My name is Kirstin and I’m so glad to see you here on Styled by Sequins blog. This is the place where you’ll find a southern, classy, teacher style with a dash of sequins of course. You’ll find other topics ranging from all things marriage, travel, faith, inspiration and just life. I hope what you find on Styled by Sequins will bring sparkle to your life and others around you too.
The story behind Styled by Sequins started unexpectedly. For the longest time I wanted to start a website. I was unsure what that might look like, where it be a place where I share my passions of teaching and fitness or what it would be. One day I just had a special calling, which all started when Colin and I received a “professional” camera for Christmas. That casual photoshoot turned into more and more shoots with my husband. Pretty soon I had started a blog!
At this point, fashion blogging had already started and really emerged. However, nothing like it has got to right now. Looking back, I am so glad I started when I did. Fashion was my primary focus when I started, now it’s really developed into other categories of fitness, marriage, travel and faith.
Needless to say, with continued prayers and following my passions, I love blogging and all it has offered. It has opened up so many new adventures, experiences, and relationships.
Blogging is not my full time job. I call myself a blogger by night and Kindergarten teacher by day. It’s the perfect balance of two worlds. It keeps me busy, but I love it. During the summer, I spend a huge amount of that time working on the blog and living that “full time blogger” life. There’s nothing more I love than being able to share all my passions with you through Styled by Sequins blog.
Meaning behind the blog
Styled by Sequins blog started from a simple thought, “Leave a little bit of sparkle wherever you go.” Sparkle in this sense doesn’t literally mean the sparkle from nail polish or the sparkle you decorate with. For me, the act of leaving sparkle is more of a glimmer of kindness wherever you go.
Growing up, I was the girl who loved playing dress up and loved anything sparkly. I believe that dressing up to make yourself shine helps a girl feel confident, which gives her the power to take on the world. When readers read Styled by Sequins, I hope my content can empower women to shine in their own skin and always leave a little bit of sparkle.
I believe in spreading kindness like throwing sequins everywhere and with whatever you do. It can be as simple as giving back to the community, giving grace to others like God does to us, putting others before self, or giving a compliment. Leaving your mark of kindness is something makes a difference in the world. When you do, you feel good about YOU! I mean who doesn’t like a little bit of sparkle sequins?
As I write, I hope you are empowered to spread sparkle wherever you go! Thank you for reading Styled by Sequins. Because of you, spreading the love for sparkle is possible.
Love from Texas,
