Falling in love...with a Gillio Firenze :o))

It all began in April,when we started our shopping-tour after we finished our first Filofax-meetup..
We had a coffee (or two,or three...)at "Die Kaffee Rösterei" in Hamburg.In the same house (Levantehaus) they have a nice shop,called "Dössel und Rademacher",who have a small collection of very nice binders: Filofaxes,Succes and Gillio!I fell in love with a medium sized Gillio,but ....uuuuh...the price :o/
When I got home I googled them...oh,oh,oh...but I resisted...until Mella (one of our fb-members+youtuberin) posted a video about her planner: A medium sized Croco-Compagna *sigh*...that`s where all the craziness began!!The guys from Gillio contacted Mella,she spend a day in their shop....filmed a video,showing us 9 different planners - and we got a promotion code!!25% off!!YAY!!!
I knew that I MUST get one of these beautiful,gorgeous binders...but croco or non-croco??So I went to "Dössel und Rademacher" again.They had 3 medium sized Compagna there: Honey/Croco,brown and black non-croco.It was a hard desicion.....I decided to get one that already captured my heart in Mellas video: A black/brown Compagna.I emailed Gillio several times (hehehe),chatted with them - and finally Tom sent me an email saying :"Yes you will get THE Gillio,that Mella showed in her video,it is still here!"JUHUUUUUUU!!!!


                                                      I love the rustique look of the leather.......

 It has just one penloop (elasticated!),but you can easily clip another pen to the clasp,because it has a lot of give ;o)

                                                ....such a BEAUTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 A zipped pocket on the left,another full lenght pocket+ a small pocket for cards......
                                                                    A flap,or secreterial pocket!!!
A patch of leather to protect the inserts....oh and THE SMELL!!!!Aaaaaawe :o))
All the "parts of leather"inside this binder are gorgeous soft,just as this patch of leather!

                                                       Creditcardslots on the right side......................
                                              ..................another flap :o))
                                              A huuuuuge "wallet-pocket"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                                              You can EASILY fit A5 papers into that pocket :o))
                                   The ringsize is a bit bigger than the most Personal Filofaxes....
I moved in,with all of my old inserts,but the original inserts are gorgeous,too!Think they might be worth another post,when I had time to get used to them ;o)

                                 this one is made to be stuffed :o))
                                                        I AM IN LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you "Gillio Firenze" made me finally sell all my "unloved"stuff,that filled up my cellar...because I will get a compagnon to the Compagna soon :o)

Oh...and my first video about it,a little chaotic ;o))

Another sexy red Filofax: The Personal Amazona :o))

I have waited 5 painful long weeks for this precious,beautiful binder to arrive...!
Then I moved in,for several weeks - it is soooooo beautiful!!I love the touch of the pattern,so nice& puffy!
While I was waiting for this beautiful thing,I purchased the red pocket and mini-Amazona for a very,very nice price...and also in A5!!!YAY!!! are the pics :o)) and the link to my video

                                              The pattern is sooooo nice to touch......
                                   has two penloops *YAY*!!!!!!
     Enough the front I have this zipped envelopes with some sticky flowers from Karina :o)
                                      I am using the inserts I made for the personal Baroque......
                                          My week on two pages................................
                                           Pen on top of the zipper..................
                                                         The zipped pocket..........................

                                         ......................a piece of beauty :o))

Sexy red Filofax:The Personal Malden in crimson :o))

Oh,oh...the facebook-group is not good for me :o))
Sweet Karine posted pics of her crimson Malden - and it blew me away!!!I couldn`t think about anything but her "Carl Malden".I just couldn`t believe,that she cheated him after a short time with her new purple Malden ;o))
Sooo...I was on fire :o)
Finally I found this one :

                                                        The colour is sooooo beautiful!!!

                                           My current setup :o)
                                          I have chosen this beautiful Vogue-postcard-theme :o)
                                          First section : Personal information ;o)
                                            2.section : Different calendars!
                                          And for the first time I ordered this 4-color pen...and LOVE it!!
                                           My working-scedule....
                                            For privat appontments I use the month on 2 pages...
                                             Yearly planning for hollidays...
                                                 And the week on two pages :o)

                                           This pretty Lady will lead me to my to-do-section...
                        ...because of  the magnetic bookmark I`ll get to this section with my eyes closed ;o)
                                                The notes-section :o)

                                          And the adress-section...
                                          ...some gift-cards and a paper-pad...
                                                      This binder looks soooooo yummie!!!!
There should have been a blogpost about the red Personal Amazona  today,but after using it for several weeks,I moved into the crimson Malden,just when it arrived - and forgot to do the photo-shooting first...
But it will show up soon :o))
