My new Filofax arrived today! I've been waiting for a year for an A5 Domino in a purplish color, so of course I couldn't resist ordering up the A5 Domino in the new Ultra Violet color. I'm extremely glad I was able to get it before I leave for Indonesia! (Which is just two weeks from today, and yes I'm slightly freaking out. Need Filofax distraction!)
click here to see the Filofax UK A5 Domino product page and hover on Ultra Violet to see the color).
Here are some photos comparing my A5 Domino in Ultra Violet on the left, my A5 Finsbury in purple in the middle, and my Personal size Domino in Grape at the right, to give you a color reference.
The A5 Domino came loaded with a July 2011-December 2012 horizontal week on two pages (AWESOME) and ALSO a 2011 vertical week on two pages with the days as columns! Thank you Filofax!!
Inside the July 2011- December 2012 weekly pages there are Course Record and Timetable pages that would be handy for students (or teachers, parents, and anyone else who keeps track of students). There are also pages of holidays for lots of countries for 2011 and 2012. I was very excited to find that all the holidays for Indonesia for both years are listed! There are also pages that list Notable Dates and Religious Holidays for various religions for all of 2011 and 2012. These are very handy reference pages!
Also loaded on the rings are A-Z tabs, 1-6 tabs, several pages of colored paper, address pages, To Do forms, a black ruler page marker and a clear top-opening envelope. It is very nicely kitted out and has everything you need to get started on your plans for world domination.
The inside of the interior pockets is lined with purple fabric, which is much more purple than my photo shows. (I wish the cover were the purple color of the pocket lining.) The Domino has a great interior layout with card pockets and a full-length pocket behind, and a notepad inside the back cover. And the A5 Domino has two elastic pen loops to hold pens of any size!
The A5 Domino binders are great because the cover is very lightweight and the rings are huge, so you can really load it up and it still doesn't weigh as much as a filled leather binder.
I have an A5 Domino in red that I bought last year, which you can read about here. (And if you do click through to that post, you'll notice my last line was, "If they come out with a purple one you can bet I'll get it!" True to my word!!) As much as I love my other A5 Domino, I always wished for a color that's more "me." (As my husband says, I'm not a "red" person.)
Even though the Ultra Violet isn't as purply as I would prefer, it's still a really beautiful color. In fact, I have to be honest and say that this color is more professional-looking than a very purply purple would be. I would be happy to use this binder at work or home. I'm very glad to have it!
In fact, I love this new Filofax so much it's already throwing me into a planner quandary. This is definitely a possibility as my Planner for my New Life in Indonesia!
