Cars 3 Coloring Pages, Activities, and Recipes

When we were preparing to go to Disneyland two years ago, I realized that my daughter had never seen the Cars movie. Knowing that we would be spending time in Cars Land, I wanted to prepare her so that she would know what she was seeing at Cars Land. I had her watch the Cars movie and she fell in love instantly! She immediately wanted to watch Cars 2 and has been watching those two movies on repeat for the past 2 years. We were more than just a little excited when we learned about Cars 3!

A few weeks ago, I surprised my daughter by taking her to the Cars 3 Road to the Races Tour. I surprised her by giving her one of the brand new Cars 3 LEGO Junior sets. I gave it to her and told her that she needed them to play with on our road trip to this fun event. I am SO sad because I took the cutest pictures of her when I gave her the LEGO goodies and told her, but the pictures were lost somehow. Just imagine pretty much the most animated 5 year old hearing just about the best news she has ever heard, then times that by about 10! She was SO excited!  [Read more…]

Adding Color to a Space (without going overboard)

Color scares a lot of people. I am not afraid to admit that I was totally afraid of color for a long time. I grew up loving color and I think that my brightly colored bedrooms may have scared me for life as an adult because too much color would scare me like crazy! Thankfully neutral rooms are in style because I rocked that (and however else my mom would help me decorate) for a long time. Over the years, I came into my own style and realized that color isn’t as scary as I had originally thought. You don’t have to commit to painting an entire wall a bright color in order to introduce a good amount of color into a room.

Color Hunt Preschool with Free Printable on www.girllovesglam.com

I love finding fun activities that can be turned into something that is educational too. My three year old is at a pretty crucial age for learning. Thankfully I have an awesome teacher husband who can give me suggestions of different preschool activities I can do with our daughter each day that will be best for her particular stage. He mentioned that having activities where preschool aged children can match up different things and solve simple puzzles is great. He suggested doing some sort of preschool scavenger hunt with her where we could implement colors too. That is where the color hunt preschool game printable was born! [Read more…]

Easy Tips to Bring Color into a Room Without Using Paint

Ever since we moved last year, I have been given totally new decorating challenges. Not only are the spaces in my home much different than they were in my old house, but we are renting this time around and that brings totally new challenges! When we walked through our rental options, I was immediately drawn to the townhouse we chose because it had white walls. A clean slate! With that comes different challenges though. I love color! I like to create happy, colorful rooms and painting walls is no longer an option!

WIW: Black and White Striped Dress

When I went to NYC with Kleenex, I felt a sense of pressure on what I was going to wear when I was at their event at Grand Central Station with Isaac Mizrahi. I mean, what do you wear to meet a designer when you don’t have the budget to go out and grab one of his designs right then and there?

For reals, this will go down as one of my favorite outfits… ever.

I love a classic black and white look. And I love color. Why not marry the two? Thankfully, I already owned 90% of this outfit. The only thing I purchased for my trip, was my dress. It was perfect for the event and I felt professional and confident while I was there representing Kleenex as a brand ambassador. Unfortunately, because I did already own most of this and because this dress from Kohl’s is so dang cute, everything I am wearing is unavailable. I did, however find some very similar items (some are exactly the same too)!’

At Home Hair Coloring Tips and Tricks

I am so excited to tell you guys about a really neat opportunity I was given. I was able to throw a girl’s night out for some of my besties while we watched Project Runway, played a Fall trends bingo game, and tried out some of the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series products! I also got to try out the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series hair color on myself. As a licensed cosmetologist, I thought it would be fun if I did a video giving you my tips and tricks for hair coloring at home.

Now, for the the tips you should all learn before dying your hair at home!

The Vidal Sassoon Pro Series party was a blast! I went to Target to pick up all of the products we would need and treats to eat while we watched Project Runway.

Fall Hairspiration Party

 Once the show was done, we spent some time trying out the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series products. I was SO impressed! I am typically a professional hair product only type of girl, so to see these products work as well as I did was a huge shocker for me! I love the smell of the Combing Cream. I have used it everyday since the party and love to get a little sniff of my hair throughout the day. I was really impressed with hairsprays too. They had just the right amount of hold, without making the hair feel stiff. I now understand why they call Vidal Sassoon Pro Series products… Salon Genius. Affordable for All! At the party, I taught the party guests how to do flat iron curls on short and long hair. They wanted to know how to make them more wavy and how to make them tighter.

Now for a better look at the hair color change I made! I got rid of the ombre that I had and went back to a brown that is pretty close to my natural color. I LOVE it! I was really surprised at how much the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series color mixing process was like professional hair color. It was really easy to apply and I am really happy with how the color turned out!
