It took a lot of contemplation and thinking to get to this point- A LOT. I love blogging and have had numerous blogs throughout the years. Blogging was always my companion throughout whatever career I chose to pursue (a creative outlet so to speak). I had a food blog (OMG Yum!) when I had my own photography business. I knew that blogging about food wasn’t the only thing I wanted to write about but at the time it was a nice compliment to everything else I was doing. After I closed my business, blogging solely about food became boring to me. That is when I launched ANNAdventure – a place to write about food, lifestyle, DIY and travel. But then, as it seems to be the trend, it got stale. Developing new recipes just seemed to be too much. My inspiration had gone and I began to hate working from home – I NEEDED social interaction so I went back to work. Glam Rock Girl was something that I had in the back of my mind for a few years. I didn’t know what it was meant to be and I am pretty sure I am still ironing out the details. One thing I do know is this: we are all unique and some, more than others, have been squashed down into “normalcy” by society (I’ve been here too). Our truest authentic self gets squashed down by the belief that you shouldn’t try too hard to be different. Don’t stand out, don’t do this, walk the safest most stable path… blah, blah, bull you know what. It is those who are different and step out of the mold who find happiness and succeed. So why not you and me? I am carving out my own little corner of the internet to be “me” and be different.
Glam Rock Girl is how I define my style: a little bit of rock, a touch of glam and girl because I still feel really young and vibrant in my 30s. This is a space is also here to inspire you to become your most authentic self – and for you, that will look different than me. You might be all rock, or all glam, or trendy, edgy, spunky, funky, etc.
So in my own journey to find my own most authentic self, I want to inspire you to start your own journey. Do some soul searching and find out what makes you, you. Did you like a certain accessory but were afraid to buy it because it was too loud? Did you want to paint your nails black but were afraid because you didn’t want others to judge you? Did you want to start your own YouTube channel on inspiration and messages would help others but didn’t out of fear? Whatever it is, you should let yourself shine. Don’t be afraid, haters are gonna hate – but they are only gonna hate because they are too afraid to pursue their own dreams so they feel the need to squash yours.
Aside from that, you can expect to see photos of my personal style, fitness goals and progression, personal thoughts on many things and perhaps even a few recipes! Pretty much all the things that I consider to make me a glam rock girl.
Thank you so much for following. I look forward to learning about how you’re becoming your most inner authentic self.
