Walk in Love


Surround yourself with people who genuinely want the best for you and watch yourself bloom into something more beautiful. Find your light and love, then walk in it.

Cherry Blossoms in the Winter


I ended 2017 saying I wanted to do more. I needed my outlet back, and after a bunch of unfortunate events, I decided that there was no better time than now to start. As you can see from my last 2 blog posts I've been making YouTube videos! I definitely want to put it out there: I AM NOT A MAKEUP ARTIST! Honestly, I don't even want to be one. I just like makeup and I enjoy doing it, so I decided to start filming it. Three weeks ago I had no idea how to edit a video, and now I've kind of gotten the hang of it. To say I'm proud of myself would be such an understatement. I'm just trying to enjoy this clear space in my head. I've included this weeks video below, as well as the video details after the cut.


Thanks for sticking it out with me this long.

More Life..


This year I was able to celebrate G. Day with one of my most favorite people, Jess. Last year, I was about to spend my birthday alone in Texarkana when Jess hopped on a plane and spent the weekend with me. Texarkana's lack of a nightlife threw her into overdrive. Last year's experience made her plan this year's birthdaycation: a weekend cruise to the Bahamas! I cant begin to tell you guys how amazing this woman is and how lucky I am to have her as a friend. 


We flew into Orlando's International Airport on Wednesday and spent that night drinking and vibing. I was able to bring in my birthday with my Ace. It was truly one of my best birthdays to date.. On Thursday, my birthday, we boarded the Carnival Liberty and commenced to having the most amazing best friend cruise known to man. Friday morning we woke up in the Bahamas and the things we experienced there was nothing short of epic. We got a personal tour to a private beach and ventured all over Nassau. We saw the real Bahamas, not just the touristy stuff and that in itself was dope. Saturday, we spent the day at sea and Sunday brought us back to reality as docked back in Orlando.


I had the time of my life, and I am excited to see what the future holds for us.

Le Canadian Tux


This weekend we were able to step away from our normal routine. Jeremy's football team was on a bye week and I didn't have to work! Sometime during the week I noticed my beautiful friend Ashlie of Embellished Nails by Ash was nearby for work so we had to link up! I was able to use that morning to record a Facebook Live #GetReadyWithMe video. We had an awesome Saturday, even though the temperature here in the Ark-La-Tex tried to play us, lol. We went to the Louisiana State Fair and caught Boo 2! A Madea Halloween at the Boardwalk Theater.

I hope you guys had as awesome a weekend as we did.

xo,

Glen

Recommitment


I've sat in front of my MacBook on and off for months wondering how to move forward. All I could think was "Photobucket took 9 years from me." I've contemplated starting anew, and I still may but for now, I'll press on. These past few months have been a rollercoaster for me. A connection I never thought would end, did and bonds I never thought would form materialized. I'm happy for all of it, however, because they continue to shape me into the woman I am supposed to be.

I felt myself heading back to a dark place, so I needed to balance my scale. I had to resume blogging. If for nothing else, at least for my mental health. I've been told over and over that I can not pour from an empty cup, so this is me, walking up to the counter and ordering a refill. 

All I ask of myself is to be better than the woman I was yesterday.
Stay beautiful you guys, inside and out.

xoxo,

Glen
