Sticky note page marker dispenser offered by Ning Inc

I am a college student so I do a lot of reading.  I like to mark multiple pages in each of my textbooks for easy reference so it’s always nice to have page markers in several different colors.  This dispenser comes with 4 different colors: pink, blue, orange and yellow.  You can choose the length of your page marker which is nice.  The page markers do not adhere too strongly to pages so there will not be any tearing or residue left behind.  I highly recommend these to students and professionals.  I received this product at a discounted price.

Rhodia Notebook

rhodia I purchased this notebook for bullet journaling.  I have used several different types of notebooks but I have been hesitant to purchase the more expensive Moleskine and Leuchtturm notebooks.  For those of you who are not aware, they are normally priced at around $20-35.  When I purchased my notebook, it was priced at under $17.  Since then, the price has gone up a few dollars but it varies by seller.  I’ve seen a lot of people with concerns about pens bleeding through and I’m happy to say that Rhodia is made with high quality paper that allows only minimal bleeding and ghosting through the pages.  For a more thorough look at the Rhodia, please watch my video review here.  I would also love to hear your suggestions about what I should do to make my bullet journal even more visually appealing or functional.

Canopy Street Chalkboard Floral Thank You Note Card Assortment Pack – Set of 36 with White Envelope by Canopy Street

I love these gorgeous “thank you” cards!  I purchased them for my wedding and I am so happy with all of the designs.  I can’t wait to send them to my lovely guests.  This variety pack includes six different designs and a total of 36 cards.  Each design is a gorgeous floral design with “thank you” incorporated in the design.  They come with enough envelopes for each card so you do not have to purchase anything extra (except for postage, if you are mailing them).  The cards are sturdy and seem to be made with a high quality paper material.  The envelopes are also very nice quality.

I highly recommend these to anyone who is having a gathering where gifts are expected because they are the perfect way to thank your loved ones.  These cards are elegant and sophisticated enough for a formal gathering such as a wedding but they are also versatile enough to be used for less formal events.  I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

48 Piece Pen Set of Multicolor Gel Pens Offered by Thread N Stitch

48 Piece Pen Set of Multicolor Gel Pens – Ideal for Scrapbooking, Coloring, Doodling, Sketching and Craft – Includes Metallic, pastels, Neon, Glitter, Neon Color Pens – Makes a great Gift for Kids Children & Adults
Offered by Thread N Stitch

gel-pensgel-penssThis was a blast from the past for me! When I was a teenager, gel pens were so cool! Now, over a decade later, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these!

This is a large pack of shimmery/glitter, metallic, neon and ordinary colors. Every color you could possibly need. They are great for writing fancy letters and scrapbooking. The main reason that I got these pens was actually for coloring in my adult coloring books. I find that normal markers and crayons do not have fine enough tips for the small designs in adult coloring books but gel pens work perfectly. Since there is such a wide variety of colors in this set, I can let my creativity flow.

My only issue with the pens is that they smudge a little more than other gel pens that I have used. This is not a deal-breaker for me since I normally color in a way that does not involve me running my hand over the wet gel. All pens, even regular fountain pens, smudge at times so just be aware of this while you are using the pens. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review and I am quite happy with them!

Progressive Planners Goals Planner Offered by Progressive Planners

Progressive Planners Goals Planner – Notebook, Organizer and Scheduler for Goal Setting, Time Management, Productivity and Personal Development – Undated Daily, Weekly, Monthly and Yearly Calendar
Offered by Progressive Planners

goal1goal2goal3goal4I am in love with my new goal planner! I am a perfectionist and it’s very important for me to have a neat, organized way to plan out my entire life, including major goals that I hope to achieve. I’ve used a lot of other planners that were not specifically made for goal planning, including some that I created myself, but this one is the absolute best.

In the first few pages of this planner, you answer questions about yourself such as “What are my top three weaknesses that I MUST work on?” and “How do I sabotage myself from getting the outcomes I know I’m capable of?” This kind of self discovery/assessment is important because it’s one thing to have it all in your mind and quite another to see it on paper. Personally, one of my one year goals is to lose 50-70 pounds. I wrote down my weaknesses. I was already aware of the fact that I overeat and live a sedentary lifestyle but it was almost like writing it in this journal was admitting it to myself for the first time. The same thing goes for the ways that I sabotage myself. Now it’s down on paper and I can sufficiently plan ways to combat that.

There are pages to record and thoroughly plan one year goals and well as monthly goals. The questions for each are very similar, and you can break down the yearly goals into quarterly milestones (for example, lose 10 pounds by October; lose 10 pounds by March; and so on) and the monthly goals can be broken down into weekly goals (for example, drink 64 ounces of water; track all food intake/exercise; lose 1-2 pounds; and so on). At the end of each week, you assess your progress and answer questions about your victories, challenges, what you can do better the next week and more. At the end of each month, there are questions about your accomplishments, obstacles, how your progress contributed to your long term goal and more. There is also whitespace for a mind map, which I love because I have a lot of fun creating those! In addition to all of this, there is space to plan your normal, everyday appointments and other engagements that are unrelated to these goals, so you can use this planner for literally every aspect of your life!

This planner really is comprehensive and I believe that it is an incredibly valuable tool for planning for my future and will help me me become more likely to reach my goals this time. I highly recommend this to everyone who is working to better themselves in some way. I received this product ata discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Cooling Gel Memory Foam Travel Pillow Offered by SMYLLS

SMYLLS Cooling Gel Memory Foam Travel Pillow Provide Best Neck and Head Support in Travel & Office
Offered by SMYLLS

I am using this awesome pillow as we speak! I think it would be fantastic for travel but I actually use it at home while I am reading textbooks. It provides a lot of extra support and gently tilts my head forward without putting it at an odd angel. I spend a lot of time bent over textbooks so it is essential to find a comfortable way to read for long periods of time. This pillow is the perfect balance between firm and soft, and the gel memory foam helps it to mold perfectly to the shape of my neck and shoulders. I love that it is a cooling pillow because sometimes having a pillow behind your neck traps extra body heat and becomes uncomfortable but this is comfortable enough to use for hours at a time. I highly recommend this to people who spend long periods of time studying, as well as anyone who is looking for a great travel pillow. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Zebra MILDLINER WKT7-5C (5-Color Set) / WKT7-5C-RC (5-Color Set) /WKT7-5C-NC (5-Color Set)3 pack by Zebra

Zebra MILDLINER WKT7-5C (5-Color Set) / WKT7-5C-RC (5-Color Set) /WKT7-5C-NC (5-Color Set)3 pack by Zebra

This is an amazing set of highlighter pens!  I purchased these pens for use in my bullet journal as well as mind mapping for college coursework.  This is a set of 15 pens in many different shades.  I tried the pens on standard paper as well as thin receipt paper to show how it appears on the front and to what extent it will bleed or ghost through to the back of the page.  I am really enjoying the variety of shades because it makes it easy for me to color code assignments/appointments in my bullet journal.  I highly recommend these to anyone who creates their own bujo and to students who do a lot of highlighting.

Examples of the different levels of thickness you can achieve with the Mildliners:

*******************************UPDATE!********************************

I recently discovered that these amazing pens are DOUBLE TIPPED!  Last night I was lying in bed studying when I bit the bottom of my pen/highlighter and something came off in my mouth.  At first I thought that I had broken my beloved highlighter but I actually discovered and removed the cap for fine tip that was on the other end of the pen!  I was under the impression that the “fine” lines were created by writing with the thinner part of the regular tip but, while they is technically true, there is also both a bold AND fine tip on each of these pen/highlighters.  Below is an example of what writing with the bold tip looks like in comparison to the fine tip.  Give these lovely pen/highlighters a try.  I promise you will not be disappointed!

Mens Stay Dry Tech Knapsack Offered by Bells & Whistles

Mens Stay Dry Tech Knapsack
Offered by Bells & Whistles

knapsackI absolutely adore this knapsack! My husband and I really enjoy hiking and we are always looking for accessories to make the trip easier. Lately we have wanted to try a waterproof bag but most of the ones that we had seen were kind of silly or too brightly colored. This little knapsack was exactly what we had been looking for. First of all, it looks great. Honestly, if we had some use for it aside from our outdoor pursuits, I would definitely love to use it for that. It looks professional and stylish, and best of all it is understated and doesn’t include a bunch of silly, bright colored designs. It is a very functional piece with several different zippered compartments. There are two large compartments and a number of smaller compartments as well, for items that you don’t want rolling around inside of the larger compartments. We store extra clothes and our first aid kit in the large compartments and smaller items such as tissues and my inhaler in the smaller compartments. The knapsack is made well and feels very sturdy. I trust that it will last for many hikes! I highly recommend this to everyone, whether you are planning on using it for outdoor activities or if you are a student or professional. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Samsill 2-in-1 3 Ring Binder & Padfolio, Customizable, Clear View, 1 Inch Round Rings, White

binderrrThis binder has been a life saver for me. I have a HUGE meteorology textbook that is loose-leaf and it is difficult to hold the entire book while reading it without being uncomfortable. I have been removing the chapters that I am required to read each week and placing them in this much smaller, more manageable binder. Of course, I still have to read several chapters at a time so it was important to find a binder that was both sturdy and held a considerable number of pages. I can easily fit 80 textbook pages in the binder and the front cover lets me slip the front page of the textbook inside so I know which binder to reach for when I am studying a certain subject. The binder comes with a notepad, which is very convenient because I don’t have to take up space in my binder with extra pieces of notebook paper. I highly recommend this to students as well as professionals who use binders for their work. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.
