My gorgeous pocket chameleon

As I mentioned earlier here is my post about my Mother's Day present.  When I wrote about the pocket chameleon in The Wants it was on sale on the Filofax UK website (half price) and I had a 20% off discount code.  The following week it was still on sale but they were also offering free shipping which made this real leather organiser £20 and the perfect Mother's Day gift for me.  I have taken quite a few pictures for you....

I love the colour and the pattern
The inside, it doesn't lay flat yet
Five card slots
The zip section for coins
Top view, the full width pocket for your notes
I haven't set it up yet but I will do it this week.  I will still be using my A5 Apex as my main planner because I love how much space it gives me, I will use this as my purse.  I have to sort out which cards and bits I need to transfer over into it and also which inserts will be useful.  I won't need a full diary in there but I might keep a couple of months at a time in it in case I need to keep track of any appointments etc when I am not at home.  I am glad I didn't go for a mini size Filofax in the end as this pocket one feels so small to me I don't think I could manage with a mini one.   I love how soft the leather is and how it smells, it really is a thing of beauty and I am so happy to add it to my Filofax family!

    1. My current purse is quite big but that gives me room to stuff it full of bits of paper, vouchers etc and its hard to close it so I'm hoping this one will make me throw things away as there is less room to hoard ;)

  3. Beautiful colour, I have a Finsbury in Raspberry too, and while I love the colour, I'm just not happy with the size. Which is a shame.

    1. That is a shame, is it too small?

    1. Thank you! I did love the blue colour the Finsbury came in but the size I would have needed was out of my price range. The raspberry colour is even nicer in person than I was expecting, I have fallen for it!
