Filofax love

Thanks for all your lovely comments :) They truly make my day!

For my anniversary gift, Jason gave me a Filofax. He told me he wanted to get it for me because the first wedding anniversary involved paper. It's a really thoughtful gift because I have wanted one for soo long!

It's this pretty aqua/turquoise colour. 

It came with this pretty pink note paper. 

I've started writing in it. 

It has a little plastic pocket and an area for coins, notes and cards if you want to also use it as a purse. 

What I love about it is I can keep myself more organised. It has an area for address and phone numbers, a To Do list, an area for notes. I like to write all my things done even though I have an iPhone. I guess to me, I feel as though I'm more organised when it's written down with pen and paper. 

I'm just trying to find the perfect pen to accompany it now. Anyone else like to use organisers? Or paper diaries?

Eeep! I'm my birthday on Tuesday and I really don't want to get a year older :( I might spend my day shopping because I'll be alone :( Though I'm meeting Jason for lunch and we will go out for dinner (and my Alice in Wonderland themed birthday later on in the month too).

Hope you had a fantastic weekend!!

P.S. I'm having a giveaway over at Busy Bee Lauren's blog :) Check it out

What a brilliant idea of Jason's to get that for your first anniversary and it is gorgeous. I really like the idea of it being used as a purse too because sometimes I get fed up with all the different bits in my bag.

Shopping on your birthday sounds like a good way to spend the day. Have a fabulous day.

I love that the first anniversary involves paper. As a self-confessed stationery addict, I approve!
