Glittered in Goals is a series of live women’s empowerment events created by Houston influencer, Valaencia Thompson. These events are fun and interactive, creating a welcoming environment for introverts and extroverts alike.

Valaencia is the founder of FROREALDOE, a social media platform and hub for all things geared toward lifestyle and inspiration. Whether she’s conducting interviews on her podcast, covering local events on the blog, or sharing beauty and more on YouTube, Valaencia is all about encouraging others to get outside of their box.


Valaencia created Glittered in Goals events for women who are looking for safe spaces to address the stuff that often distracts us in life. The good stuff, the bad stuff, the happy stuff, the sappy stuff. Glittered in Goals is here to form a sister circle around one another as we navigate life, and get closer to our individual goals.

I truly enjoyed myself at this event. It was filled with lots of positive energy. I loved how it became a big conversation where we were bouncing our thoughts/ideas off of one another. Definitely need more things like this to unite women!

Glittered in Goals was awesome! Valaencia really stepped out of the shell to bring strong women together. The guest speakers were great! I definitely will attend another event.

I also wanted to give an extra special thank you to Carnegie Homes. You have seen me tagging them in Instagram and Facebook posts leading up to the event and also in my stories posted.

I wanted to post the listing to the beautiful home that we were hosted in.

Glittered in Goals was an amazing and uplifting experience! It was great to see and to be with a group of women that have great goals and high expectations of themselves for the year. The speakers were wonderful, and I plan on achieving my goals this year as well.

At Glittered in Goals I as reminded to “choose my attitude” and be the dictator over the energy in my atmosphere by being a catalyst for positivity.
