About Me


I’m 23 years old and have been a professional hair and makeup artist in Houston for the last 6 years.

I have a degree in Visual Arts, and I love all things creative. (Especially when it comes to fashion!)

I’m married to the goofiest, cutest guy in the world. He makes my life.

We recently got a Siberian husky. He brings so much fluffy joy. I absolutely adore him.

I am a true believer in God, love, confidence, compassion, and the power of true kindness.

I have a massive family. (Massive, meaning 8 crazy, wonderful siblings.)

So, why “Sequin Socks”? To me, fashion is all about what makes you feel awesome- even if other people don’t get it or can’t see it! If everyone had the same taste, life would be a lot less interesting. So wear what you want to wear! (Also, sequin socks should be a thing.)

Have a lovely day, and make someone else’s lovely while you’re at it!
