Filofax Notebook Review

Hey Everyone, 

About a week ago I was talking to a friend about how much she loved the Filofax notebook range. Out of curiosity I went and ordered myself one. My blog notebook hasn’t been working for me as it’s quite rigid to use so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to invest in something I can use time and time again. I ordered from eBay for less than Ā£9.

When it arrived despite all the good reviews I had heard I wasn’t expecting it to be as nice as it is. I ordered the butterfly design which is really pretty. The covers are extremely sturdy and well wearing and the pages can be removed and added in the same way you use a disc planner like the Happy Planner.

It came with dividers, not particularly my colour or that matched the notebook but again great quality and the first one has an in-built pocket which I have decorated. 

The best bit however is the paper quality, it is amazing. Thick and smooth it’s really nice to write on, it just highlights futher how lacking Filofax planner inserts are. The notebook also comes with full lined inserts and a sample pack of 4 sheets of graph and plain paper.

Filofax have just released a new pastels range as well which are gorgeous and the dividers match. Currently these are only available on the official site and are around Ā£12.99 each.

Below you can see some pictures of mine. I’m loving using it and would highly recommend them, they would be great for bullet journaling also.

My College Planner and Set-Up

As some of you may remember I posted about a month ago about how I was due to start college again in September and as struggling with what options were available.

Well now I have gone back and I have sorted my planner situation out.

Let’s have a look at what I opted for…

The Planner: Pause Large by Kikki-K

I received this planner in a swap and initially  had no idea what I was going to do with it. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it as my experience with Kikki-K planners has been a little hit and miss. My favourite is a Kikki-K but I have found most of there others planners are quite bulky without even adding the inserts.
However once I added all my bits and pieces to it, it turned out to be pretty perfect. It won’t fit much in there in the way of actual lesson work but I don’t intend on adding anythign like that other than Key Notes sheets. This is primarily as a diary and schedule keeper.

To compliment this I purchased a ARC disbound A5 notebook. This is perfect as they have both have the same colour scheme and I can add the A5 sheet into my planner if it is something that is important.

I really like this set up, it’s pretty, simple and effective.
Do you study? If so what are you using? I’d love to hear from you šŸ™‚
