DAISO X Girl's Trend Pastel Marker Pens Set

DAISO Japan has themed up with the popular website Girl's Trend for another collection and this time round it includes a set of pens which has been highly popular. 

Swatches below: 

Two of the colors are a little darker than the rest but all of them are fairly light and see through. They are very similar to the popular mildliner highlighters except that they are not dual ended. I've swatched them below to show the difference and as you can see, the mildliner is actually a little more opaque.

They are perfect for journaling and at this low price, they are a lovely addition to anyone's collection!

Have any of you tried it? What do you think?

Sunstar HARU & HARU schedule stickers

SUN-STAR has released a series of repositionable schedule stickers called HARU&HARU and I picked up the HOLIDAY range for a review!

Each pack comes with just one sheet which you can separate into 4 smaller sheets to fit in your journal. Each sheet also has a stripe of repositionable tape on it which means you can stick it anywhere in your planner and remove it cleanly to stick elsewhere.

And that's not all! The stickers themselves are also repositionable! This makes them perfect for scheduling if you have plans that change and can then move to them to the updated time/date/location in your planner.

SUN-STAR has marketed these are a first of its kind and I do not believe I have seen them anywhere else either. 

What about you? Have you tried these? What did you think? Would you like us to stock it in the store?

DAISO Pop-up film sticky memo

I love using sticky memos and in particular film ones. The shiny smooth surface is one of my favorite surfaces to write on so I always try to hunt this sort of sticky memos down.

Imagine my delight when I found out DAISO had put out a new range of them!

They come in a set of 6 [3 wide, 3 narrow] strips and are encased in a holder to protect them during transport. As a matter of fact, the holder itself is made of a gorgeous glittery clear plastic. 

I loved it so much, I bought every single one I could find in the store.

Every single one is gorgeous and there is definitely one that works with any color theme you could possibly think of!

Has anyone tried this? What did you think of it?

BALL Pentel 45th Anniversary Limited Edition Set

To celebrate their 45th anniversary, Pentel has released a limited edition series of their ball pens. Hyped as a retro packaging but with a brand new feel of writing, the pens are available in BLACK , BLUE or RED ink [packaging can be emerald green, yellow or purple]. However there is also a LE set available and in it there are 7 ink colors with 7 different pen colors as well! 

The pens write extremely smoothly [courtesy of the 0.8mm tip] and the packaging is a delight indeed. I love them so much they have already joined my regular lineup of pens for usage in my journal.

Do check them out and let us know what you think of them!

December 2017 Subscription Box: Goals

As December looms, we are all inclined to look back on the year.
We ask ourselves questions like;

How has it treated us?
Has it been good? Has it been bad? Has it been unexpected?
How have we treated it?
Have we spent our time wisely? Have we squandered it? Have we achieved our goals?

And most importantly, we ask ourselves;

How can we do better next year?

This month’s box is all about reflecting over the year that has been 2017 and getting ready for 2018.

Because good preparation is half the battle won.
So let’s end the year with a bang and get started on the next.

This Box includes: 

  1. Two sheets of planner stickers*
  2. A sheet of illustrated stickers* 
  3. A sheet of 'list of 5' stickers*
  4.  A sheet of monthly stickers
  5. One black bulldog clip (M size)
