VIDEO: Welcome to Sassy Red Lipstick

i am soooo excited to share with you the launch of my official Sassy Red Lipstick intro video!

i’ve been wanting to make a video like this for quite some time now, and thanks to my creative husband & the talented Corbin Ballard, we finally made it a reality! this video tells my story of how SRL came to be: where my love for fashion came from, why i decided to start my blog, how Robbie plays such a huge role in all this, my self-love and body positivity journey, and of course my appreciation for all of you!

believe it or not, we shot this in a whirlwind 24 hours all over my favorite spots in San Francisco! it was a crazy, non-stop day, but so fun. Corbin was such a good sport and we became fast friends. the finished product speaks for itself!

in the future, you can find this video here on my blog on my ABOUT page and also on my YouTube channel. in the coming year we are going to be creating more YouTube content consistently, so stayed tuned. can’t wait to post more videos!

below i’m listing out where each outfit was shot and of course all the outfit details. would love to know what you think about my video! comment below! thanks for watching! xx

    I love this. I love seeing your confidence, love for all things & your #1 support, Robbie. You are seriously what I want my nieces and future daughter to look up to a confident woman who is accepted of herself and a dream catcher. Can’t wait to see what you come up with on your youtube channel. ?

    I love everything about this video! Your outfits are all perfect, your lipstick is on point but what stood out the most is your personality and what this blog is about. I admire you so much, you inspire me to break out of my shell a little more each day. I am not as comfortable in my own skin as I encourage every woman to be and I think that it’s held me back so much both in life and with my blog. I take the words “Life is too short, so don’t waste any time, start loving yourself” with me today and I hope to come back soon and tell you all about how I finally implemented this in my daily life. THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO x
