Hey everyone, how’s it going? Hope you’re all doing well. Today’s post will be a little short but guys, I swear it’s good…well, for me…I have a new addition to my planner family!
Meet Midori, my fauxdori:
For anyone unfamiliar with the term, fauxdori is an alternative to the Midori TN (traveller’s notebook). TN’s are leather I believe but fauxdoris are often made of fabric instead. I have named my fauxdori Midori though because ‘midori’ is the Japanese for ‘green’ and mine is green.
Well then! With that explained, let’s continue. I got my fauxdori from Butterfly Notebook on Etsy as she had a fantastic selection of colours and styles. I picked up two notebooks as well to fit with watercolour pattern that matched the inside.
The basic fauxdori can hold two notebooks so I did pick up an extra elastic band in grey for mine so I can add some more later.
There was a charm on the front which is kinda cute but charms really aren’t my thing so I did decide to take it off.
And that’s my fauxdori! I think the planner, the two notebooks and the extra elastic band along with postage came to around €35 ($40). That’s pretty good in my opinion. It feels very nice and arrived quickly from Ukraine as well.
So yes, I am very happy with my purchase and looking forward to using it. What for you ask? Well, I’m thinking of transferring my reading log and bookshelf to it seeing as I have recently repurposed my A5 map Paperchase planner for something else.
You’ll have to wait a bit to see that though!
Do you use a TN style notebook for planning or journaling? If so, how do you find using it?
