Let The Street Be My Runway Tonight

“I was a model.  There was a red carpet runway.  There was a photographer and a videographer.  A stylist did my hair; a makeup artist did my makeup.  People came to watch.  And passers-by stopped to watch me pummel the runway.” That’s the basic version of how I spent Friday, August 15, 2014. Let me […]

Always Darkest Before Dawn

I WORK NOW. I got a job. (Wow.  Way to begin the awkward “sorry I’ve been MIA for like 2 months” blog post THAT I ALWAYS SAID I WOULD NEVER DO). If you follow me on social media, or you know me in real life—this isn’t hot-off-the-press news.  I’ve been sitting on this for awhile.  […]

Let ‘Em Pop, Bro.

Last month, when the separation was fresh and raw, and I wasn’t really sure what the fate of Glitter & Bruises would be…I made a promise. I promised that I would post a humiliating picture of myself when I reached 500 fans on Facebook. I hadn’t even hit the 400 mark yet.  So like, I […]

If You’re True To Yourself, Everything Will Fall Into Place

I’m not sure what’s up with the cosmos, but if you dig into my career history, you’ll notice a Professional Push pattern emerges during the month of February.  I’m a Cancerian, and I’m wondering if that has anything to do with planetary lineup in my career house at this time of year.  I don’t know […]

The Snowphia (A Hot Mess In A Dirty Dress)

Don’t throw a pity party for me or anything, but Valentine’s Day sort of just sneaked up on me this year.  Last night I had this paralyzing thought:  “OH SHIT, I HAVE NO ONE.  I AM GOING TO BE ALL ALONE ON VALENTINE’S DAY.  OMG.” So when I woke up this morning…to, um…about six more […]

Doilies And Plastic Covered Furniture

Check out the wallpaper behind me.  It’s so old, it’s actually kind of pimp.  I am blogging to you today–a quick little bloggity-blog update–live from my new (temporary) Command Central….my brother’s childhood bedroom.  My laptop sits on his old bureau sits on a table length doily that spans the length of his bureau. My butt […]

The Beginning

The idea of a memoir came before the blog.  I had trudged through half of 2013 with nothing fantastic to report.  But the cycle of gut-wrenching crises that put me (literally) flat on my back, in bed, paralyzed with a 2-3 day I-Can’t-Go-On depression…almost became comical.  Almost.  Every time I emerged from the depths of […]

Happy New Year, Like Ten Days Late.

The only good thing to happen to me in 2013 was the birth of this website, and even then—it only became a reality because of shitty circumstances that left me no choice but to walk out on my job the month before. When Christmas was over, I eased into Buffer Week…that seven day stretch where […]

That Christmas When No One Had A Job

A few things happened since 12/25 that delayed the publishing of my Christmas blog post.  Parenting.  Relaxing.  Surprise snowfall.  Enjoying time with family.  Tearing open new toys and putting them together.  Sleep, sleep, and more sleep.  Aaaaaaaand…disgust, anger, and depression.  Yeah. Chances are, when you casually admit to not feeling much in the way of […]
