FAB FIND: Pilot FRIXION Pen

Love, love, love finding new, awesome stuff!  Like this nifty Pilot FIXION pen.

Pilot Fixion pen

Yeah, yeah.  I hear yah.  It's a pen.  What's so special about that?

Well, folks, this here pen, aside from being a smooth writing instrument, uses erasable ink.  Yes, you read right.  Just like a pencil, you can easily erase pen mark mistakes with this pen.


A lot of research has gone into making a FRIXION pen (if you're interested to learn more, just head on over to the jetpens.com site where they explain the science behind this amazing product), but to explain in simplest terms, the ink is "erased" when exposed to heat (which is usually what happens when you rub or apply friction.

Now you see it...

There's a nib at one end that functions as the eraser (yes, it's replaceable if you wish to do so).

Now you don't.

I haven't actually tried using erasing the ink using anything else but the nib attached to the pen.  This experiment I leave to other more scientifically-inclined bloggers. 

There is a downside though, the ink (whether in the pen or written on paper) when exposed to very high temperatures (60 degrees C) will become invisible.  To make the ink reappear, simply place the pen, or your paper, inside the freezer and the ink reappears again.  I would not recommend signing important documents or answering test papers with this thing.

Warning!

But come on!  It's a freakin' eraseable pen!!!  If that doesn't impress you, I don't know what will.  :)

Pilot's FRIXION line also carries highlighters and colored pencils.  Selling at S$2.10 (approx Php70.00) in major stationary shops in Singapore.

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
