Review: The Superior Labor Pen Roll
Carrying my fountain pens around in the small Franklin-Christoph pen cases that come with the pen when you purchase it, was great when I was only carrying two pens at a time with me to work. Not so much when ten pens are involved. Then I found the Superior Labor and I knew that it's … Continue reading Review: The Superior Labor Pen Roll
Sailor Pens And Why I Keep Wanting More
Like with most things, when I find something I love, I just keep coming back to it for more, and that's what's happened with Sailor pens. They seem to check all the boxes I need in a pen.

The Flex Pen Trials

If you don't know, Boho Berry is a bullet journaling blogger that has … Continue reading My Introduction to the Visconti Van Gogh

Organics Studio Nitrogen Blue Ink
As I've said many times, blue ink isn't really for me, even though blue is my favorite color. I just feel as if blue and black ink have oversaturated pen stores. I mean how many different shades of blue and black can you really have? After a while they just all start to look the exact … Continue reading Organics Studio Nitrogen Blue Ink
