Washi tape

For today’s post, I wanted to write an ode to something I love; washi tape. WASHI TAPE! (Yes, really. Please excuse how odd this post is.)

Can ya see it?!

Washi tape makes my planner pretty; I could sit for hours, just decorating it, cutting it up in bits, etc. And it makes me very happy to see a sudden burst of colour. But Washi Tape, apart from being pleasing to the eye, cheap, and fulfilling a decorative purpose for your planner, also has several other uses.

I guess I use Washi Tape a lot-I can even sit through films, decorating. It’s what cheers me up. There are even other bloggers who keep samples in their planner, so that they can decorate on the go. But it doesn’t take being really creative-there are so many things you can do with Washi Tape. Here are some posts that I found on the Net:

Washi Tape, I do love you. And I can’t wait to decorate my new planner ๐Ÿ™‚

If you go to their website via this linkย , and order the Spongedry, you can get an extra free foundation blender by adding under ‘Note To Seller’ your colour code: LYDIAPINK for pink, LYDIAPURPLE for purple, and LYDIABLACK for black.

Filofax love from around the web! ๏ปฟ


Filofaxes are cool. I think that if you read this blog regularly, or are part of the planner world, you’ll probably already know this. But enough about my planner! (Well, directly anyway…) I wanted to put together a post about ‘Filofax love’-a collective from around the internet. And in doing that, I’ll illustrate my post with pictures of my planner ๐Ÿ˜

Oberjean.

Sadly, Oberjean appears to be inactive nowadays-but this blog is what introduced me to Filofaxes in the first place. (I had missed the references in 27 dresses.) This website teaches that’s it is cool to have a Filofax, and be organised at the same time-because they aren’t mutually exclusive at all! For the introductory post, click here. And if you want to see part two, which is all about organisation, click here. 

Gala Darling.

Then Oberjean linked to Gala Darling. Gala is somebody who I would describe as the original Zoella, just with witchcraft and a recipe for self love. She posted about her Filofax love affair that same year. (Click here to view.) She then followed up with a guide, almost as in ‘how to Filofax’; I particularly envy this bright pink, A5 organiser. So beautiful! (Click here to view.) 

On the Planner universe…

If you google ‘Filofax blog posts’, there are many, many pages. Two of my favourites are Well appointed desk (click here to view), and My Life As A Teacup. (Click here to view.) Everyone is different in their planning approach, so these posts were quite refreshing to see. They are so beautifully crammed also! 

And a planner staple?

Post to you soon,
