GLAM Blog Club: Collect

I’m going to start by ignoring the fact I once said I’ll try and write something every month for GLAM Blog Club. It wasn’t a complete lie…I have tried. This theme, however, is a perfect opportunity to reveal and discuss a couple of my personal collections.

Here are the two main ‘things’ I would say I actively collect:
1. Vintage and Vintage-Style Clothing
2. American election campaign pins Continue reading “GLAM Blog Club: Collect”

GLAM Blog Club: Control

What an appropriate theme for GLAM Blog Club considering I am a control freak. In a good way of course. What can I say, I’m a true Virgo through and through. A big part of this comes from my desire to have things organised – I even colour code my wardrobe (yes, I have also catalogued the contents reassuring myself it was for insurance purposes and not for fun).

GLAM Blog Club: Happiness

New month, new GLAM Blog Club post! February went by so quickly I completely forgot to write something. To make up for it, I’m going to try and publish this blog as early in the month as possible. The theme for March is Happiness – i.e. what makes you happy? This is a huge theme to cover and consider, so I’m going to just focus on one moment where I felt nothing but happiness. Otherwise, we would be here all day. I say this because even on my bad days, I feel extremely grateful and happy to be working in an industry that is also something I’m passionate about.

GLAM Blog Club: What I Learned in 2017 & What I Want to Learn in 2018…

Welcome to my first blog post of 2018! I am hoping that this will be an excellent year filled with new adventures and lots of learning. The theme provided by GLAM Blog Club, what I learned in 2017 and what I want to learn in 2018, allows for both reflection and the opportunity to write down some goals. It is now time to momentarily cast mindfulness aside and obsess over the past and ponder the future. Continue reading “GLAM Blog Club: What I Learned in 2017 & What I Want to Learn in 2018…”

GLAM Blog Club: How I Ended Up Here

It has been way too long since I’ve written a post for GLAM Blog Club. This month, the theme is How I Ended Up Here. Not only does this allow for some great feelings of nostalgia, but also, time to reflect on my journey. It’s so easy to get caught up in the present or dread/fear/anticipate the future. How often do you take the time to sit down and really just remember where you started and how far you’ve come? I’m hoping that by writing this blog post, I can take the time to feel proud of what I’ve accomplished. I also hope that if you’re reading this post, you can also take some time out of your day to do the same. Continue reading “GLAM Blog Club: How I Ended Up Here”

GLAM Blog Club: Trust

This month’s topic for GLAM Blog Club is the theme of Trust. Enjoy reading my insight into both trusting other tour guides and being a tour guide myself! 

My post begins in Las Vegas, 2014. My friend and I made the decision to go on a “Las Vegas Lights Night Tour” of the city. It was a fun tour filled with anecdotal stories, suggestions on places to visit post-tour, and a little bit of history. Throughout the night I remember thinking the guide was passionate and obviously knew their city. Jump to the end of the tour. We decided to check out some of their suggestions only to find that the information they provided was either wrong or out of date. Automatically I started to question everything they said and just like that, my trust in them vanished. Continue reading “GLAM Blog Club: Trust”
