Filofax Finsbury Personal in it another go!

Well, here we go again......I'm giving my Finsbury another go. This time I am going to use it for a week at least, to see if I can really live in a snap closure binder. NO I'm not totally giving up my precious Holborn zip! Just want to give it a much deserved rest.

It still looks absolutely beautiful, and there are NO scratches or (**gasp**) tears on it, even though I carried it every day since I got it almost a year ago, in my bag! I just don't want it to get that way. SO comes the trial of the Finsbury again.

This color blue is SO beautiful that I really want to make it work, so we'll see how it goes this time. If nothing else, maybe I can at least get it broken in to almost lay flat. On a happy note, I did get both of my Bic four color pens to fit! So Yay for that! Filofax PLEASE make a zip binder in THIS color and either smooth or pebbled leather (as long as it doesn't fade or wear off)! If they did then it would probably be my one and ONLY binder!

I am hoping I will be able to work with it so I can carry it longer than a week. I am sorry, my beloved Holborn, but you really need a vacation from me, so enjoy it while it lasts because I will be excitedly waiting your return.....if I can last the whole week without you. (**sigh**)

Let the Holborn vacation begin, I shall miss you! (**runs off to sob**)


  1. I have the blue Finsbury, too. I used it for about a week and a half and then returned to my Aqua Chameleon. Only because it frustrated me (the stiffness of the pockets) and it did not lay flat. But I love the color and the smoothness of the leather. The color reminds me of beautiful tropical water! I don't know if the Finsbury is for me but I won't give up on it because the color is SO gorgeous. I will be giving it another try in another week or so. Good luck with yours. :) I've been also wanted to try a zip Holborn but can't decide if I want black or brown. I bought a black one with snap closure last year but returned it because it didn't do anything for me. I loved all the pockets and the soft leather but that was it. Maybe it was the black. I think if I get a zip in the near future it will be in the brown. I love the outside pocket and wish more Filofaxes came with one.

    1. Thanks for commenting Cheryl! I REALLY love the blue color, which is why I bought it to add to my collection. However, being a snap closure binder, I knew it will take some getting use to. I really prefer the zip binders over the snap, but I can usually manage with the snap type, so I figured I would give my precious Holborn a rest. So far, I am doing well with my Finsbury, and I promised myself I would try to give it a full week this time and I seem to be doing better with it so I think it will work for a while. We'll see how it goes, I usually have some sort of pic on Instagram with my Finsbury right now, so it's obvious it is working for the time being. So far, so good. Thanks for stopping by! :)
