Hilarious commercial for BIC permanent markers. Mary… Change your telephone number! 

As if our love of all things BIC Cristal couldn’t grow any more insane!! They’ve released a Cristal Stylus Pen! Ballpoint tip for jotting down notes on paper and a rubber bottom for working your touchscreen device.

 

But what’s up with the US version? The silver version (top two images) resembles the classic Cristal design that we love so much. The US version is kinda… blah. Do Stateside people really need a pen clip?

LET’S GET IT STARTED!

As much as we want to horde ALL THE BICs… we won’t. So while we’ll be keepin’ one of each new BIC Cristal we find, the rest we’re layin’ out on the table for you RAHstrs. Get your own collection started with these sweet starter packs.

We got some sets with all black or blue ink, and some kick-ass ombre styles that include scented ink (who doesn’t want a minty pen?). These BIC Cristals hail from all over the globe – a nice lil’ kit to get you started!

GOLDENROD PENCILS, REEBOK FREESTYLES & BIC CRISTALS

I don’t know what came first – my obsession with goldenrod pencils or sneakers. Flip through my parent’s photo albums and you’ll find photos of me, pencil in hand.

 

A year after our move to the States. From left to right, sister, mom’s friend, brother, mother, and me rockin’ a goldenrod pencil and a sheet of paper.

 

My pencil collection started off heavy on the pink, with a healthy mix of holiday and themed pencils, AND an impressive selection of pencils with toppers. Now my collection is heavy on the goldenrod, with a healthy mix from around the world.

What I didn’t realize was happening during our World Tour? Our hunt for goods planted and nurtured another obsession of mine – the BIC Cristal pen.

 

 

Read the rest of the post to learn how we got started on the BIC love. (Oh, AND to hear how we got started off on that Freestyle collection!)
