Tell me more about yourself?
I’m Ms. Chatty Pants and could talk all day. Instead, here are 26 things you probably didn’t know about me. If you already knew more than 10 of these things before reading this post, then we may be BFFs already!
I love the name of your blog. How did you come up with it?
I have a nostalgic relationship with colorful makeup. My first experiences with makeup (when I was 13) consisted of blue eyeshadow, green roller-ball glitter, and ruby red lipstick. I’ve always felt pretty in makeup, not because of how it makes me look, but how it allows me to express myself creatively.
Through the years I’ve realized that color lives in all facets of my life and goes was beyond my makeup bag. From rich prints in fabrics to the beautiful colors of the mystic Northen Lights, I believe in living a life inspired by the colors of the world.
Who takes your pictures?
I take most of the photos on my blog. When I need a helping hand my (ahem..Instagram) my husband will help me capture my photos as well as my friend and amazing photographer Sam Evans. Any photos that are not by me or my hubs are credited within the post.
How do you keep your Instagram feed so colorful?
My Instagram feed is my pride and joy. It is VERY curated because I want to it be a place that inspires and brings joy when you arrive on my feed. I plan out my posts in the A Color Story app and sometimes use it to edit my photos. I also use Lightroom to edit my photos in a cohesive way.
Where do you live?
I currently live in Seattle, Washington. I’m originally from South Florida and also spent some time living in New York City.
Your dogs are so big! What kind of dogs are they?
My furkids are both Dobermans. Diesel (the one with the pointy ears) is my bog boy weighing in at over 100 pounds. He’s full of personality and loves to make appearances in my photos. Gia (with the floppy ears) is my pretty girl. She’s very sweet, regal, and prefers cuddles over camera time.
How can I collaborate with you?
I’m always interested in hearing about opportunities to collaborate with brands, as well as other influencers. Please just send me an email at Sahily@prettyinpigment.com with what you have in mind and I would love to chat with you about it.
