Welcome to the THIRD edition of Monthly Inked! Started from when I began working from home during lockdown and turned into a fun habit of giving my pens some much-needed love throughout the year as well as a chance to use my amassed collection of inks. Every month, I pick a new pen and ink pairing. Two pens and two inks to use for work. The primary for regular note taking and drawing while the secondary stands as a highlight/accent colour. If I’ve done a review for the pen, then there will be a link to the review as well.
Thanks again for joining along. The page gets updated monthly with each rotation and remains pinned at the top of the blog!
Update December 2022: That’s a wrap!! And of course, we have to finish with a bang, with my two current most prized pens (in value and in beauty ^_^). Happy 2022 and thanks for following along with my rotations every month.
