I'm British, So Filofax

Adventures in Trying to Organize My Life

Pink. Pink. Can’t get enough Pink!

4 Comments

I have been neglecting my blog and searching endlessly for inspiration to do something different with my Filo. I love all my Filofaxes. I also get complacent… so changing between different versions keeps me interested and reminds me to look at it often. I feel like I’ve found the end of Pinterest though… possibly the end of the internet. It has been a while since I saw something and had an AH-HA THAT’S AN AMAZING IDEA moment and ran home to recreate it myself. Maybe I am just going through an adjustment period but I definitely miss the idealism I had back in December when everything was new and exciting and I didn’t have enough time in the day to work on the amazing ideas I had for my Filo.

It really hit home today when I stopped by Sam Flax in Atlanta to see if they had any 2015 vertical week on 2 pages for my A5 and the employee who helped me just happened to be the one I spoke with when I drove about an hour to a place outside Orlando just to pick up a new Filofax back in Decemeber. He remembered me as being the Filofax lady. Haha. Turns out his family owns Sam Flax and he relocated up to Atlanta. What a small small world…

So while I wait for inspiration to hit me like a ton of bricks I figured I would share my current set up. I am using my pink patent Filofax Domino A5. I venture away to others… Saffiano…. Finsbury… but I always come back to the Domino, my first love, it seems… so without further ado…

Here she is, in all her glory! I love the bright pink. So much so I use one for my work Filo also. The color is just so bright and cheerful!!! The only problem I have noticed is I want everything to be matchy matchy so I’ve become obsessed with making everything pink themed on the inside. Somewhat overkill but I am enjoying so far…

The dividers were made from a scrapbook collection by Authentique which I purchased at Hobby Lobby. Of course, I had to throw some Alice and Wonderland in there. 🙂

Here is my homemade dashboard with some pictures of family and friends… and a reminder to keep my muchness. Thank you Mad Hatter!

I have a homemade planner charm made from an Alice and Wonderland charm I acquired at Disney World when I went this past spring break and a ‘Drink Me’ charm I found in the jewelry making section at Hobby Lobby in a fairy tale collection of charms that were so cute it was hard not to purchase them all!

In an attempt to make up for the lack of pocket space on the inside cover, I have put my post its in a zip folder I had sitting around and keep that tucked in the big pocket. Problem solved!

I am using Month of two page inserts I had from my old Domino A5 and a Project Life card to mark the current month.

Desperate I pretty exhaustive search, I have been unable to find the week on 2 pages that are vertical so I am working with the vertical layout currently. This is the part where I struggle with having a pink planner and realize why I went with Black as my first planner… I want everything to match (cough*OCD*cough) and its hard to decorate the pages with just pink. Don’t get me wrong, I have separated all my pink and pink related washi tapes in to a separate container and pulled out any pink stickers, post its, and note pages I have and put them aside… but I am not sure I have the endurance to go all the way and decorate the entire thing with pink only accessories. Especially knowing I have a Filofax Original in Nude coming home with my Mum from England…

On the plus side, the pink paper finally made sense… 🙂
 

I have a goal tracker in place to monitor sleep (I have terrible sleep patterns), journaling, blogging, etc.

      

And I am also doing a no spend challenge for July! It is wishful thinking but I have to start somewhere!

Finally, this is July’s instagram challenge which I am hoping will be more motivation to be creative. This one if from @Paperheartofgold and so far, ahem day 2, I have posted each challenge!!! I celebrate small wins. 😛

So all in all, I am thoroughly enjoying my pink A5!

I have already started a pinterest board for gold/cream, black, and white themes and purchased gold pens for the Nude Original though so, as is always the case, I am sure change will be coming soon!

XOXO

I have recently fully admitted I love hearing myself talk. This fact probably points to why I picked the career I did. :) It may sound self-consumed but, hey, at least I can admit it! So what does a person who feels they may have some important things to share with the world do... Start a blog of course. So here we are.

  1. For some vertical layouts, look into Planner Fun. Becky’s work is wonderfully clean, and she’ll graciously make tweaks to make it perfectly yours. Love the verticals she modified for me.
