I have a confession: I’m a stationary addict. Notebooks, diaries, pens, post-it’s, envelope and paper sets… you name it. Every year I get overly excited about owning a new diary, and when I pick the style, I make the decision process extremely cut throat. I like my stationary to reflect me and my personality, but also look so pretty that I look forward to organising my life every day.
There’s one stationary brand I can’t get enough of, and that’s Filofax. However, I’ve always seen it as more of a gifting brand, therefore have never actually indulged in buying into the range of professional and stylish organisers. And this Christmas just passed, I finally decided to drop some hints to those unsure what to get me. And my word – what a good idea that was…
I’m now the proud owner of two glamorous gold Filofax products, carrying both handbag sized versions in my handbag on a daily basis. Never again will I forget important meetings, emails to reply to, appointments and all those socialising events I overtook myself with. Just take a look at the beautiful iPad Pro 9.7 Tablet Case – Saffiano Zip Gold, and the A5 Rose Gold Special Edition Organiser.
The rose gold diary went out of stock in the run up to Christmas, and I almost panicked I’d miss out on owning this stunning special edition. Luckily, my twin sister managed to track it down just in time for the big day, making me one very happy lady on December 25th!
As you can see from the photos, the iPad Pro 9.7 Tablet Case has a gorgeous metallic gold leather-look cover and secure zip around closure. It fits perfectly in my hand and looks super stylish when carried around.
- 360° rotatable tablet holder for multiple viewing positions
- Tablet specific protective ABS shell
- A multi-directional notepad/notebook pockets – also includes an A5 ruled notepad
- An elastic smartphone, pen/stylus and accessory pockets
It retails at £44.99, and keeps my iPad protected at all times. It’s a dream to carry around now it’s secured in this pretty little case!
The A5 diary retails at £52, and literally acts as my brain. My life is now super organised and all in order thanks to this diaries various pages. As well as the special edition leather-look Saffiano organiser having a beautiful metallic rose gold finish, it has five card pockets, one secretarial pocket, one elastic pen loop to the left, and a large notepad pocket to the right.
The pages feature spaces to write information on a daily basis, so those vital appointments can all get noted!
If you struggle for gifts for friends and family, and you know they are a busy lady (or an organising maniac!) then Filofax organisers and cases are the perfect gift ideas. I was honestly made up to receive both of these, and although it sounds slightly over the top, they have changed my life!
Good old Filofax to the rescue…
