A {Vlog} for Bethany

June 4th, 2012 § 11 comments

Today I’d like to share something different: My very first vlog!

This video is dedicated to the lovely Bethany of Rinse. Repeat., who is moving all the way to Kuwait today to start a brand new adventure. A few months ago, me, Bethany and Jen {of Punky and the City} accidentally formed a little group called the #GlamGang on Twitter.  What began as a joke quickly became more serious: a few new friends joined together with the simple goal of supporting one another in all our endeavors – even though we haven’t actually met in real life yet!

After meeting so many amazing people like these gals through blogging, suddenly Match.com makes a whole lot more sense… !  Sometimes your new best friend just happens to live a few states or countries away – but it doesn’t mean you have anything less in common. It just means you were that much luckier to find one another.  {If you’re with me on this – don’t forget to join up with the #GlamGang! Just use this hashtag regularly and put a lot of love and silliness out into the world. That’s what we’re all about!}

So… here’s to Bethany!!!  Be sure to visit her blog and Jen’s blog as well – they both have some of the most beautiful, thoughtful, and honest posts around.  I am so happy to call them friends.


xxx loves!

    Oh my GOSH. Where do I even start?

    I totally got teary (again, after watching Jen’s video) while watching this! It is so crazy, strange and amazing that all three of us collided on Twitter during this incredible, changing period of our lives! I absolutely love knowing you girls and cannot wait to see you and Jen take off for new places, too!

    You hit it right on the head when you said that blogging is the best thing you’ve ever tried. I feel the same! 🙂 The ability to connect with others I might never have met otherwise astounds me.

    Gosh. I just feel so loved and blessed. Thank you times a billion for your sweet words + video…and for being such a great friend! 🙂

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’m going to be smiling all day! You and Jen are my faves. 🙂

    Ok. Um. First of all. You freaking rocked it out with the v-logging. I mean you had like those labels on the screen going and everything… HOW DID YOU DO THAT? You are milessss ahead of me on all of that. so. im.pres.sed.

    Secondly, wow. You really did such a beautiful job describing how our blessed tribe of glam gang-ness came to be. Like really. You made me cry. Thank you so much for doing this with me for our friend and really putting your heart into it. I am in awe of you and your sincerity. Honestly, I am truly touched!

    So thankful to have met you girls via the magical world of blogging and I cannot wait to share all our adventures with one another.

    Glam Gang ain’t no fluff piece! It’s a real deal. Filled with love and support.


  • Aww, so sweet! Good luck to all of you in your upcoming adventures!

    Thank you Jen for introducing me to two great blogs (now added to my Bloglovin’ feed!)

    and i absolutely love how you sound – you definitely sound as sweet as you look! i really hope to see more videos from you too. you’re totally cut out for this! 😀

    • Steph Jiang says:

      oh, but i can definitely understand how beginning a new phase of your life in a foreign land feels like – i’m moving to LA some time later this month, and the anticipation is just… so much!!

  • Theresa says:

    This is so incredibly sweet Alexandra. I love it! I agree that it’s so amazing that you can stumble upon so many awesome people through blogging that you would probably have never met in your everyday life. 🙂 Great job on your first vlog sweetie. Excited to hear about your new adventures once you make the move. 🙂

  • so so sweet, great to hear you and wishing all the luck to Bethany in her next adventure!

  • Another great blog to follow! Love it. Thanks for stopping by and commenting and my blog. You’re the sweetest. 🙂

  • Shybiker says:

    How wonderful that you’ve made good friends. I’m so happy for you. And your vlog is a big success. It is so nice to hear your voice.

  • Renee Wuerch says:

    Moms are often proud of their children and some people assume you are just because they are yours….but I am so proud and excited when I see and hear that other people appreciate and enjoy my kids for what they really are…really awesome people!

    Your vlogs were the perfect send off gift for her! Its hard to know what to do for her from a distance…so I guess I will continue to do what I have done for her when she’s been near…pray for her and be her cheerleader!

    Btw…Friday June 8th is her birthday and I hope she won”t sleep thru the entire day due to jet lag! It will be her first full day in Kuwait!

    I stumbled on your blog thru her comment section…yes I’m a stalker! hehe And it was truly a delight to see her big beautiful smile pop up when I clicked on your blog!

    Thanks again for making my little girl smile!
