My Story | Why I Started Sequins & Satin

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.

I need to start way back to the beginning of what changed me into who I am today and what I am both thankful for as well as frustrated about every day of my life. When I was about 12 years old I started getting these horrible stomach pains. At first I thought I just had a stomach bug but then months went by and it wasn’t getting any better.

I’ve been diagnosed with many things & tried countless remedies but fast forward to today, they still can’t figure out what is causing the pain.

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 and I have found ways to make it not hurt quite so much all the time.

But even with that being said, as anyone with chronic pain knows it can get really depressing at times to not know how to get rid of it or even what it is that you’re trying to get rid of.

So in my freshman year of high school I was extremely sad, I had nothing I could do to take my mind off of my stomach and couldn’t find anything I felt truly passionate about.

Once covid-19 hit I went to online school and I decided why not start a blog, 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 around June I was accepted into rewardstyle (an affiliate marketing program – the back end of LIKEtoKNOW.it) and I started making a few bucks here and there.

So now a yearish 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 – all thanks to my wonderfully terrible stomach.
