Meet Sami from Sparkle & Shine!

Today’s post is about one of the wonderful ladies I met through my membership in Alpha Delta Pi, Sami!  

Sami blogs over at Sparkle and Shine and has been so incredibly helpful on my blogging journey thus far.  We met several months ago when Sami contacted me about doing a review of a hair bow from my Etsy shop on her blog.  After I checked out her review, I got really curious about blogging.  When I decided to start my own blog,  she gave me excellent advice about starting-up and answered all of my silly questions.

Long story short, we’ve been blogging-sistas ever since!  Sami is sweet, ambitious, involved, and down to earth.  Her blog really communicates how genuine she is, which is why I enjoy reading it.  In just the few months that I’ve known Sami, I’ve seen her accomplish several of her goals – goals in her blogging life, her sorority life, as well as her personal life.  I have no doubt that she will accomplish anything she puts her mind to in the future!  The fact that we are ADPI sisters and great resources for one another means a lot to me, even if we are on opposite sides of the country.

You will be seeing her face on my sidebar for quite some time!  So without futher ado, meet Sami:

“Hello, Pretties!

My name is Sami and I blog over at Sparkle and Shine.  I began my lifestyle blog, which follows my life as a 20 year old sorority woman, in the summer of 2013 after attending a journalism conference in the beautiful New York City. With the hopes of making it in the Big Apple one day, this Jersey girl took it upon herself to take all of the lessons learned at the conference and create a blog.

Through each and every post, I make sure to show off the true me. Many of my posts are about my life as an Alpha Delta Pi sister, about being a philanthropist, a college female, a Netflix addict, a shop-a-holic, someone who is obsessed with social media, and so much more. Some of my popular posts include my weekly “My Monday Musts,” which feature three events, movies, or items that really caught my attention from my previous week and my “Top Instagrams of the Month,” which showcase my 3 Instagrams with the most likes.

Ever since starting my blog, the amount of opportunities that I have been blessed with have been more than I could ever dream of. My biggest accomplishment has been the contract that I just landed with Seventeen Magazine to be a member of the Seventeen Social Club and share my opinions on products they send me with my beautiful readers and social media followers.

Thanks for reading more about me and I hope you check out Sparkle and Shine!
XO, Sami”
