I bought the darker brown A5 Divino a few weeks ago but it arrived with a set of three rings. I had chosen the darker brown over the lighter one but in my excitement I had not paid attention to the ring system. When it arrived I saw that it had three rings and I would have preferred six because all my refills are Filofax. So Victor gave me a choice – to swap the darker brown with three rings for the lighter brown with six rings, or for him to send me another set of rings which I could replace myself. You really gotta love binders with replaceable rings! It is really easy to change rings and the click you hear when the system slots into place is almost like hearing money coming out of an ATM – bliss!
I took option A AND option B. Here is the result. And a big thank you to Victor from Luxe as both of these arrived within four days.
I have some rather large changes in my life at the moment which mean that my planner needs will be changing. At the moment I am working as a language consultant which means a lot of bookings and scheduling and notes made on the run, because I am ‘out in the field’ all day. So for that I need a personal sized planner with notepaper for notes and lists, two sets of week on two pages (one for daily to dos and one for bookings) and pocket constellations enabling me to use it as a wallet.
From 15 September I will also be working full-time as a translator for a large project. This is in addition to the job above. This will mean keeping very strict notes on my hours and the project and I will be in one place (allowing me to use an A5).
I am also attempting to make efforts to improve my health – I am lucky I have a strong immune system but when I am busy I don’t eat properly, forget to take vitamins and neglect myself. So this is going to help me create better habits – it takes 21 days to change a habit and I intend to.
The pale one looks to be gold epoca and the darker one looks to be brown epoca but I am not sure how old these planners are so they may be other colours entirely. They cost €199 each from Luxecadeautjes and postage was about €8. I am operating on a one in one out policy at the moment so these are replacing my A5 grey Malden and my A5 brown Kendal.
