About Me

Hey, you!

Thank you so much for checking out my blog and wanting to learn a little bit more about me!

My name is Aleya, and I’m a 23-year-old professional makeup artist and hair stylist. I absolutely ADORE my job. I currently work for two different companies and I also freelance (I’m always up for collaborations -email me if you’re interested)!

I have a degree in Visual Arts, and I love all things creative. (Especially when it comes to fashion!)

I am the wife of the goofiest, most caring, handsome man I have ever met, and his name is Victor. You will probably see him on this blog from time to time, because he’s my partner in adventure and he’s really, really cute. πŸ˜‰IMG_2851(2)

I am a true believer in God, love, confidence, compassion, and the power of true kindness.

And did I mention I have 8 siblings? Yes, 8. All from the same two, still-happily-married parents. Oh… and 9 nieces and nephews. I know, it’s crazy. But it makes me who I am, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

I’m from the Houston area, and I love it here–but I absolutely love to travel!

So, why “Sequin Socks”? To me, fashion is all about what makes you feel awesome- even if other people don’t get it or can’t see it! If everyone had the same taste, life would be a lot less interesting. So wear what you want to wear! (Also, sequin socks should be a thing.)

I wouldn’t say I have a particular style, I kind of just wear whatever I’m feeling that day.


This is my way of expressing myself to the world without filters or boundaries.

If you have any questions, comments, ideas, or business inquiries, feel free to email me at sequinsocks@gmail.com!

Have a lovely day, and make someone else’s lovely while you’re at it!
