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.

Custom Hair Care with Formulate

I've had short hair most of my life, but the past few years I have been growing my hair out and one thing has become very clear - long hair is a commitment. And long hair that has been color treated for years is a project, which is why I was so excited when the team at Formulate reached out to have me try their new custom shampoo and conditioner. Even better yet - we have teamed up to give one lucky reader their own custom set for FREE!

Enter GIVEAWAY here! Getting hair care customized for your hair sounds complicated but the process was very simple as a consumer - I took a brief survey about my hair's current condition and what my hair goals were - you can pick up to five. I have a pretty oily scalp so that was my top priority but color protection, heat protection,. frizz and volume are also my concerns. I was then able to select my scent and strength - I like a strong scent in my shampoo that leaves a light linger and selected the green apple - I've been getting complime…

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

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…

Why I Blog

Years before I had an instagram account I had a Yelp account and I must admit that my very first review was a terrible 1 star review. While I think honest good and bad experiences are valuable on review sites I realized that's not the person I wanted to be. Instead of only putting negative thoughts into the world I challenged myself that for every negative review to take the time to write five positive reviews. Soon I found myself gushing over businesses I love and writing reviews of businesses I was trying for the first time. Within a few months I was invited to join the Elite squad - now I  have over 250 reviews and have reached gold elite status - this means I've been on the squad for five years. As much as I enjoy sharing reviews I enjoy reading them. I'm a planner and researcher by nature so before I go anywhere I want to know as much as possible. For example, when we go out to California we're going to have tea at the Hello Kitty Grand Café - I have read every …

This is Us

Y’all this year I was so excited for our anniversary activity - the 2nd anniversary traditional gift is cotton and there was a cotton field nearby. The website said “mid October” would be the perfect time for pictures so I booked a session for our anniversary weekend on the 21st. We stop by the field the day before to check it out and it was all gone. Even though no harvest date was listed on the website a week earlier it had since been updated that the cotton was harvested that Friday – seriously, they couldn’t have given one more weekend for photos, grr! All the other cotton fields were too far away so I cried how our anniversary was ruined. We wound up moving photos to the same spot where we took our wedding photos and brought along the dogs to get our family Christmas card photo. This session did not go as well as I would have liked – Because I didn’t plan to originally have the dogs sweetie was not freshly groomed. My brand new sweater got snagged by one of the dogs getting in and…
