poshfest photo booth

That time I help put on PoshFest and spoke on a panel.
Before I say “bye Felicia” to 2014, I wanted to share some of my favorite moments of the year, many not yet featured within Sparkle Meets Pop’s virtual pages. It’s tough, however, to capture a year in posts, pictures or songs. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of words: achievement, heart, bonds, goodbyes, growth, adventure and sass. Yes, friends, there’s always sass. People are known to get down on themselves and resolve to be better. I’m confident from my past that each day gets better, so I feel a mixture of hope, excitement and peace for the days to come.

For kicks, I thought I’d share my top five posts of 2014:

  1. Green Blue, High Low
  2. This Is 30
  3. Brunching With The Best
  4. #HowWeWear: Black & White
  5. Business Lion

But wait, there’s more. The SMP love fest continues with a year-ending playlist to share with you. Much of this is what I have been listening to for the past few months, but have yet to share. May these jams be a way to have a safe, healthy and happy New Year. Thank you so much for reading.

That time I impulsively booked a much-needed stay at the St. Regis Princeville.

That time I shared a love of old movies with friends, and thought for a few seconds thought that maybe, just maybe that the Titanic wouldn’t sink and the movie would have a happy ending.

That time I held hands with Matt LeBlanc. Just kidding! Or am I…?

All those times we went to the park for wine, people watching and basking in the glorious San Francisco sun.

That time I raised a shot of whiskey and said cheers to this truth.

Those times I looked out my window, gazed at the Golden Gate Bridge and was in awe.

That time I shamelessly ordered piña coladas all day on the beach in a leopard print bikini.

Those times I was brave, driven, unstoppable and smiling.



What? A playlist on Tuesday? Yes, because you should be moving and grooving throughout the week. This set of tunes is inspired by my recent foray into legitimate working out. I had always avoided exercising indoors on machines, but this is different. There are lights, fun instructors and some dope beats, y’all. It’s to the point that I now sometimes feel the need to “dance” in a cyclical motion to songs, as if I were in spin class.  So, spin with me, friends!
