Pilot Pens - Best Tools for Hand Writers Everywhere! #shopletreviews.

Since I hand write my stories, I'm always in hunt over the right pens. Which ones last the longest? Do I want the clicker pen or the ones with the cap? Should I stick with black or do I want colors? I'm usually pretty basic in my approach, but since I had the chance to try out the wide variety of pens sent to me by Pilot, I thought I would take each type into consideration!

• Frixion Clicker - Erasable Pen

I'm in love with this erasable pen. I could never write in pencil when I'm drafting a story, but there's something cringe worthy about having to scratch out a mistake when I'm writing. To be able to go back and erase something means so much when you are a writer! This also works really well too, and you don't experience a lot of faded pen markings that usually happens with erasable pen. Not to mention the quality is still great too (not choppy, nearly broken pen marks either)!

• Frixion Highlighter Erasable

The same goes for erasing...HIGHLIGHTED marks. I remember having to highlight textbooks in college and I would get so mad when I highlighted the wrong thing! It's like all the logic I put into what I was highlighted is wrong. Now the problem disappears. This is definitely a thing. Now I can highlight to my hearts content! This also is a great quality highlighter and most of the colors fade away after you start erasing.

• B2P Colors Multi Pens

I love gel pens. I don't use them with first drafts but I do use them when writing down notes or ideas. These work great and I especially love the purple, blue, and pink.

• B2P GelB2P Ball Pen, and Acroball Fine Pt

These last three pens are my personal favorite when writing down story drafts. I love they are all three clicker pens and they make for such smooth writing. If you are hand writer like me, you will want to purchase these. They are also a very good price too. I can write for a lengthy period of time without my hand cramping and also without the pen running out of steam. These are a must have in your writer supply closet!

I highly recommend you check out these pens as well as other Shoplet office supplies because they really have great quality stuff!

I received complimentary pens in exchange for my honest review.


  1. I struggle finding a good pen to write with, usually go to my stand by cross pen, may have to check these out as an option.

  2. Oh man we hoard pens at our house - I swear we buy a zillion then they all mysteriously disappear! I'll have to look for some of these and give them a try!

  3. I love pilot pens. I like to use their very fine point pens in my taking notes in college.

  4. i love gel pens. i have used pilot and loved them!

  5. I need to find a pen that is good for left handed people!

  6. I am a tech happy chick and really like my gadgets. At the same time there is nothing like the feel of a good pen sliding across paper.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.
French Toast Bites.
If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!
