posh hotel in Newquay and I can barely wait. I know this is going to sound bizarre, but anyone who lives inland will completely agree with me here – I cannot wait to see the sea. No idea why because it terrifies me – but there’s something about the sea that pulls me… I love it.
Anyway, I think that’s enough from me! How are you getting on?
Hello All 🙂
This evening I got back home from a late Sales Meeting at 7pm and all I wanted to do was crash. So I flopped on my favourite sofa and popped one of my favourite TV Series – The Secret Diary of a Call Girl. I know it’s quite an old series now but I still love re-watching Belle’s “Glamorous” life. Comparing to mine, it’s certainly full of glamour and drama and lots of money 😉 I’m a female – I’m allowed to indulge!
Most of all though, I love how Belle uses a Filofax to schedule appointments with her Clients and to write notes regarding her Clients preferences… ahem.
In Series 1, we see Belle using what looks like a Pocket size Ostrich Buttercup (that’s what it looks like to me – correct me if I’m wrong!)
However.. into Series 2… we see this beauty:
The Personal Amazona in Red. And I want one… really really badly. I know, I just got me a Temperley Guinea… and it’s gorgeous – beyond gorgeous. And I love it very much… I’m just really liking the look of the Personal Red Amazona.
So… does anyone know of anyone that is selling one? I’m checking the Selling Sites on Facebook and the Adspot on Philofaxy… to no avail 😦
People of the Filofax Community – help!
