Arrival of the Medium Gillio Amica in dark navy and red&gold
Yes! It’s been such a long while, since my previous post…
I’ve been extremely busy with kids, social life and work. Also been spending a lot of my time on the Facebook Gillio Group Page…
I figured, I should really update the Blog, or leave it be or even quit. Thought of that a lot, as it’s very time consuming to keep this Blog up and running…
Well, there’s been a lot of changes lately. Last time I told you about the Filofax Buttercup? Can’t even remember.. I’ve been also selling a lot of my Filofaxes!!! Even almost all of my Maldens! How crazy is that! Hope I won’t get sellers remorse, as there won’t be any second chances on the Maldens…
- Grey A5 Malden (again to Crystal. She also purchased it in personal size… congrats Crystal!)
- and a lot others!
I will be also selling:
- (this is kinda hard on me) My Personal sized Malden in Ochre! (I just need the funds for my Gillios…)
- Finsbury large wallet in black (did I even tell you about that one?)
- Pocket Malden in Ochre; up for grabs too
- Maybe…. my Grey Osterley.
I’ve gotten rid of all of my A5′s. The only one I still own is the A5 Regency. This is the ‘compact’ one as the rings are smaller and it doesn’t have a clasp. I don’t mind that at all! I was looking for a thinner A5 and I just love the Regency! It’s one of my all time favorites!
So onto the newbies
Gillio Amica Medium Size in Red and Gold
The red looks more pinkish here, but it’s really lovely, lipstick red. Love it!
The gold looks a bit darker on the pic, however it’s a lovely shade of gold! Love the bi color on this Amica! It’s my favorite and probably best organizer ever.
There’s a stiffener present, but it doesn’t bother me. I like my binders with a bit more structure. The Compagna (except for the croco ones), is a bit too floppy for my liking.
Yet, it’s still flexible, has a lot of give and it’s actually a little wider than the compagna’s and most personal size Filofaxes. Really, really like that! Feels like a whole lot of leather!
Love using this! A real workhorse such as the Maldens. The rings are a tat wider and the binder itself (width) too.
And the dark navy Amica with gold rings and popper
I’m in the red/gold one for weeks now and still love it. Can’t seem to move out of that one! Not even for the Buttercup…
Also looking for the next Amica in medium. Perhaps the one in Ostrich, as I just love Ostrich, but I’m really fond of this lay out and such.. The Buttercup is just different, although it’s real Ostrich and lovely… Hmmm what to do?
I’ve recently purchased a Pocket Amica in the lovely Burgundy color with gold rings and popper.I found this beauty on the Buy as is section by Gillio. That’s an old showroom model and may have some discolorations and such. It’s reduced in price and mostly the final one they have in stock. I was already considering a pocket in burgundy (new) when this popped up on Facebook. I just couldn’t help myself. I’ll use this as my satellite planner. Just to keep my appoitments with me (using week on 2 pages Gillio inserts), some notepaper, some information.
Can’t wait! This baby will be in tomorrow!!!
Hope you enjoyed and see you next time!
