    A Review Of The Tombow Dual Brush Markers

    I’ve been using Tombow Dual Brush Markers for years. You’ve probably seen my Tombows in the background of my photos. I used them a lot while in college for illustrations. The Tombow markers have also become very popular in the bullet journaling community because of how versatile they are.  I think today it’s finally time to share my thoughts on Tombow Dual Brush Markers and what makes them such a great pen for bullet journaling. Are Tombow Dual Brush Markers as good as everyone says they are? Because while the Tombow markers are great, I also have a few problems with them.  A REVIEW OF THE TOMBOW DUAL BRUSH MARKERS…

    A Christmas Gift Guide For Stationery Lovers

    It’s almost Christmas so I thought I would do a gift guide where I share some of the best stationery items to give as presents. I may have stretched the definition of ‘stationery’ for a few of these items. But I wanted to mention related items which could make good gifts for someone who likes stationery.  If you’re wanting to avoid online shopping this year I would highly recommend you take a look in Paperchase and Cass Art. Local farm shops also seem to be good for stocking interesting stationery items which you don’t normally find on the high street.  The items I’ve mentioned in this post are just what…

So today I want to look at the 2019 Paperchase stationery advent calendar and see if it is actually worth the money. High-end advent calendars are becoming all the rage. When I was a kid you got a £3 calendar filled with Cadburys chocolates. If you wanted…

    Zebra Mildliner Review | The Best Highlighters

    One of my favourite things about high school was buying stationery supplies at the start of the year. I was terrible at revising in high school but I loved getting the opportunity to use highlighters. High school was a long time ago and along the way, I grew to hate those fluorescent yellow highlighters. However, all that changed a few years ago when I discovered the Zebra Mildliner.  As you may be able to tell from the name. These are highlighters but not as we know it. I first came across the Zebra Mildliner right around the time I was getting into bullet journaling. Along the way, they have become…

    The Best Planners For University Students

    It’s the end of summer, which means it’s now my favourite time of the year. Back to school season. Okay, that’s not entirely true. Starting a new course or going back after having a full summer off can be stressful. But it also gives you a perfectly good excuse to buy a new planner. Today I’m going to share what I think are the best planners for students. All the planners I’ve mentioned in this blog post are ones I’ve used at some point in the past at college or university. Some I found more helpful than others. But this is a good place to start if you’re a university…
