Sequins and Sea Breezes: Cupcakes & Champagne

Cupcakes & Champagne

11/18/2014

 
I honestly cannot believe it's been a full year since I started my blog! I remember when I first started planning my blog I was excited, scared, and nervous and now I can't imagine not having it. I've met so many amazing people through my blog, friends who I would have never met if I hadn't started this journey and blog friends who have become in real life friends that I cherish every day. There are so many days that I wish all of us lived in the same city so we could all meet up for drinks or brunch but I'll take getting to talk to you all through e-mail happily!

 
Unfortunately I was a bad blogger and had planned on doing a big giveaway for my one year anniversary but life got in the way and it snuck up on me quicker than I planned. For those who have been following my blog for awhile you know the past month has been a bit chaotic for me and hopefully things will start to settle down for me soon and I can get back into the swing of a normal life. Since I failed to do a fun giveaway I just really wanted to thank you guys for supporting me, for reading my blog and commenting, for helping me smile when I'm feeling down, and for becoming the great friends you guys have become! I appreciate you all so much, without you guys I probably would have wanted to give up blogging more than once! Ok, so enough with the sappy stuff before I cry!  
 
Since my blog IS called Sequins & Sea Breezes I thought it was fitting that I rock the sequins on my one year blogiversary! I've been obsessed with sequin leggings for awhile so I was super excited when I found these. I really wanted to keep it simple and classic so I went with the all black look with a bold lip.
