Friday Feature is a series where I feature people who inspire me, or products that I find interesting. Today, we have the lovely Imy from Imy’s World telling us a little bit about herself. I discovered Imy’s blog when I was looking up Filofax reviews and found her planner setups very useful.
Tell us a bit about yourself, what do you like to do when you’re not planning?
I am 24, and in my spare time when I am not playing with my diary I love to go adventuring, and taking photos as I adventure. I love being outdoors and finding new fun places to see and visit! I spend lots of time taking photos these days, mainly on film cameras just because I love the way it comes out and the surprise of never knowing what will come out!
What is your favourite planner and why?
I love the Gillio Binders, I would love to own a Mia Cara one day, which is a bigger version of the Compagna which I have now, my most favorite thing about them is the pockets, and the size of the rings! Along the top there is a full length pocket which means I can easily put all my important A4 letters for appointments etc, folded in half and it means I never forget them as they are always in one place!
I have recently bought some Smythson inserts for my Gillio, and they look beautiful they have gold edges and blue paper! Such lovely paper to write on as well!
I still would love there to be more of a pink Gillio, as I love their quality best but I need more pink in my life! Pink is my favourite colour and I always find it helps me keep focused, not that I can ever keep focused but I like to think it helps! It also makes it a bit of a happier thing to look at! Brightens up most days!
What is your favourite planner accessory or stationery?
I guess it would be my Coleto! I love my Coleto it is the best pen I have ever used, although I am starting to move over to using my Lamy Safari for my new diary inserts but I still try to use my Coleto all the time! I have lots of coloured barrels to swap with so it never gets boring, my favorite ink to use is the Black-Blue 0.4mm.
What inspired you to start a blog?
I just wanted to have a place to write my randomness and share all sorts of random things, I sometimes go a bit quite on my blog and do not update it, but I love just being able to go there and share about something random that I love!
Where would you like to go on a holiday?
My list of places I want to go on holiday is so long! I would love to go to Japan, and the rest of Asia, I also want to go to Hawaii, and Blue Lagoon in Iceland, there are so so so many places I want to visit, I have a long list in my diary of them!
One day I dream to have a road trip across America seeing all the sights and finding random things on the way! Taking photos the whole way of course!
What are your favourite stores (online or brick & mortar) to shop in?
Artbox, I love Artbox, Cult Pens, amazing selection of pens, eBay and Etsy, I love shopping on there, eBay for films and cameras, and Etsy for random Asian stationery!
If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
And lastly, please leave a link to your blog and social media so we can connect with you:
I hope you enjoyed today’s segment with Imy. Do pay her blog a visit and look through her archive of planner reviews and setups. She’s been doing a planner tour of her gorgeous pink Gillio (as pictured above).
