    She is being sarcastic. There is nothing glamorous about the situation she finds herself in.

    glamor (glamour) = magic, enchantment

    Note that "glamour" has another definition. See the various definitions #1 here. The use of it in reference to magic is archaic.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
