Say Hello to my Cocoiro Pens!

On my short visit to Manila, I asked my friend to meet me up at SM Aura because I wanted to check out two stores there - Living Well and Scribe Writing Essentials. If you're a crafter or calligrapher you know very well that these stores are heaven.

I visited Living Well once when I was still in Manila. It was a really nice store, especially if you're a scrapper - they have tons of materials for scrapbooking! No pens back then, though. So imagine how excited I am when I recently found out that they do now carry some brands of brush pens AND Webster's Pages planners!

Scribe, on the other hand, didn't really caught my attention at first - calligraphy nibs and inks were not my "cup of tea" before. It is only now, where I'm living far from the city, that I rediscovered my love for hand lettering that makes me think of Scribe all the time. 

If my love for lettering were only rekindled while I was still in Manila, I could've brought some before we transferred here. *grin*

So after spending almost 2 hours of coming back and forth from these two stores, I finally have my own ZIG Kuretake Cocoiro Letter Pens. 

I bought all of them at Living Well. Scribe also has Cocoiros, but I found most of the colors I want from Living Well. If only I could get all the colors of the letter pen body, I'll get them all. But I have to constantly remind myself to just get what I REALLY want and need. I still have to be reasonable when buying or else I would end up hoarding! Lol!

So here goes my Cocoiro Team! All from Living Well, SM Aura.

So beautiful! 

Given a chance again to buy more letter pen body, I'd like to have Warm Chestnut and Jet Black to add to the team, plus some refills for each body of course. Hopefully, I'll get to complete my Cocoiro Team someday - 5 beautiful colors of letter pen body with really nice refills. *wink*
