Back to School Clothes: Choosing Quality Pieces

This post is brought to you by Abercrombie Kids. While this was a sponsored opportunity, all content and opinions expressed here are my own.

If I have learned one important lesson about children’s clothes, it’s that choosing quality pieces is so important! Kids can be really hard on their clothes and if the clothes aren’t made to last, they aren’t going to last. If I am going to be spending my hard earned money on back to school clothes, I want them to make it through the school year. This has become even more important to me since having a second daughter. I know that any clothes that last through the first one can be passed down to the second one. As my younger daughter has grown into more clothes of her sister’s, you can definitely tell what items were made to stand the test of time and which ones were a total waste of money. That is why we did our back to school shopping at Abercrombie Kids this year. The jeans at Abercrombie Kids are super high quality and I know they’ll make it through the years.

Spicy Marinated Vegetables Recipe

Several years ago, I went to a neighborhood barbecue. I saw the most delicious looking vegetables that smelled even better than they looked. I scooped up a plateful and what happened next, is nothing short of a love story. The taste of these vegetables was just as I felt heaven would taste like. I had to know who made this. Finally, I found the woman I had been looking for. When I asked her if I could have the recipe, she paused. She then explained that the recipe for spicy marinated vegetables had been given to her by a friend who had kept the recipe a secret for years! [Read more…]

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

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!

Disney Vacation Picture Frame on www.girllovesglam.com

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…]
