Ok so when I spoke about my resolutions and aims this year, the biggest one I set myself was to become more organised. So this was an excuse to get some cute stationary, while I plan my days away and the wedding. So my filofax finally got delivered yesterday, and it is super cute. It’s from Kikki K which does the cutest stationary my only flaw against them was that because they are an Australian company I had to pay £20 to get it released from customs at Parcel force. Extortionate, but I guess it isn’t overly there fault. But the cuteness is worth it.
I am totally old school went it comes to keeping track of everything. I had the same filofax for 5 years while I worked and while I was at uni, I decided to upgrade last year but couldn’t find one I liked, so just made do with a disposable diary for last year. Then I came across this. I suppose because so much of our time is based on our phones and laptops, tracking the ever growing technology and social medias it sometimes nice to just write down appointments and track your daily life using pen and paper. I find having a cute outlet, will make becoming more organised easier.
So I know this post isn’t overly wedding like, but as well as my daily planner I have also got a wedding planner, but it’s not your typical one.
So as some of you know, Richard proposed to me in Italy, read it here, and a couple of days after, we were walking around a little town when I came across this small little book shop where the woman working there was making books in front of you. So I have seen the cute planners going round which helps you plan your wedding but I kind of liked the idea of buying this book, in Italy where we got engaged, makes it that little bit more special no? The paper used is just beautiful and I am in love with the marble cover.
So I haven’t filled it up too much, as we all know my pace for planning, but I thought i’d show you the first page which has a polaroid of me and Richard taking the day after he proposed, taking in the same little town where we brought the book. I think regarding my way of executing this book, I am doing a more scrap book idea, something that maybe our kids in the future, would like to see, and a memory keep of my slow but hopefully fabulous wedding planning..
Perhaps as a goal for me I will show you guys a page a month, just to prove I am planning…
Enjoy your Wednesday’s all
