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?


My Birthday Re-Cap! *~[ ]

My birthday was on Friday, the 16th. And. It. Was. Awesome!! My amazing hubby surprised me with a little out-of-town get away! We went to a baseball game the night we got there. The next day got a mani/pedi! Then we went to lunch at Fogo De Chao. If you ever get the chance to go there, seriously, do it! Just be sure that you’re hungry, because you will most likely eat waaaay too much like we did! After we were done eating, I got to go on a shopping spree! My husband is the best, special shout out to him and a very special thank you for making my day so wonderful!!

We left to go home so that we could have a birthday dinner with my family, we went to Jason’s Deli, and I was still super full from lunch. My family is the best! Thank you shout out to them for being awesome and for being my family!

Below are a couple of items that I got for my birthday:

I got this super cute rose gold “C” initial necklace:Initial C Necklace

I got the Catching Fire DVD. I haven’t read the books yet, I like the surprise of what’s going to happen in the movies. This movie was seriously the best movie I had seen in a looong time!

Catching Fire DVD

I got “The One” by Kiera Cass. This is the 3rd book of a trilogy that she has written. If you’re looking for a good summer read, let me recommend this Selection series. I call it the “Happy Hunger Games”. Super short description: The people in the book live in different castes depending on their wealth and jobs. The prince has become of age where he needs to wed. The girls of their country have to apply for the possibility to be his future wife and queen. 35 girls were chosen. They all move into the castle and vie for the prince’s love and affection. It’s also similar to the Bachelor / Bachelorette, just way better 😉

If you haven’t read these books, do so! I can’t wait to start this one!

The One by Kiera Cass

I got 2 new charms for my Origami Owl necklace which I absolutely looove!

I also got Lauren Evart’s book, “The Skinny Confidential“. She is another blogger, who I follow pretty regularly. She has some great tips and I’m excited to start this book as well!

The Skinny Confidential

I had come across a monogram cake on Pinterest that I was obsessed with the moment I saw it. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m obsessed with monograms, so this was the perfect cake for me!

My Monogram Cake

If you’re curious, the necklace that I’m wearing is from the jewelry that I sell, Chloe + Isabel. I received so many compliments when I wore it.

Here’s me with my birthday cake!

My Birthday!

Thank you to everyone who helped make my birthday so special, you know who you are 😉

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!


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

4th of July Summer Glam


I love dressing up for holidays and going with the theme of the day. And 4th of July is just around the corner! I love the 4th of July, it’s fun to be with family and friends and lay out, go swimming, grill some burgers and watch the fireworks. Although, I do think fireworks are a little over-rated, but it’s still a fun time!

Below I’ve put together 2 different outfits for your 4th of July barbecue! One is more girly and the other is a bit more edgy.

Which one do you like the best?
