Today I want to share with you my most used pens. I love writting and doodling and I'm always trying out new pens but these are the ones I've been using the most. You can see them in action on my pinterest board here.
Below are the Stabilo Point 88, in 0,4mm that come in a pack of 25 colors - I also have Staedler pens, that are very similar and I like them both. The colors are beautiful and vibrant and the ink flows well - you just have to be careful to keep a steady pressure, otherwise they can saturate the paper with ink, leaving darker spots or bleeding through the paper. I love them for doodling and writing.
I recently got the Pilot Juice gel ink pens, in the pastel colors (below). They write in 0.5mm and come in pack of 6 adorable colors. I really like the pink and purple, the colors are vibrant and the ink flows nicely but I was a little disappointed with the other colors, since they can get a little chalky or uneven. On kraft paper they perform a little better but the ink is absorbed by the paper and you have to re-trace the lines quite a lot, especially with the green. I use them mainly for smaller details, I can resist these beautiful pastel shades!
To write on my planner I love the Muji erasable pens, in 04mm (below). I have them in black, pink, purple and blue. They are refillable and you can erase the writing using friction with the rubber tip cap. The ink flows nicely and I love how they write so fine without bleeding through the pages!
Whew! That was a lot to talk about! I hope this overview of my favorite pens can help you pick new pens for your projects. I just need to warn you: pens are addicting! I'm always on the look for the next best thing :) Feel free to share your own favorites!
Thank you so much for reading!

Finally, below are my two favorite gel ink pens of all time, the Uni-ball Signo Angelic Color line, in white and green. They're the best gel ink pens I have ever used - the ink flows really smoothly, leaving even and vibrant lines. The only downside is that they run out pretty fast but it's worth it!
The pens I always use to doodle are my Sakura Pigma Micron archival ink pens, in 005, 03, 04 and 08. They are great to create different lines and strokes and the black ink never skips, staying very dark. They come in a variety of tips and they are worth trying! They do not bleed through the paper.
