Review - Linkyo Liquid Chalk Markers #B00XKFAJ6W

** I have received this product for free in exchange of my honest review/feedback.

I have already tried another brand of coloured liquid chalk markers. I have also tried a white liquid chalk marker and most of them are similar in ink consistency, how they look when applied on smooth and non-porous surfaces. I like all of them.

Linkyo is also similar. I also like this brand because it is bright, colourful and comes in 8 colours in a box.

The markers dry fast.

They are easy to use and the nibs are also interchangeable to chiselled or rounded tip.

(I used Linkyo markers on our bedroom door. The colours are vivid!)

What I don't like:

I wish they come in many more colours!

Where to buy:


My recommendation:

I give this product my thumbs up. I like the vivid colours and how easy they are to use.

Review - Blami Chalk Markers #ChalkMarkers

**I have received this product with a huge discount in exchange of my honest review/feedback.

I am in the process of learning the ins and outs of Typography including hand lettering, chalkboard art, doodling, and watercolour painting. I like the liquid chalk as a medium because I can also erase it when I need some corrections. Blami Chalk is a good product to try.

What I like:

It glides smoothly on non-porous surfaces such as glass, plastic, smooth wooden surface and even glossy papers.

It doesn't take long for the ink to come out.

The nibs are reversible. You can use either the chisel type or the rounded end.

The colours are bright, neon and easily seen. It is best to use against a darker surface for the neon colours to pop.

It is water-based so it can be erased using damp cloth.

It comes in 12 right neon colours with additional 2: Gold and Silver.

The caps are not too tight so it is not a struggle to remove the cap when using the markers.

It dries quite fast.

You can use it over dried Blami chalk markers to create blended tones.

What I don't like:

When you press too hard, the liquid ink comes out easily. So be careful when using this marker and when using too much pressure when writing.

Where to buy:

This product is available in Amazon.

My recommendation:

I love these markers in spite of the mild nuisance with the liquid ink oozing when I use too much pressure when writing.  These markers are perfect for both adults and kids. You can use these markers for crafts, home business, to-do list, bulletin boards, cafe/bars/restaurant menu boards, and murals. Your imagination and creativity will surely be as colourful and bold as these Blami Chalk markers. I highly recommend it!

Please watch the demo below of how I tried the Blami Markers.

Thanks for watching!

Buy Certified Pre-Owned Devices From Gazelle

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links. 

I was going through Gazelle's website and came across interesting information that I thought you'd find interesting.

Remember the Motorola RAZR? That was actually the first trade-in that Gazelle accepted. Shortly thereafter, Apple released the iPhone 3G, which created the first generation of obsolete phones (iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, anyone?). Since then, Gazelle has paid out more than $200 million to customers for their devices!

Although there are a number of options for purchasing pre-owned smartphones and tablets online, I know first-hand that there are key things that Gazelle offers that helps ensure you won't waste your time or money buying a gently-used device. For instance:
  • Gazelle performs a 30+-point inspection on all their devices (iPhones, Galaxy phones, and iPads), which guarantees that every feature of the device is tested and is of the highest quality before it's sold to you. This is also backed by a 30-day return policy.
  • Because Gazelle Certified devices mean no contracts or strings attached, you can upgrade your device at up to 40% less than buying a new one and avoid being tied to an expensive two-year contract that you might not need. You can keep your carrier, or go with a new one. The choice is yours.
  • You can also easily trade-in your used iPhone, iPad, iPod, MacBook, AppleTV, and other smartphones and smart devices to Gazelle for cash in three easy steps.

    Step 1: Select your gadget from a list of options on Gazelle's "Trade-In" page, answer a few questions, and then Gazelle provides you with an offer for your device.

    Step 2: For items worth $1 or more, it's free to ship your device to Gazelle. Once your trade-in is received, the device is inspected to make sure its condition matches your evaluation.

    Step 3: Payment. If the device matches your description, Gazelle will pay you in the form of a check, an Amazon.com gift card, or via PayPal. Payment takes about a week once Gazelle receives your device.

If you want to sell your old phone or device and get a fair, cash price for it, Gazelle is the safest, easiest, most reliable way to go. And if you want to upgrade your device without having to pay retail rates or deal with a poor-quality purchase, make your life easy and shop Gazelle Certified.  This is the place where you can buy Certified pre-owned devices from Gazelle.

Organizing Events For Your Corporate Parties

Corporations usually hold annual events to announce special reports, news or launch new products. Some companies even hold parties and other team-building events to boost their employees morale and provide recognition and appreciation awards during the ceremonies. While other companies have parties to celebrate milestones in the growth of their business.

What ever it is the party for, organizing one for a big corporation can be daunting. That is the reason why many corporations seek the service of party events organizer to do the work for them for a seamless planning and execution of ideas that will lead to the success of the main event.

If you are tasked to a committee to handle the preparations and coordination involved in the organizing of the event, you will have to consider these:

If the company is a huge corporation, expect to have a budget allocated to events depending on the occasion. It may be from a measly amount to a big one especially for big branded corporations. These companies will offer budget that will satisfy their company's image, management and guests.

Theme preferred
Some companies will have a theme in mind so be in tuned with that. Take note of details and resources to be able to provide your event organizer so the intended outcome is achieved. Some corporations will prefer their parties with costumes and accessories. Ensure that your event organizer know plenty of suppliers to provide you with the requirements.

Number of Guests
This is one of the main factors to consider when holding big parties or events for companies. Depending on what the occasion is, the number of guests needs to be determined ahead of time to ensure that the budget allocated for said events are met.

Party organizers and those coordinating for the event will need the head count and most can be achieved thru RSVP cards or a quick phone call to secure attendance details.

Is this going to be a sit-down event or does your company prefer a buffet? What time
Some parties will have preference on the food to be served due to theme they prefer. Discuss all the details required to provide for the occasion such timings of service, will there be a bartender to be provided? Lay down your requirements before signing the agreement or contract.

This is vital in holding events for big corporations. The location will be according to the umber of guests, accessibility, and the budget involved. Check with the party event organizer to ensure that costs have been discussed and what the fees include. Also ensure the duration of the rental property is booked accordingly within the set timings.

If your company has preference on the location after considering many factors, you can discuss the matters mentioned above to get more details before agreeing on the venue. If you have not tasked the party event organizer to get involved in the search of venues to hold your function, you can do that task by researching, and calling venues to know more. An easy search entry in the web such as corporate venues Western Sydney or function rooms in Melbourne or even party locations in Manhattan will give you good hits to start off your location search.

Another important factor to consider is ensuring the safety and security of each and every individual attending the event. Discuss this with your party organizer that security is well in place to avoid crashers in the event.

Designate a Committee
Once everything has been set, contracts has been signed, preliminary payments have been done, then designate a committee to handle the guest list, and the arriving guests during the event.
