Sarah Thain - Sequin This - About Me

Welcome to Sequin This!

My name is Sarah, I’m a 26 year old living and working in Manchester. Sequin This was founded in 2010, as a creative outlet for my photography and writing, and covers everything from fashion & beauty to food & travel.

Having lived in Manchester for over 7 years now, I proudly call it my home and love being able to share my experiences of this beautiful city on Sequin This. Check out my Manchester section for plenty of inspiration on where to eat & drink in Manchester!

Where are you from?

I’m originally from Darwen, a small town in Lancashire, but I’ve lived in & around Manchester for over 7 years now. I currently live with my boyfriend Mat in Stockport in our newly renovated first home. You can check out our first home journey here.

What do you do for a living?

I work part-time in marketing and part-time as a freelance content, PR & social media specialist. I’ve worked with some of the biggest high street names in fashion, retail and travel, as well as some more niche and growing brands. If you want any advice on how to get into marketing or PR, please feel free to email me and ask away.

Which camera do you use for your photos?

At the moment I’m using my Canon EOS 550D (I’d recommend an updated model like this), usually with a 50mm f/1.8 lens. For vlogs on my Youtube channel I use the GoPro HERO5 Black Edition (up to date model here). Sometimes I use my phone too, which is a HTC 10.

Who takes your photos?

Any photos of me are taken by my budding amateur photographer boyfriend (LOL), Mat. The rest are usually taken by myself unless otherwise specified.

PR & Advertising

Sequin This is a UK fashion, beauty & lifestyle blog consisting of outfit posts, beauty reviews, places to eat, trend watching, travel diaries and general everyday life.

It is read in a whole host of different countries and has a loyal fan base which increases daily. I am more than happy to consider opportunities and enquiries as long as I feel they fit in with the overall tone of my blog and will appeal to its readers.

If you would like to get in touch to invite me to an event, please bear in mind that I am based in Manchester and work full time, although I am more than happy to travel if it’s an exciting event!

I’ve previously worked on campaigns with brands such as Warehouse, M&S, Very, Interflora, Matalan, Michael Kors, Selfridges, Cath Kidston, wagamama, TGI Fridays, Zalando and eBay, just to name a few.

I was also selected as a #SkiExplorer ambassador for Crystal Ski for their 2015/16 season.
