Bye bye Filofax, hello Midori

Hello everyone.
Today I am finally going to share with you my Midori Traveler's Notebook.

I decided to move away from Filofax about seven weeks ago after completely losing faith in both them and SlamPR. So I made a makeshift diary, and then finally ordered the midori.

I have now been using the midori for 4 weeks, and love it!!

So from now, this post will be picture heavy :)

I added a little butterfly charm to the page marker.

We have the inside cover, with Midori's sticky pockets. And a craft file on the right with the spotty sticky pockets.

Inside the craft file.

After the craft file I have the midori free diary. It's a week to view.

The free diary is very handy for starting at random times in the year as you write in your own dates and months.

At the back of the diary I have some sticky notes, then the green cover is the quadrille notebook with Muji sticky note on it.

Inside my notebook.

I use washi tape on the edges of the pages to make it look pretty. This is my password page.

Then I had a page for the Filofax meeting yesterday with train times and child care arrangements noted down, and also who was attending the meeting.

This is a rather random page. My phone hasn't been keeping its battery very long. So I've started taking note when I charge it, and how long it lasts.

This is the information page at the back of the quadrille notebook.

Then I have my photoaday list that I'm doing on Instagram.

Next comes my Christmas section.

I have pages for presents to buy people, to do, Christmas card list etc.

At the back of the quadrille notebook I have another sticky pocket for cards then there is a zipped/card pocket.

Then at the back there is some more sticky pockets.

So there is a tour of my midori.

Will I return to Filofax????
I may well do. The meeting was very positive yesterday I saw one at the Filofax shop that I love, but didn't buy :(. So if I can get a new one then I will.

I would like to thank everyone for their entries to my competition to win the filofax Metropol. I had fun doing this and even more fun reading the entries.

I had a tough decision between two entries that required me in the end to bring in an independent judge.

So lets have a look at the photo again, to remind us what caption I was looking for as a winner.

The winning caption is.....................

"In solidarity with the company losing half it's profit, Gordon Presly stands stoically with half sleeves"

And the winner is Kristin Peters.

Congratulations Kristin, drop me an email and I will post your prize out to you!

Thank you everyone who took part, and entered the competition. Look out for another Filofax giveaway soon!!!

Filofax Competition time


Earlier this year I took part in a Holiday Essentials Challenge run by Filofax. The idea was to make a mood board for three Filofaxes given by Filofax themselves.
Today I am holding a competition to win one of these Filofaxes, the Personal Metropol in Kingfisher Blue.

There was an article on here that told of the troubles that Letts Filofax were facing. Attached to the article was the following photograph of the CEO of Letts Filofax, Gordon Presly.

To win the Personal Metropol in Kingfisher Blue all you have to do is the following.............................
I would like you to come up with a caption that best suits this picture.
The one I find the funniest will win.
The competition will close on November 20th 20.00 GMT, and the winner will be announced on November 22nd.
Terms and conditions.
# The judges decision is final.
# To enter you must follow my blog, comment below to say you do, then email me your caption.
# Email your entries to me at
# If the winner doesn't contact me by Nov 25th 20.00 GMT, another winner will be chosen.
# I do accept bribes (haha).
# The above term is a joke.
GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
