Talk Derby To Me

April 25, 2016
DSC_7493

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).

I Scream, You Scream…

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.

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.
