* warning, picture heavy ;) *
Finally my Filofax arrived! It's been about 3 weeks now since I ordered a Filofax from WHSmith, and after ringing up 3 days ago we found out it'd been cancelled and we'd been refunded. We weren't contacted, even though they said we were. I was told they'd sent it 2 weeks ago when they hadn't even had it in stock. A little note to any companies: don't lie, it just gets your customers annoyed!
I then decided to order from Filofax directly, it did cost a little more but it arrived so quickly. I ordered it on Thursday night and it arrived on today (yesterday by the time this is posted) which is pretty amazing! I picked up the Personal Finsbury in Pink and a few inserts. I'd already purchased some inserts which I'll also show..
It's soft grained leather which reminds me slightly of leopard print.
Overall I'm loving my Filofax and can't wait to actually use it. I've found the 'perfect pen' but it broke (I broke it but don't tell them that..) so I'll have to get a replacement. It's a silver black ink biro. I officially sound like an old woman! The quality of the Filofax is a tiny bit below what I expected as there is glue near the card slots and the material inside the card slots is slightly fraying, but I can deal with that. It also doesn't lie flat yet I can deal with that too, it's not the end of the world!
I originally bought this Finsbury to use for blogging and college dates. I'm going to use the Web Addresses to jot down bloggers, the Coloured Notepaper to write down ideas for posts and I'll be writing down when I've received products etc in the diary. I'll also use the diary to keep up with work I need to do relating to college and any other college related things! I can jot dentist, doctors and other appointments too.
I think it's heaven. ;)
