Skylar Darrigan

I am a writer, lover, giver of light. I am a poet, spoken word artist, and songwriter. Everything on this site is my own work. I started the Skylar Glows Up blog on 8 January 2019 as a means of getting my creative juices flowing. A way of leaving a legacy to other hopeful and fierce solo travelers and expats. I aim to use this platform to share my personal experiences as well as those of others to help us, encourage us, keep our heads held high and of course to glow up.


“Sometimes, reaching out and taking the hand of another is the beginning of a journey. At other times, it is allowing another to take yours.”
