Bring back the Filofax

March 1, 2010

Much to my joy, I read an article on the, entitled ‘The Filofax is back’. ‘YESSS!’ I thought, I am on trend, I am ahead of the times, as I am, and have been the proud owner of a gorgeous pink leather Filofax for two years now. Hell, I’m a veteran. I then happily tweeted about my exciting news, to which I had several replies, mostly from women, saying they too were Filofax owners.

But could my Filofax replace my BlackBerry?? Not so sure… The article on the Telegraph suggests that many women are turning to their Filofaxes, and favouring them over their iPhones and BlackBerrys because they’re more feminine.

I love my Filofax, and can’t imagine going anywhere without it. It has everything in there, from work related events, to personal appointments, to people’s phone numbers, and even a handy fold out Tube map (with protective plastic sheet I might add!). But I see it as a supplement to my BlackBerry. I can write stuff in my Filofax, but from there on I can’t do much with it. I need something technological to assist my Filofax. It can’t email someone, or text them, or send a meeting reminder to someone.

Still, the brand lives on, and I’m proud to say I will always have one. It looks gorgeous, it’s super handy and works on a personal and professional level for me. But would I have it as a replacement for a multi-functional device? Probably not. It’s more like a handy assistant 🙂

30 minutes on the Tube

November 17, 2008


‘Travel with style’, is a phrase I always try to keep in mind whenever I frequent public transport. I apply this to my coat, shoes, handbag, and then accessories. This includes my phone – phones plural now actually, as I recently acquired a BlackBerry – something I’m really starting to like.

However, I was browsing the internet today at work, and I noticed an announcement about the ‘credit crunch phone’.  The new Samsung B130 costs just £4.95. £4.95!! Amazing.

Despite times being hard though – do we really want to sacrifice style when for about £50 more you could get a reasonably better looking phone? Who in their right mind would want to whip out a phone that looks like this on their daily commute, when it would ruin the rest of their stylish attire?

Call me shallow, but these things are important to some people – myself included!
