Summer Break! Finally! ☀️🌴🍹😎

Besides some beautiful sunny days t now it is time to get back on track on my blog!

I left a few updates hanging in there.

First, without any specific order {just because} let’s go back to the lovely curvy Teal Baroque Personal Filofax:

Can you recognize it by the cover only? 🤩 Sometimes I try to recognize Filofaxes before reading the reviews/ posts.  {Geeking out a bit here. 😄}

So this one was meant to be my “Happiness Project” binder based on Gretchen Rubin’s book. I ended up not finishing her book. Too many showed up at the same time and I got distracted. HA! 😀

 

♥️ It then became a “me” binder, which fits in perfectly! 

 

I took a gazillion of pics of that beauty {as I usually do} but I will try to overload less this time. 😁

✨Below is the very first tab. It makes me smile every time I see that beautiful “watercolor-like” flower and the quote that goes with it. 🌷
That is the main section of the whole binder. I don’t have any calendar on that Filofax but this is the juicy part of it that I always go back to – the journaling pages!
They are all pink although maybe I should had gone with the fashion green one:

My plan was to decorate inside each one of the tabs, but I couldn’t find any quotes that I like to fill in all of them. So just the first two are personalized so far.

✨Moving on, next tab is called “notes” {I forgot to take a pic – there is a pretty flower as well} and is very related to the journaling part – highlights of the “big findings about life/ me”. Also in pink pages.

All the other Filofax tabs are not really in use. One of them will be for sure a fold out “vision board” that I am hoping to get around over the summer.

✨The next fun part are the top tabs.

You may guess that I pulled out the inspiration from GalaDarling’s Filofax post 😎

Here goes from left to right:

  • Note-to-self: like “don’t use turtle neck shirts ever – it makes you feel suffocated and puts you in a bad mood.”
  • Ideas & random thoughts: pretty straight forward, huh?
  • Movies: yeah, that circle thingy is my attempt to draw those old fashion movie tapes
  • Music: Another straight forward one. I write down my faves or some suggestions to not miss. {Btw, have you heard Coralie Clement’s La Mer Opale? It is sooooo cute! First time I heard it I was in a stationary vintage shop digging in some old (from ’96!) Filofax inserts. I had to ask who was the singer and write down on my Filofax for future reference! ♥}
  • Books: loooong list to go over
  • Quotes: as they are everywhere when you least expect!
  • Websites: mostly blogs to go back to and dig some more. I honestly don’t use that tab much as I usually just email myself the link. {I don’t bookmark stuff either. I always forget where they are.}

Now, the very extremely fun part!

Before I discovered Filofaxes I had three separate boxes with cut-out magazine inspirations:

  • Outfits
  • House deco
  • Gardening tips

Sooooo as you may imagine, I now have all them combined inside my lovely ‘Me-Baroque’ binder.

There are the tabs:

  • Outfits:

My “tan-shoe” quest

 

  • House Deco:

Some “to-die-for” deco that I will implement at some point. 😀

 

  • Gardening Tips:

Not good at gardening. I need all the tips I can find. Really.

 

And finally the last section is mostly left overs from other Personal set ups that I just didn’t have the courage to toss out. 😀

Those pages were my “very first” Filofax planning when I got the pink Domino so I kind of feel attached to them.

There are a few tabs I made myself, with some planning even for the planners! I wrote half a sheet for each organizer I was planning on getting so I knew {at least I *thought* I knew} how to set them up. Most of the ideas I tried back-and-forth. A few of them didn’t work and a few of them are still in use.

The blog section moved to another Personal.

At the very back I added an old Franklin Covey plastic envelop for things I don’t know where to put – like those coffee shop reward cards that I may or may not use again.

My last pic {I promise! 😁} is just “because”. The curly part of the Baroque is oh-so beautiful!

Overall I LOVE this ‘Me-Baroque’ binder. 💞

It is very soft, absurdly flexible and gorgeous on the inside. {of course! Baroques 😍}

The draw back {for those of you determined to get one 😏} is that all it’s beauty, makes it feel sooo delicate to use.

I took it out of the house ONCE and almost didn’t survive! 😁 {Hence I almost didn’t survive, the Filofax was totally fine and having fun actually! teehee}
I was so nervous that it would scratch, mark, or anything that at the end it went right back on my desk at home and *** it has been living happily there since then. ♥️ ****

…the end…

I’ll see ya again next time! ☺️

Many Smooches,
