For the love of paper planning
I don't need a pink Apex...I don't need a pink Apex...I don't need a pink Apex...
Oh I am such an addict.Under the pretense of educating a soon to be public health registrar about filofaxes I had a good browse at lunchtime. I am not keen on the aqua chameleon (will need to see in person) but the vintage pink malden looks lovely.I really hate the Apex! What were they thinking?
@ Annie oops sorry!Am I forgiven?
@caribbean princess hahaa, you are forgiven, considering I like it because it looks weird. I don't get on with my Domino with the elastic strap, so I'm telling myself I can't get an Apex as it will have the same issues.
@ Annie, :-)I think I don't like it because it is so weird! If you aren't keen on the Domino elastic then you may not like that feature on the Apex. The lavender metropol is pretty and affordable though!
@caribbean princess The Lavander Metropol is very sweet, but I'll be sticking with my Purple Finchley. I spent a lot of money and hassle getting her, so I'm not about to buy a new binder any time soon, no matter how tempting they are!
It's such a shame that the green Apex has a pink clasp! I've been hoping for a nice green filofax to get my dad for ages :(
Ooh is the Vintage Pink Malden not available in Personal size? Very sad face....On the plus side this could be a new work Filo...hmmm watch out Neal Street :)
@ Annie, I too am trying self- talk, and self-hypnosis!!!! As in ...... I don't need a vintage pink Malden, I don't need a vintage pink Malden, I don't need a vintage pink Malden!!!PS- I had a Domino personal many moons ago, and fell out of love with the stretch strap too!!!!
@katie have you thought about a green windsor? i have one in the personal style i like it.here is one on ebay that ended recentlyhttp://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Green-leather-pocket-Windsor-Filofax-/300522589982#ht_500wt_1071and minehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/justenoughsalt/4797719584/i really like the look of the apex though like you i wish they had gone with something other than pink as the accent color
@Colie Thank you! I'll have to have a look out for another going on sale
I've already promised myself that if I'm still using my A5 Filofax as my planner by summer I'll get an A5 Malden in Vintage Pink. There's incentive to stick with my Filofax!
Well theoretically it should save me a fortune - but I really don't like any of the new colourways or binders and I am in mourning over some of the filo's they have dropped. I'm obviously not on the same wave length as their designer!
Same here, Alison. Maybe I have outgrown their current target group ...Loulou: the Personal Malden in Vintage Pink is going to come, but maybe at a later stage?
For those of you that you have out grown the current trend , i suggest looking at the Aston it's very smiliar to the Finsbury but with a little more accents in the leather the scarlet (purple) has contrasting light pink stitching. The Apex i think they are targeting more of the college and university kids with it.
Hmmm... I'm mostly with Alison, and definitely with CP - I don't like the Apex...But...The Malden in A5... leather and 30mm rings... hmmm... might be tempted.
Only positive about the Apex is that it has an academic year diary grrrrrrrrrrr!!!! Why oh why is this not available from Filofax for other binders I wonder???? Have had to buy one from WH Smith!!!! On that note, as @ R says it is possibly because the Apex is targeted at student users.
