Completing my Bucket List

Stress Relief With Colouring Books

With a very stressful full time job, my blog, learning, completing items on my bucket list, and spending time with my husband, I really appreciate when I can get some alone time to relax.

Colouring books are one of the most popular methods of stress relief nowadays, and one I find works very well for me.


Colouring books aren’t just for children anymore and now come in pretty much any theme you can think of; cats, zombies, Harry Potter (my favourite just now), animal portraits, anything!

In the past I’ve tried using pencils but found they didn’t look that great in the books.  I’ve just tried the Staedtler Triplus Colour Set of 26, from Cowling and Wilcox and the quality is amazing!


Staedtler Triplus Colour fineliners are high quality fineliner pens with vibrant metal-clad tips. Each pen has an ergonomic triangular barrel for relaxed and easy writing. The water-based ink washes out of most textiles and the pens are airplane-safe as the automatic pressure equalisation prevents the pens from leaking onboard aircraft.

I was glad to learn these are airplane-safe as this is another place I get some peace and quiet to do some colouring.


The ink is also dry safe, which means that the pens can be left uncapped for days without drying up. This pack contains 26 vibrant colours with a line width of  approximately 1.0 mm. The pens come supplied in a beautiful box designed by artist and illustrator Johanna Basford.

Art and colouring can be therapeutic, and with the rising popularity of the books, “colouring clubs” and events are popping up all over the world.  Grab a cuppa tea, bring your book, and have some relaxing time with the company of others.

The pens you use can make a huge difference to your colouring, so it’s worth investing in a quality pack.  Cowling and Wilcox offer a large collection of pens to choose from.  As well as these you will find many arts and craft supplies for all your arty needs.

So head over to Cowling and Wilcox for items for yourself, or as a Christmas gift for a loved one.


Is colouring something you enjoy doing?
