How Did We Get Here

Welcome to Glitter & Growth! My name is Gabrielle High and I am a dream chaser. I decided to start Glitter and Growth for a few reasons. I wanted to carve out a section of the world that was just for me that represents Gabrielle.

What Is Glitter & Growth?

Glitter represents the GLITZ & GLAM of life. I love makeup, shoes and and handbags. I am obsessed with lipstick. I own over 25 shades but you can catch me in a smooth 3. My bathroom counter is scary with products and don’t bother looking in my closet. I love Kate Spade handbags and my Prada glasses. You should stop reading my blog now if you can fully walk into Target to buy toothpaste and leave with just toothpaste. We cannot be friends. Because…how? I can go on and on about the Glitter of life. 

Growth starts with the SPARKLE that God puts on my life. I attend church regularly and I take my walk with God seriously. I often take notes in church and reflect on them trying to figure out how to apply the message and making sure I understand the scripture. Growth is very much my adulting. I am a graduate student at Wayne State University studying Sports Administration and in my last year and ripping the runway stage December 2017.

How Did We Get Here?

This is my judgement free garden for improvement. I want to be transparent as possible. I will be posting every Friday and adding in more posts as life happens. Honestly, it’s all scary. I am going to be 30 in July and I don’t have it together. I don’t want to pretend to have it together. It’s OK to be in your late twenties single and not exactly in your dream job. What is not OK is doing nothing. My first step in all of this was my vision board. Don’t worry, I will explain the vision board and how important it is in an upcoming post. On my vision board I have a clipping that says, “When you are dedicated to your craft, everybody sees it.” I decided to dedicate myself to my craft. What is my craft? Gabrielle. I am focusing on my growth: spiritually, mentally and physically. Glitter & Growth was born at that moment. 

The lotus flower featured in the logo is known for floating above muddy waters and blossoming beautifully unbothered. Full Circle, right? See what I did there? My goal for Glitter & Growth is to help you leave some glitter where ever you go and increase your own sparkle. 

Cool Story, Bro…
