Gillio Mia never dies!

This Fall started very exiting,with a new BIG love,a chunk of beautiful printed leather:
I am back in love with a medium Mia Cara!
2 years ago,during our Gillio-meetup,it happened that I found myself holding a medium Mia Cara in my shaking hands....a fuschia mat croco.I must say that the Mia is very well dressed up,in that mat croco printed leather!It looks and feels reeeaally good on her.
I ended up not buying that one,but I never forgot that squishy,big and chunky feeling in my hands.

Now it happened,that Team Gillio asked us admins to work with the new prints.We were asked to choose one review-sample,work with it,see how it wears and writing or filming a review...or 2.
I chose to work with a medium Mia,in this beautiful black mat croco.What a sophisticated appearance....I am still living the haptic meltdown,everytime I carry it in my hands...!
In this short time of 4 weeks,there is absolutely no wear on mine,besides the begin of a nice shine to the leather.
It still feels a bit stiff,when I open the lovely popper-pocket.
It is definately a huge chunk of a medium planner,that is for sure.It is heavier,due to all this lovely leather.I tried not to stuff it,so I used it along with my Slim-setup + some more notepapers,a Hamburg-map,another pouch-and I added 8 month from the past year to the calendar.
This will get a picture-heavy-post,where I will also show the red mat croco Slim Compagna,which carries 6 month week on 2 pages,12 month of month on 2 pages,birthday-calendar,2 sheets with tel.numbers and some spare sheets of paper.

The medium Mias will be released in the new prints,soon.
As I am also owning this croco print in different colours and planners,I can highly recomment them...and will show you the ones I own at the end of this post ;o)

I don`t carry any cards in my planner,because I don`t want them to get too stuffed...

Medium Mia Cara vs.Slim Compagna,in red mat croco!
As usual,the skins are all different (like our skins are different).
Each of my mat croco planners feels different.
All of them are "to die for" ;o)

The Slim fits snug inside the medium Mia ;o)

Some more of the new prints....brown mat croco Appunto....

A6 blue ostrich print on top of fuschia mat croco and brown mat croco (all A6 Appuntos)
The ostrich prints seem to be very durable and scratch-resistant.People who fear the DOT (Dark On Tab) - I don`t believe this can happen to this print ;o))
My favs are (still) the croco prints.

Older batches and prints + new batches and prints!
