My Pocket Portobello Filofax

Soooooooo, I got into Filofax about a year ago when I bought an A5 Domino to use for my university work, but now that I've finished I decided to down-size to a pocket.

I got it on eBay for £14 including postage (Happy Bunny!)
I've had it for about a month now so I'm still working out what way I like having things.

I clearly love post it's and colour-coded pens. Oh and stickers! Stickers are good :)

It came with cream inserts, but I didn't like them so I bought these ones from Paperchase for £4.
I like writing things like appointments & work times in green. Tv show and entertainment in blue, other things in black and the orange number are how much I spent that day; if it has brackets I payed by card or paypal if not it was cash. I use post it's for to do lists and extra little notes.

The Domino now lies empty in a draw; poor thing.

Say cheese . . . .

I have this annoying habit. If there is a flat usable surface in my bedroom I will inevitably fill it with clutter. (Does anyone else have a floordrobe?) I tried tackling this problem when I recently redecorated my bedroom; I had a clear out of old stuff I don't need any more; less stuff mean less clutter right ?

Anyway, one of the things I now love about my bedroom is that I can display some of my old cameras.

This has made me want to run through all the cameras i own;

This is an old Kodak Brownie Box c. 1930, it takes 120 roll film.

This is an old coronet ambassador c. 1955.It takes 120 roll film and makes a 6x9 frame.

This needs no words really. A Polaroid camera. It's annoying that the only film packs avilabile atm are so expencive. 

This is an Olympus trip 35, a 35mm camera with a fixed lens.

This is my video camera. Its a Hitachi pocket camcorder. It has a touch screen and takes photos as well as HD videos

This is my sony a200. It's a 10 megapixel DSLR with an 18-70mm lens.

And there we have it, my little babies :)
