Filofax Adelphi Review

One of my most favorite Filofax is the Adelphi. I was lucky enough to get the last one and it’s in my fav color too!

Here she is!

The cover is a diamond shape pattern.

It has a snap closure. But when you open it too often, it got wrinkles on the clasp.

There is a pocket inside the front cover with a Filofax logo embossed on the flap.

I got misaligned ring son the first 2 rings but somehow it got fixed. I guess it must be because of the shipping.

This beauty has an elasticized penloop which is the best for all my chubby pens.

Filofax charms

I’m so excited to show my new found love. It’s filifax charm that I just got yesterday. It’s so pretty!!!!

I bought 2 of them in yellow and lime green. I’m definitely going to get more.

Here is how it looks hanging in my filofax and Franklin Covey binders.

This is a lime green in my FC

I also got a kokechi charm from an IG friend of mine in Phillippines.
And a Thai closed friend bought a cross cell phone charm from Japan a year ago.

Here how they look.

Love them much!!!!

Filofax domino review

This is my third non-leather Filofax binder. I got it when Filofax UK had them on sale for 50% off. I also used a 20% duscount code. This one was super cheap compared to other leather filofax that I have.

Here is the picture.

image

This model has an elastic band as closure. The band make it shut tightly. I have no problems with things falling out or apart.

image

The elastic band was looped inside so I can’t change colors if I want to.

I hung an Hello Kitty charm in the band but this bindet is not metal-friendly. It left a dent mark on it. Just a wee bit but it’a big enough to bother me so I took the charm off tto protect my binder.

image

This binder doesn’t lie flat. I need to train it everytime I open.

Here is the inside. There are 4 card slots that big enough to slide in my credit cards!

image

And a wider slot down the bottom.

Here is the filofax logo…Pretty nicely embossed in a faux suede inside cover.

image

The rings are perfect. There is no gaps or unaligned rings. It also came with the fabric to protect the rings from making marks on the inside cover too.

image

The inserts come with July 2013 to December 2014. The papers are not the cotton cream ones. They’re thinner and most inks can easily bleed through.

They come with the usual inserts, pouch and a black ruler.

MATERIALS
– smooth PU (imitated leather feel)
– faux leather
– elastic band/pen loop

PRICE
– Regular price £24

COLORS
– deep pink
– black
– chocolate
– ultra violet
– violet

WEIGHT
– Lighter than most filofax binders when empty

CAPACITY TO HOLD PAGES
– 90% (no need to worry that you can’t snap close)
– 100% (this one can fit wider inserts like FC pages) but the pen loop will get in the way.

PEN LOOP
– Elastic and can slide a  big fat pen!
– just one though

VERDICTS
– Good quality for those who want to get to know a filofax.
– great for vegans who don’t want to use real leather binders.
– awesome for students who just starts school.
– Don’t invest in expensive binders! Start small and grow into a bigger collection!
– Use the binders or planners that suit your needs and have fun with it. Go for colorful planners if you ask me!!!

My FC at work

I’m using my franklin covey for work and for personal use. On weekdays, my binder will be stapled on my desk and i flipped through my planner all day to check my appointments, schedules, and to do list.

I planned my to do list and appointment in advance. By the day ends, i draw/doodle instead of writing a journal. This way when I look at the doodles, i can recall the moment and feelings I had right away.

I carry two planners. The main one is Franklin Covey planner because it has a bigger ring size and wider than the Filofax. I can stuff 2 months of day on 2-pages and a whole year of month on 2 pages.

The other one is my Filofax for work-related.

Filofax and FC by the sea

As most of the people do, we tend to carry our filofax everywhere and so do I. I brought them to the sea and be my models at the shore.

The colors are just to die for!

They are my great travel companion and i considered setting a travel-o-fax but i still think about what to put since I don’t usually plan any travel, hotel, transportation, etc.

By the way, I love the red Adelphi. I named her Ms. Coco because if her pattern that remind me of Coco Chanel signature design!
