Lovely Leelah

While at Cape May, I also ventured into a cozy little spiritual store, named Good Scents, filled with many exciting new things I haven’t really seen anywhere else yet =).  You can also find further info about the shop’s variety of incense here.  In the back was a Leelah hoodie I instantly feel in love with!  It was their Honey Love design (“Life is the Flower for which Love is the Honey”).  Comfortable, soft, pretty, great for everyday (and for yoga!), and fits me very well.  Later that week, I decided to explore the company’s site.  All of a sudden, I remembered that one of my local boutiques also carries a few items from their clothing and accessories line (Leelah makes very distinctive-looking products).  What I really love besides their clothing is their full-size spiral notebooks and mini books.  It is perfect for the Filofax lover, like myself or someone who regularly gets lost in their imagination and enjoys doodling or journaling…  all you have to do is re-punch the paper to fit your chosen organizer or slide a mini book into its planner pocket.  As an aside, if you are a big fan of letter stationery, you can do the same.  My daily organizer is an A5 so this works out perfectly =).  Just wanted to share my thoughts especially with those who like customing/decorating their Filofax.  I know how much joy that brings to me.  I’ve featured a few of my favorites below and you can catch a “virtual” glimpse of Good Scents.

Filo Fancy

In the past few years I’ve gradually become increasingly disorganized =(; almost to the point of being unrecognizable.  I didn’t remedy this realization immediately…

One day I was rifling through my drawers (like a crazy lady) looking for blank Christmas cards and found my old planners from early 2000.  I remembered how much I used to love writing in them and having them close at hand like friends who wanted to see me succeed in the world.  I never gave up on making lists but did sadly give up on them.  They were too tiny to carry all that I wanted, even for 7″x 5″s; chalk it up to being a flaky Gemini.  The organization I had worked for also kept me dependent on their FREE desk-sized calendars and 8.5″x 10″ Weekly Monthly planners (with the nice two page monthly spread) so there was no need to think outside the box.

Then, someone mentioned Filofax recently… and I thought back to how dull they were when they first came out =( yuk!  Nothing like those ridiculously cute Kate Spades.   Though something in me wanted more out of life; I wasn’t living the way I wanted to so I was led to You Tube to check out current day Filofaxs (gotta love You Tube).  I couldn’t believe how nice they became; a real turnaround!  I’m at present moment smitten with the Malden (Vintage Pink [sadly discontinued] & Purple [only available across the pond in A5 but Personal size still available in the U.S. in limited quantities]), Finsbury (Raspberry [currently still available]), Chameleon (Raspberry [also regrettably discontinued]), and Luxe in A5 (Black Currant [out in 2013]).  What can I say?  I’m a sucker for purple =).  I’m also interested in converting a Filofax Compact into a functional wallet and thensome.

When I get the chance, I will post a special blog regarding my new Raspberry Finsbury and how I have it set up.  I will also include other helpful references just in case you would like to begin your own Filofax journey.  ‘Til next time…
