Recap- A Glam 5 Years Anniversary Party
On Monday March 30th some of my family and closest friends gathered to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of M3GLAM. It has been a wonderful journey and it was only right to finally shed light on the growth and accomplishments of a site dedicated to connecting women, sharing beauty reviews and insider industry news. The Delancey in the Lower East Side set the perfect tone for a night of cocktails, yummy appetizers and great company. I knew everyone in the room personally but not everyone knew each other. That made it special to me. I was able to help foster new relationships. That is what M3 GLAM is all about; connecting people to get together and do amazing things.
The beauty aspect is what I am really good at and so it adds a personal touch to the site. Sharing my beauty blunders and finds. Although a higher percentage of women log on to the site, men often get a glimpse of our beauty regimens and are quite flabbergasted at our routines. Appreciating more when we look fabulous and the time we take to look flawless.
An anniversary party was long overdue as I been resistant thinking I did not “do enough” It was insecurities of my own. But the wait was so worth it. Everything turned out perfect and the people who have been there throughout the years made it all the more personal. Blogger Besties Jazz and Michelle I was afforded to have met at blogger events in the past and we have remained in contact ever since. People like Ayanna have supported the efforts of M3GLAM since forever and it is relationships like those that keep you going. Then there are others like Jessica founder of Hell Notes For Beauty who I connected with via social media and met in person the day of my event. She was such an asset. People like her one in a million. It’s incredible the things that come from working together toward a common goal.
Aleah of Haviic Cosmetics and Aja of Her Nails Rock are people I have worked with in the past and are women dominating in their fields. We have to include each other in our accomplishments because they help us all. Guest received complimentary mini makeovers and manicures which they shared on social media.

I shared a few words with everyone sharing how grateful I was for everyone in attendance and to explain how their support keeps me going. Often people do not see the hard work that goes into making things happen. But gestures as simple as a comment on a Instagram post or a text saying, “hey I need your suggestion on a new beauty regimen.” Those things all make it worth it. M3 GLAM was founded on March 3. One reason founded in March is because it’s Women’s History Month. So my celebration of another year will alway revolve around celebrating women too.
Decor included flowers from Flower of Life Studio
I appreciate everyone who made this possible and who came out to celebrate with me. It was a perfect night with the people who matter most. Cheers to another 5 years!!!!
