Paris Inspired May Month To View

Hi All!

How’s it going?

This morning I was up and ready very early, which meant I had time to organise all of my May Bill Transfers and other boring banking stuff.

After I did that, I decided to input all of my outgoings to my Filofax Month To View pages. Many of you will know that I find it useful to input everything into a month to view and then transfer over to my week to view so I have an overall picture as well as a close day to day knowledge. Especially where bills are concerned as it allows me to track what’s going out etc… I’m really terrible when it comes to finances so it keeps me on the straight and narrow.

Once I’d done that, I STILL had plenty of time so I got out the old Washi Tae and decorated my month to view, like so:

Many of you know, and Ill keep stressing: I find it so important to make something “attractive” to me… A friend of mine was asking me how I stay so organised, and I answered:

“because I’ve spend time and energy and money into something I love to take out and write in. Everything in my Filofax is there to help me and keep me out of trouble, everything in my Filofax is ‘friendly’. What I mean by that, is that my Filofax is not there to tell me what to do, it’s more of a gentle reminder of upcoming events so I can always stay in control. This little bit of control gives me peace of mind in my chaotic little world. But I need to have invested (time, energy, money) in it to get the best out of it.”

What makes you want to use your Filofax more?

Filofax Inspiration Comes From Everywhere: Including Underwear Shopping!

Good Day To You!

It’s amazing where inspiration strikes you, don’t you think? Magazines, work, a bar, a film… Underwear shopping…

On Friday I visited a beautiful little boutique style underwear shop that reminded me of all things French. And when I think of French Lingerie, the colours pink, black, white and champagne spring to mind. Beautiful shaped handwritten words, fluffy marabou and lace all create this wonderful vision in my mind.

So now, a couple of days later, it’s still in my mind.

I’m generally rather bohemian in my style etc, but there’s something pulling me towards the delicate pink French style. After all, my home is decorated in the shabby chic French style, why not incorporate it into a Filofax?

So out has come my old light pink Finabury, all ready to be dolled up in the French style. Here goes. Wish me luck, I will show you how it ends up once I’m done with it 🙂

Hugs!
