What Glamourstry Is All About

Hey Glamoristas/Beauties/Dolls!

So lately, I have been thinking a lot about many different things, and one of those things included the reason I decided to start my Glamourstry blog and YouTube channel.  One of the reasons I began this blog was because I wanted to chronicle my journey to creating a more glamorous self, in all areas of my life, but especially when it comes to beauty. I wanted to inspire others to do the same, and hopefully, build a community to where we can all learn and grow with each other.

For as long as I can remember, I have always been attracted to things and people that I felt epitomized glamour.  My Pinterest account is a reflection of my personal interest, style and a collection of what I view as very glamorous things, including home decor. I love magazines and all of those old movies and Hollywood icons from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Oh…and let’s not forget pin-up girls who all depicted glamour, sophistication and an allure so compelling that their styles and flare has lived and been mimicked throughout time, even up to present day!

We have strayed away from the sophistication of dressing up and steered towards what some would refer to as ‘practicality’.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not knocking  anyone who enjoys dressing down and throwing on a good comfortable pair of sneakers.  All I am saying is…I appreciate a time when women AND men went out of their way to look their best and ensured a certain standard in everything that they do.

Bring on the rouge lips, high heels, nice dresses and all things that sparkles and shines! Bring on the empowerment that comes from looking and feeling your best and letting your allure do the attracting all on its on. I am on a journey to that…creating more glamour in my life…embracing my inner diva…and I welcome anyone, who wishes to go on the journey with me! To see videos of this journey, visit my channel. I’ll be waiting for you there!
