Workout Gear

So, I went shopping and got new workout gear!! So exciting! I went in with a 20% off coupon to Sports Authority. But when I got there, they were having a ton of sales! It seemed like every rack had a sale sign on it (which I’m not complaining about). So instead of getting something with my 20% off coupon, I took advantage of the store wide sale and got BOGO 50% off. Can’t beat that deal, or pass it up! 😉

My New Workout Gear

WHITE TANK

CAPRI LEGGINGS- I couldn’t find them on the site, but they are Soffee brand.

For the past month or so, I’ve been taking a beginners bicycle class at the Y. I absolutely love it! It’s such a wonderful workout. I’m literally dripping in sweat about half way through (…or a little before then).

After one of the classes I attended, an elderly gentleman came up to me and said I should be in a more advanced class and I was like, oh no! This one is perfect for me! It’s tough! I can’t imagine how much more intense an upper level class would be.

I love biking! It’s so much fun and such a great workout. I think I get my [newfound] love for biking from my Dad, he’s all about biking! Thanks Dad! 🙂

The hubs and I bought new bikes and we’ve been riding them everyday that we can. The other day we went 11.8 miles and were pretty impressed with ourselves!

My Top 3 Favorites!

My Top 3 Favorites [caretobeglam]

I love seeing different beauty products that people love and maybe giving some of those a try. I absolutely loooove my top 3 and if you decide to try them out, I hope you do  too!

#1: Light Pink / White nails

Light Pink Nails

I love love love light pink / white nails! Can’t you tell from the pic? Lol I love OPI and Essie nail polishes.

I think it’s so classy and elegant! And it makes my wedding ring shine even brighter than it already does! I think that light pink / nude / white nail polish can be worn all year long. I love white in summer, it pops out in the sun. I just painted my nails red yesterday to give that a try, I’m just not a red nails kind of gal, so I’ll be painting them white after I write this post.

#2 Face Wash and Scrub

Face Wash & Scrub [caretobeglam]

My face is unfortunately super sensitive and I have only been able to find a few different brands that I can use without my face drying out like crazy. I read in The Skinny Confidential book that she recommends just using a good ol’ fashioned organic / natural bar of soap. I did my research and found one online that had tons of reviews and I couldn’t find a single bad one. So I bought the bar of soap from Target and used it for a month and it dried my face out, like every other cleanser. It was disappointing since it was all natural…

I came across this Garnier Smoothing Cream Cleanser and I LOOOVE it! My skin and complexion are so much better and my skin looks awesome! I also was wanting to try their Blackhead Eliminating Scrub that has charcoal in it. I always read how charcoal is somehow a great beauty product. I also really love this scrub! It smells good too! Actually, they both smell good! For cleansers and scrubs, I think I’ll just be sticking with Garnier. I haven’t been disappointed, yet.

#3 Chloe + Isabel Stud Earrings

Chloe + Isabel Stud Earrings [caretobeglam]

I’m the type of girl who usually wears the same jewelry everyday. And these earrings, I wear almost everyday. This picture is a little blurry, but these earrings are so cute! They’re different than your typical stud without a halo. I love the halo around the center stone in these earrings. They capture the light nicely as well. These earrings are a classic that can be paired with any outfit!

What are your top 3 favorites?

Maxis to the Max!

Maxi skirts.

I just love them! They are ah-mazing! They are so effortless to wear, all can you do is throw on a plain tee, a graphic tee, a button down denim shirt, a cute tank and you’re good to go! Because of the versatility of maxi skirts, you can dress them up or dress them down.

I also love how comfortable they are. The fabric they are made out of makes it feel like I’m wearing sweat pants, in skirt form. Maxi skirts are one of my favorite trends that I hope stays around for awhile.

Which one pictured below is your favorite? I love them all, I can’t decide on just one!

Maxi Skirts

  1. Soft Joie Redmond
  2. Michael Kors Stripe Side Slit Skirt
  3. Calvin Klein Print Maxi Skirt
  4. Roxy Solimar Sun Maxi Skirt
  5. Mossimo Supply Co. Jr’s Fold Over Maxi Skirt
  6. Splendid Column Maxi Skirt
  7. Mossimo Supply Co. Jr’s Maxi Skirt with Slit
  8. Mossimo Supply Co. Jr’s Foldover Maxi Skirt

My Crazy Nails

I love painting my nails! It lets me be creative and it’s just plain fun and girly to have my nails painted.

Crazy designs and random colors are all the rage right now. The craziest I got was painting my nails all different colors and with my monogram! (I’m obsessed with monograms, but that’s a different story.)

I’m trying to be all artistic with taking the pic by a banana, did it work?

Here is all the colors I used to paint my nails.

#1- Essie

#2- Pure from Icing

#3- Kiss

#4- OPI (my favorite brand of nail polish)

I found the monogram decals on Etsy. (They are so easy to put on, you cut out the decal, get the paper wet, take the decal off the paper and place it on your nail.) I LOVE Etsy! If you haven’t checked it out yet, you’re seriously missing out.

Monday #OOTD

I love this #OOTD (outfit of the day). First off, this dress is super comfortable! The top has an overlay, so it looks like a shirt and skirt, but just kidding! It’s not! It’s a dress!

I think it looks great with nude heels. Fashion Tip: Wearing nude heels makes your legs look longer and I think these specific nude heels make me look more tan, which I can’t complain on that one :-).  The jewelry is from the line that I sell, Chloe + Isabel.

Have a great Monday!

Happy 2 Years to Care to be Glam

I can’t believe it’s already been 2 years since I started Care to be Glam! A lot has happened in my life the past 2 years, it’s crazy!! I look forward to more years with Care to be Glam. I hope that you’ve enjoyed my posts as much as I have.

This wallet is amazing and fits so much. You can put your iPhone in here, business cards, credit cards and more. This is the Mary Poppins of wallets.

Fall Favorites

Fall is among us, whether we like it or not. I enjoy Fall, it’s not my favorite, I’m a summer girl through and through, but I do enjoy the Fall (to an extent). I like the wearing sweaters, boots, seeing the changing leaves, being all cozy, sipping on coffee (not the pumpkin stuff). I just don’t like what comes after it…winter.

One of my favorite fall fashion staples are boots. I just can’t seem to get enough of them! For starters, they keep my feet warm and I think they really pull an outfit together.

Jeggings, boots and an oversized sweater is definitely a fall go-to outfit. It’s perfect for a bonfire, football game, enjoying coffee with some friends or that special someone.

Below I’ve posted a Fall outfit featuring a one of my favorite sweaters, boots and jewelry!

FALL OUTFIT

I know these sweaters fly off the shelves, so if you see one you like...get it!
