Frozen Elsa and Anna DIY Vinyl Cups

Frozen Elsa and Anna DIY Vinyl Cups are so easy to make!

DIY Frozen Cups on www.girllovesglam.com

You may remember my post about my Disney Princess cups I made. I have really loved those cups, but I kept getting requests for Frozen characters. Can I let you in on a little secret? That Disney princess cup project was something I did in early 2013, before any of us knew Anna and Elsa! After I started getting requests for Frozen cups, I knew I needed to make an Anna and Elsa to join the rest of the Disney Princess cup gang.

These are both pretty darn easy to make. I didn’t use any vinyl cutters for these because I wanted them to be something that ANYONE could make!

Here is what I used to make these… [Read more…]

How we are paying for our Disneyland vacation!

This post contains affiliate links.

Guys! I am SO excited! We officially are going to Disneyland this Fall! I know that a lot of people go on Disney vacations, but this is a really big deal for my little family. It will be the first time that Dave and Harper will have been. I haven’t been to Disneyland since they had California Adventure, so it has been a while for me too. At the age that my daughter is at right now, she is obsessed with all things Disney and I just couldn’t wait any longer to go. We have been wanting to go for a while, but just couldn’t find the way to save up to go. Even since we moved and Dave has a higher paying job, saving up to go seemed like quite the task. Any time we have extra money saved up, it is just SO dang tempting to spend that money! We are no good at saving up for things. But, we have finally found a way to save up for Disneyland that will actually work for us! Here is how we are paying for our Disneyland vacation!

LulaRoe: Cutest Clothes with Work from Home Opportunity!

I have been a fan of LulaRoe for a long time. I didn’t get the opportunity to buy anything from LulaRoe until I spoke at an expo last year. One of the vendors there was an independent LulaRoe business owner and I was SO excited to finally get to shop! I got the cutest black and white dress. I have worn it to several events and as an everyday dress. I have been able to style it several ways too. It is my favorite dress by far. I remember leaving that expo and calling my mom. I told her all about how cute the clothes were and that we had to find someone who could become an independent LulaRoe business owner! Both my mom and I were in careers that we enjoyed and it wasn’t something that would be right for us, but I wanted to find someone who would do it, so I could support them and buy these amazing clothes from them. Sadly, I forgot to really look into it after that day.

I was approached by Sadi, an independent LulaRoe business owner about reviewing an outfit on my blog and I was thrilled!

Summer Swim Essentials

I know that most of you probably don’t know me personally, but I will let you in on a little secret that most people who do know me personally know… I LOVE water parks! I have never lived close to a water park, so going to a water park was always a special event for me. I love to swim, I love to float around in the lazy rivers, and to go down water slides. To me, water parks represent everything that summer should be! In our area, we have a pretty sweet YMCA that has a nice indoor swimming facility with a small lazy river and one water slide. It seems silly, but I am so excited to have that nearby!

I love finding new swimwear each year. I grew up absolutely hating swimming suit shopping. It is sad that I felt that way from such a young age. All of my insecurities would come when I would try on bathing suits. The older I have gotten, the more I have realized that being insecure in a swimming suit should be the least of my worries. I remember going to a water park when I was in high school and seeing a mom there who was pretty overweight, but it didn’t keep her from flaunting her body in a bathing suit and playing with her kids. I don’t think that anyone there would have judged her for the way she was shaped in that moment. I was so impressed with her confidence and her willingness to get in and play! I wanted to be just like that when I became a mom.

I have learned a lot about my body over the years. I have learned what types of suits fit me well and make me feel confident while I am in them. I have always loved Lime Ricki swimwear! I own three of their suits and I added another one to my bathing suit collection this year!

How to Style Straight Across Bangs: YouTube Monday

It is Monday again! That means it is time for another video!

I get asked ALL of the time how to style straight across bangs. I get asked at the salon when I am cutting bangs, my friends with bangs ask me, and people thinking about cutting bangs ask me. For a long time, I thought it would be a silly video to do because it is so simple. After asking a few people their thoughts on the matter, I realized that it may be best to just go ahead and film it!

Makeup Makeover: Crystal from A Pumpkin and a Princess

Makeup makeover for Crystal, of the blog A Pumpkin and a Princess.

I remember being pretty intimidated to meet Crystal from the blog, A Pumpkin and a Princess a few years ago. When I say meet, I mean online. I was starting a little group where we would chat about blogging topics and someone had suggested having her join in. If you have seen her blog you would know exactly why I was intimidated. This girl has serious talent! As soon as she opened her mouth, I knew I didn’t need to be intimidated at all! This girl is literally one of the nicest humans I have ever met!

A few months later, I met her in real life and she was even better when there wasn’t a computer screen between us. Since then, we have been to many more conferences together and I enjoy every second hanging out with her. This girl LOVES beauty products… maybe even more than I do if that is even possible. She was nervous about doing her makeup last year and she asked me to do her eye shadow one day. I taught her a few tricks and she really liked what we came up with. This year, I convinced her to let me play with her face some more for her very own Girl Loves Glam makeover!

Girl Loves Glam Makeover: Crystal of A Pumpkin and a Princess

Now, this obviously isn’t an everyday look. It is pretty glammed up, but I wanted to make Crystal look like the foxy momma she is! Blog conferences are fun because it gives moms a chance to get dolled up, without worrying about real life and I wanted to let Crystal embrace that (in a total glamorous way) for the day!

Let’s take a look at her before… [Read more…]

Minnie Mouse Ears Toddler Hairstyle

I have a major Minnie Mouse fan at my house. One day as I was trying to think of something to do with her hair, she wasn’t really cooperating. I was kind of desperate to come up with an idea for her hair that she would sit still for. When I couldn’t think of anything, I asked her what kind of hair she wanted that day. I was not at all prepared for what she was about to throw at me… Minnie Mouse hair! Say what?! Minnie Mouse doesn’t even have hair! That is when I came up with the idea to do Minnie Mouse EARS as the toddler hairstyle instead of her hair that doesn’t actually exist.

Minnie Mouse Ears Hairstyle on www.girllovesglam.com

There are a few really great things about this hairstyle. One of the great things is that it is really easy to do, but what is probably the greatest thing is what happens if you do it when the hair is wet! If you do this hairstyle when the hair is wet, it turns out really smooth (Unlike the photos I have of the hairstyle. We were kind of a hot mess all together that day.), the hairstyle will usually stay looking good for at least another day after you have done it, AND when the buns start looking a little bent out of shape you can take them out and they leave the most adorable ringlets behind that make for a super cute ponytail on the last day. If your girls are anything like mine, they HATE getting their hair washed. This hairstyle is a saving grace that it lets me get away with not washing her hair for about 2 days, so we can enjoy bath time without the dreaded hair washing fight. [Read more…]

Girl Loves Glam Makeover with Natalie on www.girllovesglam.com

I absolutely love this girl! Natalie was one of my very first blogger friends that I ever made. She is hilarious, beautiful, and crazy talented! She is half of the talent of the blog, My Sister’s Suitcase. Natalie has a lot going on in her life. She is a mom of three, she blogs, she is a wife, and she just moved! She deserved this makeover! She wanted to have a look that felt natural, but made her feel like a million bucks.

Being a Mother

felt the magic of swiss herbs in Ricola® Herb & Throat drops as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #swissherbs

Being a mother has completely changed how I think and feel about everything. I feel like saying that is even an understatement! I know it is probably the cheesiest thing to say, but I literally had no idea how much love my body was capable of until I became a mom. I never knew that someone who can make me so frustrated sometimes could also make me feel so much love in my heart too.

Ricola Mother's Day #SwissHerbs

I had a really great example of motherhood growing up in my own mom. She was always willing to sacrifice her own time to support me and my siblings. She always spent time with us and I have a lot of happy memories of my childhood because of that. I hope that by my choice of staying home and working from home, it will give me the time to be with my own child, and future children, to really make that same impact on their lives.  [Read more…]
