The Champagne Edit :: VSCO & YouTube!

Happy Friday!

I don’t know about you, but this has been one LONG week. I am very much looking forward to the weekend.

As mentioned, I’ll start posting regular VSCO recipes bi weekly. In my instagram story right now, I have a ton of examples of what to expect so give it a watch at @shannonsilver before it disappears!

Basically, they were extremely helpful as I curated my aesthetic on Instagram. It also helped me understand what filter did what and what types of photos they look best on. That said, if there’s every anything you want to see, let me know!

I’m talking get as specific as you want. If there’s a style you see you want to emulate, a certain filter you want to use, a vibe you are going through or even the details on one of my pictures, let me know. I will make it happen!

My goal is to use every single filter. I’ll start with the free ones and then go into the paid ones. Hopefully it will be helpful if you’re deciding on paying for one or not.

I have VSCO X and every single filter so I’m more than happy to share it and let you know what’s worth it. To be frank, the reason why I have VSCO X is to have access to all the V-series filters vs the 4 with regular VSCO. They are my FAVOURITE so I am excited to play with those more.

Other than that, I finally started a YouTube channel! YAY! It’s very bare right now but come the end of the year and all of 2018 get ready for video!! Subscribe here

As far as the weekend, we are going to the Allah-Lah’s concert tonight if I can hang then it’s fleeky fleet week! Erik & I are grilling and having a private rooftop party… of two. Our favourite kind of party 🙂 he is off to London for the week so all day on Sunday I am dedicating to content.

I have a ton of recipes {bring on the pumpkin spice!}, a fun as fuck DIY {lol seriously tho!}, & more to shoot so I’m excited.  My Halloween costume will be in next week too so I’ll give a sneak peek on the blog. It’s SUPER EASY and one you can do at the last minute too so get ready!

What are you up to this weekend? See ya on the blog & gram mañana! Follow along here :: @shannonsilver


As soon as October hit, I am craving all things warm and cozy in the kitchen. Heavier & heartier soups and stews are a must. Basically everything in this is everything I could ever want in a soup & to make it even better? You can easily whip it up during the week!


While we’re on the rooftop for fleet week, we’ll be cherishing the last of summer {October is SF’s summer} with this watermelon rosé recipe from Lauryn! What I love about her recipe is that there is NO BOILING, it’s sweetened naturally by the watermelon, & makes the most perfect pink colour for the instagrams. A win ALL around!


It’s the end of an era! AOL Instant Messenger is officially going away in December. It’s always fun to get nostalgic with it. It was a huge part of my life growing up but also crazy to see it in whole from beginning to end. In fact, the AIM throwback has a presence here on the blog, from my “buddy list” aka my mailing list – check the envelope in the top menu! – to my blog announcement on Instagram. Check it here, here, & here for some nostalgic vibes!  What was your screen name?


I love a good Tweed moment – it’s such a throwback fabric and I loooove me a good tb. Right now, Express is having a super sick 40% off sale so this baby is only $80. **adds to cart** I am loving the idea of this over a velour hoodie – like this one that’s also on sale – and some skinny ripped jeans and loafers. Not to mention, the retro menswear style is IN {another 80s gem} & I am INTO IT. How would you style it?


I first got into Tchami almost immediately after moving to San Francisco. I stumbled upon him on soundcloud in 2013 and became obsessed with him. I don’t know how to explain it but he has a very distinct style. The second I hear one of his songs, I just know it’s him. Zeal is no exception and takes me right back to 2013 & all the car rides back and forth from Healdsburg! “Zeal” is a mix of magic, house, a kiss of a tropical vibe & honestly, just amazingly produced. It will make you feel a certain way, I promise.

    • Thanks so much – oh I know that struggle all too well!! I’ll def check yours 🙂 x

  • Liz

    I love VSCO!! The best app! Good luck with YouTube!

  • I have to go watch your stories to see someone who actually knows what they are doing with VSCO operate. That express blazer is too cool- I would pair it with a leather mini and a black turtleneck with thigh high boots, and would complete the look with a generally unimpressed face expression- because I enjoy looking thottish but I want to be a cool, icy kind of thot ya know lol

    • Ha! Thank you so much!! It’s something I’ve taught myself but really geeked out over the filters and have been studying them. & GIRL I love how you are styling it. Cool icy ALL THE WAY!!! xx Shannon

  • Follow My Gut

    VSCO is so cool and I love that you use it. Even cooler is that you have the X version so I totally wanna see you go through every filter and then kill it even more with the paid filters!!!

    • Thanks so much, Danielle!! I’ll def show them all – there are some that are so worth the splurge & what can I say… I like my options. Though funny enough, the filter I use the most (p5) is one of the free ones!! LMK any you wanna see 🙂 xx

  • Vanessa Moore

  • spiking this with vodka today while @erikschuchard golfs 🍉🍸✨ happy saturday y’all! #cheers
  • ...& just when I started bitching about the weather: the sun came out, now there’s a heat wave advisory for the weekend, AND these sick 1994 @gucci kicks came in today soooo I guess the moral of the story is that bitching and complaining really does get you somewhere after all. ⚠️😇 #champagnegetup #tgif

  • GUYS, this rosé has been rocking my world in a major way! It’s seriously SO GOOD and only $15. I seriously can’t get enough. This is the one I’ve been going on about in my stories lately!
@DOMAINE_TERRE_DE_MISTRAL 2017 Laura Rosé from Provence • First off, that colour! I love a pale salmon pink rosé. This dry rosé is 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah, & 10% Rolle aka Vermentino. It has notes of watermelon jelly rancher {this may sound weird but it’s my absolute FAV rosé note}, white peach, rose petal, nectarine, & lemon zest... legit anything I could ever want, like I kind of want a bowl of this right now. 😅 The mouthfeel is more luscious than the average rosé with a finish that lingers on your tongue making you just want more. I promise this wine will go with everything but especialllllllyyyyy prosciutto wrapped melon, poolside, in a chic swimsuit and big sunnies. Anyways, I found this at my local supermarket here in the Marina so hopefully yours has it too!
I know you guys like rosé and I seriously can’t recc this enough! Ok your turn- what are you drinking and digging?? LMK 🍉💕✨
