Anyone that follows me on Instagram will realise that I have become slightly addicted to my new Original Purple Patent A5 Filofax.I guess I should apologise here that not only has it invaded my Instagram and Twitter it’s also about to invade my blog and my life. Sorry!There’s something so different about Filofax. They seem to be able to create a perfect organising space for every man and woman. Whether you’re a home maker or a teacher, accountant or doctor I can nearly guarantee you’ll find something in the Filofax range that’ll suit you.The Original Organiser Patent purple in the size A5 was magnificently beautiful when I unwrapped the packaging. The colour is very striking and the cover has a really soft feel to it. I was a little concerned that by having an A5 sized organiser it would be bulky, heavy and unmanageable. This organiser is so light and slim.The diary inserts that this one comes with are fantastic for appointments and organising your life by time. Filofax have many options so that you can find a diary layout that suits your specific needs. It also comes with various note papers in different colours, graph paper and to do list paper.My diary has already become filled with colour. After doing a lot of research on Filofax I’ve seen so many pictures and blogs about decorating and customising. I just love it!The front page of the Orginal A5 Filofax has plenty of space for pens, odd bits of paper, leaflets and whatever the heck you fancy in there. The back page has a little notepad and another very useful pouch which I’ve been using for my appointment letters and tickets for shows etc.
I am totally in love with the clear zipped envelope/pouch that is at the back of the Filofax, although can be placed wherever, and I am using it to store all my post-its and stickers that were so kindly given to me by a follower on Instagram!As you can tell, I’m pretty happy with Filofax and am now a true Filo-user. You can purchase the Original Patent Organiser via the Filofax website. They come in three different colours; Black, Fuchsia and Purple. And are available in two different sizes: Personal for £60 and A5 for £80. I know most of you will be fainting at the price, I nearly did, but trust me they are worth every penny due to quality and the fact they can be reused over and over and over and for years to come with their simple refills!!
**Just to warn everyone… There may be a few more Filofax and organising posts in the future**
(I was sent the Original Patent A5 Filofax free of charge for the purpose of this review by Filofax. All other items were either bought by me or gifted from a friend. However, all opinions are of my own)
