Eight years ago, I met a boy from Kentucky. Call it chance, call it coincidence, or call it serendipity, but he walked into my life and chose to stick around all of these years. I’m sure glad he did. The day we met, I could’ve sworn to you that we had absolutely nothing in common. We were as opposite as could be. We met online and he flew here to visit me from Kentucky. Little did I know, that I would spend years traveling back and forth, during our long distance relationship, and eventually he’d become my Instagram husband (and my real one too).
Yep! Hello, ice cream! It was 9am on Saturday morning, when I walked into my favorite gelato cafe, Paciugo, while on our vaca in St. Pete. I’m pretty sure I was the only girl at the crack of dawn, ordering a triple scoop cone of gelato with sprinkles. “Hi sir. I’ll have a waffle cone with 3 scoops, please. I’d like the violet (because it’s purple, obviously), next the mint chip (because it’s green), and then the strawberry (because it’s pink). Oh, and I’d like them scooped in that order. Don’t forget the extra sprinkles. Thanks!” He gave me the strangest look, while all of his other normal customers ordered their morning coffee. Why the specific colors, you ask? Well, for photos of course! It had to coordinate with the outfit, #lifeofablogger. We think about these things.
This month we celebrate three glorious years since the launch of our style site, Sleepless in Sequins. It is a love and passion project, combining our skills of fashion and photography. Looking back on the past three years, reminds me of where we started, as well as how far we’ve come. You can measure success in numbers, clicks, or dollars, however to us, it’s about the journey. It’s our endless road that we’ve paved, and we walk this one together.
With the sunny, start of Spring, comes the legendary music festival, Coachella, which takes place this weekend in Palm Springs, California. Music fans swarm in from all over the map, just to catch a glimpse of their favorite bands, jam to their favorite beats, and basically party their pants off, while soaking in the sunshine.
No, I don’t mean those melons! (But, we’ve got those too.) I’m talking about the hottest spring and summer accessories of the season! You may be jetting off to some sunny destination sometime soon, and you won’t want to leave these behind. They are the fanciest floats you can find, and they are the perfect addition to your spring or summer pool party.
Spring is finally here…#celebrationstation! Although, it doesn’t feel like it in NYC, you may be out and about shopping for an upcoming Spring vacation. I’ve been running around the city, doing the same. However, I’ll admit, that I’ve found it quite the challenge to find a great selection of swimwear while shopping the stores this week. It’s definitely been frustrating, as I’m running out of time. Lucky for you, I’ve found a fabulous selection of swimwear pieces for you to order online.
That’s right! We’re talking about one of the season’s hottest trends. Strappy design details are everywhere you look from street style, to evening gowns, as well as lingerie pieces.
This past Sunday, we celebrated the first day of Spring, with a forecast of snow. Lovely, right? However the sun was shining throughout the weekend, and so I definitely made the most of it. Last week, was crazy with my work schedule, but we did attend a fab magazine launch party for Reserved Magazine x J. Elster pop-up shop. It was hosted by super model and photographer Helena Christensen, model and actress, Brooke Shields, along with film maker and designer Jennifer Elster. I promised myself that I’d hibernate over the weekend, in hopes of getting lots of sleep, a few great workouts, and some cleaning accomplished. Quite the opposite of my plans, it was a jam packed weekend, but full of fun.
Hello, Beauties. As a kickstart to your weekend, I thought I’d share a few favorite products that I’ve discovered lately. These are sure to add a pep in your step, and some sunshine to your day. We could all use a bit of that…am I right? Happy shopping and Happy Friday! Wishing you a lovely weekend.
The sun is shining in NYC, it’s a bit brighter out, and you know what that means? It’s time to transition your wardrobe as well! I know it still may feel a bit too chilly, but I’m telling you to do it! Free yourself from the black winter abyss, otherwise known as your winter closet. Pull out your white denim jeans, pair it with a spring blouse or outerwear piece and it will refresh your look in an instant.
