Pre-Warning: This is a LoooOOoooOOooOOOOooong post! XD
I got it from TK Maxx so I got it at a cheaper price than buying it from WH Smith or Filofax directly. I have the Metropol (the style) Personal (the size) Organiser in this pretty Blue/Lavender colour.
So the first initial inside flap has two stickers on it, one "Oh, Honey!" sticker from the Katy Perry Eyelure lashes and a 3d lenticular (I think they call them?) sticker from Barbie :P
It then has six lil' pockets to hold business cards and one large pocket that I put the "Stick & Memo" Flap around so I can always reach stickies and notes quickly & easily.
Next up is my first divider, I actually made all these dividers from paper packs I got off of Amazon (I measured out the old ones and drew round them then cut them out and glued two sides together :)). I decorated this one with my Sugarpill Heartbreaker palette sleeve (which is just waaay too pretty to throw away!), a lil' cupcake embellishment I made and a small hello kitty heart sticker :3.
This divider holds the "Month on two pages" pages I have which I actually just use for blogging! It gives a really easy, quick overview that I can just see when each post needs to be up, when to tweet it etc.
These are little stickers that I got from Amazon and I use these anywhere in my diary! You get lots of little birthday ones, holiday, dentist, medical, car mots, dinners out, special occasions, sports-all sorts! These are just so useful, you get two pages of them as well and they're fairly inexpensive too. Just Love these :')
|Month on two pages-Didn't want you to see what I had coming up! :P|
I had to blur it out as I didn't want you guys to get a whiff of what's coming up ;D but you can see I use lil' fluorescent stickies as my markers (nah, different colours don't really mean much, just the colour I was feeling that day :P). I also mark around the actual month as it shows you days of the last month and next month and that really confuses me >.< So, I highlight around the actual month to make it easier to see at a glance.
Next divider is Week View! (I like the week on two pages as I find it gives me enough space to jot everything down for each day, I also have found I like to use the lined/ruled pages as my handwriting can be appalling without a little guidance :P) I would ideally like the day on one page but they don't make it in Personal size that I could find... as it has a nice layout of hours for the day and I like to be precise :P. As you can see I used my Sleek Candy Collection Palette box for this divider and added some embellishments (lil' hearts & flower).

So you can see in the pic above that highlight comments differently, Green is something to remember, pink means I have to go somewhere/leave the house and then I add stickies, I have these adorable lil' camera ones that I like to write on them what I am photographing-you can see on this one it's for this post!
Address Divider: (not pretty enough to photograph!)
These adorable pages of Adventure Time themed Address Spaces I made myself on Publisher. I measured the Filofax pages and then edited the page size on publisher to that size so they printed the right size :) I actually typed up addresses I already had but just left spaces for ones I don't so I could write them in later.
So this divider is my "orders" divider, because I hardly do any shopping in store anymore (apart from the odd makeup and clothing) so I keep track of all things ordered in here! Then I can chase up deliveries of stuff if I've forgotten I've ordered it haha! Oh dear... But you can see this divider's paper is so pretty, I wanted just one brightly coloured thing in the centre and this Illamasqua lip booklet cover seemed like the thing! You can see the set this booklet came from here:
Next up is my "Important" divider, perhaps the busiest looking divider I have!? It's pretty much the opposite to the Orders divider, I had a really busy paper style and wanted something quite simple to sit on top of it and this Iron Fist label (comes on all their clothes) was something I wanted on display somewhere so this seemed perfect :')
In my Important divider I just keep important bits of info I might forget like blood group etc :).
Now this divider is my favourite! (Go on, just guess as to why :P) It's actually for my To Do lists but the decoration on this one definitely steals away the prize from any others to me... I used an old Benefit box from the One Hot Minute powder! I just cut it more neatly and added a pic of Ed and I underneath and bingo! Really cute divider :3
I WILL NOT be showing you a picture of my To-Do list layout as it is pure MAYHEM!
|My Divider for finding my place!|
Believe it or not, this page finder is made of an old Tissue Box, the black parts were actually furry but I had to laminate it to make it stronger but I still love this print & in real life you can see the indents from the furry stuff and I love that :3
This divider & the next one are made from old pages of Benefit Catalogues!! This one I loved as Simone looks so pretty in the circus themed ring leader's outfit and I liked the horse :P
This divider is my Post Note pages, so any posts I am making like this one gets two to three pages for me to just doodle on and make notes on what I am going to say so I don't forget what I thought was important at the time!!
This was the advert for the new box o'powder plush glosses when they came out :3 I do really like them actually!
And this divider is for my exercise/healthy eating progress log/ideas for lunches etc. Everything to do with that side of my life basically!
This is the last bit of my Filofax, it's a personal sized sticky notes (official Filofax product) bought off of Amazon also. You can probably tell by now that Amazon is my life lol :P
Above are all the sticky notes I have that I slide into the front sleeve of my organiser, I got all of these off of eBay literally by typing in cute sticky notes (Be warned, you may end up spending over £30 on sticky notes as I very nearly did!). I chose these, though, because they have one nicely sized note sticker and lots of little tabbies which I really like to use as they don't take up much space and the camera ones I use (set not pictured here) to remind myself to take pictures of things/products!
This picture is all my pens I use in my Filofax!! On different coloured papers, I like to use different textures/colours whatever that stand out and make it more easily (in my opinion) read. I have a nice range of Sharpie Fine Points in lots of pretty bold colours, another nice range of Stabilo fine liners in nice bold & pastel colours, a great set of Crayola thin pens (I love soft feeling colouring pens like these! :3) and finally a small set of coloured metallic pens also! So it's a big range of textures, colours etc to match the paper types in my organiser.
Anyhoo. That is FINALLY IT! Well Done & Thank You so much if you made it all the way to the end! Even if you just scrolled through the piccies :P I hope you like this and this has given you some ideas on how to organise/spruce up your old Filofax/whichever organiser you use. I love you all very much and will see you in the next post! x x x
