Welcome to The Sometimes Glam Wife! I am so glad that you’re here. If you’re new here (even if you’re not), you’ve landed on the right page! I know that there are a billion different blogs out there, and I’m so thankful that you’ve chosen to come here and spend some time with me.
About The Blog
I began The Sometimes Glam Wife shortly after giving birth to my son, Grayson, in August of 2015. What started as a small idea about showcasing realistic beauty tips and tricks for the busy mother has blossomed into so much more. TSGW is now a hub not only for beauty tips but recipes that will fuel and satisfy your family (and your budget), plus sized style and fashion, and my experiences as I navigate through marriage and parenting.
About The Wife
My name is Brandi Amabisca, and I am a Wife, Mother, Professional Makeup Artist, and Blogger! I am a lover of all things beauty, making home cooked food, and travel. I enjoy living a moderately healthy lifestyle, with a few cheats thrown in. Some would describe me as one of those crunchy moms, but I know that’s not everyone’s thing. My days are spent knee-deep in toys, playing “choo choo”, and chugging caffeinated beverages until bedtime. I met my husband, Jacob, in 2007 and from there we began a loooong (7 year) on and off long distance relationship. In 2014, I finally packed my entire life into three suitcases and five flat-rate shipping boxes and moved across the country from Nashville, Tennessee to Fresno, California. In December of 2014, we found out that we were expecting our first child, and in February of 2015, we got married. We welcomed our first son, Grayson, in August of 2015. Since then, we have lived in California, Washington State, and now Tennessee. We actually drove from Seattle, Washington to Nashville, Tennessee…with a three month old–in the dead of Winter. That was loads of fun. Needless to say, the last two years have been a whirlwind.
Becoming a Wife and a Mother has been the most rewarding, exhausting, joyful, and terrifying experience of my entire life. The Stay-at-Home Mom life is hard, y’all. How are we supposed to balance Motherhood, marriage, friendships, work, and our own hobbies and interests without suffering a complete burnout? I live my life, every day, working towards finding the happiest medium. I do my best to be honest about our life and our struggles (because there are many). Some days I falter, but we all do. It won’t always be sunshine and rainbows, but it will be raw and authentic.
It’s totally possible to kick ass at this Wife and Mom thing while still being glamorous…sometimes.
I hope that through this blog we can connect, share stories, and get to know one another.
You can never have too many women in your tribe.
