So here I am….after months of planning, procrastinating, stressing, being angry at my computer, and more procrastinating, the page is finally here!
I am so excited to share my love of style, fashion, and all things pretty with you all. But truthfully, if you had told me a year ago that I would be setting up a style blog and opening myself up like this, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. The journey to sharing my thoughts, advice, and favourite pretty things started in a very inconspicuous way – with a pair of beautiful shoes that I bought (on sale!) in January. They were the inspiration, first for my Instagram blog, and then for sparkleslaceandsequins.com.
While I may not wear them every day, they are my signature piece because they led me towards doing something that makes me happy. Not only were they the last pair and on sale, they generated so much talk about my love of fashion among my friends, family, and co-workers that it inspired me to start sharing this love with everyone. From there, the journey has already exceeded my expectations and I cannot wait to see where it takes me next!
You can expect to see my musings on all things pretty here, including personal style, fashion, favourite beauty products, home decor, and lifestyle ideas. I also love getting inspiration and ideas from other style-lovers and bloggers and look forward to hearing from you to learn and to gain ideas to refine my style, which is a constantly evolving thing.
I take all of my own pictures, unless I can convince my very tolerant (and of course, tech savvy) four-year-old to take a few snaps. Occasionally, I can convince my friends to help out as well (though it usually involves some eye rolling!).
But in all honesty, I have been blessed to have the support and encouragement of my amazing friends and family as I embark on this journey and for that, I am so very grateful.
Your love and support mean so much. And to those of you just joining me, thank you being a part of Sparkles, Lace & Sequins!
Enjoy the pretty things in life,
