My Japanese stationery haul

One thing I always enjoy about my visits to Japan is seeing what interesting and unique stationery I can come home with. In all my international travels, I've never encountered stationery stores like the ones in Japan - it appears to be a bit of a national obsession! I have two favourite places to pick ...

My trip to the Traveler’s Factory, Japan

It may sound strange, but one of my highlights of last month's visit to Japan was getting to visit the Traveler's Factory store in Tokyo. They stock the (formerly Midori) Traveler's Notebook products that I've been obsessing about over the last year, so I was determined to visit their 'HQ' and see the various products ...

My battered Midori Traveller’s Notebook

My lovely black Midori Traveler's Notebook, part of the massive haul of stationery I picked up on our last trip to Japan, has been in the wars. After a few months of daily use (and I mean daily) it was carelessly thrown into a bag alongside an iPad charger and came off second-best against the plug's ...

A brief Midori update

So, as I excitedly wrote last October, I picked up quite the collection of Midori Traveler's Notebooks and accessories when I was in Japan. This required a trip to a branch of Tokyu Hands in each of the cities we visited! But it was definitely worth it, as Tokyu Hands stores are treasure troves of ...

Joining the Midori gang

I think it's fair to say, I went a bit mad buying stationery while in Japan. I had one big item on my list: a Midori Traveler's Notebook. Once I'd got that, courtesy of Tokyu Hands in Hiroshima, I spent far too much time picking up various inserts for the notebook, as well as stickers, ...

A developing Knomad addiction

I love my Knomad mini, as is apparent from this post. It's incredibly handy for traveling, keeping my passport and iPad safe and looks good too. Too good, perhaps... Since that last post, my Knomad collection has grown, worryingly. I now have a black leather Knomad built for an iPad Air, the same model in ...

Reviewing the Filofax Pennybridge iPad case

I'm working away from home all this week and, in an effort to pack as light as possible, I stripped back on the tech and Filofaxes, simply taking an iPad mini, an A5 Moleskine notebook and the Filofax Pennybridge iPad Mini case. The latter neatly holds the iPad in a flexible shell, while also holding an ...

Review: Filofax Fusion iPad Air Organiser

The lovely chaps at Filofax sent me a new organiser to test drive. So, after using it for a couple of weeks, I'm sharing my thoughts on it. But in case you don't make it to the end of the post, my ultimate verdict is: I like it a lot and would recommend it. I got ...

Mixing digital and paper…again

While out at Ryman's stocking up on home office supplies, I stumbled across this little beauty. It's a combined Filorax / iPad Air case and I snapped it up immediately. (My 20% off coupon, courtesy of @FrankDJS, made this decision a lot easier). It takes A5 Filofax paper and accessories, which fit into a completely ...
