Glitter Guide Style at Home

glitter guide sarah sherman samuel Did you guys get a chance to see my Style at Home feature over on Glitter Guide yesterday? I was so happy when they asked me to participate because I knew that we were moving soon and I thought it would be a great way to say goodbye to the house. Of course I have taken photos of our home myself but have never had anyone else shoot it. I loved seeing it through someone else’s eyes (especially that of the talented Jessie Webster). I also shared a bit about my background, some more on A Sunny Afternoon and Smitten Studio, and how they all overlap.

Amanda on Glitter Guide

amanda dawbarn // glitter guideHave you guys seen the Glitter Guide feature on Amanda Dawbarn of 100 Layer Cake that went up this week? I had the pleasure of contributing with some of the styling which was easy peasy because Amanda has so many amazing pieces in her home. I had also been wanting to work with the photographer Jessie Webster for sometime, so it was a great surprise to find out she was going to be shooting it.

Amanda and I met last year and became fast friends. When answering “how do you sparkle?” in the interview she replies “by encouraging and inspiring others to find what they are meant to do”, and Lord knows that in just the last year, while swapping stories, doing some heavy crafting, and getting lost in parking garages together, she has done exactly that for me. So, go check out the entire Glitter Guide feature and get to know 1 of the 3 ladies behind 100 Layer Cake a little better.

Happy Friday!

Photography: Jessie Webster
Styling: Amanda with assistance from Sarah Sherman Samuel and Jillian Clark
Hair and makeup: Fiore Beauty
Florals: Julianne de Silva

instagram 2012 & glitter guide


instagram heart 2012 sarah sherman samuel
I woke up to such a lovely surprise this past wednesday. Glitter Guide had picked their Top 20 Instagram Accounts to follow and I was one of them! My phone was lighting up like a Christmas tree with all of the IG notifications. :)

It was great to see some of my favorite users selected as well like @bonnie, @sittinginatree, @amanda100lc, and @pennyweight and perfect to find a few new must follows like @alice_gao and @eatsleepwear.

Seeing the feature had me scrolling through my feed to remind myself what I have been documenting. What I love about instagram is that it holds all your captured moments in one place and at the end of the year you have a little pocket full of memories. So, I pulled out about 100 of my favorite instagrammed moments from the year to remind myself of what great things we got up to in 2012.

Thanks Glitter Guide!
