Sparkle Style's 3rd Birthday! Time to Celebrate! Xx

So on 24/7/2014 it will be 
Sparkle Style's 3rd Birthday! Xx

On 24 July 2011 Our Editor Jenny Palmer
wrote the very first post - the Legendary
Chanel Mimosa about her Nail Varnish Cupboard:

Very soon afterward she met Lara Stone 
at the CK Shock Launch
Party at the roof garden at 
Shoreditch House where incidentally 
Lara and David Walliams had got married.

Sparkle Style is now linked to which is a site
inspired by our travels and adventures.

Nevis and the Cayman Islands, small caribbean paintings decorated 
with Swarovski Crystals, and choose from a small selection of couture T Shirts
with hand sewn ribbon and button decoration.
