happy 2018, dolls!

i know, it has been, like, a million years since i last posted-
so what better way to get into the swing of things than with an 
exciting introduction to the very first drink on the market 
specifically designed to take care of your smile?

brewed from organic tea leaves, and made with xyvita- a patented ingredient 
made from birch treesqii natural tea (pronounced "chee") is an
 FDA approved/ non-GMO/vegan powerhouse- 
created to reduce the acidity in your mouth 
...while also freshening your breath. 

AND on top of ALL that, it tastes absolutely fantastic!!
light, refreshing, and smooth- this tea has no icky aftertaste and 
leaves teeth feeling squeaky clean, rather than sugary/sticky,
like most drinks do! i rarely have time to brush my teeth after a meal
-- this seems like a lovely (and tasty!!) alternative.

the packaging is bright and adorable, the cans are sleek and easy to hold,
and they are made right here, in the old US of A. 
can you even beat it? no, you really can't.

and now, it's time for the fun part! 
the giveaway!

this week, i will be offering one of my US resident readers a chance to win 
**a year supply of qii/ with free shipping/ no purchase necessary**

to enter, please:
1) follow @aglimpseofglamour_on instagram
3) leave a comment with your name and email address on the blog!

a winner will be announced on january 29th!
 good luck!

DINER EN BLANC 2017: what i wore!

this year, for DINER EN BLANC 2017, i took a gamble and played 
a little game of "let's look in the closet and pull out everything white." 
 luckily, it paid off! 

as a busy mama, with no attention span or time for shopping
 (even though i work in retail and play with clothes all day long!)
 i often find myself thanking past-sami for being such a thrift queen, 
stock-piling dresses for my future use!

the dress i wore was from my best friend's wedding a few years ago-
it is a fun eyelet, which was perfect for an end of summer fete.

my feather wrap added yet another texture to my all-white ensemble,
and just the right amount of warmth for a late summer evening.
i've had it for-ev-er and it's actually from forever 21!

i piled on a mixture of vintage/ j-crew and betsey johnson baubles,which all seemed to 
have a lavender tone to them. i brought along a lavender kate spade bag (conveniently
not pictured for breaking the all-white rule!) and gold gucci-inspired sandals 
from asos. my lipstick was a purpley mixture of playtime and pink popcorn by mac ;)

like last year, my favorite part of diner en blanc was getting to spend time to
my blog wife/ blog partner in crime, lei ann. we always seem to be coordinated
whenever we meet up-but this time it was on purpose!

thank you to lei ann for the fabulous photos :)
