Review: Giotto Turbo Glitter Pastel Pens

Giotto is a brand I had not seen before. 
A quick internet search tells me that it is an Italian brand aimed at children.

I spotted these glitter pastel pens on sale at paperchase and decided to try it out. 

This set is described as special glitter pens in 8 different colours with ventilated lids, ultra resistant nibs and safe water-based inks that can be washed out of most fabrics. 

With a pen tip of 2.8mm, it's not a pen one uses for detailed work. 
It feels like a typical felt tip when writing, the ink is pigmented and there is a lot of glitter.

You can't really tell from the picture but the glitter looks quite shiny in real life and the only downside is that it does get all over the place after a while. 

Great for kids, great for journaling. 2 shiny thumbs up!

Review: Paperchase 3 in 1 Pen

I was in London for work recently and of course I had to pick up some stationery. 

If you remember Borders' bookstores, Paperchase should be familiar.
I used to spend all my pocket money on things from Paperchase, everything was super cute. 

I picked up a few things this time, one of which was a 3 in 1 pen. 

Pen, highlighter and sticky flag dispenser.  

It comes in 2 colours, a pink highlighter/black ink/pink flags and yellow highlighter/blue pen/yellow flags. 

The pen is pretty standard, regular ballpoint and writes well even with the additional weight from the sticky flag dispenser. 

The highlighter is really nice.
It is very neon, very bright, perfect for making your notes pop!

The sticky flag dispenser is on the highlighter's cap and is super handy. 
I'm not sure if it's refillable but the cover comes off easily making it super convenient.

Overall, I feel this is a great tool for studying and also if you only have space for 1 pen.
