Wine Glass Writer Around the House

I might have mentioned once or twice that in our house we love wine. Drinking a good glass of wine is great but to me it's just as much about the experience - I love going to wineries and walking through the vineyards , putting out pretty crystal glasses on the dining table for guests and collecting fun accessories. When I first saw Wine Glass Writer I figured it would be a fun way to keep up with who's glass is who's when we have parties and since they're a fun wine accessory I needed them, right?
 
When my package arrived I immediately got out a few glasses and started practicing making my name as pretty as possible on my wine glasses and truth be told it was pretty fun. Since a wine glass is a pretty small surface I started looking around the house for other surfaces to write on and it turns out Wine Glass Writer is quite versatile. The best part about Wine Glass Writer though isn't all the fun you can have with it - although we'll get to that - I love that they were developed by a mother daughter team - Jeannine and Renee! Since I love using Wine Glass Writer and I especially love using it when we're celebrating I've teamed up with this fab mother / daughter duo to help you celebrate the Mom in your life with a GIVEAWAY! But first, let me show you some of the fun ways I've been using Wine Glass Writer around the house.
 
 

When we have friends over for an event they tend to be pretty informal affairs - the kind of come on in and make yourself at home kind of events - so I'm not always available to greet each guest at the door. Writing a note on the glass is a fun way to let people know there's no need to ring the doorbell and wait to be let in but looks a lot nicer than a post-it note on the door - plus it won't fall off and become litter.
 


 
When entertaining my goal is always to have the drinks ready to go so that even if I'm finishing up details in the kitchen (which I often am truth be told) everyone can go ahead and have a drink and get the party started. Instead of just setting out the Wine Glass Writer I like to leave my guests a little note so they know how to use the Wine Glass Writer. Even when not entertaining I like to write fun sayings on a picture frame for a cute home accent - and it can be changed whenever I want without building more clutter.
 
 
 
 While I only like wine, Shaun likes beer as well and actually brews some of his own - which of course he loves letting people sample and tell him what they thinks. Since his homebrew gets put into recycled bottles Wine Glass Writer has been the perfect solution to identifying which beer is in each bottle and then we can just wash them and re-label again without having to peel off messy stickers.
 
 
Because the writing stays put once dry (it takes 60 seconds to fully dry) but washes off so easily I don't mind using Wine Glass Writer on my nice crystal glasses. In the past I have had a collection of fun celebration glasses but while I prefer a matched collection now I still like a little fun and whimsy now and then - this gives me the best of both worlds because I can take one of the glasses I already own and decorate it however I want without building up a collection of individual celebration glasses.
 
 
Of course, before there can be any celebrations there's some behind the scenes work and planning that goes into hosting a great event. I have found that using the glass door on our microwave is a convenient place for me to jot down items we're running low on or things I need for the week without having to pull out my phone while in the middle of cooking or going through paper lists that I'll inevitably lose. 
 
 
Speaking of cooking, I've been trying to eat healthier lately and I'm still trying to get the portions right. Since Wine Glass Writer is non-toxic I'll just draw a quick grid on my plate to remind myself to not take too much carbs (because I love some carbs) and get enough veggies. Typically I just draw the lines, but I wanted to show y'all an example of what I would put on my plate.
 
 
As you can see, I went well outside the box with my Wine Glass Writer. What I thought would be something cute and fun to have has turned into something pretty darn useful. If you've environmental conscious, and really we all should be, I think you'll especially enjoy how Wine Glass Writer can help reduce waste - this was not at all something I set out to do in my home, it just happened.
 
Of all the ways to use Wine Glass Writer my favorite has to be giving as a gift (pairing with a bottle of wine isn't necessary but hey it doesn't hurt). So here's the fun part - head over to my Instagram and enter to win some for a special mom in your life (or for yourself too, I won't tell). You can also use the code everyonewins10 for 10% off your purchase.

Holiday Mail

I love sending Christmas cards, I also love getting Christmas / holiday cards. Growing up Christmas cards were serious business. My Mom kept a book of who she sent them to and who sent one to us, three years and no card you were off the list. It's something my friends and I discuss today, seems like lots of moms ran their card list that way and now I find myself being a little less strict but keeping up with my list the same way. You would think that by 29 I'd have a pretty firm list of people I send Christmas cards to, but nope, it continues to change every year. Of course, the fact that I lost the disk with all the addresses from the prior year hurt a lot, that address list had every single person who attended my mom's memorial service or sent a card, it was a very handy but sad way to keep up with my non immediate family. A few years ago I use to think that I'd send a card to anyone that if I was to become engaged would make it onto my wedding guest list. Now that…

Loft Plus Size In Store Launch

Loft recently launched the plus size collection size 16 to 26 in 50 stores across the US. Although I will make a few exceptions I really prefer to shop in person to try on items so I was very excited to hear my local store would be one of the 50 locations offering plus sizes. The Carriage Crossing location in Collierville, TN is the only location in the entire state to feature the collection in store and I was on hand to celebrate in full force at the recent launch party.

The team at Loft Carriage Crossing is so sweet and set up the sweetest in-store celebration.

Cupcakes by Buttercup brought the A game with the sweets - these are so moist and tasty!

Ehblooms provided the most beautiful bouquets in the perfect colors to celebrate fall fashion Sarah Howard with Limelife provided makeovers which was really fun. This was my first time experiencing this makeup line and I loved the pigmentation of the eye shadows - here's my finished look:
But of course we were all there for some fab…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…

Easy At Home Teeth Whitening

Recently I was asked to submit a headshot and y'all I was so embarrassed - my teeth were yellow! So I decided to use the Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system to take care of it - sure I could just edit my photos to make my teeth look white but I'd rather have a bright white IRL smile.
Over the years I have used many whitening products - toothpaste, lights, strips and make at home trays but the reality is no matter how great the solution is getting it to stay on the teeth is the key to whitening and there's simply no match for a custom fit tray - which is exactly what Smile Brilliant offers.

In order to get a custom tray without having to visit the dentist  Smile Brilliant provides the materials needed to make molds of the teeth at home to be sent off for fitting. When I received my kit it came with all the instructions and enough materials to make three molds - this way if I got it wrong on the first try it was no big deal - I had enough materials to try again. Howeve…

Essential Oil Make and Take

This year I've been doing a lot of homemade products and while it started off as being tired of running to the store for laundry detergent and face wash every few weeks its turned into more than that. As I researched and lookedup recipes   I started to discover that I could use homemade products for my health! I get migraines y'all and I will do ANYTHING to treat them. I've unsuccessful taken preventative medicine, destroyed my liver and stomach lining with OTC treatments for years, drained my bank account on prescription drugs, gone to the chiropractor, severally limited my alcohol and I still get them. My remaining options were: Botox, acupuncture, and moving to Colorado. But now I have hope. So where am I finding this hope? In essential oils. 
I've spent the past month really looking into it and decided I have nothing to lose. So as I was looking into different brands a FB friend posted that she was having an Essential Oils 101 class and Make and Take - perfect timin…
