Modern Day Mona Lisa


Over the past few months, Vera of Brown Hippie Chick and I have been burning up Painting with a Twist. The atmosphere is ingratiating and for $35 you're able to leave with a tangible creation. It's always a fun experience when we attend. We love making a "thing" of it and to date, we've always enjoyed our time.


This go-round the theme was "Finesse" inspired by the Bruno Mars/Cardi B hit single. The instructors are always so knowledgeable and patient with you. On this particular night, the studio was filled with novice and experienced painters alike and together we all had a blast. #BlackGirlMagic was all through the air and we can't wait to go back.  


What kind of things do you guys enjoy?!
V and I may be in the market for more funtivities, lol.
Stay gorgeous, you guys.

Light Beams..


Dress: Missquided • Heels: Lola Shoetique

Recently my beautiful friend Samaantha (who you may remember from this guest post) implored me to wear more yellow. Afer thinking about it, I realized that MANY of my closest friends had made very similar requests. I decided to explore it and I must say I've been enjoying it! At the moment it mirrors how I feel inside: happy and full of life. 


Crop Top + Distressed Jeans: Marshall's

There is no real way to decribe how alive I currently feel. My pride and joy just turned 7 and is still doing exceptionally well in school. My close friends and family are thriving and I could not be more happy for them. Happiness may truly be contagious and keeping the right people in close proximity absolutely will nourish your soul.

What drives you?! What keeps you going?!
I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!
Until next time, stay fab.

Horse Shoes & Hand Grenades..


Summer is Close! We are finally starting to see some semblance of Spring here in Central Texas! This week, there's been a slight chill in the morning but it always seems to disappear by mid-day. Jerm and I decided to take advantage of the warmth and GET OUT OF THE HOUSE! If you know Jerm, you know he eats, sleeps and breathes football so that thing is always glued to his hands.

Even if you have to force it, sometimes it just takes you getting up, dressing up and getting out there to ensure that you enjoy life.  Live your best lives, loves.

xoxo,

Glen

Crowned.


Now that the initial move is complete I'm going to attempt to bring some normalcy back into my life. It was a seemingly smooth transition and we're excited to start this new chapter. Once we're all unpacked I hope to be able to give you guys a tour of our new home as well! This week I recorded a new makeup video, but due to some technical difficulties, I'll have to try again at a later time. Thank you all for being so patient with me as I take this one day at a time.

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.
