Japan Stationery Haul 2019

In April, I went to Japan! It was the trip of a lifetime, and I’m definitely going to find a way to get back, no matter what. I think it might be one of my most favorite cities in the world: the efficiency, the kindness, the beauty, and of course, the stationery!

If you follow me on Instagram (if not, come join me!) you may have already seen what I picked up in my Stories, but I wanted to make sure I had my little – well, not so little – haul documented here on my blog, too.

Review: Pilot Juice Up Metallic Gel Pens

Continuing my ongoing love of Pilot Juice Up gel pens, here’s an overview of the metallic set – four colors plus gold and silver that are pretty much the best metallic pens I’ve used. (Not that I’m totally biased or anything…)

As ever, the Pilot Juice Up gel pens are super smooth and nice and shiny, just like you’d want from a metallic pen. I love the size: the 04 (roughly the same as 0.38 mm) are slim enough that they match my smaller handwriting preferences in my bullet journal, but thick enough to show a lot of the metallic cover.

Review: Black Gel Pens

The workhorse of your everyday carry, having a good black gel pen can make or break your planning experience. Here I’ll talk about my favorite black gel pens over the years — believe me, there have been many! — and hopefully you’ll be able to find your favorite too.

We’ll go from thickest width (measured in millimeters) to thinnest. As you might guess if you’ve read this blog before, my favorite pens hail from Japan, and this collection is no different.

Everyday Carry

In the 8 months since I’ve started bullet journalling (or well, my strange sort-of bullet journal, mainly hand-drawn planner hybrid!), I’ve developed a set of absolute favorite tools for my planner that stay in my pencil case and travel everywhere with me, alongside my Leuchtturm 1917 journal.

Here are my everyday carry items in order of most important/used.
