Foxy Fix vs ChicSparrow

So now I'm gonna write a completely different post for a change, and in English even. I haven't lost my knack for planners yet, even though I haven't been too good at using my planner lately. You know, I have a substantial collection of both Filofaxes and Gillios, currently with a slim medium/personal sized Gillio in Yellow in use. I love it, but I can't seem to find the peace needed to sit down and keep it up to date.

Anyway, I've never been into these ringless traveler's notebooks, but I suddently felt the urge to venture off into another adventure. So I was drawn to the Foxy Fix notebooks because of the reinforced spine, it made it look so bulky and delightfully thick, and the Le Voyageur leather (in Sandstorm) looked amazing. I just love distressed leather. However, I didn't realise the thickness of this particular leather, and I think I might have done something foolish by ordering one. Hopefully it's not too heavy, or else I'll have to part with it again.

Then, because there's always a then, I kinda figured I wanted to check out a similar one from ChicSparrow and ended up choosing a Mr. Darcy in Toffee. The color, the way it's easily scuffed and marked, the stitching and the floppiness to it lured me in. I do wish it had that reinforced spine, but hey, a girl can't have everything. I even smirked a little when I ordered it inscribed with Ā«CharlieĀ».

I will absolutely write an update when I have received my two new planners, and I hope I'll like them as much as I think. I don't plan on switching out my ringed planner, but it's always fun to discover new things and see what the fuss is all about.

My first Chic Sparrow was shipped on 9/1, and it finally arrived at my post office tonight. My Foxy Fix was shipped on 9/6, and I still have no idea where it is. My second Chic Sparrow was shipped on 9/11, and this is the one I'm most excited about.
