Review: Ander Blake Company 12 Color Gallery Acrylic Paint Set

Have you seen this paint set from the Ander Blake Company?

The 12 Color Gallery Acrylic Paint set is an awesome value!
The tubes are small but last as a little goes a long way.
The paint colors are highly pigmented and can be thinned with water or acrylic medium.
The colors also mix extremely well.

I have used these paints so far by painting on paper and making monotypes (prints) with a gel plate.
The paint consistency is very smooth and buttery in texture.

I highly recommend these paints to anyone in the market looking for a small, affordable and quality set of acrylic paints.

You can get your very own set here: 12 Color Gallery Acrylic Paint Set

My Konjac Sponge!

When I was a teenager, I somehow missed the phase of having acne.
However, now that I'm in my late 20s, hello blemishes.

I have no patience when it comes to acne and honestly, I had no idea how to treat it either.
I read up on activated charcoal sponges and I found My Konjac Sponge.

This powerful little gray sponge is phenomenal.
It lathers and cleans my face quickly.
I adore the fact that it's completely 100% natural.
It's PH balanced and Biodegradable.
I don't feel any residue on my skin, which I love.
It helps my acne not re-appear.
Another great sustainable product!

I definitely suggest you get your own My Konjac Sponge.

SmarterBaking Non-Stick Silicone Baking mat Review

I bake all the time.
It's not always the highest quality foods.
Sometimes it's something frozen.

When I'm baking though, I really despise the waste from parchment paper and aluminum foil.
I recently decided to look into the trend of using a silicone baking mat.
I discovered the Smarter Baking Mat.

The Smarter Baking Mat is phenomenal.
So far I have used it over ten times in my few weeks of having it.
I have "baked" fish, sweet potato fries, chicken, zucchini chips, pizza and granola bars on it successfully.

So many PROS with this mat:
I love the fact that I am not wasting aluminum foil and I am saving money with this gem of a product.
It's super easily to clean and really is a non-stick surface.
The mat can easily be stored.
My husband even uses it!
I cannot honestly say enough good things about the Smarter Baking Mat.
It would make an awesome gift for a friend or even your own kitchen!

Birth of Venus On my Socks! Socks Max Review

I love a good pair of off the wall socks. No really, I do.
My friends have even added to my weird sock collection over the years.
I have socks with shamrock patterns, dinosaurs with lightning bolts, batman socks with capes, just to name a few of my more interesting pairs.

So when I got the chance to review a really sweet sock company called Socks Max, I jumped at the chance (probably with socks on).

I received this pair of socks: Birth of Venus.
The socks incredibly cozy and I absolutely love the colors.
They reach my mid-calf and are considered crew socks.
They seem very durable thus far.
The print is incredibly awesome.
I want to start collecting more of their socks...SneakerHeads exist but do SockHeads?

I highly recommend them.

WashGuard Laundry Bags Review

The one thing I seem to never be on top of around the house is... laundry.
It piles up easily and I constantly cannot find all of M's socks.

Well, I have found a solution.
The IX Better Home Wash Guard Laundry Bags are the perfect addition to my laundry routine.

I just pop my delicates and small laundry items in the bags, throw it in the washing machine and wash my laundry as usual. They're great because they're light, don't do any damage to my washer or clothes, and I even can keep my socks together!

The only con I have with this product, is that in it's second use in my washing machine...the bag had a small hole on the back. However, the hole didn't seem to effect it working properly. If you are looking for laundry bags for your delicates, check out IX Better Home Wash Guard Laundry Bags.

Masterclass Premium Hardcover Sketchbook Review

M's favorite activities involve making new discoveries...
Recently he's become infatuated with green crayons and his watercolor markers.

I don't mind his obsession with paper (or wanting to shred it, usually).
However, what happens if he creates something great?!
How would I be able to keep it safe?!

Then, I found a pretty great sketchbook for him to doodle his little wild heart out.
The Masterclass Premium Hardcover Sketchbook is helping me preserve his messes/works of art.

The size is 9x12 inches.
It is spiral bound, with a sturdy cover.
It comes with 100 sheets of bright, white acid-free, 60lb paper.
Even though it's mainly for dry media, it holds up to my toddler's drool and his watercolors.

It's durable and I can see how this sketchbook could last a long time.
If you need a sketchbook, you definitely should check out the Masterclass Premium Hardcover Sketchbook .
