I bought my first filofax organiser in August last year. I did a lot of research on the internet before deciding which filofax to purchase, but researching on the internet sometimes overwhelms me with a huge amount of information and leaves me totally confused..! So, after a week of researching on the internet what I did was just turned off my computer and walked to Ryman which isn’t so far from my place. Then I found a lovely pocket-sized Finsbury Aqua which was reduced to only £20. My favourite colour is Red, but when I took it out of the box and touched it I just fell in love..! It was so beautiful and the smell of leather was absolutely gougeous. Aqua wasn’t my favourite colour, but I decided that this would be my very first Filofax organiser! (Until then I had been using Japanese organisers like Hobo Nichi Techo for many years.)
I had been happily using my Finsbury Aqua since that day until…LAST WEEK…! Because of my very stupid mistake (which I don’t even want to mention as I’m regretting it too much…!!!) I ruined the front cover of my beloved filofax… I would probably cope with it if it was the back cover, but I damaged the front cover. I tried to get used to my damaged filofax, but after using it for 3 days I decided that I would need a new filofax.
So, to make a very long story short, now I have my new filofax in my hands! I chose the Malden Vintage Pink this time (of course the pocket size again- it’s my favourite size as it fits in my purse perfectly).
I wasn’t so sure about ordering it on Amazon, but amazingly it arrived the next day by First Class Recorded. I actually found a small flaw but it wasn’t so bad, and after all it was only £29.94.
These are the dividers I made for my Finsbury↓
I was going to use the same dividers for my new Malden, but I noticed that there wasn’t enough space between the pages and the pen loop like the Finsbury. So I made new dividers for the Malden↓
It wasn’t much fun making 14 dividers, but now I’m so happy that I made them!
This is a chart of the P&P that I often refer to for new orders.

I’m really happy with this new see-thru divider I made. I cut out the middle part of a divider and laminated it so you can see both pages even though the divider is in between.
I keep my Japanese “omamori” (talisman) which I got from Meiji Jingu (Meiji Shrine) before leaving Japan in 2010.
These are the kokeshi calendar stickers I make and sell↓
I’m selling them on eBay, Etsy and on my own website (banners are on the right side!). You can visit my shop on Etsy from the banner below↓
Thank you very much for reading my very long post!
