Behind Why I Love July

The dreaded first blog post.  I've gone over a million times in my mind what this is supposed to sound like, but I guess there's no right or wrong way.  This is me.  There are no rules or need to submit for a letter grade.

Hi, I'm Gladys.  I'm originally from Wine Country and currently reside in Silicon Valley where I go to school.  To be honest, I can't wait to get out of here.  With little interest in the tech industry, I really struck out in hopes of finding my dream job.  What is my dream job?  I don't really know.  What I do know is it sure as hell isn't in San Jose.  I'm looking to move shortly after graduation.

A quirky college student, my interest in beauty and fashion began at a young age.  My mother never let me experiment with makeup until around the age of 16.  I blame her for my obsession.  She made it forbidden, therefore alluring.  This blog will attest to this.  On the other hand—fashion, I blame myself.

As for Why I Love July?  July is quintessential.  It's the middle of summer, my favorite season.  How can you not when you live in California?  The best things always happen to me in July.  Oh, and summer love!  Not to mention my birthday, my moms birthday and dads all in the same week.  I never hesitate to remind my parents I am the best birthday present they have ever received :) 

As a disclaimer, I am not a professional makeup artist, esthetician or stylist.  What I wear is a reflection of what inspires me and what I feel confident in.  It won't be for everyone.  This blog is 100% my own personal opinions.  I can give recommendations and review products based on how they work for me and my skin type.  I will dig deeper into this topic in my next post.

Until next time....

Happy Holidays,

GR †
