Glam Glom

You’ve heard me talk about my friend April who I grew up with. She started the Pop Tinsel hair craze and made instant friends with celebrities and stylists alike. One of her biggest patrons is Adrienne Maloof from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Adrienne invited April up to her mansion for a fundraiser (and I got to tag along, thanks April!) and to promote Pop Tinsel. Adrienne ordered the tinsel on a weekly basis and promoted April’s glam product. She loved it! Why am I talking about this? Well, April also owns a successful salon in Las Vegas called Glam. And, she recently landed her own radio show called Atomic April’s Radio Glam, where she talks about all things glamorous, including: make up techniques, hair products, skin care, and fragrances.

The first picture is April’s Glam logo and the pics below the logo are of Adrienne sporting Pop Tinsel. And yes, that is April actually applying tinsel to Adrienne at her home in Beverly Hills.

The 4th pic is a sign of April’s Glam products at Niecy Nash’s bridal shower. Yes, April was at Niecy’s bridal shower offering glam products to her guests. (I got to be a part of that too, but that’s another story.) Niecy had products and services for her guests to enjoy like make-up artists, massage therapists and of course April and her Glam Studio products. It was another high-profile event where Glam products made it into the tabloids.

What is this leading to you ask? Well, the bottom pic is of Kim Kardashian’s new perfume called GLAM. I’m not saying she copied April, but April has spent the last 5 years promoting her Glam Salon, and her Pop Tinsel hair accessories to high profile clients. And….ummm… Kim’s logo looks almost identical to April’s logo. Did Kim steal April’s idea?  You decide for yourself.

Leave a comment and let us know if you think Kim Kardashian glommed onto April’s Glam, or if you think this is purely coincidental.

So Commercial!

My BFF April and I met when we were 3 years old. We grew up living next door to each other in Anaheim and have remained close to this day. She now owns a successful beauty salon in Las Vegas and has recently landed her own radio talk show about the beauty industry and all things “GLAM”. It’s called Atomic April’s Radio Glam. It airs every Tuesday from 3-4 pm, and every Friday at 1pm on Vegasallnetradio.com. Sunday at 10 am is the rebroadcast.

Anyway, I’m so excited that Roadkill Ranch & Boutique is an official sponsor of her show. She just created our first radio commercial in her studio and it aired for the first time yesterday at 3. I love it! I took some pictures and made a slide show, so now we have audio and visual. I hope you like it. Listen closely to the end disclaimer; it’s a bit of April and Julie’s on- going shenanigans. (Stay true to your weird self.)

And don’t forget to listen in and spread the word about her show- Atomic April’s Radio Glam.

Thank you April for always supporting us and for your amazing ability to turn any subject into laughter. A big thanks to Ray from Black Acre Leather and Megan Jeanne Photography (and her models) for capturing some great lifestyle shots. I’m so thankful to have great relationships with truly amazing and creative people.

Support those who support you and forget about those who forget about you. It’s that simple.
