I know It’s been waaaay too long since I’ve posted on this Blog. Perhaps I’ve been to occupied with the Facebook Gillio group which is such a great group to be part of.. and it’s very entertaining and also a bit time consuming But in a good way that is!!!
Well, I thought you guys and gals deserve an update to whatever is going on at the moment. As I posted in a previous post I’m clearing my collection (read here). Selling a lot of Filofaxes, but also my lovely Mulberry in Oak (agenda size) that’s still available.
In the Gillio department I added the lovely and super squishy and soft Mia Cara dark brown in Pocket size. And for work I replaced the A5 Osterley (also for sale!!) in brown by the Mia Cara A5 in gold!!! (with gold everything!)
The Gillios are just lovely and I was already onto the next Gillio purchase as I’m currently back in a Persona/Medium size again. Today it’s the Personal Regency in Brown. This one I’ll always love and probably never sell. I do have a Personal black Regency for sale (a bought a second one, but the love to me is with the brown one and; who neeeeds that many Regencys anyway?).
Here is how it happened…
Lovely don’t you think?
In this bag are 3 compartments and I wanted something more slim to put in here. The Mia is stuffed!! Also, I’m always torn between pocket size and personal/medium size and I felt I needed a bit more sheet space. So, I went back into the Regency. I also started using the black Gillio Medium Compagna in Croco as my stay at home one. As it’s really stuffed with information and what not. The in-my-bag FF or Gillio has to stay thin and lean. The Personal Regency is perfect!!!
So.. what’s this post about?
Well, I need some help here… I can pick my own Christmas present (oh, how romantic! lol) and decided I wanted to go for another Pippa Bag by Modalu as I just love, love, love these. I was thinking the lipstick red with matching purse or the black croco might be good additions to the current ‘collection’. They have these Christmas bundles online. You can find them here. Already told the hubby about this upcoming purchase aka his gift to me for Christmas and he was totally supportive on this. Nice!
My current Pippa doesn’t need replacing at all. It’s still as good as brand new and in excellent condition. I’d like (one day) a black one if this appears to be THE BAG for me. There are so many compartments so can organize like crazy!!! Same flexibility as any organizer of Filofax. So yeah, I’ll probably will use this particular bag for a very long, long time! So, investing in say, a different color (black would be an obvious choice) would not be bad. Not at all!
However…do I need, at this point another Pippa????
So, here are the options;
A. Pippa bag grab Shark and matching purse in Shark
B. Pippa bag Grab in Red with matching purse in Red
I realize the pictures are super tiny but I couldn’t find a better picture with both.. Check the link above if you want to see the bags on the Modalu website.
As they don’t have this exact bundle available for the black Croco Pippa it’s just a matter of ordering this by itself. I’d really like a black croco handbag. Never owned one before, but the bundles as mentioned above are pretty tempting as I already own a matching purse/handbag (my current Toffee). Which I just find super cute to carry around!
Drums… drums… drums…
The Filofax Personal Buttercup (Ostrich quill).
You only have to read the description (source: Pens & Leather web shop)
Filofax Ostrich Personal Organizer Buttercup
Full quill ostrich leather adds rich and remarkable depth to this organizer. Sumptuous and soft yet definitely distinctive, the Filofax Ostrich organizer offers delightful touches to boot: its satin-lined interior pockets just feel so inviting to the touch with their silky finish. Inside, supple, quill-marked leather highlights essential details: a flat pocket with a hidden zip and easy-access, lined full-length pockets to slip in small papers or tickets.

Right: Flat pocket with hidden zip, two full-length, turned-edge pockets behind lined in satin, leather ring protector, plus leather pen loop.
I’ve started obsessing over this FF a while ago to be honest.. Then the obsession with this binder faded and I was happy with my faux ostrich; the Regency(s). But it’s just not the same compared to the real thing… And THESE Blog posts (enablers) didn’t help either!

So what do you guys think??
I’d love to hear from you!!! And I really, really promise to spend more time on the Blog the next few weeks
See you next time!
