Review Zebra Mildliners

Hey Everyone

ever since I’ve started my Bullet Journal I got sucked into all the stuff the bujo-community hypes about. I could make a post out of stuff I bought because of that.

Wait… That’s a good idea! But not for today.

Today is all about one of many hyped things. The Zebra Mildliners!

As always I tested them in my Leuchttrum 1917 in A4 size and they do not bleed through but they do ghost a little. I have the most common colors that means 15 pens in total. Honestly I only bought them because there where a discount on them. After using them I noticed that I prefer pastel colors in my bujo when I highlight and such. There are 4 pastel like colors, 3 colors like normal highlight and the rest is pretty strong in terms of color vibrancy.

They are dual ended and you get a thick side and a thinner side. It’s easy to highlight with the thicker side cause it’s already shaped like a highlighter. With the thinner side you can easily write but also do more prize highlighting.

I like them but I think I would be fine without them too. If you are someone who is just starting out then you don’t really need them. They aren’t cheap and depending on where you live shipping will take quiet some time.

If you want highlighters try the Frixion pastel Highlighters.

Do you have the Zebra Mildliners? What do you think about them? Let me know in the comments.

Why I like to Bullet Journal!

Hey Everyone

Today I’m going to tell you, why I like to Bullet Journal.

First

I like the flexibility that comes with it. You see the Bullet Journal system is really easy and you can adjust EVERYTHING from layout, design to fonts and colors.  If you’re someone who likes to draw then why not make everything in your journal artistic? What ever you choose to do and at the end if it works FOR YOU then roll with it.

As for me, I like to highlight things with colors and try new layouts and designs. My Bullet Journal isn’t really artistic and more of a minimalistic Bullet Journal but I’m in love with it.

Second

Maximize your space! Do you ever had a planner and you thought … Shit there are so many blank pages? Or Shit I could use more space than that?
That is something you won’t have in a Bullet Journal. You might have some spaces that are blank but you can easily fill them with some drawings or Stickers. Sure you can do that in a planner too but doing so on whole pages that you could have used for planning?

I like to do the yearly overview, the monthly and the weekly. For now this is enough as my workload gets more I’ll also do some dailies. Even thou there are things that don’t really work I always have the option to chance things up in the next week. That way I’ll find out what works best for me.

Third

The collections are one of my favorites! These are lists or other stuff you don’t want to forget like  the books you’ve read. Or movies you’ve watched. Or you include a memories page for the month or for the year. There you can draw or clue stuff in you want to remember. You could use it as a why to collect ideas for blogging or your YouTube channel. The ideas for this are endless …

As for me my most valued collections are:

1. Random facts about me,
2. My Reasons to be a minimalist,
3. 10 Level Life / 100 Life Goals

Fourth

Tracking. The most useful tool I have ever got to know of! Tracking is what I do the most and you can track EVERYTHING! This is also part of the collections. I track a lot of things like my Tattoo appointments and the expenses I had. I know for a fact that I’ve spent too much money already … Or you could track your behavior, this is also most common in the BuJo Community, your mood, the weather, your health, your weight … ENDLESS!

Other things I keep track of are my fix cost per month, because they all get collected directly from my bank account, Anime I’ve watched (also my longest one), When was the last time I did …, Ideas for gifts, my Blog schedule (New). I’m in the middle of finding a new job so I use this method to keep track with my status of my applications.

Fifth

The Index! Everything that you write in your Journal has a title and this title with it’s page-number is written down in the index on the first view pages. That way you can easily find what you’re looking for.

Sixth

The Key/ Color coating! As for me I don’t have so many of them. I have a dot for task / Events and this ” – ” for any types of notes. If something is important I’ll add a ” ! “. For color coating I only do Birthdays in a dark green. That’s it.

You can do as much as you like with it for me I noticed less is more.

Love you

Frixion Pastel Highlighters

Hey everyone

today I wanted to talk about the Frixion Pastel Highlighters. First… I LOVE THEM!
I started Bullet Journaling in March and I got sucked in badly. Within the community there are a view products that basically everyone has like Tombow dual brush pens, Zebra Mildliners, Leuchtturm 1917 notebook and so on…

Even thou Tombow as well as Zebra Mildliners have Pastel colors I find that the best Pastel colors are the Frixion Pastel Highlighters. I don’t have a Tombow dual brush pen to really compare it to but I do have all Zebra Mildliners. There are some in it that are more on the soft colored side but not as soft as the Frixion Highlighters.

My problem with the Tombow is that when I see a set that I like then I only want one or two colors from it and buying them separately makes them even more expensive. I don’t say that the Zebra Mildliners are cheap because they are probably not. Anyway compared to these two brands these Frixion Highlighters are cheap and really cool. Best of all you can erase them if you made a mistake  .

As I mentioned before I use them in my bullet Journal for highlighting because they aren’t too aggressive or overpowering in the page compared to the writing as you can see in the picture. There is also no bleed through and barely any ghosting going on  and I tried them out in my Leuchttrum 1917 in A5 size which has thinner paper than the A4 size where I also tested them.

I got mine on Etsy by Colorsplashsupplies I hope they’ll restock it again.

See you soon Rin✒
