five things with sequins & stripes

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned how much I love this series, but I do, a lot. I, like you, am learning so many fun things about my favorite bloggers.

Today we have the lovely Liz from Sequins & Stripes and if you haven’t heard of her you’ve obviously been living under a rock. If I could, I would live in her closet. That is the truth. She has amazing style, is absolutely beautiful, and here’s the kicker: she owns her own styling business!

1. Somewhere in the depths of my soul, I have this feeling that I am meant to own a bakery. I haven’t let this little voice speak too often, but maybe in my next life I will fulfill my love of coffee, croissants, cupcakes, macarons, and homemade donuts by opening up a little shop of my own!

2. I have {and still sleep with! omg} a stuffed animal. He is a polar bear and his name is Polie, he has been with me since the day I was born and is a part of my family {seriously, my parents worry about him like a child}. He doesn’t look like a stuffed animal anymore, sorta like a polar bear pancake. Dave {my boyfriend} hates it so much! I can’t believe I just told you that.
3. I am really impatient and I think it is such a terrible quality. 

4. When I first started offering my styling services to clients, I was terrified. I would start sweating and I’m sure all of them thought I was completely awkward and like “wtf is she doing as a stylist?” I’m happy to say that I’ve found my confidence, thank god!
5. When I was younger, I was an American Girl Doll model. I would do fashion shows, dress in colonial outfits, and sign autographs. Haha, that was weird.

Seriously, she’s a celebrity! Do you know any former American Girl Doll models? I surely don’t. Go visit Liz and tell her how much you enjoyed #2 like I did. I have a Fievel, yes the American Tail. He lives at home with my parents because apparently “grown women sleep with men and not stuffed animals” or some b.s. like that.

    This makes me feel incredibly better about my stuffed panda family. Because clearly I would have a family of stuffed pandas. And an American Girl model? That was my dream. I had Samantha.

    I love this series because I love finding new bloggers that aren’t in “my circle”. I don’t know how I had not heard of her. The American Doll Model? Probably the coolest thing I’ve ever heard.

    holy crap christin, every week the blogger you feature tops the last. liz: i legitimately laughed out loud when i read about polie- i’ve got a similar thing going on and my poor boyfriend is wondering why he is dating a 24 year old going on 4. perfect. love the american girl doll fact too- way too awesome.

    Haha, I have a sad story about my stuffed animal. When I moved back home from living with my dad in California he called to tell me that their dog found it under my old bed and he hopes I don’t mind, but the dog is using it as a toy. It got destroyed. My dad had no idea how much meaning it had to me. I was pissed.

    Anyway, loved reading about Liz! Still loving this series!

    Oh my gosh Liz. That is hilarious that you were an American Doll Model. Love your style so much and of course love both of your blogs!

    Love this! Especially #2. I definitely will be letting out a very similar dirty secret on Monday. But hey, my husband married me knowing full well that I may or may not sleep with my baby blanket. So there is hope. :)

    Just found your blog and you are hilarious!! I can’t wait to read more, and am most definitely a new follower now!
