What better season than spring to try new tricks to refresh your routine?
Spring is the season of change and new beginnings and we can’t wait to share with you some great ideas to makeover your smile, your sandwich, your snack time, and your soirees (hello, girl time). We’re so excited to be partnered with Martha Stewart Living to show you how you can make life better with ease.
Make It Better With Martha: Makeover Edition
We were sent a box of goodies that had the “necessities” we needed for a fun makeover. Each mini-makeover had its own story…
Makeover Your Smile
Life is just better when you smile! Make it better with Maybelline SuperStay 24 Hour Lipstick.
Seriously, we’ve been using this lipstick every day for the last week and it is incredible!
It applies smoothly, dries quickly, and stays on for a full 24 hours even through eating, drinking, and (okay, I admit) sleeping. One end contains the lipstick and the other a powerful lip balm that moisturizes.
Makeover Your Sandwich
One of my favorite foods in the entire world is a good grilled cheese sandwich. It is why I am so excited that The Grilled Cheese Recipe Showdown ® is back!
And that means YOU could win something beyond a delicious lunch…
Put your grilled cheese culinary skills to work and show how you can make it better with Wisconsin cheese for your chance to win $15,000. Enter to win here.*
If that’s not a good excuse to make a grilled cheese sandwich, then I don’t know what is.
Makeover Your Snack Time
Makeover your snack time with Weight Watchers Sweet Baked Goods.
I tried out Weight Watchers Salted Caramel Brownie Bliss and was surprised by the deep chocolate flavor and smooth caramel center. It’s a decadent sweet and salty experience you have to taste to believe. With emphasis placed on great taste, the entire line of these Weight Watchers products help you enjoy the sweeter side of life in perfectly portioned sizes.
The Tasting is Believing Challenge allows you to try out any Weight Watchers Sweet Baked Goods risk free from April 1 – May 31, 2016. If you don’t love it, they’ll give you your money back.
Pssst…you are going to love it!
Makeover Your Soiree
Every mom needs a girl’s night in and you can make it better with Martha Stewart Crafts ®. We made this cute and reusable chalkboard for our little get-together using products fromMartha Stewart Crafts ®. Martha has everything we needed to make a DIY chalkboard.
Here’s how we did it:
DIY Chalkboard Menu
Materials for Chalkboard Menu Craft:
- Martha Stewart Crafts Chalkboard Paint in Ink
- Martha Stewart Crafts Basic Brush Set
- Martha Stewart Crafts Chalkboard Stencils
- Martha Stewart Crafts Erasable Liquid Chalk
- Martha Stewart Crafts Stencil Tape
Steps for Chalkboard Menu Board Project:
- Paint the backing of the frame with chalkboard paint and let dry. Paint a second coat for even coverage.
- Once the chalkboard paint is dry, tape down the chalkboard stencils using stencil tape.
- Use Martha Stewart Crafts Erasable Liquid Chalk to write out menu ideas and create designs. The erasable liquid chalk won’t smudge, but can be removed with a damp paper towel.
- Remove the stencil immediately while paint is still wet.
- Once the liquid chalk designs are dry, insert the chalkboard piece into a frame and get cooking!
I had such a good time with this makeover and know you can use these ideas to freshen up and makeover your life this spring. Whether it’s a new lipstick to wear, a grill cheese sandwich to refresh, a perfectly-portioned treat to enjoy or a cute craft to make, we believe you will love these products that will help you better manage your life.
