My Story | Why I Started Sequins & Satin

My Story:

So I’ve loved fashion for awhile and I’m the friend that people ask for fashion advice yes, yes. But there’s so much more to the reason why I started Sequins & Satin than that so I thought why not share and hopefully this can help even just one of you.

It all starts with 12 year old Keira waking up one day with pelvic pain (which I’ve since learned is something called endometriosis) that hasn’t gone away since. With this pelvic pain came anxiety and depression. I’ve been struggling with these issues for over 7 years now and I’ve learned so much.

Chronic pain and mental health issues can be so debilitating, they can make you feel helpless and meaningless. This is exactly what happened to me and nothing felt interesting anymore.

Now this isn’t me trying to make you feel bad for me. As much as it sucks I’ve accepted that it’s part of my life.

During the pandemic I was suddenly given all this extra time, I wasn’t sure what to do with it but then I decided why not start a blog to share about my fashion advice!

So my mom (who is a web designer – hmmm, I wonder where I got that from) helped me get my domain name of sequinsandsatin and I was on my way.

I started blogging and immediately FELL IN LOVE! Every aspect from the writing to the designing makes me feel like my heart is glowing.

Then I was accepted into LTK (an affiliate marketing program) and I started making a few bucks here and there. Which I didn’t even realize was possible lol.

So now two or so years later here I am making a steady monthly income (thanks to all of you who purchase through my links – THANK YOU! You truly have no idea how much it means to me to help you feel confident with everything you wear), sharing what I love, and finally happy!

P.S if you are looking to join LTK, send me an email at and I can help to refer you!
