Review: Typo A5 Notebook Pencil Case

Typo is a great place to buy stationery. 
There's always a cute design or something you can pick up quickly as a gift for someone.

I was doing just that and spotted some cool new stuff, like this A5 Notebook pencil case.

It was S$11.99 and came in 2 colours, this peach/black and a black/red. 
To be honest, neither colour was particularly interesting to me but I really wanted to try it out. 

I decided to try it on 2 different A5 notebooks. 
First, the Filofax Clipbook. 

It works well around the entire thickness of the notebook but unfortunately did not work if you only wanted to keep it on the book cover. but to be fair, it could be because the elastic is new and therefore would loosen over time. 

Next, I put it on a hardcover notebook. 
It worked well on both the full thickness and just the cover. 

The final test, however, is the most important test. 

What will it fit? 

Unfortunately, this is where it disappoints. The pouch is not the full height of an A5 notebook so not all pens will fit. It also will not fit anything that isn't in the shape of a pen, such as corrector tape. 

Therefore, if you only need a pouch for your roughly 3 pens, this is perfect. 
Otherwise, I would suggest an actual pencil case.

Himekuri Desktop Calendar

HIMEKURI is a new type of desktop calendar available in Japan. They come in several designs/themes and each contain 7 stacks of sticky notes.

Each sticky note has the day/date on it and you can peel it off as each day passes by. 

Each day has a different drawing (according to theme) and each week has identical colors so you know how the week progresses.

The stickers peeled off can also be used to decorate one's journal.

They also look good inside of our favorite traveler notebooks! 

Have you tried these out? What do you think of them?
