my filofax weeks #1 & #2

angela over at "paper lovestory" has started a new feature over on her blog based on her 'my filofax week' posts. every week she posts a photo of her (super colourful) week in her diary, and has asked other bloggers to join in the challenge.
as i'm trying to make as much use as possible from my filofax, i thought this was a pretty neat idea- and also a little excuse to keep my diary nice and cheerful!

i totally forgot to post last week, so here are my weeks one and two.

i bought the paperchase 2013 diary, but i think i'm gonna buy the whsmith one this week as the layout looks so much better. i use a 4 way colour pen to colour code (anyone know of a really thin one that will fit in the pen loop?!) and then just a ton of sticky notes dotted around the place! i made my first washi tapes purchase last week, so maybe i'll try to use those in there too.

i'm gonna try to keep this up for the whole year, and hopefully it'll be a little push to keep me on top of things. if you're taking part in this challenge then let me know- i love seeing how other people use their diaries :)

  2. Hmm, although I have a faux-lofax (geddit, haha) I might join in with this every now and then! I use the paperchase week to view for my diarying needs, as I rarely write all THAT much and would do too much flicking if was a page per day... and I too have searched for a thinner 4 colour pen, to no avail!
    DO you remember the pens of childhood days gone by, that had 10 or 12 colours in and were really chunky?!

    1. haha, love it! i don't think it matters in the slightest if it's a filofax or not!! ahh, i think the search for the pen may be a lost cause then, darn. i used to love those! they were huge and slightly ridiculous, but man did you look cool if you had one! xx

  3. I wish I was busy enough to need a filofax! Maybe I should do something about that! haha!

    1. haha, i'm not always busy, but i just find it super helpful to keep my general ramblings in check :) x

  4. I really wish I had a filofax! The calendar on my phone is such a pain in the arse. Great post!
