For this week’s blog I’m going back to Filofax related matter. I’ve been journaling for 18 months and it’s been on just basic A5 notepads. I wanted to make my journaling experience more of a tactile, luxurious, event so decided to look into inserts and Filofaxes.
Whilst browsing Ebay (as you do!) I came across a Personal Portland as a bargain. I wanted to try a vintage Filofax so I could understand the difference to the newer versions. So here are the pictures:-
The leather is gorgeously smooth, soft and supple. I generally find the Personal size paper too long and thin but as you will see from the photos, I bought the Franklin Covey Her Point of View daily inserts (http://franklinplanner.fcorgp.com/store/buy/Ring-bound/Her-Point-Of-View-Ring-bound-Daily-Planner-Refill/prod370009/?skuId=60605) which are a touch wider and have beautiful hues of colour. Although the line spacing is rather tight, I just write on every other line.
My only gripe is the right hand pen loop is just a little too narrow to keep my fountain pen. I now keep this Filofax at my bedside so I can relax and journal just before bed.
As always, I welcome any questions or comments left below.
