Meet The Method Men

We have been a little obsessed with Method soap. It isn't always easy to find a product that works great, is well-designed AND is doing good in the world, but here it is. We asked Adam and Eric, the founders, to sit down with us and tell us all about their selves and their new product that is made from trash from the ocean. You can buy it at Whole Foods and at We love the manly grey of this bottle, lots of handsomeness going on in this video ;) Thank you to Method for being a great sponsor. We love working with you guys and gals! For more info on Method's ocean plastic project check this link out.

"Clean Happy" Song

Brooke and I had so much fun writing this song and making this video for Method. There aren't too many brands that we get this excited about, and no other cleaning brands! We love you Method, thanks for being fabulous, and thanks for sponsoring The Girls With Glasses Show.

Meet our Team - Tiffany

Hello everyone! I think you'll be really excited for this new blog feature we are starting. Brooke and I aren't a two woman show, it takes a small group of very talented people to make The Girls With Glasses show run as smooth and pretty as it does. We thought it'd be fun to feature a different member of our team each month and give them a shout out for all their hard work that makes us look good!

Today we'd like to introduce you to Tiffany, our new media maven. She's gorgeous, but more importantly, she brings her writing, blogging, social media, developing campaigns, and design work to The Girls With Glasses Show. We can't say enough about her!



What's your role with Girls with Glasses?
I'm the new media maven on the team, meaning I work behind the scenes to manage the Girls with Glasses blog, twitter, Facebook and Pinterest accounts - So little did you know a lot of the posts you see are actually me! Hah!

Idaho Falls, Idaho, but I currently live in Provo, Utah.

Where did you go to school?
I recently graduated from BYU with a bachelors degree in communications, and my emphasis was multimedia journalism.

Do you have a blog?
I do! It's

What inspires you?
I took a floral design class at BYU and have been in LOVE with flowers ever since. I thought flowers were nice before, but now I crave fresh flowers in my room and home all the time. In fact, our neighbor's rosebush has overgrown into our yard and on occasion I'll snip a few rogue roses and place them in a mason jar (don't tell). Seriously you guys, go buy yourself a batch of flowers and you tell me how quickly you can't live without them.

I also love organizing and decorating my space. I live with five roommates right now and you can't always guarantee cleanliness and organization in a living space like that, but my room is all mine. I've got the perfect comforter, beautiful prints, old cameras and even little glass knobs for the drawers on my dresser. If you love your space, inspiration will come on the daily.

Tell us some of your dreams/goals/aspirations:
I went to Paris a couple summers ago and would love to go back. There are other places I'd like to visit of course, but there was just so much to see in Paris; The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay, the Seine River, Notre Dame - the few days I was there couldn't do it justice!

My dream job would be doing behind-the-scenes marketing (writing, blogging, social media, developing campaigns, some design work - basically what I'm doing for GWG) job for some big name company like Anthropologie, Target, Dove, etc. For now though I'm looking for a full time job in the Provo/Salt Lake area. So if you know of anything let me know!

Have a lovely day!

Girls With Glasses Makeup Tip #2

Brooke and I love our little cat eyes, especially when we are filming the show. These two tips today are specific for getting that perfect look. We almost always are wearing false eyelashes, but when your not, most lashes could use a little pick me up, with an eyelash curler. Brooke shares her favorite two brands. I am all about the liner. Not being a pro, the NYX eye marker helps get you a smooth line, without needing years of experience. Hope you enjoy.


NYX Eye Marker $9 (They have it in skinny or fat)

Our Favorite New Albums.

Isn't it the best when you find an album you can listen to all the way through and love every song? Well, we thought we'd share a few of our favorite summer albums we've been keeping on repeat.
We guarantee you'll love every track:

That's right. The Beachboys have released a new album. No, you haven't traveled back in time, although it might feel like you have while listening to this.

Brandi Carlile, "Bear Creek"

For music with an Americana feel, a powerful female voice and lyrics that will rock your world check out Brandi Carlile's new album.

Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, "Here"

You may remember this band with their hit single, "Home." Well, they're back! This album will cheer you up on even the rainiest, dreariest summer day.

Meiko, "The Bright Side"

We love Meiko, an incredibly talented singer/songwriter who just released her second record. Sophomore albums don't always live up to the artist's debut, but she has succeeded in releasing another great album!

Jack and White, "Winter" and "Undercover"

Of course, we have to include Jack and White's latest EPs. They've been hard at work and have amazing things to show for it. Go take a listen!

What are your favorite summer albums right now?

Summer Swimwear

We're all about the one piece suit this summer. One pieces are making a comeback, and why ever not? They remind us of the retro swimwear looks of the 1940's and 50's, which were super flattering. If you're a little hesitant, here are a few of our favorite one pieces this season. 
We would wear any of these in a heartbeat:

What to Pack in your Hospital Bag When Having a Baby

There are a lot of lists on the popular pregnancy websites that are dedicated to everything you should bring for this big event. Each mom has to figure out what she thinks she needs and what she is going to skip. These are the four things that I was glad to have with me, and I think you will be glad too.
 Brooke and I are wearing clothes from H&M and the bag is from Ame & Lulu

Stripes for Springtime

Did you snag one of our gift bags at Alt Summit this year? 
Are you loving your oh-so-comfortable striped shirt we tossed in there? We are! 

Here are some quick tips for wearing stripes this spring:

Summer says:
  • When wearing striped shirts in a casual setting simplicity is the best. In my second look I paired it with gold stud earrings, dark blue jeans and ballet flats.
  • Stripes can be very nautical, to keep it looking fresh and current pair your striped shirt with unexpected colors and patterns.
Brooke says:
  • Stripes are always a good idea! 
  • Pair dark contrasting stripes such as navy and white, with pops of bright colors - pairs perfectly with neons this spring!
  • Wear vertical stripes to lengthen and thin, and horizontal to accentuate curves... like a baby bump :) 
{If you weren't able to snag one of our gift bags, never fear! The striped shirt we are both wearing above can be purchased over here at}

Party Planning 101

Our Altitude Design Summit party recap is finally here! 
You loved our party last year, so we had to make an even bigger impression this year.
How do you think we did?

For this year's Alt Summit we party planned with Pinhole Press. They were a fabulous company to pair with, because we love their products and they loved our ideas.

Capturing the event was the lovely Carolee Beckham. She is a talented photographer and such a blast to work with. To see more of the party attendees shot by Carolee, go here.

There was a lot of work to get this party to look as pretty as a picture. We started with the Paris theme. We had french macarons by Mercedes White. They were sublime. 
If you want to learn how to make your own, check out her site!

We had lots of French details - Big ones like the 10 foot Eiffel Tower, and little ones like our black and white umbrellas. {the photos below are from the Alt Summit Flickr}

We had a line wrapped down the hallway for our gift bags, which included adorable striped tees by Striped Shirt (Brooke and Summer love how comfy and flattering they are, pictures to come), chocolate from Godiva, a Jack and White EP, new Redken Power Grip 03, a Pinhole Press notebook, and more!

Flowers were done by Summer's talented cousin-in-law, Jamie Bellessa. We had simple greenery in our umbrella centerpieces and beautiful pale pink flowers in our flower cart.

We even talked the waitresses into letting us paint on the cutest little french mustaches!

It was an amazing night and we couldn't of done it without our amazing sponsor Pinhole Press and each member of our creative and hardworking team. Thanks again for an amazing night.
