My New Filofax Malden


GLOSSette here! I recently picked up a new Filofax at Winners because I was sick of having a brown or black Filofax. I wanted some color in my life and possibly a new Filofax to fall madly in love with again. I did do a video showing you how much I love my malden aka Maddy and some few changes to how I set it up so CHECK IT OUT! For me it’s just easier to film then to take tons of pictures and edit them to make them look nice and presentable. Thank you to my good friend and blogger/Youtuber for showing me how she edits her pics.

One of the things I didn’t mention was how the Filofax I was using (personal Ranger) was getting heavy to bring with me everywhere. Not only did I stuff it to the fullest, the leather itself is pretty heavy since it is rugged faux leather. Maddy is very light and easy to carry around even tho she is fatter than fattest can be. She is also very flexible allowing me to fill it up with tons of inserts.

I just hope these pictures do justice. It just hard to take pictures at night but what can I do… I am so busy.

Filofax Saved My Life!

GLOSSette here!!! Was meaning to post this when it happened few weeks ago but I just got to busy juggling two part-time jobs. You know its harder doing two part-time jobs than to do one full-time job. If you’ve been there done that then you know what I mean. Anywhoo, if you are down for a story time…. well you’ve come to the right place.

A month ago on a Saturday I was nannying a 4.5 year old boy. Usually I would drive to their house but since my mom’s car needs fixing (if you have been a avid follower of my blog you’d know) I had to transit. Taking a bus and a skytrain is fine since skytrains run every 3 to 5 mins. This was the first time in my life I had to get somewhere by 3 busses. You can’t really predict the timing when you are taking a bus. My second bus left the station late and it was also during rush hour.


I ended up getting to my third bus late. And that bus only runs every half hour. I had the lady’s cell number on my phone so I called her every couple of minutes but she didn’t pick up. Luckily I was carrying my Filofax with me so I had her home number in the contacts section. Who said its lame to jot down contact via paper and pen??!! It saved my life. She came and picked me up even tho was 10 mins after I was supposed to be at their house.

Moral of the story… carry your Filofax with you everywhere and don’t feel lame or old school about using the contacts section.

My Filofax Week 9

GLOSSette here!!! I can’t believe I’ve made it through more than 2 months of using the same diary layout. WOOT! This week I tried getting back to my Filofax. I don’t like writing in it too much in advance in case things change. But I also get so tired the night before that I don’t feel like writing in my Filofax. So…. I write in it first thing in the morning when I’m enjoying my cup of coffee and watching Youtube videos. Monday I had to cover with a sheet of blank paper because it didn’t like it the way I wrote in it before. Friday I wrote a mini packing list cuz I was going to the States the next day for shopping. If the list was any longer I would attach a sticky note instead of writing it in the day.

I can’t wait for the 2013 cotton cream week on two page diary. I already added couple weeks of January into my Filofax. I loved it since I first got it because it has even spaces per day and a notes section. BUT I didn’t realize till a few days ago (when I added it to my FF) that the quality of the paper is way better. Hopefully there will be less show through. I get show through from highlighting over the text. Anywhoo without further ado here is my week 9!

My Filofax Week 8

GLOSSette here!!! This week is another normal week not much going on. But on Monday I did have another Starbucks drink and I love all the holiday stuff especially the Caramel BrulĂ© Latte. What is/are your favorite drink? Also on the side is a sneak peek of my Christmas Planner tab. I have been working on it since Saturday and is all done and ready to use. I will do a video on it this if you haven’t already start planning for Christmas. If you are having people over for a meal or two you should start NOW!
