Pentel Mechanical Drafting Pencil & Gel Pen Shoplet Review

Shoplet Pentel Review

The Pentel Sharp Mechanical Drafting Pencil is Pentel’s #1 selling mechanical pencil. Now that my son is getting older and we use so many pencils during the school year I am having him to start using mechanical pencils so these will definitely be a great addition to our homeschool. These pencils are great for professional, students or just for everyday writing.



Pentel Sharp Mechanical Drafting Pencil

Pentel Sharp Mechanical Drafting Pencil

These come pre-loaded with 6 sticks of Pentel Super Hi-Polymer 0.7mm Medium HB Lead (same as a #2 pencil). I love mechanical pencils because you never have to sharpen them. We tried mechanical pencils before but the lead sticks would break so easy but we have not had that problem with these, they are a lot stronger than similar products. The 4mm tip design makes it easy to use with rulers & templates too and creates a strong dark line. It has a silver cap that protects the latex-free eraser. Both the eraser and lead sticks are refilleable with Pentel products. These also have a clip so you can clip to notebooks, folders or pockets for easy storage and quick reach. These are awesome! They write very well and my son hasn’t complained about these like he did similar products. Definitely a high quality product that makes school work easy.


Pentel EnerGel Alloy Retrctable Gel Pen

I also was sent the Pentel EnerGel Alloy Retrctable Gel Pen. I love the color and design of this pen (my favorite color is blue) so I had to hide it in my purse before my husband got ahold of it. It uses black gel ink that dries quickly so no smearing. It glides across the paper for clean, smooth writing. Great for professionals or every day use. It has a clip so you can clip it inside your checkbook, notebooks or even your pocket. It is also retractable so you don’t have to worry about ink leaking or getting on wherever you are storing it. Another great product from Pentel.


Shoplet is the #1 e-tailer off business and office supplies including these great Pentel products. They also carry cleaning supplies, medical supplies and office furniture and much more!

Perfect Gift Idea for Girls – Girl’s Cubic Zirconia Butterfly Necklace Gift Set

Box Me Not Butterfly Necklace Gift Set


My daughter has a lot of pretend toy necklaces but wanted a real one like mom. So when I was given the chance to review a Girl’s Cubic Zirconia Butterfly Necklace I knew she would be thrilled. I was right! She has refused to take this off for the past 2 weeks and she shows it off to everyone.

About Girl’s Cubic Zirconia Butterfly Necklace Gift Set

  • delicate butterfly necklace carefully crafted of multi-colored cubic zirconia crystals in white gold-plated metal alloy setting, 17″ chain with spring ring clasp
  • comes in purple and pink velour jewelry box in the shape of a butterfly (measures 2 3/8″L x 2″W)
  • includes keepsake bookmark (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) with the inspirational quote “Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly…”
  • made to last, be allergy free and safe for children to wear (nickel and lead free)
  • each package is assembled by hand and ready to gift in a beautiful 8″ x 12″ purple organza gift bag

Butterfly Necklace Box Me Not

The necklace comes in an adorable pink and purple velour butterfly jewelry box. The necklace seems to be made very well and pretty durable. She has been wearing it for 2 weeks now and there has been no issues with loose stones, the chain turning color or green skin. My daughter is 5 and the chain fits her really well, it’s not too long and not too short. The chain is very pretty and is not thin and fragile. This is a great gift for a little girl her age because it is affordable so if it gets lost and damaged you are not out a lot. It paves the way for bigger more expensive jewelry as she gets older. For now she is so happy with it and I was glad that I was able to get it for her.


This makes a great gift and you can get this Girl’s Cubic Zirconia Butterfly Necklace Gift Set on Amazon today.

Mark Dubowitz Courting Justice Book Review

Mark Dubowitz Courting Justice Book Review


I found this book to be pretty informative on the topic of US sanctions agains Iran. There are plenty of citations which is nice because it gives you a good starting point for doing your own research on the subject. I would suggest this book to someone who needs a solid starting point in their research of US foreign policy with Iran. I especially liked that the author started with the 2015 sanctions lift from Iran and how it did nothing to slow their terrorist activity on the US instead it only increased it. This gives the reader important insight into current events and sets the tone for the book. I found the book to be a little difficult to follow because it was written more like a school paper than a flowing storyline. However, the book is very informative and educational. The author’s passion on the subject cannot be denied yet he kept bias-neutral and stuck to the facts. If you give this book a real chance, you will not be dissappointed.  The information contained in this tiny little book is absolutely astounding!  The audacity of Iran and the typical hands-tied America cat and mouse game is at its finest in this book.  If you are into this sort of thing then you have to give it a try.
