Jibun Techo 2019


I've been using the bullet journal for 2 years but I became busier and busier and thus, the format no longer worked for me. 

In April, I moved to a Kokuyo Jibun Techo, a rather popular planner system. 

I paired it with a Pentel Sliccies multi coloured pen. 

The version I bought was the Jibun Techo Biz with a planner that starts in April. 

The 2 cover choices were Red and Navy and there's a pocket on the front, which I've used to keep spare change and random things I've been given.

The front and back pockets are also great for storing cards, receipts and small sheets of stickers. 

I've also included another notebook for taking notes, also from the Jibun Techo range and a small A6 folder from Daiso. 

I found this pencil board at Tokyu hands from another brand. 
It matches the red cover well!  

There are yearly, monthly and weekly sections. 

I used the monthly overview as an expense tracker. 

The weekly section is vertical. I like that the layout has a to do list on one side, a time based planner, place to stick our TN5C printable. 

Overall, I'm really happy with the Jibun Techo. 
It's really easy to use and retains elements of customisation similar to the bullet journal. 

I also really like the compact size, perfect for slipping to a handbag for everyday or work.

Review: Pilot Juice Neon Pens and Black Fusen

Neon is a summer, festivals and look at me! 

Pilot released these gorgeous neon pens and black paper fusen.

The black fusen comes in a variety of different shapes. 
I picked up the speech bubble, star and of course, cat.  

First up, the black fusen had a list of recommended pens. 
The top 2 ranges are gel pens,  below is 1 marker and 1 mechanical pencil range. 

The Neon colours are Pink, Red, Green, Orange, Apricot Orange and Yellow. 

The colours show up on the black fusen beautifully but only 3 of the 6 colours show up recently well on regular notepaper. 

I really like the neon colours, I am excited to use them in more projects. 

And whilst the ink looks great on the black fusen, it's probably not necessary to purchase it if fusen is not your thing. Would I use it often, maybe not.

Review : The Green Party Magic Color Ink Glass Pen Box Set

A month ago, I was on holiday in sunny Singapore when I chanced upon a gift store of sorts called "The Green Party". Entranced by the numerous giant plush toys that adorned their doorway displays, I ventured in for a look and found out that they also sold stationery. Score! (Don't you love it when you find unexpected stationery?)

I picked up a few things and amongst them was this curious gift box set below.

Inside, there are two bottles of ink,  a glass pen , a glass pen rest and a mini UV torchlight.

The glass pen nib is very fine and works very well for writing. Pictured below is the red ink the set came with.

So what about the other bottle of ink? Well its a clear ink which only shows up when you use the UV light to shine on it. I guess thats what they meant by magic ink!

This is mostly a novelty thing to own since I dont envision myself needing to write secret invisible ink messages to anyone anytime soon [but never say never]

If you ever find yourself in Singapore, drop into the store for a look!
Who knows what you might find!
