The Recap: GBL Grand Opening

One thing I can say about my family is that we are full of creative women, whether it’s arts &crafts, entrepreneurship, beauty and the list goes on. So when my cousins decided to open their OWN salon and beauty space, I had to support. My cousins Ashley &Tina both came together and put their passions of wellness, glam, and beauty together to make GlamourBeautyLounge! I’m so proud of them and inspired to continue on my own journey of creative success! GBL1gbl21.jpgGBL1gbl1.png

Rest, Recharge

I visited Riveria Maya, Mexico from November 30th-December 4th, and it was amazing!  The service we received from the Resort, Travel agent, Excursion agents were all top notch as well! Completely pleased!

Birthday set-up by Hotel!

 

My friends and I stayed at the Royalton Resort which is an all-inclusive resort which made things so relaxing because you didn’t have to worry about spending any money unless you wanted too. My roommate and I (My cousin Aleshia) had a double bedroom with a full-sized Tub in the room with a double head shower and balcony. The room was beautiful.

Everything at the Royalton was great, we had a few issues with our room but they handled it very well and ended upgrading my friend’s room to a rooftop room! Which was so beautiful at night! Our travel agent was amazing in all the surprises she pulled out with my cake and the whole restaurant sang Happy Birthday! What a great way to spend my 30th year of life. Thank you to my amazing friends, Mom and Travel agent for making all my dreams a reality!
