I'm a Pen Snob: BIC® 4-Color™ Pen *Review*


I must admit when it comes to my school and office supplies, I'm a little kid. Especially when I go down that particular isle in the store! You haven't seen anything until you've seen me squealing over fresh notebooks and drooling over some beautiful pens.

Speaking of pens, I'm definitely a pen snob. I LOVE my pens, however I'm very picky when it comes to which I use.

BIC is probably at the top of that preferred list of mine, so when given the opportunity to test out the BIC® 4-Color™ Pen I was pretty darn excited! Not only that but I was sent two pens-one to use for myself and one to gift to whomever I saw fit.

Since I get my pen snobbiness from my mom, I bet you can take a wild guess at who the second pen went to...


My Momma & I with our BIC Pens!

I wanted to wrap a little bow around the packaging before I gave it to her but wouldn't you know I couldn't find any ribbon! It was the day after Christmas too, so you'd think ribbon would be plentiful!

Anywho, mom got quite excited when she realized what this special pen was because she remembers having these pens when she was growing up.

More the BIC® 4-Color™ Pen:

"Make writing fun with BIC® 4-Color™ Pens. At the click of a button, you can choose from 4 colors (red, green, blue and black) to fit any mood you’re in and take on any writing task at hand! BIC® 4-Color™ Pen is four ink colors in one! With four ink choices, you can use it to write your seasonal shopping list, thank you notes, or to share your winter recipes with loved ones. It’s perfect for color-coding your lists or even your New Year’s Resolutions."

Once received, I was encouraged to start a project with my nifty 4 colored pen but it took me awhile to figure out what I actually wanted to do. I was drawing a HUGE blank there for awhile until my boyfriend gave me the perfect inspiration in the form of a very thoughtful gift: a 2013 Owl calendar.

I have a 'Thing' for a fresh, new calendar as well as Owls of any kind, so major brownie points go to the BF once again!

With my BIC® 4-Color™ Pen, I was able to go through each month in the calendar and use the different colors for different dates to remember; holidays like Halloween and Earth day, birthdays, anniversaries, memorable dates...



This pen is definitely designated as my 2013 calendar pen!

BIC has some great products but I really quite love the versatility of this pen in particular. I actually have one very similar to this one (also made by BIC) I received at least 3 years ago and it's still in use to this day!

I bought this pen some time ago because my teacher wanted us to write in different colors, and it works it great!
