The Happiness Project Binder is here!

✨That means the Personal Baroque Turquoise arrived!✨

Straight from France after ONLY SIX days of the shipping date! Unbelievable! Their time-frame was up to 25 days. I stuck with that so I wouldn’t be too anxious waiting around {yeah, right! Sure I didn’t! Who said I wasn’t refreshing the shipping tracking page everyday? πŸ˜†}

Well, it is finally here!

If you can recall I got spoiled checking pics of people getting their filofaxes in lovely black boxes. It is a small detail but what can I say? I got hooked on that!
My first Filofax came from Filofax USA and I was all expectations about seeing that black box. But it came straight out of a shipping box! Argh! 😀 Cheap and upsetting!

So there I was excited to open the package from Filofax France….

This time it couldn’t be straight out of a shipping box, right? After all, it wasn’t the cheapest Filofax they had available anyway {It was on sale thou, I admit! 😏}

And when it finally came….. Let’s do a walkthrough of it:

Here is the appealing shipping box that I am sure you all came here to see πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈβœ¨

Then after opening the side of it, I see this:

Whaaaatttttt! Really? REALLY?

I was so disappointed that I sat down and stared at it for a sec thinking:

“Why on earth do I keep getting organizers carelessly tossed into shipping boxes? Why not some thought when packing it? It could have scratched my lovely new Baroque if it was rubbing against that tough box! Why? Why?”

I know it is not supposed to be a big deal but it bugs me to imagine a fancy Filofax organizer having the same packaging as a notebook ordered from Target.

As I tried to get over my disappointment I carefully open the other side of the shipping box thinking that I would just see scratches all over the place and then I see this:

Such a relief!!! ok, ok, it it all made sense now….

A Filofax box with a SIDE opening! Of course! I have seen some of those around! Why I didn’t think of it? Oh, man, I GLADLY didn’t see that coming! πŸ˜€

Here it is, a real Filofax box for me:

Now, enough with the box craziness and let’s get to the fun part, shall we?

Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you WITHOUT the scratches painfully visualized, the organizer in its whole glory:

The pics are showing the leather very β€œplastic-like” for some reason. It really is not.

From side to side

 

As I mentioned earlier this Filofax is intended to be my Happiness Project.

I have been devouring Gretchen Rubin’s book and thought I needed to give it a try.

My Happiness Binder is far from been complete, it has barely a few tabs on it so I will be posting again to show the progress.

Thanks for stopping by! ✨

Smooches,
Raine Signature

    I love the Baroque! I wish there was an A5 version of it, it could easily become my day-to-day calender if there was!

    I do love this FF and am quite tempted to buy one. I just wish the amazing embossed pattern was all over the outside! Then I would for sure. It’s lovely anyway though – enjoy!

    It looks lovely! I got my first Filofax for Christmas, a personal Finsbury, but I think I will end up with a Baroque at some point. Love how the pattern is on the inside.

    what a lovely binder! I also was so disapointed when my Domino arrived only wrapped in a bit of I don’t know, foamy paper?(I am in the states) I wanted that Filo box!! I’m nuts I know. I might just get a Baroque next, off to see what colors it comes in. Debi

    @everyone: Thanks! I am loving it! It would be amazing all that beautiful curvy pattern in an A5. Actually it would be good if they offered more options of A5s :/ Its design is always so limited compared to the other ones.@Debi: Yay! I am glad to know someone understands my disappointment of not having a black box! πŸ™‚

    I love how the Baroque is like a secret garden – all smooth, plain leather on the outside, but once you open the cover: beautiful!

    I love the Baroque! I’ve had mine for four years and while I have tried out a few others, I always end up moving everything back into the Baroque. It’s like a good old pair of jeans to me now πŸ™‚ I opened up the loop and slipped a chain through it so I can attach some beads & charms to it like this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ambercegraham/6544147963/in/set-72157628455018247Mine came in a slip box too; all my filos have! I would love to get a proper box one day…x

    HI terriknits and susanne, thanks for stopping by, it is a really beautiful organizer!@ace – actually the first time I saw the baroque (and fell in love with it) was on your blog! πŸ™‚ I saw the beads you attached as well and really wanted to do the same but I am afraid I would do something wrong and ruin the leather. I am waiting for an Adelphi that I ordered recently and maybe this time it will come in a real box! πŸ™‚

    omg, the Baroque is so gorgeous! When I just saw the outside I was like, “oh, that’s pretty plain”, then I saw the FF opened and my jaws dropped (yes, I’m new to Filofaxes, so I’m still new to some designs).I now really really want one!

      I know, the Baroque is really something isn’t it? I don’t understand why they decided to discontinue it.

    Hi,

    I know this post is from almost a year ago but I had to comment! I thought I was the only agenda geek! (I found your site through an IG picture.) That’s a beautiful shade of turquoise! I have a personal Filofax too and am considering getting an A5 next year.

    Off to read more posts… πŸ™‚

      You will love the A5s. They are so roomy, very easy and smooth to write on.
