I am not an official member of the Glam Network, although I have a tremendous amount of respect for their role in the beauty and fashion blogosphere.

Some of the warmest, most welcoming beauty and fashion bloggers are members of the Glam Network, and even though I’m not an official member of their ranks, many of these women went out of their way to be receptive to a little ol’ newbie with a litany of questions when I first started this thing called Afrobella.

Now, Glam is preparing to give out awards to the best beauty, fashion, and gossip blogs on their network (They’re called the Glammies. So cute. Hee!). (** edited at 8:03 p.m. : So apparently, the Glammies are the Glamour Magazine annual beauty and fashion awards, and the Glammys are fabulous drag queen awards. Speaking of queens, does anyone know of a fun drag queen blog about makeup or fashion? You know they’d have the best makeup tips! Gotta love the queens!)
So if you have a moment, vote for them!

Some of these fabulous sites are nominated for awards, and others are just plain fabulous. Check them out and expand your beauty horizons.

    In other news, those of you who wanted to see a more recent pic of me should check out the About Afrobella link. For those of you who wanted to see those highlights I mentioned, here’s another pic.

    I have cropped out all but the husband’s hand so that you may fully behold my subtle, copper highlighted glory. Kidding! But chicken comment aside (which apparently he now denies. I heard what I heard, dude!), I must say the stylist did a damn good job.

    Awww, thanks for the shout out Bella! And girl, I am so jealous of your hair too! I spent the weekend braiding mine (small individuals) because keeping up with the two-strand twist is not for me!
