Chalkola Chalk Marker Pens Review

Chalkola is a Chalk Marker Company and one of the top selling brands on Amazon.com and Amazon UK & Germany.   Chalkola Markers are bright and vibrant liquid chalk markers which replace the old boring dusty chalks. They are non-toxic and water based and can be easily removed with a wet wipe or wet cloth. The markers can be used on any kind of non porous surface for example chalkboards, windows, labels, ceramic, jars and paper.  The lovely people at Chalkola kindly sent me a selection of their markers to review. 

   

The first thing I noticed is indeed how bright and colourful the pens are, there is a great variety of colours included in each pack. To use the markers, you need to remove the lid and then push the nib down a number of times until the ink covers the nib. We have a chalkboard sticker on our wall, great fun for the kids, although they have only ever used the old fashioned chalks on this. My daughter was intrigued to try them. I must admit I was a bit dubious as to whether I would be able to easily remove the marker pen from the wall but I was proved wrong as it really was just a simple wet wipe to clear it. We decided to get a bit creative and decorate our windows on the door. As you can see the colours apply to the window really well, and they don’t run either, which is a bonus. My daughter really enjoyed drawing little pictures on the window as well, whilst I enjoyed added some decorative flowers to the glass! I have to say that these are really enjoyable markers to use and such great fun, they’re quite therapeutic and my daughter and I spent a good hour just colouring and drawing on the glass.

My Sunday Photo

This week my little family were all struck down by a horrible tummy bug meaning we haven't really left the house at all.  Now that we're better we decided to treat the kids to a day out at The Mountain View Lodge where we followed The Gruffalo Trail to find the Gruffalo! The kids absolutely loved it and so did mummy and daddy!

My Kitchen Wish List

Since we moved into our home three or four years ago, we have stripped and redecorated every room except our kitchen. Im pretty sure in fact the kitchen hasn’t been changed since at least the 90s if not before.

It is in very good condition, however it is very dated. Therefore I have decided to publish my Kitchen Wish List.

First on my list would be a nice new microwave. The Panasonic Microwave Oven has some really great features, with options to grill, steam and bake, it not only cooks all your food in half the time, but preserves its delicious flavour, vitamins and nutrients thanks to a revolutionary Turbo Steam technology. Plus they look fantastic as well.

Jord Wooden Watch Review & Giveaway

I have always loved different and unusual watches. I would buy watches ranging from marcasite antique vintage style watches to rubber strap watches!

So when Jord contacted me offering me the chance to review one of their wooden watches I couldn't resist!

Jord have a beautiful range of men's watches and women's watches, be sure check them out.

I chose the Reece Series Watch in Zebrawood and Emerald retailing at £137, it really is a unique watch. Straight away I knew this watch was the one I wanted. I absolutely love the colour of the face, its simply gorgeous and is complemented beautifully by the Zebrawood, with both dark and light tones.


This really is a watch that stands out from the crowd. It is beautifully presented in a posh black cardboard box and inside in a wooden box of its own you will, lift off the magnetic lid and you will find your watch wrapped around a little hessian pillow. The watch also comes with wood oil and a cleaning/polishing cloth.
