Cheers to 5 Years

The Glamorous Gleam 5 Years Anniversary

I mentioned it in my Made In America post but in case you missed it The Glamorous Gleam is 5 years old! I started this blog on September 1st, 2009 and what a journey it has been. There has been ups and downs, times when I suffered from lack of inspiration and wanted to quit and times that I just didn’t feel like blogging anymore but I stuck it out and I’m still standing. 5 years long, 5 years strong and I don’t plan to bow out anytime soon. I took this picture at the Dinner With Glam the other day and I thought it was perfect for the occasion.

Thank you guys for all of the support you show me through comments, social media interaction and simply visiting and reading. I appreciate all of my readers, those who have been here from the beginning to those who may have just found me and this is your first post. To show my appreciation, starting next week I will be hosting 5 giveaways, one to celebrate each year. Make sure that you don’t miss out on any of the giveaways or bonus entries by following me on my social media networks. It’s a good way to keep up with The Glamorous Gleam anyway as when I’m not here I’m updating there.

Cheers to 5 years… Let’s celebrate being Glamorous. Stay tuned!

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
