  6. Annie G.
    / 5:10 pm

    My gifted book of Calming Colouring Patterns, used when I’m ‘hooked up’ for Chemo, would perfect to use the Pop’lol gel pens. I plan to convert the completed coloured pages into cards to thank the many friends and family members who have been so supportive, keeping my outlook positive.

  7. Heather Pitkeathly
    / 4:38 pm

    My litrle Miss 4 is super excited and proud learning to write new words everyday. It definitely would colour her day like a rainbow if I won the Pop’lol gel ink pens for her.

    Boring study notes I fear!

    As not passing is a sin.

  13. Sascha Harder
    / 8:19 am

    I’m in a long distance relationship, so I could use the pens to write post it notes of everything we do whilst we are together; and everything I love about us and put them in a mason jar to read whenever I’m particularly lonely.

  14. Elisabeth Martins

  17. Shellie McCulloch
    / 8:24 pm

    I would love this set of pens to add some extra bursts of colour to my bullet Journal and my erin Condren planner (once it gets here). I love writing with bright colours as it brings such happiness to my heart not only while I’m writing (and doodling) but also when I look back over my pages. It’s such​a fantastic way to add an extra layer of emotion to your recollections.

  18. Eva Kiraly
    / 7:05 pm

    I’d get my son to draw his name all over my books along with some artwork so I can smile every day at his works.

  19. Melissa Carroll
    / 7:01 pm

    I think I’d try colour coding everything e.g. Red for medical (I have a little prem warrior), green for outdoors (lawns etc), blue for hubby, pink for me, orange for my son, purple for the house etc.

  20. MGillies
    / 6:39 pm

    Colour is what truly makes the world wonderful and these amazing pens would add a splash of delight for myself and my family to enjoy

    with winter being so bleak having coloured pens in my life to write poetry that pops with life from the page

  22. Amanda Agustin
    / 4:26 pm

    I dearly love to draw using pens. For me it is relaxing and gives me a great sense of calm, self-awareness – which is an elusive feeling in our busy lives. I almost always draw in black ink – but would love to make friends with Roy G Biv!

  23. Michelle Sheehan
    / 4:08 pm

    A little bit of purple on the rim, a little bit of red or something bright! A little bit of blue on the side, a little bit of yellow that will be bright! Colour will turn my black and white papers into the creative mindset I have in a visual formation!

  26. Shannon Wotton
    / 1:41 pm

    These pop’lol pens would brighten my days!
    I would use them in so so many ways.

    I work in a kindergarten class and always avid red when marking homework. I always use bright colours, stickers and stamps so when correction is need it’s bright and happy. So I would use them at school.

  29. Kathy Agostino

  33. Rosemarie De Bari
    / 12:22 pm

  35. Joanna Harrison
    / 7:40 am

    From daily planning, shopping lists and colouring with the kids; these pens would colour our world with fun and creativity! My favourite would be seeing the drawings my kids come up with and the beautiful cards they would make for their friends :)

  36. ladymoogoo
    / 11:47 pm

    MEAL PLANNING!!! This working mama needs to get on top of this whole meal planning thing. I think the gorgeous pens will help me on my way and help me colour code various meals/ ingredients/ days. Time to get organsed.

  37. lexy
    / 5:22 pm

    Add colour to my lists of “to do”,
    Make them look more appealing to breeze through,
    Use colour on my cards and when I write a letter,
    With Gel pens everything looks so much better,

  38. Tamara Lamb
    / 12:48 pm

    My son suffers from anxiety and finds colouring very calming. I would brighten his world with these beautiful pens!

  39. Court
    / 5:37 am

    I would use them to colour in the terribly boring anatomy diagrams I use to study in medical school :) half way through (and poor to boot) and these would be a lifesaver x

  40. Alicia Bardsley
    / 9:21 pm

    I know my budding 9-year-old artist would snaffle these and I would be surrounded by beautifully coloured, hand drawn artwork.

  41. Sarah Light
    / 7:39 pm

    I would use them as encouragement for my son to expand his writing. He has got colourful ideas it struggles to write them down.

  42. Sharon Markwell
    / 1:44 pm

    My mother-in-law is 92 years old and loves adult colouring-in books so to win a Pop’lol Gel Ink Pen Set would brighten her life.

  43. Karen Edwards

  44. Julia Mason

  54. Jennifer B.

  55. Alice
    / 3:30 pm

    I have 4 units at uni and 3 casual jobs, so I write these in different corners and colours of my old faithful bic 4 colour pen. I always mean to buy extra pens because 4 pens isn’t enough for my minimum 7 things to keep on top of.

  56. Abba Flores
    / 10:40 am

    I would colour my world and use it to doodle on my notepads and write important events on my weekly planner.

  57. Lara Daebritz
    / 11:10 pm

    I’m a teacher – so much marking to do;
    Overuse of the RED pen is making me blue
    I need different shades…bright and new!

  58. Rebecca Gallen
    / 9:15 pm

    I wont be running out of ideas with these de-pen-dable pens. I’m all write to draw in my colouring book, without putting a cap on my imagination.

  59. Mel
    / 9:03 pm

    I would use them to brighten up all those dull days in my day planner!!
    These gorgeous pens would really make those days pop,
    Instead of avoiding the boring ones you’d want to write and not stop!!

  60. San Watts
    / 5:47 pm

    I have never outgrown playing with colour.
    With Pilot pens, the sky’s the limit!

  61. Jocy
    / 5:25 pm

    My daughter creates such beautiful artwork. I’d give these to her to draw some more pictures to adorn our walls and remind me of her everyday.

  62. Amelia
    / 4:09 pm

    I work in engineering in a male-dominated office. My mundane black pens from the stationary cupboard are forever getting lost (read: being borrowed and never returned). Oh to have some bright and particularly feminine gel pens to ward off those pen nickers!

  63. Hayley
    / 7:25 am

    I’m always writing in my diary to keep track of things to do and appointments and I’m always writing lists of things to do. I’d love some pretty practical new pens to use instead of my boring plastic blue biro.

  64. Lauren Dean
    / 7:45 pm

    I would love to use these beautiful Pop’lol Gel Pens to draw colourful pictures for my bedroom. I am wanting to create a colourful vibrant room and these pens would be perfect for achieving that.

  65. eternalconflux
    / 3:47 pm

    I would be able to remove the monotony of my everyday life with the vast spectrum of colours. It would brighten me up every time i sit down to my desk and be the rainbow of my life!

  66. Dawn Taylor
    / 2:45 pm

    I can’t hold pens, pencils or anything anymore, but the pens will still bring a pop of colour to my life, I’ll think of how much fun they will bring to the Aussie Helpers family that will receive them in the package of goodies Aussie Helpers will take round to them at Christmas time.

  67. Linda
    / 1:53 pm

    I would use these in my planner, making to do lists or shopping lists. They would make them colourful and pretty!

    / 9:21 am

    The shopping list, hubby’s ‘to do’ list, notes to teachers will now be popping! No more boring black or bland blue. No way! Colour my world wonderful.

  69. Sarah J
    / 11:09 pm

    It’s my daughters first year of school,
    Who wouldn’t look cool,
    With a Pop’lol Gel Ink Pen Set,
    I’d be the best mum I bet;
    With lunch orders, homework and projects too,
    The bright rainbows colours will get me through.

  70. Fayesie Pollard
    / 10:38 pm

    Having different colours helps me with my OCD issues (lol)… A different colour is required for different entries in my diary, etc. These pens have my ‘issues’ covered.

  71. mandachic
    / 4:47 pm

    When mindfulness colouring is all the rage, these pilot pens are ideal for me to use at my age!

  72. mystrez
    / 2:07 pm

    I’d give them to my daughter to add to her art supplies and see what colourful creations I get back!

  73. Tess Howard
    / 8:49 am

    You know how boring those ‘To Do’ lists are? These babies would make me smile as I go about planning my day. I may let the kidlets borrow them as a reward.

  74. Peta Hankin
    / 2:08 am

    Anything and everything that will allow me haha

  75. Karen Thompson
    / 10:36 pm

    These would be great to use at work for marking the students work, instead of the usual bland pens.

  76. jessiechibber
    / 10:32 pm

    I love getting crafty and these would be perfect to bring out my inner creative genius and create a bit of paper magic!

  77. Sophie Gavrilidis
    / 10:03 pm

    Can use them to write out all my chores and groceries so its more exciting for me to get them done.

  78. Lara O'Neill
    / 9:04 pm

    Sometimes diaries can become rather drab, but you can easily jazz up your days with these gorgeous pens! I’d have to hide them from my kids ;-)

  79. Adrienne HARRIES
    / 8:35 pm

    doodling and coloring releases stress and makes plain paper fun
    Colouring Its something i can share with everyone

  80. Viki
    / 8:25 pm

    These pens would definitely add a pop of colour and vibrance to my life when it comes to being creative! I’ve tried to get back into arts and crafts and these would be a perfect addition to some new projects!

  81. Dianne
    / 3:27 pm

    They look fabulous, for my planning boards, calendar and even colouring, which I never thought would be therapeutic, but oddly enough is – definitely not just for children any more! Thanks Mim

  82. Nicole
    / 2:06 pm

    To brighten my adult colouring in books. I suffer from anxiety and colouring soothes me and the brighter the better

  83. Jade O
    / 1:56 pm

    My younger brother would love these plus my daily planner might become more colourful and enticing

  84. Ashley Beech
    / 10:12 am

    Simple; i’d give them to my daughter
    to light up her life
    because with her around me each day
    she lights mine up!

  85. Louise Patterson
    / 9:40 pm

    I’d use these to make everyday pop ! Absent notes to pop to the teachers, writing love notes to pop in my husband’s lunchbox and colour coordinating everything in my planner will make it pop. I think they’d even look great if I popped them into a vase on my desk :) lol

  86. jane gardam
    / 9:23 pm

    If I win these I am going to have to share, I thought about hiding them but that’s just mean. My daughter and I would actually love these to colour our lovely new adult colouring books, but we also both just like to draw and would love these to add some beautiful colours to our drawings.

  87. Amanda Eve
    / 3:00 pm

    My nearly four year old adores drawing, and this would be perfect for me to do with her. Being allowed to use “Mum’s special pens” also provides extra motivation for her less eager older brother!

  88. Indria Purnamasari
    / 2:04 pm

    This will be perfect for my daughter who likes to do colouring. She will treasure it!

  89. Shelle Belle
    / 1:37 pm

    I am a basic knitter and cannot read patterns yet, so I design my own.
    These pens would be perfect for those designs, as I make them all patchwork knitting.

  90. Carolyn
    / 10:09 am

    They would make writing my to-do-lists and grocery lists and lot more fun and colourful and bring a smile to an otherwise dreary task.

  91. Melanie
    / 9:39 am

    My dog ate all my pens :-(

  92. madelaine howe
    / 7:55 am

    I draw on my walls so these would look great!

  93. Paula H
    / 7:53 am

    I’d give them to my 13 year old daughter, who leaves lovely messages for me thru the house…
    “don’t touch ma milk”, “mum, can I please have $10?” or my favourite, “wake me, if I’m not up by lunch”

  94. Halabia
    / 6:44 am

    I would use them at uni to turn calculus into something bright and exciting. Maybe then it’ll be more bearable taking notes

  95. Michelle (inthegoodbooksblog)
    / 6:31 am

    I’d use them for a whole range of things, included colouring in mandalas, writing notes for my book reviews, jotting down shopping lists (which always seems to include chocolate and hair ties – where do all the hair ties go??), and for scoring games of Uno when the kids and I play.

  96. Charl L.
    / 12:40 am

    To do lists become more fun, shopping lists and other notes too, adding some colour will help with the everyday things!

  97. Rebecca Smith
    / 11:51 pm

    I would colour the life of my artistic 9 year old daughter with these amazing pens.

  98. Kim Miller
    / 11:13 pm

    These pens will put a pop of colour in everything I do but they will be especially great when sending out invitations.

  99. Jody Smith
    / 11:07 pm

    There’s a lot of language learning going on in our house. Post it notes everywhere to label items to be learned. New vocabulary could pop in colour and increase motivation.

  100. Karen Mashford
    / 10:40 pm

    Since my memory is shocking, I could always use different colours for different reasons when leaving notes all around the house, eg: green for things to do in the garden, pink for shopping etc – love stationery and colour makes life awesome.

  101. Samara McRae
    / 9:52 pm

    I would leave colourful notes around the house for my family to find and make them smile. I would make homemade cards for all occasions, and I would colour in with my son.

  102. sharyn w
    / 9:29 pm

    i have just bought myself a gratitude journal and this would make my entries colourful and free, which is actually what i am trying to teach my mind to be.

  103. Tess
    / 9:29 pm

    I would finally have no excuse to not start my mindful colouring in books, with Pop’lol Gel gorgeous ink pens I would be so lucky!

  104. Maree Gray
    / 8:43 pm

    I would use these lovely pens at work to brighten up my notes and turn a dull day into a rainbow of colour :)

  105. Irene Kelly
    / 8:37 pm

    I’m a stationery lover! I’ve always liked Pilot since I was in High school and have used it for over 25 years now. Seeing these beautiful colours makes me drool so much! ???? My favourites are Pilot 0.38 Juice, Pilot G tech in 0.3 & 0.4, and Pilot G2 in 0.7, 0.5 & 0.38 nib sizes. ????

  106. Beth
    / 8:03 pm

    Pop’lol would pop some colouring into my mundane marking. Students would find a rainbow of comments instead of red ink!

  107. Emily
    / 7:51 pm

    These pens would definitely spruce up my bullet journal, which is fairly minimalistic at the moment. I would probably use them the most to add contrasting stroke weights to my thicker brush pens and tie together months with beautiful colour schemes.

  108. wendyhatton
    / 7:32 pm

    I was given a pad of colouring pages by a friend but must say that coloured pencils don’t do the illustrations justice. Pop’lol Gel Ink pens will make the final results very vibrant indeed.

  109. Charlotte B
    / 7:32 pm

    Bright colours cheer anyone up. A splash of colour can have an amazing effect – just look how people react when they see a rainbow.

  110. Ryan H

    By putting a smile on my girls face which is colourful.

  111. Heidi Tyack
    / 7:23 pm

    I would use these beautiful pens to write in my gratitude journal every night! That would really brighten up my current practice! <3

  112. May
    / 7:19 pm

    Yes yes yes! These pens are absolutely gorgeous. And how I’d love to get my mittens on all thirty of them! But I digress.

    How would I use them to add a pop of colour in my life? Why, get my 4yo involved, of course! We could give each other temporary tattoos or use them to add colour to his cardboard box creations! From cardboard shields with wicked coats of colourful arms to radical cardboard snow shoes. It’d be fun to add colour to our usual brown creations and it would help me sneakily get Mr 4 to hold a pen which he usually doesn’t want to do.

  113. Joni Langos
    / 6:44 pm

    I would take them to work to use for the 100’s of post it note reminders that I write for my colleagues each day.

  114. Rebecca
    / 5:47 pm

    These pens would bring some well needed brightness to this dreary weather! My little one and I spend a lot of time colouring when it’s raining outside, so we could use these to make our own beautiful rainbow indoors!

  115. Shannon
    / 3:52 pm

    My daughter and I just bought a huge adult colouring poster of a dream catcher these would be fantastic we’ve not had a chance to start it yet ????

  116. Jordana
    / 3:38 pm

    I’m trying to find time between getting my 6month old to nap and doing my housework to finally illustrate the alphabet poster I’ve been working on since before my son was born! These pens would be ideal for bringing the letters and illustrations to life!

  117. Kellie heaton
    / 3:37 pm

    My daughter colours my world everyday .
    I would give her these pens to bring some colour to hers .

  118. Tracy Wedding

    i could use them with my adult colouring books and they would make the dot to dot books look colourful too

  119. Chont

    I use adult colouring in books to help calm me as 3 of us have disabilities. Gel pens make very vibrant pictures

  120. Joanne Cardamone

    I just love doodling and having all the colours of the rainbow and more would make them pop out of the paper

  121. Nicole Kent
    / 3:23 pm

    I would give each child a separate colour for each day as a great way to keep a track of all of their activities and appointments for the week.

  122. Deborah Bolam
    / 3:16 pm

    I love pens these would be great to do my crossword puzzles with and I have also started colouring in in adult colouring books

    I would use these pens to colour in adult posters, mandalas, I have a coloring in book titled IN BLOOM, which also has daily sayings. I would definitely use them to colour in this book. Better than coloured pencils.

    My kids would get to these before me and add colour to my life by creating lots of beautiful pictures and cards for me!

    From writing in my diary to penning a birthday card to mindful colouring to scribbling the kids’ lunch orders!
    These delightful writing tools would fill my day with a kaleidoscope of colour.
