With so many other studyblrs owning muji pens/sarasas/any other type of high demand pen out there, I feel like we just have to pause and appreciate the wonderful pens by kikki-k.

They are gel (like our bestie muji) but only come in one nib size. BUT they come in a really cute case for easy (and aesthetic) storage!

I purchased them here in Australia for $14.95 (and the labelling says it’s the same for US$). ALSO when you sign up as a member with kikki-k, you get a $10 voucher to spend without a set minimum spending amount!! How cool is that? So I technically purchased these pens for only $4.95 for the whole set.

So far they are quite inky enough (haven’t died on me temporarily… yet).
I use these pens for any “fake calligraphy” I do for my bullet journaling or notes as they are thicker than the 0.38mm muji pens I own, and hence better to colour in.

Such an easy way to make a makeup stand using only two plates and a candle stick. Visit your local Dollar Tree or dollar store to find some decorative or plain plates. You can always decorate them with washi tape!
All you need to do is cover the top and bottom of the candlestick with high performance glue and then attach the plates. Let it dry for a day before putting anything on the plates.

My rehearsal bag

Here’s a look at what I take to rehearsal every day. I’m mainly an ASM, I have a wee bit more stuff I bring when I’m SMing, but for the most part: this is it. The theaters I work at generally provide first aid, tools, and office supplies, so all of this is just what I want/need for myself.  

When I’m in tech, I bring a different (much larger) bag with my blacks etc, and this rehearsal bag goes in with it. I talked about that bag here.

1. Personal items. Treat yo self.

  • Cherry Ricolas (the most delicious flavor of Ricolas)
  • Lip balm
  • Hand lotion
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Mints
  • Hair Tie
  • Captain America water bottle
  • Extra-long charger cable & cube for my phone.

2. Office supplies: Part 1

  • Krazy-glue (the theater usually has some… somewhere… that may or may not be dried out… it’s easier to have my own on hand)
  • Tape dispenser (that weird pink donut-looking thing! It folds in on itself for easy storage!)
  • Scissors
  • Post-its of varying types (post-it flags bunched in groups with the binder clips so they’re not all loose in the bag)
  • Small flashlight
  • Template for drawing blocking/straightedge

3. An Odd Assortment of Objects

  • Universal phone charger: this thing is THEBOMB.COM! A little cable octopus with a standard USB on one end, and 4 different plugs on the other end. iPhone 4? Got it. iPhone 6? Gotcha covered. Mini-USB? Here. Some weird European charger? GOT THAT TOO. Nobody’s phone is dying on my watch.
  • A guitar pick. I kept one on my person at all times doing a show where an actor played the guitar in several scenes, and it made its way into my kit-bag.
  • A teeny tiny eyeglasses screwdriver
  • A key-chain tape measure. It’s only 6′ long, so it’s good for measuring things like table height, etc. (the theater usually has a bunch of normal-sized ones)
  • Thumb drive
  • Earplugs in a little cardboard cover to keep them clean
  • A snarl of safety pins

4. Office supplies: Part 2

  • Mechanical pencils with extra lead & eraser. (this is, hands down, the best kind of mechanical pencil.)
  • White-out pen
  • 2 black Sharpies
  • 1 silver Sharpie

5. Office supplies: FRIXION PENS. If you’re not using them yet, where have you been. Get on this train. They will change your life.

  • Frixion brand erasable pens in 3 colors (black, blue, red)
  • Frixion erasable highlighters
  • Frixion heavy-duty eraser (the little blue thing)

6. The bag! It’s just a men’s toiletries bag from Target. It’s got a divider down the middle and a small interior pocket. Holds all my crap & fits in my backpack!

Not pictured: My laptop & its charger, and my script (which I leave in the rehearsal hall unless I need to work on things at home). 

Also not pictured are the things I keep in my purse/backpack all the time for my own use like ibuprofen, tampons, multitool, etc.

Also Also Not Pictured: My stopwatch?? It was not in the bag when I took the picture. But I have a stopwatch.

The Best Wireless Headphones

Wireless headphones are quickly becoming the new norm (and might become a necessity if the iPhone 7 rumors are true), but which are the best? In terms of cost, performance, and portability, the Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth Wireless Headphones are leading the field. 

Bose’s audio has always been held in high regard, and these headphones are further proof of that. Simply put, there is a lot going on to provide you with the most impeccable sound. The headphones work with Active EQ to get clear, clean highs and deep lows. The audio quality alone distinguishes these headphones as one of the best on the market, regardless of their wireless capabilities.

The SoundLink headphones boast several other impressive characteristics. Two microphones help with noise cancelling and improving the quality of phone calls. They come in at a mere .3 lbs and fold up small enough to fit in their 5x5x2.3 inch case, allowing easy storage and transport. You can expect up to 15 hours of battery life, but don’t worry if you forget to charge them - they even have a wired mode. Also notable, these headphones look clean and sleek; you can choose between white or black with blue accents on both. Of course, all of this comes at a cost ($249.95), but if you’ve got the cash, they’re worth it. 


here’s my sewer diorama! really just wanted to make a back wall and floor for my turtles that are displayed in my detolf shelf. i created the extra wall on the right for displaying out of the case. everything is collapsable for easy storage. all three pipes just plug into the insulation board. 

this was the first time i used hot glue for the water. i ended up adding a bit of green to it to make the water more mucky and dirty looking.
