I started this blog for me! It was totally selfish ya’ll. I was a mother with no time to invest in herself. When my youngest started kindergarten this year, I was lost. For the first time in nearly 8 years I was sitting in an empty, quiet house with more free time than I was used to.
This time it was for me.
I was going to do something that I loved. I wanted to choose my hours, in my terms, a job that allowed me invest in my passions, but also give me the flexibility to spend time with my kids, to love on them and be present for them. So I began blogging.
At first, Glammed Events was a gallery of all of the parties that I was planning or styling. It was also a way for me to share different tutorials and projects that I crafted for clients. I was looking for a way to encourage moms to add glamour and beautiful details to their parties. I knew that with a little help, moms out there could also make glam parties for their kiddos and loved ones.
Somewhere along the way I began crafting amazing birthday candles for my customers.
I was pretty busy crafting candles and selling them on my Etsy shop. It was a success story and I was making money on the side…
but something was missing.
I wanted a little more and I am not talking money. I wasn’t looking to make more money or get rich (don’t get me wrong making more money is something that I did and do desire) but I needed to find that one thing, I needed to focus in on what I was passionate about. That’s what I was searching for this time around. Making money would follow.
I began blogging as a way to express myself, as a way to put all my passions into one place. Glammed Events has become an adventure. A journey of a mom, finding her place, finding her voice again. The Caribbean girl in me, living a Texan adventure -with a husband, two kids, a dog and a blog!!
