Obsession

I love having a diary, a good old fashioned paper diary, and yes I do like to buy my diary well in advance of the new year. Here is what I am trying to choose between....
Filofax Metropol in Raspberry - Personal Size $60 + $30 for infills I want.






I would really love the Filofax but I dont know if I can justify $90 on a diary. Thoughts?
P.S I have been updating my blogroll on your right ------>

  1. I can justify spending a lot of cash on a diary because it's something I use everyday. I was looking at a diary I wrote in eight years ago and my gosh it's a shock to see how much my thoughts and my whole life has changed.

  2. Ooh, I love that Frankie diary!

    My diary this year is that Kikki K diary (but in green) and it has served me well. I am obsessed with that store.

    I've never had a Filofax before, but I know a lot of people like them. The one you want is on sale at the moment, if that helps sway your decision?

  3. The Frankie Diary is ADORABLE! And totally justified, since it's also cheaper than the Filofax one.. Also; Supercute <3

  8. Ooh my cousin was telling me about the Frankie diary the other day. I hadn't seen it until now though, its so pretty! I think that will be the one for me in 2011. They are all gorgeous though, so I'm sure you will be happy with whichever one you choose :)

  10. I like the second one a lot--what a pretty color! I waited till the last minute this year and had to buy one I don't love cause it was getting time-sensitive, ha! (I operate on the school year). I need to be better about using it, though . . . sometimes I neglect it too long and then it's hard to catch up! You're smart for thinking ahead :)

  11. I love the Frankie and Kikki one. I've been using Kikki diaries for about 3-4 years now. So I'll be be using the A5 Kikki diary again. I got a white leather one this year...bad move.

  13. Haha this is hilarious because I have been thinking about diaries as well. And the ones you posted are ones I would love to get. I've seen the Frankie one and it's adorable but I would love to get a Filofax. A pink one as well. I guess the difference with Filofax is that you can keep it for a few years and change the inside!

    P.S. I think you can start collecting your kids books...I'm sure you won't jinx anything.

  14. Oh so many choices! I really like the pale pink one with 2011 embossed on the cover, and you know how I feel about keeping calm and carrying on! That's the journal I got for the new year. A red one. Love it!

    Hope you have a really great week, Miss Megan!

  16. For cuteness - definitely Frankie, but if it's something you'll use for work/professionally, then a Filofax (while a bit dear) is still cute, but justifiable... and a nice treat to celebrate your new job beginning!

    Thanks for adding me to your blogroll. :) x

  18. I always love buying a new diary for the new year! I can't wait to get my 2011 one. I love that Frankie Diary - gorgeous! I also want a filofax but can't justify the money either, will probably just stick with a normal diary instead.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog, I'm now following you!

  19. These are all so cute! I would never be able to narrow it down to just one!

  20. I'd go with the Frankie 2011 diary. It's gorgeous!
    I absolutely love your blog by the way. I'm totally obsessed with your header, it's amazing!

  21. I'm voting for the filofax. That may simply be because I adore the movie 27 dresses and she uses a filofax, but I also like the color. And the snap.

  22. Oh the Filofax one looks really nice. It's a great colour! Hmm, and the ones by Cavallini & Co are very tempting too. Oh my, decisions decisions!
