The Glisten Girls

We are the Glisten Girls

Our story
We consider ourselves “sistas by choice” and have been since high school, which was 10+ years ago now.  Fast forward through college, we went to totally different schools, but coincidentally joined the same sorority, AXO. All in all, we are best friends, we are complete opposites in many ways, but we together we share similar passions for seeking health and happiness from the inside out – aka “glistening”.

We started Shut Up & Glisten (SU&G) in mid-2014. Fresh out of college, we were hungry to start an adventure together. At the time, we focused on all things food. Specifically foods that supported living an allergen free life, by eliminating the things that Sam couldn’t eat or Breah didn’t want to eat. Taking a step back, a couple years later, we have realized that we too have evolved. Today, instead of seeking a very limited lifestyle, we challenge  ourselves to love and explore all things that add to the goodness of life –  laughs, friendships, sweat, wellness, AND food.

We certainly don’t have everything figured out, but we do know that the best way to find out is to glisten – by listening to our bodies, we believe, is the start to allow our passions to fuel life.
