Throwback Thursday: Quick Look at Lamy Studio Wild Rubin + Diamine Chocolate Brown

I love ink and I love chocolate. So, Diamine Chocolate Brown is right up my alley. Too bad it doesn't smell like chocolate. I have no idea if it tastes like chocolate. Unlike [Azizah][0], I have no appetite for tasting ink.

Pen Review: Lamy Studio Wild Rubin 14k (Special Edition)

About 3 months into my pen habit there was still a notable absence of Lamy fountain pens in my collection.  This terrible omission was rectified when I came into possession of a Lamy Studio.  This is the special edition Wild Rubin released in late 2014.  I bought this pen from Goulet Pens.  It's no longer available at GPC but there is limited stock available in the wild still.  Get this pen while you can if it's something that interests you.

Currently Inked: March 2016

Over the past couple months I've found that I have a hard time keeping track of what ink I have in each of my inked pens.  It probably doesn't help that I could have up to 15 pens inked at any point in time. (Addiction, what addiction?  Seriously, though, paring down the number of inked pens I have is a post for another day and is not something I'm ready to tackle yet). 

Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to track my pen and ink combinations each month in a central place.  This central place will now be a Tomoe River Notebook bound by Coach House Press for Wonderpens in Toronto.  It was easy to select this notebook because I love using Tomoe River paper, and, Wonderpens did a good job making notebooks from this paper.  The notebook is A5 sized and contains 64 pages covered in light card stock, staple bound and is very light and easy to carry around...
