Filofax - File of Facts

I have been hearing this name for the past months when I was researching about 
Midori Traveler's Notebooks. 

The last time I own a filofax style of diary was like 20 years ago.
It was a "MUST-HAVE" item for every student back then.
It was a Good-to-have, but Troublesome to carry around.
Most of the Filofax I had were too thick, and big, to carry around. 
Beside the size, another reason is that 
my handwriting style doesn't allow me to write on Filofax,
because the 6-rings binder gets in the way!!!

But...... in 2014,
I got a new Filofax style dairy from my best pal.

It's a Starbucks 2014 planner.
(In order to get it, you need to top up SGD$120 onto the Starbucks card)

I love the look of it - Sexy and professional.  

Taking a look inside.

Argh... the 6-rings binder.
I've tried using it for a few times, 
but it's just doesn't suit me.

Despite my non-liking for Filofax style dairy / journal, 
I still enjoy looking at how users personalize their Filofax.

 Maybe somedays, I might return to Filofax.

Video: Sophie Hurden and her Traveler's Notebooks.

After the first video post about Jess Torina's Midori Traveler's Notebook,
I've been searching for videos about how other users use their Traveler's Notebooks.
I also have a fair share of users sharing their videos with me.

So, today, let us see how Sophie Hurden uses her Traveler's Notebooks. 
But before we watch the video, I've asked Sophie some questions,
that we all are curious to know:

(1) How do you started with Midori Traveler's Notebook (MTN)?

My new Navy Blue Cover by Cody Williams.

When Cody came to Singapore (as I shared in the previous) post, 
he brought me a new leather cover, and a pair of stationeries (Zebra 701 series). 

Thanks again Cody.

A meet up with Cody Williams!!

If you follow my earlier post, New Year, New Leather Cover, you will know that 
Cody is the guy who made me my EEDC (Essential Every Day Carry) - My Leather notebook cover.
