My New Favorite Shop: Mom and Daughter Look

I was given these items to review, but was in no other way compensated. Scroll to the bottom for a special 20% off code to Joules!

You know when you look at a store’s selection and think, “they just get me!”? That is exactly what happened when I was introduced to Joules while I was visiting NYC this summer. I met a couple of the ladies behind the brand and instantly fell in love with the pieces they had brought to share at the event.

Customized Children’s Book

We are serious book fans at our house! Having and educator as a husband, I have always known that books would play a big part in how our children were going to be raised. I am so grateful for his love of books because I just didn’t grow up loving books as much as he did. Seeing his love of reading rub off on our daughter has truly been a joy to watch.

We are constantly on the look out for great children’s books. There are so many children’s books out there! It is sometimes hard to find books that are both enjoyable for the parent and the child to read. We definitely have our favorite authors that we know we can count on, but we are always on the lookout for more great books to add to our collection. [Read more…]

Creating Flawless Skin with Luminess Air Products and VIDEO

You probably already know that I love my Luminess Air makeup system. I just love how smooth my makeup looks when I use an airbrush to apply it! I also love that it lasts all day long, without any touching up. Luminess Air has a large variety of products that can be used with their air makeup system and I have really enjoyed trying out different products they offer to make my makeup look even better.

Delicious scents without the mess!

This post is sponsored by Candle Lite. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

I was a long time user of wax warmers and wax melts. I loved not having to light a fire in my house for a candle, but quickly learned that wax melts weren’t as great as I once had thought. Wax melts get everywhere. I cleaned wax off of counter tops, baseboards, and even carpet. Let me just tell you, cleaning wax off of any surface can be a total nightmare. Because of these incidents, I quit using wax melts entirely. I tried a lot of different things to make my house smell good, but I just couldn’t find anything that fit exactly what I was looking for. I felt that way until I found my new favorite way to make my house smell incredible, without all of the mess!

Better Homes and Gardens Scent Bursts on www.girllovesglam.com

The Better Homes and Gardens Fragranced Paper Scent Bursts are seriously the greatest way to bring scents into my home. They work in a wax warmer, but they aren’t wax at all! They bring fragrance fast, without having to melt messy wax. They are warmer refills made of natural recyclable paper infused with pure fragrance. [Read more…]

Get Two Looks for Your Locks with Conair

I love how many great, innovative tools there are available for hair styling. I vividly remember the first time a stylist used a flat iron on my hair. I was in 8th grade and it completely changed my life because I realized just how smooth my hair could be! Traditional flat irons and curling irons are now being replaced with newer tools. I love trying out some of these tools to see what the result is like on my hair.

Recently, I tried out the new InfinitiPRO by Conair® Diamond Brilliance™ Diamond-Infused Ceramic Smoothing Hot Brush and the InfinitiPRO by Conair® Curl Secret® to see how they worked on my hair.

I let my hair air dry to its natural curly wave so I could really put these tools to the test! [Read more…]

Healthy Skin with Garnier SkinActive®

I have been feeling kind of old lately. Before anyone goes and gets mad at me about feeling old while I am still in my 20’s, let me explain. It wasn’t until just recently that it really hit me that I will be 30 before I know it. It kind of seems like my 20’s have gone by in a big blur so far. There has been a lot that has happened and a lot more that can happen in the next 2 years before I turn 30. My hair hasn’t shown any signs of aging yet, but I can definitely see it in my skin. It just wasn’t looking as youthful as it used to. My skin looked tired!

I wouldn’t necessarily feel tired but if I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I instantly felt a little more exhausted. I wanted to address the problem and treat my skin with something that would help it look brighter, so I could feel confident with my skin again. I did just that, with the help of Garnier SkinActive®.

I took the Clearly Brighter Challenge and started using the Garnier SkinActive® Clearly Brighter™ Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 every day for two weeks. It is clinically proven daily moisturizer that works quickly to even out tone and texture for brighter, smoother skin. It has antioxidants like Vitamin C to help give smoother, brighter skin in just one week.* It is a lightweight moisturizer that is oil-free, so it won’t clog pores either!

I can’t even believe how much better my skin looks after using this product for just two weeks! I still look like the makeup free me, but a much less tired looking version. My skin is so much brighter than it was before! I knew there were going to be some changes, but it wasn’t until actually looking at the before and after picture that I realized just how much of a change there was.

This product is definitely one that will continue to be a part of my daily routine. You can try it out for yourself and take the Clearly Brighter Challenge to see what a difference it can make in your skin too! Garnier SkinActive® products are available at CVS, Target, Walmart, Amazon, and Rite Aid.

 

Now I can completely agree with the brand’s tagline, “The active way to visibly healthier skin” because I have experienced it firsthand. My skin is visibly healthier than it was two weeks ago, thanks to Garnier SkinActive® Clearly Brighter™ Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15

Preschool Favorites with Mabel’s Labels Giveaway!

I know it sounds incredibly cliche, but I just can’t believe I have a kid in school. I know it is just preschool, but it is crazy to me to think that she has that independence twice a week. Her preschool didn’t require many school supplies, just a box of crayons, a package of baby wipes, and a box of markers, but I wanted to make her feel like she was officially a school kid.

Making Heels Comfortable on www.girllovesglam.com

Have you ever purchased a pair of shoes that you just absolutely could not live without? Have you ever purchased those shoes only to find out that they are the most uncomfortable things you have ever put on your feet? That is exactly what happened to me when I purchased my beloved black and white striped heels.  [Read more…]

Cleansing Your Face Just Got Personalized

Tracking Pixel

I experienced using Bioré® Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub as part of a sponsored campaign. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

As you probably all know, I have tried out many different facial cleansers in my lifetime. You may be the same way. It is rare that I find one that is so much different than the other cleansers I have tried in my life but I did when I gave Bioré® Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub a try.

Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub on www.girllovesglam.com

What sets Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub apart from the rest is the fact that I was able to completely control how much or how little exfoliation my face got. The scrub is dry when it is in the package and it is activated by adding a little water to the product in your hand. You can add a very small amount of water for the most exfoliation or more water for a very gentle exfoliation. [Read more…]
