Writing Journals Using Pentel Pens

Disclosure: The author of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review.  I was provided with the products mentioned  in exchange of my honest  opinion which may differ from yours.  

A friend of mine gave each of my kids a journal so I encouraged them to write a daily entry on it.  They agreed but  told me that I am not allowed to  read or look at it, lol.  I am glad that they are  doing it though, it will help them to write creatively by expressing their  thoughts.  My daughter love to write  but my son doesn't.  I told my son that  when he exercise his writing ability, it will  help him build his  vocabulary.  So far, they are doing great in  school and their grades are excellent.  As a parent, it makes you  happy to see that they are doing so well..  
I write my journal once in a while  whenever I am inspired or when something happy or sad happened to us so I am happy that I received new  stuff for us to use  in writing.  I love Retractable Gel Pens so I am happy to see that Shoplet included one in the package of the Pentel products that I have to review.  I am currently using the liquid gel ink so I haven't open this one yet.  You can buy this at Shoplet for $11.07.  I like  it's distinctive and textured grip.
My  daughter was very happy that  I have this new set of Mechanical Pencil because she love using it when she is doodling.  She specifically love this Pentel Twist Erase mechanical pencil because it has a sturdy and well-balanced barrel.  It also has a protective tip design which stabilizes lead to reduce lead breakage.  The latex-free grip delivers maximum comfort and control.  You can  buy his for $4.07 each at Shoplet.
Here are some of  our daughter's sketches of Anna and Elsa  from Frozen.  
My husband does a lot of writing as well for his master's  course so having these Retractable Ballpoint Pens is  beneficial to him.  Of all it's features, I specially like that it has an  ultra-smooth ink flow as you write, while the deep, vivid colors it produces lend beauty to your handwriting.
Writing my daily goals is a big part  of being a SAHM.  I  always jot them down because at the end of the day, I want to see what I accomplished and still need to accomplish so I don't feel like I wasted my day without  doing anything (of course that is understatement because as a Mom, we never ran out of things to do, right?).

New Shoes for the kiddos

I think the kids  feet grows every few months because we constantly have to buy them new shoes as   they outgrew their shoes  very often.  We can't buy them  the size that is a little longer than  their feet because  it's uncomfortable for the to walk so it is always the right fit.  I am glad that I found the Asics on sale  and I also find a good pair for our daughter.
Most if my children's shoes   are  still  in great condition so I always  send them to my  nephewes and nieces who can use them.  

Keyboard has a Built In Metronome

Now that  we have the keyboard, our daughter seldom uses  the traditional piano.  She also do not use her pitch tuner metronome  because the keyboard has a built in metronome in it.   I still want them to use the  piano once in a while  but it is getting out of tune so we will need to have it tuned this year.  That's one thing that  we've learned  when we bought it, the keyboard doesn't need tuning and  that  it has a built in metronome which is nice.

Magnetic Glass Board

Disclosure: The author of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review.  I was provided with the products mentioned  in exchange of my honest  opinion which may differ from yours.  

I have always wanted to have a board on the wall where I can  write our schedules, appointments, and goals but I never got the chance to buy one.  They can be quite expensive  especially for a good ones like this magnetic glass board that I got from Shoplet.  This Best-Rite Visionary  magnetic  white board cost $86.69.  
I wasn't able to  take photos of the whole package  because I was cooking when it arrived.  MY husband laid it on the hallway floor and my  children  managed to open it up without me, wahh.  See how impatient they are?  They were excited  to see what it was inside.  Anyway, I originally  planned to   hang this in the kitchen wall so I can use it but my kids took ownership of it.  They want it hanged in their bedroom wall.
The package came with these ExpoNeon dry erase marker.  My kids love these because it has bullet tip and ink   doesn't have a strong odor like other markers have.  There's also  chalk markers that are oil based.  These are  great to use  on glossy surfaces such as glass, windows, mirrors, and white boards such as the one we have.
My husband  wasn't able to mount it on the wall  because  he is busy with his studies but promise the kids to  do it this Easter break.  Being impatient as they are, they  are already using it to  jot down their mine craft notes.  
Although I am bummed that  my board got taken away from me, I am very glad that they both love it.  I am sure that they will get tired of using it so I will eventually have  the chance to use it lol. 
Here is the  full product details of this  magnetic glass board:

Surface and coloration are engineered to have ideal optical qualities and exhibit good depth of field, contrast and ambient light toleration. Compatible with any dry/wet-erase marker and grease pen.

I will be updating this  once my husband have  mounted this on the wall this weekend.
We did not use the other part of the tray because it was sticking out so far from the wall.  I think the other part is enough.

Hello KItty Soap and Scrub Set

Ms. Burrito got this  soap and scrub set of Hello Kitty from  Tita Raquel.  She love the body wash but not really  crazy about the shampoo.  She likes the Cotton Candyscent for both of them though.  I love the tub hook and also love using the scrub when I take a bath.

Write Creatively with BiC!

Disclosure: The author of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review.  I was provided with the products mentioned  in exchange of my honest  opinion which may differ from yours.  


Now that my husband is back to school pursuing his master's degree, we always need  office supplies at home.  He is currently using  one Comfort Ball Pen that I received from Shoplet to write his notes.  He said that this has comfortable grip and smooth ink.  He also said that it is not the best pen have used but it is okay.  I thought it writes well on the paper as I used one  in my to-do list (photo at the end of the post).  One box of this cost $16.09.  It contain 12 medium blacl in ball pens.
If you love writing clean with a smoother in pen, this Retractable Ballpoint Pen is the one for you.  I love this one more than the comfort ball point pen because of its exact precise lines.  A box of this contains 12 Fine Blue ink ball pens.  The cost is the same as the  one above.
These Window Markers feature a highly visible ink specially-designed to adhere to glass.  This is perfect  for me to use in writing the  check list for my kids before we head out the door to school.  We have a big mirror in our hallway where I   put  my reminders for them but  having these markers would be easier because of the  vivid colors on both transparent and dark surfaces that it produces. I like that it can be easily remove with a wet cloth. These are great for professional or decorative use.
Now if you love reading or using your  gadgets, this  2-in-1 Pen would be perfect to have because it has the capacity to use on your touchscreen device including tablet and smart phone.  One specific circumstance that I would use this for is when I am outside with  my gloves on and have to use my  phone.  
Even though I do most of  my work on the computer, I still jot down my to-do list every time just to keep me in track.  Aside from that, I  want to exercise my  handwriting as well.
As of the moment, four of the things on my to do list are done. I am planning to finish this today so if I have new ones next week, that would be done accordingly as well. How about you, do you make a to-do list?  Done with all of the  above plus I cleaned the house.  I wasn't able to do laundry but that would be  my first job for March (tomorrow) lol.

Heart Key Ring

My daughter bought this key ring  and gave it to her religion class teacher.  Her teacher   do so much for the  4th graders, she is like their classroom teacher.  I know that she deserves more than just this key ring but I think it is cute and it's the thought that counts, right?

Stadium File and SuperTab Folders

 Disclosure: The author of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review. Opinions expressed is solely my own and may differ from others. The product/s being described in this review was provided for FREE for evaluation purposes only.

I am so glad that there are online companies like Shoplet that supplies all kinds of office supplies.  You can rely count on them in finding whatever you need for your business or personal use in your home office.  As you all know, it is tax season here in the US again.  That means, taxpayers  like my family, have been collecting  the documents we will need to file our taxes.  These Smead supplies that I got from Shoplet helps me organize everything that we need for our taxes this year.  
I got a pack of this SuperTab tab file folder  in dark pink.  A pack of this cost $3.55.  I love it's over sized tab because you can easily   read the labels  on this.  The color pink is chosen to show support the fight against breast cancer which a lot of women nowadays  are battling.  I admire the company for participating on this cause.  A portion of the sale for this product will go to the breast cancer research.  
Photo isn't mine
  These 3-in-1 Super Tab Section Folders is perfect for my kids  music notes.  They are both taking piano lessons now so each of them would need a separate file for their loos music sheets and other  things.  You can buy this for $7.88 per pack at Shoplet website via the link provided.
I love the Lockit technology feature of this 3-in-1 SuperTab section folders  because you can  securely subdivide multiple documents within a single file folder.  My two kids don't have  a sense of organization yet so this would prompt them to do it as it has three extra-high interior pockets  that safely hold documents, photos and certificates for secure transport while keeping the materials readily accessible. The two pockets are perfect for holding their music sheets. The second one on the back cover is slightly shorter to hold smaller items and keep them partly visible,  this would serve as their  iPod pocket. All pockets are closed on two sides for easy document insertion.   I wish I have these kind of folders when I was still in school.
Photo is not mine
The last but not the least is the Smead Navy Stadium File that you can buy  for $22.44. The  12-Pocket Stadium File is exactly what I need to organize all our taxes from previous years and the documents we have this  year. 
This 12-pocket Stadium File is ideal for clearing clutter from your work space or counter top.  My husband  was eyeing for it but he was too late  tell me as I already organized our taxes doc in it.  He wanted organize his homework for his classes online.   I love that the expanding file is tiered for easy viewing. The letter-size pockets are also tiered and fixed so the papers don't fall to the bottom of the file.

Reusable Hooks and Packaging Tape

 Disclosure: The author of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review. Opinions expressed is solely my own and may differ from others. The product/s being described in this review was provided for FREE for evaluation purposes only.


Glad that I received this Duck Brand packaging tape from Shoplet to review. I will be getting ready to pack the box that I will be sending to my family in the Philippines. I did not send it during the holidays because it cost so much to ship but plan to send it this summer instead.  This HP260  packaging tape is crystal clear and has a wide temperature range  performance and is resistant to ultraviolet rays which eliminates the yellow color that you see on a regular packaging tape over time.  To  test its performance , I   used it for my Christmas decor storage boxes and the adhesive really work great!
I also received two Geckotech reusable hooks .  The one holds up 5 lbs and the other  hold up to 3 lbs.  I love that you can re-use it again and again because of its micro suction feature.  It is very easy to   transfer from one place to another as long as you use it on painted surface, glass, laminate, stainless steel, and tile.  What I love  is the fact that it doesn't damage the surface  when you remove it compared to some hooks with adhesive in it.
I used these reusable hooks in my closet.  I only have  few bags (5 to be exact) and they all go inside our closet, unorganized!  I just pile em up inside, that's why I don't buy anymore bags because I don't have  place to organize them.
So I am glad that I have these hooks, I can at least  hang two of them in there.  The three remaining is okay to sit inside  my closet as they are small.

EcoFFICIENT HP Paper

Disclosure: The author of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review. Opinions expressed is solely my own and may differ from others. The product/s being described in this review was provided for FREE for evaluation purposes only.

When I finally came here in America to live with my husband, I found out that my husband is not the most organized person. I say that maybe because I was used to organizing documents every time as my line of work as an office secretary.  Anyhow, I have a filing system with our important documents here in our home office and Shoplet  is my  go-tp store for every  office products that I need.  
 I received two  packs of  Ecofficient papers that provides high performance  but lower impact on mother earth.  If you would see  one pack, you would think that there would only be ten pieces of them but you are wrong.  I love that it is lighter weight because it takes up less space to file, bind and store.  
This Hewlett Packard HP EcoFFICIENT 16# Paper fits up to 125 more sheets in the printer tray for less refilling which is really nice.  This absolutely helps save on postal and disposal costs.  It is perfect in  printing coupons!
Aside from the paper, I also got this  office mug that I really love.  I have so many coffee mugs now so I am  stationing this in my home office.  
I also got  the  wooden HP Key holder.  It's just awesome when you buy something and the company  throws a little extra.  I did not expect to get the mug and key holder  so  they were a pleasant surprise.
