Can I Borrow A Pen?

Hello hello Fleekers!  
How are you?  It's Wednesday!  Almost the weekend!

How did your color coding go?  Any new great ideas?  I would love to see them! 

Well now who likes pens?  Oh wait.  The question I should be asking is who doesn't like pens?  I love love love pens. Always have and always will.  Especially sets.  I have a thing about sets.  

So here are some reviews of three sets of pens.  The first two sets I absolutely LOVE!!!  The third is one that my brother swears by and my mom is getting into them.  I thought I would give them more of a chance.  I have had them for a while.

OK.  I am getting ahead of myself...

So let's start with my favorite Gel pens ever.

These are gel pens I got at a local grocery store but I am sure you could find them at your local Staples or Office Max.  Don't quote me on that though.

They are Pentel Sunburst Gel pens.  They are a medium ball point pen.  The ink is a gel mettalic.

As you can see the colors that came in the package are purple, red, blue, pink, and green.

I use these pens all the time to add an extra flare to my pages.  They came in real handy with my April and May pages.

Just be careful not to touch the ink right after you write.  It does smear easily.  

There is a bit of a shadow on regular notebook paper.  It doesn't bleed through though.

Here is an example of how I used the pens in my bullet journal.

This is the back side of the page.  There is not a lot of shadow on this paper.  My bullet journal paper is thicker than regular notebook paper.  

These are my RSVP pens by Pentel.   You can get these at any office supply stores.  
I love these pens as well.  

As you can see these are the colors available in the pack I got.

Again it is a medium fine point.  It it not a ball.  Just a regular point.

Again with some shadowing on the thinner regular notebook paper.

Here is where I use these in my bullet journal.  I use them to underline and color code my appointment times.  (See previous post for more detailed description of color coding.)

Now.  These apparently are the holy grail of all pens.  My brother LOVES these pens.  These are the G2 pens.  
They are a gel type. 

Here are the colors available in the pack I got.

As you can see the light blue does bleed through.  The others do a tiny bit.  
I do press kinda hard so that might be part of it.  

Here is the tip.  

Now.  One thing I don't particularly care for about these pens is they aren't really friendly for the pen loops.  I have tried the elastics and the regular ones and these pens don't do great with either one.  So I have been just putting the clip part (on the side of the pen) through the pen loop.

So there you have it.  Are those all my pens? Ha!  Heck no.  Lol.  We will review some more pens in my next post.  So stay tuned for that.

You thought I forgot about your homework assignment didn't you? Haha.  Jokes on you!  Just kidding.  
So. This week I have two options for you ready?

Option 1:
Get that set of pens you have been eying for a while.  Now make sure you can afford them.  I don't want to have people hating on me because they went over their accessory budget.  So just make sure it is something you are OK getting.  Once you get them start using them.  Decorate, use them on your color coding, make your grids with them.  Just try some different things.  As always I would love to see pictures!!

Option 2: 
Do you have a set that you haven't used in a while or that you haven't opened yet?  Well bust those babies out!  Time to experiment!!  Time to play!
So get them out and use them to decorate your journal/planner, write on your sticky notes with them, color code etc.  

So there you have it!  Again I would love to see your creations in your planners!  You can post them on my FB page: Life of a Fleek.  That way others can see them too!!

This is not a sponsored post.  All items mentioned above were purchased by me.  All opinions are genuinely my own.

As always Happy Fleeking!!!!!!
