Behind the Scenes
A New Writer… Welcome Sarah & Coco Bean!
Today is possibly THE most exciting day for me in Pretty Fluffy history. When I created Pretty Fluffy I set out to build a site that was a pretty resource for stylish dog owners wanting luxury dog products, fun projects and puppy eye candy…but I also wanted to create a joyous, embracing community of dog owners and animal lovers. Somewhere where people could break away for a few minutes each day and smile. Somewhere where dogs were considered part of the family and loved. So it brings me great pleasure today to say our little Pretty Fluffy family is growing!
With great delight I would like you to welcome Sarah Dickerson, a new monthly contributor on Pretty Fluffy. If you don’t already know, Sarah is the mastermind behind the jaw droppingly gorgeous blog, Chic Sprinkles. Sarah brings with her a talented knack for photography, DIY and design. With her heart meltingingly adorable sidekick, Coco Bean, I know this duo will be bring both the pretty and the fluffy to you in droves. So Pretty Fluffies, please join me in welcoming Sarah and Coco…
Sarah Dickerson is a visual designer and photographer from the Midwest who loves animals, all things English, rainy nights, cozy backyard gatherings, twinkling lights, and festive weddings. After graduating from design school and landing a corporate design job (not all that glamorous), she decided to take on blogging and started new freelance business, Chic Sprinkles. She found this as the perfect creative outlet in her spare time and it quickly became a big part of her life. Almost a year later, she is super happy to be teaming up with Pretty Fluffy and the amazing duo, Serena + Soda. Sarah currently lives on the Florida coast with her husband, Tanner, and her fluffy Shih Tzu, Coco Bean.
When I was little I wanted to be… a Mermaid working as zoologist and part time interior designer. I evidently had high expectations!
Most prized possession? My faith and health. I can’t get very far without either one.
Favourite holiday? Halloween! Everything fun happens in the fall.
Favourite movie? I have lots of favorites, but watching Runaway Bride and It’s Complicated always puts me in good spirits.
Favourite style icon? Can I have two? Kate Middleton and Olivia Palermo (minus the fur, tisk tisk!). They always know how to make sophisticated and classy look sexy without revealing too much.
My idea of a perfect day… A delicious brunch outside with my husband and our dog. Followed by driving though charming neighborhoods with the windows down, oohing, awwing, and pretending we can pick whichever one we want to live in. A picnic in the park, some window shopping and book browsing, and then retreating home to watch movies under the covers.
Words to Live By… Abby Larson, founder of Style Me Pretty, said this in a recent interview and I loved every word. “Breathe, my friend. You are not old, you are young. You are not a mess, you are normal. Extraordinary, perhaps. In the blink of an eye your life will change. And it will continue to change for decades to come. Enjoy it, embrace it… be grateful for the ride. You are not old, you are young. And faith will get you everywhere. Just you wait.”
ALSO – I just want to add how excited I am to be joining such a great blog and to have the opportunity not only to work with such an amazing and talented woman, but also to connect with all of her lovely readers. It is so great to be apart of a community that truly loves life and appreciates all living creatures, while having fun and looking fabulous! I’m very happy to be here, so thank you, Serena (and Soda too!).
It’s an absolute pleasure to have you on board Sarah. Welcome to you and Coco! Now Pretty Fluffies, make sure you stay tuned, because tomorrow we have Sarah’s first Pretty Fluffy post coming up…and believe me this is one Pretty Fluffy post you DO NOT want to miss! It literally blew me away. See you then!
