Back to School Beauty: Items to Keep in your Bag

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees. All opinions are 100% mine.

Back to school brings lots of new chaos and challenges into our lives. What it doesn’t need to bring is an excuse to ignore our beauty routine! Walmart has a ton of great Burt’s Bees products you need to get ready for back to college and school. Whether you are a busy mom who is taking her kids to and from school, or you are a high school or college student staying up late and waking up early for class, your beauty routine shouldn’t be ignored just because of the chaos.

Five Minute Face Using Drugstore Makeup

There is a lot of underrated drugstore makeup out there. I have been testing out different drugstore makeup items that are similar to high end makeup items that I already love.

To make the deal even sweeter, all of the items that I used on my five minute makeup look are included in the Kroger spend $15, save $5 (mix & match) sale they have right now.

Disney Character Inspired Picture Frame

We just got back from a trip to Disneyland and it was just the best! I am pretty sure I was the most annoying Instagrammer on my personal account because I posted all of my photos so they could be added to my photo books. But I also wanted to be able to see a photo to remind us of our trip all of the time. I had looked at picture frames at the Disney store, but they were just too pricey! Thankfully with a little vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo, I could whip up something I like even better than anything I saw at the Disneyland shops!

I love the song, “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah” because I grew up watching a Disneyland sing-a-long that had that song in it. To me, no song screams Disneyland more than that one! I knew that the lyrics, “My, oh my what a wonderful day” would sum up our trip perfectly! To make this frame, I used… [Read more…]

What’s In Our Summer Go Bag?

Every year, I like to pack what I have nicknamed our “summer go” bag. It’s the bag that I know I can grab when we are going out the door all summer. It is full of the things that we will probably need, no matter what the activity is. We can throw in extra items when we know that we will need specific things for an activity, but I like having the base all taken care of so that we don’t have to spend so much time packing a bag when we are trying to just get out the door.

Creating a Summer Go Bag

I always keep treats that are delicious, but can also help fill us up. I like getting jerky, almonds, and chocolate covered pretzels for a little sweetness. I always pack [Read more…]

Baby Skincare Needs

Tracking Pixel
The summer heatwave has officially hit us! It was like in the blink of an eye it went from rainy days to scorching temperatures! Hot temperatures can be really tricky with babies, especially when you have summer travel plans. We are getting ready to head to California later this month and I am thinking ahead for full days at theme parks, beach days, and hot weather. I can honestly say that creating sponsored content with a company hasn’t ever made as much as an impact as working with Baby Dove has. It has drastically changed my toddler’s skin and I am just so grateful!

Dove Baby Review

While it is important to plan our outfits, snacks, and entertainment for the trip, it’s just as important to think about our skin in a different environment. My toddler’s skin has always been really sensitive and we’ve battled issues with it for most of her life. It wasn’t until we started using products from Baby Dove and changed the type of diapers she was using that we have seen major improvements in her skin. [Read more…]

Using Facial SPF

I turn 30 in a couple of weeks. I had the sad realization that I needed to start focusing more on my skin a few years ago. My skin wasn’t the youthful skin that it once was and I needed to focus on it more. I started by using facial SPF, something I hadn’t ever done! It was a hard adjustment to make because it made my skin feel greasy and my makeup didn’t stay on very well. I have used a few brands over the years, but I honestly couldn’t ever find one that I loved. That’s why I was so excited to learn that Olay Whips, a moisturizer I have already fallen in love with, made SPF 25 moisturizer!

Summer Boredom Idea Box

We were given the Nintendo and Lego items for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It is officially the second day of summer break here and I didn’t want to hear the dreaded words, “I’m bored” all summer! I prepared ahead of time and created what we are calling, the Summer Boredom Box this year. It is a summer boredom idea box that is used as a reward system for when chores get done.

Summer Boredom Box Idea on www.girllovesglam.com

I wanted it to be used as a reward system, so that we were sure to get chores done before anything else. I also wanted it to be kept in a box that only one thing is taken out each day, so that everything is looked at as a novelty. Some days, we will be going out and doing fun activities after chores are done, so the box won’t be necessary on those days. But I will tell you, being on day 2 of summer break, I am already grateful that we have this box of goodies! [Read more…]
