my filofax week #23

Can you believe this is the 23rd Filofax week on Paper Lovestory? I can't believe it's lasted this long. It also gives me a reason to get creative every night to decorate my days and it keeps me away from the laptop for a bit each night which is good.

Anyway, before I show you my week and elaborate on what went down, just thought I'd say that if you'd like to be featured, I'm open to that possibility :) Just email me at paperlovestoryblog[@]gmail.com and we can discuss it or just send in a picture of your week, maybe a little bit of text to explain it and remember to let me know of your blog/twitter link(s).


Because I can't start work til January due to a health issue, my days are a bit dull so I brighten it up by adding stickers, (loads of) colour and use of washi tape. I've tried to keep busy each day by having at least one task designated for that day and so far so good. I've enrolled in a few online courses from American universities and they start tomorrow which should keep me busy for the time being!

One last thing: have a look at the Filofax Heavyweight Champion Contest if you haven't already :) Guaranteed to make you go 'wow' at some of the Filofax weights discussed. Talk about a (planner) obesity epidemic!

How was your week? I know mine doesn't look 'professional' so once work starts for me, expect to see less of the stickers! Washi tape has come in handy for highlighting important info though so that will be staying, as will colour. I need colour in my life :)

  1. How nice and colourful, Angela! I really enjoy looking at your Filofax week pictures. You really make your pages to look pretty. And this time I like it even better, since I've discovered my name written on them. LOL

    I'm planning to try a slim organiser (shame on me, it's not a Filofax) as soon as I get the inserts. I don't think it'll weight more than 300-400gr (yay!), so there is no point for me to enter the Filofax Heavyweight Champion Contest, I've lost it already. :-)

    1. Thank you! :)

      You can still enter, it's just a bit of fun to see how much they carry with them everyday. I moved into a Slimline properly yesterday so I would also lose once I upload an updated picture hehe. x

  4. Oh mygod thank you so much for that course site. My boyfriend has to be in a constant state of learning. He just doesn't stop even when he has no structured course to follow, he just sits and reads and watched stuff online allll day long and this would be perfect for him. He's been wanting to learn some programming and there is a course that starts shortly on it. Also; I've regretted not doing History at Uni and there is a perfect history course starting soon too so I might do it alongside my degree now I quit my job and have the time! Wow!
    I went to the Filofax store near regents street for the first time the other day. It was horrible. The lady working there was sooo snotty and it was in a quiet area full of designer shops not far from Saville Row. SO snotty. It made me kinda see what your open letter from the other day is all about. I was looked at as if I am just not cool or rich enough to have a filofax, psh! Think I will be buying from the website from now on.

    1. No problem :) I love the variety of courses that are on offer, and it only requires a few hours each work which is great. I also regretted not doing more humanities during my A Levels so seeing things like Philosophy really excited me hehe.

      I've had that before as well but I've never been to the Conduit Street store so not in that one. Whenever I experience that though, it really puts me off that store? x
