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.

10 Year Challenge

Earlier this week I shared an image encouraging people to think about their accomplishments over the past ten years rather than how their looks have changed and listed all the positive things that have happened in my own life. It's not that I mind sharing pics of what I looked like 10 years ago but just sharing a picture doesn't tell the whole story. I had a lot of people respond congratulating me on my accomplishments and while I appreciate that it made me realize my intention was never to brag or say oh, look how great my life has been because the past ten years have been years of struggle and success.
Here you see a girl who thinks she's the life of the party - she's 24 and has practically no responsibilities but I don't envy her or wish I could return to that lifestyle.
Meanwhile, you look at this 34 year old woman and you see she's changed the way she treats her hair, she has some lines around the eyes and roundness to her face that wasn't there befo…

Timeless Style of a Natural Stone Watch

Hello Friends! I hope 2018 wrapped up nicely for you and you're watching out for opportunities in the new year. I love gifting to others but let's be real - I also love treating myself which is why I'm so excited to be wearing a new watch into the new year! Plus- it's perfect for my New Year's resolution to be on time more in 2019. Don't worry - I have a treat for you too at the end of this post.

Last year I received a beautiful wooden watch (which I still love BTW) but there have been times when I 've  wanted something a little more elegant on my wrist. The folks at Jord must have been reading my mind because they just released the new Sier Arcadia collection featuring interchangeable leather and mesh bands and natural stone faces. Each style is truly beautiful but I was drawn to the Sodalite and Gold style because it's unique from any watch I've seen. I tend to wear a lot of blues so this unique style really compliments my wardrobe. The only oth…

Hello Kitty Tea

A few months ago I was scrolling on instagram and I saw some posts about a place called The Hello Kitty Grand Café. Now I had stopped by the Hello Kitty Café food truck when it rolled through Memphis (check out my post on that here) but this looked to be taking the experience to the next level. After digging into it I discovered that The Hello Kitty Grand Café was not far from my in-law’s home in Southern California and lucky for me we had trip already planned. The Hello Kitty Grand Café operates with several functions – the front section of the location operates just like the food truck with a menu of sweets and drinks, anyone can walk in for counter service and there are a few tables in addition to some photo spots available. In the back is The Bow Room which offers a pre-fixe tea menu during the day and turns into a cocktail lounge in the evenings. Reservations are currently taken through Yelp and open up 30 days in advance- while weekend reservations can be hard to come by its a l…

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…

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…
