That Thing Thursday #2

Hi everyone. Welcome to another installment of That Thing Thursday. This week I am going to vent about my Filofax failure.

Well it isn't actually my failure, but theirs. We have all experienced it I am sure at one point or another. Faulty rings, bad stitching, bottom of the barrel leather quality. Filofax just isn't what it used to be, and that is really disappointing.

EVERY single one of the Filofax binders I have or have had has had a problem with the exception of my compact blue Finsbury.

The strap on my personal aqua Chameleon is tearing, and the colour is fading. The personal Sketch my son uses has ring gaps, the personal Holborn my sister is borrowing has stitching issues.

I have decided to not invest anymore money into filofax until their quality control improves. I know I am not a big shot filofax blogger, and I have just a handful of amazing people that follow me, but I am still a customer who spends my hard earned money on something I expect to last longer than a month or two.

In closing this week I say this to Filofax...
I am sorry that at some point you decided that it was important to put out any product rather than putting out a quality product. I am just a mere customer however I will now be giving my business and loyalty to another company. If you ever decide to return to quality I may be back, but until then good luck in all your future endeavours.

That Thing Thursday

Well, this was supposed to launch last Thursday but I was completely tied up and couldn't get to it. In case you missed my post last week I have decided to do a weekly feature. I know a lot of other people do their week photo, but I usually do that on instagram, so I didn't really want to do it here too.

Thus, That Thing Thursday was born.

The first one I am going to do are the Self stick hot list notes by Daytimer. I absolutely love them. I got them with a daytimer I found at Winners. The planner itself was a bit awful, but the hot list is ahhh mazing.

This is what the hotlist looks like. The sticky bit is along the side where the check boxes are. I have never been a big chekcer-offer. I usually like to scratch off (see below lol) but I may get used to checking the box.

This is one in the front of my Filofax. I have a list of the things to get done around the house. It is getting a bit dog eared but it is still doing great. I have it stuck to a top opening envelope and it isn't leaving any residue behind like some (super sticky post-its come to mind)

I have decided to try and use these for a to-do list and I have stuck them to my clear today ruler. So far it is sticking really well. It even gives a small bit of writing room on the back side lol.
I am not sure how this 'feature' is going to go over. I am really excited about it, so I hope I can figure it out better lol.
Sorry I had to post the pictures from my Iphone blogger app. I still don't know how that thing works. Please leave me a comment below and tell me the sorts of things you would like reviews or opinions on. I can't promise I can get my hands on them, but I can certainly try my hardest.

My first weekly feature...THAT THING THURSDAY

I have seen many blogs and vlogs that feature a regular weekly feature, and I thought I would try to start my own. I was thinking of different ideas. A few people do 'my filofax week' type of thing, but I do something like that already on my instagram, so I didn't want to do that here as well. I saw a youtube video titled Thursday Thing (I think) so I thought I would do my own take on that one. So now


Each Thursday (I hope) I will feature some product on my blog, whether it is something I already own that I am totally loving at the moment, or something I recently got. Most things will be stationary related, but I may feature other things. I haven't decided yet.

I hope this feature is something that you will all enjoy. All your feedback is always heard and appreciated. So please stay tuned and check back in, this Thursday for the very first That Thing Thursday.

Thanks for stopping by,
