What Eyeshadow Colors to Wear With Eye Colors

I get a lot of questions about what eyeshadow colors look best on people. There are a lot of different factors that can go into it, if we really want to get technical. Instead of diving so far into it that it scares you away from trying new colors, I want to encourage you to try other colors based on your eye color. Here are what eyeshadow colors you should wear based on your eye color. I will explain a little further in detail below the infographic. If you need this graphic for reference, pin it on your Pinterest board or print out and put it in your makeup bag!

Before I dive into each color, I want you to remember to think about your skin tone when you are choosing eyeshadow colors as well. If you have green eyes but you have cool toned skin, you should probably stay away from the warm orange and warm brown. Just use our best judgement and if you can’t tell what tones you should use, try experimenting and see for yourself what colors are working or not working with your skin tone. Both Sephora and Ulta have great return policies if you purchase something that you don’t love!  [Read more…]

Olay 28 Day Skin Study Results

This post is sponsored by Olay and Walmart. All thoughts and opinions are  my own. #28DaysofOlay

After having a baby, my skin has really struggled. There are so many hormones that have made my skin randomly breakout and the lack of sleep has left my skin looking pretty lifeless! I was in need of a major skin makeover.

I took action to make my skin better by using the Olay Skin Advisor Tool. It is a pretty amazing tool! You just visit https://skinadvisor.olay.com/ on your mobile device and follow the instructions it gives you. You take a photo of yourself when you aren’t wearing any makeup and the Skin Advisor will analyze your skin and give your a skin age estimate. Once you get your skin age, it gives specific product recommendations for your skincare needs. All of the products it recommends are available for purchase at Walmart, so it isn’t going to be sending you on a crazy hunt for all of the products.

The Skin Advisor actually told me that my skin age was 26. I was pleasantly surprised that it was two years younger than my actual age. But then it did point out that I had a lot of dark circles under my eyes and that my skin could use some brightening. I couldn’t agree more! There were two Olay products recommendations that I really wanted to try using for my eyes and face during my 28 day skin study. I used the Olay Total Effects 7 Revitalizing Foaming Cleanser to rejuvenate my skin and I used the Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream to help with the “tired mom” look I had going on before.

It is actually pretty crazy to see just how much my skin changed in 28 days. The biggest difference that I have noticed is how much brighter my skin is. My skin literally seems to radiate from within. I can see the biggest change under my eyes. I don’t think I realized how bad the bags under my eyes had gotten until I see what it is like without them!

Whole30 Meal Planning Tips

Whole30 is intense. There is really no other way of describing it other than the fact that it is really intense! The cravings were really hard for me to get through and there is no way that I could have completed a successful Whole30 without the meal planning that we did. I know it is beyond cliche to say, but the phrase “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” is so true! If you have no snacks in the house besides the stuff you ate before Whole30, when a craving comes there won’t be anything else to grab except those chips in the back of the pantry! Here are a few tips that totally saved our behinds when it came to Whole30 meal planning.

Whole30 While Breastfeeding FAQs

I did it! I finished Whole30 and can say that I survived during one of the hardest times for me to stay on track, breastfeeding! I don’t think there is a time in my life that I have craved more carbs and sugar than right after having my baby. My body thought it needed all of that in order to produce milk, but thankfully I was able to survive Whole30 without all of that junk. My milk production was definitely my number one topic of questions when I would say anything about doing Whole30, so I decided to dedicate an entire post to those frequently asked questions and hopefully they will help you decide if Whole30 is right for you while you are breastfeeding!

I don’t be an expert of Whole30, breastfeeding, or babies. These are just answers to questions that are based off of my experience alone. Make sure you consult with your doctor about any type of diet you are going to do before starting it and remember that my tips are 100% based on my own experience and may not be right for you.

When I had my first daughter, I was so sleep deprived that there are a lot of memories that seem completely dark and foggy in my brain. Those first few weeks were so hard! Thankfully my husband and I did a lot of research about baby routines and we learned enough that we were finally able to have a good sleeper who was on more of a schedule and it was beautiful!

The Cutest Birth Announcements, EVER!

Basic Invite Modern Birth Announcements on www.girllovesglam.com

One thing that I really wanted to do for Zoey and didn’t do with Harper was send out birth announcements. Harper’s NICU stay (and the fact that we were first time parents without a clue) really threw off any plans of doing birth announcements because it just totally slipped our minds once we finally got our baby home.
