Today is the day.
This blog has been something that I've been meaning to start for a long time.. Now, I know what you're thinking. Here is another white girl, sipping a latte writing about her life like some sort of wanna be Mindy Lahiri. Though you may be partially correct, the greater purpose of this blog isn't to simply rant and rave about the latest scent of Yankee candle. to hit the market. And this isn't the same 'meaning to start' a blog like - "I should really try yoga." or "I could so make that throw pillow if I had time. (and knew how to sew)". Lord knows I can't do either of those things...
No, this is the culmination of my thoughts, ideals, inspirations, and expression finally translated & brought to life..
And damn - it feels pretty amazing. If I had my own theme music that could play right now- it would be something Desinty's Child, circa 2000.
Cliche perhaps, but today I am thankful. Looking around - I've realized how much has changed in only a few short months. My surroundings, my life, me. If this is what being a grownup looks like - I will do everything in my power to keep it moving in this direction.
New apartment, new car, new job, new goals, new newness. I want to try everything. I want to travel. I want to learn. I want to grown. I want to listen. I want to make my own money. I want to help people.. I want to learn to cook something other than protein pancakes and cereal (maybe). I want to do a lot of things. But I don't want to lose myself.
Thus, grownupgliter is born. Join me as I work to conquer the world (business & personal) without sacrificing that inner 'sparkle' that makes me-me. Who says you can't be a hard working, young, kick ass professional who enjoys glitter nail polish, everything coffee flavored, and a healthy dose of sarcastic banter? Just because an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians is on in the background as you write your last urgent email of the day, doesn't make you any less successful, it makes you well-rounded.
This is grownupglitter. Adulthood, you're looking sassier than ever.
