I had started doing a monthly-favorites post series, but as you probably know, we are currently raising money for our trip to Ukraine this summer. So we put ourself on a spending freeze. Which means I didn't have any new products to share with you last month! But we recently purchased some much-needed office supplies, and I fell in love with these pens. So I thought this post could double as a monthly favorites post!

I, like many people in this world, am addicted to office supplies. And more specifically, pens. I'm always on the hunt for The World's Greatest Pen. I have built up quite a stash, yet there a few I keep coming back to. So I thought I'd share with you my current favorite pens!

My husband recently bought a pack of the Pentel EnerGel Liquid Gel Ink pens, and I might have stolen one from him! They write super smoothly. I love that they are completely opaque and that the ink dries quickly. It is a unique hybrid of gel and ink, with a tiny needle-point tip that I find very easy to use.

The Sharpee Pen has also been a long-time fave of mine, but recently they came out with a stainless steel body that you can refill. It has a heavier weight than the regular Sharpee Pens, and it looks so much cooler!

The Faber Castell pens are widely used by artists. I'm not an artist, but I do dabble sometimes. I got the XS pen, and I love it. It is great for when you need to write something very small or fill in tiny details!

The Uniball Jetstream has always been a long-time favorite of mine ever since undergrad, which has been over 10 years ago (eek,  I'm getting old!)... It writes smoothly and is great for taking quick notes. Note: I took ALL of my notes in college by hand using the Uniball Jetstream pens. I needed something that could write FAST to keep up with my professors' lectures!

So, what's your current favorite pen? Have you found The World's Greatest Pen, yet? If so, please tell me! Have any other pens or office supplies you'd like me to review? Leave a comment below!
