“There’s a first time for everything, except the things you’ll never do.” – So here goes..
Not sure how to start this blog but maybe I can start with some background and a few pre cursors! My grammar isn’t the best, ask ANY of my friends I struggle with speaking let alone writing. And by that I mean words escape me, I mumble, I forget a train of thought in the middle of a story, and the list goes on and on! Lol, happen to anyone else? I will probably type with a lot of exclamations because I love them. Even though In real life I doubt I have that much excitement. Well now that is out of the way let’s start my intro.
Hi! My name is Marissa! I am Chamorro and Irish, 27 years old, born and raised in Sacramento, CA. I’m an only child, my father passed away when I was 14, and I don’t think I ever fully realized the impact it’s had on my life and relationships. I have a huge family and am lucky enough to have both sets of grandparents and a great grandma! They are very involved and supportive in every way. Culture and family traditions are a big thing for me. I struggle with issues just like all of us and I’m not afraid to talk about them. I struggle with anxiety, weight, and emotional issues. I have been to counseling and use different techniques to stay positive, and grounded! I also am starting a new health and fitness regimne this month, which I plan to share as long as I make it through!
I’m a new mom to my beautiful one year old daughter, Sarai Amaya, and to a 4 month old Husky Pup Nova! I believe in God, and the power of positivity and manifestation. I love all things beauty and food. I’m an Esthetician, worked as a freelance makeup artist and for BareMinerals for many years. Being creative through cosmetics is my passion but I’m still trying to figure out the best outlet for me.
The one of many reasons I wanted to start a blog is to try out this creative outlet, to connect and to share. My goal is to always learn and grow from every experience and I’m ready to jump out of my comfort zone and into a new pond. I recently have gone through some major life changes as in becoming a mom, job change, out of a long relationship, learning to co parent, amongst many other things. I want to share my experiences in hopes to help inspire someone out there in some small way and to document this time in my life! So bear with me and join me in my not so glamourriss life!
P.S. I know this intro has A-LOT jammed in. Don’t worry I’ll be breaking down subjects in future posts! But if you have questions you would love to see answered answer them in an upcoming post.
