Moleskine for Evernote: The satisfaction of a well-made notebook

I mentioned previously that I recently picked up one of Moleskine's Evernote notebooks - long after they were first introduced, so I'm not blazing any trails in this area! Essentially, these notebooks are created with the note-taking app in mind, allowing you to scan them into the app with your iPhone's camera. After a week of ...

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 ...

Just one or two bags…

A few weeks ago, @FrankDJS was reorganising the cupboard in our hallway. He kindly illustrated just how many of my bags were taking up valuable space by laying them out on the floor in front of me.  I have to admit I felt a mixture of pride and shame. After all, there are some nice ...

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, ...

Review: Knomad Mini Portable Organiser

I've been using the very lovely Knomad Mini Portable Organiser from Knomo for the last week. It's something I've had my eye on for some time and, after a good month on the work front, I decided to treat myself. What is it? It's built to carry an iPad Mini, along with the carious other ...

Even more tempted now…

Gah! I'm even more tempted to buy the new 'Original' organiser from Filofax now. Shortly after I posted about my thoughts on this model last night, Steve from Philofaxy tweeted to say he'd have a review of the A5 model up on his site this morning. Well now I've read it and I'm more convinced ...

Tempted…

Just when I thought I'd kicked the Filofax habit, they go and launch yet another personal organiser I'd like. The A5 Fusion I bought some weeks ago is still doing a great job. And paired with my iPad mini, it makes for an excellent "mobile office". But Filofax have just launched a new leather model ...

Return to paper, week one

Stationery nerd klaxon! I've had my new Filofax one week and it's barely been out of reach. A stack of meetings and a two-day course on Thursday and Friday meant it was invaluable for extensive note-taking. The fact the Fusion has a pocket large enough to hold my iPad Mini is the icing on the ...
