This is my middle name. I control everything in my life, and I’m an insane perfectionist. I like to be in charge of my own life, right down to the nitty gritty details. My expectations are incredibly high. It works as an advantage as well as a disadvantage for me. I trust myself, and only myself.
The holiday season is a time for reflection. We reflect upon the year that passed, remembering the good, as well as the bad, and most likely wondering what the coming year will bring. It’s a mix, of memories isn’t it? Mine is too. With everything life throws at you, it builds character, challenges you, and more often than not, changes you.
Oh, hey there, sequined superstars! We made it! “New Year, New You,” right? Scratch that, babes. I want you to take on this year as the same, you! Why? Because you’re already fabulous, and I don’t want you to forget that. No need for a “new you.” But, let’s kick up our heels a bit shall we? Throw some glitter in the the air, like ya just don’t care. I want you to take time, and actually celebrate your life.
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.
National Lipstick Day has come and gone (who knew that existed?), and I regret the fact the I did not throw a lavish lipstick soirée for all of you beauties, here on Sleepless in Sequins. Rest assured, the day celebrating vibrant lip color has not been forgotten. So we will celebrate today.
Waking up in Vegas, I always feel a bit of a thrill. We were on a quick vaca for a few days, and stayed at The Signature Suites at MGM Grand hotel. In Vegas, you never know what to expect. I guess that’s what makes it fun. Everything seems so spontaneous to me. The restaurants, pools, and hotels are beyond extravagant and life is full of overindulgence. The whole Vegas strip feels like a giant adult playground. Go big, or go home, right?
Fitness is a huge part of my daily routine. I recently began exploring new fitness classes, though the incredible program, ClassPass. For a monthly fee, ClassPass allows members to explore new fitness studios thoughout the city.
I always pack my bag for my busy days which include running to work, fitness classes, and post work events or parties. Here are several of my must-have products I keep in my gym bag. I hope you’ll give these a try. Feel free to share a few of your own favorite products with us as well.
Team Sleepless in Sequins took a quick trip to Las Vegas last week for a photography conference right before New York Fashion Week. While in Vegas, we stayed at the fabulous Delano Hotel at Mandalay Bay, which recently opened. We originally fell in love with the Delano in Miami Beach, so we decided to check out the new hotel in Vegas, hoping for the same experience.
I was beyond impressed. The boutique hotel felt sleek, chic, and purely glamorous. The decor was modern and swanky. As I walked down the dark hallway, I walked passed a wall of gorgeous, glimmering mirrors. Even the scent of the place was incredible. The feeling in Vegas can be crazy and chaotic, however, this hotel felt luxurious, sophisticated, and peaceful at the same time. I fell in love with the decor, the cute coffee shop, swanky Franklin Bar, and the lovely dining options. White roses in perfect vases were displayed around the space as well.
