Six Years Glamorous

The Glamorous Gleam is 6 Years Young. I truly can't believe that it's been six years already. I appreciate the continued support and love that you guys show

Wow. I truly can’t believe that it’s been six years already. I started The Glamorous Gleam on September 1, 2009 and it’s come a LONG way. When I look back at some of the swatches and makeup looks that I posted in the early years I can only shake my head and laugh. What was I thinking?! It’s all good though, you live and you learn lol. Thank you so much to those of you who have been here from the beginning, those that stumbled upon the site and stayed over the years and to all of the newbies. I appreciate the continued support and love that you guys show whether it be here or in those social media streets. Since my Big Chop in January, Natural Hair has been a huge addition to the site and I never imagined that the feedback would be so amazing. I will continue to document my natural hair journey in hopes of inspiring others to love their natural hair and guide them in keeping it strong and healthy.

The Glamorous Gleam Sixth Aniversary


I don’t foresee any other major changes on The Glamorous Gleam in the immediate future, but I do plan to try my best and keep it versatile and funky. I know a lot of you guys have been requesting more makeup looks along with tutorials and it’s coming. I’ve been doing much better with being consistent on YouTube but hair has taken over my channel, so I need to find a balance with the makeup.

What would you guys like to see more of?

Thank you for your kind words and being understanding. I really appreciate that as at times people forget that I’m just a regular old person with a life outside of the site 🙂
