Here's an excerpt from a now-deleted blog post about my every day carry pouch! The post was originally from May 2017.

  1. Raymay Topliner Pen Case - Violet (JetPens) - I bought this case a couple weeks ago and I love it. It holds a lot of pens (including longer pens), has a hard shell and is unicorn colored. Also, it has a carrying handle, which is useless, but is very charming. 
  2. Tombow ABT Dual Brush Pen - 847 - Crimson (JetPens) - I carry 4 Tombow Brush pens in my go-to colors. Crimson is my current red. I do think I will change the red in the future. Crimson is a very deep red and I'm looking for a very pure blue-red. 
  3. Tombow ABT Dual Brush Pen - 443 - Turquoise (JetPens- This is a gorgeous blue. It's so good to look at. I love it. Also, I love these pens because they don't bleed through paper like Copics. 
  4. Tombow ABT Dual Brush Pen - 725 - Rhodamine Red (JetPens) - THIS. IS. A. PERFECT. HOT. PINK. I thought it was going to be struggle to find a good hot pink to carry around, but Tombow had my back. 
  5. Tombow ABT Dual Brush Pen - 623 - Purple Sage (JetPens- Out of all my go-to colors, lilac/lavender is the most difficult to find. Purple sage works as a perfect light purple & works as a great stand in for grays and shadow-making. 
  6. Pentel Pocket Brush Pen (JetPens) - This brush pen is a very popular item among artists. I understand why-- it's super versatile. Thin lines, thick lines and coloring in large spaces. It can do it all! I'm not great at using it for line art (yet) but I LOVE it for coloring.
  7. Faber-Castell PITT Pen 1,5 in Black - This is my pen for thick lines. I'm super into Faber-Castell pens, but this is the only one that made it into my everyday carry pile. (And that was due to the fact I already owned it and needed a nice pen that had the thickness of a papermate flair.)
  8. Sakura Pigma Micron Pen - Size 08 - 0.5 mm (JetPens) - A good ol' standard for medium-sized lines. 
  9. Pilot G-Tec-C Gel Pen - 0.4 mm - Black (JetPens- omg. This pen makes such thin lines. It's so useful! 
  10. Uniball Signo Broad in White (JetPens) - Everyone's go to white pen. Works way better than the Sakura Gelly Roll in white. It's not perfect, but it's pretty great.
  11. Pilot Color Eno Mechanical Pencil - 0.7 mm - Pink Body - Pink Lead (JetPens) - Everyone has got to have a colored led pencil right? Pink is easy to cover up and is cute. Plus, it lets me always have a pink colored pencil on hand. <3
  12. Uni Kuru Toga Roulette Model Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Gun Metallic Body (JetPens) - I don't love this pencil, but it was $15 and I'm going to use it. I switched out from the recommended led and I think I like it even less now. Oh well. 
  13. Pentel ClicEraser - Omg, this eraser is great. I have no comments other than I strongly recommend it for ease of use and portability. It's not the best eraser at erasing, but that is a journey I am not interested in taking. 
  14. Stillman & Birn Beta Sketchbook - Wirebound - 7" x 10" (JetPens) - Yo, this skechbook is a dream boat, but I'll write about that in detail later!
