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 ...

Brunch and shopping

Combined my two favourite pastimes earlier this morning: food and shopping. We walked from Canary Wharf up to Spitalfields Market and made a bee-line for The Diner. No breakfast, plus a walk in the muggy heat had us both hungry and thirsty. I fear I may have gone overboard with the order, as the photos ...

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 ...

A Filofax confession

Call it survival of the fittest, but I think my personal size Original has won out in the battle of the Filofaxes.I bought two of these beauties - one in personal size, one in A5. One for personal use, one for work. The personal model is with me day and night: a repository of membership ...

Another Original…

I got to unpack my latest Filofax acquisition today, days after it arrived. I've spent the last few days on business in Dublin, so it was a little frustrating to know my A5 Original in racing green was waiting for me at home. After delivering an all-day workshop, followed by a delayed flight back to ...

Inevitably, I succumbed…

After lusting after the new "The Original" organisers from Filofax since their launch, I finally gave in and bought one this afternoon. Inevitable, I know. Surprising myself, I opted for the Personal size over the A5. I'm planning to keep it for 100% personal use and keep work-related content in my A5 Fusion. (So yes, ...

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 ...
