HELLO, from the blog!

Hi, friends!

I have been absent (very absent) on social media and the blog these past weeks. As you may already know from Instagram, I was backpacking in beautiful Italy for the summer. When I travel, I really like to immerse myself with all of the new sights, smells, and culture. With this, I prefer to disconnect from online activity, just to really take it all in! As I’ve mentioned before, I am very committed to living my best life and for me, that means knowing how to properly balance my online/offline time. In a world like the one we live in today, this often translates as not being a dedicated blogger. As much as I’d like to share everything with my readers, sometimes it’s the most authentic when I am not forcing content or post deadlines. I hope you understand…

I am in my second year of undergraduate studies. It’s a lot harder this year juggling school and life (maybe a post about that soon?), but I’m learning so much in both realms. I’m currently going through mid-term exams (PRAY FOR ME), but I am going to try to post about my travel experiences in Italy. In the meantime, feel free to contact me on Instagram or e-mail if you want to connect. xo

Much love!

A Sparkly Introduction

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hi, lovelies! Welcome to my first ever blog post on The Sparkle Style. Let me start off by saying how excited I am to finally introduce TSS. I have wanted to create this blog for many years, and I decided 2017 was the year I would finally step out of my comfort zone and make it happen. My plan is for the blog to focus on self-love through beauty, style, and travel.

I thought that for my first blog post, and my first post for 2017, that I would shower my readers in all the sparkly magic that is NEW YEARS EVE. I am a sucker for anything drenched in sparkles AND/or sequins, which is why it makes perfect sense to introduce the blog to you guys with a New Years post.

I’m not a fan of large crowds, which is why I always opt to bring in the new year with my family. Dressing up to the nines with loved ones and sipping on wine (or knocking back tequila shots), is my favourite way to spend new years eve. I imagine a lot of blogs showcasing 2017 posts with much to say on resolutions, tips on being a better person, and inspirational reflections…..which is why I will not be talking about any of these things right now. It’s not that these things don’t matter (duh), I just don’t want to begin blogging with a generic post.

Because my priorities are spot on, I’d like to move on and bask in all the WHITE SWAN princess glory that is THIS dress:

I’ve had this little number tucked away for too long. Seeing how I haven’t yet become a famous figure skater, I thought I might as well take the dress out for a spin…

   So, that’s it. Post numero uno! What did you guys get up to on NYE? I look forward to meeting and getting to know my readers so please introduce yourself to me in the comments section below if you love merlot, free vacations, and laughing at your own jokes.

xo, Nikole
