First of all I would like to thank all of you guys for your continued support over the years. As The Glamorous Gleam approaches it’s 5 Year Anniversary I will be making a few changes that I feel are necessary for continued growth. No worries, there won’t be anything too drastic. I just feel that I’ve been losing sight of what I want the site to become and therefore need to get a bit more focused in order to get where I want to be. So here goes…
Reviews. It has been review overload around here lately as I had a lot of stuff to clear off of my desk, but quite frankly I am reviewed out. I get so excited about new products and just want to share everything but reviews can sometimes be a bit boring. I don’t want The Glamorous Gleam to be just another review site. Therefore, I will be slowing down with the individual reviews. I will continue to review new products that I think you guys will be interested in and items that I find to be must haves for the brown skinned beauties, other than that I am going to try a monthly favorites series. Every month I will share my current favorite products including new purchases and old favorites that I’ve never shared along with mini reviews. I used to do this in the past and moved away for no particular reason, but I’d like to revisit this in an attempt to share more products with you guys without the long and drawn out reviews.
Makeup Looks and Tutorials. I plan to post makeup looks more often, including tutorials. Sometimes I don’t post my looks as I feel it’s too simple or boring but I have to remember that these looks are perfect for the everyday woman. I also would like to do more posts on techniques such as filling in brows, highlighting & contouring, eyelash application and such for those who are beginners or just want to brush up on their skills. Not saying that I am an expert but I can share my techniques to try and help you guys out with developing your own. I would also like to share more hair tutorials. In doing this I need to incorporate more videos since it’s easier to learn and replicate stuff when you see it firsthand. I completely neglect my YouTube channel as my editing software sucks and drives me crazy, but I’m going to really work on posting regularly. Please bear with me.
Fashion. Fashion holds just as big a place in my heart as beauty and I’ve totally been neglecting it. I haven’t been posting outfits lately as it’s been so cold here that I barely want to get dressed and go out. I’ve been keeping it very simple and warm, however I will be getting back to posting outfits regularly soon with Spring just around the corner. I also plan to start posting more outfit inspiration, fashion trends and more fashion related content in general.
Lifestyle. I plan to share more recipes with you guys as I’m always in the kitchen and love to cook. I also love to go out and eat and try new restaurants so I’ll try to incorporate that more. As well as travel, fitness and life in general. Sometimes we get so caught up in the day to day with planning and scheduling that we forget to just live and have fun. I plan to start living more, being a bit more spontaneous and just enjoying life… and I’ll share whatever I see fit along the way.
That’s all folks. If you guys have anything that you would like to see more of on The Glamorous Gleam feel free to share it in the comments. I love hearing from my readers!
