Hobonichi Haul

Hi there! For my first post of 2016 I showed you guys my new Hobonichi Techo planner. I also made a few purchases from the Hobonichi Web Shop. Let’s get into it!

From left to right: Pilot Kakuno Fine Nip, Uni Jetstream Ink Refills, Pilot Namiki Ink, Staedtler Textsurfer Gel, Tsukineko Momento Dual Markers (Blue)

I bought another Pilot Kakuno because my first one had some leaking problems. Despite that, I still love the pen so I decided to buy another one. I wrote a post on it here, check it out!

And then I just bought some refill ink for my pens. The Staedtler Textsurfer is something I’ve been wanting to try. My friend got me the wax highlighter from Muji last year and I absolutely love it. It’s the only highlighter that doesn’t smudge for me when I go over text written with gel ink pens.

Lastly, I bought these dual markers that I’ve never heard of before. They looked sort of interesting and the weren’t expensive so I just bought them (this is what happens when you are an online shopping addict).

Sorry for the bad lighting because I always seem to take pictures at night lol. Anyhow, they are quite nice but nothing spectacular. And I have absolutely no idea where I’m going to use them so maybe this specific purchase was a miscalculation on my part.

Next, I got a bunch of planner accessories for my new planner!

Clockwise from the top: See-Through Dot Stickers, Frixion Stamps, Hobonichi Stencils, Hobonichi Sticky Notes

The see through stickers, stencils and sticky notes are all made by Hobonichi to fit perfectly in the Techo planners.

The stamps are by Frixion and are of course erasable. I bought a meal design, a clover design, and one with the kanji for day off/vacation.

Hope you enjoyed this haul!

New Year, New Planner

Happy new year! It is now 2016 and time for a fresh new start. After going back to school in September, I completely fell off the radar because I was having trouble adjusting. So many people have told me that first year is the hardest and things will get running second year but that was not true at all. I’m not sure about the term ahead of me right now but second year first term was by far the most difficult and stressful.

I haven’t blogged since August, but that doesn’t mean I’ve had nothing to blog about. For the past 3 months, I’ve made way more stationery purchases than I should have. The most exciting one would have to be my new planner of choice for 2016! And that is dun dun dun dun drumroll please…

the Hobonichi Techo!

I’ve always been into everything Japanese and in fact one of my friends from my Japanese language class told me about this planner and how wonderful it is to use. I was immediately sucked in after seeing so many instagrams dedicated to this planner that I just had to get it. I was originally going to wait until 2017 to get it because I had already filled in all my blank insert dates for my Pineider planner. Ultimately, I couldn’t control myself and gave all of my beautiful inserts to me friend and made the order for the Hobonichi Techo.

Mine is the Original Hobonichi Techo in Japanese which is in size A6. The planner uses super thin Tomoe River paper that is surprisingly very bleed-resistant. There are pages for every day of the year which makes it perfect for journaling on top of planning. I will be using mine for school and journaling. You can get an abundance of accessories for it including stencils and covers. I will be posting a haul soon on the accessories I got. There are other sizes and types of planners from Hobonichi Techo as well! A quick google should provide you with a plethora of information.

And there it is! My planner of choice for 2016! Hopefully it’ll help me keep track of my life because my memory has been getting worse and worse for some reason.

I’m also planning to do some regular posts so I don’t fall behind on blogging. Please look forward to it!
