Filofax | The Original Fashion Decade Blogger Challenge

Hello My Lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well! 

So, a a few weeks ago i was offered the chance to take part in a new 'Filofax' blogger challenge which is based around 'The Original Fashion Decade'. So Filofax gave a handful of bloggers the challenge to style up an original Filofax of our choice in a decade photoshoot. I literally jumped at the chance to get involved and just have lots of fun and be creative, it's something a little different to my usual posts but i would love to start doing a few more outfit and fashion related posts!

I chose the 'Original A5 Filofax in Fluoro Orange' and i absolutely love it. I had been meaning to get myself an organiser as i literally have so much going on i need my life organised as soon as possible haha. The bright fluorescent Orange instantly caught my eye as it is something quite different and let's face would never ever loose it in your handbag! It is made for real leather and you can choose from a range of different colours and textures; it is made in the UK and pieced together by hand so you know you'll be getting something that will last you a very long time. Instantly after seeing the Filofax in real life it instantly reminded me of the 80's and all of my favourite movies, songs and everything else in between. All the movies like 'Sixteen Candles', 'Pretty In Pink' and 'The Breakfast Club' instantly were inspirations. My cousins who are huge 80's fanatics so i went to them for some advice and voila my outfit was created. Big hair, bright makeup and a load of bangles and i was sorted haha, after looking back at the pictures i literally felt like a character from 'Back To the Future' or even 'Saved By The Bell' even though that was the 90's i thought i could still 'So, Like Totally' blend in ;)
