glowing up while discussing my high school glow up


So welcome to my glow up. Ummm Basically, I have nothing on my face at all. Nothing in my hair. Nothing on my body Like I am au naturale and I am going to be turning this… into this I don’t know what I just showed here, but I hope it’s nice Let’s look up the definition of a glow up for the older crowd. Urban Dictionary says to go from the bottom to the top to the point of disbelief. Not only am I gonna be glowing up from like no makeup on to all the works But also I’m gonna be telling you about my high school to now glow up. When I was in high school I just did nothing right.. like nothing right in regards to my appearance. I tried, but nothing. I’ll put in some pictures from high school. Who is she? Without further ado Let’s get into this video and I’m gonna go through everything that I fixed about myself to get to this point. Enjoy Alright, let’s wax. I pretty much do my own eyebrows and stuff. Oh my god. That’s the first story we’re gonna start with. The time I butchered my eyebrow when I was 15, it’s still like… something’s still wrong with it When I was 15, I found my mom’s face shaver, something like this. Okay? You use this like to get rid of the peach fuzz on your face Well, I used it to shave my entire eyebrow off Don’t you just love teenage years? Firstly I didn’t even realize like something was wrong with it. I didn’t try to fill it in or anything So one time I was in my French class, which my French teacher watches these videos, so Hi Ms. Kowalczyk. I hope everything’s great I miss you. I love you. How do you say that in French? Wait, Bonjour Madame Kowalczyk. Ani.. Oh, no, that’s Hebrew. Bonjour Madame Kowalczyk. J’espère… You know just.. bonne journée! So, I was in French class and this guy that was my French class He just like looked at me for a really long time and he just said, “I just realized what’s wrong with your face” “Your eyebrow is really little!” It’s not as noticeable now But luckily I discovered the brow pencil since then and now my eyebrows. Well, they don’t look Horrible. I think that’s good. I hope that’s good cuz that’s all we’re doing Alright, so now let’s move on to a face mask. The one thing that I did do right in high school, I will say I didn’t have like any acne and my skin was perfect I think that has something to do with the fact that I didn’t use birth control When I was in high school, and birth control just like messed with my skin Okay, I’m gonna let this sit for 10 minutes and then we will hop into the shower and Continue. I have my bikini on, I just put it on. Don’t laugh at me, but I don’t want to wash my hair I’m gonna wear a shower cap. I’ve never worn a shower cap before. Wait, how does this…? No, shut up. It’s this big?! What What the hell? Huh? How do you.. do this? What the f– Okay, wait. This is not covering my whole head. Did I put it on wrong? Oh my god Ummm.. I’m confused. Alright, you know what? We’re just gonna go with it It’s time for the shower cap reveal Pretty dry. Time to brush my teeth. I’m gonna use some normal toothpaste and then I’m going to use some charcoal toothpaste Ohhhh boy Time to spit. L’chaim! It’s so hard to get the back ones like Okay, you know what, good enough. Oh myy god, it’s looking bad. Oh my god, it looks horrible. Okay. I need a different mitt. This mitt sucks. I got it Oh, please take me away mitt Help! Help! Oh my god. Okay. We’re tan! Oh.. When I was a young girl I was a little bit of a bucky, meaning I had buck teeth and I had an extreme overbite… as well I got braces when I was in fourth grade, and I had to wear a headgear My dentist said I only needed to wear my headgear in my sleep But me thinking that this was extremely cool. I decided to wear it to school one day That was my first round of braces. Then I got braces on again in seventh grade And then I had those on until 8th grade and ever since then I’ve been wearing retainers Yes to my orthodontist If you are watching this, I do wear my retainers my teeth were the first thing on my face to get fixed Thank you to my dad and to my orthodontist and to Jesus really for fixing that. Let’s talk about my hair I just like didn’t know how to do my hair. The biggest problem with me and my hair is that when I would find a hairstyle that I would like and I’d wear it once and maybe I’d get like one compliment on it I would wear it every single day For example One time I put all my hair down and then I just braided.. I put one braid here and one braid here and then I connected it in the back like a crown. I wore that hairstyle one day and then wore it everyday, I think until the rest of the year. From there I moved into a bunch of different hairstyles I got into this weird phase where I would like clip my hair I would do a side part and then I’d bring my hair over here I would put a little tiny clip right here. Like that one lasted years! My clothing choices That’s where I really dropped the ball I thought that wearing my older brother’s hand-me-downs was cool. My life changed when I discovered Yoga pants. My mom bought me like 20 pairs. I’m not exaggerating and I would just wear yoga pants every single day I think I wore yoga pants every single day for two and a half years if that’s not bad enough Let’s talk about my underwear choices. I wore granny panties and yoga pants and granny panties They don’t mix. You could see the line of my underwear through my yoga pants. My mom She tried to tell me. She tried to get me to throw them away. I didn’t listen to her. I thought I looked fine So I went to college. I was still wearing my yoga pants and underwear combination. Finally someone just told me, “Listen. Everyone’s making fun of you” “They can see the line of your underwear through yoga pants.” I texted my mom that night She drove up two and a half hours to Santa Barbara and we went to Nordstrom’s and I bought my first thong. That didn’t just stop at the bottom. I had that same issue with my bras Um, I was exclusively wearing sports bras in high school and they weren’t even sports bras. They were like, they were like grandma bras I don’t know how to describe them They were just like extremely comfortable and they made your boobs like flat and I was growing boobs at this time Obviously no one could tell, like I was wearing these grandma sports bras and I was wearing my brother’s clothing, that absolutely did not show my figure. A few weeks before I left for college, my mom she looked at me seriously and she said And I said mom take me! Take me, mom! Fix me! Thank you Mom for doing that for me or else I would have gotten made fun of for my grandma bras at college Thankfully, it was only my grandma panties that I got made fun of for Let’s move on… to my body. This kind of ties in with the whole clothing thing Okay, let’s just get this out of the way Literally everyone from high school thinks that I’ve had a boob job I can assure you that I have not. This is gonna get TMI I got my period when I was 16, that was a year before I graduated so no, I have not had a boob job I am just a late bloomer Also my boobs only look good when they’re in a bra. When they’re not in a bra, it’s just like I used to be frustrated about this. I used to be like, “Mom! Everyone thinks I’ve had a boob job” “Isn’t that ridiculous?” And my mom told me, “Why are you mad about it?” “That’s like a compliment if they think you’ve had a boob job” But also, I would just like to say I am terrified of needles I haven’t even gotten a blood test in my life. For me to voluntarily go plastic surgery before getting my blood tested. It’s funny I’m gonna get real TMI Do you see this? That is called… I can’t say it right because I’m not a doctor… axillary breast tissue Basically It’s a third boob. Some breast tissue got trapped in my armpit when my boobs are coming in. If I had breast implants do you think I like intentionally put in this little tiny third boob into my armpit to make it look real No! Let’s talk about my gym habits. Recently, you’ve been seeing me in the gym My boyfriend made me like a gym schedule or routine, but in high school. Oh, high school! I went to a gym where there were a lot of members from my high school So I would see a lot of people from high school at the gym So I would try and just like stick to myself Okay? And that meant that I would do an hour on the treadmill. On the speed of like 3.0, which is like a light walk My favorite song to listen while walking on the treadmill was Stairway to Heaven. To make matters worse for myself I would walk in my yoga pants, with my underwear line, and my brother’s oversized t-shirts Hey everyone, my camera died So I’m gonna take a break probably eat some food and we’ll get back after the camera’s charged Hot Really hot. But good. Very good. Another thing I didn’t do until I got to college was drink I had my first sip of alcohol when I was 17 The reason I didn’t drink in high school is I was a part of a group and it was a no drinking and no drug group I did it to get into college? Let’s be honest. I didn’t drink, I mean, come on, I didn’t even go to parties when I was a kid What? Was I gonna drink with my parents? Let’s talk about something else that traumatized me when I was in high school. Facebook I created my Facebook in 2008. Once in a while, I get reminded of.. I don’t know, my status updates? I was using Facebook as a personal diary. You know what? Let’s read a few here, okay? “is in Puerto Rico we go on the cruise ship tomorrow. My cell phone has terrible service. The flight was awful (spelled wrong) It’s raining, but this is still kind of fun. Aunt and uncle are with us.” “All done packing now I just got to finish Animal Farm on the plane. Only two chapters left”. “Hmmm.. Animal Farm is actually pretty good” “Woke up super early because we’re going on the boat going to dock near Corona del Mar And I have to jump in the freezing water We probably won’t come back until 6:00 because we have to wash the boat. Bittersweet” “Not going on the boat and just gave my stubborn cat a bath” “James Franco is the definition of gorgeous” Oh, if only you could just delete everything before 2012 Am I right? Did I hit it out of the park or is it still, is the ball still in the park and like we’re almost there, but if we got the hair done then it will be out of the park. Did I do that? Let’s do hair. I wish I could kiss you good-bye, but my lips are quite glossin’. Okay I’m done! I want to clip my hair Am I doing this right? I want to remind you that we started around 9:30 in the morning and it is now 3:42 PM This is why I don’t glow up often. I want to wear a dress. I feel like going to prom or something No, I’m not. What do we pick? Maybe this? This dress? Yeah, we’ll do that I can see this I can see me in this dress I don’t know what to do. I’m just so excited to be here! Should I put some like shoes on, to like really complete it? Okay, hold on! Tory Burch flops. Huh.. Well I don’t know what to do! Wow, that’s really pretty lighting, you know Get ready for like two minutes of pure vanity, okay? Now I just have to ask, did you ever think when you saw that video clip of me Showering in a bikini and a shower cap and a face mask that it would turn into this. I I didn’t think so
