In love with the Original! – Personal Green

Yep, I now own a green Original Filofax in personal size! I’ve been wanting some colour for ages, as the black Finsbury is just boring me a little. This green is such a nice colour, and of course the original leather is lovely!

imageI bought this off someone as almost new. Used for two months, but you can’t tell! It’s in perfect condition. It also lies pretty flat upon opening it, and will be flat once I open to my diary. It is quite dark, but also bright at the same time. It adds a lovely dash of colour without being too in your face (yes, I’m looking at you fluoro pink original! ;) hahah!)

So I only did a set-up update quite recently, but here it is again… I think I may make a new first page. As much as I love my Harry Potter one, I feel like I need a change! I think I’ve had that for over a year! (Saying that, this will be my first ‘new’ daily filofax in almost a year!)

The pen set-up is only temporary. I’m going to order a pen loop for my four-colour, as it is so big. Currently I’m putting the ‘handle’ bit in the loop so it can sit outside of the pages (as can be seen in the last photo!)

So first I just have a couple of wallets with random bits in there.

Then it’s my notepaper!

I have my diary after that, but I’m leaving that out of this post! At the back I have more wallets with sticky notes, stickers, random cards and a photo of my Grandad in there (:

I’m not sure I will be keeping this notepad in, as I don’t think I will use it… Might just ‘trial’ it!

    The green is gorgeous, so much nicer than I had imagined it would be.
    I just got the fluoro orange personal original and it is amazing, such a huge leap upwards from my domino. It smells so nice and I find myself sitting there just stroking her (my husband thinks I’m all kinds of weird!!)
    How do you find the strap length though?

    • As of now, I’m finding the length perfectly fine! I’m trying to only put in what I need though. I’ve had a stuffed Finsbury for a while, and in the past weeks I’ve slowly taken out all the unnecessary things xD

  • I am loving The Original.. Was thinking of getting A5 in maybe green or yellow for some colour.. I’m such a brown girl that almost all my organisers are brown!

    • Yeah, I actually have a proper mix xD I got bored of my black finsbury though and needed some colour!

    I must admit I love both the green and purple original. I really want to touch one in real life before I order though. Thanks for the review and great photos.

    • Yeah, the one thing I can say about the purple is that I couldn’t use it as an every day planner. The patent leather is just so shiny, I feel like it would get ruined in my bag!
