I’m a 30-something Canadian fashion blogger based in Edmonton, Alberta. Edmonton can be a freezing cold and dark place (ok, I’m being a BIT dramatic) for many months of the year, so let me tell you – the blogging struggle is real when natural lighting is hard to come by! Fortunately, the shopping options here are endless. 😁 I grew up on Prince Edward Island, (on Canada’s East Coast) and reluctantly left the beautiful ocean behind to become a Prairie girl after graduate school. No regrets though – I wouldn’t have the amazing life I have now without coming to Edmonton!
I balance blogging with working full time as a Business Consultant and being the best mom I can be to my adorable seven year old son. Sometimes I balance things really well; other times, I’m wracked with mom guilt and suck at it all. Life is extremely busy, but more amazing that I could ever have imagined and family is everything.
Why Sparkles, Lace & Sequins?
I’ve always been drawn to pretty things – sometimes they have sparkles (like the bag above), but more often they don’t. It really all started with a pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes that I snagged on major sale three years ago at Holt Renfrew and it grew from there. Those sparkly shoes inspired me to share my love of fashion and beauty on Instagram initially, and then here on the blog and other social media sites. I sometimes think of rebranding, but Sparkles, Lace & Sequins is also a reflection of my personality. My love of sparkly, sequined things mirrors my extroverted side – the side that loves to be involved in everything around her; while the lace represents the quieter, more reflective aspects of my personality – the side that wants to sit in bed and ignore the world around me with a good book or movie.
I love hearing from my readers, so if you have time, I’d appreciate it so much if you shared your thoughts in the comment section. I hope you enjoy visiting Sparkles, Lace & Sequins as much as I love creating it.
As a fashion blogger, I work with affiliate advertising programs. This means that if you click on an affiliate link on the blog or on my social media sites (such as Instagram and Twitter) and make a purchase, I receive a small commission from that purchase. I also collaborate with a number of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle companies and sometimes receive items for review purposes (you can read more about this and how to work with me on the Collaborations & PR page). In all cases, the opinions expressed on my blog and social media sites are my own.
