Zebra nuSpiral CC Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Pink Grip - ZEBRA BA-51-CP
  I LOVE the look and feel..., July 21, 2014
I LOVE the look and feel of this pen. It's very solid and the color looks even better in person, and the clicker feels sturdy and not at all cheap like a lot of pens. It writes super smoothly and is extremely comfortable to hold for me, though I imagine the grip could be a little too firm for other people.

The only negatives I'd mention are that the grip is an absolute dust magnet, and the pen is somewhat shorter than I'd anticipated. Other than that, however, I'm in love. Price was a little high, but if this pen remains as nice over time, I can see myself using it for quite a while.
Pentel Selfit Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Pink Grip - PENTEL XBR607P
  All in all, I like this..., July 21, 2014
All in all, I like this pen, though I'm not sure if it should cost as much as it does. I like the grip for the most part, and it IS neat to squish it in your fingers and reshape it, but it's a very subtle grip, and it's easy to still feel the barrel through it. The ink is super smooth, but a little light and it's gotten spottier and spottier the more that I've written with it -- that might just be something to happen to me, because I don't see any reviews on any of the pens in this line that mention ink spots.

I'm going to continue to write with it however, because despite the drawbacks, I do like the look and feel of this pen.
Nomadic PN-91 Top Open Pencil Case - Brown - NOMADIC EPN 91 BROWN
  My biggest problem with..., July 20, 2014
My biggest problem with pen cases is that I want the quality, but can't afford it -- this was almost too pricey for me, but I decided to treat myself anyway. And I'm glad that I did. Though one of the cheaper cases on this website, the Nomadic PN-91 Top Open Case is wonderful -- I love the pen flap because it's not clunky or in the way, and my favorite part is the smaller compartment where I'm keeping an eraser and spare pencil lead. I wish the case came in more colors, but the brown is a lot more pleasing to the eye than the pictures would have you believe.
Pilot FriXion Light Soft Color Erasable Highlighter - 6 Color Set - PILOT SFL-60SL-6CS
  These are by far the..., July 20, 2014
These are by far the best highlighters I've ever owned. I use highlighters for a lot of planning and outlining, so I like to have a good selection of colors, and one of the biggest problems I have with most, is that once you get past yellow, the other colors can get really dark and hard to read through. These soft colors are a godsend, for real -- they're so subtle and so light, but it's still enough color to make it pop on the page.

And the erasers actually work! I was a little skeptical about them at first, and they weren't at all a major selling point for me, but of course, I had to try them when they got here. And they erase the highlighter ink really easily! The only thing is that you have to wait for the ink to completely dry, or else the eraser might smudge it up a little.

I had an initial moment of worry when I first used one of the highlighters, because the point felt dry and stiff, but that was just because it was brand new, of course -- they work like a dream now. Really pleased with this purchase.
Sakura Gelly Roll Moonlight Gel Ink Pen - 1.0 mm - Rose - SAKURA 38170
  I hadn't realized how..., July 3, 2014
I hadn't realized how big the tip was, nor had I known how wet the ink would be, so there are a few downsides to this pen. It takes FOREVER to dry, and I mean, I was blowing on it and waving the paper around in the air and the ink was still wet -- you have to be really careful with smearing. The color is also a lot darker than I'd thought it would be. But to be honest, I really only bought this pen because I needed to hit the 25 dollar mark and my favorite color is pink -- so I suppose I can't complain too much about it. I do love the look and feel of it, and I'm certainly going to find things to use it for, so all-in-all, I don't regret the purchase.
Shachihata Artline Ergoline Roller Ball Pen - 0.5 mm - Red - SHACHIHATA K-4200 RED
  This is a great pen...., July 3, 2014
This is a great pen. Sometimes I worry about cheap pens with super fine points, I worry that they'll scratch up the paper, but the ink comes out of this baby super smooth and easy. The pen body is lightweight and comfortable, and I simply LOVE anything with a matte finish, so I think it makes this pen look better than most. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the market for red pens.
Kokuyo Campus Notebook - Semi B5 (7" X 9.8") - Normal Rule - 30 Lines X 80 Sheets - KOKUYO NO-8AN
  I'm in love with this..., June 2, 2014
I'm in love with this notebook. It's pretty pricey for what it is, so it was a definite splurge purchase, but I'm glad I made it. The paper in this book is so smooth and comfortable, but it still gives you that satisfying scratch when you write with a fountain pen, and the book itself feels surprisingly lightweight compared to the quality of the paper, which makes it easy to carry around. The soft and flexible covers aren't for everyone, but I do all of my writing on hard surfaces anyway, so I'm not bothered by it. My favorite thing about this notebook, however, is that when you close it, it still lays flat. A lot of books with this sort of binding, the covers will bubble up and stay open, but so far, this book shuts flat every time I'm done writing, and that's a plus for me. When I need a replacement, I'll most likely look into the bundle of five, should they still sell it, because I'm that pleased with the notebook.
Sailor Clear Candy Milk Fountain Pen - Medium Fine Nib - Strawberry Milk Body - SAILOR 11-0114-331
  This is my first real..., May 31, 2014
This is my first real fountain pen, and for the price, it's wonderful. It's super cute in appearance -- I'm obsessed with pink, it's a curse -- and I love the subtle little star on top of the cap. It writes really smoothly and fits perfectly in my hand. I'm a little disappointed with how light it feels, and I wish it were just a little bit heavier so it didn't feel quite so cheap, but for the price, and for a beginner user, I'm very pleased with the purchase.
P+G Pochi Slim Silicone Pen Case - Magenta - P+G POCHI SLIM MG
  I love the look and feel..., May 23, 2014
I love the look and feel of this case -- the silicone is so smooth and soft. I was initially worried about the snap being flimsy or weak, but it has a very secure closure. It has a funny smell that I hope fades with time, but unless you're going to be carrying this thing right against your face, I don't think the scent really matters! Seems like a dirt/dust magnet, but nothing you can't brush away with your fingers, I think.
Palomino Blackwing Pencil - Pearl - PALOMINO 103530
  I was really excited..., May 23, 2014
I was really excited to start using this pencil -- so much so that I tore it open as soon as it arrived. I LOVE the look of it -- I have a thing for plain white stationary supplies, for some reason -- and the eraser is so unique and different compared to what I'm used to. The lead is really smooth and I can't remember writing with a pencil that flowed so effortlessly. Unfortunately, I've learned the hard way that I don't like pencils that write this smooth, haha -- oops! And I have problems with the eraser, too. I love the idea of it being big enough to last, and I love the idea of re-positioning it as it wears down, but the eraser itself is kind of... inefficient. No matter how hard you erase, you can still see whatever you wrote/draw. If you're using these pencils just for writing, like myself, it's fine, but those who use these pencils for art should definitely use a separate eraser! I'm glad JetPens is selling them by the single pencil, because I almost bought an entire box and I would have been really disappointed, given the price of them. All in all, a good pencil that I will continue to use, but the chances of me replacing it when it's all used up are slim.
