My Fauxdori Purchase!

Are you there friends, its me Brandon.

So today I decided to take another step in the direction of my stationery addiction. I decided to purchase a midori travelers style journal. But after hours of review videos I decided that the on brand Midori notebook was just not for me. Mostly because the leather quality seems really low, granted depending on how my fauxdori turns out I might end up with the traditional one. Only time will tell. But as most of you know, there are quite a few Fauxdori brands out there, and I decided to go off a suggestion by Miss Vicky Bee (as I usually do) and purchase from Jennifer Harvey. She has a lovely etsy shop with a few different designs and many color choices....

Now I am usually a pretty precise person, by the time I decide to purchase something I know what color and size I want. But with this purchase I was taken aback by the choices! I figured there would be one or two size options and perhaps three or four color choices. Since the product is leather I thought it would come in probably two shades of brown and black. But no. I was so wrong, thankfully! The color choices was amazing and there were various sizes to choose from. After three hours of deliberation I finally made a choice.

Since I wasn't sure whether or not I will actually like the Midori style notebook I decided to go with the less expensive option which fits notebooks around 3.5 x 5.5 inches. Just like my filofax though I can imagine I will want to add to my collection. But that will come with time. As for color choice I was so torn between blue, black, and a beautiful shade of red. I love my filofax in red but I was afraid that the shade of red from Jennifer wouldn't match perfectly which might bug me. But since I am planning on using my fauxdori as a blog and youtube planner I wanted it to match my theme: red. So I thought sod it. Ill go with the lake red. And I am having it embossed with my youtube channel's name BV Crafts.

I am so excited to receive this, though I can imagine it will take at least two weeks. I have already purchased off amazon some notebooks to go inside my fauxdori and of course those will come much sooner so I will have time to decide whether or not I like the paper quality.

Anyway I will now slow my rant down and encourage you to contact me if you would like to see an unboxing video and setup of my new purchase. I think that would be fun to do if you guys are interested :D

Also I think you should check out Jennifer's etsy store because I think her stuff is just so beautiful.
