Milani Coupon and Mascara Review

This post is sponsored by

I have used various Milani makeup products over the years. I use Milani blush everyday! I have been wanting to try the new Milani Highly Rated 10-in-1 Volume Mascara and I finally grabbed some the last time I was at Walgreens.

Awesome Wet N Wild Walgreens Coupon

I love a good coupon, but especially when that coupon can be used on beauty products! I have been a fan of Wet N Wild for basically my entire life. I recently tried their Hello Halo Liquid Highlighters and it totally made me fall in love with them all over again. When I went to Walgreens this week, I picked up one of their Mega Last Liquid Catsuit Lipsticks to try out.

Healthy Choices: At Home Circuit Training Workout

When I moved to a new city,  I decided that I was going to really strive to make healthy choices and be fit in my city. I moved from an average town to a very small community that is full of people who live and breathe outdoor sports and want to save the environment. I was a little worried about moving here because I am not your typical outdoorsy girl. I used to be a huge fan of going to the gym and getting a good, old fashioned sweat there. Now that isn’t really an option because the nearest gym is in the next town over. I have had to learn to work on my heath and fitness in other ways! One of those ways has been through my phone! Yes, my phone! I have found some really great apps to help keep me on track!

Walgreens Healthy Choices

My favorite one is the Walgreens app! Crazy, right? It is awesome because you can be rewarded for making healthy choices that you are probably already making day to day. I feel like it kind of motivates me to keep it up too because I love being rewarded for my hard work! It connects with the Walgreens Balance Rewards and gives you Balance Rewards points when you put in how many steps you walked, how far you ride your bike, and if you weigh yourself and track your weight on the app. They are literally things I was doing already and I am being rewarded for them now!

Since there isn’t a gym here, I have learned to really love riding my bike for exercise with my husband, going for jogs, and doing circuit training workouts at home.

At Home Circuit Training Workout on

I usually change up what exercises I do in my circuit training, but I always have them last about 30-45 minutes. I do 30 second-60 second intervals of high intensity and strength training and then have a 30 second rest every 5-10 minutes. [Read more…]

Summertime Fun Survival Kit

We recently became a diaper free household! Potty training is over and it is just in time for summer. It is nice to know that we can go out as a family on all sorts of adventures without having to worry about remembering the diaper bag or having to change diapers in awkward situations. We plan on being on the go a lot this summer now that we are diaper free. What a better way to celebrate, right? Since I know that we will be out and about a lot, I wanted to put together a little kit to keep in our car that is a little bit first aid and a little bit survival of the summer. It is perfect for when you get in situations that you realize that you need something ASAP and you aren’t close to home to get it.

Summer Fun Survival and First Aid Kit #ad


I knew that the perfect place to find great items for a summertime survival kit would be Walgreens. I headed over and found just about everything I needed for my kit on one end cap.

Celebrate Every Goal in Walgreens

Johnson & Johnson and Walgreens have put together this awesome deal so you can celebrate every goal in your family too! If you purchase $15 of select Johnson & Johnson products on these select end caps, you can earn 3,000 points for your Walgreens Balance Rewards. It is totally a win, win situation because they are items you use all of the time!

Here is what I included in my summertime survival kit…

Summer Fun Survival Kit Must Haves #ad

I got Band-Aids, Neutragena Sunscreen, Tylenol, lip balm, and almonds. I also got a pencil case to put all of this in so that it is nice and compact for the car. Each of these items are great to have on hand in your car during the summer because you seriously don’t know when you might feel a headache coming on, or your child gets a scrape, or your lips are killing you because they are so chapped, or you are starving, or you forgot to pack the sunscreen. I could go on and on about why I chose each item for my survival kit. I wanted to be sure to keep it simple so I could fit it all in a pencil case, but if you wanted to make a larger one, you could include tons of other great items too like Aveeno lotion, Zyrtec, and Neosporin.

I took the Tylenol, the lip balm, and the Band-Aids out of their packaging so they would fit in the pencil case more easily. I put each item in the pencil case and actually had room that I could put a few other items in there too!

The pencil case is just the right size that I can slide it under the seat in my car and I can have it handy for all of our summertime fun. What do you have that is worth celebrating this summer?

Sally Hansen Nail Party!

It says it in my blog name, glam. I love glam! I love having a reason to get dolled up and I love getting dolled up with friends! I got to do just that when I hosted a Sally Hansen nail party! Can you think of anything more fun than getting together with a bunch of your favorite girls, watching a chick flick, reading magazines, and painting your nails?! I don’t think there is anything more fun than that!

Planning the party was almost as fun as having the party! I went to Walgreens and picked up some magazines, treats, and TONS of Sally Hansen nail products to try out! I was shocked at how much I saved when I signed up for balance rewards with Walgreens! It costs nothing to sign up, and it saved me a bunch of money! I am a fan of that! I was shocked to see how many different products Sally Hansen had to choose from too. There is really something for everyone, no matter what your style is. I grabbed several different products and styles so that all of the ladies attending could find something they loved. To see my whole shopping experience, check out my album here.
I was sure to give my guests awesome goodie bags full of products that they could try at home too. The goodie bags also doubled at pretty cute party decor on the table.
The nail polish cookies were a huge hit! I wish I could take credit for making them, but I can’t! They were made by my extremely talented friend, Stacy! Adding little details really helped make the party special.
The night before the party, I tried out a few of the Sally Hansen products so that I could help the ladies when it was time for the party. I loved the Insta Gel System! As a cosmetologist, I have done my fair share of shellac nails, and this system works a lot like that! They don’t damage your nails and they are much faster and less expensive than salon shellac nails.
When it was time for the party, I did a little demo for the ladies so that they would know how to use all of their new products without having to read the instructions. They needed time to socialize, watch “Clueless”, read magazines, and paint their nails!
The ladies all loved their goodie bags and got right down to business making their hands and feet look fabulous! It was really fun to see all of the different styles that they chose. It really inspired me to try some of the looks that they tried. I loved all of the bright spring colors and prints. It really reminded me of a lot of the fashion that I have seen recently. Who doesn’t want their nails to be totally on trend too?!
The party was a huge success! It was really fun to check out #iheartmynailart on Instagram too to see my friends posting their nails on there and to see some of the other Sally Hansen parties happening. I can honestly say that I am a recent convert to non salon brand nail polish. I love the way these Sally Hansen products look and I love the prices even more! If you don’t have a Walgreens near you, you can always order Sally Hansen products online too! They are also doing an awesome promotion on the Insta Gel system that I loved! It is only $19.99 for the starter kit until 4/27! It is a really awesome deal! Be sure to follow Sally Hansen and Walgreens on Twitter to stay up to date with all of their promotions.
