Glossies Made Me Do It – April 2017

Glossies made me do it...!Welcome to the April edition of “Glossies Made Me Do It” link-up. Here’s what I’ve been reading.

The Oprah magazine article  “Shelf Awareness” pg. 63 made me feel guilty for all of the old cosmetics I’ve kept. I know that makeup expires, but it’s so hard to toss out something that’s not empty yet.

Another article in this month’s Oprah called “Kinder, Gentler” on pg. 96 made me happy.

Of all the verses and rules people like to memorize and quote, the Golden Rule is the only one I need.

When we learned it in kindergarten, the teachers would tell us to put on our “good manners gloves”. We would recite ” Do unto others as you want them to do to you” as we traced each finger of the imaginary gloves.

During wedding planning, I became interested in wedding etiquette and occasionally I like to read this blog/advice column on manners for an entertaining take on everyday situations.

Seeing Hilary Duff on the cover of Redbook made me remember how much I liked the show “Lizzie McGuire”

I  watched the first 2 seasons of “Younger” and I love that her character Kelsey is also someone viewers can imagine being friends with. Kelsey is ambitious, confident, and a risk -taker, but also has insecure moments and dating struggles. My favorite thing about her is that she believes in helping other women succeed.

That’s all for this month! If you missed March’s Glossies, you can find them here.

Glossies Made Me Do It

Glossies made me do it...!

I read several magazines each month and often find myself pinning recipes and decorating ideas from their pages. When I discovered this fun, monthly link-up “Glossies Made Me Do It” (“Glossies” are what our British friends across the pond call magazines – especially those related to fashion & beauty) I knew I wanted to join in.

Glossies Made Me Do It is hosted by Cat Eyes and Skinny Jeans, Shooting Stars Mag, and Happy, Pretty, Sweet starting on the 1st Friday of the month through the 24th

Here’s what I thought of  March’s magazines:

Essence

This ad for Maybelline’s  The 24K Nudes made me think of  Urban Decay’s Naked 3 pallet.  Have any of you beauty bloggers tried it?


Oprah

“Gooey, Crispy, Melty and Glorious Grilled Cheese” on page 130 made me pull out the panini press to make my own sandwich creation. This mix of cheese, bacon, guacamole and tomato was so melty and messy it had to be eaten with a knife and fork.

 

 

Redbook

“The great plastic basket makeover” on page 20 made me want to decorate.  I love that this basket looks so simple and cheap to make (#styleandsavings). Craft Cord comes in a variety of colors – you can choose one to match your color scheme.  

 

Join the “Glossies Made Me Do It” link-up  through March 24th and come back on the first Friday of next month for April’s issues.
