( . ) ( . )

Y'all. I saw a preview of the Glisten website and OH MY GORGEOUS. I am obsessed. More than obsessed. Obsessed doesn't even scrape the surface of how I feel. I shared the logo on Instagram so I figured it was a good time to share it on my little blog, too! This is the finalized logo (and it looks even better in color!):


What do y'all think?! I hope you love it as much as I do! My goal is to launch the website sometime in July...I know it sounds kinda far away (seriously didn't realize how much time & money went into starting a business...but I know it'll be worth it) but it'll be here before I know it! I'm hoping to have my tanks ready to sell by then, too :)

Why July you ask? Let me tell you. I'm about to get real with y'all. Well I'm always real, but I'm about to get personal. I mentioned in this post that I'm having surgery on June 14th. I also said that it was cosmetic and that I am totally fine. I was iffy about posting about this on the blog, but y'all are gonna find out sooner rather than later so I figured I might as well lay it all on the table now.

I'm getting breast implants. Yep...a boob job. 

I know some people are anti-plastic surgery, but I'm not one of those people. The way I see it, I have worked my butt off (literally) to look the way that I do. I am dedicated. I push myself and am proud of my results (hence why I'm starting Glisten...I want to help other people feel their best, too!), but I'm still not 100% comfortable in my own body. I've wanted a boob job since I was 17 years old. When I lost all my weight, my boobs shrunk...duh, because boobs are made up of fat. They just aren't very pretty to look at since I've toned up. I've never been made fun of or anything, but when I look in the mirror I'm not as happy as I'd like to be. That might sound shallow to some people, but like I said...I'm just being real today. I want boobs for ME.

Don't worry, I'm not gonna show up in pictures with some double D's or anything crazy. I'm a smaller person, so I'm being moderate with the implant size. I'm mostly having the procedure done to fill my boobs out rather than make them huge. If that makes any sense. My surgery is June 14th, and I'll have to take a few weeks off of working out to recuperate. This is my first time having surgery so I'm not sure how my body handles this kind of thing. Once I'm all healed I'll be recording a weekly workout video to post on the Glisten site. I seriously have a lot of fun stuff in store for y'all!

If you're not a fan of breast implants or plastic surgery, hey, good for you! But this is my body and my decision, so I'd really appreciate it if you'd keep any negative comments to yourself :) Thanks!

  1. I lost a ton of weight in HS so I can totally relate to that part of your body not feeling as pretty as the rest. I'm hoping one day to at least have a lift (but I'll probably get a little something extra added, too) just because it does become a part of your self esteem (the boobies not looking good vs the boobies looking awesome). So good for you! I can't wait for Glisten to launch - it sounds amazing!

  2. The little selfish imp in the back of my mind is satisfied that even people with bangin' bods such as yourself still have things they're self-conscious about.

    And I TOTALLY plan on having a lift after I have kids. Good luck and I hope your recovery is quick and easy!

  3. Congrats on all of your successes! I am all for enhancements so congrats on your surgery. I did the opposite. I had a breast reduction and a lift. Warm wishes, and heal quickly! Can't wait for your website to launch!

  4. Good luck with your augmentation! I had a nose job a few years back...even though nobody made fun of me, I was terribly uncomfortable and hated having my picture taken, so I fixed it! If anybody gives you trouble for it, remember that they probably don't understand because they've never been in a similar situation.

  5. I'd be happy if you'd like to take some of my boobage off my hands! Lol, I'll gladly give you some of mine to plump yours up! (Not sarcastic at all btw)

    Thanks for being real & honest, it's good to know that no matter how rockin' somebody looks they still have something they're insecure about.

    You are beautiful! Can't wait to see after pictures & see the website!!

  6. As someone who did the happy dance when she was finally big enough to buy a B cup, I totally get it. Plus you earned your amazing body! Do what you need to do, girl. I don't blame you one bit!

    Oh, and the logo looks great! Remember me when you're famous ;)

  7. Love the Glisten logo!! Can't wait for the launch! Kudos for doing something that will make you happy. I've always wanted one too but here at 38... Well I may never have the money or courage to do it!!' But completely understand your decision!! Here at bathing suit season it will be so much easier to find one that 'fits'!!! Good luck!

  8. LOVE the logo! You've worked so hard for this & it's nice to see how everything is unfolding. I wish I had bigger boobies too, but I just couldn't bring myself to do surgery :/

  9. When I saw your post title, I stopped for a split second and was thinking are those really boobs? I must be seeing something! But indeed they are lol. You are gorgeous now, and I hope the boobies will help you realize that :)

You wrote this with no fear of what other's (your readers) think of you, you're just doing it and you're PROUD OF IT and that's so beautiful.

  13. Good for you, girl!!! Proud of you for being brave enough to share! Trust me, it's reassuring to know that people I see as perfect have body issues (like you, you're gorg girl!!). There is no shame in it. Do what makes YOU happy!! That's what really matters and the people who love you will support you regardless!!! Congrats on being fearless and taking control of your life to make yourself happy!!!

  15. *fixed typo*

    When I read this post at first I was a little shocked, not because of what you were saying but mostly because people don't usually talk about it beforehand. They usually mention something afterwards like "oh by the way". And either way I think it's completely up to the person if they want to share or not, you just chose to share ahead if time. Which is wonderful and empowering.

    I enjoyed you sharing your thoughts and feelings on this because everyone has the things they'd like to change. Me? I put on extra weight over the last few years and I'd like to see my DDD go back down to a C. It actually bothers me to have a large chest because I know it's from being overweight. I'm going to do what I can to fix it and lose weight overall. But it's similar, because we both have things we can do to make ourselves happier and everyone deserves that.

    Bottomline you go girl. I think it's brave. You may have inspired someone to feel more comfortable with a decision they have been pondering. Best of luck and wishes for a speedy recovery!

  17. I'm new to your blog via Aubrey, but I scrolled through pages of your old posts and think your boobs are great the way they are now. I'm probably the 1% of women that would say that lol and would be say that I like having small boobs. Wearing an XS/S tee shirt has it perks! Even before I was married, I never enjoyed men looking elsewhere rather than my face. You look amazing as is, but if new ta tas are what you want, then go and get em! :)

  18. Girl, I can relate. The first places I lose weight is my boobs and booty, which is unfortunate because that makes the curves...well...curvy, ya know? I think you look awesome how you are now, but if bigger ta ta's makes you happy, go for it! Praying for smooth surgery and recovery. Definitely rest, rest, rest afterwards. It can be a painful healing process (had a couple of friends get boob jobs), but later on it will be worth it!

  19. Good for you. You bust your butt to look amazing and I say if you want this for yourself go for it girl. You already look amazing, this is just like an added bonus. Wear them proud girl. :)

    Good luck with surgery and take all the time you need your true fans are waiting for you :)

  21. A good friend of mine in college had gigantic bazoomas. She had back pains galore. Because of it, she had her breasts REDUCED--which, some might feel is completely ridiculous. But, for her, it was the right step to take for her happiness (and ultimately proved to be the right choice as all pain went away!). While breast implants might not be the choice for everyone, if it means it will make you feel better about yourself, then more power to you. It's your body and your decision--haters gonna hate, so you keep on doin' you pretty lady!

  22. I know we've already "talked this out," but... I support you! :)

  23. I recently just found your blog and I have to say I am totally hooked! Your blog is adorable and your new logo is super cute! Yaaay how exciting! And on the topic of boob jobs I can totally relate! I am on my own weight loss journey and the first place I'm loosing is up on top sadly. So I totally am thinking of getting surgery in a few years. Hope it goes well and you have a speeeeedy recovery :)

  24. Love the look of the logo!! Best of luck with your upcoming surgery :)

  25. Congratulations on starting a new business, I love the logo. I do not have a problem with cosmetic surgery if it is done for the right reasons, your reasons. One thing I would suggest is to make sure that you take it slow for a couple of weeks after surgery.
