I take pride in ensuring they’re taken care of regularly – hot meals ready by dinner time, clean covers at night, you know, the ‘everyday’ little things.
My pup Brooklyn is no exception. She’s our family dog: 10 months old & a Pit/Mastiff bull mix. We took her in when she was only a month old. One challenge we’ve continually dealt with as she grew older is her separation anxiety – and this is still something we’re working on to this day. I am very happy & pleased that her reactions to us being separate have improved; those first few nights of her staying a part from us are moments I wont ever forget. Her cries; my baby Brooklyn.
At this stage of her life, the only real separation anxiety we deal with mostly is while the hubby and I are away at work. Once we return home, Brooklyn. Goes. Crazy! That’s been the case up until recently when we tried out Dope Dog Calming Crunchies – and the results were immediate. We gave her a treat right when we left & upon returning home, she was excited – as she always is – but in a much calm, cooler & collective tone. We were immediately hooked.
Dope Dog is CA based product specializing in cannabinoid-rich hemp products. All products are tested by a third-party & are deemed safe and healthy for your pup. As someone who is a supporter of cannabis, I was more than excited to try out these products with Brooklyn. On top of being beneficial for separation anxiety, Dope Dog also helps with joint pain, epilepsy, inflammation and issues that may arise to your pup’s aging. I have not come across a product such as this one and am very thankful to have found it – this is a much needed product in our current dog market.
Though Brooklyn doesn’t have any other issues with the exception of her separation anxiety, it’s nice to know she is being treated for the other issues prior to them becoming a problem for her.
Early May has been such a hectic month – my mother-in-law came down to visit, it was my 25th birthday on Mother’s Day, and Darien & I went on a little vacation to South Florida (Miami, give me a few years, we WILL be moving down). I’ve been trying to get back into our groove, honing down the daily routine, but in a week’s time, my sister & brother will be making there way to mi casa. This unconventional month is not done with us.
Since turning 25 last Sunday, and it’s a bit weird to say, I can already see my thought process changing and my habits adjusting, both in positive ways. Every time I would experience a birthday, I’ve always entered the new year with “I feel the same exact age as I did yesterday; doesn’t feel any different.” Twenty-five’s tone is completely new.
These photos were taken on April 29th, the last Sunday of April, as the Sun was setting. This was also the night of the Full Pink Moon – & if you’re a believer in the powers of our Sun/Moon, then you would know the spiritual meaning of this night. It is the start of blossoming, making changes for the best – it being your habits or the circle of people around you. Embracing this new wave of positive change to enhance your life.
Did you know of the Full Pink Moon on 4/29/18? Have you noticed any changed in your habits, lifestyle, thoughts since the end of April? I would love to know down below!
Actually looking at my outfit, it didn’t dawn on me until that every single piece here is thrifted:

“I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to better.”

The universe has a weird way of working: I am a believer that the timing of things are all due to the ‘most high’ (whatever or whoever you associate that with) and in a way, are pre-planned. The Universe already has the ending result staged for you – it all depends on your actions and whether or not you accept the opportunities & challenges that come your way. Patience holds a huge part in finding the route to your successes – and moving to Florida has really instilled that in me.
Moving from the heart of the Big Apple to suburban FL has shown me a different side to life – the main lesson has been putting more energy and time into my foundation. Being the mama, I have to really nurture and love my family whenever it’s needed and that means sometimes putting side projects to a pause. I’m learning to embrace the pause while still finding the motivation to continue making the time.
Through local connections I’ve made, I was introduced to a fellow Latina, Yanitza Ninett, who also recently moved to Florida from Puerto Rico and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. It was a real pleasure working with someone who’s vision perfectly aligns with your own. It was real inspiration – and it happened at a time when my inspiration hasn’t been fully there. This was something I needed and I’m beyond excited to work with her again.
I’ve been searching for my motivation and doing this shoot gave me exactly that.
Be sure to check out Yanitza’s IG page – she has real drive when it comes to photography! Her work is amazing – she specializes in portrait photography, but has experience in weddings, family sessions/maternity and is now branching out into commercial.
Please let me know which shot is your favorite!
Thank you for stopping by. Sending my love, forever & always:
Is this real? Is this Glendaly really posting something on the blog. Wait, who’s GCeeStyle?
I’m sure there are a lot of questions popping into your head right about now, ie:Where have I Been? Why the name change? What caused my absence? Definitely stay tuned, I have another blogpost coming soon that will answer all of these questions. But to keep this post short & simple, I’ve officially stepped out of my shell in this 8 month long [hiatus &] transition to FL.
I have gone through so many obstacles, stages and changes these past few months; I am beyond happy to finally be comfortable in my space. I filmed a little outfit’s video styling my black H&M Turtle neck in 3 office inspired looks – I’m still working on finding the right spot to film at home. I think I may have found it, next step is to work on creating creatively there.
I hope you enjoy this video! I’m totally still woking on getting my groove, and set-up, back.
What better way to spend my last day then with an NYC themed OOTD video. This one was filmed by one of my good friends, Kendrin; also known as Koid24 on Instagram. Filming is his thing and I am so happy we manage to get a little collaboration video in before I left permanently.
The vision was most definitely in sync: I couldn’t be happier with the end result.
Kae and I were treated to a lil’ bowling date by Kendrin & his bae a few weeks ago. Just sit back, relax, and relive a NYC night with me.
My countdown to Florida is official: 1 more week. 7 more Days. 168 more hours. Too much?
I haven’t had the time to update the blog, but, incase you missed it, I did upload a full update video on my YouTube channel here. Due to certain circumstances, Darien and I have found that New York City just isn’t the place for us right now. It took me some time to adjust, but I’m ready for this new chapter in my storybook. While I’m still in the Big Apple, though, I’ve been hustlin’, harder than ever. Expect my next few posts to be based in NYC & collaborative.
I recently did a shoot with Amanda-Lee – also knows as @a_leethal on Instagram – who’s actually the first female photographer I’ve ever worked with. Needless to say, the #pussypower was real.
As far as the styling goes: this look was 100% inspired by Darien.
What do you think of the styling? Do you feel the skater kid vibes?
Those low points in life – they’re forever causing stress, heartache, maybe even slight depression. And no matter how hard you try to overcome your obstacle, you find yourself worse than before.
You’re allowed to feel down. Allowed to feel like there’s no hope. You should always permit yourself the time to feel. Even when the feelings aren’t great. You’re human, and you’re meant to handle rough roads. How else are you suppose to grow? Get stronger? Find YOU?
Give yourself the green-light to get lost for a bit. Once you find the path in that dark, dim world that is your thoughts, the directions to yourself will follow.

“Sometimes on the way to a dream, you get lost and find a better one.”
It’s been a good minute since I picked up a camera & shot on manual.
Before I started my blog, heck, before I even started my YouTube channel, I first became interested being behind the camera. I even applied to FIT in the hopes of majoring in Fashion Photography. But I’ll be honest, I didn’t really commit to photography the way I should have and wasn’t really surprised when I got my rejection letter, either. Life. It happens.
& I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I’ve been feeling super nostalgic lately – I’ve been itching to get back into old habits.
With that in play & my current, serious obsession with the whole Mom/Daughter-Blogger-Duo-thing, I decided to spend an afternoon shooting with my mini. When we’re out and about, she always asks me to take her photos – this just felt right.
At the end, I asked her if she had fun doing the shoot and she yelled “Yes!” with no hesitation.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Sending my love. ❤
Nothing feels more amazing than watching your dreams become your reality. I was not planning on having another shoot with Kaelynn for another few months but baby girl was ready to take photos with mommy. #blessed
This was definitely not expected – but it’s totally something I am extremely happy about. My obsession with the Mom & Daughter Blogger Duo is real and I cannot wait to start heading in that same direction with my own blog.
I was teaching the munchkin how to cross her legs and her attempts were beyond adorable to watch. And she totally got the hang of it after a while! The fact that she is totally open to trying new things makes my heart so warm; there’s really nothing else I can ask for as a mama.
Working on getting detailed shots is the next thing we’re going to tackle next time I include baby girl. She’s getting the hang of it and that means everything.
My little forever girl. ❤

Thank you so much for stopping by! Do you enjoy seeing Kaelynn on the blog? I would love to know your thoughts!
It’s been almost 2 weeks since my trip to California & I’m still living on cloud 9. I have had a love for California since I was 13, and to have been able to actually experience the lifestyle – I really couldn’t have asked for a better way to come into the New Year.
The main reason why Darien and I ended up in California for the weekend was because of Generation Beauty hosted by Ipsy. I am super thankful to have been invited to the event through the IpsyOS team; they are really big on spreading the light in the Beauty and Fashion community and I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of their team.
I was totally overwhelmed by the amount of free make-up that was given out to the Attendees, so much so that I decided to share with y’all ALL the goodies.
Did you attend Generation Beauty in LA? How about in SF or NYC? I would love to know your thoughts and feelings on the experience.
Thank you again, IpsyOS for the invite!
As always, thank you so much for stopping by; forever and always sending my love your way.
