Review : Pentel FITLINE for Clena Highlighters


If you are like me, you probably use up a lot of highlighters on a regular basis. So like me, you must be curious about new highlighters out there too. Today I'm going to review Pentel FITLINE for Clena Highlights. 

Clena pens by Pentel feature an otona [Japanese for adult or grown up] design targeted at fashionable young ladies. Needless to say, the highlighter line is the same and has a very feminine classy look.

The highlighter is double ended with the usual wide highlighter tip on one end and a pen like nib on the other for writing. 

The colors in the range are :
  • soft red
  • soft blue
  • mint green
  • gray
Here are the swatches : 

So how does it compare to the ever favorite mildliner range which costs the same? Well, the colors are rather pigmented compared to those offered by mildliner. Function wise, both are about the same. However the cream packaging makes it look more expensive than the white which mildliner comes in. 

Won't you give these a try next time?

Review: &Studium, stationery for studying

In 2021, I decided to start taking Korean lessons. 
Preparing for when travel starts up again. 

Which also means buying new stationery! 

I picked up a B5 cover, divider refill, loose leaf refill and vocabulary refill from the &Studium line of study specific stationery. 


The dividers are a nice bright colour, cute designs and come in a set of 4 with matching labels. 

The vocabulary refill has 30 sheets and have the same colour scheme as the dividers. 

Lastly, the loose leaf refill has 40 sheets and the paper is pink. 
Bringing all this colour to studying really helps morale. 

Here's what it looks like with everything set up. 
I love the semi opaque folder and the colours of the dividers. 

The labels work really well and they provided extras for future uses. 

The dividers came with a pretty useful bookmark/ruler too.

The vocabulary refill layout was great, spacious and easy on the eyes. 
I highly recommend it for language study or anything where a reference is needed. 

All in all, &Studium is a stylish way to study, no boring stationery, I'm excited to use it every day. 

The layouts are carefully thought thru and it's really useful. 

Do you use &Studium? what's your favourite item?

Review: Hightide Vertical Utility Pouch


Today, I am here to convince you to buy a hightide vertical utility pouch. 
If you're like me, you probably already own a horizontal pouch. 

The vertical pouch is quite similar to the horizontal in the following ways: 

It has many internal pockets. 

Your slim A5 notebook will fit in it! 

Many useful external pockets. 

Unfortunately, an A5 slim folder will not fit. 

but your TN will fit!

There's a nice pocket at the back, perfect for your phone or easy access to your notebook. 

loops for keychains or a bag strap. 

Loops on both sides for keychains or a strap

If you compare the size, it does look smaller and it looks like it has less pockets.

Length wise, the horizontal pouch will fit your longer notebooks/notebooks with covers and full A5 size notebooks. 

But my favourite thing about the vertical utility pouch, is that it will fit in my vertical bag. 
The horizontal pouch doesn't always fit, so that can make changing bags difficult. 

Also, I love the yellow of the vertical pouch. It looks so vibrant. 

Do you own a hightide pouch? What's your favourite colour?
