Stardom Crafts 18 Liquid Chalk Markers Review





I absolutely love experimenting with new art supplies.
I received the 18 Liquid Chalk Marker Set from Stardom Crafts.

The set comes with every color you could possibly want to draw/doodle with.
They are recommended for use on: glass, plastic, Metal, Glossy Boards, LED boards and non-porous surfaces.
They're non-toxic, water based and easily clean up with water.

As you can see above, I tested them on a window on the front of my house.
To use each marker, you shake them first and press them down for about a minute to get the color to flow to the tip.

I love how vibrant and painterly the colors are.
I'll admit I got impatient waiting for the colors to start flowing the first time I use each marker.
However, these chalk markers are quality and the colors lasted through two large thunderstorms under my covered porch.

They wiped off fairly clean, there was very little residue left on my window.
I've gotten a lot of color out of these markers so far, they're durable. They seem like they will last a long time.

I plan on using these to continuously decorate my classroom door for special events and announcements.
They sure beat out those waxy-type window markers any day.

Review: Matcha Tea Ceremony Gift Set by Matcha DNA


Sketch of the Matcha Tea Ceremony Gift Set


I've always had a love for tea and coffee, with or without caffeine.
When I went through my phase of finding better health at the beginning of 2015...I discovered the powerful matcha powder.

Matcha Green tea is filled with antioxidants and makes me feel empowered.
The awesome people over Matcha DNA sent me their beautiful Ceremony Tea Set to try.
It's packaged in a lovely box and includes a package of their matcha green tea powder, a bowl, cup, spoon and a wooden whisk.

I admit that I mainly have been using matcha in my protein shakes but this tea is really great made the proper way with the whisk and the bowl.

I highly recommend this set for any tea lover, it's small but doesn't skimp on the quality. It could really make a really nice gift for a loved one.

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.

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.
