Pop! Fizz! Chat! 01.06

A weekly series dedicated to everything from Q&As, sale finds, weekend updates, sneak peeks and more!

Ah! I’m excited to introduce you to the very first POP! FIZZ! CHAT!, the newest series on Pink Champagne Problems! As I mentioned in this post, I want this space to be a place that’s more than just outfit photos (although fashion will always be the #1 priority). That’s why I wanted to begin posting this conversation starter! I just need your help with ONE THING: Would you want this to be a weekly or bi-weekly post? Still having trouble deciding what will work best!

More About Pink Champagne Problems

I wanted to give you little descriptions of the topics that will most likely be covered (not saying they’ll be covered every week or that I won’t add more!):

Champagne Taste | Q&A portion
Champagne Daily | Weekend/upcoming plans
Champagne Finds | All things champagne related
Champagne Lovin’ | Links, favorite finds, sales, etc.
Champagne To Go | All things travel

The sunglasses in your Instagram stories, where are they from?!
OMG! My new favorite pair! I’m a bit of a sunglasses hoarder, and I’ve been on the hunt for a ridiculously oversized pair of aviators. This pair is everything I could have wanted: Mirrored lens so no one can see my eyes (lol) and take up most of my face! I love them!

Will you be writing more about your career and work/life/blog balance?
YES, absolutely. That’s a big goal of mine in 2017. After looking through my reader survey results, I realized I have a lot of younger readers. I definitely want to write posts geared towards my career in fashion merchandising in the case that I can help those readers out! And besides that demographic, I know a lot of people are curious as to what I do every day. I want to write a post about full-time work and blog balance because I think I do a pretty good job at maintaining a social life on top of my crazy schedule!

What did Pink Champagne Problems mean to you when you started vs. now?
Okay, this is a loaded question, but a great one! I started Pink Champagne Problems in 2012 from my college dorm with one of my best friends, Claire. We started it because we just liked bloggers and enjoyed fashion and writing. Soon enough, it became something I lived, breathed, and grew. After college, I knew Pink Champagne Problems wasn’t going anywhere. I began looking at my blog as a business and have treated it as such ever since. Four years later, I love Pink Champagne Problems more than ever: I love the creativity that flows while I’m creating content, meeting some of the most inspiring ladies and gents in the world through this community, and also just getting to know my readers on another level!

Let’s see: Shoot today (even though it snowed overnight in the city), dentist (eek!) appointment and a manicure are all in the works. Also, this weekend is my grandma’s NINETY-FOURTH birthday. So we’re going to hang with her at her apartment in Queens. Love that lady!

It’s definitely a BIG goal of mine to travel more this year than last year (I went to Chicago, Charleston, Mexico and the Bahamas), so when Allie proposed the idea of going to London, I couldn’t resist. We just booked our trip last night! I’ve never been overseas before, and to be honest, I’m nervous and excited! We booked it for the end of February, so I have a feeling it’ll be time to go before I know it!

And there it is! The very first Pop! Fizz! Chat! I hope you enjoy this series as much I enjoy writing and researching for it. If you ever have a question you’d like me to answer, feel free to shoot me an email, tweet me, send me a DM on Instagram, or ask it anonymously here!
