Pens at the London Stationery Show

Posted on May 1, 2017 at 5:55 AM

TheWrittenArtist visited the London Stationery Show at the Business Design Centre in Islington, April 2017.

Tying out pens, yet more pens, and talking to all sorts of people who sell and make pens.

Clients sometimes ask me about pens - in coaching, I tend to use everyday working pens that I can rely on. If you have had a coaching session with TheWrittenArtist you will know that I tend to bring a variety of pens to try out.

Finding the right pens that suit your hand can instantly improve handwriting, and the pleasure of writing.

When I used a fountain pen, years ago, they were still splodgy and splashy. I don't really mind inky fingers, except they can smudge the paper. Fountains pens, even at entry level, have considerably moved on and I think I'm about to become a personal convert.

I was especially impressed with Studio Pens, who allowed me to make and keep a lovely wee fountain pen similar to this:

Clients ask and I respond. I will be starting a new page on this site of my pen discoveries and recommendations, perhaps even a shop. It's very personal how a pen feels in the hand and to write with. It's a quest. Perhaps you are already a collector of these beautiful and practical artefacts. They express words, they communicate meanings. The pen is mightier than the computer.

Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill?

Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all.

Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients?

One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill.

It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label.

The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on 'some' of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided.

If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see 'results not typical' printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don't expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim.

Wouldn't it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available.
