Hi, welcome to modern sequins. A little blog dedicated to 2 of my obsessions, modern design and a closet full of sequins. Enjoy. xo, Myka

new year, new food.

Happy Monday!  As we head into this new year, I've been making an effort to spend time in a new place, the kitchen.  Uh huh, you heard that right.  Last year I made a few soups and simple appetizers.  Now, don't get to thinking that I'm gonna get all crazy and whip up some 5 course dinner...yay, not gonna happen.  But I do plan on making even more of an effort on making meals this year.  Please do remember though, a cheese plate to me is totally a reasonable meal, so I'm starting out slow and these below dishes are giving me major inspiration.

new year's sparkle.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  I got to snuggle my niece and nephews which was the highlight for me.  And now I am looking forward to New Year's Eve.  I mean, not like I need another excuse to wear sequins, but hey it is an excuse to buy a new shiny outfit.  Right?!?  Here are a few looks that I've been eyeing.

happy holidays!

So, just when I got back into the blogging swing, the holidays crept up on me, and it's time to take another little break.  I will be back later this week to share some more inspiration and ummmmm maybe some new year's eve dresses that I've been eyeing.  Wishing you all a very happy holiday from my little family to yours.  {here's a look at last year's minty celebration.}




Blogging two days in a row?  I am back in action people.  And so excited to share everthing that I've been working on during my blog hiatus.  So, here's a fun project I worked on a bit ago.  I created the decor for Blogshop in San Francisco, alongside Danielle's beautiful florals.  Bri is so creative, so it was amazing to make some fun decor for her class.  I created some "florals to go" boxes that truly became one of my favorite projects ever.  Danielle made the most beautiful arragements and I felt that at the end of day, they should go home with each blogshop student...thus the "to go" boxes.  I also made some fun gold leaf head wraps for each student to wear. {Stay tuned, as I plan on making more that will be up for sale in the future.}  I adorned the front entrance with gold-leafed feathers.  And lastly, I designed a big backdrop for photos, which Danielle adorned with the most gorgeous blooms.  Truly one of my fave projects that I've worked on to date.

white like a unicorn.

What what, I'm actually blogging again.  Yes, I am back.  Sorry for the radio silence, but I've been a bit busy over here.  I am so excited to share some projects that I have been working on.  First off, is this amazing shoot I styled along with Tori for Glitter Guide!  We kind of went completely over the top and created this whimisical wonderland filled with lots of texture and you know, some sparkly unicorns.  I mean, it's pretty much what our glittery dreams are made of.  Check out more on Glitter Guide.
