Today's blog post is a small haul of my first order from JetPens! I'm a total pen junkie and I've been meaning to make an order here for a while, so I thought why not now? Anyways, on with the post!
Here's a picture of everything I ordered! I tried to focus on getting a few pencils, pens, and 2 highlighter colors I've wanted for a while! Clearly, my color preferences shine through with my purchases and it really makes it easier for me to wanna use everything at once haha!
The first things I got were pink ink refills for my favorite pens, Pentel EnerGel Deluxe RTX! I use the Breast Cancer Awareness type which isn't sold on the Jetpens site, but you can get it here on Amazon! (Jetpens doesn't seem to sell the Pentel pens I use, just the refills but I'm totally ok with that!~) I also got these bunny planner stickers that are reusable! I'm waiting for my new planner to come in to use them, so for now I'll just admire them. I also got the Tombow Mono 2way Correction Tape & Eraser! I write in pen a lot and I make a lot of mistakes, so I knew I had to get this (especially when I saw the pink one!), it's refillable but the refills are like a dollar less that the correction tape itself, so if I manage to use it all I might just opt to buy a new one instead of the refills!
I finally got to order the lavender and gray Zebra Mildliner highlighters that go with the other highlighters that I own and love! I tested these out and like my other colors they're pastel and not completely painful to look at like other normal highlighters. They're also very affordable (about $1.50 per highlighter and around $8 for the 5 color pack!). I also bought the pink and lavender Kokuyo mechanical pencils (both pencils use the lead size 0.5!) and the erasers twist up, are hexagonal shaped, and match the color of the pencil itself, which I find super cute ♥
I also got the pink and lavender Uni Jetstream Ballpoint Pens! I really needed to try out some 0.5 pens (my Pentel Energel pens are 0.7!) so I could have pens to write with in my planner! They're one of the most popular pens on the site and they were pretty cheap, so I just gave it a try! They come in a lot of different colors and they're really adorable in person! It's a definite change from my usual pens, but I think they'll work super well for my planner. I found the Zebra Fullst Mechanical Pencil (lead size is 0.5) only because I looked at Jetpens' "Back to School Favorites" collection! The green one was out of stock, so I got the pink color instead and I love writing with this! It was the main pencil I used today while taking notes in my Botany class and the eraser twists out on this pencil also. The little green stick that looks like a pencil is actually an eraser, called the Uni E-Knock! One of my favorite artists, Justin Wallis (owner/artist of Milkbbi), has this eraser (and also the Mildliners that I mentioned above!) and that was pretty much the only reason I got it. However, I have to say that it's super convenient! I usually use Pentel polymer erasers (they erase really well and don't make a big mess of shavings), but I can keep this in my pencil case along with all my pens/pencils and it doesn't take much of the eraser to erase.
I think this order went extremely well and I'm definitely gonna make another JetPens order soon! They give free shipping to orders that are over $25, and while it seems really easy to make, it was pretty hard for me to pick and choose to reach $25 haha!
I placed my order on September 1st, it shipped out on the 2nd, and I received it on the 5th! Almost everything I've seen on the site says that it ships out in 24 hours and I definitely agree with that claim. I was extremely excited to get my package and everything was either bubble wrapped or placed in a durable folder to keep from bending!
I definitely recommend JetPens!
