Productivity: How to Squeeze More Time Out Of Your Afternoon

I’m sharing MiO in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™

I’ve been doing some deep digging into the analytics of Glass of Glam, and I think that I need to do a better job of helping you get to know me. After all, blogging is about connections and relationships, even from afar. I was shocked to find that my most visited page is my “About” page – which I haven’t updated in about a year – yikes! That tells me something – that you want to know about the girl behind the glam. I can do that for you.

My New Glasses

I got some cute new frames! You won’t even believe how inexpensive they were!

I have been wearing glasses since about 3rd grade. I remember that I was doing the wrong math problems for homework because I wrote them down incorrectly in my planner. After getting a poor grade in math that year (I’m still mad about that) my mom though that I should probably get my eyes checked. Ever since then I’ve had glasses and contacts. Can’t see a darn thing without them!

Five Ways To Keep Your Jewelry Safe While Traveling

Summer travel is one of my favorite things to do, and I have a lot of it coming up! But a horror story plays out in my mind. I’m in Bora Bora staying in a gorgeous little floating hut. My husband throws me in the water while I’m wearing my huge $175,000 diamond earrings and one falls off and I burst into tears knowing my earrings now belong to the fishes. Just kidding – that wasn’t me, it was Kim Kardashian, but it could happen to any of us.

My point is that traveling with valuable things like my iPad, computer, and jewelry is always risky for fear of it being broken or stolen. But how can a girl like me (or KimK for that matter) travel without her beloved accessories? Just because I’m in a different state/country doesn’t mean I can’t be my stylish self. So through my travels, I’ve figured out ways to keep my jewelry safe and intact.

Weekly Refreshment: Challenge Your Views

Yesterday I mentioned that the weekend was draining. As most of you know, I live in DC, the epicenter of everything that was going on last weekend.

As I live within walking distance of the events, staying at home and hiding felt like a non-option. So on Friday, I attended the inauguration parade on Saturday the Women’s March.

That’s right, I went to BOTH. And I’ll tell you why.

Butler’s Orchard and Rocklands Farm & Winery

I never thought that when I moved to D.C. I would have the opportunity to meet so many fantastic women! I got really lucky that I started this blog and found some of my best friends on Instagram. Life is weird!

We pitched in for a party bus to go pumpkin picking at Butler’s Orchard, followed by wine tasting and farm-animal viewing at Rocklands Farm and Winery. Because we were all just pining for a really basic fall day. And it was perfect.

Weekly Refreshment: Moving and Grooving

Moving is always way crazier than I think it is going to be. Reserving elevators, having boxes for random things, sequestering cats so they don’t run out the door. There are a lot of things to think about.
