Filofax Inspiration #7

It’s already number 7 in the Filofax Inspiration series! Today I thought I would update you on my planner, rather than sharing inspiration from elsewhere.

I am still using my A5 Domino Filofax planner in pink. I like this planner as it has an elastic closure (meaning it can be stuffed really full) and it also lays flat when opened.

I change my planner style every few months. At the moment it is decorated with kawaii stationery starting with this Rilakkuma bear charm I received in my Kawaii subscription box.


Plain notes are just boring, so I got some Rilakkuma sticky notes for the front section of the planner.


Artbox is a great shop for stickers and notelets. I like to keep a selection in a stationery box on my desk for planner decorating (usually on a Sunday for the week ahead).


How cute are these cat stickers?! I’m honestly never going to stop loving stickers. So childlike haha! I told G that if he wanted to just buy me a load of stickers for my birthday this year that would make me happy. STICKER NERD ALERT.


I don’t do Project Life journalling, but I do buy the cards as the selections are great and they can be used for all sorts of things. I like to stick one Project Life card in my planner per week to either write a list or quote on. Hobbycraft have some themed packs on sale at the moment.


I usually use washi tape to decorate my Filofax planner and stick with a theme and colour scheme each week. I’m getting back into practising gratitude by writing a list of “happy things” for the week. I find this really useful for positive thinking.


Pens of choice at the moment are the Pilot Frixion Erasable Rollerball and this flowery black fine liner which I think I got from The idea Owl.


I no longer write a weekly to-do list for the planner, but instead have a seperate notebook for Bullet Journalling. It’s my first month trying this task management system so I’ll let you know how I get on. I may integrate this back into my planner at some point.

As always, please link up any Filofax Inspiration in the comments below and if you are a Bullet Journaller please let me know any tips or tricks!

Kawaii Stationery Haul

I’ve recently been getting more into kawaii themed items, specifically kawaii stationery. There aren’t many physical UK stores selling decent stationery (anyone else bored of Paperchase and WH Smiths?!) and I’m constantly getting jealous of the goodies some US bloggers find! Target dollar bin especially.

However, I recently came across the Kawaii Box subscription service. The boxes contain surprise goodies from Japan and Korea and are delivered monthly. The June box contained some great kawaii stationery and little trinkets.

The burger sticker went on G’s plate when it was turkey burger night in our house!


I also frequent The Idea Owl’s feed on Instagram. Donna allows you to put a package together by commenting on items you wish to add. It’s a dangerous way to shop, but the items are too good to miss.


Page markers are a must for my Filofax and if they are sweet themed I’m happy.


I think I will never grow out of my sticker obsession.


I like to keep my writing paper collection well stocked.


Donut sticky notes?! Yes please. I also got some Rilakkuma post it notes but I cannot find where I put them!


I also recently topped up my craft punch collection as Hobbycraft had a great sale. The mini pencil stapler was about £1 from Staples. Did you see my recent post with tips on how to sharpen craft punches?


This little fella was in the Kawaii box. Too cute. I’m sure if I ever visit Japan I will need to save for a year, just to buy stationery and plushies.


Pocky is a major obsession in our house. G got loads when he went to Tokyo a few years back. One of my favourite things in the Kawaii box was this little pill pot. It makes taking migraine meds a lot easier and cheerier!


The subscription box also included some pretty lace shoe laces. I think they look pretty nifty in my mint converse, don’t you?


Have you found any good Kawaii stationery stores? Please share in the comments below. As if I need any more excuses to shop!

Filofax Inspiration #6

It’s time for the 6th post in the Filofax Inspiration series! This month I’ve been enjoying the content of some fellow planner nerds online and want to share them with you. As always, please share any recommendations or links in the comments below.

The lovely Happy Scrappie Instagram feed is so inspiring for Filo geeks! With over 10K followers there is a reason for checking out Sam’s beautiful planner pics.

You can also visit the Happy Scrappie store online to get your planner deco fix.

My next recommendation is a Filofax YouTuber named Alexis who goes by the name of Miss Trenchcoat, Alexis shares planner tips and stationery finds, as well as lifestyle tips and tech advice.

A wonderful stationery store I recently discovered was Fox and Star who also have a store on Etsy. Of course I got some washi tapes. I’ve been looking for the map one ever since I went to Vancouver a couple of years back.



And my final inspiration is another Instagram find – The Idea Owl. Donna sells the cutest kawaii stationery and decor for your planner as well as tons of snail mail goodies. You can start a package and comment on any thing you would like added. Watch this space for a haul post soon!
