Week Two

Can you believe we're on week two already? I couldn't quite bring myself to part with Christmas just yet so opted for a wintery theme this week instead as it's been so chilly, the only thing missing was Olaf! 

It's quite a quiet week this week, I don't seem to have much going on at all. The snowflake and silver polkadot washi tape is from Hobbycraft whilst the blue tape is from Wilkinsons. 

The stickers are from paperchase, mostly from their Christmas range I must confess although I couldn't resist the cute weather stickers too.

No snowy week would be complete without a couple of cheeky snowmen. Aren't they adorable? Their sparkly cuteness has certainly cheered me up this week!

Sales Joy!

Now you may remember I was a little upset a few weeks back as I'd attempted to buy a domino via eBay which went missing in the post. We're still trying to resolve that at the moment but in the meantime I've been doing a cheeky bit of sales shopping.

As such I landed myself a lovely domino A5 in red for less than £20! I like that the domino is budget friendly compared to some of the other Filofax products, but I thought this was a real steal! 

It's got plenty of space inside and as I'm going to be using this one for work, the week to view layout is perfect for my needs. The cover is lovely and smooth, really nice to touch and the red is a great deep red.

I'm a bit unsure about personalising the pages at the moment, I'm not too sure how that'll look in a meeting or what have you, but I will be personalising my dividers and dashboard as soon as I can.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you've had a good one? We've just got back from seeing in the New Year in Disneyland! It's been fantastic!    

It's a really great way to see in the new year and the fireworks are just magical! For Mr S and I, it's become our tradition to go to Disney for New Year's Eve as this is the fifth year we've been! 

Now, having spent the last few days eating mostly fast food and pain au chocolat I've been thinking carefully about what changes I'm going to make for the rest of the year. I don't like resolutions, I'm not too sure why I just think it sounds really negative and I never keep them anyway. So this year I have New Year's Goals; things I would like to achieve in 2015. In true Starlet style they have of course been added to my planner.

It's quite a simple design, but effective I think. I quite like being able to just turn to them at the front of my planner too. 

So here's to a fantastic 2015!

First week!

Ok you lovely lot, I am very pleased to be able to share my first pages from my organiser with you! 

 I'm not entirely sure how happy I am with this page but love the effect of the cute characters in the tape. Both stickers and tape were from paperchase.

I've also decorated a double spread for this week. Again I'm not too sure on this, maybe it's beginners nerves? We're off to  Disneyland  Paris to see in the New Year tomorrow, so I've used a combination of Paris tape, which I received for Christmas  and the Disney tapes which I already had. 

I decorated using Mickey stickers which came from Amazon, and felt the little travelling themed post-it's made a cute addition to the page as we're technically travelling this week.

Happy Christmas!

Morning my beauties! I hope you've all been thoroughly spoilt and had a wonderful and restful Christmas! It's been a crazy few weeks so I'm enjoying some down time to enjoy and share my favourite Christmas present! 

Ta da! I was super excited to unwrap this beauty on Christmas Day! Mr S was a bit cheeky and kept it back until last so I was really surprised! 

It's really beautiful, A5 with a tweed cover and I'm itching to get going so I can share all of it's pretty pages with you. 

There's lots of space on each page so I can decorate and include all of my important information too. Mr S has also bought me lots of supplies so I can keep my pages pretty which I'll share with you a bit later... In the meantime, I'm off to play'

Domino Disappointment

Last week I won a Domino Filofax for the bargain price of £6 on eBay. It was gorgeous! Even better it was red, my favourite colour! I could scarcely contain my excitement when it had been shipped.

So you can imagine my disappointment when the package arrived in one of those Royal Mail baggies in a mess. Even worse when the package turned out to be empty! 

Naturally paperwork has been filled in to try and recover my missing item, I'm vaguely hopeful that it'll turn up in some sort of lost property however it looks like someone opened the parcel. I'd hate to think, especially given the time of year, that someone has stolen it but it's certainly put me off using eBay again any time soon. 

Fingers crossed I'll have some good news to share with you really soon, but in the meantime there are only 10 more sleeps until I can start filofaxing with you beautiful people instead of just showing you my supplies.

Lamy Love

So after being treated last week to a beautiful new Lamy pen it seems I am well and truly in love! I treated myself to another pen which came with a pouch, box of cartridges and an ink eraser. I bought from Webster's Pen Shop via Amazon and it came to less than buying the safari on it's own in store! I'm not one to grumble as these will certainly make a permanent and much loved addition to my collection!

I also bought a bottle of ink and a convertot for this little beauty as I'm not a huge fan of disposable ink cartridges... I'm never even sure if they can be recycled? I ordered some turquoise ink for my first Lamy as well but I'm waiting for a replacement as unfortunately the first attempt resulted in my receiving the box only. Strange.
