Where did you grow up?
I was so lucky to grew up in the most beautiful place ever, Carlsbad, California! A place where the sun always shines and the wind always smells like ocean salt. I was blessed (haha #blessed) to grow up in such a beautiful town just North of San Diego. My whole family still lives in Carlsbad but Colin and I go back as much as we can to visit.
What University did you attend?
I received my bachelors in Education from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska! People are surprised that I chose to attend school in Nebraska after being a native, Californian. I loved every bit of it, even the frightening days driving in the snow!
Where are you located now?
Colin and I are currently living in the suburbs of Fort Worth, in the town of Keller. We love our home and all the different & fun experiences we have had in the DFW area! I hope to dig in deeper with home decor on the blog!
How did you start blogging?
Growing up, I had a love for fashion and everything that had sequins or sparkles! (Hence where I got the name for the blog) I would always draw the outfits I would wear in my journal and it began to be something I loved. People would always ask me, “Where did I get my outfit?” and other questions like that. I have always had a love for creating cute outfits and of course shopping! It’s been a long time coming that I wanted to be a blogger. The thoughts of failing and people not enjoying my content was always a fear of mine. Then one day, I had the courage to believe in myself and my dreams to finally start my fashion and lifestyle blog. I’m also very lucky to have a supportive husband who helps with photography and business logistics for Styled by Sequins.
Why Styled by Sequins?
Let me fill you in… I love fashion and anything sparkly, so I came up with the name Styled by Sequins. I just have a love for style and sequins!
Do you blog full time?
No, I am not a full time blogger. My full time job is as a Kindergarten teacher for Grapevine Colleyville ISD at Colleyville Elementary School. (I work at the BEST school in DFW) I love teaching and the rewarding feeling I get when I leave work everyday. Most days are exhausting, but I know that what I do each day will make an impact on the kiddos, even at such a young age.
What camera do you use for your blog photos?
We shoot all the photos with two cameras. We use a Canon EOS Rebel T6 and a Sony a6000. Having two cameras really captures the images so differently, so its fun to shoot with both. For videos, we use either the go-pro or the Sony to capture the video coverage.
Who takes your pictures?
I’m pretty lucky that my husband, Colin, does all my photography for Styled by Sequins. He sure has become a good little photographer! #InstagramHusband
Here and there I have an amazing inter who will take some of the pictures as well too!
