Lyrics to "You Are Loved" by The Girls With Glasses

verse one:

when there's no snow in sight

just cold winter wind and ice,

magic of the man in red

can't be recalled within your head.

if somethings missing from your heart

don't let the bustle pull you apart.


no matter who forgets,

whatever your regrets,

he's watching over you

with angels out of view.

the season to remember, remember you are loved.

remember you are loved. love love love loved.

verse two:

melancholy in your soul?

put the jingle back in your rock'n'roll.

grab ahold of heavenly hope,

lift the hearts of others who mope.

if somethings missing from your heart,

don't let the bustle pull you apart.


no matter who forgets,

whatever your regrets,

he's watching over you,

with angels out of view.

the season to remember, remember you are loved.

remember you are loved. love love love loved.

if you're feeling blue,

somebody's loving you.

someone's always loving you.


no matter who forgets,

whatever your regrets,

he's watching over you,

with angels out of view.

the season to remember, remember you are loved.

remember you are loved. love love love loved.

remember you are loved. love love love loved.

remember you are loved. love love love loved.

Behind the Scenes of our Holiday Song

Yesterday, Brooke and I put some time aside to work on The Girls With Glasses Show. We knew we wanted to do another video and I had messed around with some lyrics for a possible Christmas song. In true GWG style, we decided to write the song, find a recording studio, buy some jingle bells, record the song and shoot a video for the song all in about 5 hours. It was crazy, to say the least.

It was fun working with Brooke on music, I (again) realized how talented she is at creating music and singing (go figure). And I also learned that I should keep one ear out of the headset, because you can't hear your own voice. I sounded terrible...

But, we did have fun. Watch for our upcoming holiday video.

Dallas Shaw at DNKY

We had been fans of Dallas Shaw's work for years. Summer even featured her in one of the first ELIZA Magazines. It was exciting to get to meet her in person and chat about her new project with DKNY on twitter. The DKNY store was so big and bright--had a great vibe to it.

"Where did you get that adorable little blue pen necklace?" or "What is that head band hair thingy you were wearing?" you inquire? We've been getting loads of questions regarding those must have items we featured in our "how to pack a suitcase" and "the carry on" videos...

Well, Ask and ye shall receive...

This beautiful Kate Spade bag has a name of it's own... "La Casita Josephine" AKA Summer's dream bag. This isn't technically a "carry on" but it is a perfect bag with loads of mini compartments to store all your little travel odds and ends. PS... it's on sale!!

If you are the kind of gal that is always losing your writing utensil then we have found a solution for you, a completely adorable solution we might add! This cheery blue pen attached to a dainty gold chain can be found in a Kate Spade store near you!

In addition to the fabulous items above, you can also find this striped umbrella that is ideal for keeping your lovely locks dry at a Kate Spade store on online... By the way, we love stripes.
Are you loving those plastic orange or blue frames? Perhaps Love is an understatement... how about we're obsessed! We've got more to show you from this ultra hip AND affordable AND charitable eye wear company WARBY PARKER...

Ever try to wash your face or apply make-up and your hair keeps getting in the way? Maybe you've tried the headband...probably still end up with a wet hairline right? The tassi can end all your troubles. Brooke, her mom and sister has been using the Tassi for years, as she grew up in a house right next to the inventor. Once you try this clever little invention, you'll never wash your face with out it. Oh and the best part is that it doesn't mess up your hair...

Summer swears by the Clarisonic, just take one look at her face and you'll be a believer. It is a little electronic contraption with swirling bristles that scrub all your make-up and grime away leaving your face ultra clean. It is a bit pricey, but you would consider it an investment in your skin. Constant travel will take it's toll on the appearance of skin, so proper care is necessary!
Flat hair, Oily roots, no access to a shower? Try Dry shampoo... works wonders on a second, third... dare we say fourth day hair do's. There are several brands making dry shampoo, Brooke's personal favorite is Pssss which is super cheap and can be found at your local drugstore.
This is another splurge... it's pretty fancy stuff, but if you are looking for a powder to wipe away signs of facial fatigue induced by a sleepless red eye flight, this is the one. It is soft as velvet and the color never looks fake or too pinky. As well it has a built in SPF 15.
That not so fresh airplane cabin air doesn't do your skin any favors, you might notice that it begins to feel dry and tight after a long flight... Dermalogica makes some fantastic toners that will help to re-hydrate, refresh and calm your skin.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in a world where everything was travel-sized... what an adorable world it would be. The tide to go mini pen is travel size and fits perfectly in your purse, so you'll be ready for those moments when perhaps you've hit some frightening turbulence and your tomato juice spills on to your fancy sweatpants.

Whether you are running through the airport or walking down the boardwalk, a pair of "june bug" Sanuks are both ultra comfy and stylish, as well they don't take up much space in your suitcase. Oh and one other tip, don't forget a pair of warm socks for the airplane, the toes get chilly!

In The Heights With Corbin Bleu

The Girls With Glasses interview Corbin Bleu of High School Musical and broadway hit In The Heights. If you haven't seen Corbin as Usnavi, you better hurry, this is his last week in the role!

This Week Only

Corbin Bleu captured our hearts in the worldwide sensation High School Musical. Until August 17th you can see Corbin perform In The Heights on Broadway. Brooke and I were able to see the show live and it's worth it. Corbin is such a big talent, it would be sad to miss his version of Usnavi, the Washington Heights bodega owner! Below is a sample of the show.

Inspired By The Girls With Glasses

We are thrilled to get positive emails and even more excited by the cute things people make and share with us. We want to feature two Girls With Glasses Show viewers today on the blog.

The first is from Emilee Sutherland, the owner of Esty shop Tastful Tatters. She made these charming little glasses necklaces "inspired by the infamous idol star Brooke White and her new show, The Girls With Glasses Show."

Second is Antonia Ormston who wrote to us saying " I love your theme song 'I am a Girl.' My three little girls love to watch your video. My eldest who just got glasses feels very cool now."
And she included this heartwarming picture of her three girls.

Thanks to everyone for your support and well wishes. We hope to continue to bring you inspiring content. Send us an email (the GWG show (at) gmail (dot) com) if we can share how you are inspired by The Girls With Glasses Show.

Interview With Jason Reeves

Brooke and Summer interview musician Jason Reeves. Jason sings Wishing Weed and the girls ask him questions about music, girls and smiling.

Meet The Girls

Brooke White and Summer Bellessa met on MySpace as fans and supporters of each others’ work, soon growing into good friends. "We would send each other new blogs that we fancied, or new music that we couldn't get enough of," says Summer. "We are both traditional on some things and innovative on others," adds Brooke. The girls’ paths have connected with The Girls With Glasses Show project, but it took very different ways to get there.

Brooke White
The magic of Brooke White resonates within her music and the former nanny’s first full-length release since she became an American Idol finalist in 2008. Brooke made an unforgettable first impression on Idol’s seventh season when she told the judges that she’d never watched an R-rated movie, prompting Simon Cowell to offer to bring her “to the dark side.” But as viewer’s found throughout her charmed run to a Top 5 finish, the Phoenix, Ariz. native presented herself like a beacon of light that shone through that “dark side,” a passionate swirl of willowing soul and ‘70s flavored gold.

The oldest of four siblings, Brooke’s parents passed their love of music on to their children, and that love has blossomed in her. “My upbringing is entirely the reason that I am the artist that I am today,” she says. “My parents are hardcore music fans, and we grew up in a small house, close together all the time. Music was the therapy that made us very happy as a family … I’m not an average music listener. I do this because I really do love it.”

Summer Bellessa
At four years old, Summer Bellessa started her modeling career and by 17 had the opportunity to travel the world living in fashion capitals that include: Paris, Hamburg, New York, Miami, London and Tokyo. Summer had clients such as Clairol, Sears, Target, Shiseido, Secret, Glamour, AT&T and Vidal Sassoon. Those experiences as a model opened her eyes to the world outside her hometown of Chicago Heights, Ill. Her metamorphosis from model into entrepreneur began as she effortlessly brought creative and talented people together to do great things.

Today, Summer continues to nurture creative minds from all kinds of different backgrounds capturing the fashion world as Founder and Editor of women’s fashion and lifestyle magazine ELIZA. A national publication that can be found in Barnes & Noble stores across the country, ELIZA was created for women who want to be stylish, sexy and engaged in the world while retaining high standards in dress, entertainment and lifestyle. "I chose the name Eliza because of my high regard for Audrey Hepburn, her style and her lifestyle. With the role of Eliza Dolittle in My Fair Lady, she helped everyone realize that with a little cultivation any woman from anywhere can be mistaken for a princess."

Get Smart

Glasses bring the world around you into clearer view: the vibrant details, the color, the fine print, all coming into focus. Not only are glasses practical, glasses are a defining and powerful accessory that can bring out the smart and savvy self that is inside all of us.

The Girls With Glasses Show was founded for every woman who wants to be entertained while also being informed and enlightened—it’s the smart girl talk show. Brooke White and Summer Bellessa bring together humor, intelligent insight and heart to fashion, entertainment, art and music to this part-hipster and part-variety talk show—and yes, they both do wear glasses in real life.

Each weekday, The Girls With Glasses Show will open with Brooke and Summer playing the theme song live. Think quirky like Wayne’s World, but re-touched with utterly hip, feminine and modern flair. Music and lyrics to The Girls With Glasses Show theme song, “I’m a Girl,” is an original piece co-written by the hosts, with Brooke on vocals and piano and Summer on drums and back-up.

The Girls With Glasses Show will then showcase a relevant “Topic of the Day” such as: Best Friends, Fashion Icons, Business, Hand-Made, Good Role Models, The Cinema, etc. Following the “Topic of the Day” is “Taste Maker Moments” that coincide with a particular weekday, such as: Book Worm Monday, New Music Tuesday, Bloggy Wednesday, Gotta Have It Thursday and Date Night Friday.

But the good stuff doesn’t stop there. The Girls With Glasses Show also includes a include a digital short, a special “on the street” segment with members from our Girls With Glasses team, a highlight of a lesser known musician, blogger, fashion designer, non-profit organizer, entrepreneur, author or artist, and finally, The Girls With Glasses Show will end with its main attraction, the celebrity interview.
