I can’t believe that my last bath bomb recipe of my monthly bath bombs is here! I hope you have enjoyed using the recipes all year long. December’s bath bomb recipe is a hot wassail bath bomb!

FrostGuard is Saving My Sanity this Winter!

Tracking Pixel
When we first found out that we would only have a one car garage with our recent move, we were a little disappointed. Because I typically don’t have to leave as early each morning, I sacrificed the garage spot for my husband. I was still a little bummed out about the thoughts of having to scrape my windows each morning, but I was willing to make that sacrifice. Then I learned about FrostGuard® and was so excited to be given the chance to create a sponsored post for them!

This amazing invention is going to save me from having to scrape my windows this winter and I am so excited to be prepared for the snow! I was a bit skeptical about how tedious it would be to put on each time, but I was shocked over just how easy the Fit-Fast® attachment system is! [Read more…]

Glam Fall Makeup Look

I love making my makeup a little more moody as the seasons change. After a summer full of light and airy makeup, I am ready to bring on the rich colors of Fall. This glam Fall makeup look can easily be worn as an everyday look if it is paired with a little less dramatic lip color and looks fantastic for a night out with an even more dramatic lip color! I love how regal it feels, without being over the top and difficult to recreate.

When I do my makeup like this and really try to focus on my eye makeup, it is important that I wear contacts. I have experienced doing my makeup in the past, only to have to wear my glasses and it just kind of takes away the effect! I find my ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses just as important in my beauty routine as my actual beauty products. I have absolutely loved these ACUVUE®  VITA® Brand Contact lenses that were so highly recommended to me during my Target Optical® visit.

To create this eye makeup look, I used one eyeshadow palette with many neutral options. I love having a palette like this because I can find every color I need in one place. I also used a liquid eyeliner pen and volumizing mascara. [Read more…]

Easy Chunky Braided Scarf Tutorial

It’s time for another installment of Throwback Thursday, people! Now that Fall is in full force and winter is peeking just around the corner, it is time for ALL of the layers! This chunky braided scarf is still one of my most favorite accessories I have ever made. Since I am NOT one to knit or crochet, braiding seemed like the best option for this stellar scarf.

Finding Stylish and Practical Style

This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for supporting them and helping keep Girl Loves Glam a reality.

I can honestly say that I have never taken to the internet to see how to wear a specific style of clothing. I have always just kind of trusted my gut and dressed in a way that makes me feel confident, but also fits my lifestyle. I can’t help but notice the amount of pictures I see on social media of moms wearing insanely high heels who are chasing after their kids. That just doesn’t seem authentic in any way. I can’t relate to that at all. I love a good heel, but it has got to be practical too. I would call my overall style practical and stylish. I wear things that I feel good in, but I can also play on a playground in my clothes.

Gentle Skin Relief

I cared for my skin from the inside out with Aveeno® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #Aveeno®

My skin gets pretty sensitive during the cold months. The cold weather makes my skin dry out and makes it hard to keep moisturized. Products that have intense scents can also hurt because of how sensitive my skin is during these months. My skin gets so bad that lotion alone sometimes isn’t enough. That’s why I love that I have found Aveeno® Skin Relief Gentle Scents Wash.

Winter is upon us. This means that cold season is also here. The winter has only just come and my family has already been totally hit by the sick bug! Two of us got the flu and all of us have suffered from cold symptoms. After all of this, I have come to learn all of the essentials I need to carry with me at all times. [Read more…]

Puffy Paint Snowman Kid Craft

Sometimes I question why I live in Idaho. That usually happens during the winter when I freeze 90% of the day. Now that my daughter is old enough to understand the fun that can come with snow, she wants to go outside all of the time! The problem is that I don’t always want to get all bundled up and freezing! Instead of feeling like a failure as a parent, I like to come up with fun activities that we can do in the house so we an stay nice and cozy. This puffy paint snowman kid craft has been a major lifesaver! She loves playing with the puffy paint and she feels like she is still building a snowman. Of course she named her girl snowman “Olaf” too. So, what do you say? Do you want to paint an Olaf? Do you want to build a snowman?

Perfect Holiday Boots

I love this time of year. It is so fun to get dressed everyday! There are so many fun textures that you can introduce into an outfit during the cold months. It is the one thing that makes the cold enjoyable for me!

No matter how many layers I wear though, I have learned over the years that the most important part of a winter outfit is what is on your feet! Not only is important to have cute shoes, it is important to choose shoes that will help keep your feet warm! It doesn’t matter how many layers you are wearing. If your feet are cold, you will be too! Boots are so cute, but can be quite expensive. I love shopping at Payless ShoeSource for my boots. These adorable combat boots have kept my feet comfortable and cute without breaking the bank.

Payless is the perfect place to shop for yourself, your kids, or the man in your life this holiday season because they have a great, stylish selection and they always have great deals! After you shop for all of your loved ones, you will have a little extra money in your budget to treat yourself to some sweet shoes for yourself! Merry Christmas to you!

Who do you need to buy new shoes for this holiday season?
