So last night was the Victoria Secrets Fashion Show and I must admit it was nice! I mean I’m guessing because I didn’t watch it. (Yeah) Although my dream didn’t really include being an angel I still gave it a shot! (tweet above) I would be mesmerized with the glitz and glam, of being in the room with the top models from around the globe then I would politely turn it down in person while live streaming it backstage so everyone could see how it all went down. Imagine me screaming "I don’t wanna be an Angel!” Here’s why:
The top photo is FRAN's 180 day recovery and the bottom photos is FRAN's 90 recovery photo.
Who's Fran? Fran is my face I gave my face a name because Fran is not really me. My name matches my face but it wasn't quite matching the character traits that Fran was giving me like acne, hyperpigmentation and pores so we call my skin Fran. Fran can also be an acronym for what I used say to my face on a regular basis: 'Foreal?, REALLY?!, ALRIGHT NOW!?'

It's funny how everything in life can be going so right and all of sudden it hits a left turn. I wish I could say that I enjoyed my right better than God's left but I don't. God's goods will always be better than my best and I am thankful. I know the thought in a lot of my peers head was why leave, why now? I was a year away from my degree from my dream school, I finally found friends, a church home and somewhat of a support system but God had greater plans. It started with a phone call with my sister-friend Tae. Then a prayer session with my sister-friend Kianna and after a long summer July 3rd, 2016 I strapped all of my belongings on my brother's pickup truck to head home to something much bigger than myself.
Who am I? That's a secret I'll never tell. No, I'm not gossip girl but, I am a child of the most high. Cheesy, right? but it's true I am a child of God. It took a long time for me to know that I get it, it's cliche and overdone by many. Plenty over promising perfection when only one can truly be perfect but I will say the strides to be more like the one that is, is hard! Like anything worth having you have to work for it. So I started a blog a year ago to share that journey with you. What once was just a simple instagram gallery has blossomed into a full on blog. With a bigger audience meant more words and with more words I needed more space to say what I wanted to say. So here we are Saint Glow Blog 2.0. I still blog on instagram but more gallery style with a minimalist vibe to it.
