See what I did there. Put two words together and BAM!– I’ve made a new word. Glamorspiration: glamorous inspiration.
I’m feeling yucky like a turd, guys. Recently I had a nasty allergic reaction to a mysterious agent that managed to grace my face this past week. Not hot and definitely NOT chic. Sadly, instead of my mod makeup tutorial I had planned I’ve had to look for beautiful things for you to stare at in it’s place. So what do you do when your eye bags look like fucking hamburger meat?? You find your dose of chicness elsewhere and I’m coming to you this week with a few of my tried and true sources for glamorspiration.

Bitch be FIERCE! The hair, the costumes, the dick wiggling– it’s an all inclusive package. Now that you’ve got your jam on, it’s time to get all dolled up with a little help from one of my favorite androgynous creatures, Sebastian Simon, and her disco diva barbie hair tutorial. Gettin’ ready for da club with a fabulous weave! (AAAhHHH! She and I use the same hairspray!!)
After your ‘do is did, it’s on to mmmaaakkkeeeuuuppp! (Feel free to switch these steps if you’re a messy bitch like me and get shit in your hair.) Adding a dash of Lebanese chicness in honor of the Beirut beauties, here comes a Haifa Wehbe Makeup Tutorial from my absolute, all-time favorite makeup artists, Nic & Sam, from the YouTube channel Pixiwoo.
Now you’ve got your makeup done, your hair coiffed, twerking to your new fav beat– time to throw on your most bombastic outfit and head for a glamorous night out where you drink to the point of alcohol poisoning or take illicit drugs and then stumble home in a zombie stupor. Hey, at least you looked hella fabulous doing it, right?
Having a baby is rough, like rougher than that one time in college you got so drunk you passed out in a hallway at a stranger’s house and woke up with dried barf on yourself rough. Imagine that. Imagine squeezing a watermelon out of a lemon-sized opening, then let’s talk.

How fast does time fly when I’m reading a stinking urine-soaked plastic device that tells me I’ve got one in the oven to 7 weeks till blast off?? I don’t know and it’s scary as fuck and confusing as fuck and people are freaking me out because they keep asking who’s coming to help us when she’s born. Resounding answer: NO ONE REALLY.

I’m SO happy to report that almost all of the misery of the first trimester has finally fallen behind me. My energy is back and with no nausea, I’m feeling myself again….just pregnant-er.
It’s a girl! She’s really teeny and moves a lot and likes to kick me which I hope is not a sign that she’s going to be a huge asshole baby- I can say that, it&rsquo... [more]

As evident by the title, there is human life stirring within my bowels. Imagine that. Now try and sleep.
