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,

Raine Signature

    I love it! Especially the little drawings on your tabs and the magazine collages, might have to try those myself. And Baroques are my favourite. Managed to get hold of a black personal one recently and I know what you mean when you say it feels delicate. Still jealous of your green one.

    That curvy curvaceous leather is beautiful! And the green has an aged copperesque look that I love. But most of all thanks for the Coralie Clements suggestion. She is now listed in my filofax awaiting time and energy to websearch and find. Thanks!

    Honey,

    You have done a great job as usual with your setup 🙂

    I don’t have a ME binder or journal or planner since I can’t seem to be able to keep up with one for long enough. At the end of the month there is always blank days that I know that I had to have something on because I read a book or something but I just don’t feel like writing that down… and it’s gotten worst in the last 2 months.

    My only happy thing has been my Book Blog that has content every weekend. Could be anytime from Friday to Monday (during the weekend) that I upload something there and I’m proud of it 😛

    I have to take some pictures of my A5 Fussion though… It has a great setup for my Book recording and Novel writing stuff… Hmmm good idea *goes to write a draft about that idea*

    Keep doing what you do Sweety and don’t change, unless it’s for the better 😀
