Calling All Bloggers !!

Hello and a super duper hi again. So glad that you are here and reading what we have to say today.  Which i think is really amazing and possibly exciting for some. Well, if you love hair accessories and specifically flower crown headbands. (excitement may consume you) Now, to the point of the post.

We are currently looking for bloggers who would be interested in hosting giveaways with our products. Currently we are looking for three bloggers which we will be giving two items from our past summer collection. As, we are currently in the process of adding new items to our shop. I thought why not share the remaining pieces in a creative way. This is a new concept for us and hopefully something that we will continue to do, at the end of each season.



Bloggers or small crafting sites can email the following info, to the email address included on the site.


We need this info if you would like to be a part of our Glitter Zombies world.

Link to your blog

How long has your blog been active?

What type of blog do you currently operate?

Do you have an Etsy shop?

How would you promote the giveaway or contest?

Also you must follow Glitter Zombies on Instagram or BlogLovin.



If your application is approved you will receive two flower crown headbands. Which you will use in your giveaway/contest. You will also receive a tiny rosette flower crown headband for becoming a Glitter Zombies affiliate ( you do not have to include this in your giveaway)


Looking forward to seeing if any of you readers out there are interested in becoming honorary Glitter Zombies by spreading our sparkle and shine.

The September Report

Hello, and hi again. This post may be a bit weird as it is a little late, because september has already started. Basically, i really just wanted to chat a bit about whats going on with Glitter Zombies during the awesome and cozy month of september. All of the new projects and our hopes and dreams. Still here and interested...well read on !






At the start of each month i like to compile everything that i would like to happen. Happen both in my career and everyday life. Take a look at what I've compiled and maybe become inspired to create your own "survival guide". Just a few A...B... AND C's...

A)   I really enjoy working on my blogs both the art and fashion portals. Taking time out from the day   to sit and write whatever comes to mind is actually really fulfilling. It gives me the opportunity to                      create topics and explore avenues that I'm really excited about. Also i really love sharing things that i create with the readers and seeing feedback and positive comments. So, my goal is to definitely grow the blogosphere and reach a larger audience and just grow !!!

B)  Art is and has always been a great fascination of mine. Its forever changing and never forcing an unnecessary permanence. My favorite style of art would probably have to be abstract. Which is a major factor in my creative motivations and probably why i love the opposite of the now, (whats on trend). My characters and zombie beings are my crazy obsessions. Hopefully, there will be some sort of animation type project in the future. Or maybe even a special project that will allow all of the school goers to take of piece of the GZ world along in their backpacks. ( and maybe on lunch boxes??)

C)  I think there may be a fashion show in the air around the end of september. I am currently working on curating the final pieces for the first Glitter Zombies collection, which i will post about soon. I also would love to have people who actually know Glitter Zombies and what being a glitter zombie means, to model the collection. More info soon.

D)  Finishing up regular college and moving on to do a few fashion related courses. This little project will extend a tiny bit beyond September. However, i thought that i didn't hurt to mention. As it is still really exciting.

E)  Growing the GZ brand. Which to me means expanding the product selection in our current Etsy shop. Opening an external shop that will house all of our Glitterific products and vintage collection. Also, my mother and i are going to be opening a vintage boutique. Which all of the local angelenos will soon be able to come and see.



Well, there you have it, in short my happenings and aspirations. Hopefully everything goes as planned and the reports will be up soon for your viewing pleasure. Now that you have read my mind get going and swim around yours. Outline for yourself what you would like to achieve, work really hard, believe and the dreams shall be conceived.

D.I.Y Flower Crown Kit's

The summer season is almost officially over until next year. Which means that a few of our designs will be going away as well. Meaning that headbands not already created lay alone without a purpose or a home. So, one day after a long think tank session, a few of us zombies had an idea. ( Mainly me) We thought that it would be awesome to package up the extra bobs and throw in a few bits and make them into kits.



"Mini Carnation Kit."




"Royal Flower Crown Kit."


Check out these and other designs currently available in our shop on Etsy. GlitterZombiess.Etsy.com

Tiny Tour

As, i have not posted anything in a while on this blog. I thought that it would be fun to do a tour of my studio and not in the boring sort of way. By this I mean the usual overly done setups with basic snoozy photographs. I instead took a vintage or scrapbook approach. This is the first page, more coming soon.



"This is where i write words and stuff for my blog sometimes."


"Break time means book time!!!!"



"Some of my new drawings and this and that."

"A view from the other side."

"For whenever i need a Disney moment....mirror...mirror...on the well you know."

"Thats it for this weeks peek."


Check out a new section of my studio each week. Next week I'm going to show everyone where the actual designing and photo sessions happen, should be fun. If you want to tune in, please do.

Back To School Style Guide

Having doubts about what to wear on the first day of school. Or maybe there are certain limitations put in place making some of your fashion ideas impossible. Well,lucky for you we put together a few of our fave looks that are perfect for Autumn and back to school. Take notes......the teachers watching.



Preppy and traditional. Perfect for the schools with dress code limitations such as color and length.



Incorporate fun accessories like your favorite Glitter Zombies headband or trusty shoulder tote. Looks great while being casual and fun.




If you prefer a bolder approach. Try mixing textures like lace with neon jewelry.



Bohemian inspired jewelry is always a must and hey it goes great with a composition notebook. Be bold and daring....when it comes to jewelry.

If you haven't struck a look yet, I'm sure this ballerina inspired dress will be just the thing



For the girl who likes to make everyday an event.



A slight nod to the classical aspects of fashion. Why not empty your trusty handbags contents and use it for your books. Also, it's really great to think out of the box when it comes to your looks add ons. The bracelet featured in this look is actually a silk scarf. Yet, tying it around the wrist made for a more casual and school appropriate vibe.



Try a sweater on top for colder months. This look travels through the seasons amazingly well.



Sunglasses may not be permitted in school but are a must for this look and those moments just before you step inside.



If accessories aren't really your thing and you adore a more minamalist clothing collab. Why not pair your favorite vintage or concert tee with a pair of sunnies ( doubling as a headpiece of course). It will  scream your point loud and clear.



Don't forget that when it comes to necklaces and earrings for school, the tinier the better. 



I hope you enjoyed our first and second day of school looks along with the tips and styling suggestions. Make them your own and have a super wonderful and successful school year. Both educational and style wise.



Also, check our twitter every Monday for great accessories styling tips.
