#SbySTurns1 Celebration

Now that a few weeks have passed and my stress levels have gone (somewhat) back to normal, I can finally share with you all of the details from the #SbySTurns1 celebration!

Before this, I had never planned a party of this size, and although it was so much harder than I expected, I was lucky enough to work with some of the most amazing people in the Bay Area who were able to make my brunch dreams come true. I honestly can’t thank everyone enough for all of the help and support I received in order to pull off this celebration. I am so, so grateful for each and every one of you.

Take a look at some of the details and photos from the party below! Continue reading



Weekly Web Edit – 3.26.17

Well hello there, it’s been awhile! This month has been insanely busy and if I’m being truthfully honest, there were things going on that were just more important than blogging. And that’s ok!

I was getting so stressed out having not posted in awhile, getting behind on work, and then someone asked me, “what happens if you don’t get a post up?” Nothing. Nothing happens because this is something I do for fun, for me, and no one is forcing me to do it.

Over the last month, my college friends came to visit, my sister came to visit, I celebrated #SbySTurns1 and I officially became a Thrive Market Ambassador! In case you haven’t heard about Thrive, it’s an online marketplace where you can get all of the best healthy foods at wholesale prices. I get all of my pantry staples and favorite items through Thrive, most of which I can’t find in stores near me. As a Thrive Ambassador, I’m happy to provide you with a free 30 day membership to try it out! In case you don’t know where to start, some of my favorites are: Eating Evolved Chocolate, Simple Mills Banana Bread Mix, Jillz Crackerz, Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil, Yumbutter Cashew Butter, and Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee.

Anyway, here’s everything on the internet you need to read, shop, listen to, and more this week:

Styled by Skylar Turns 1!

One year ago today I launched Styled by Skylar, and what a year it has been. So let’s go back, back to the beginning…. (if you’re not singing that in Hilary Duff’s voice I don’t know if we can be friends.)

A year ago I was living in Charlottesville, Virginia, not loving what I was doing. I wanted to find a new job and break into the fashion & lifestyle world. But the problem was that I didn’t have any technical background in this field and didn’t feel like my work experience and portfolio up until that point proved that I knew fashion or even that it was an interest of mine.

shades of grey

In my closet you’ll find more than fifty shades of grey and black, including this comfy Topshop t-shirt dress and oversized cable-knit sweater. This out is my favorite way to mix up my usual jeans and a t-shirt look.

Weekly Web Edit 2.5.17

It feels like it has been forever since the last Weekly Web Edit! Over the past few weeks I have been trying to spend more time getting outside of my comfort zone, meeting up with friends and taking care of myself. To be honest, the last few weeks have been incredibly stressful and I needed a little break to really just take care of my mind and body.

And let’s be real, I’m human and still haven’t figured out a “blogging schedule” that I can actually stick to. Life gets in the way and things happen and sometimes I’m just too exhausted to blog at the end of the day. Sue me.

Anyway, I’m making it a goal for February to stick to posting regularly and really start tackling those long-term creative items on my to-do list. Because there are some pretty amazing things I want to have happen this year. Oh, and Styled by Skylar turns 1 in less than a month! Stay tuned for some super fun things  I’m working on to celebrate that milestone!

But in the meantime, here’s everything on the internet you need to read, shop, listen to, and more this week:

Weekly Web Edit – 1.14.17

I fully intended for there to be a new Weekly Web Edit last weekend, but Friday was my birthday. After trying uni for the first time (so good) and having some of the best sushi I’ve ever had, I drank entirely way too much. The next morning I woke up with the worst hangover of my life and thus spent the rest of the weekend attempting to recover. And then Monday I came down with the flu.

So there’s that.

Anyway, here’s everything on the internet you need to watch, read, shop, listen to, and more this week:
