#BTS Sunday

Behind the Scenes

There is so much exciting news this week and I can’t wait to share it with you. However, since not all of you follow me on Instagram, I decided to create a new series where I’ll be featuring some behind the scenes experiences and things that I’ve been up to this week. Please let me know how you like this idea! Also, with the addition of Sunday’s BTS post I am officially turning into an everyday posting kinda blogger! I truly hope you enjoy this new schedule even better: Style Sprinter fashion, beauty, and lifestyle tips every single day!

Okay, let’s dive into the “scenes.” Here’s what has been on my radar this week:

Blogger Katya Bychkova and designer Victor de Souza

ONE // Victor dE Souza Beauty

That’s BIG: I just became the face of Victor dE Souza‘s beauty campaign! This luxury brand recently extended their fashion line with the addition of beauty products (created in collaboration with celebrity makeup artist, Dustin Lujan). As you see on this photo, Dustin completely changed my look for the photo shoot and turned me into a futuristic diva. Even though I am not planning on getting back to blonde anytime soon, I definitely will be using this gorgeous shade of VDS lipstick.

By the way, I look forward to seeing you all at the Victor de Souza Beauty launch party that will take place this Thursday, April 28th, at Osswald NYC. Come to meet Victor, Dustin, and I and get a sneak peak on this amazing new line! Also, make sure to check out the blog on Thursday to read an exclusive interview with Dustin!

TWO // StyleWatch Shoot

Thanks to everyone who emailed and messaged me about seeing my photo in StyleWatch Magazine! I am so thankful that you follow my blog and excited to know all of you better! For those of you who don’t know, my hair makeover story created in collaboration with Garnier is featured on page 66 of People StyleWatch magazine that already hit the newsstands. You can find the whole story in this post! Meanwhile, just one throwback photo from the photo shoot with StyleWatch and Garnier!

CaseApp iPhone 6 Plus Case by StyleSprinter

THREE // Custom iPhone Case

I’ve been all about bright colors and bold prints these days and this custom iPhone case that I designed in collaboration with CaseApp is not an exception. Perhaps, this donut print was my response to my dilemma of finding gluten-free donuts or just my overall addiction to the color pink, but I do love the idea of creating my own iPhone covers. Especially, if designing process is so effortless and fun as at CaseApp website! I highly recommend checking it our too and use a discount code STYLESPRINTER20 for extra 20% off your order. Happy designing!

Alissa Chapman in Shoeland

FOUR // Tanger Outlets Shopping

I love this photo of Alissa in Shoeland! Last weekend we took a super fun trip to Tanger Outlets and this is just one of the wonderful moments I captured from our trip. I am certain that I had a very excited expression on my face too, as I was amazed how many exciting deals were offered at the outlets. The Hamptons summer season is around the corner and I can’t wait for my regular pre-Hamptons stop at Tanger!

The Emily & Meritt Bed Of Roses Duvet Cover

FIVE // New Dark Rose Duvet Set

I continue decorating our apartment and with the addition of this new duvet set our bedroom update is almost over. I’ve been hunting for perfect bedding for a while. I only tolerate 100% cotton and it could be really expensive (check out, for instance, this $1,000 duvet cover—it’s insane!). After a few days of research, I finally found my new favorite place for sheets shopping: It’s Pottery Barn Teens! As it turned out, some of teenager-oriented prints also fit my (mature) taste! Well, I have nothing against it, especially because Pottery Barn’s children line is much less expensive than the adults one.
