Chalkola Liquid Chalk Markers

Thank you to Chalkola for sponsoring this post and to all of the brands that support this blog.


No more messy chalk! Not for this teacher! Now it is all about smooth and elegant liquid chalk markers. Chalkola is a chalk marker company that also happens to be one of the top-selling brands on Amazon! Now I know why. I was sent some Chalkola chalk markers to try. So I have been having some fun creating and writing on chalkboards, glass, paper, and so much more!


You don't need a chalkboard! You can use chalk pens on any non-porous surface. Think gym boards, cafe menus, car mirrors, mason jars, wine glasses, and yes, even chalkboards. Chakola pens are non-toxic and water-based, making them great for kids.


I tried a set of 8 earthy colors as well as a pack of 16 that included 6 metallics! It was so much fun to mix and match. To get a new pen started, just shake and press the tip onto a solid surface. The chalk will start to flow. When you want to change your art, just wet a cloth and erase. It is so simple!


Whether you’re a teacher like me, or a mom looking for crafting ideas for kids, chalk pens are a clean alternative to standard chalk or paint! I was so impressed with the variety of colors as well as the quality of the chalk. Even after I erased my art, there was so oily residue left over. Just a clean surface for me to start creating again!


These chalkboard markers not only make my creative heart happy, but they would also make a gift! Pair a set of Chalkola markers with some non-porous art supplies and you have yourself a gift that will make their inner Picasso sing!


Chalkola chalkboard pens are affordable and come in bright, vibrant colors. Small business owners, restaurants, teachers, crafters, kids ... so many people can utilize these markers to create beautiful, fun messages and designs! How would you use Chalkola liquid chalk markers?

Loving Lately


How is your fall, y'all? So far anyway? It actually snowed here yesterday which is tricking me into thinking that we are super close to Christmas. Don't worry, we still have plenty of time to prepare. But it is time for me to share some things with you that I have been loving lately. So here we go!


There are so many liquid lipsticks to choose from! It seems every brand has their own take on this trend - even Burt's Bees! What sets these apart for me is the all-day moisture combined with the affordable price point. These liquid lipsticks glide on smoothly for an intense hit of color. The long-wearing formula leaves lips looking lush and healthy - not dry.


From left to right above: I tested the shades 811 Blush Brook, 830 Wine Waters, 831 Lavender Lake, 804 Peony Puddle, and 821 Drenched Dahilia. Pretty stunning, right? They have that great gloss look without being too sticky. Even better, it is 100% natural and contains conditioning ingredients like apricot and babassu oil, shea butter, and essential fatty acids.


Rimmel Magnif'eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner glides on like butter. This creamy eyeshadow eyeliner duo resists smudging and creasing. The fine point on one side and blunt blender on the other side allow you to create a smokey, blended eye look with a classicly defined shape.


I love how this smooth eyeshadow + eyeliner comes in one convenient product. Get great looking eyes in two easy steps, with bold color selections from classic to natural to statement. The long-lasting formula will stay true all day. It's even waterproof, crease-proof, and transfer proof!

Left to right bottom row: 004 Dark Side of Blue, 001 Back to Blacks


C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Balm is a mint-infused lip balm that gives a glossy shine and long-lasting freshness. It also comes in tints or shines so you can find one that is perfect for you. I love how it includes peppermint oil to give breath a long-lasting freshness. All while delivering high-shine, a hint-of-tint, and a super cooling sensation! Keep one in your purse and one in your pocket. Your lips will thank you!


Wunder2's Last & Found[ation] Concealer is a long-wearing formula that hides dark circles and imperfections. It is comfortable, crease-free, and covers like a dream. This high-coverage concealer is water-resistant, transfer-resistant, and lasts all day.


Choose from four shades left to right: 10 light, 20 medium, 30 tan, 40 deep


The Mallywood Highlighting Blush highlights and adds dimension with a subtle rosy tone. It all comes together in a beautiful swirl of four blush shades and two highlighting shades. The soft pink blush provides a buildable flush of color to the cheeks while the iridescent shimmer provides the perfect touch of everyday highlight to the apples of the cheek.


This highlighting blush will leave you with a healthy flush of color and satiny glow look. The unique wave pressing technology allows for all shades to blend seamlessly together for a perfect, universal blush shade! The combination is so pretty!


ShapeOn is the most comfortable undergarment compression wear I have tried. It is made from an ultra-thin breathable fabric and features a multi-point compression comfort system. The bust-to-thigh shaper I tried looks great under clothes and is comfortable enough to wear all day.


I love how this shapewear is comfortable and stays in place. It doesn't roll and gets rid of all of those lumps, bumps, and panty lines. Try ShapeOn to enhance the areas you want to enhance and hide the areas you want to hide. Perfect timing for those upcoming holiday parties!
