The Best Parts..


Sometimes you have to force it. You have to fight the urge to lay in bed for days on end and make yourself get up. At times, that break from reality may be what you need, but there comes a time when you have to be real with yourself and realize that too much of a good thing becomes a bad thing. Revisiting the things that brought you joy previously can at times help you overcome whatever you are going through at the moment. Don't allow that weight to sit on your chest forever. Use these last few months of  2018 to further define the person you are meant to be.

Besitos


Lately, I  have been working so much that I barely have the energy to give you guys the posts you deserve. As I write this I am on a 24-hour shift that will end at 6am. To say I am tired would be an understatement! I have pulled these photos from Saturday's Snapchat story in hopes that they hold you over until next time. In the meantime, leave me comments on what kind of posts you guys would like to see in the future!

Besos,

Glen

L O V E H A P P Y


Lately, I've been doing personal audits on the people I have around me. It's refreshing to have people around who genuinely want the best for you, even when you don't know what that is for yourself. Yesterday, I casually told one of my girlfriends to remind me to blog today, so she texts me a picture of the reminder she set on her phone, lol! 


For this look, I used the Juvia's Place The Zulu Eyeshadow Palette. At the time, Jeremy's dad and little sister were visiting so I thought it would be fun to let the kids choose the colors for the look. I think they did a pretty good job. In the end, we were left with a bold, colorful look. For foundation, I used the Sephora foundation [in Deep 65] with their concealers [#19 and #20] to highlight and contour and this blingtastic highlight is Rose Gold by BECCA. To finish the look, I lined my lips with MAC's Nightmoth liner and topped them with Physicians Formula liquid lipstick in the shade Nut-rituos. 


Have you been doing subtle or bold looks this season?
Comment below, I'd love to know!
In the meantime, stay fab dolls!

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.

Glen

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.


Dress: ASOS • Sandals: Design

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
