awww! I am so happy with my new baby “the original” filofax! this collection is made in the UK and out of real leather. I am a huge filofax fan and had my white PANAMA for a good time and was so happy to visit the filofax distributor of switzerland in lausanne and exchange my old planner for a new one! thanks for having me, it was a blast!
have you ever wondered where the name filofax came from?
it comes from <files of facts> and became filofax. based on a true story: “1940 – during a German air raid in World War II, the business premises of Norman & Hill (now filofax) are bombed and razed to the ground. Grace Scurr was the heroine as she had her personal “file of facts” created with all supplier and customer data, which she always carried with her. only thanks to this information, the operation could be rebuilt.“ more info about filofax here >>
so I am aware that we live in 2014 where everything is digital BUT although I have my second brain called iphone/ipad and imac I still like to have something haptic like notes, paper and all that so for me the perfect organisation is a mix between digital and analog 🙂 “the original” collection has a strap for the iphone/phone which makes it the perfect businessplanner!
so are you familiar with the filofax system? no? well, let me tell you what awaits you! you buy your planner and you can add whatever you need and desire: addressbook, worldmap, blank notes, sticky notes, rulers, to do lists, daily planners and of course the diary.
what did I get?
diary 2014 and 2015 (week on two pages)
assorted sticky notes
