NOVEMBER BLOGGER OF THE MONTH: Shanda of The Naturalista Glam

Shanda Webb
Shanda Webb was born in San Francisco, CA. She was raised by her mother, Carolyn Webb in Houston, TX with her younger brother Travere Webb. In 1987, she and her family moved to Atlanta, GA and lived there for five years, while attending Sequoyah High School and Cross Keys High School.  After graduation in 1992, she and her family moved back to Houston, TX where she enrolled in Houston Community College. She went on to receive her Associate in Arts degree and was elected to Who’s Who Among Students in American Junior Colleges for 1997-1998. Shanda transferred to the University of Houston-Downtown and majored in Psychology and was inducted in Pi Gamma Mu, the International Honor Society in Social Science in 1998. 

After receiving her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology, she worked in the non-profit workforce development industry as a case manager, assisting low-income populations in gaining and retaining employment, for five years. In 2004, she left the non-profit industry and then worked as a Student Services Coordinator for a vocational trade school for seven years. Due to the reduction in student population, she was laid off from her position as a Student Services Coordinator in 2011. 

Shanda now works as an Office Assistant at an allied health vocational school during the day. And some evenings and weekends she is dabbling in fashion by working part time at retail boutique. Shanda’s interests and passions are: Blogging, accessories, spending time with family and friends, watching sports, attending fashion/beauty related events, encouraging and empowering others, personal growth and development, music and just enjoying life. 

Shanda wants to turn her passion into profit.  She will soon launch her accessory business called, “Adorned by Shanda”, a mobile jewelry business vending fashionable pieces from earrings to anklets, so be on the look out!

What is your blog about and your goals for your blog?
The NaturalistaGlam is a lifestyle blog of fashion, beauty, hair, and everything in between. It is my journey through life. The goal for my lifestyle blog is to help and inspire others along the way by providing authentic stories of my life’s experiences on hair, beauty and fashion.

What's your favorite thing about being a blogger?
My favorite thing about blogging is sharing my story, my passions with others, and at the same time giving a sense of who I really am. I have always loved to write and blogging is a platform that allows me to share my point of view throughout the world in a creative way.

Why did you choose to join Houston Fashion Bloggers?
I joined HFB because I wanted to network with other bloggers that I could gain support from, who share the same goals and ideas. Just before discovering HFB, I really didn’t know about Houston’s blogging community or a lot about blogging, but I knew I wanted to take my blog to the next level. HFB came into my life at the right time. Since then, I have met some wonderful ladies in HFB who have given me lots of inspiration, support for my blog and me as a blogger.


  1. Nice blog from a beutiful person. Natural hair just makes a man like me feel that your confidence in your natural state is through the roof and it glows through your personality. Good luck in you business endeavors! Your friend PDR.
