Happy Thursday! For those of you who are new around here, you might be extra curious to what this Glamour Randoms business is all about.
A while back, I started a series on the blog that shares a handful of random things I have been wanting to incorporate somewhere. From funny pictures and videos to healthy lunch ideas, you never really know what to expect!
In a true casual fashion, I have a few fun things to share today…
1. Sunless Tanning Spray
Since getting back to dancing in the NBA, I have also taken on the challenge of keeping up a tan in Michigan. As you can probably imagine, this is not an easy task.
Luckily, the team sponsors our visits to a local tanning salon that also provides airbrush spray tans and a discount on product. Here is my new obsession in the sunless spray department: California Tan Instant Sunless Spray.
A can retails for just around $30, but considering that one actual airbrush spray tan usually costs about the same price, it seems like a steal.
You can also find it super cheap on Amazon.com for around $12!
• California Tan Instant Sunless Spray – Dark Bronzing Spray
I have been using this product for about a month now and am loving the results. Simply follow the same steps you would before getting any kind of spray tan, apply, and allow at least six hours for it to set in before showering.
To see a few more of my self-tanning picks, check out my beauty pampering on a budget post.
2. Favorite Pandora Radio Stations
I am a serious music addict.
I am so grateful that something like Pandora Radio exists! Since I work at home on the computer, I have a CD, or more frequently, Pandora on in the background during the majority of my day.
I have recently been glued to a handful of slower, calming stations including Gavin DeGraw Radio, Eric Hutchinson Radio and Ed Sheeran Radio.
For those of you who prefer more of an up-beat mood, I shared my latest workout playlist on the blog this week too.
If you happened to notice the variety in my stations pictured above, it is clear that I have a love for almost any kind of music out there.
3. Fitness Pilates
Have you ever found that perfect group fitness class that makes you want to keep coming back for more?
For a while, it was barre for me. I tried it, fell in love and eventually taught at two studios! Since moving up north, I have taken a few barre classes but have not committed to regularly attending a studio. I still LOVE the workout method, but instead have been enjoying my membership at a full-sized gym.
Lucky for me, there is a class called Fitness Pilates that has kept me pretty happy. It is a full hour of core work that also ties in cardio, stretching, arms, legs, and full-body strengthening exercises. Like clockwork, you will now find me spending my lunch break at Lifetime Fitness every Monday and Wednesday.
If you have a gym that offers group fitness classes and have never tried one out, I strongly urge you to do so! Especially at the bigger gyms, it seems like there is a class fit for any kind of workout style.
4. Cocoa Almond Butter
Ohhhhhh boy, am I in trouble!
Before moving to Michigan, I had only read about Trader Joe’s on blogs and seen their products in pictures. Now that I live just a few miles from one, I have the opportunity to try what seems to be almost any kind of delicious spread known to man.
My recent obsession is this Cocoa Almond Spread.
Oh my word.
5. Best of Schmidt Video
I am ending this post with something I have been storing in the back of my put me in a good mood pocket… Are there any New Girl fans out there???
I thought so! Those of you who have seen the show probably have the same love affair with Schmidt as I do. If you have yet to meet him, here is what I like to call the “best of him”.
He is “so nectar,” yet… so inappropriate.
I hope this compilation of randoms provided a tip or two, or at the very least put a smile on your face. If not, maybe sharing that tomorrow is Friday will do the trick? BOOM.
Have a great rest of the day! 🙂
love glamour randoms!
I’m also thinking of spearheading a campaign to bring back wedding wednesdays!
who’s with me??!
Ha, awesome Sarah… I love your excitement! I will give it some thought, but until then you can get your wedding fix by checking out the blog I write for a wedding photographer! http://victoriaangela.com/blog/ 😉

That cocoa almond spread looks delish. We just got a new Trader Joes in Sarasota. I haven’t been able to make it there yet, but some friends picked up Trader Joe’s cookie butter. It’s really good. You should try it next time.
I just saw the cookie butter on their site today. Sounds amazing! Will have to pick it up on my next trip.
i love randomness.. You have to try the cilantro and jalapeno hummus from trader joe’s. oh boy, yummy!! I spread that baby everywhere. um, on food of course! 🙂 I am obsessed with pilates!! My gym offers pilates 3 times a week . I especially love my instructor, she’s awesome. she keeps the class fun and challenging. the gym is also starting a body flow class next week. it’s fusing tai chi, yoga, and pilates. i’m anxious to attend. i also bought a groupon of hot yoga/pilates! i’ve tried it once before and never went back!! lol. but, this studio is much closer to my home and less crowded. l’oreal sublime bronze self tanning is my fav!! lately I’ve been using the towelettes, less messy!
Ohhh this is the hummus you talked about today on Instagram! I will HAVE to go and get it soon, sounds amazing! I think instructors make all the difference in group fitness classes. I think you will love hot yoga!
