Full disclosure: My writing isn’t pretty. As much as a lot of women seem to possess the feminine flair in their writing, I don’t.
For this reason, I face an internal struggle every time I purchase a beautiful new notebook from Chapters. I don’t want to taint it with my chicken scratch writing because it’ll offset the beauty of the pages. #StationeryAddict
Nor do I want to take part in “calligraphy” writing. Let’s get serious, who has time to write that immaculately?
Browsing through Instagram’s flat lay feed of perfectly hand-written text in notebooks is the equivalent of watching a Victoria’s Secret fashion show (which I never do). The envy is real.
So what’s a girl to do?
After immense trial and error with pens, I came across one in particular which has made my writing appear aesthetically nicer (keyword here is “nicer” not perfect).
If you’re looking for improvement without having to spend a pretty penny on a fancy pants pen, I highly suggest : “The Hexagonal Pen” from Muji.
This pen is hands down, my all time favourite.
Reasons Why It’s So Great :
- It’s super fine needle point tip (available in 0.25mm — 0.4mm ) The thinner the tip, the more precise your writing!
- Not to mention I love the overall hexagonal design of the pen. Its simplicity, matte texture and overall effectiveness is what makes it a favourite of mine:)
- Bonus points for it being extremely affordable ! Price : 3.75 CAD
Heads up : If you write your heart out with it, you can buy a refill from anywhere between $1.50 – 1.75
At the moment, this Japanese haven doesn’t have an online store for Canada. Nor can you find this store in the 514 (Montreal). If you ever plan a trip to Toronto, Vancouver, New York or even Japan, you can stock up there!
