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 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 ...

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 ...

Japanese stationery lust

I spent a happy hour in a local Tokyu Hands store here in Hiroshima yesterday. And in doing so, I basically cleared them out of their entire stock of Midori Traveler's notebooks and accessories. (No, not really - it just looked that way...) I finally got a traveler's notebook, a passport notebook and a whole ...

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, ...
