Wig Review! Kamo Wig from Amazon



Hey everyone! I made my first "review video" for my YouTube channel!!! It's all about a wig I have been wearing a lot lately that I purchased from Amazon. As you may know, I own and wear a lot of wigs. I've been meaning to make reviews for them so I'm really excited to finally share this with you!

The Kamo 26" Layered Wig was purchased from Amazon by ME! I was not paid or asked to make this review. I was looking for a natural wig to wear on my Twitch streams and came across it on Amazon. It had decent reviews and for only $16.99 I figured it was worth the try. Turns out it's one of my all time favorite wigs now! I loved it so much I bought two - one to leave long and another to trim a little shorter. I've been wearing it a lot lately and it looks and feels very natural. Please check out my video for more details and a better look at it! This wig would be great for cosplayers or anyone that is on a budget and looking for a nice blonde wig.

Glitzy's Gamer Spotlight #5



What is your name?
Vulkaane

When did you start playing Guild Wars 2?
Or how long have you been playing?
I started playing in August 2013

What made you want to try the game?
A few of my friends and I were looking into new MMOS to play and we had some recommendations on trying out Guild Wars 2.

What's your favorite profession to play and why?
Elementalist because it's different than what most people are used to. The different type of play style really caught my attention and I love every minute of it.

When you log into the game what is the first thing you like to do?
I always usually check out the Gem Store first. Love seeing what new things Arena Net has added to the game. Then I usually go to my guild hall and hang out with a few guildies at the Guild Hall bar and talk about what world boss we will kill first. :P

Have you bought Heart of Thorns? If so, what is your impression of the new maps and events?
If you have not bought it explain why and if you plan to.
I have bought Heart of Thorns. Honestly I love it. The New Profession is really fun, the maps are HUGE and I really love gliding around everywhere. I also like how the events are more immersive in Heart of Thorns.

What goals have you set for yourself in game?
First goal is to finish map completion on my Revenant.
Second goal is to make Nevermore and Astralaria.

If you are in a guild you'd like to promote please tell us about it!
If you are not in one, what are you looking for in a guild?
My Guild is Apocalyptic Armageddon(AARM) on Tarnished Coast Server. We are 5 guilds on a single server and we participate in every aspect of GW2 (PvE,PvP,WvW etc.).

Any updates or fixes you wish ANet would work on?
I would like to see Super Adventure Box return to GW2 and maybe even Dragon Bash.


If you could visit IRL one of the cities of Tyria which one would you pick and why?
I would say Lion's Arch because all the trading that goes along in there. Lion's Arch has a lot of different aspects that most cities would not have. And let's face it, a giant wedding ceremony spot on a big rock is pretty awesome :)

Staying Positive


So what's up! What's been going on! Well I've been trying out some new things recently that haven't gone exactly as planned. So let's chat about it!

First up, I applied for a Twitch Partnership. This means I could have a "subscribe" button on my page and make a little bit of money while also being able to give more back to my viewers! This is the second time I applied and once again I was declined. Twitch didn't tell me exactly what I need to work on, but they did say to apply again in about 2-4 weeks if I feel passionate about it. So I decided instead of accepting this as a defeat (which I admit I kind of did the first time) that I will keep my momentum going and push even harder and try to apply again. I mentioned this on stream a few days ago. Everyone was very supportive and kind!! I think if we can just keep doing what we're doing maybe the stars will align.

Another thing I applied for was an ArenaNet Partnership. They offer a sponsorship program now for creators and since that's basically the only game I live and breathe for I figured it'd be a perfect fit for me. Well unfortunately they never replied or accepted me. I applied for this several weeks ago and still haven't heard back. I suppose I will try again because I feel like I'd be a great match for them. It's just hard when no one tells you what you are doing wrong! I see others that are about the same size/level as my site and channel with sponsorships. Maybe I'm just not active enough? Well I also won't let this bring me down. I gotta use the passion I have to propel forward and apply again!

Finally, I applied for a job in real life that's totally different from what I'm used to. It's a position I know I would excel at and in a field I'd love to grow in. I won't go into the details, but long story short all last year I applied for several different jobs (both in and out of the hair industry) and nothing seemed to click. So when this job popped up nearby I was very excited to apply! However, once again I haven't received a reply. I believe in myself and that I'm totally qualified for all that I'm seeking. So I just need to learn how to be more patient. Things don't happen overnight and doors don't magically open for you. Sometimes you gotta prove to the world what you are capable of.

Last year, I let little things bring me down pretty quickly. There were other battles I haven't mentioned, too. I'm trying my best to keep a positive outlook and change the direction of my feelings after facing a setback. It's a little unlike me to post or talk about these kind of things because I do try very hard to have a good attitude on social media. my blog, and now my stream. But you know what? Shit happens sometimes! Thank you Forest Gump for teaching me that. It's how you react to it that defines you. So I'm staying upbeat and looking forward to whatever comes my way.

Xoxo,

Glitzy's Gamer Spotlight #4



What is your name?
Archon. Archonbrood on twitch. My main character is Juneko.

When did you start playing Guild Wars 2?
Or how long have you been playing?
Since beta. Pretty much haven't stopped, though sometimes i play it more casually.

What made you want to try the game?
Been playing GW1 since it was beta, so i was waiting for it since it was announced.

What's your favorite profession to play and why?
I love my Thief. I think party i really like the character i made, which is a bit of a story itself, as well as the high risk thief gameplay.

When you log into the game what is the first thing you like to do?
Look for my girl, Bell <3 .="" a="" br="" brown="" currently="" do="" dye="" farming="" flax="" for="" like="" make="" mats="" or="" pigment="" potatoes="" run="" salvage="" scribing.="" to="" usually="">Have you bought Heart of Thorns? If so, what is your impression of the new maps and events?
If you have not bought it explain why and if you plan to.
Yes. I generally like the new events and meta's. But i think they go on for too long sometimes. Also, tangled depths is a real pain to navigate.

What goals have you set for yourself in game?
Considering making another legendary. Need to map complete my revenant at some point and finish story on him.

If you are in a guild you'd like to promote please tell us about it!
If you are not in one, what are you looking for in a guild?
Currently in the lunar wolves [WPAK]. 490+ members, pretty active, but kind of quiet atm due to not a whole lot of new content atm.

Any updates or fixes you wish ANet would work on?
Finish the rest of the new legendaries, including the back piece. remove all the bugged and fail events needed for their collections. some of the new adventures really need some tweaking, as do the new zones, it would be nice if they were more casual friendly. skill balance could use some work, it would be nice if all classes were viable in raids, pvp, etc.


If you could visit IRL one of the cities of Tyria which one would you pick and why?
LA probably, i like the coast. Although i wouldnt mind wandering around rata sum and pushing random buttons :D

My Top 5 Fictional Valentines

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and as a single gal I couldn't help but daydream about who my favorite fictional Valentine would be! It's no surprise that most of these are characters in shows I'm currently hooked on! 

Barry Allen aka The Flash

In the show Barry has taken a few lucky girls on some interesting dates from bowling, to coffee, to lavish dinners. I imagine Barry would be fun to spend an evening with just chatting and laughing. He's laid back and smart and let's not forget a super hero! :P

Jace Wayland

I'm going to save my opinion of the new Shadowhunters show for another post. (It's not the best.) So let's focus on Jace the character! Sure he may be a little self-absorbed at times but you can guarantee your date with him wouldn't be boring. I actually like how in the show he is portrayed as very caring and protective. And he's not bad to look at either! ;)

Poe Dameron

After I saw The Force Awakens I had trouble choosing a favorite character because they were all fantastic. Poe stood out to me the most, however, with his charm, strength and overall positive attitude. I'd love to go on a date with him because I am sure he'd be a gentleman with lots of cool stories!

James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser

If Jamie Fraser from Outlander is NOT on your fictional Valentine list then you are missing out! He has got to be one of the most romantic and thoughtful characters I've experienced in a book and show. He would quite literally risk his life for you so just imagine how great of a Valentine he'd be!

Augustus Waters

He may not have super human strength or be able to fly an X-wing, but Augustus from The Fault in Our Stars has a magic all his own. From his witty comebacks to his deep thinking, he would grant you meaningful and memorable moments. Not only that, but he'd be patient, kindhearted, and thankful for any time spent with you. He'd be a perfect Valentine. <3

I'd love to hear who your top 5 are so be sure to leave a comment!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Xoxo,

Glitzy's Gamer Spotlight #3



What is your name?
Ombr

When did you start playing Guild Wars 2?
Or how long have you been playing?
I have been playing GW2 since the first public beta release!

What made you want to try the game?
I'm a fan of GW1, so playing GW2 was a normal transition. I have been playing GW1 since the release of Factions. The new mechanics that came with GW2 (jumping, swimming, dynamic combat, etc) got me really excited for GW2.

What's your favorite profession to play and why?
My main is a thief. In fact, I have three thieves..! I like to play Revenant and Necromancer too. I like the fast-paced playstyle involved with thief and the high burst dps.

When you log into the game what is the first thing you like to do?
I usually craft my daily mats and then run around in Rata Sum until I find something to do!

Have you bought Heart of Thorns? If so, what is your impression of the new maps and events?
If you have not bought it explain why and if you plan to.
I bought HoT and I'm really disappointed in this expension. Anet didn't deliver. The new maps are stunningly beautiful, but hard to navigate and confusing because of the different layers and because the map doesn't give you good indications of at what layer the things are. Plus, no new dungeons and FOTM at release, no content for casual players, only 4 maps, no new major city, and the content of this expansion is really just 4 meta events that are on a timer.

What goals have you set for yourself in game?
I want to craft some legendary weapons and the legendary backpack. As for the legendary armor .. we'll see down the road how that goes!

If you are in a guild you'd like to promote please tell us about it!
If you are not in one, what are you looking for in a guild?
Dungeons and Dragons [DnD] for the win.

Any updates or fixes you wish ANet would work on?
Give us more content and bring dungeons back.


If you could visit IRL one of the cities of Tyria which one would you pick and why?
Rata Sum, cause I ain't no bookah.
