XOXO Glossip Girl

Glossip Girl, here. Your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Hollywood’s cosmetics elite.

I crack myself up! I couldn’t resist.. But for real. There’s been some DRAMA in the cosmetic industry lately. But I don’t want to talk about that just yet… let’s talk about some lip glosses! More specifically: Kylie Cosmetics lip kits and glosses.

Lately, I’ve been really into pinks. I can’t believe that sentence even left my mouth… But, since I’ve been makeup free on a daily basis, sometimes putting a full dramatic face on feels like too much. Even for me! Jeez. Who am I?!

New Beginnings

 

God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and a whole lot of faith… but it’s worth the wait.

First and foremost, I want to apologize for how negligent I’ve been. Things have been crazy in my personal life, putting my blog and YouTube on the back burner for awhile. With that being said, I have some big, big, BIG changes happening. It has taken a lot of planning, soul searching, and getting past my fears. TODAY I will be packing up my little car and moving across the country to San Diego, California!

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a hairstylist. And for the past year I’ve been living out that part of my dream working at St. Louis’ top salon with some of the best hairstylists in the business! But the second part of “the dream” was to be a hairstylist in California. I’m not sure what it was that has always drawn me there, but California seemed like the place to be. It’s a funny thing because I think I was 15 years old when I decided that’s where I wanted to end up and I had never actually been there! I can count on one hand, specifically two fingers, how many times I’ve visited and both times have been some of my most memorable vacations. Continue reading

Skincare 101: My Daily Routine

Daily Skincare Routine

Daily Skincare Routine by megcgad

Let’s talk skin! There are so many reasons our skincare is important to our daily routine. First and foremost, skin is the largest organ of the body. That’s right, not all your organs are internal! Did you know the average weight of your skin is 8 pounds? That’s a lot of organ to take care of, especially if we’re wearing it on the outside! And since we wear it on the outside, it takes quite the beating while protecting everything we hold internally. So, our skin should be treated with care and respect. Continue reading

Happy Valentine’s Day!

First of all.. Welcome to my new and improved blog! I took a few months off, but that doesn’t mean I was just lounging around. I was working my little tail off to make a lot of improvements to Gadden Rose. I hope you like them!

Secondly, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Or Singles’ Awareness Day, OR Gal-entine’s Day (as Meero Mani Nails, informed me), whichever you are celebrating. In the spirit of things, I pulled inspiration from Kylie Jenner to create this fun, glittery Valentine’s Day look for you all! I hope you enjoy!

The Video on Fire

If any of you are as nerdy as I am, you went to see Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 1 at midnight!

Not only am I a huge fan of the book and movie series, it holds sentimental value to me. When the first trailer released for Catching Fire I was automatically drawn to Katniss’s makeup look when entering the Capitol for the second time.

I sat down in my living room behind my camera and filmed it, just for fun. It was my fourth YouTube tutorial and I was only expecting the 100 or so views I had been getting, up until this point. Boy did I wake up to the coolest surprise…. Continue reading
