In celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness month, I'm showing you today my pink BCA leather Filofax.
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted this Filofax in the Pocket size. There were two styles that came out then, the lizard print leather, and the PVC leather-look one. Of course I wanted the leather but it was so hard to find, because, of course, I waited years after they came out.
In June this year, I lucked out. I found one on ebay UK at a price I was willing to pay. I was ecstatic!

The overall design is modeled after the Finsbury. Some leather ones, the newer models I think, actually say Finsbury on the inside front cover and feature the Finsbury look of the leather. This one just says "fILOFAX Pocket Organizer - Real Leather" on the inside front cover.

The pen is the Franklin Covey 4-color multi-pen in the coral that's called the Melbourne. It has 3 colors (red/black/blue) plus a pencil. I initially bought this when I got the pocket pink Malden. I filled it with Zebra Sharbo gel refills because the Franklin Covey ink don't write well at all. It now has ink colors in sepia, blue-black and pink fluorescent (my most-used colors).

I used this as s wallet/purse while in Disneyland when I wanted to carry a smaller messenger bag. On a trip to Cambodia in September, this was all I had with me. I left the bigger Chameleon at home. It works great as a wallet because it has the full-length notes pocket at the back.
I tend to gravitate towards this Filofax when I need to carry a smaller bag because it functions great as a wallet.
I had 4 tabs running down the side: important contact numbers, a Notes section, a shopping list, and a Diary.

I put a week on 2 pages diary and monthly calendar, which I never really used.
And that's the BCA Filofax from many moons ago.
Thanks for visiting!
