Kanye West Graduation Makeup: Album Cover Makeup

I am the first person who will say they are NOT a Kanye West fan but the Kanye West Graduation album is one that couldn’t get ignored. Not only is this album pretty great all around, it has an album cover that is perfect for creating an album cover makeup look!

Graduation was Kanye’s 3rd album that fit his education theme. It debuted at number one, selling almost 1 million copies in the first week. It features songs like Stronger, Homecoming, and Good Life. You don’t have to be a big fan (or even like him at all) to be able to appreciate this album. I love the colors of this album cover. It made it so fun to create a whole look themed around it!

The Best Songs for Date Night

Music has always been such a special part of our marriage. Back in the day, I used to share snippets of our love story. If you were around for that, you already know that. Dave was a rapper when we met and continued to rap for the first part of our marriage, and I was his merch girl. It was a blast! Although we aren’t the ones in the spotlight anymore, we love sharing music with each other and going to concerts together. That is also why I think it is also fun to have this Best Songs for Date Night playlist.

Workout Music Playlist: Exercise Songs You Will Actually Enjoy

By now, you know that I am a music junkie. Music inspires just about everything that I do. This is especially the case when it comes to working out.

When I try to exercise without music, it is really hard to get out of my head. When I am listening to music, I am able to shut off the feelings of doubt or the thoughts of everything else I need to be doing on my list. But here is where I have an issue with workout music. A lot of workout playlists out there totally suck! I don’t know about you but I don’t want to workout to some weird remixed version of a song or random techno music that I wouldn’t choose to listen to on any other occasion. That’s when I started creating my own workout playlists.

Workout Playlist that Doesn't Suck

After so many of you loved my summer playlist, I started having people ask about music that I listened to while exercising. I knew I needed to make a workout playlist just for you guys! [Read more…]

Summer Music Playlist For the Family

It’s no secret that I love music, but did you know that my whole family does too? We love creating music playlists that our entire family can enjoy, as well as playlists that are created for each of us individually.

I started getting a lot of questions about what type of music I let my kids listen to, that I also liked. It made me realize that people just don’t have the time to research music that adults like, but isn’t full of filthy messages. That is when our summertime playlist, Girl Loves Glam Summer Jams was born. Everyone deserves to have access to a good, family friendly music playlist that your whole family will actually enjoy! We literally went through each of our playlists and chose the songs that we felt were most appropriate for summer!

Good Charlotte Makeup: Album Cover Makeup

I’m only a month behind, but the May album cover makeup look is finally here! I am excited to introduce you to my Good Charlotte makeup look!

Good Charlotte Makeup

When I was choosing what albums I wanted to create makeup looks for, I absolutely knew I needed to do the first Good Charlotte album. It was the first album that I heard in the pop/punk category. It really introduced me into the world of alternative music, my favorite genre of music! [Read more…]

Imagine Dragons Smoke and Mirrors Makeup: Album Cover Makeup

Imagine Dragons Smoke and Mirrors is a really strong album. It was the time when I really realized just how deep Imagine Dragons could get. Their songs on this album are riddled with greater meaning, while the sound isn’t compromised at all. If you haven’t ever listened to the entire album, do yourself a favor give it a listen.

When I was deciding what music albums I would be tackling this year with my album cover makeup looks, I knew Smoke and Mirrors needed to be in the mix. Not only is it one of my favorite albums, but the album cover itself is pretty amazing. The cover art was created by an artist named Tim Cantor, who’s style is a little dark and pretty complex, while also keeping it relatively simple. I was really inspired by the colors and textures in the album art and knew I needed to represent it in the best way I could through my album cover makeup.

It’s that time again! Time for another Album Cover Makeup look! If you missed the first month with Twenty One Pilots Trench, head on over to see it! I am beyond excited to announce the next album cover makeup look is none other than NSYNC No Strings Attached!

NSYNC No Strings Attached Inspired Puppet Makeup

No Strings Attached was one of the very first albums that I ever bought. It helped shape my love of music at the ripe age of 11. I was a die hard NSYNC fan, but wasn’t ever able to see them perform live. So instead of living my middle school dreams of seeing NSYNC perform live, I lived my second best dream of becoming a puppet just like the boys of NSYNC. [Read more…]

How to Make a Doormat with Music Lyrics

I really love having a cute doormat, but I have always wanted to have a more personalized doormat for my style. I absolutely love music! That’s why I am doing my album cover makeup looks every month this year. I LOVE music! I have also always loved the doormats that say hello on one side and goodbye on the other side. But why make the same doormat that I have seen over and over again, when I could teach you all how to make a doormat with music lyrics that will totally set you apart from the rest?! And let’s be honest, anytime I can bring NSYNC into my home decor, I’m going to jump on the opportunity.

Music has always played a big part in how I am inspired. I can’t sing and I can’t play instruments, so I have to share that inspiration in a way that doesn’t involve music. That’s why I am so excited about my new Album Cover Makeup series! Every month, I will have a new music album that has inspired me in some way or has somehow shaped who I am. I can’t even put to words how excited I am for this series! It is my passion project for the year. I know that it isn’t something that most of you are as passionate about as I am, but I hope that you can get excited to see what albums are featured and what crazy things I come up with every month!
