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.

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …

Vineyard Vines for Target Picks

The annual Target collaboration is something I look forward to all year. From the time when the announcement is made until the look book is released I get antsy with anticipation and then once the look book comes out I scour over it and plan what I will get from the collection.
I love these collabs because a. I love target b. I love getting designer style at prices I can afford and c. target tends to collab with brands that don't offer plus sizes so it's a way for me to participate in a style I enjoy. This year's collab is with Vineyard Vines and I am PUMPED for the collection to be released tomorrow so I figured y'all might enjoy seeing my top picks from the collection.



This pink pullover is the target collection version of the VV Shep shirt. These are great for layering and simple classic style pieces. Since this is a spring collection I imagine this will be very lightweight. The whale shorts is quintessential VV and just adorable. They look to be a little short f…

Blue Vibes Living Room

I'm a pretty decisive person , so when we moved into our home in 2017 I had a pretty good idea of how I wanted to decorate most of the rooms and to me the living room is the most important. The living room is the heart of the home - it's where the family relaxes after a long day at work, where guests are entertained and one of the first impression you get of someone's home and style. But in 2017 decorating the living room I wanted just wasn't in the cards - but I'm a patient person when I really want something and was willing to wait.
Just like when I was planning our wedding when planning our home décor I turned to pinterest to find inspiration and hone in on what I was looking for. I knew that I wanted a blue velvet tufted sofa and quickly had about 20 on my new home board - but eventually one photo stood out and became the "pinspiration" for our living room.

Go WILD, Y'all

I'm writing this post with a serious case of the Mondays as I'm recovering from Go Wild this past week. Go Wild is the annual conference run by the Wild for Planners group and it is so much fun! This year's conference was in Nashville and while there is was announced that 2018 will be in Austin, TX. In addition to bringing planner enthusiasts together this event also presents the opportunity to hear from great speakers, meet planner  / planner goodies suppliers and the part that people to notice the most - awesome swag.   I first found out about the group last year when some planner girls I followed posted on instagram about the conference. To an outsider it looks like oh fun, planner girls gathering and getting tons of swag - I want to go! But the reality is it's so much for than that and to be perfectly honest if you're only interested in the swag you'd be better off staying home and going on a shopping spree. Since everyone wants to know the most though wha…

Gingham Style Color Three Ways

Anyone who knows me knows I love gingham for it's classic preppy style and versatility. I have several gingham tops and gingham dresses but am just now getting comfortable with wearing printed bottoms. In addition to being comfortable and perfect for summer I am loving these gingham pants from Jessica London because I can wear them with a variety of colors. The possibilities are endless but in this post we're taking a look at three different colors to pair with gingham.
The most obvious color is white and since gingham is always white and one other color it will go with gingham in any color. A lot of people get intimidated by white because it seems hard to clean - while it's true that white will highlight a stain I find white easier to treat stains that colored garments because it can be bleached. Plus, white gives summer fresh vibe. I went with an off the shoulder top for my white because it also screams summer to me. Since this top has statement sleeves with the side b…
