Today is Bows & Sequins’ 4th birthday. Crazy, right?! I can’t believe I’ve been posting in this little corner of the internet for four whole years. I still remember the night I started it, the first email I received from a sweet reader, the day it turned one, the very first time someone on the street told me that they loved my blog, the first time I took outfit photos, the first time I took outfit photos with a tripod, the days it turned two and three, the first time I worked with a brand I loved, the first time I met a “blog friend” in real life … I could go on and on. It’s not just ‘a blog’ to me, Bows & Sequins truly is an extension of my life. I mean, this blog has been around longer than any boyfriend I’ve ever had, which might not be saying a lot, but you get the idea. 😉
I’ve made so many memories, life-long friends, and have gotten to experience so many unbelievable things because of Bows & Sequins. I feel like I was looking for “my thing” my entire life until I created this blog. And now I truly feel like I’ve hit my stride and have something that I’m insanely passionate about. I can’t even express how fortunate I feel on a daily basis! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for checking in every day and following along. Thank you for every single one of your comments and emails. Thank you one million times over! xoxo
Now, what’s a birthday without some sparkle?! Today’s gift guide is definitely fit for a celebration. I created today’s gift guide with the glitter girl in mind. Whether it’s you, your best friend, your niece, your mom, your cousin, or someone else I’m forgetting — If she loves sparkle, this gift guide is for her!

Honorable mention that I found after I made this collage? These MZ Wallace Bag Tassel Charms. So fun for dressing up your MZ metro totes!
And a few notes about the products above…
I got a sample of Joico’s Gold Dust Spray during fashion week and it’s prettyyyyy awesome, especially for the holidays! (And I actually packed it for my last Vegas trip, too. When in Rome.. Or, well, Vegas.) It’s a finishing spray that has a really light hold… and is packed with shine and shimmer. It’s a really pretty rose gold color in my blonde hair… I’m obsessed! It’s so subtle, but when the light hits your hair it’s kind of magical. It’s great for a glitzy holiday party and definitely made for New Years Eve. And obviously, the perfect stocking stuffer for the sparkle lover in your life!
I also have the pictured coasters, eyeshadow, sneakers, and necklace. From one glitter girl to the next, I can highly recommend them all. 🙂
