Just a little note from your favorite Glamour Girl…
Happy One Year Anniversary Tooooooo Meeeeee!!! Wooo-Hooo! :) I SURVIVED, but oh, how my life has changed!
Today is a VERY important day for me… one year ago today, was the WORST day of my life, EVER – I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at 31!
In the past year I have reached at least 150 people with my message! Who knew? I started this venture as a way to vent my frustrations about being mislead by the beauty industry through deceptive labeling. I would have been happy getting the message across to two people. But, then again- I have never been one to just sit there and shut-up. I love hearing about how something I’ve suggested helps… it makes me feel like I’m not alone on this journey + gets me through the shitty days – so keep those comments + emails coming!
I NEVER thought I would be mostly Vegetarian, slinging back pints ORGANIC Green Juice instead of Shots of Jager! I left a 15 + year professional career because it wasn’t healthy for me. I started a blog as a Healthy Beauty Advocate. I made some new, unlikely friends (so what if they’re little old ladies at support groups? Don’t judge, ha-ha). I Gave up M.A.C. Makeup, Tanning, Partying + Expensive Bags + Shoes (none of it by choice) in exchange for Vitamins, Green Juice + a Healthy Lifestyle. I got real with myself- learned what’s important + what’s not, along with who is and who’s not. When you’re dealing with Cancer, you realize you can’t escape from it by Mani-Pedi’s, Shopping or a Wild Girl’s Night Out… you can’t escape your own body (which just so happens to be trying to kill you)! It’s true that you have no idea how strong you are until you have no choice!
Who am I? Ha ha.
THANK YOU to my family + friends… I love you so much! THANK YOU TO MY READERS – YOU KEEP ME GOING EVERYDAY! When I want to give up or I’m tempted to swing by the M.A.C. counter – I remember that I have blog to write! Please keep spreading my message. I truly believe this is what I was put here on this earth to do…
Told you, Cancer picked the WRONG Bitch! I’m still alive and kicking one year later Bitchessss! Mwah! xoxo ♥
