If you follow me on Instagram, you've no doubt seen my new Filofax Pocket Raspberry Finsbury. If you haven't, be prepared for the beauty that is about to come your way. I recently bought this from Staples UK where it was retailing in store at £49.99. Online at Staples, for the exact same product, it was retailing at £14.99. When I went into store I told them this, much to the assistants disbelief. He checked and then did have to price match for me. I left the store feeling amazing, because this bargain was out of this world!
In real life, it's such a beautiful colour and it feels gorgeous. I didn't really think that I'd love a Finsbury so much but out of all the Filo's I've set up and had, this one is my favourite so far! How strange is that!
At first I wasn't really sure what dividers I was going to use because I didn't have any papers which matched this colour. Then I spotted this shiny and craft paper that you can see in the photo, and the purple in there went so well. It was perfect. The gold looked really nice with the planner too, so I decided I was going to use gold. The next thing I decided was that the colour of the planner wasn't wholly purple, there were bits of red and bits of pink so the paper for the dividers was sorted!
The sections I have in this planner, are the things I need to have close at hand. There are my weeklies, which consist of week on two pages, which I make and print for my self.
A blog section, where I write ideas for upcoming posts. Currently this is just on note paper, but when I have more time, I'll be making proper inserts for this section and also the mail section. At the moment my mail section only has stamps and note paper saying what letters I need to write. This isn't very helpful because I often forget when things arrive and when they were posted, so I need to make inserts for that.
I think this is probably the best set up of a Filofax I have. Although it's still a work in progress. As I make it better, I'll be sure to show you guys. Also, how perf does my Vintage Gold Papermate Pen look in there?
